Success is in the numbers!
We should all know that a substantial part of this country’s business backbone is the small business section. There are over 4.7 million small businesses in the UK and businesses with less than 250 employees account for 99.9% of all enterprises.
Small firms employ more than 58% of the private sector workforce and 13.5 million people work in small firms. These firms contribute more than 50% of the UK turnover, which would explain why 500,000 people start up their own business every year and that figure is growing!
So there we go, those are the facts and starting a business is incredibly easy. You can even register a limited company for about £29, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy to be a success, however; there is no mention of failures in this list as we don’t dwell on negative thoughts.
Talking of Success and Numbers, the difference between success and failure can be measured in very simple terms;
It’s the number of times you can get up after being kicked to the floor – but remember if you are not going to always get up then stay down, especially the first time it happens, it’s so much easier. Running a business is a bit like that, if you don’t get up again and again – don’t bother to start.
Perhaps the real secret is not falling down in the first place or at least trying to learn the skills that will help you get up quicker!
