Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #244

Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

How many hours a week do you work on your business? We now know that the law of diminishing returns kicks in if you work too many hours. It turns out the traditional 40-hour work week is the bingo!

After the industrial revolution, labor-based companies began experimenting with reduced working hours, which back then were usually more than 10 a day. In 1914, Henry Ford cut his employeesā€™ workday to eight hours. It increased productivity and worker well-being so much that it became a national mandate soon after that as part of the New Deal.

So for your own well-being and that of your business, try for 40 hours, but work no more than 50 hours per week.
