    Hey guys so I was wondering how many of you guys have kids.

    You know I was thinking the other day about life, and life is all about perspective I guess.

    My situation is that I have a new born kid, living in a weird strange country with a new language to learn, and on top of that living with the gf parents with no job just online money.

    On top of that, one of my good friends from high school that I have known for 10 years just over dosed last week on a cocktail of drugs with heroin laced fentanyl.

    Even though, I have been unemployed and living with the in-laws and a new-born that doesn't let me sleep at night where I'm basically suffering from insomnia, life isn't that bad.

    I tend to be a pretty optimistic person , sometimes too optimistic. I guess I see myself as someone that will reach the summit later on. In the past, I used to work corporate and was earning around 80k a year, pretty much 6 days a week shifts living in Rockville, Maryland.

    Now, I'm back to around 10-30k a year, but with pretty much really low expenses and too much time on my hands.
    I've worked as a Community Manager and a IT help desk, and lately been trying a good run as a PHP developer , with Python.

    I feel like my next project is going to be about building a community, perhaps in the tech scene. Not sure, I'm in a point of life where I'm trying to choose a project to focus on and leave everything else behind and just concentrate on this one thing. However, enjoying my new born is also a really great pleasant experience that I think you only live once.

    How is your life situation?

    What happened to your bad ass traffic, with no need to rank websites with that SEO bullshit? Or did you just read about that traffic on some guru blog?

    I think you misread the title @mickyfu. This thread is ON THE LOUNGE and it kindly asks in a friendly and openly manner if any of you guys have kids. No SEO talk or traffic talk. I gotta turn my business brain off, and you know just chill with the community.

    I was wondering how other bhw members split their time between their kids and their online businesses. I'm a brand new father, so this is a new experience for me. Excited nevertheless , but quite challenging, something that I wasn't really prepared to how difficult and time consuming a new born is.

    Oh so in all the other threads you have knocked people, you weren't really talking from experience. That is fine.

    to answer OP, I dont have kids but I do live at home in a full house and my sis has a kid, kids are tiring and I won't consider having them before my 35th birthday (its going to be a few years still)

    @mickyfu I was always talking from my anecdotal evidence, but please that is besides the point. Let's talk about family now, this is the lounge, and I want to talk about family to build up some personal raptor with the community.

    We can talk business , and traffic generation tactics later on, I'm sure you want to pick up my brains later on and learn a thing or two about how to generate traffic without PBNs.

    No, Like I meant a real kid one that cries and eats all the time. New born babies are hard, really hard, I wonder how people do it with new born twins.

    No offense, but if you are making 10 - 30k a year, I doubt there is much you can teach me. But never say never.

    *Cringe*

    I never understood why, when I was younger as hard as i could try some people just disliked me.

    Now I know the feeling, I dont know why, and if its possible without any offense, maybe the way you write or your other posts tones, I just seriously and completely dislike you. Like I want to lock you in a basement and not feed you for a week. I want to tie you up and throw you in a pit of starving snapping turtles. I want to tie a steak around your neck and make you run through a discovery channel lion special. I want to put you in a shark tank scuba cage and forget to lock the cage.

    Sorry no offense, wish you best of luck just needed to get that off my chest

    How about answering Micky's question?

    Surely with a moniker like the one you are wearing and the claims you made you can answer that, right?

    This thread is more intense than the title implies :D

    To answer the original question yes, I have a beautiful girl that is about to turn 3.
    She is the best thing in my world, never fails to put a smile on my face.

    Although she is completely insane and attempts to dive on my laptop every day I use it... That being said I recommend a desktop.

    As far as difficulty, I have another on the way so I must have some confidence. IMO this field offers great opportunities to make your own schedule which is great for a family.

    Hey There,

    Figure I'll answer the question. I've got 3 kids right now, 1 is a newborn. I used to care about material things, but now I just care about providing for my family. Balancing online work with kids is tough. I want to be there to mentor my kids, but I also devote a lot of time to growing the business so I can provide for them properly. I tend to work throughout the day, and anytime they demand my attention, I try to put the computer down and play with them until they are distracted by something else, then I get back to work. I usually also set the computer down for at least an hour a day to take them outside to play. Then, when everyone goes to bed, I usually work until about 1 or 2 am, then the kids have me back up at about 7 am.
