Many people dream of setting up their own business. Who can resist the idea of being your own boss, choosing where you work, what you do and how you do it? Being master of your own destiny? It’s rather romantic really. So why don’t more people do it? Well mainly because it’s risky. As a business owner, risk is just a part of everyday life. Pretty much every aspect of your business contains risk. Every decision you make holds risk.

In this blog, we want to guide you through the choppy waters of business risk and show you how you can run your business in a way that protects you and allows you to manage your risk successfully.

Let’s start by addressing the different types of business risk out there. Not all risks should be managed or treated in the same way, so it’s key to understand what type of risk you are dealing with before you consider how to deal with it.

Physical Risk

This includes any risks to your employees, buildings and assets. Common physical risks that your business might face are fires, water damage and theft or vandalism. Physical damage will result in repair or replacement costs and can also lead to legal costs if you are found liable in some way.

Examples of Physical Risk Management

Strategic Risk

Every business decision holds some strategic risk. You make decisions which are designed to lead you closer to your business objectives , but there’s always a risk that they won’t. This might be because the decision itself was the wrong one but could also be due to poor execution, lack of resource or changes in the business environment. This in turn can lead to a number of things such as loss of profit, poor cash flow , missed deadlines or low sales.

Examples of Strategic Risk Management

Compliance Risk

Every business is governed by some form of legislation and regulation . The possibility of failing to adhere to these rules and guidelines equates to compliance risk and of course can lead to fines, prosecution and reputational damage.

Examples of Compliance Risk Management

Human Risk

Your employees themselves can create risk to your business through a number of ways. Their behaviour in the work place can create risk if they are incompetent or non-compliant, while their behaviour outside the workplace can also impact, for example, if they are misusing drugs or alcohol. Businesses must also protect themselves against the risk of fraud or embezzlement.

Examples of Human Risk Management

Technology Risk

Technology may be the cause of some of the most common risks we face in business. These risks can range from anything as basic as a power outage through to hardware and software failure, malware and Panacea Stacked Fan Fringe Earrings Magenta iAzKufxnqY
. Such risks can lead to loss of time through systems and equipment not being in working order, loss or corruption of data and in some cases data breach.

Examples of Technology Risk Management

Financial Risk

There are a number of different ways that a business can face financial risk. Some may be internal and others may be driven by external factors such as fluctuations in the financial markets or exchange rates. Non-payment from clients creates financial risk, as does poor financial planning and projection. These risks can lead to loss of income and to a negative cash flow, which if serious enough, can mean an end to your business.

Experian Business Express allows you to check potential clients’ credit status before you work with them so you can make sure that you only work with clients who are most likely to pay you – and pay you on time.

As you can see, business risk is rife, and left un-managed your business may at best lose income and reputation – at worst, it may fail completely. By identifying the factors which put your business at risk and planning for them in advance, your business can pro-actively prepare for anything that comes its way!

If your business doesn’t already have a risk management plan in place, then here are the basics you need to create one and to start tackling your business risks head on.

Step 1: Identify Potential Risks

Spend time identifying the specific risks faced by your own business. While some risks are universal, others may only apply to certain sectors or demographics. Involve key stakeholders from each area of your business to ensure that every aspect is covered.

Step 2: Conduct Risk Analysis

Once you have identified your business risks, you will need to analyse their potential impact and their likelihood of occurring. This will help you to classify and prioritise which risks to treat as urgent when it comes to planning any preventative measures.

Step 3: Identify Warning Signs Agree KRI’s

A key part of preventing risks from occurring is to be able to spot when they’re about to happen. Identify any triggers or warning signs for each risk and ensure that these are documented too. At this point, you should also agree the stage at which further action is required once these warning signs have been identified.

Step 4: Identify Preventative Measures

Of course, no risk management plan would be complete without identifying measures that you and your business will take in order to prevent the risks that you’ve highlighted. Using the analysis that you’ve completed and the KRI’s you’ve agreed, now it’s time to actually plan how and when you will put preventative measures in place.

Step 5: Assign Responsibility

Lastly, each risk that you have identified should be assigned an owner. Usually, the owner will work in whichever area the risk most relates to and they will be accountable for ensuring that any processes laid out in the risk management plan are carried out. They will also be responsible for maintaining records and analysis that can be used to regularly review the risk and its priority in the plan.

In a risk filled business world, your business can continue to progress in confidence by putting these measures in place. Don’t forget, Experian Business Express are here to help!

“Some risks that are thought to be unknown, are not unknown. With some foresight and critical thought, some risks that at first glance may seem unforeseen, can in fact be foreseen. Armed with the right set of tools, procedures, knowledge and insight, light can be shed on variables that lead to risk, allowing us to manage them.” – Daniel Wagner

IRREPLACEABLE YOU: A Forgettable Moment Of Catharsis

While cathartic in the emotional expression of the finality of death, Irreplaceable You fails to be memorable, forgotten long after the credits have rolled.

“The trouble is, you think you have the time” – Buddha

This one sentence could not be more inspirational, or true. When we find something deep and meaningful, we never want to let it go, thinking the time we will have is never ceasing. Until it is.

When time is running out, there is no more control on your life, or the lives of others. You have only the constant metronome keeping the beat to the inevitable end. There is nothing you can do but drown in an overwhelming flood of emotions or enjoy the remaining time you have left as you prepare for the ultimate closure. This is the focus of Netflix’s latest film Irreplaceable You from director Stephanie Laing .

Stephanie Laing

Not everyone accepts the knowledge of knowing they are going to die the same way.Some may never move on, stuck in a stage of grief, while others have reached the acceptance of their life, maintaining a solemn understanding of the freedom their knowledge and limitation gives them. Still, others struggle against the control they have lost on their life and others, fighting during their last moments to meticulously and obsessively plan for when they will no longer be around.

True soulmates, destiny, until death do we part – words and phrases typically associated with the ultimate love story. Two people destined to be together for all eternity, overcoming any obstacle that is thrown their way. For Abbie ( Gugu Mbatha-Raw ) and Sam ( Michiel Huisman ), their love story, built since childhood, does not conform to this formula. Engaged to be married, with thoughts of a family and a life time together on the mind, Abbie’s world implodes in front of her as she is given a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

Facing the end of her life and the end of a love story, Abbie is faced with the realization that Sam is also facing a final moment in his life – the end of a forever they were suppose to have. Realizing everything Sam will now have to face on his own, her sadness turns to fear as the image of Sam grieving and alone permanently becomes ingrained in her mind.

From this moment on, Abbie is determined to find Sam the perfect replacement – a new Abbie. Someone who can find his glasses when he has lost them, cook chicken and do his laundry. Yet, as Abbie struggles to control the outcome of Sam’s life after she is gone, she finds that her final moments may not always be what she planned.
