The overwhelming major of small business owners think taking a personal vacation benefits their business, including improved focus, creativity and motivation.
According to a new survey by Marriott Rewards Premier Business Credit Card, only 25% of small business owners are able to do so, and nearly three-quarters worry about the work and responsibilities they are missing during their time off.
To address this struggle, 85 percent of small business owners (SBOs) intentionally carve out time for personal activities during a business trip.
The Marriott Rewards Premier Business Credit Card is introducing new benefits to make it even easier for small business owners to take a well-deserved break. All cardmembers now have an enhanced path to Gold Elite Status when they spend $50,000 a year and, for a limited time, new cardmembers will be able to earn 100,000 bonus points when they spend $5,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.
This report presents the findings of an online survey conducted among a nationally representative sample of 1,001 small business owners with 99 employees or less, ages 25 and older, who travel at least three times per year for work. The survey was conducted from April 19, 2016 through April 29, 2016 and the margin of error is +/-3 percent with a 95 percent confidence level.
