Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT RN Insurance Agency!
Four questions with Claribel Rodriguez, founder of RN Insurance Agency.
Why did you start your business?
I love helping the people in my community, to know that I can properly advise my clients, and explain to them exactly how insurance works, it's what motivated me to open my agency. Many people buy insurance because it is required by law, but they don’t know how insurance would protect them in the event of an accident. When I explain to my clients how insurance will protect them in the event of a loss, and my client understands the risks he/she is facing and understand what they are purchasing, that’s when I know I’ve done my job properly. To know I can advise my clients properly was the main reason why I started my business.
What is your best selling product/service?
We are risk advisors; we help our clients understand what insurance coverage is and at the same time protect their assets.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
As a small business owner when I receive support from another small business is huge, especially during these hard times we are living in today, I’ve supported other small businesses such as Azteca Restaurant prior to Covid I would host business events at their restaurant.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
With COVID, many things had to be readjusted. When we were not able to open our doors to the public, we had to switch a few methods that we would have ordinarily done at the office to online services. Fortunately, our clients have adjusted to the changes positively.
