Whether you are starting a business, or an old hand at it, do you have consistent work?
As I said on the resource page, I have surveyed 1,000 business owners over seven years to get these statistics.
Their is an amazing bond between your average ‘job’s size’ and the so-called ‘ups and downs of business’.
I discovered that most businesses have a high proportion of either small or large jobs and they hate those so-called ‘ups and downs’ of business.
n.b. I call it the so-called 'ups and downs' because I don't believe they exist!
Fluxuations in demand revolve around the balance of both:
your job size and
the size of your actual clients.
It's also affected by the 'ballasts' you put in place. These 'financial buffers' help you ride out unexpected economic crashes, your illnesses, going on holidays and growth opportunities (see here).
My surveys showed that businesses with 90% small jobs and 10% large jobs were in trouble.
They were making a fortune one month and scratching to pay the wages the next.
