A recent LinkedIn poll showed that some of the biggest fears for FM professionals that prevented them from going it alone and starting their own business – a dream for many people – was the fear of the unknown, a to small network of possible clients, having no IT or finance department, carrying out non-revenue making and time consuming tasks, cash flow and also the fear of not being able to talk to colleagues about any issues.
