Small Business is our Business

Home-based small business owners have alot of distractions.  To get work done seventy-eight percent (78%) say they have a place “to hide” to avoid distractions.  Where to they hide?  The most common places are their bedroom (45%), the yard (16%), basement (15%), or the garage(12%).  Work often leads to arguments between partners. The top two reasons couples argue:  work cluttering all over the house(32%), and the inability  to separate personal life from professional life(30%).  Other temptations while working at home include:

Internet browsing     39%

TV                                  16%

Family interuptions    16%

Sleeping In                    12%

Snacking                        10%

This survey was conducted by Wakefield Research for Carbonite, Inc., a provider of cloud backup services,  earlier this year.
