Working 7 days

Who works Monday-Sunday (mowing & maint)?
My bro does that and I think he's a bit crazy. I'll do that a few times a year when we're swamped with side jobs and such.

I don't mow seven days a week, but between my full-time job and my part-time mowing I work seven days.

Six days a week for me. Nearly all of my customers know and understand that. Anyone else can and will wait until Monday.

Six days a week scheduled, looking at the radar this morning might be seven this week.

We got to remember life is not all about work. Get your bills paid so u can feel good about turning down work. I work six days now but next year I want to down size to working four days. I enjoyed it more when working 4-5 days. Working six days never give you much rest and it's can be too much at times. Let's live to work and not work to live. Enjoy your time with friends, family and pets. They miss you when you work to much.

Monday - Saturday for me. Will work on Sunday if rain earlier in the week was enough to cause significant delay.

Could not agree more. Isn't one of the major benefits of running your own show ...being in control of your own working hours and schedule.

I can see working extra days short term but as a regular perpetual habit...? Your merely living to work.

I sure as heck don't schedule it, but I find myself working at least part of the day on Sundays more than I'd like to.
