    Am I the only one working without any days off? I mean I work even on Saturday, Sunday. Maybe I should take some rest, but money never waits. What about you?

    Happened with me too when i was struggling (actually still but not that much ) . Now there is a bit of piece of mind .

    Start taking some classes , go to gym etc . I started taking photography classes and it is a great stress buster .

    Yes, it's not about the money, I am doing extremely good in IM, but I don't know what to do besides IM. I don't play video games (sometimes I do play GTA) or stuff like that. Maybe I could go on vocations right now (will go this Summer to Thailand with a few others, so I will be having much free time then I hope). IRL here is nothing to do as well, I am still too young to settle somewhere else. Gotta start making changes ASAP, but I still need much time for IM. I could go to gym, but what age should you be to get it? Or no age limitation?

    I also work everyday, but I'm tight on money. I'm currently writing every penny that I make at $0.02 per word, and I have to work a lot if I want to pay my bills.

    I did that 7 day a week thing for a long time... years and the days were 14 - 15 hours too. I rarely put in that kind of day any longer(have done a few recently) and no longer work 7 days either.

    You'll feel much better not killing yourself and taking time to live like a human. The money will be there when you get back so work on stopping the addiction and living a bit lest you end up beat up, worn out and burnt to a crisp.

    If I were you, I would start travelling the world ASAP, with people or alone. Best way imo to spend your time and money. I mean if you are bored at home and dont have to work that much, why not explore the world and meet new people?

    Workin 7/7 here, too, brother. Can't tell the difference between day and night sometimes... lol

    I understand your problem - lack of social and non-work related activities.

    My advice - join some activities clubs - be it sports, hobbies, dancing.. whatever. Great way to meet new people, develop new interests, etc.
    Definitely do sports - no matter if they are in a group or not - you gotta keep fit, develops healthy habits, better time management.
    Go out with friends, make some new ones, be proactive. The benefits of that are countless. Traveling is definitely an awesome thing to do.

    I like to take Saturdays off. I work for a company 9-5 during the week, then work on Internet marketing after work for 3-4 hours everyday plus all day Sunday. 1 day off for beers footy etc feels about right for me.

    Make the sacrifices you need to make now. Invest the money you have coming in, and don't take a step back till you can either replace yourself with someone else, or you're satisfied with the income that's been steadily pouring in.

    Note: This applies if you have a 5 year retirement plan.

    Great replies!
    I am going to travel the world for sure, already have a plan where, what to meet, how long, etc. Yeah, I will do it alone, maybe with my IM partner.
    Most of my income is on 99% autopilot, so yeah, I can do that and still be making money, the only one thing that restricts me from it is my age, I heard you can fly only from 18? Or is it not? I am soon to be 17 yo.

    in 50 days I have my final exams because I'm finishing high school. During day time I study and work at math and physics and during the night I'm testing anything that you can make money online from, non succes so far. And I sleep around 5h a day...6 when I'm lucky.

    I think it depends on the airline mostly, you should check out a few sites and maybe call them up to see if they would allow you to fly.

    Surprised that you're 16! I'm 17 and still have a long way to go in IM, but seems like you're already well advanced.

    Also I noticed that you mentioned the gym further up in the thread, if you need any help with nutrition/training send me over a PM :D

    I work a 9-5 job managing a creative team and after work I come home, relax for 20-30 minutes and I go back to work on my websites for about 5-6 hours every day. In this pace I really achieved success with one of my website that is making around 700 euros/month. But sometimes..once a week usually, I simply crash..I come from the 9-5 job....and those 20-30 minutes of relaxation turns into a deep sleep until next day.

    Every weekend (Saturdays usually) I go hiking with my girlfriend for at least 5 hours and of course work additionally on the website in the after-noon.

    I think it depends on everyone on the amount of work one can handle without destroying himself/herself.
