    Once I'm up and running, I flat out refuse to do more than a few hours a week, even then, only if I feel like it, which I probably won't. That might sound a lofty aim to some of you but where there's a will there's a way, and that way might involve paying other people to do the donkey work. I didn't quit the rat-race to get bogged down in another one, that's a point many in IM are missing.

    I work when I'm awake and when I'm sleeping I'm still working on it while I dream.

    I wake up around 6-7 AM, if I have no content to write I just go through my daily client prospecting process (whoa, that's a mouthful).

    I could say that I work 7 days out of the week, I'm always doing the same stuff on the weekend as well.

    Money never sleeps, so why should I?

    Used to be about 8 hours per day. Now it's more like 1 hour. 4 Hour Work Week FTW!

    It all depends on which stage you are...if you are at the beginners stage,than you work day and night,you just start out.If you have a method that works on autopilot/semi autopilot than you don't have to work more than few hours a day...but still it is 7 days a week..the internet doesn't sleep.

    I'm in Internet all the time I'm not doing another thing. Somedays I work more than 10 hours and somedays I prefer going to the beach or something like that and the only thing I do is check that earnings are ok.

    I try and write from about 8am - 6pm or so with editing and some social media stuff added into the mix Monday - Friday. So, 50 hours or so during the week, but I try to take off from writing on the weekends and focus on other aspects of business away from clients, such as marketing, setting up tweets for the week and personal branding.
