Increased volatility in the stock market. Threats of trade wars. Significant changes to the tax laws. A shake-up in the regulatory environment. And constant talk of labor shortages and rising inflation. It is all beginning to create some indecision in the minds of business owners — after we started the year at a high point in business and consumer confidence. Although I can’t shed much light as to what the future holds, I can say as a fellow business owner, we deal with a lot of the same questions and uncertainties. However, we still remain confident that the economy is headed in a positive direction, even if there may be a few bumps along the way. Where we can help shed some light is in the area of insurance. In this summer 2018 issue of Nesbit Agencies Risk & Business Magazine, we have included articles on hot topics like health insurance and the Affordable Care Act, workers’ compensation insurance, and workplace safety. In each issue, we like to give some recognition to a few of our clients. This issue is no different as you’ll find features on clients involved in a diverse group of businesses: landscaping, natural gas products distribution, and building restoration and concrete contracting. At Nesbit, we have the expertise to help a wide range of businesses with all their insurance needs. 28 BUILDING ORDER FROM CHAOS: S.
