Summary

1/10

A serious health condition raises questions in several areas for the owner of a small business.

Consider:

  • How to decide about disclosing your health condition.
  • How to assure you have health insurance as well as other necessary insurance.
  • How to balance your health condition and work
  • How to plan for the continuation of the business if you can't work for a while or permanently.
  • How to plan in case a disaster happens.
  • How to plan for what happens to the business in the event of an owner's premature death.
  • How to plan for retirement.

Given their importance, consider clearing a block of time to focus on these subjects. Possibly even take a Planning Day.

If emotions surface while thinking about these subjects, work through them. These subjects are too important to ignore.

NOTE:

  • Thanks to Health Reform 2010, small businesses get a tax credit that takes effect immediately for offering health insurance coverage to employees. 
  • If you are thinking about starting a new business, see: Work: Starting A New Business.
