Ways to Deal With Small Business Stressors

Small business owners are subject to a lot of stress, so it’s important you know how to deal with this kind of stress.

Running a small business is not for the faint of heart. It is a profession that is littered with success, failure, tears, joy, and stress. Just because it’s a small business doesn’t mean the stress that comes with it is small. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. If you are a small business owner and want to know how to deal with the stress that comes with running a small business, look no further: here are ways in which you can deal with small business stress.

  1. Look inward
    Not philosophically, but biologically. Are you hungry? Thirsty? Tired? When our bodies aren’t functioning properly, our minds tend to suffer–leading to stress. Tend to your basic functions first, you may find that that’s all it was.
  2. It’s time to get physical (physical)
    When things get too stressful, you may need a rush of dopamine. For your lunch break, head to the gym and workout. This leads your body to release dopamine, which pleasures your brain, giving you a better handle on your mental state.
  3. Don’t overthink it
    Perfectionism is an illusion and also generates unnecessary stress. While you need to plan for contingencies, worrying about the outcome of every single variable and action leads to a positive feedback loop, which generates more stress with your current stress: a stress loop which you should want to avoid.

Stress can lead to adverse health effects like heart disease and high blood pressure–which are illnesses that can land you in the emergency room if not taken care of in the proper way.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
