I received this e-mail from Randi Carr from Creations from Eden.
We need 50 people or so (this is an estimate) per province to come forth wanting insurance to write a policy in that particular province …we are aiming for the $250 per annum mark, but it will depend on the amount of people as well. It will be handled on a per province basis. All enquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org . Being that I know you have a zillion readers I would love if you could mention this… it would change the industry and make life much easier for those crafters. Candle making would be included in the policy.
If you're interested in learning more about this, please click on the e-mail and let them know! I realize this might not work for a smaller province like PEI, but we should be able to get 50 soapers from the other provinces together to get something like this working!
Insurance is a vital part of running your own business! You might think it's an unnecessary expense, but if someone has a reaction to something you didn't include on the list, if someone hurts their eyes with your eye shadow (see this post on Glittersniffer), or if your product goes mouldy, you'll be grateful you bought insurance when you don't lose your house, your car, and your life savings.
I don't know anything about this, so please write to the e-mail linked above if you want more information. I don't have a business, so I don't need to worry about insurance, but I think it's always great when we can come together and support each other!
