Finally, I hope to see you there. I’ll be wearing the hat.  🙂

Go Box Essential In Florida

Go Box Essential In Florida

 A “Go Box” contains copies of important documents, equipment, supplies essential for your business to continue to operate, and your insurance policies. Everything you need to run or restart your business. You need all that paperwork to keep your business going. 

Here in Florida, we have those things called Hurricanes once in a while. A hurricane can destroy your office and fling your paperwork to the four points of the compass. Make sure you have your important papers in an emergency box that you can take with you if told to evacuate.

Go Box Essential In Florida. Some Recommendations for Your “Go Box”

1. A copy of an emergency contact list of employees, and phone #s of key customers/clients..
2. Voice mail box # and remote password information and instructions so you can change messages and provide information to employees so they can call in for instructions.
3. Copy of insurance policies, agent contact information.

4. Copy of a list of emergency vendors (contractors, plumbers, electricians, restoration contractors, mold remediation, etc.) Make sure they are still in business in your area.
5. Several copies of your “Authorized Passage Under Emergency Conditions Memo or Letter for when one of your employees loses their letter or it is destroyed. This will give them the okay to enter the workplace or area if it is safe to do so.
6. Copy of Listing of your business vendors & suppliers essential for critical activities
7. Back-up files/tapes or server(s) of electronic data.
8. Copy of essential policies, emergency procedures, Business Continuity Plans

9. General Office supplies: pens, pencils, stapler, tape, paper, plus any special forms, etc.
10. Pictures of  business inside and out. This includes home-based businesses.

And there’s more:

Go Box Essential In Florida. Also you want to have the following documentation required  for an SBA disaster Loan or other type of assistance that might become available:

Corporations/Partnerships:  Copy of 3 years tax returns / 1 year personal tax returns on principles. Sole Proprietorship:  Copy of 3 years tax returns with Schedule C
Sole Proprietorship, Corporations and Partnerships all need the following for loans:
Copy of Current Profit & Loss Statement (within 90 days)
Copy of Listing of inventory
Copy of Schedule of Liability
Copy of Balance sheet (as recent as possible)
Copies of all your required licenses.

Now you know what a “Go Box” is- go get it done before the storms start coming in. Oh, and it’s not just important for Florida. We have severe weather everywhere in the country lately. So no matter where you are–you need a Go Box. And, you can do a Go Box for your personal papers too.

Spinners Revolving Bistro – St Pete Beach

Spinners Revolving Bistro – St Pete Beach
is where we arranged to meet our good friends, Andy and Kwee Huset for lunch last week. Neither of us had been to Spinners previously and we were very happy with our choice.

Spinners Bistro is placed on top of the Grand Plaza Hotel Beachfront Resort, 5250 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach, FL. 33706. Phone is
727-360-1811.or 800-448-0901.  Their website is here.

Reservations for Spinners can be made at 800-448-0901 or go to their website ,

Kwee Huset is a Realtor® also in Venice, Fl. And we live in New Port Richey, FL. The drive is approximately an hour and a quarter for each of us; they head north and we head south.

We became friends on another blogging network. Part of the idea was that all the members would be good friends, we would comment and commiserate with each other on our blogs. And we had local meet-ups  about 4 times a year. The meet-ups no longer happen but several of us still get together to keep up and because we have become good friends.

Spinners Revolving Bistro – St Pete Beach

This is a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy a meal with friends or family; maybe take your out-of-town visitors to eat there. They will love the every-changing views. Spinners revolves slowly but imperceptibly; if you are looking at your plate for a minute, when you look up things will be slightly different. 

I was concerned before we went that the name Spinners implied a fast turning restaurant. We have been in other revolving restaurants before; one was uncomfortably faster than I liked. Spinners is perfectly timed and you can enjoy all the views; it takes almost an hour to get all the way around.

The food is excellent and the service wonderful. One of the things that always impresses me is the use of tablecloths: so many restaurants do not use them anymore so when I enter a restaurant and see white tablecloths, I’m happy!

Spinners Revolving Bistro - St Pete Beach

When you go, you will thoroughly enjoy the experience. Head downstairs and out to the pool and beach areas too. How could you not love enjoying this view with food and friends. So, can you guess where our next meet-up with Kwee and Andy will be?
