Why Rescue A CEO?

Why do entrepreneurs and CEOs even need to be rescued? Because entrepreneurs work more hours than the typical employee. Check out these quotes from this CBS News report:

 

  • It’s not conclusive to compare figures from different sources, but it does appear from these that the average entrepreneur most likely works harder, or at least longer hours, than the average employee.
  • Small business owners punch in about 47.6 hours a week, according to a survey of more than 1,200 North American business owners commissioned by TB Bank and performed by Environics Research during May and June 2010.
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics is the most widely used source of figures on employment and work weeks, and it’s preliminary survey released in September 2010 found the average employee of a private non-farm enterprise put in 34.2 hours a week during August.
  • A 2009 poll, for instance, reported 39 percent of small business owners worked more than 10 hours a day, compared to just 20 percent of employees. Back in 2005, the Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index reported small business owners clocking an average of 52 hours a week.

Entrepreneurs and business owners only have 24 hours in a day and because entrepreneurs work so many hours and time is limited. Rescue A CEO helps entrepreneurs and business owners find professionals and experts to help get things done.
