Hi!

Through this question, i'm curious about how serious you are with your online business

For those of you who believes that online business is just click few buttons and getting rich

Through my experience, you can not do that and forget about that idea.

Treat online business as a real business my friends

    I generally work about 16 hours a day most every day. I take Christmas and Halloween off and 2 weeks a year I step away, but not completely. I don't have a business.. I have a job in which I happen to be the owner!

    Around 50-60 hours a week, but that's because I really like the work. I could get a very good income from working a few hours a week, but hey...what would you do the rest of the day?

    Oh man.

    Around 8 hours per day

    No day off. At the beginning of this online business, i did not know what to do

    So i spent very little time for it. At that time i had a feeling that something wrong. Now i know what was that.

    There is no easy way to be successful online without hard work.

  • It's hard work and lot of investisment whether money or time required.
    The bad thing about IM for some people,is that it was never a get rich quickschem (unless there are things I am ignorant at) so they get disappointed.
    On the other hand , because I like the businessness model,I can almost work 24/7.
    I am very happy doing what I love reading, commenting and other useful stuff online.

    For me, it's 3-4 hours/day.
    But i think it's not important how many hours you spend a day, it's important how effectively you work in that period of time.

    I make passive income from my android apps and kindle books every month but I still work 5-6 hours daily because I like to work. Last 2 months of year, I relax and plan for next year.

    When I started out, I worked really hard but once u start to make a stable passive income, u can relax a little. Since I have a kid now, I plan to spend more time with him.

    At the moment, from when I wake up until I go to sleep.

    With a couple of hours break thrown in throughout the day.

    The ironic thing is, the MMO niche attracts lazy people, when the reality is it takes a crap-ton of hard work.

    It's about ACTION. Some people take the right actions at the right times and others don't. That is the difference between winning and losing. I start my day at 2 a.m. every day in order to deal with clients on both sides of the planet. Others don't. Thus, I get clients that others don't and make money that others don't.

    Lately I've been spending around 14-16 hours per day, sometimes to the detriment of my other responsibilities.

    But I've been feeling that fire lately -- the one that makes me excited to wake up in the morning and immediately start working. I've noticed that this fire tends to come and go, sometimes inexplicably, so I have to run with it whenever I start to feel the burn.

    I agree, hard work is necessary, especially in the beginning while setting things up and learning how to drive traffic.

    However . . .

    How many hours a day you spend on your business is really not a good indication of how serious you are about that business!

    The hours you spend depend upon what you have to do to execute your business, what business niche and model you have chosen, whether or not you outsource, the automation tools you choose to use, whether or not you have staff in your business, and all kinds of other variables.

    Successful and profitable business online doesn't require that you work like a maniac to try to stay busy.

    Do you want to work smart? OR Do you want to work long hours?

    Really, the choice is yours and it's very easy to constantly find ways to keep yourself busy if that makes you feel good - but it's not necessary!

      You can have both.

      Some of us LOVE working, and I'm addicted to this stuff.

      I found that out after I launched my first product and somehow it made enough for me to live on for the next 2 years.

      The thought of doing nothing filled me with dread, and I realised digital marketing is like my hobby.

      It's the first thing I think of in the mornings, and I can't wait to get to the computer to get started. Every day is different, and there's thousands of awesome people out there with amazing stories to tell, who feel the same about the thing they're working on.

      Sod the money, we're changing people's lives.

    Wake up 11am check my emails and profits for the day for 30 minutes and then off to Morton's for a mid day T-bone.

    After filling my belly take off in my Bugatti and time for 18 holes of golf at the Country Club.

    Finish off with happy hour for me and my entourage of 12 peeps. Loading up on Maine Lobster and then go check the emails and count my money... Again

    For me, it's 2-4 hours/day.
    In any case, I believe it's not essential how long you spend a day, it's vital how viably you work in that time frame.

    Depends Tony. Usually 8-10 hours, maybe more.

    But the number doesn't matter, really. The leveraging effect of each action and the energy you inject into your actions means everything.

  • I dont spend many hours per day on my internet business. In fact much of the work is done offline (ebook consulting) - even though i only make money on the internet. Honestly... maybe just 2 hours. Searching for new crevices online where i can stick my plug for my offer in.

      Find out a mentor or a right system to follow is your important mission now.

      If you take this first step not carefully, you might lose a lot of time for making mistake, correct them by yourself

      If you find a right system to follow, you could save a lot of time

  • I work from 6 - 12am (highest priority tasks)

    I think about work from 12 - 6pm (ideas - planning - non priority tasks - daydreaming - getting out of the house/office)

    The second part of my day (12 - 6pm) determines what I set as priorities for the first part of my day.

    It makes little difference how much action you take unless those tasks are priorities, and you are highly productive and not just busy. Without the second 6 hours of my day, the first 6 hours would never be as valuable.

    Normally, if you're passionate about something, then working very long hours everyday to achieve a maximum level of output can be a fun. I always wanted to pursue a career in aviation; so, I had started to learn flying after my 10+2, but things didn't go very well. I started IM in 2013. The community in WF made me believe that striking out on your own may very well be the right path for me. So, I started to work even more harder (min. 10 hours/day, no holidays, 5 years straight) to build a system for passive income. If you put enough efforts upfront, you can reap the benefits later. Now, I'm in a position that I can spend the entire cost of my training up to Airline Transport Pilot (ATP), may be purchasing an aircraft or two to streamline my entire training process.

    I think you should put the hours spent working into perspective.

    Working 2 hours a day and earning 600$ is way better than working 12 hours a day and earning 1200$. Although it's double the income, in the first instance, 1 hour=10$ but in the second one, 1 hour=0.30$

    When I started it was pretty much 10 hours a day 7 days a week because I was reading a lot and learning a lot while building my web sites. I was also spending a lot of time on forums and other sites getting backlinks. Once I got everything set up and going I cut the time down a lot as I was just getting burnt out, I also had a lot more to learn as I could do all the visual and behind the scenes stuff but needed a lot more info on driving traffic getting an e-mail capturing system up and running and learning how to do that. Now I have a regular job and don't spend as much time as I did but still spend time re learning things as everyone seems when they make an update on anything the change everything and is nothing like the system you were using so you have to learn everything from scratch again. Also have to tweak the sites to suite what ever Google likes this month since they keep changing things. I would say I now spend 10 to 15 hours depending on what else I have going on.

    As far as treating it like my hobby because Iam so passionate and excited about doing it ?? Not a chance.

    I value to many other things in my Life way more than IM..i.e my kids, athletic hobbies, church etc..etc..
