Now in few words about me not as a professional but rather as a person I can say that whatever I do as a professional for me the most important part of my life is my family. We live in South Africa since 1997. My wife Elizabeth and I are running our Internet business together. Originally we are from Bulgaria. Now, as you know, or if you don't you better learn it now you MUST have a free time for yourself or as a quality family time to "recharge the batteries", in other words, you need time to get away from your every day activities, because this is one of the most powerful things to keep your brain from shutting down and keep you going in a proper direction while running your business.
I love cycling and I try to do it at least 3 times a week with every session being about 40 km. and my wife....coffee, cigarettes, and movies. Yeah, it is not a sport but that is how she relaxes from being all day in front of the computer. As long as you find your own way it's fine. The most important is to break up your activities from time to time with something cool, something you really love to do but different from your business.
