“I'm a part-time, self-employed consultant. Even working far less than 35 hours per week (actually, my norm is about 25 hrs per week), I earn a very comfortable six-figure income. Once I decided to retire from the full-time corporate world, my life has been more enjoyable, far less stressful and just as financially rewarding (if not more so).”


“45 hours per week...not bad for 38 hour week...yet we are expected to work the extra hours with the extra pay :(“
