Why Every Business Owner Should Say No to the Average Work Week this Year!
How long does the average business owner work? Do you have an idea?
According to studies performed globally, the average small business owner works 40-49 hours per week, with a small percentage working up to 59 hours per week. Only five percent of business owners work less than 40 hours per week. This is sad considering that most people go into business to have a work-life balance.
The expectation versus reality of business is real. Business owners are finding that the impatience of millennial consumers means they must work longer and harder to please them.
Without a doubt, most of you don’t want to work long hours this year. You want to spend time with people you love and indulge yourself in your hobbies. But what’s holding you back? Why can’t you decide that this year will be yours for the taking?
Perhaps you feel that working longer hours helps get the job done, but certain studies have shown it to be counterproductive. In fact, working longer hours can be counterproductive to your productivity. You may think you’re working well, but in reality, it’s taking you more time to complete tasks when you’re exhausted. Not to mention the health risks that come with it.
Whether you want to work days or nights, it’s up to you. You have the final say. But we would like to let you know that there is an alternative to these long hours you are working. Here’s how you can work your preferred time this year as the true boss of your company.
How you can be the boss of your company this year
Before we tell you how, here are some of the things you can look forward to this year:
- Working at your preferred time. As the true boss of your own company, you can work when you want to work. You don’t have to jump at every phone call or email message.
- More holidays. Last year you found yourself working during the holidays. You just couldn’t get a break. But this year, you will find time to relax and do the things that you love without worrying about your business.
- Clear mind. This year you will have a clear mind. You will be able to participate in the hobbies that you have postponed for so long. You will also get to bring out your creative side in different ways.

Most business owners fall into the trap of working longer hours because they work “in” their business, not “on” their business. Stop doing the day-to-day tasks yourself and start working “on” your business. The biggest time wasters according to research are emails (33% of time) and administrative tasks (24% of time).
