This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey
As the business owner, how many hours per week do you work?:
    1: 65 - 60 hrs a week
    2: About 40, don't push myself beyond that. It is the 4 weeks annual leave & the back       Long Service leave that I really miss.
    3: I work 10 hour days Mon - Fri, 4 hours Saturday & 2-3 Sunday on bookwork & quotes
    4: 55-60
    5: 60
    6: I work on average 70 hours, 7 days a week and love it.
    7: I have a business partner and 5 staff. We are both active and productive within our business, our staff enjoy a leisurely 38 hours per week, and we seem to be back how it was a few years ago doing 60-70 hour weeks each. During the day it seems to be production and jobbing work, and at night it's scheduling, quoting, ordering. It's a mix of being one or two staff short and being extremely busy . . . but it's been like this for a few years.
    8: 60 Plus hours
    9: 50
    10: Far tooooo blessed many - average 60+
    11: 80 hours usually. The joys of being a small family business I guess...
    12: 83.2 hours per week but that is if I multiply x 52 then devide x 50 as we do close for 2 weeks at Christmas. 80 hours a week is spent working in the business (quotes, production, customers, suppliers, sales etc etc) I have no idea how many hours are spent working on the business (marketing, education, research and development) I get a laugh out of these ads on TV about being your own boss and going for coffee with your mates whenever you want, how many cups of coffee go cold on your desk I wonder?
    13: 45 to 55 most weeks.
    14: 54 hrs.
    15: On a good week 65 hours. On a normal week 73+ hours. And on a busy week 80+ hours
    16: approx 50 most weeks. Now & then this can increase to antwhere from 80 to 100.
    17: work approx 60 hours a week not as much as I used to though.
    18: 45 - 50 hours a week
    19: Approx 60 hours at present
    20: Around 50 hours
    21: average 50 hours, with generally 1 night a week through to midnight to catchup when no one is in the office. but strictly 5 days a week, weekends off to keep the sanity.
    22: An average of 80 hours per week at the office plus all of the usual out of office discussions and meetings with business partners and mentors
    23: 70 hours a week.
    24: As a business owner and manager I work a minimum 55 hours a week
    25: 66
    26: Approx 60 -65 hours per week. Kids are grown up and left home plus my wife works here with me plus 3 more staff. I find I can get a lot more done outside the normal working hours before the phone starts ringing etc. I'm in my sixties (have worked in the sign business all my life) but have worked these hours for at least the last twenty five years.
    27: Any where from 40 to 70 hrs per week. On top of a young busy family.
    28: 60 to 80 hours on average with 3 weeks holiday at christmas
    29: On average around 11 per day - 5 days per week. around 55 hours per week
    30: 50 to 70

If you have an idea for a future survey please

send an email to Your suggestion may be on the minds of many others.
