How many hours do you actually work a week? Then what's your salary? Seems the more money you make, the less you actually work.

Early years overworked and underpaid. First 7-8 years in the business. I worked 12 hour days and a few Saturdays a month. Today home each day by 430 and 1 on Fridays. Hang in there and put your time in, it will be worth it.

So true! I wish I worked since of these people's hours. I'm fairly new and have had the same observation!

In this business , you severely underpaid the first 5 years. After 5 years you can be very overpaid for the time you put in.
