    TOTAL 60 Hours ( Bernie, Grafxsigns)
  • Too many !! Used to be regularly over 70 but now down to 40 - 50. The real answer is as many hours as is needed to succeed.
  • 50-70 hours
  • Generally, 55-60 hours per week, higher when tight deadlines for a good customer, often weekend work catching up on paperwork on top.
  • Depends what time of year, quiet times I try and get away with a 9-10 hour day, when we're busy it varies between 10-15 hour days.
  • Minimum of 50 hours, but I avoid weekends at all cost, but the business is always on my mind; thinking about how to improve the business or dealing with the day to day issues.
  • To many!
  • Used to be about 60 now only about 50 - it's all about delegating!

Facebook 4 Seniors
 
For those of my generation who simply do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists -
I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.
Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passersby what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I'm doing now, what I will be doing later and with whom, and where I'm going next, and ask them to follow me along and watch me be important.
 
Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, washing the car, driving around town, eating lunch, getting a haircut, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I like them and will be friends with them.  It all works just like Facebook.  Only I do it face to face, not on a little glass screen.
I already have four people following me - two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.
