I met a business owner yesterday who seemed ground down by a series of events that could happen to anyone, one at a time but these have all come at once. Running a business is a lonely career choice. My advice for what it's worth, get networking with other businesses so you can not only grow your business but also get the support of mates when you need it. Sure you will meet the odd d*** who only wants to sell to you, (and if I'm honest I made that mistake at first), but if you do it right you will soon find out that you are not alone. Keep the faith and stay on your feet!

I work in the centre of Manchester but live in Oldham. I've been meaning to come along to one of the monthly networking events but work, study and family commitments have left me short on time.

Maybe there is some crossover here, I come across people who need advice on "potential" insolvency and what it means on a regular basis, but can only give very sketchy information, perhaps this is the start of a wider chat, where are you based?

Excellent post Kieron. I've worked for a firm of Insolvency Practitioners for 16 years and have often thought how useful it may be to chat to people just starting out on their business ventures or those facing a glitch in trading - not to hawk for work, but to genuinely act as a sounding board.The trouble is, once I tell people what I do for a living, they often beat a hasty retreat! Well, I assume it's the career choice and not anything else!
