Abstract

This study investigated the influences of business prosperity on small business owners' wellbeing with gender as a moderator. A sample of 687 Australian small business owners from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia Survey (HILDA) from 2008 to 2010 was utilised. Findings suggest that procedural utility contributed to small business owners' wellbeing over economic utility. Procedural utility was significantly related to small business owners' wellbeing for males and females. However, economic utility contributed only to male small business owners' wellbeing. In order to increase the understanding of these findings it is suggested that more theoretical work regarding gender differences in procedural and economic utility should be carried out.
