Hi, I'm currently deepening my seo skills
I don't work more than 8 hours a day on it because I want to avoid burnout...
So I still have a few more hours where I can work and I am interested in Instagram + CPA
Is it a smart choice to start another business model (I mean in addition with seo) ?
I'm waiting for your opinions ;)

"I don't work more than 8 hours a day on it because I want to avoid burnout..." 8 or 18 ?

But seriously people learn at different paces, so do what's best for you. If you're learning quickly, then you'll be fine. Dedicate a fixed amount of time and stick to that. Try the good old Pomodoro Technique

Is "burnout" an excuse to not work at your full potential?
If you are doing something you enjoy then not sure how much of a problem "burnout" will become.
Anyway, yes, if you have time to spare then working on another method can be worthwhile but it depends if you are giving it your all in your main method.

Try to search for IG success stories/journeys here. It can motivate and show the right direction I think.

8 hours every day because I play on the long term. I think that for new knowledge and in order to really be able to integrate all the principles it's a good time.

Thanks, I didn't know the name of the method. I already apply it and it's really effective !

I really don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong...
Even if it's something I like, don't you think that after 1 year working like that, I can get tired of it ? Just by having worked more than I should have? Even if I don't know how long "more than I should have" is. I'm waiting for your thoughts on this. Thanks for the answer

That's exactly what makes me want to do it, but what keeps me from doing it is just knowing if it could be bad for my other business.

For moderators: Sorry I should have used multi-quotes

As @MisterF stated, work for as long or as little as you feel comfortable with.
Personally I have found that working for myself, I am happier and have more energy than being an Employee.
I have always found that things like "burnout" and stress are brought about by external factors that you have little control over.

If you already have that mentality why even start in the first place? You need to be motivated to make as much money as you can and yes you can get bored of what you're doing but no one ever said it was going to be fun or easy.

What mentality? I'm really motivated and I like what I do. More than ever, I know what I do and why I do it. What I said earlier is just that I don't want to get tired of it, and I want it to be long term. I don't expect it to be easy, nor fast, it took me a hell of a time and perseverance before I made my first "passive" euro on the internet, just like everyone else. I understand why you might have misunderstood what I said, I wasn't clear. Thanks for the answer
