    Time investment is distributed this way: you spend really a lot of time on early stages of the project, then it rises on it's wings and you just keep it running, which in many cases almost doesn't require any time.

    I'd say you can invest what time you want, or all the time you can.

    Personally, at the moment every spare time I have is spent promoting my new writing marketplace, or delivering writing to clients through it.

    I spend on average about 3 hours a day, depending on what particular area I'm working on. Sometimes I can spend a whole day. In the beginning when you are just starting out, it can be so time consuming, but the more you learn, the quicker you become and it just naturally gets easier.

    It all depends...

    Right now, I'm working 50-70 hours per week on development to further our brand. In the next 3-6 months, I'll be working about 4 hours per week managing the systems and daily work I'm doing now just to ensure things are running smoothly and probably another 10-15 hours per week working on growth.

    My goal has always been to work hard, long hours to get results, then find ways to continue to get those results through outsourcing/employees. Then once it's essentially automated, I continue to work on growth.

    What a lot of people here miss is the early development stages (partially because of the ridiculous "just take action!" theme that gets recycled here). Have a vision, plan it, take action on that plan, adjust as needed to get results.

    The unaimed arrow never misses. But if you want to hit your goals/targets you have to know where you're going.

    Be careful with spending so much time studying or training. You need to be taking action, tweaking and testing. That is how you learn. Log your successes and failures and develop a working, efficient system. Always be promoting your business otherwise it will never get off the ground.

    It's relevant to know how much their business is making versus just the time they put into it. It's a viable piece of the puzzle.

    I usually consult for 1-2 hours a day, 2 hours researching and or taking training, and hour on average on product creation and another 4-6 hours managing the team and the business.

    This month we are on track to do $115-125k

    In the beginning I only spent a little time working on the internet. Maybe 30minutes here and 30minutes there. And because of spending so little time, everything online seemed complicated and difficult. But as I became more avid about becoming successful online. I then started to invest more time online.

    Let's say a student has several other subjects to study, plus a part-time job. The way I handle this is to donate 1/2 of all my free time into becoming proficient online. So if I have 4 free hours in a day I will spend 2 of them working online. If weekends are free then one day is spent relaxing and the other is invested working online. Or half the free day(s) for what ever I want and the other half working online.

    Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.

    That's one of the great things about it. Once you get past the newbie learning stage, you work when you want.
