So you've fleshed out your business concept, you've given it a name, built a website, and ordered business cards. Maybe you're working with your attorney to create a legal business entity and you've signed on your first customer. Your business has value from the moment your concept comes to life—developing the right business insurance solution can help you protect your business as you navigate the various stages in your business lifecycle. Join Meg as she cuts through the jargon and demystifies the process of purchasing business insurance coverage. We'll walk through coverage basics and why it's important in protecting your own business. We'll talk through specific claims scenarios and we'll discuss the best time and how to determine the best method to obtain coverage for you. Because every business is unique, we'll close with time to address your individual questions as well.
