The dream of starting a business is an exciting one! Most of us are more excited about the results of the dream, rather than the growth and development from the steps taken to make that dream come true.
Here at IBGR we believe that any of you can build a successful, sustainable business. IF, the actions you take line up with that dream. Those actions aren’t sexy – like business insurance. Those actions are intentional, rational, and are based on research.
Today my guest, Bill Barnes of Barnes Insurance Group, and I discuss the ins and outs of business insurance. We look at how to assess risk, which takes you to choosing from among the different types of business insurance. Finally, we look at the 4 steps to buying business insurance.
Types of Business Insurance:
· Auto & truck
· Workers Compensation
· Cyber Liability / Data Breach
· Crisis Response
Four Steps to Buying Business Insurance:
1. Assess Risk.
2. Build a relationship with a licensed agent.
3. Shop Around. Compare prices and coverage.
4. Re-assess every year.
