    One of the reasons most people never make money online is because they never put in the work required for a method to make them money or they give up to early. How many hours do you put into IM each day?

    16 hours a day on average. More if I'm working on a project or there's a problem, less on days when I have WH appointments or have to run errands.

    However, those 16/day aren't work for me. I love what I do so much that I feel like I haven't worked a single day since I started. :D

    Have to agree with that one. But I actually do a lot of IM work in class.. hmm. writing articles, ebooks etc haha

    But I am only able to devote 2 hours a day to IM right now. More in the summer.

    about 4 per day on average :(

    I wish I could put in more, but it's not really possible.

    Way too much. Trying to focus on the 4 hour work week ethic. But yeah, at first, you have to put in the time. Once you figure it out, you have to systemize, automate and take yourself out of the equation.

    Totally agreed. This is the most fun I've ever had doing anything before in my life. So. Freaking. Awesome.

    Same, I used to be sad to say very addicted to wow. IM has killed that addiction so now i'm addicted to IM. I'd say I'm the comp actually working about 12-13 hours a day.

    I can't be on that much, because I have to attend schooling. But I usually spend 4-5 hours a day on IM. As for right now I learned all about auto blogging, dropped it, now learning CPA, and will hopefully be successful.

    Prob 6- 8 hours per day. Sometimes more. Depends on what happens that day and whats released on those days.

    To expand on that, I wonder how many of you out there literally put in "too much" time, feel like you did a lot of work, but when you look at your day gone by...nothing was really accomplished?

    I have been having a few days like that recently.

    I can somewhat relate to this. I have 3 almost finished products, but something always seems to supersede what I was working on. But in this case, I am basically done what superseded my original work, to stuff that I was working on. LOL. Anyways.. priorities. It's all about priorities. Now on to developing blackhat tools that makes some money!!

    I usually average about 12 hours a day but then I support a large family that truly believes in consumerism...I have 3 teens that love to shop til they drop. Then of course I love to spoil the grandkids too.

    That always happens to me. Usually it's just the fact that I'm watching too much porn.

    The problem is when I'm working and something doesn't go write or doesn't make me money, I tell myself that it isn't worth it, and then a shitlaod of time goes by. Then it's 11 at night, and I've barely got anything done. In fact, what I got done working all day (10+ hours) if I think about it, I probably could have got done in a hour or two.

    At least 14 hours a day. and I am loving every minute (sort of) when it works and I make money.
    Honestly, I just can't understand why I havn't found this 10 years ago
