Over the last few weeks, I’ve been talking about the business owner’s support team and the various professionals that need to be a part of it. As I’ve gone over each of these positions, I’ve been equating them to positions on a baseball team. In today’s blog, I’m going to go into greater detail on the second baseman of our team, the insurance professional. I’m not talking about salespeople. Instead, I’m referring to the professional who can advise us about which insurance business owners need to have, and why.

Building A Legal Team

Building Your Support Team: The Legal Team

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how important it is for a business owner to have a support team that really wants to see them succeed. As important as it is to have this team, it is just as important to have the right people on it. We’ve been using the analogy of a baseball team and assigning each role to a corresponding position in a baseball lineup. As we continue this look at the support team, I’d like to focus on your shortstop… the business owner’s legal team.

There’s something about sports that binds us. People from completely opposite backgrounds can be united by their love of a team. There’s power in a group of people coming together with a common goal.
