77% of small business owners say they’re “happy to extremely happy.” But surprisingly, 44% of those entrepreneurs say they’re working more hours than they did this time last year. And 65% reported they worked at least every other weekend.

It turns out the correlation between success and happiness is more mathematical than you’d think.

NYU professor and New York Times bestselling author Scott Galloway has spent countless hours researching and studying this phenomenon. He recently shared his perspective with hundreds of entrepreneurs and software power users at Thryv’s first-ever entrepreneur conference, Connect19.

A Sneak Peek

One of the biggest “algorithms” that contributes to business owner success is work-life balance. But if you ask Scott, it may not even really exist.

“There is no such thing as having it all. There’s just a series of trade-offs. And you have to have an honest conversation with yourself about the trade-offs you’re willing to make to achieve a certain level of economic success. 

And it’s not the right path for everyone.”

  • Why chasing your passion is dangerous
  • The real definition of “rich”
