Protecting what’s important to you!
Running your own business can be extremely satisfying and rewarding, but it often also means hard work and long hours. And while simply making a profit can be challenging enough, would you be able to meet the financial costs of an unexpected event such as a lawsuit, burglary, fire, or natural disaster?

That’s why one of the keys to sustaining the dream of working for yourself, is to make sure your business assets and your cash flow are adequately protected by the right levels of insurance cover. Without such protection, that dream could end abruptly.

Understand small business insurance:
-Start by understanding your risks: Every business is different, so the first step in shopping for insurance is to start by listing the areas of risk that are relevant to your business. If you have premises and carry stock, some of the things that may concern you might include, damage to the building, stock losses (such as through theft) or someone being injured while on your property.

-Know what others in your industry are doing: If you belong to a well-formed industry network, you should try to benchmark yourself against your competitors or peers. This will assist you in understanding whether or not you have covered the prominent risk exposures within your niche or sector.

-Talk to an expert: Although there are many small business insurance products available online, there is a real and long-term benefit in consulting an expert, such as a reputable insurance broker.

-As your business risks change, so should your cover: In a world of change and evolution, risk exposures are constantly changing. With almost every business relying to some extent on the Internet, or at least using computer systems with online access, there is a strong need for most small business owners to consider some form of cyber-liability insurance policy.
In fact it’s the small business that’s most at risk from cyber-attack, not large business as many would assume.

-Surround yourself with experts: One of the surest ways to build a solid business is to access the best advice and people for things that are outside your skill set or expertise.
