Managing A Small Business Is Not Easy

Owning a small business is not a walk in the park. The problems you face may seem small in comparison to those faced by GE, GM and other corporate megaliths. And while they may discuss issues in terms of billions of dollars and your problems involve thousands, every decision you make and action you take has the same impact on your business and its future as the billion dollar ones. In fact, the pressure is even more because in the case of a small business, every action of yours has a direct impact on you, your family and those who work for you. You don’t have the buffers and financial support that the big boys do to cover the risks they take.

You know your business best and are an expert at running it. You know the risks. But evaluating the costs and consequences of loss is not easy. And what about the factors you can’t control? Fire, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters are not risks. These do not occur as a consequence of any decision you make or actions you take. These are dangers, completely out of your control. The US Small Business Administration advises all business owners to discuss their insurance needs with an insurance broker. The broker will be able to not just help you evaluate the costs and consequences of calamities and claims – many of which may not even have occurred to you - but will be able to offer you a range of insurance options and guide you in finding the most secure and cost effective solutions.

Insurance brokers need to be qualified and licensed which may make the choice of an insurance broker seem simple. But some brokers are more equal than others.
