Research by the Bank of Scotland shows that on average, a British entrepreneur works 50 hours a week. This adds up to more than 31 million extra working weeks put in by small businesses across the UK.
There is also a clear relationship between hours and commercial success. For businesses growing at over 10 per cent a year, the average working week is 52.5 hours.
But there has to be a balance – there is more to life than working!
