    If You Don't Make 6 Figures A Year.... Here's How

    I had an idea and wanted to see if it would get any traction here...

    If you are not currently making six figures a year, please tell me what your hour by hour breakdown is per day (what you do), and I will consult it here and tell you what you need to change/what you need to be doing to push over 6 figures a year.

    Go ahead and try me, post your hour by hour breakdown of what you do :-)

    Let's have some fun,
    --

    He didn't mention breathing either, but I think both come naturally to Rudy

    The definition of a day is very vague in my schedule - it's one long day really, but if there's any pattern it is:

    Wake up randomly between 8am-3pm (depends on when I went to sleep)
    8am-6am - Do stuff (which often includes sleep too)
    Go to sleep randomly between 12pm-6am (depends on when I got up)


    P.S. Wish I could get away with 3 hours of sleep like Rudy!

    Yea. We don't have a parking permit to get to the school (effing school admins) so we have to get there before 7 because he won't be out there before 7. School starts at 7:25. I have to be in homeroom by then.

    Same lol...I don't think a fast food restaurant will push me above 6 figures .

    He will probably say something about "win the lottery"

    Don't say that else SitePoint might end up like expert(s-ex)change and end up charging people for questions answered and that would be unethical in my opinion.

    RyanReese, thinking about it, there is actually some potential here. Maybe someone should take the idea to the SitePoint staff to perhaps create a "premium" section to which individuals could get assistance from the regulars here (perhaps with some benefit over standard Q/A). I mean SitePoint would make some money from subscriptions and we would get a cut of the payment
