It’s Okay to Make Mistakes

It’s perfectly normal to make mistakes, so when the inevitable happens, don't beat yourself up.
Entrepreneurs and business owners are at an even higher risk of developing anxiety, depression or stress and it can be difficult to concentrate on your business, so mistakes do get made.
You are only human, we are made to make mistakes and learn from them.
Mistakes are crucial to a business’s development, but you may be left wondering how you can recover from a major mistake.

There are a few things we can do to resolve the situation:


1. Tell people you made a mistake!

By owning up to it, you can try to resolve the problem.

2. Learn to apologise when an apology is due.

A simple sorry can make conversations a lot smoother with colleagues, so explain what you did and why you did it.

3. Don’t berate others for their mistakes!

Speak to others in the way you would like to be spoken to, forgive them and move forward as you can’t change what’s already happened. It’s about how the team collectively deals with the problem. Likewise, if someone is making you feel bad for a mistake, don’t be scared to speak up and let them know how you feel.

4. Learn your lessons.

Analyse the mistake, assess what went wrong and ask yourself, ‘what steps can I take to prevent it from happening again?’

5. Forgive yourself.

Don’t criticize yourself harshly, you don’t deserve it. Look after yourself and try not to worry about the past. You will have plenty of chances to let your skills shine.

Rivington Accounts Open Day!

We are celebrating 10 years and our new offices in association with Macmillan Coffee Morning!

We are holding an open day to look at what's happening now in the world and in the future, with technology, HMRC and Rivington Accounts. 

We will be running workshops on the 5th October 2018, from 10am to 3pm - which will give you a chance to get involved with our workshops, whilst you help  yourself to our Macmillan coffee morning cakes and treats! We're hoping by running our coffee morning a week later, you will be free to attend both events! There will also be a chance to drop by to take a look at the Xero accounting software demo, get some tips and refresh yourself on how to use the software to keep you up to date with changes!  We will also be holding a raffle and small games, where you could win fun prizes! 

There will be a small donation to attend these workshops, but 100% of the donation will go towards Macmillan Cancer support!
