How long do you work everyday?Today is my first day of having a second work in a day. They said that I'm workaholic but this is really neccesary. I;m not doing this to be rich but to help my sister's needs in order to push through her dreams to fulfill and to successfully go abroad!

Hi Daisy! Aside from my permanent job, I also work online during my free time. I know having this kind of activity everyday is tiring on my part but I have to do it because I want to accomplish something with my life. Have a nice day!

Hi bryanisrael! Well, I have a retirement package awaiting for me. So I don't worry much about that thing. what I want is to achieve the things that I want while I am still working. Have a nice day!

I am not a person who should, or even could work 2 jobs, I never had that much energy. I have also retired, so I'm only working part time now, 6 hours 3 days a week and 5 the other 2 days. I'm supposed to be off on the weekends, but they haven't gotten a weekend person for my client, so I go over those days, but I only stay as long as I need to and do what absolutely needs doing. She's supposed to have someone 2.5 hours both Saturday and Sunday.

wow! you are a very good sister to be helping out like that. in fact you are really putting yourself out there and sacrificing for someone else's dreams. did you take care of her while she was growing up or something?

I work a lot and am usually pushing sixty hours each week or more. I have two jobs so I get a lot of double shifts each week and usually have at least three a week with usually having doubles everyday on the weekend. Most of my shifts range from four to ten or so hours for a single shift. On the days that I have doubles I end up working for eleven to fourteen hours give or take depending on how busy each restaurant is. I do enjoy working but I don't enjoy working as much as I have been because I have barely any free time. I'm also not working so much to be able to have a lot of money but more because I'm trying to save up enough money as possible for transferring to a graduate degree university and to be able to move from northern Michigan to Washington.

How I really wish It is allowed in my place too. But it;s not for reasons I don't really know. Or probably some people are just blessed to have two good paying jobs. As for me I have none. I'm here stuck of being a full time mom which I also choose to do. But the need of money is too strong that I almost give up being a full time mama.

My husband and I each work full time and take care of our child. We don't have daycare or a nanny to watch him, so we work opposite hours of each other. It's a lot of work but it's worth it. Your work ethic and your generosity are commendable!

For me every day is different because some days I might work 12 to 14 hours and other days I might work 2 hours. And then some times I might not work at all for a few days, but that is on rare occasions. So I work however many hours I want. But I will say that work for me is fun so it really doesn't seem like work all that much.

There's nothing wrong with it. I'm a full time mom, my husband is working and do have a really nice pay, but here I am, still working offline. Sometimes, we need to work hard to achieve what we desire, sometimes it's just for self fulfillment and sometimes it's just for fun. You're a really good sister, you'll be blessed.

hello, daisy, I guess this very tiring to have second work. It's almost two months I've been a jobless. I decide to quite from my regular job to take care my baby. she's now five months old already. I miss my old job, but now I have a mini shop that I try to manage, but still not comfort with it. may be because it's not my choice

You're such a great sister. She is lucky to have you As for me I am only having one 8-hours job. I don't think it would be possible for me to take another job as time won't allow me to have another one. Or else my health will suffer.

Hi, I can't take the pressure of double shift duty. It is hard for me to coupe it with my daily schedule. May be you have better adjustment but, it is not ideal for me.

Aww, that is such a noble thing for you to do for your sister. But I would have done the same for my sister and I will do it wholeheartedly. I hope you two become successful in what you strive to achieve. Normally, I work 8-10 hours a day. When the situation really calls to render extra work, I can do 12, but I remember one time when I was working that I have to work for 18 hours. It was the year-end closing of books. And that is for one job only.

When I was in highscool I have a summer job and that was the most stressful job I experienced till now. I have tried working for 3 straight days, no going home and shower and eating and brushing was done in workplace. The owner accepts multiple orders that more than we can commit and the result is too much hardwork and almost not sleeping. Everything I earned from that job I spend it for my school and my parents almost didn't spend for me at the beginning of classes.

Hi Daisy: It depends on the day but I think I work between 9 to 12 hours a day. I am in the office from 8am to 6pm and after arriving home I usually find some extra jobs and tasks to do which also count as my daily activities . ALVARO

Hi, You are so nice!. Your sister is very lucky as she has loving sister like you. It is very nice that you are workaholic. You can do double work. But while working you should take care of your health. I wish for you and your sister happy and prosperous life.

Well your sister is blessed to have you. You are just one in a million who set aside their own preferences, goals, time and health to give way or grant someone's aspiration. May people like you grow in number, and so the earth would be a better place to live again.
