Small things can quickly add up as a business owner so its important to be proactive and understand when big action is needed. Managing staff, checking that tasks and jobs are being conducted properly and efficiently as well as delegating to others can all add up to stress. Letting go of your business and ensuring other members hold the same standards and diligence to their work as you do can be tough. Taking back control of the business is a crucial step in removing stress from a situation.

All entrepreneurs surround themselves with support. This support needs to be both personal and professional, for example positive friends and family alongside an experienced franchisor and mentor. Award Leisure support franchisees continuously form the initial enquiry to opening a new showroom. An experienced mentor is a great way to receive great support and help to manage stress, this is because these mentors have already experienced stress and have a better understanding of how to deal with stress as a business owner.

Take breaks away from your business by going on a walk, spending time with family, take time to exercise.
