    I've recently been working sundays for the past 3 months and i'm slowly trying not to 'work' during this time. As some of my buddies know here in bhw I do a fair bit of traveling so I always try to work my ass off to pay for the time away.

    However, I think I should slow down and I am now declaring sunday as my jv/inquiring day. No actual work involved. Probably posting here in bhw helping people or just chatting with a few partners if I am in the PC and of course going out and spending time with family.

    So... do you guys work sundays? You think it's good or bad?

    I admit I work weekends... I will work Saturdays and Sundays sometimes, but then I pull a Wednesday and Thursday Off or something else (like a week off to a Nascar race).

    I get my non-computer time (we have to), and because it is such a portable business, I work almost anytime, and I also take Off almost anytime.

    Balance is good,

    Yes i only work sundays during the winter. During the summer i am camping almost every weekend. During the winter its 7 days a week for me.. Until the snow stops. :)

    I like working a lot during the winter. It usually means i have to do less work during the summer.

    At present I'm still doing a full time "normal" job so am having to develop IM stuff on evenings and all weekend.
    Currently doing about 100 hours a week all in but my goal is to give up the day job around easter time.

    I have kinda been doing stuff everyday and getting up at 12 and then going to bed at 3am or even 6am sometimes... but now im bored of it....

    I lack motivation sometimes and just do other stuff thinking i can do it later on or the next day and never get it done....

    sooo.... now im only going to do IM between 9am and 5pm and only monday to saturday (but try and have most saturdays off)....

    hopefully it will work out okay :) and hopefully i will get more done too and of course get my ass out of bed earlier too LOL

    Yeah I have got into the 7 day work thing which is productive at first but after a while i find I spend more time procrastinating, once my current project is finished I am making a rule that Sunday evenings are for gogo bars!!

    I really enjoy IM so I don't consider it work. I do have nights or certain days that I turn the computer off though. I think you have to. When I need a break I just take it. No set day/time.

    Due to the nature of my job (I'm a Systems Engineer) there are times when I need to work the weekends when I'm on call. Plus I do Internet Marketing everyday

    I work every day of the week, including Sundays. But usually around 6 or so on Sundays I call it quits for the evening and head over to the girlfriends parents house for dinner and a movie.

    It's hard not to work everyday when you see money coming in like clockwork...

    If you count the 2 hours before 12 on sunday nights, yeah. but like adultplayground, I'm doing this internet marketing thing every day. It's... addictive....

    7 days a week for me but I would be down to work 1 day a week if I was happy with the money I was making

    Be careful with quitting your job to soon. Make sure you have some money saved and are earning at least 1.5 - 2 times your current salary. I am not trying to discourage you in any way, but it would suck to quit your day job and have to go back later because the money is not as steady as you thought it was.

    Weekends are definitely more relaxed work for me. Yesterday I didn't do much work mostly just posted on BHW all day haha.
