If you got sued tomorrow, would you be at risk of losing everything? Owners who operate with an LLC, Inc., or Trust have "disaster containment" so that if one folds, the rest of the business survives. They also have lots of insurance. Find out whether your setup is adequate.
Another question we'll address is whether your trust is protecting you the way you think. Trusts have one key advantage but in many respects they're now second to the LLC.
This presentation addresses questions for both new and experienced owners looking to select a going-forward structure, make a change, or gain confidence in their current setup.
