Organizational life cycle research seeks to explain changes in firm characteristics as the firm grows and matures. Unlike most life cycle research this paper focuses on changes that occur during the firm's crucial early stages. Specificaiiy, we examine differences in an entrepreneur s time allocation as the young firm moves to later stages. This issue is impor- tant for two reasons. First, time is one of the entrepreneur's most vaiuable resources. Second, this approach fits with the growing popuiarity of behavioral research in entrepre- neurship. Nine hypotheses are tested using data from a three-year, large-scaie, nationwide survey of entrepreneurs. ,
