Question: How can I better manage my time?
Research done by the Business Research Information Development Group at the University of Missouri reveals that entrepreneurs believe time management is one of the most critical problems they face as business owners. The study compared what entrepreneurs thought was their most serious problem when they started their companies and what their most serious problem was after several years in business.
In both cases, the top response was "Controlling My Own Time." And it got worse as time passed. 37% of entrepreneurs cited it as the top problem early in their business history; 43% cited it as the top problem after their doors had been open for at least two years.
While there are lots of educational opportunities for learning more about time management, business owners may not have, well, time to attend.
