The beauty of being self employed is that we have the freedom to chose how we want to spend our time. If anyone of us are lacking in any one area we only have our selves to blame.

It is all about time management.  We all get the same amount of time dished to us in our life.  How we spend it or waste it ... is our choice.  

I'm good with how I spend my time.

I would say most agents want more time with family.  The necessity to work in the evenings and weekends can be hard on family time.  For single agents this may not be such an issue but they still need to make time for themselves so they don't burn out.

I agree with Bob "RealMan" Timm - there are those who run their businesses and those who let their businesses run them.  I let the business run me for a while as a new agent, but eventually I figured it out.

I set my own schedule but I tend to be a bit of a workaholic so if I could set a mandatory-for-me few hours I'd spend it: at the beach, boating, at the gym, at sporting or concert events or out with friends having a few cocktails.
