Each month, more than 500,000 entrepreneurs set up shop. Of those, African-American women are the fastest growing group, and women-owned small businesses overall are growing at 1 ½ times the national average.

With the explosive growth of small businesses, it is important for business owners to know how to adequately protect against risk. That’s why Nationwide recently partnered with Centric TV and Dr. Lynn Richardson — an author, speaker and licensed celebrity financial coach — to give business owners tips on protecting what they’ve worked so hard to build with the right business insurance coverage.

Viewers can watch the Nationwide sponsored vignettes that will air during Centric’s new show “Queen Boss.” The reality-based television series is a business competition featuring female African-American entrepreneurs from across the country who will compete for a $25,000 prize to jump-start their businesses. The show, hosted by TV personality and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, will premier this month.
