    To get where they are today? Approximately 25 hours per day, 8 days per week.

    It's actually a widely known fact that early in his career Bill Gates refused to take time off.

    Bill Gates says startup founders should not take weekends or vacations in the early days of building a company

    Warren Buffet spent/spends his freetime reading about companies in order to make better investing decisions. You may start rich, but you don't get richer being lazy. You may start poor, but you only stay there by choice.

    must be hard for some people living in thier parents basement, to actually go and work, rather than to live off them.

    i only started working at 14 years of age. can't say i ever stopped for much, 5 days, 6 days, even 8 days a week.

    some of us were raised not to be lazy, and earn a good work ethic, while others live off of others.

    if any of my 5 kids were ever to have been like that?

    they'd have been cut out of my Will. why give them sumthing for nuffin..?????

    I never said the idea was to not work.
    Or to wake up everyday and choose to play video games for 8 hours a day or whatever else.
    I just said I don’t envy those who “work hard” I look up to those that work smart.
    fighting tooth and nail to just get by isn’t what I want to do.

    I’ve worked harder jobs then most since I was 17 never had help from anyone.
    I don’t want people to have to do that, if I can help someone get ahead I will.
    Life shouldn’t be a competition it should be everyone moving forward as a whole.
    “When you get where you’re going, don’t forget to turn around and help the next one in line” or some such
