Why the political climate has little impact on the success of your business
Next year (2015), we will see another General Election played out. In the months leading up to the election we’ll listen to a lot of promises from all parties about how they’re the ones to deliver business growth, but when it comes down to it, Government hot air doesn’t run a business – you do.
The fact of the matter is that, despite what politicians might say, the UK is coming out of economic recession because of businesses like ours, business owners like us; the ones who get on with growing a business by staying focused and making the right decisions.
That’s not to say that Government doesn’t have an impact, or that Treasury Budget rounds don’t matter – of course they do. However, the weather often has more impact than the minor changes that a Budget is likely to make to small and medium businesses in the UK. In most cases the budget can be likened to taking all the books off the bookshelf, re-arranging them, and putting them all back on again.
So don’t spend any time worrying about the impact of a change in Government, or a change in policy will have on your bottom line. The reality is, the only one who’s impacting that, is you.
