Running your business can take a toll on your mental health and wellbeing

Feeling responsible for others, such as staff and family who are involved in the business, can significantly add to your stress.

Working from home can blur the lines between your professional and personal life. You can end up feeling very isolated, anxious, overwhelmed and ‘always on’.
