Sleep...what is that?

So as you know by now, I have a full time job. Let's just say I can't throw money at advertising a site if I don't have money in the first place. I think they teach you that in Kindergarten nowadays. Credit cards don't come until 2nd grade though. Anyway, I work from about 8:15am-5:00pm at my day job, come home, spend some time with my wife and the dogs. Maybe take a walk with the dogs. Then I try and get people together to film...yup, everyday. And I'm only about 10% successful. It's hard to motivate people when they get paid with hopes and dreams currently.
So, when I get shot down on filming, I go to work. Whether it be on a website design/re-design, writing emails, writing plans and material for the sites, editing video, etc. This goes on until roughly 1am-2am every night. I have spent a few mornings up until 5am working on things when I usually wake up at 7am...if the dogs let me sleep in that late.
Over time, this gets to be draining and every once in awhile I have to take a break and not work on new projects. But I have to stay motivated. The light is at the end of the tunnel and that light is making this my full time job. I enjoy this. The light may be a month away or 2 years away, I'm not sure yet, but it's there. Until then though, sleep...well...what are weekends for anyway?
