I am considering leaving my job and committing to jewelry full time.
I’m wondering about two things: HEALTH insurance, and
INVENTORY/EQUIPMENT (not sure if that’s the right term) insurance.
HEALTH: Is there a guild or other jeweler society (SNAG or JBOT,
for instance) that offers health insurance to members at a reduced
rate? If not, does anyone have any tips or recommendations about
being self-insured? Any sense of what it costs?
INVENTORY/EQUIPMENT: I’d like to get some sort of insurance to
cover my inventory, tools, and equipment in case of disaster or
theft. Can anyone recommend insurers who do this sort of thing?
Again, any sense of cost and whether it’s worth it?
Thanks in advance for any and all input.
