Work-Life Balance for Entrepreneurs: Is Entrepreneurship Bad for your Health? See our Infographic for Answers!

Entrepreneurship can rapidly become overwhelming if a healthy work-life balance is not maintained. Therefore, keeping a harmonious lifestyle is essential for entrepreneurs. Our infographic shows how to maintain a good work-life balance for entrepreneurs.

Jack Dorsey is somewhat of a model entrepreneur. He’s the brains behind Twitter AND Square. Not one, but two hugely successful businesses. All that and he only works eight hours a day.

Well, eight hours a day at EACH COMPANY!!

For many entrepreneurs, working 8 hours of the day is simply not enough to achieve their goals. Consequently, to follow their dreams many entrepreneurs have to work up to 16 hours a day, à la Dorsey. But at what cost?

In this infographic, we gathered various statistics about entrepreneurs and how entrepreneurship impacts their health and well-being in general. We gathered statistics about the following: 

  • Number of weekly working hours
  • Holidays and annual leave
  • Working time
  • The physical and mental well-being of entrepreneurs

Besides, the infographic includes insights about the cause and effect of stress as well as tips to cope with stress and increase the well-being of entrepreneurs.
