This study investigates whether silence is craved by entrepreneurs who are often required to work in urban, bustling, and noisy tourism places. The findings enable the conceptualization of silence as a notion that is internalized by entrepreneurs to offset the prevailing noisy workplace conditions. Our findings illustrate that meaning and the value of silence are enhanced by tourism entrepreneurs as a response to working in crowded and noisy tourism places. As such, the study offers both theoretical and practical implications.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/22376||ISSN:||1747-7603||DOI:||10.1080/13683500.2020.1858036||Rights:||© Taylor & Francis||Type:||Article||Affiliation :||Cyprus University of Technology|
