    Perhaps you should have included a range of working hours to be more accurate as the <40 hours is too broad a range. Something like this.
    < 20 hours
    20-25 hours
    25-30 hours
    30-35 hours
    35-40 hours
    40-45 hours
    45-50 hours
    50-55 hours
    <55 hours

    BTW I work about 30 hours a week.

    I work for myself.

    98 hours a week and 16 hours a day shooting and Photoshop.

    (I think this will discourage many people wanting to earn a living from photography )

    For me, I try to work between 40-50 hours per week. Don't believe in working our guts out, doing OT everyday. This is just not productive! I find that a lot of local companies like to see their employees to work like an ox, squeeze every drop of sweat and blood from their workers. Not my cup of tea man!

    Luckily, my boss is from Sydney, and she's very understanding in balancing our private and working life. When it's time to work, I make sure I give 110%, and when it's time to rest, she allows me the flexibility of taking time offs and such. Definitely the company/boss I'd like to work for!

    I can totally relate to that. I was eventually so burnt out that I gave up shooting full time. Guess I don't have the stamina...

    Looks like you may need "Lindachew Efficiency Consultancy Service" too.
