IRMI - Insuring the Home-Based Business: Questions to Ask, Steps to Take


Studies show that most home-based businesses do not have proper insurance and rarely understand why they even need business insurance. One of an insurance agent’s primary responsibilities is to identify clients’ exposures to loss and determine how to properly cover them.

This course presents a six-step approach that will help agents recognize home business exposures and understand how to handle them.
