Sometimes You Just Want to Go Home Early

Dec 15, 2023 | Bookkeeping

Whether you’re a millennial, a Boomer or something in between, your mom and dad probably taught you to work hard. It’s an admirable trait, especially if you run a small business. Besides, if you can’t afford an assistant, a secretary or a bookkeeper, you must do it all yourself. You have no choice, so you stay and work late because that’s what it takes to keep your business going.

For a small business owner, working hard is the norm. When a SCORE report compiled 10 years of statics from several resources they found these patterns.

  • Small business owners work twice as much as their employees.
  • 39% of small business owners work over 60 hours per week.
  • 57% of business owners take vacations but keep them short.
  • 62% of owners surveyed say the stress is worse than they imagined.

But sometimes you just want to go home early

Don’t blame your parents, for your die-hard, gotta-do-it-all work ethic. Your mom was likely influenced by her mom’s 80s hard-workin’-woman theme songs.

Your dad’s dad probably drummed into his head that, as a man, he was the breadwinner. He was, therefore, responsible for everybody and everything. Naturally, he passed that mindset down to you. So, if you find yourself working into the night, it’s probably a family trait ingrained in your heart from the crib.

You don’t have to do everything!

There’s good news. You really don’t have to do everything yourself. No disrespect to your mom, your dad, or their Boomer parents, but it’s okay to get some help. Especially with tedious tasks like bookkeeping. (You knew where we were going with this.)
