Managing your business can be lonely and uncertain

Running a business can be extremely rewarding but it’s not always easy! There are so many uncertainties that make doubts creep into your decision making. After all, you’re only human. It’s only natural to doubt yourself at times. With nobody to bounce ideas off and no idea who to ask for advice, it can be an extremely taxing time. So how do I stay motivated when clients leave me or when things aren’t going too well?

When you are a business owner, the responsibility of the whole business is resting on your shoulders. You must take decisions and you have to take them quickly. No one else can share this burden with you or help you when things go wrong.  You may find yourself feeling isolated in your role as an entrepreneur.

When you don’t have anyone to brainstorm with and you’re all alone, it gets even harder.  You are the only one who can make it work.  You are the only one who will take responsibility for the results.  If something goes wrong, it’s your fault and you’ll have to deal with it yourself.  Dealing with these tough situations alone can cost you some long nights alone.


With nobody to bounce ideas off and no idea who to ask for advice, it can be an extremely taxing time.


If you are an entrepreneur, you know that running a business can be an isolating experience. You might have nobody to bounce ideas off of and no idea who to ask for advice. This can make it extremely taxing on your mental state and get you feeling like no one understands what it is like to run a business.

Having conversations with advisors or other entrepreneurs about their experiences can offer perspective and help you realize that problems are common for all of us. Getting feedback about your ideas or products will also allow them see things from another angle and provide clarity on aspects that may have been unclear before. You’re not alone!


As the owner of your own business, you’ll often find yourself sitting alone in a room or on a train thinking what’s next? And where do I go from here?


It’s only natural to doubt yourself at times.  You might have had an idea last year that didn’t take off quite as well as you’d hoped. Or maybe there was something about the business model that just wasn’t right for a particular market. Maybe people weren’t ready for it yet. The point is, if any of those things happened (and they often do), then don’t let them get you down!

You need to be confident in your ability to make a success of your business. Don’t allow others’ opinions to sway over yours if they are being negative about something that affects how much money comes into your bank account each month – because ultimately – only you know what’s best for your business.


With so much uncertainty, there are many questions that you might even hesitate to ask yourself…

Uncertainty: it’s a word that can make a business owner’s heart sink. After all, if you don’t know what will happen in the future or how to deal with uncertainties like change or competition, how can you plan for success?

Uncertainty is a common feeling in many business on a daily basis. In fact, some even live in a state of constant uncertainty because their industry changes so rapidly and requires them to adapt quickly. The key is not letting this worry you too much; instead, use it as an opportunity for growth. Achieving success in your own business takes strength and determination—and knowing when to act on that strength and determination is just as important as having those qualities in the first place!  It’s normal to feel nervous and unsure of yourself at times. The best way to overcome this is to gain experience, learn from your mistakes, and keep moving forward.


Running a business can be extremely rewarding but it’s not always easy!


Don’t expect to make money straight away. Things will not always go well … and that’s ok. Don’t forget to have fun and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, from your family, friends and colleagues and, even better, from advisors who are experienced in managing businesses.

As an entrepreneur, your first year in business will be financially difficult as you start out on your own.  If you’re serious about running a successful business, then this is something that you will have to deal with during those early stages of development before things get better financially for your business later on down the road once things have gotten established properly within the marketplace place where there exists many competitors out there competing against one another too!



If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business, please don’t think twice. You will be amazed at what you can do when you put your mind to it. You will keep learning day by day and there will always be many things that you will still need to figure out but one thing’s for sure – if you manage the uncertainty and loneliness  of running your business by roping in external support like advisors, then your experience as an entrepreneur or owner will be a much more rewarding one overall.
