How much time do you put in at work?

I'm a 27 year old male, and im starting to realize that this is my time, it's now or never. Right here, right now, i need to make a future for myself. If im ever going to be where i imagine myself being when im 50, then i gotta get my ass in gear and find the motivation to do what it takes to succeed. I have to change.

Clocking in/out everyday depending on some one else to pay me.....that's not going to cut it. My wife lost her job a month ago for cost saving reasons, and i need to make some damn money. Just getting by doesn't cut it anymore. I have to grow the **** up and create some opportunities for myself or risk being 50 years old, renting out of an apartment and living off of Social Security.....and struggling paycheck to paycheck from now until then.

**** that.

I just had a real emotional realization that....this just isn't good enough and nothing is going to change unless i step it up and change it. I need to put in more work. For myself.

So how much time do you put in in a days worth of work?

I work at an auto shop. It's come to the point now that the shop will ride or die with ME. So i have to do whatever it takes to bring in more money. The more money that i can bring in, the more i can take home.

I'm transitioning from your basic clock in/out to a small business owner. Im going to get my license next week. Basically, im becoming the owner of the business that use to pay me my paychecks.

But when you were trying to buy your house, trying to get the point that you are at now, how much time did you put in?

At 27 I had already traveled all over the world. And was working as writer and editor of a local magazine.

Needed a more stable income and went back to school to be a Respiratory Therapist. Moved the family to KC to get into residency without waiting a year. Spent two years in school and working for free.

After 9 years I got tired of people dying on me daily and changed careers. Went to work 10-12 hours. Took I.T. courses at night. Studied 2-4 hours after class. Went to bed at 2:00am. got up at 6:00am. Did that for two ****ing years.

Moral of the story is you only live once in life. The worst thing that you will have to live with in life is regret. There ain't no do-overs.

The good news is that this kind of schedule is rare for me. I'm typically running 40-50 hours a week.
What kind of advertising exactly?

I don't mean to be Mr. Grammar Nazi here, but you put a whole bunch of incomplete sentences in that response. I don't know if I'd want you as a writer and editor.

As for the OP I started my own business at 28 and just turned 50,so imo you're getting serious at the right time i.e. don't wait much longer.Good luck.

I work 30 hours M-W. Then 10 hours combined on Thursday and Friday. Typically end up splitting those to 6 on Thursday and 4 on Friday. But of course I have freedom to pretty much do whatever works for me on any given day. I want to leave for a few hours one day and come back later...so be it. Essentially as long as I am working 40 hours then it doesn't matter.

All that being said, I don't exactly love my job, but it was a good job to get right after finishing my masters so we were able to buy a nice house five months after I graduated. I will be looking to get my license after my wedding in April to increase my pay range and then when the time is right open my own practice to have complete freedom.

If that doesn't work my fall back plan is sports betting. That is a good second option right?

Thanks. I have tons of resources at my disposal, and the business it up and going already....I just gotta figure out a way to make the most of it and keep myself motivated.

I'll be honest, running my own business and being 100% self reliant on my income scares the shit out of me. It's a big change.

I did it for a while and was successful. I was recruited back into a startup that has since skyrocketed, but you're right...it's scary stuff. It's also very taxing and stressful. If you do it right and keep a level head, you'll be fine. The biggest thing, I think, that causes small startups to fail is that they run into a little success and try to get too big too fast. Then when a downturn hits (and it will) you're not built to weather the storm. Stay within the limits of the company and always be prepared for a dip in business.
