Brighter Business is the online advice and information hub for SME owners, brought to you by Opus Energy.
What’s holding small and medium business owners back?
Everyone knows that small business owners work hard. Time and resources are limited, and when we asked SME owners about their business life, the majority of them said they have to cover multiple job roles to get by.
In fact, our Business Boost report showed that half of small business owners lack the skilled staff to grow their business as they would like, and more than half face time pressure issues – meaning even more stress for the 71% who are trying to cover multiple job roles at once.
But that doesn’t mean that small and medium business owners are lacking optimism or determination. Over half of the businesses we spoke with were planning for business growth, and are working hard to make sure the long-term future of their business is a bright one.
That’s why we decided to create Brighter Business.
What does Brighter Business do?
Brighter Business is here to help SME owners with genuinely useful advice and information.
We have articles covering key business areas, from the basic introductions to how-to guides and expert opinion from guest authors.
So if you find yourself having to juggle IT jobs when you should be managing your staff, or you’re delving into the finances when you’d rather be selling your services, you know you can find helpful advice on Brighter Business that will make your life a little easier.
One more thing – we always aim to provide responsible content with reliable sources, so you know where our information is coming from and you can trust what you’re reading.
