Do you enjoy working online or suffer from it?

16 replies
It is very nice that you can work at home and start your own career by internet marketing, but with that living style, maybe you are restrict to the internet, and don't often go out, right? Do you feel a little dull sometimes? Would you like to share your working and living style with me? Because these days I found myself gaining weight through that work style.:rolleyes:

When I first got into the business, I would exhaust myself, but then I realized that if a exhausted myself on a work day, it would negatively affect for the rest of the week.
      I admire you find the balance of your life and do you need to post a lot and do much work as repeating again and again?

    Very true. Coming from construction background where I was highly active all day long.. and then real estate where I was out and about the majority of the day.. this is quite the switch for me.

    Still would not change it for the world. Neither one of those business allow me the freedom to up and move and travel at the drop of a hat and never once miss a beat with "work"

    In 2013 We lived in New York, California and North Carolina.. and now have plans on going to south america or mexico.

    So yeah.. I am not in as great of shape as I once was.. so I am working to find the balance ... but totally worth sacrificing my body for my lovely Sisi lol =-)

        wow, what software for that? I am very interested, and some repeating work, I really would like to find one effective way to complete it. I think I still have a long way to go. Thank you for your sharing.

    It was dull and a crap-ton of work when I started...but you've gotta pay your dues.

    Now, I take a lot of time off but I will have periods where I work a lot. But as you meet people, join mastermind groups, network, and grow in whatever industry you're in, you'll feel more connected and it doesn't get dull.

    Plus, I know very few "jobs" that are as exciting as being an internet entrepreneur

      U seem very going well with that. Thank you so much for collecting so positive replies. For that, I would insist on the work and hope I can also be the internet entrepreneur.

    It can be very easy to get comfortable working at home because face it you are at maybe the most comfortable place you can be.

    You will have to be disciplined for it to really work which is one thing that I am learning myself.

    So what I do is set a routine for myself.

    At night I write out a list of things to I need to complete for the next day.

    Once I wake up I do my meditations, have a cup of tea while I write down goals and go over goals. After this I work-out for 30mins or so then hop in the shower.

    Once I am fresh and clean and ready to tackle the day i have a set in front of my screen and I work for a hour str8 on one thing take a brake and then rinse and repeat

    I enjoy this lifestyle because I can make money from home and be my own boss. The thing is I have to be a boss for myself which can be a task sometimes when i want to take a nap and my comfortable bed t so close in range. Hope this has helped!

    To tell you the truth I was working an office job 8hrs+ a day before Internet Marketing so that is no different, I also had a commute which added another couple of hours. The Beauty of working for yourself is that you can pick and choose your hours so it is easy to stop go for a walk for an hour or so and start again.
    I'm seriously looking into a standing desk set up where I stand and work at my laptop rather than sitting all day.
    Also now that I work for myself I am much more focused and rather than spend 8hrs a day mastering the art of paper shuffling I tend to get a lot more work done quicker.

    To be honest, I've found myself putting on weight too. NOT to much... I make a habit now to enjoy more activities with friends and to do more sport. Takes my mind of the work for a bit...

    You will enjoy when you love the work you do online. Find your passion and you'll never loss enthusiasm to get things done.

    I do enjoy working online because I feel like I am working for me, not anyone else and I know that everything that I do is for my benefit, not someone else.

    That being said, I think you have to treat IM just like any other job - set strict hours and timelines and stick to them. Work when you are working and then have time for offline stuff (eg, gym, socializing, etc.) If you do not set time boundaries like this, you can wind up sitting 12-14 hours a day in front of a computer screen and then I think you do wind up suffering a bit.
