Are you part time or FULL time?

132 replies
Fellow Warriors!

Let's do a little census up in here and find out which of us are doing Internet Marketing part time, and who has finally bridged over to earn a full-time income online.

And yes, part time work for a full time wage counts as full time!

        I just come and go, this is my only job though which is a great feeling. But I certainly do not work all day anymore on this, but I got out of the groove when I moved to California for the summer.

        So im back at it now harder but im still only working about 5 hours a day right now. Im gonna up my efforts here soon and work at least 8 hours a day to really make my profits explode hopefully,lol. But in the past I use to work up to 15 hours a day, so it varies from time to time. So im full time but with part time hours,lol.

    Full time but I also drive a van for Sainsbury at the weekend.

    No kidding, sitting in front of a PC all day was doing my head in so I took a physical job delivering shopping for a UK Supermarket.

    I earn next nothing doing it but wow it's so different that it really helps me focus.

    Actually I'm better at delivering shopping than I am at IM.

    As one of the part timers I find it very encouraging to see that so many of you are full-time.

    A question for you full-timers though. How did you know it was time to go full-time?

    I read somewhere that you should make sure you've made enough money to cover all living expenses (including the fun stuff) for three months before considering quitting your job. I'm nowhere close to that, but would like to know how you all made your decision.

    Currently part time looking forward to the full time with part time hours!! Creating an online business is all about freedom...definitely don't plan to spend 8-14 hours a day tapping on the keyboard and burning my retinas!

    My definition of full time is related to earning enough to pay all bills with plenty left over for savings, investing, toys, and most of all travel. I'm shooting for the Tim Ferriss 4-hour work week strategy.

      I'm employed as an Internet Consultant. But what I do, working with offline clients is the same things we discuss here. I also do projects for Internet Marketers, plus I run multiple PPC campaigns..........So don't know whether I am part time or full time. Besides my offline pay, I earn a lot from IM. Maybe I am full time.

      Oh.....By the way, I only get to sleep for 4 hours a day. Sometime very rarely I sleep for 6 hours and I love it.

    My question is how many hours do you consider full time?

    I spend about 20 hours a week actively working on my site, blogs, social marketing, etc. It's not the traditional 40 hour job but is internet marketing supposed to be 40 hours a week? I don't have another job so I guess I am full time but I am working part time hours.

    I'm confused! :lol:

      I guess it's not about how many hours we are working on, but if we do IM for a half, and in meantime we also have a day job, it would be considered as a part time.

    Full time. Spreading time between about 3 different projects, but they're all online and the source of my income.

    I just graduated university in May so I've only been full time for a few months, but it's been a good experience. I'm going to Australia in Sept for 3 months, so I'm hoping I can continue making reasonable income without working FT ; )

    I have been working full-time on my Internet Marketing Business since one year ago and I am enjoying it too. I have never been as happy as working on my internet business. I am really enjoying the process and learning phase too. I took 3 years to finally understand internet marketing and how to earn a living from internet marketing. I am proud of my little achievements every day and have never look back since.
