So I got a 9-5 job but I am committed to working on my business until 2 am everyday after I’m back from work. Part of me wants to just focus 100% on the business but this is also a very good job and I need the money now. I’m going to give this crazy lifestyle a big shot for a year until I make at least 1700 a month which is enough for me to live a very comfortable and happy lifestyle. I’ll keep you guys updated.

If you have the opportunity to do so, take a break during your job and take 5 minutes to plan what you will do that night. Try to work on becoming more efficient for that night shift. Also, try not to waste your brain resources too much during the day.

If you feel exhausted after a little while because of that lifestyle, start drinking more water all day long. It won't help fatigue, but your mind should stay a relatively fresh for longer.

Depending on your job (and your, uh, ethical "flexibility"), you might be able to siphon some of your time from your day job to work on your side hustle/business--unless you're like an air traffic controller, surgeon, etc. J.K. Rowling wrote during her teaching job, and other business owners (yeah, we're typically bad employees...) have done similar things.
