The Healthiest Lifestyle:
Entrepreneurship has many rewards; one of them is your Health! According to a recent Gallup study, the self-employed are less likely to have chronic illnesses such as obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. And I would wager a bet there are fewer auto immune disorders, too. More entrepreneurs report regular exercise, (30 minutes 3x a week), 61% consume five or more servings of fruits and vegetables most days of the week. The greater flexibility in their schedule most likely is a high contributor to their better health. With the changes in the health care law, healthy will no doubt also contribute to a cost savings; as being sick is expensive and likely will be more so in the future.
