Most Business Owners Have Or Understand The Value In Business Insurance
It protects the business in case an insured event happens and rather than the business owner wasting time and losing business by addressing the problem, the insurance company takes care of things. Business insurance makes good business sense.
A good form of insurance but one only the business owner can handle is creating a Disaster Recovery Plan. It doesn't sound very attractive and it doesn't sound like a good use of time but let's consider the following.
If your business was hit by a severe storm, hurricane, truck or car that was out of control, flood, tornado, lightning or hail, earthquake, disease or pests, unusually high temperatures that caused damage to the building your business is in or some other unpredictable occurrence, how would this affect your business? What about a building fire, hazardous materials incident, sabotage, a loss of key staff or power disruption? Perhaps ask the same question in a different way. If something occurred to damage the business and you were out of action for a week or so, could your business survive?
