Happy business owners are seeing a great perk from the onset of their increased satisfaction— increased revenue. Being your own boss brings a great deal of stress when everything falls into your lap, but at the same time seeing your ideas and drive come to fruition brings with it a great deal of gratification. It looks like most small business owners are feeling the latter with 7 in 10 describing themselves as "very happy," according to a new Infographic from BOLT Insurance Agency.
But what's making them so content these days? BOLT broke it down for us with 97% of small business owners saying it is their sense of pride and accomplishment, 94% saying it is the strong personal connection they have to their employees, and 88% saying it is the strong connection they feel toward their customers. Additionally, 82% state it is the opportunity to volunteer their time or donate money to charities that makes them so happy.
