Abstract

The study examines the influence of work and family variables on the career success and psychological well-being of 111 men and women entrepreneurs. The results show that work-domain variables account for significant variation in time commitment to work, whereas family-domain variables explain substantial variation in time commitment to family. Time commitment to work and time commitment to family play an important role in mediating the effects of gender, work and family characteristics, and role demands on work-to-family conflict and family-to-work conflict. These two types of work-family conflict in turn mediate the effects of time commitment to work and family and selected work and family variables on entrepreneurs' career success and life stress. Implications of the findings and directions for further research are discussed.
