    For those who make a full time income online. What's a normal day like for you? What time do you wake up/go to sleep. How many hours do you work? What do you work on? Do you have family? What helps keep you motivated? What are the most important lessons you've learned? Do you think you manage your time efficiently enough? Just some random questions and food for thought..

    I normally wake up at 5AM, drink my coffee, and hit the day like a wild man. Learned long ago to
    write down my goals for the day on a notepad. Check them off as a go. To finish the day I might
    have a beer or 10.

    Motivation? Never rely on an outside factor to motivate you. Either you have it or you don't..

    Hot girls and expensive cars are my motivation. I wake up late. Cant get up without a good coffee. First thing is to check the stats. After that, checking facebook and emails. Then I code, rinse and repeat.

    Then instead of working, I drink even more and pass out.

    What I don't miss about working from home - it's far too easy to eat a lot throughout the day:

    I work from home pretty happily. I'll wake up at about 5 or 6am and immediately sh$t/shower. Then as I drink a pot of coffee and smoke about ten cigarettes, I'll check all accounts and orders for the day. Before any work, my puggle and I walk to the river for a little.. medicinal ritual.. then I come home and complete all orders or lessons. All days are different because of what I do though. Some days end at 2pm and some at 1am. My business is my motivation though. Being my own boss prevents me from breaking another managers finger and losing my girl's health insurance again. Taking orders from a boss that learned his job from a vhs tape is just something of the past.. Long live figuring it the F out for yourself! - Whiskey induced rant, complete.

    Not a full timer or anything, but wake up a couple of hours before class, go to school, come home and check serps,earnings,emails, etc, Do SEO, check stats, read bhw, check stats, write an article or two for new sites, check stats, check bhw, check stats.

    To be honest, I don't have a routine, so each day is different. The only thing that doesn't change is my morning coffee.

    My day consists of learning more SEO; on-page and off-page. Asking questions, posting.

    Mainly learning, since i'm new and am on my first project i'm still attempting to make my first buck! I'm ranked 29th for my keyword in my MNS, i'm hoping to get first page in the next week or two.

    Long story short, I was supposed to register to this one site (Pornhub), but I was so drunk that I forgot to register, ended up masturbating for seven straight hours.

    Don't really know where the username came from though.
