Heather Arnold Is an Entrepreneur’s Best Friend

Heather Arnold is an agent with Liberty Mutual Insurance. Why do I say she’s an entrepreneur’s best friend? Even though entrepreneurs are accustomed to risk, we are no fans of taking on inordinate risk. This level of risk occurs when we’re un- or underinsured – not just in our businesses, but with our personal assets and responsibilities. Heather works with individuals to ensure they have the proper coverage for home, auto, and life insurance. She also helps with personal liability insurance, which is critical for independent contractors. We talk more about these types of insurances, and other things important for individuals to realize when selecting insurance policies. If you have any questions after this interview, be sure to connect with Heather on Facebook for answers to all your insurance questions.
