One out of every four small business owners (SBO) works more than 60 hours every week, and 70% regularly work at least one weekend a month. Does that sound like you? Even if you don’t work quite that much, chances are you work at least 50 hours per week. After all, the majority of business owners do. It seems to come with the territory.
