Why small business owners must prioritise their wellbeing
As a business psychologist working alongside SMEs around the UK to facilitate leadership, engagement and wellbeing, I regularly hear of business owners who are struggling.
Although they take great pride in their company and love the autonomy they have, they can find themselves overburdened with a sense of responsibility – which can mean neglecting their own welfare.
The common problem is they are trying to juggle both the needs of the business and the employees they are responsible for. This can feel relentless, and they can find themselves questioning whether they’re doing enough for anyone.
