Avoid the Pitfalls: Protect Your Income, Livelihood and Business

featuring Ruth Stroup and Brian Ripley

* If you get sick or injured, can you still earn an income?

* How do you protect yourself from being scammed when signing a contract?

* How much insurance do you really need to protect yourself and your business?

Working for yourself and being your own boss can be exhilarating, but unless you prepare ahead of time for potential pitfalls, you can be rudely awakened to the fact that self-employment doesn't come with its own safety net.

We will have two business experts, Ruth Stroup and Brian Ripley, in a panel discussion to answer your questions and advise us as small business owners, what do you really need to know to protect and structure our business.

Coffee, tea and light breakfast provided.

About our speakers: Recognized in the Bay Area and beyond as among the foremost business transaction attorneys, Brian Ripley breaks down complicated legal issues in accessible and clear language, empowering business owners to make intelligent, informed strategic decisions about their companies.

More than an insurance agent, Ruth Stroup is a business owner who grew her agency from Zero to over 5 million dollars in premium in under 10 years.  Ruth's agency is known for supporting her community with a focus on education and women's health.
