Do you ever wonder if you're the only woman who runs errands in sweats so it will look like she went to the gym?

Sometimes we get bent out of shape about things over which we either have no control or little way to influence.

Christmas is a time for pavlova, back yard cricket and presents. For many business owners though it's also a time of financial and emotional stress.
