Resilience seems to be a bit of a buzz word at the moment. 

I found this quote on the internet
Business resilience is the ability an organization has to quickly adapt to disruptions while maintaining continuous business operations and safeguarding people, assets and overall brand equity. … Business resilience planning is sometimes referred to as business continuity planning.

So, what is the worst disruption that could happen in your business? Or what are the weak points in your business, what keeps you awake at night.

Main customer goes bust owing you money?
Massive bill lands in the in tray?
Customers stop buying?
Raw materials shoot up in price over night?
Supplier goes bust?
Supplier unable to supply vital part?
Delayed delivery of supplies?
Main number one staff put in there notice to leave?
Main number one staff walks out without giving notice?
Piece of equipment breaks down?
There’s a change in legislation?
You fall ill and can’t work?
Computer gets hacked?
Web Site goes down?
Loan company request immediate repayment?
You don’t win the quote you were banking on?
Overwhelmed with orders?
Can’t pay the wages?

Can you eliminate the potential disruption, reduce its impact 
or make a plan to cope with the disruption if and when it happens.

Remember what affects you could also affect your competitors and they may not be as ready as you to cope. They say every cloud has a silver lining so is there an opportunity there?
