What really keeps SME's up at night?

10 November 2017

When it comes to small firms' big worries, it's not finance, but managing work life balance, that is the single greatest concern of SME's.

For start-up businesses just getting off the ground, the problem of having more work than you can cope with might seem like exactly the sort of challenge you want. But while it’s a perfectly natural instinct for entrepreneurs to take on as much as they possibly can, this is the issue that could cause real damage to your business – and even kill it. 

Small and medium-sized enterprises naturally want to grow and that means taking on more work, both from existing clients and new customers. But if your business isn’t able to handle the volume of demand, you shouldn’t see it as a sign of success; rather, it’s an indication that you haven’t paid sufficient attention to the risk implications of rapid growth.
