    No 9-5 work here. Been a freelance web designer for around 12 months now and it pays the bills.

    BH will be the key to my early retirement nestegg :D

    No job. I own a few companies, I just do the online thing as a personal quest to become an online guru.

    I worked at longs for about 3 months, before my great online revelation.

    I was stoned always at work toreplace the boring atmosphere, and usually slept two hours in the breakroom without anyone knowin ;)

    I finished school and college about 3 years ago and haven't had a job for a kinda "personal" reason, that's why I try so hard so to as much stuff as possible from home online :)

    I have a regular job, and licensed in real estate, life insurance, and health insurance. At my regular job I do a lot of my webmaster work and my other jobs, since I'm pretty much just paid to show up. I like it. I get a guaranteed salary, benefits and can come and go as I please.

    You guys with no jobs make me jealous. :) I was a freelancer for a few years but now I have a 9-5. It's good because I require a steady income and insurance right now. I don't mind doing both for awhile.

    Well i dont seem to fit into the crowd here.
    I dont make much money online so i have to keep my fulltime job.
    Been a trade qualified printer for 19 years.
    I desperately want to get out of the 9-5 role.

    I work a 9-5 still, but not cause I need it,
    I do it for endurance and self discipline.

    Quit mine 3 years ago and would never go back!
    Now I get to do what i want when i want. I volunteer at places I've always wanted to work at but never had the qualifications to get there (not computer related) and have the freedom to get a part time job doing something I LIKE if i ever want to.
    this is the life :D

    i freelance as writer for AOL, but for past two years been just doing my own thing. mostly in adult sites, but now starting a finance blog as well.

    my only experience is as a content writer, so i am clueless about SEO, just get my traffic organically from my content...

    looking to learn a few tricks to kick up the adsense income from the investing stuff

    no job??? What do you mean :spank: I sit in front of the computer and am on the phone 8 hours a day, sometimes more.

    But I take vacations anytime I want:D and take days off anytime I want:D sometime days and days where I just go to the movies and have fun with my kids. I went to morocco last year for 2 months, the money still kept coming I worked 2 to 3 hours a day in those 2 months and it was a lot more than I needed to pay my bills and mortgage:D
    How does that make you feel ;):D
