`Business orphans' created.

WALES is breeding a generation of business orphans - children who miss out on family time because their parents are too busy or too stressed running their own company.

Research, carried out by Abbey National business, suggests both the children and the economy will suffer.

Mark Odeinde, Abbey National business regional manager for Wales, said: ``Entrepreneurs in Wales are on the verge of cracking up under the stress and it will be their children and our economy that suffers. They are motivated to work hard so they can be their own boss, but the downside of an excessive workload often means they see less of their loved ones.''

The Abbey National business New Entrepreneurs Report found that two out of five selfemployed bosses find it hard to balance the demands of business and family life. Nearly a third of all business owners say it is difficult to have a successful relationship and a successful business.
