Wisconsin entrepreneurs are lonely and stressed out.
But they lean on friends and peers for advice, according to a recent survey by the new Wisconsin chapter of global peer-to-peer professional network Entrepreneurs’ Organization. Ninety-three percent of those surveyed said they feel alone and without support.
Other top themes: Most entrepreneurs say starting a business has improved their personal relationships; the main rewards of starting a business are emotional, not financial; and most entrepreneurs have developed skills they lacked when they started.
More than 40 percent said their career has had a positive impact on their spouse/partner relationship, and 66 percent said their spouse/partner feels starting a business was worth it. About 46 percent said it’s enhanced their friendships, and about 33 percent said it’s helped their relationship with their children. Read the full story here.
