As a small business owner, you face all kinds of challenges. There are the regular struggles of day-to-day work, but then you also now must factor inflation and the pandemic which have changed consumer behaviour and caused supply chain disruptions.
That’s already not a sunny scenario. But then you take into account that, “Half of small business owners say they are working more hours now than they were a year ago. Five years ago, 30% said they were already working more hours. This equates to a 20-percentage point increase in the share of small business owners that report working more hours,” according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce*.
Growing and scaling your business are important priorities. You started your business to be able to share it with as many people as possible. That’s the dream! Running a business can be tough, but there are ways to make things easier and more efficient. Investing in the right payment technology for your business can automate many of the things you would rather not worry about as well as increase efficiency so you can get hours back in your day to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
