Interview with Tim Elgar

Linda Ockwell-Jenner is joined by Tim Elgar, Director of Small Business Services, American Express Canada to discuss the latest Small Business Monitor. This ongoing study, of which this is the 17th report, looks at issues facing small businesses. It provides excellent insights into what motivates small business owners and it's perhaps not what you think!

The latest Small Business Monitor commissioned by American Express Small Business Services examined the change in SBOs attitude towards work-life balance, revealing how they’re reclaiming control by working to live, rather than living to work.  

Some key findings include:

55% of SBOs believe their work and personal lives blur because their business is their passion

64% of SBOs believe technology makes it nearly impossible to disconnect from work
