Being a business owner means that you are a business owner, no matter your profession.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in business, do as your customers want.
Learning: One of the least desired activities, but the most needed.
Covering your asse(t)s
In my garage sits an unused piece of equipment. It has been great at collecting dust. While I have never used it, it is there to protect my family and my home. And it is perhaps the single most important piece of equipment in my garage.
What is this invaluable piece of equipment you ask? My fire extinguisher.
Massage therapist insurance is like that fire extinguisher, the policy sits there until needed.
When used, it becomes the most important part of your business and might be the difference between financial ruin and keeping your doors open.
Just like I never want to use my fire extinguisher, no massage therapist ever wants to use their Massage therapy liability insurance.
Learn about the best practices for your business to avoid making costly mistakes. One of our agents can go over how we can help protect your business with an affordable policy (forgive the shameless plug).
Speak with a business and/or legal professional about other types of business structures such as a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Speak with other business professionals about the dos and don’ts of being a business owner.
