How many hours do you put into your business?

Recommended Posts

I just started using the forum again, coming in to a period i can take an hour off my day.

I have seen posts asking the very same questions i had myself when i started out on my own.

Pricing and how to grow the business, how to get work ?   How to get that money coming in to pay

your bills each month.   When i started my Stump Grinding business i didn't have any contracts, no clients

nothing, i didn't even have the money to buy the machine,  i went to many banks to get the money needed

for the machine.   I applied to two loans at the same time,  i borrowed 30 k.

This is how it's done.   If you believe more in sleep then grinding, you will be a consumer not a producer, Get over your fears, refuse being a average, stop wasting valuable time,  what ever it is, keep going forward, and get it done, no matter whats in your way.   It's no over till you say YOU WON !,   JUST DO IT...   The day got 24 hours, sleep for 6 and work the rest of that time.  And remember if you are a average, you will attract average,  You put in 40 hours a week and you think you are great ? ??  The output have to be outstanding to become great.  The great puts in 126 hours each week.  If you wan't to be great change your input.  Don't ever be afraid to fail, if you fail you stand the fuck back up again, and again and again.  Never give up, feel no fear you hold the power..

 

It's your Choice

Don't wanna be a dick or anything but if I had a remote operated stump grinder I'd have an easier time working 18 hours a day than I currently do working 12 hours a day. More power to you but I don't consider that work even.

..... And then one day you collapse at work and the next thing you know is you come round with a team, and I mean team of paramedics around you, next they are racing you on blues and twos into London because they can't work out what's going on at your local hospital, then after 12 months of not being able to drive on medical grounds you realise that working and money isn't the be all and end all. Each to their own.

Working that hard is ok when you are young without others to take care of.
Get into your 30s you really should be thinking about slowing down a bit then in your 40s you should be making enough to slow down if you didn’t in your 30s
