The Most Dangerous Thing you Face as a Remodeling Business Owner

 

 

As a remodeling business owner there’s a danger lurking out there that often gets dismissed or ignored until it’s too late… Know what it is?

Well doctors often call it “the silent killer” and it’s just that.. it festers and hides and sneaks up on you… It’s STRESS!

As a business owner you’re more at risk than most because of the inherent stress that comes with owning a business (payroll, finances, HR, etc.)

and as a REMODELER you have to pile on the added stress of working under deadlines, pressure from clients, problems on jobsites.. and the list goes on..

Feel It? Just hearing this list can raise your blood pressure, right?

Check out the stats from WedMD:

  • 75% – 90% of all doctor’s office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.
  • Stress can lead to problems such as headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis, depression, anxiety and more.
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) declared stress a known & recognized hazard of the workplace;
  • Stress costs business in the U.S. more than $300 billion annually.
