Setting up and running your own business can be an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling experience. If you’re a business owner, you’ll know just how satisfying it can be having the freedom to make executive decisions that affect the future of not only your career and company, but also your personal life. It’s a privilege not everyone has the opportunity of achieving. The sense of pride that comes with this level of success can be second to none, so why are so many SME owners struggling to relish in the responsibility?
Well, according to the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, 79% of business owners find running a business stressful. And for almost one in five, this stress causes daily thoughts of wanting to simply quit.
That’s why this Stress Awareness Month we want to spotlight the challenges businesses face, really understand their main sources of stress and highlight our commitment to supporting businesses through those financial headaches.
