LONDON, ENGLAND, August 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Becoming an entrepreneur has never been so desirable, many people dream of running their own successful business but direct marketing firm, Ventas Central says that there can be a 'dark side' to entrepreneurship. Given the huge pressure that most founders face during the early days of running a business, it is statistically more likely for them to face some form of depression. With 25% of start-ups failing within the first year the odds against a start-up succeeding are small enough, and those pressures often catch up to people and result in depression. For many this can be treated but Ventas Central say that more should be done to support entrepreneurs to prevent it from getting to this stage.

Ventas Central highlights that there are many benefits of being an entrepreneur; the most obvious advantage is the opportunity to be your own boss. Being in charge and making the important decisions regarding the business can be extremely fulfilling but, at times, challenging. Ventas Central points out that, entrepreneurs also have control over the work they do and that can make the most of a person's strengths and skills, resulting in increased job satisfaction.
Entrepreneurship can be exciting and many entrepreneurs enjoy their work as each day is filled with new opportunities. Entrepreneurs also have the benefit of being able to schedule their work hours around other commitments and the freedom to work whenever they want, from wherever they want. In fact, most entrepreneurs are doing something they love and are passionate about.
Entrepreneurs are vital to the economy and that is another reason that Ventas Central believes more should be done to support entrepreneurs. These new innovative ideas create businesses, which create job opportunities as well as increasing consumer income, which is in turn driven back into the economy. Small or start-up businesses often increase local trade and help to build local communities. The more start-ups there are that are successful, the more the economy benefits.
Ventas Central encourages entrepreneurs to network and find mentors where possible. Having a like-minded business person in the same industry to speak to and seek advice from will be helpful to all entrepreneurs, especially those who fear they may be struggling. Networking provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to seek knowledge from those who have experienced the same challenges.
Ventas Central has also developed a way of helping and supporting entrepreneurs through their Development Program. The program is designed to quickly progress aspiring entrepreneurs through the company, into leadership and then the potential to open their own businesses. The participants learn everything from leadership skills to product knowledge and are consistently offered support throughout the program and even afterwards. The Development Program has had a huge amount of success and is something Ventas Central is extremely proud of. The firm believes that more should be done to support all entrepreneurs, especially those that feel they may be struggling.
