The burnout level is having a greater impact on minority business owners in the U.S., with 62% reporting burnout and nearly a quarter of them experiencing constant mental exhaustion.

Other data points from the survey of 1,000 business owners includes:

  • More than half (52%) of the business owners have not taken a vacation in the past year.
  • 45% of business owners report that running a business during the pandemic has had a negative impact on their mental well-being.
  • More than a quarter (26%) of business owners report that their work-life balance is worse compared to before the pandemic.
