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 voted 0. Been unemployed since May 1 of last year.

However, I just accepted a position with Cricket Communications and will be willing to work as much as needed.

It depends on what's going on. There are weeks I put in 80 hours, but I always make up for that with some working hours in the mountains, if you catch my drift.

I work 12 hour shifts, 3 days one week and 4 the next. Just finished my 4 days for this week and don't have to be back to work for one week on Wed. Happens like that every month. I love my job!

First thing is put in a no-compete clause. I did.
yes it was very scary, but I knew how to run the work side, which I'm sure you know all about.

Scheduling, ordering parts.. Etc.

The book side was pretty easy.

Motivation is hard to keep up on a daily basis but I just look at it like the harder I work the more I make.


Sometimes I work 50 sometimes it's 80-90. But that goes with the territory.

If you tell someone no they will probably go somewhere else and may call there first next time no matter how good you are. Remember that.

Also remember that you will have to take on jobs you really don't want to do. You just have to. Anything to keep the dollars flowing daily.

Yeah, that's the beauty of the situation i suppose. I'm taking over a business that i've essentially been running for the last 5 years. The owner has other stuff going on and would rather not deal with it.

I'll basically be doing the same job, but instead of getting a paycheck every two weeks, my income will be open ended. However, if there is no income coming in....im in trouble.

This is it right here. My opportunity to change my life forever. If i fail....Hello 9-5 at some parts counter....

I was right where you are, except I had to force the issue and quit

I knew I was the guy running the place but was getting ****ed daily.

it was time for me. Sounds like it's time for you.

Like I said don't turn anything away if you can help it, as long as you can do the job up to your standards.

You will be ok.

Love it. Oh yeah I work typically 6-7 hours for my family a day in a business. I owe them everything for making me realize that you get nowhere clockiing in and out sometimes.

40-50

last year when I managed a restaurant I worked around 55-60

I make less now but I have a very clear career path that can probably be achieved in 5 years or less...where I'd be making about twice as much.

I sometimes do question my decision though because I felt happier in the restaurant industry (as of now at least).
