Why I work 7 days a week as a Startup Founder
And Why I’ve Been Called “Crazy”
My friends say I’m crazy. They may be right.
Here’s why I work 7 days a week as a startup founder.
I work 7 days a week because it’s the only way I can balance everything I need to do for my startups.
I used to think that working 7 days a week was crazy. After all, how could I possibly be productive when I’m working every day of the week?
Then I founded and started my first company, Cudy Technologies, and it changed everything for me.
I had to learn quickly how to balance building a startup and keeping a balanced life. It’s not easy, but it can be done, if you’re willing to make sacrifices in your personal life and work hard at it.
Working every day on your startup is necessary to make it big.
I’m not saying that you need to work 7 days a week to be successful, but if you are serious about building the next great Silicon Valley startup company, I would recommend that you do.
Life is all about balance, and balance is the key to success. In order to build a successful startup, you need to find your own balance between work and your personal life.
I find that the only way I can do this is by working 7 days a week and not getting distracted with other things in my life.
Many people will tell you that this type of schedule isn’t healthy.
However, it’s up to you how much time you spend on your startup. The more time I spend on my startups, the more successful they become. This works for me, but it might not work for everyone else.
The key is finding out what works for you and sticking with it until your company takes off.
It takes time and hard work to get there though!
How to find balance with 7 day work weeks
I work 7 days a week because I enjoy it. I love what I do and I love getting up in the morning and working on my company. It’s not always easy, but it’s also not that hard when you have a great product that people want to use.
I know that my startups are going to make me successful, so I don’t worry about the hours that go into my business or how much time is spent on certain aspects of my startup.
When you’re working on your startup, it’s important that you not get distracted by other things in your life.
This is why I work 7 days a week as well as block out all of my weekends for myself and my family so that I can spend time with them without worrying about anything else.
That’s what balance looks like for me, at least right now. In the future, who knows if this will change? You never know how your life will unfold!
If you want to be successful, you need to spend as much time building your startup as you possibly can. For me, this is 7 days a week!
