New Just 1 Group Offers Small Business Owners Insurance Options and Much, Much More

Small Business Advocate, Deena Fischer

You can get insurance on your own, Fischer says, but many entrepreneurs have trouble finding a good individual policy or determine that the rates are just unaffordable.

Leaving a full time job to launch your own business can be exhilarating, and healthy for the overall economy (small businesses are expected to help lead the US in its financial recovery), but it’s very scary at the same time. The loss of corporate benefits, especially group health insurance, makes many potential entrepreneurs hesitant to make that leap.

Founded by entrepreneur and small business advocate, Deena Fischer, Just 1 Group aims to take some of the uncertainty out of going out on your own. Its goal is to make the transition easier by providing a range of corporate style benefits — including health insurance, business insurance and liability coverage — to solopreneurs, entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The idea for just1group.com comes directly out of Fischer’s own experience. “You can get insurance on your own,” Fischer says, “but many entrepreneurs have trouble finding a good individual policy or determine that the rates are just unaffordable.” She went on to say, “Of course my children had coverage, but I didn’t. As a single mom with young children, I was very concerned because I know how important it is to stay healthy to be able to take care of your kids.”

As a membership organization, Just 1 Group will be able to negotiate lower rates for its members as the group grows. This is especially important for small businesses who pay a huge penalty to insure their employees,** especially given the Supreme Court’s decision regarding "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (ObamaCare). Just 1 Group also provides a learning center library and is negotiating group discounts on products and services essential for running a small business.
