I know some young, energetic and enthusiastic freelancers who work predominantly from outside the home. They look like they are leading a nomad life but, actually, they are adventurous.

About 50 percent of all U.S. business owners work more than 50 hours per week and 20 percent of them work more than 60 hours.

I think in these days, the scope of a huge internet start-up is very narrow. So, we should keep a few things in mind before creating a website: make sure there is a market of your site, try to create values, and selecting the right niche etc.

Then you should develop your monetization plan. There are number of ways you can earn from a good site. Check this article which covers 10 important ways of earning from your site.
