Business Growth

"My biggest fear is that I won’t be able to keep everyone in a job. My colleagues are like family to me. I know I have to find a way to grow the business but I just don’t have any mental headspace for it from one week to the next. I suppose it comes down to the fact that I’m a graphic designer, not a trained manager. But I know I’ve got to do something."

Caroline, graphic design studio owner
