Running your own business is an emotional roller-coaster.  As one of our clients said “I can lie awake all night worrying about the problems, the debt, the difficult employee, or a hundred other things. Then when I get to the office, and open the post, and find an order for £5,000 the elation is palpable. I know someone believes in me.” 

Few people understand what it is like to run a business. It is very hard to talk about the stress and anxiety, or indeed about the excitement, when no one really understands. Running a business can be a very lonely place.
