Title: Ready for Business Development in Darlington

Afraid Of Jumping into Something New? Ask
Angelina Bell!
Business owners dont always want to make changes
to their business. Moreover, some are quite
happy maintaining the way things are. And
furthermore, may not want to disrupt the status
quo they are used to each day. Subsequently, this
mindset is not necessarily wrong. However, for
business owners that want to experience growth,
being reluctant to make changes to your business
is not going to drive you forward. In this post,
we explore potential reasons why some business
owners arent interested in change. Instead,
opting to maintain day to day operations as they
have always done from the beginning. What are
the main reasons business owners might not want
to grow their business? Extra risk. Growing a
business means that owners need to take on extra
responsibility in terms of extra staff,
financial help and perhaps even the purchasing of
new premises. As such, when business owners are
creating a growth plan, they also need to
strongly consider the associated risk involved.
And ultimately, if they are afraid of doing this,
they may decide to avoid growth altogether. Not
worth the time. To achieve growth, a significant
amount of time needs to be invested in the
business to generate results. And furthermore,
for business owners that are in a sound
financial situation, they may conclude that this
just isnt worth the hassle. Ultimately, why
change things when they are running smoothly?
More stress. Growing a business can be stressful.
A business owner may have found the experience
of setting up a business stressful in itself. And
moreover, may not want to add to this by
experiencing even more stress by trying to grow
the business. Furthermore, they may feel that
maintaining the level of growth envisioned may
also be stressful. Not worth the effort.
Business owners may reach a point where they feel
content in the way their business is running.
And moreover, may also feel that they have put in
a considerable amount of effort into getting to
this point. Which furthermore, makes it
understandable that many business owners just
dont want the extra effort of having to do this
all again to achieve growth. Additional costs.
Growing a business comes at an expense.
Particularly if you want to maintain the level
of growth you are hoping to achieve. Although
business owners may realise the potential for
better profits through growth, they may be
unwilling to commit to the expense of working to
achieve this.
What are the consequences of not growing and
There are a number of dangerous consequences to
not growing or innovating. Specifically, not
being able to Earn more than your current salary
Offer your employees a pay rise Create new and
innovative products Create new employment
opportunities Retain staff because they dont
have opportunities to progress Keep up with the
competition who might outgrow you What are the
positive outcomes if prepared to try new
things? A salary increase for yourself and your
employees Innovation and the creation of new
products and services for your customers
Creating new job roles for your staff and
promoting existing staff Staying ahead of the
competition and always being able to give
customers what they want Feeling continually
engaged with your business
Chestnut Meats was one such company that decided
to make changes and experienced positive results
Chestnut Meats started back in 2006 by husband
and wife team Tim and Marnie Dobson. They have
now established themselves as an award-winning
business, selling their products through their
website, farm shop, markets and food
festivals. Initially, the business supplied goat
and kid meat but now supply beef, pork, lamb and
venison. Furthermore, they have had the
opportunity to grow the business significantly
through both expert support and rural grant
funding. Ultimately, the money raised allowed
refurbishment of an existing building to house a
butchery, office, farm shop and cafe. And
moreover, they have now been able to build a
purpose-built facility at Longlands Farm. And
despite significant expansion, the business still
retains a strong sense of loyalty with its
extensive network of local suppliers along with
the ability to source meat from welfare friendly
British farms. Email -
