Being a workaholic martyr. Many entrepreneurs put their business before everything else. They neglect other important things in their lives to work as much as 120 hours in a week — equivalent to three full-time jobs. They sacrifice attending their kids’ birthday parties, keeping date nights with their spouses and reconnecting at family functions to have more hours for work. They assume any time off will harm their business and production. The statistics on business failure, whether within a year or five years or whenever, are grim. Most businesses will not succeed. There are many reasons that could lead to the downfall of your business: lack of capital, no co-founder, small demand for your product or just plain old burnout from the constant stress of being an entrepreneur.
