When you want to get a grip on business dealings that seem to be slipping beyond your comfort zone, it can be easy to hide your head in the sand, pretend it’s just not happening and then wonder why your little world implodes further down the line. This has happened to a chum of ours – his dear little business empire that was ticking over well with orders being met on time etc. suddenly hit a brick wall. It’s difficult to work out exactly where the problems began to emerge, but before very long they had spiralled and like many a young chap who came out of school and university as ‘knowing everything and no need to engage specialists’, he found to his cost exactly the opposite was true. Engaging with professional business mentors, through a trade body, employer group, chamber of commerce or bank is never wasted time or money. Their experience will be worth tapping into.
