Entrepreneurs work much harder in London than in Scotland

london_entrepreneurLondon entrepreneurs work the most hours a week while those in Scotland work the least, while UK entrepreneurs across the country are working an average of 52 hours a week; 63% longer than the average salaried Briton.

The survey of 2,000 UK entrepreneurs, commissioned by Penelope, a call handling solution for small businesses, found that entrepreneurs in London were found to be working the longest week at 61 hours compared to those in Scotland who were working an average of 46.

The survey results also highlight the commitment and investment entrepreneurs make in order to make their businesses a success. It’s all about a virtuous circle when it comes to time and money, as 60% of respondents say they would prefer to have more money than time.

As the owner of an agency myself, 52 hours seems a bit on the short side, but maybe I’m working too hard. At least I work near London and I love what I do, and I hear it’s rather cold in Scotland when the clocks go back.
