Running a Small Business Is No Vacation, OnDeck Study Finds

Today, OnDeck released the findings of its summer Main Street Pulse Report, a quarterly study of small business trends. The report examined vacation habits of small business owners nationwide, revealing that most are increasingly time-strapped and unable to take vacation.

Based on responses from over 200 small business owners, we found out the following:

  • Approximately half of small business owners take vacations – Only 57% of small business owners are planning to take a vacation this year
  • Small business owners take very few vacation days – 61% of those planning a vacation will take just one week off per year
  • Most don’t unplug from work while on vacation – 67% check in with work at least once per day. Only 15% will disconnect entirely

Are you planning on taking a vacation this year?
