Business coaching in Wolverhampton has just had a boost!
A local charity has managed to secure funding to help businesses in the Black Country access 12 hours of coaching for free, and I am very pleased and privileged to have been asked to help deliver that support.
Why we put off starting a business can be down to a number of factors. I have spent the last couple of years helping people to become self-employed or start their own business and these are some of the things they told me had put them off starting.
Fear of leaving their current “safe” employment.
The security that employment offers is a strong motivator to stay put. Knowing exactly how much we are going to pick up each month gives us a warm and safe feeling. We feel secure. Our families feel secure.
The reality is though, that today there is no longer such a thing as a job for life. People are being made redundant from all walks of life and those that are not made redundant then have to do the work that those who have been made redundant used to do. More staff are taking time off due to stress related issues now than at any other time.
