Starting any business is a great leap of faith, and with everything usually on the line, stress can become a negative factor that may prevent a business owner from succeeding with the new enterprise.


The major stress that impacts on new business owners, is the stress associated with the level of uncertainty involved, and learning how to cope with this particular stressor, is an important step on the road to success.
