I get a bit annoyed when statistics are released about small businesses failing. I know many Mum;s like me, who run their own businesses and are still doing well, despite the economic problems. I think the key is to change with the market and to make sure that you are seen. I have changed what I do several times in order to move with market demand and I think that there are too many people not doing this and this is why they do not succeed. I think in today's economy we need to be prepared to do that bit extra.
