There is an unacknowledged problem in business that nobody talks about

And it is business skills – or the lack of them. Most people start out in business because they want to do things differently. They want to play by their own rules, and achieve goals that are important to them. Most people are really good at what they do as a business. But do you know what? The training you have before you start your business, just teaches you to do something – be a therapist, be a plumber, a driving instructor, a florist. So what can you do?

Step 1
Use the experts. So you could do your own website and spend hours and hours getting it right, or you could find somebody who can give you a cost effective solution – job done! See www.calmingwebsites.co.uk for affordable websites which look great, don’t cost the earth and get updated for you each month!

Step 2
Network with other business owners. They can help you, advise you, stop you making the same mistakes they did. Southern Entrepreneurs offers a great service for this, and they are free!

Step 3
Make a list of everything you need to do, prioritize it and do it one step at a time. If you are finding this overwhelming, look at www.calminginfluences.com/connected .html and check out the connected therapist.

How do you eat an elephant? A bite at a time!
