how busy are you ?

what percent of the time that you would like to spend on music business )NOT messing around with your own projects) so as to make some money ?

What if "messing around with your own projects" is how you make money?
I don't play out, i'm a songwriter. (mostly)
I do a few other things to supplement my income, but i don't have a typical day job. Writing music is my day job. Of course, working at home can cause it's own distractions... like typing this into some forum...
I try to stay disiplined, as i do like to eat. (which would be a hell of a lot easier if people didn't think stealing from art creators was somehow a given)

Doing my own projects IS how I make my money. (Well, not ALL of it, but the majority and my ultimate goal is to be 100% in-house). Outside jobs now just seem to be a distraction. The good thing about working for yourself is you're ALWAYS busy.

That can be a bad thing as well.....I desperately need a vacation and the best I could do this summer is a day and a half off....

I mainly just mix pre-recorded material for local groups & write music for solo artists (lots of sample based work) and local media. I'm more of a songwriter than an engineer but I love mixing tracks.

I have a friend who owns a nice studio and we spend days in there messing around with different set ups & share knowledge. I like to teach him a thing or two! haha

It's not as busy as I'd like because I'm using a converted room and don't have the luxury of a live room. But i'm in the process of getting a proper studio with a live room. So, fingers crossed business will start booming :o)
