    Did anyone here end up starting their own part time or full time earning website WHILE doing a 9-5 job?

    I just want to know how you balanced things out.

    Were these the only two things you would work on in a day?

    Like 9-5 in the morning and then just focus on your one single project later?

    Thanks!

    Just trying to get organized here. Thx!

    You can definitely do 9-5 job and part time IM unless you have three kids and a nagging wife/husband.

    It was like:

    2000-2002: Making my a level here, part time building websites in HTML
    3 years trainee as system administrator, working in this shitjob for 5 fkng years.
    2008: started 2 blogs
    2011: monetizsed the shit out ouf them. created a dozen more ;). working 60 hours/week (40 in office, 20 for me)
    2012: left job.
    2015-2016 had work parttime cause I negleted my sites.
    2017: back full time self employed again.

    topic:
    I was lucky, for 2 years working as a office drone, I had no supervision. so I created most of the blogs during the "official work time".

    it can be done, i started part time. I had emails etc sent to my phone, then would sneek out and answer questions. 9 to 5 job, oh those were the days. 17 business years later and 9 to 5 is a distant memory, now it's long hours, hassle and stress and that's before 9 am. :)

    Thanks for the info guys. Yeah I'm currently doing a 9-5 thing. Started working a site on the side (Just finalizing the keyword research phase). I hope I can stick it out just long enough so that my site takes off. Or at least become a good source of income that could help out when times get tough. Thx a lot!
