So what does a book about asset protection have to do with the average American business owner who may be wondering if they will be able to pay the weekly salary of their two, already underpaid employees? Plenty, I had to admit after reading "Asset Protection for Business Owners and High-Income Earners: How to Protect What You Own From Lawsuits and Creditors" by Alan Northcott.
With 290 pages to spare, Northcott uses this space wisely, by laying out the case for the necessity that is asset protection. "...[C]omplacency is not an option," he writes, because after all, there is a one in five-- or three-- chance that you may be sued next year.
Then, in simple, layman's terms and through the use of sporadic personal case studies, he makes an excellent argument for why it is a good idea to (figuratively, and as the book cover suggests) keep assets under lock and key plus why business assets should be separated from personal assets. Covering such useful topics as the how tos of business entity formation, prenuptual agreements, wills, and more, he gets to the bottom line: If you value it, protect it. The book is an excellent read for any ethical-non-Swiss-account-holding business owner.
