Ashley Hunter, owner of HM Risk Group, will discuss the types of insurance small businesses should have on the March 2 edition of Economic Perspectives on KAZI 88.7 FM.  Having the right insurance can protect entrepreneurs from many of the risks involved in operating a business.  In addition government agencies and corporations usually require businesses to have certain types of insurance to do business with them. Many small businesses focus on obtaining the least expensive insurance, but sometimes lose lucrative contracts when auditors discover the insurance coverages do not meet contractual requirements.
