It Looks Like Dad Wants Time Alone On Father’s Day: QuickBooks

Running a small business is a full-time job. And for many, it isn’t their only job. In honor of this past Father’s Day, QuickBooks is highlighting the significant role fathers have in driving Canada’s economy by commissioning a study that uncovers just how instrumental a role fathers are playing within the small business ecosystem – all while juggling the other responsibilities life throws at them.

Whether it be sacrificing personal time or family time, key findings showed:

  • Dads needs to be alone sometimes, too. 57 per cent are missing out on personal time due to work commitments and 45 per cent say family commitments take away from personal time.
  • Work hard, play less? 46 per cent of men reported that long hours are a common challenge they face and 26% admitted they spend more than 40 hours a week on work responsibilities.
  • Balance is a struggle. 1/2 men say that a lack of work/life balance is a common challenge they face.

Dads have a lot going on. The survey found that over 50 per cent of respondents have financial management problems. On a positive note, financial management software was reported to be the number 1 tool used to assist with balancing work and family commitments.

There’s a blog post that’s now online with more info and it is totally worth a read.
