Original content from the Hiscox Authors Series for Entrepreneurs will be available through social media channels, including the Hiscox Small Business blog, Facebook and Twitter profiles.

"We're committed to providing innovative solutions to small businesses through unique content that benefits them, including our successful web series, Leap Year," said Kevin Kerridge, small business insurance expert at Hiscox. "The ability to educate and truly add value to small businesses is a core part of our business model and company DNA, and we're honored to be working with such high caliber experts."
"It takes passion, tremendous drive and perseverance to start and build a business. Those qualities, plus a bit of guidance through practical tools and strategies, can help entrepreneurs reach their goals," said Urquhart-Brown, who in addition to being an author runs her own career and business consultancy, CareerSteps123. "I look forward to working with Hiscox and using the Authors Series platform to share important messages from The Accidental Entrepreneur, such as entrepreneurs should not make the mistake of doing everything themselves and should remember to ask for help."
Stephanie Chandler added, "I am honored to be part of this exciting new initiative from Hiscox. My hope is that by sharing resources for entrepreneurs, we can empower small businesses to thrive and continue to lead us all into better economic times. Small businesses have a powerful impact on the economy, and we need to continue working together to create a brighter future."
