On September 18, 2008 Mom Masterminds reported the results of its 2008 Time Management Survey. All the survey respondents were working moms. It is not clear exactly how scientific the survey's results are, but the implications for time management from an entrepreneur's perspective are intriguing. Fully 15 per cent of the working moms questioned said that they are “terrible” at time management.
The survey results regarding the amount of time the surveyed women have available for their businesses are an eye-opener, with 73 per cent of the respondents indicating that they “desperately” need more time. This was the case even though 17 per cent of the respondents said they work on their business more than 40 hours per week, and another 30 per cent spend between 15 and 24 hours per week. Perhaps the most interesting result was that if five more hours were available every week, 80 per cent of the women reported that they would spend that extra time working on their business and not on themselves or with their families.
Mom Masterminds posed more than 15 survey questions, all related to time management issues for working moms who operate internet-based businesses out of their homes. The complete results are available to members of Mom Masterminds in an audio resource that is almost two hours long.
