Why Social Entrepreneurs Are So Burned Out

Item Type Journal paper
Abstract

We based our study on original longitudinal survey data gathered from employees and entrepreneurs in the United Kingdom. We recruited 1,388 respondents from among 3,525 employees selected randomly from a representative database of the British working age population.Our analysis revealed that, generally, stress is a significant problem for social entrepreneurs. When trying to achieve commercial goals and give back to the community at the same time, these
entrepreneurs are likely to overload themselves with too many responsibilities and, consequently,
deplete their personal resources.
