Hope you had a great Holiday Season and Sales.
Just a quick insurance question:
I work out of my home.
I have a studio and kiln there.
No students and sales only once a year.
Do you have business or personal insurance?
Is there any advantage to creating a "LLC'
What carrier do you use?
Thanks so much for any advice.

Generally speaking, if you have a kiln in your home, you tell your home
insurance company that it is UL listed, wiring has been done by a licensed
electrician and you are doing this as a hobby, usually all you need to do.
On the other hand, if you are conducting a home business, have established
yourself as a business for tax purposes and selling any pottery, the genera=
rule is your home insurance will not cover you or your home - you'll need t=
have separate small business insurance.
Some insurance companies/agents sell both.
I have home/auto with one and business with another.
It's also not a bad idea to carry at least 1 million in liability insurance
for the business.
