Owning and running a business can be incredibly stressful. Cashflow challenges, difficult customers, financial uncertainty, long working hours, everybody wanting a piece of you personally, deadlines, bad debts, increased competition, and the state of the economy can all take their toll. That’s before all the other causes of stress that have little or nothing to do with your business.
So we decided to write “Stress proof your business and your life” and in a gesture of goodwill we have decided to allow you to download a .pdf of the book for free!
We have worked hard to make it practical and quick to read, without being touchy-feely or “soft”. So it gives people the proven insights they need to reduce and prevent the stress caused by their businesses, their personal financial situation and the other things going on in their lives.
There are four parts to the book;
Part 1 – Stress proofing the business stuff:
This looks at what people can do to reduce and prevent the stress caused by their business and its financial situation. And it provides simple yet effective solutions to common challenges such as:
- Not making enough profit
- Running out of cash and other similar cashflow problems
- Being forced to work more than you want to
- Having too many things on your to-do list
- Too much depending on you, and too many things that can only be done by you
- Not getting the right life-work balance
- Not having the information you need to make sensible decisions
- Losing too much of what you earn to the taxman
- Other people, especially customers and your employees, behaving unreasonably or unfairly
Part 2 – Stress proofing the money stuff:
Looks at what people can do to reduce and prevent the stress caused by their personal financial situation.
In these first two parts much of the emphasis is on strengthening the financial and business fundamentals – since they are so often the primary sources of stress and anxiety for business leaders. But strengthening them is also extremely worthwhile for people who aren’t suffering from stress.
Part 3 – Stress proofing the personal stuff:
This part broadens the discussion by explaining how to reduce and prevent the stress caused by the other things going on in people’s lives.
Finally, Part 4 brings it all together into a practical action plan.
