About this Event
The topic of insurance can be overwhelming and even exhausting. This session will help to simplify what is an important element of your business. Hear real-life stories from designers and expert advice from an agent to understand insurance needs for interior design businesses. The discussion will include:
• How to protect yourself and your business if damage does happen on a jobsite with multiple parties.
• How to protect yourself from canceled jobs or canceled orders.
• What types of insurance you need, why you need it, how much you need and how much it costs.
• Who does your insurance cover if you have W2 employees vs 1099?
