Knowing how to manage stress is a key element for running a business whether that’s brick and mortar operation, an online store, or a professional consulting business.
Here are tips on managing stress for small business owners:
Know Your Mission and Vision
Truly know the mission or purpose of your business. The deeper your understanding of why you operate your business, and the solution it offers to the customer, the stronger will be your conviction to have staying power when times are uncertain.
Find Supportive Colleagues
Pull together a network of supportive relationships. Maybe you meet individually with others who can offer their constructive input on your operations.
Hire a Bookkeeper or Accountant You can Trust
A bookkeeper or accountant does more than mechanically enter income and expenses for you. Jackie David, an accountant with web design clients around Glendale, California and La Canada Flintridge, says a valuable bookkeeper will provide the data you need to plan your business strategically.
Get Essential Nutrients Your Body Needs
We often separate our business health from our personal health. But managing personal health is necessary to function in business. I’ve found an Omega-3 supplement that has helped me manage through an intensely stressful time, especially with my family.

I’ve found that a good 30 minutes of running and walking boosts my energy levels and helps me to focus. I also enjoy kayaking in the Ventura Harbor when I get a chance or driving up the coast to kayak. That gives me something to look forward to.
