About 3 years ago I read an article in a small business magazine that said over 70% of small business owners were overwhelmed by their work and responsibilities.
Do you think that got better or worse in 2020?
At the best of times, small business owners have multiple responsibilities and have to deal with multiple issues and decisions at any one time. Even the most well organised of us sometimes feel as if they are ten different people in one body!
Stress and small business owners are two things that always come together.
From what I understand, stress actually affects your body on a cellular level. The change it affects on your body makes you physically as well as mentally tired, and it makes you more and more unable to cope with stress. So, the more stressed and overwhelmed you feel….. the more stress and overwhelm you will feel!
And if stress is not good for you, a stressed leader is certainly not good for your business!
So it is more than worthwhile for all small business owners to organise their affairs and workflows to reduce stress and overwhelm.
