If you were to go to a networking event for your small business, would you go to a big corporate shindig with large corporations looking to please their shareholders? Or would you go to a small business association where you could get tips on how to handle the many costs of a small business and how to find professional assistance? Chances are you would go to the latter. The same should be true when it comes time to handle your business insurance. Look for the company that wants a long-term relationship with you, not a quick sale.
Here are some of the characteristics you’ll find at an independent agency.
