What is the one thing that helps you feel productive? This was a question posed to other entrepreneurs by a business owner when just trying to start things up.

“My personal mantra is ‘don’t panic,’ and this has proved to be a precious asset throughout my career. In any workplace, it’s all too easy to feel overwhelmed by the often many tasks at hand and can result in a loss of focus overall and little getting done.
