What has changed in the past five years for small business owners? Pretty much everything, according to new research from Sage North America.
Sage, a global supplier of business management software, summarized its Reinvention of Small Business survey in a one-page infographic that looks at how business owners are doing more, often with less.
Among its findings: small business owners are working 42 percent more hours per week than five years ago. On top of longer hours, 40 percent said they are taking less vacation time than they did five years ago. And 72 percent of business owners are working longer days and more weekends.
