How to Support an Entrepreneur

Being a business owner, whether a small business or a fortune 500 company, has many challenges.  There is a wealth of information for starting, growing and marketing a business.  But, what about the business owner’s needs?  Who supports the business owner?  To a business owner, the business is their baby.  It is priority number one.  They live and breather their business, or at least until it is running smoothly.  If that passion is lost, there are reasons that need to be addressed.  It would be a shame for a business to close due to emotional stress about personal and professional issues that could have been overcome with the help of other entrepreneurs.  Unless you own a business, or have in the past, it is difficult to understand the emotional and financial risks taken.  Ego and money are on the line. Dreams are on the line.  People don’t usually know how to be supportive.  This blog is not intended to educate people how to help entrepreneurs.  Everyone has different needs.  The intention is to encourage business owners to seek support from a professional and other entrepreneurs to get support to help with stress and to exceed one’s potential.

If you reside in the Tampa Bay area and want to grow professionally and get emotional and business support from other professionals, please contact me at or 813-385-7974.  A support group for business owners or those getting ready to start up a business is being offered or one on one support is available at your home or office as well.  This not  networking group, and selling is not permitted.  However; it is expected that people will talk about their businesses and help each other generate ideas, as well as how to cope with related stressors.
