Economy 'Makes Entrepreneurs Scared of Failure'
November 8, 2012 (Coventry Telegraph) More than half of entrepreneurs have put off making important decisions in the past year because of fear of failure, a new study has shown.
A survey of 1,000 businessmen and women by Barclays revealed a "paralysis" because of the state of the economy.
The research, among small and medium sized businesses, revealed that almost one in five now "played it safe", while a quarter were more hesitant about decisions.
Younger entrepreneurs were less worried about the economy, but had more concerns about the eurozone, the study found.
