Everyone has stress in their lives – whether it’s something at work, at home, or something entirely outside their control. On the first Wednesday of November, we should take Stress Awareness Day to heart and realize that we can’t put energy into situations that we can’t control. Some stress is a good thing – it can help you prioritize your life, realize what matters, and help you put your focus and attention on what’s most important. However, stress can take a severe toll on your health and life when it starts to overwhelm you. We’re here to show you how to turn stress and pressure into a positive motivation in your life to help you focus on what matters most. And if that doesn’t work, we’re here to help with that, too.
We know that business owners, CEOs, and entrepreneurs have many things to stress about, life financial reports, profits and losses, and staffing. So how can you turn the stress into something positive? Let’s take staffing, for example. There is a labor shortage in this country for various reasons – unemployment benefits, closing stores, people moving out of specific industries, and so much more. As a result, during the COVID pandemic, many businesses and industries have seen limited staff show up to work. So why not think of outside-of-the-box ideas to entice people to work for you? Whether that involves incentivizing with higher pay, longer lunch breaks, a signing bonus, or flexible options for remote work, there are many ways to make your business worthy.
As mentioned, some stress can help push you in the right direction and increase your behavioral and cognitive performance. Small amounts can help you realize what areas of your business need the most attention, such as those listed above. However, when you let these thoughts and issues consume your life, they can turn negative quickly. If a bit of motivation isn’t helping you get to where you need to be, there are other options.
At ABCO Group, we help companies who need it – whether that’s with financial needs, expertise, experience, or day-to-day needs. Frequently, tasks that you don’t enjoy can take up more time than they should and put you in a bad mood when you’re doing them, putting a damper on your entire day. If it continues long enough, it can take a toll on the heart of your company.
We specialize in accounting management, warehousing, distribution, logistics, strategic growth approaches, government regulatory compliance, and more. If any of these things are creating stress, here is your motivation to change. We’d love to help you get a better handle on your business and your life. If handing over any day-to-day activities or turning over areas of your business that you’ve been struggling with can help do so, let us know! We love helping our partners realize their company’s potential while helping improve their lives in all ways.
