Abstract

This research is about business and home life. It explores how households which work for themselves (entrepreneurial households) harmonise the demands of their businesses with family life and fulfilment of household responsibilities. The primary focus of this research is on the financial consequences of their work choices for both the household functioning and family members. The main areas of consideration are formed around the role of family members in management and control of household and business money, their attitudes towards spending and debt, patterns of income sharing at home, banking, and credit access and usage. This study responds to recent calls for more research on the impact of entrepreneurship on family dynamics and family well-being (Jennings et al., 2013).
