Why does a small business need insurance?
It is exciting starting a small business, Apollo is a small business too!
When Apollo started we rented an odd basement space with some whiteboards and desks to get the company going. After a few months things were going great. But then there was a big rainstorm (Vancouver has lots of rain) and the sewer backed up in the unit next to ours. There was an inch of water on the floor and it flowed into the shared wall and under our flooring. Of course this is a smell, and of the 20 hours in a day when we’re running the business we didn’t exactly have much time for sewer backups. We’re IN the insurance business and we still dreaded the process we were going to have to go through. But you know what, it wasn’t bad at all. Here is what happened: Insurance sent a plumber, restoration folks, then a cleaning company, then a carpenter, then a painter. In a few days we had a new wall and the fresh smell of paint. We don’t usually get too excited about a new wall but this wall was gorgeous (and didn’t smell like sewer). So why does your small business need insurance? Sometimes you need a new wall.
Everything you do as a
business carries some
degree of risk
The challenge with a small business is that any lawsuit or insurance disaster could cause significant troubles to your company focus. Everything you do as a business carries some degree of risk, whether its ordering professional services, setting up a photo shoot, or you have an office with shiny new computers. These risks can show themselves in lawsuits, accusations of wrongdoing, errors, or omissions, slips and falls in your store, or the more traditional thing we always think of – an inch of water on the floor.
