Each year since 2004, October has been recognized as National Emotional Wellness Month: a time to re-prioritize your life and focus on your emotional well-being. Emotional well-being plays a big role in your overall well-being, and poor emotional wellness can have many effects – from a weakened immune system to mental stress, negative physical reactions, and overall poor health.
Business owners and entrepreneurs oftentimes handle more stress than their employees, and that stress has only grown since the COVID pandemic began. Small businesses that had to close for a few months and couldn’t afford to pay employees are now seeing a decreased staff unable to handle the load and responsibilities that were commonplace in 2019 and previous years. So, how can business owners deal with the struggles from COVID and other workplace issues? Our first suggestion: ask for help.
While entrepreneurs and small business owners may pride themselves on doing everything they can, no one can do everything alone. Whether you need financial assistance, more staff, strategies, plans, or something else entirely, there are resources available to ensure that you get just that.
At ABCO Group, we help our partners in many ways – from financial backing to providing our business expertise, resources, and more, we’ve helped many companies get the help they need to continue doing what they love. Our focus is on bettering your business on the back end so that you can get back to doing what you do best – whatever that may be.
Our goal is to provide our partners with the tools they need to succeed. This includes strategic growth plans, retail placement, accounting, warehousing, distribution, logistics, and financing. These areas can cause great stress for someone who doesn’t have much experience, and the fact of the matter is that many entrepreneurs and start-ups simply don’t have that kind of experience. We love what we do because we are able to help those who need it the most.
COVID or not, we know the stress that comes with owning or running a business. We’d be more than happy to offer our assistance to anyone that feels like the right fit for our team, regardless of business size or industry. When reflecting on your business, and life in general, ask yourself if handing over parts of your day-to-day business can help lower your stress and provide a better quality of life. If the answer is yes, reach out to us for help. We’d love to help your company continue on or expand while helping you feel like the best version of yourself.
