Ask any small business owner and I’m sure they will tell you that managing the business often means long hours and times of stress. For all the rewards and satisfaction of watching the business grow, there are bound to be moments when it all feels like hard going.
Despite knowing this, I was personally surprised to find out that nearly three-quarters (73%) of SMEs are experiencing feelings of loneliness in the UK. This worrying stat, from our recent research into SME wellbeing, is definitely a cause for concern.
We at Ultimate Finance really want to help the business community do something about this. Because our research also showed that 75% of SMEs also don’t know where to turn when things get tough at the top. Quite simply, running a small business can be a lonely thing.
