SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS HAPPIER THAN THEY WERE AS EMPLOYEES
February 4 2016.



Despite sacrificing family time, sleep and income, company owners claim they are happier than they when they worked for someone else, research finds.


The study, commissioned by online print retailer instantprint, has revealed what business owners across the UK are worrying about, what makes them happy, and their wellbeing.

Family time is the biggest sacrifice of owning a business (46 per cent), followed by holidays (45 per cent), and income (40 per cent).

One in eight respondents only sleep three to four hours per night, half of what is recommended by the NHS. Those who responded that owning a business made them feel more stressed were the least likely to get the recommended hours of sleep.

Furthermore, more than one in five are potentially risking their health by missing a medical appointment due to work commitments.
