When you’re running a small business, time is literally money. Without a salary or a clock to punch, the only time you’re making money is when you’re working. Unfortunately, this leads too many small business owners to work extra hours – and eventually burn out.
This infographic from Maven Link demonstrates the value of time for small business owners. A few highlights:
- 72 percent of small business owners work evenings and weekends.
- 53 percent say the hardest thing about their business is wearing multiple hats – and 46 percent fill 3 to 4 employee roles on a given day.
- 25 percent, or 1 in 4, say that one extra hour in a working day is worth more than $500 to them.
There’s no question that if you want your small business to succeed, you need to put in the work, but it doesn’t have to be 60 to 80 hours’ worth every week. Follow these tips to squeeze more hours out of your working days and get more done in less time.
