A question on starting a business is answered. Robin Tidd, MBA, FCMA, has run his own business for 30 years, following 15 years in industry. He still finds it enjoyable on approximately 19 out of every 20 days. Indeed, it would not have been possible to continue had this not been the case, but there is pressure at times. Of course, there is a downside. Maybe the worst negative pressure, the stress, comes from fear of failure and wondering where the work is coming from, especially in the early days. Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones' advice to you would be: Start your own business as it's highly likely to improve your life, as opposed to taking over your life.
