The Number 1 Danger of Brexit for Small Business
The Number 1 danger for most of us is…..DISTRACTION!
As the prayer goes: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
The truth is that we cannot impact what’s going to happen at a political and economic level. Spending time thinking about it, debating it, complaining about it, deriding people who voted ‘out’, sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves is time wasted.
Instead, let’s invest that time in making ourselves better and making our businesses better. Yes, we may have to adapt our strategy or tactics – but the world is constantly changing and we should review our plans periodically anyway. The world still needs products and services that are going to make lives better, simpler, easier; the world still needs great customer service; the world still needs higher standards.
Let’s focus on what we can do rather than what we can’t do. Build on what we’re doing well, keep adapting, keep striving, keep moving forward – and let’s moderate how much ‘news’ we’re digesting!

PS The attached map is the most accurate 2-dimensional representation of the world. Interesting that the land mass (just 29% of the earth’s surface) is really 1 landmass. We are all far more connected than we imagine.
