Brewer said he's making spreadsheets. This I can understand because I make spreadsheets, but I guess not nearly as many.
I've looked into being self-employed, and its always the same thing: You'll work around the clock. But doing what? That's the mystery...
You ask what I was doing during those hours, why I was doing physical labor, in other words I was unloading uncrating, installing, cleaning attending deadline meetings etc. etc. etc. It wasn't doing paperwork (usually done on weekends), purchasing, soliciting work and such, it was doing the actual installation of the contract. There was no time wasted on breaks and such, to me time was money, when ever you weren't productive, you stopped making money, when you made mistakes you lost money.
I hope this answered your question
