For most small business owners, there is no such thing as work-life balance. Did you know that 44% of small business owners believe that the stress of running their businesses has damaged their health? Did you know that one out of two small business owners only take major holidays off, and two out of three work more than 40 hours per week with one in 10 working more than 70 hours per week?
Given these statistics, it’s not surprising that small business owners are stressed, their health is deteriorating, and they have little or no balance between work and life. Small business owners are losing time to exercise because they work so much, and as a result, they report gaining weight and becoming short-tempered.
Finding work-life balance is challenging for most business people, and small business owners are definitely feeling the effects. The infographic from Bolt Insurance below offers more statistics and some tips to take your life back. How realistic are these tips for small business owners? I’ll leave that up to each entrepreneur to decide for herself.
