Entrepreneur’s well-being is attracting increasing research attention (Stephan, 2018; Wiklund, Nikolaev, Shir, Foo & Bradley, 2019) and there are calls to consider entrepreneurs’ well-being as an important outcome of entrepreneurship in its own right – in addition to say firm performance and growth. In this talk I briefly consider what we know about entrepreneurs well-being to then outline promising avenues for future research. In terms of methods, I highlight the need to understand the entrepreneurial “Live as Lived” through diary research, consider how we can move from documenting well-being to enhancing/changing entrepreneurs’ well-being through interventions, and the need to broaden our perspective to consider not just entrepreneurs’ well-being but also that of their stakeholders.
