Balance accountants bring out stress-busting book
Sep 21 2010 by Henryk Zientek, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
EVERYONE’S heard of accountants checking the books – but not every accountancy firm can claim to have written one!
Holmfirth-based accountancy firm Balance has published a book, called Stress Proof Your Business and Your Life – to help Yorkshire’s entrepreneurs achieve their own balance.
Partner Ashley Barrowclough explained: “Owning and running a business can be incredibly stressful.
“Cashflow challenges, difficult customers, financial uncertainty, long working hours, everybody wanting a piece of you personally, deadlines, bad debts, increased competition, and the state of the economy can all take their toll.
“And that’s before all the other causes of stress that have little or nothing to do with your business.”
Mr Barrowclough said the book aimed to help business leaders stress proof the business “stuff” so they earn more, work less and have fewer hassles; stress proof the money “stuff” so they are richer; and stress proof the personal “stuff” so they enjoy life more.
He added: “We have worked hard to make it practical and quick to read, without being touchy-feely or ‘soft’.”
Ashley is offering a free book to the first five Kirklees Business News readers to contact him at Balance Accountants on 01484 685413.
