Putting Off Your Succession Plan? Don't.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

No company should depend on any one person for its survival -- even if that one person is you. Great companies are self-sustaining, says Melanie Spring, founder of the Washington, D.C.-based marketing company Sisarina.

Better trained employees don’t just better prepare your company in the event of an unexpected disability or even death. It also gives you more freedom in the interim and ensures your staff is more fulfilled.  “Making sure you have the processes in place.. that allow people to know how to do your job” is critical for long-term success, she says.
