Ever entered your social media password and got an error message and felt your stomach drop? What would you do if, instead of a typo, you’d been locked out by a hack?

In this episode of the What If Mini-Series, Ebonie Allard walks you through her experience of having her social media accounts hacked. She thought they were after her credit card details. They weren’t, it was much worse.

Key Takeaway

A contingency plan is as much about what you can prevent as what you can prepare for.

We talk about

  • How the hack was discovered
  • A walkthrough of the crisis as it unfolded
  • How the crisis was finally resolved
  • What you can do now to protect your business
  • The surprising lessons Ebonie learned from the experience


If this topic makes you nervous, I want to invite you to make a plan for the things that you can't plan for by joining my live workshop on May 18th.

I'm going to talk you through:

  • What a crisis really is (and why it's not what you think)
  • Real-world examples that have happened to entrepreneurs just like you (because you're secretly thinking this stuff only happens to bigger businesses and celebreneurs)
  • A simple step-by-step process to build a plan for the things you can't plan for so that you have peace of mind when your head hits the pillow or the sh!t hits the fan.
