How do you manage your family and your popular products? How may hours do you work a day? What lifecycle/software tools do you follow on your products?

During weekdays, I almost never work past 5pm, and I only get back on my laptop to answer support requests at about 9:30pm once the kids are in bed and typically clearing out the support requests that have come in between 5pm - 9:30pm only takes about 10 minutes.

On weekends, I still spend about 30 minutes in the mornings clearing out support requests for Forge and Envoyer. I can sometimes sneak in extra time on the weekends if the kids are napping or we have some downtime.

I work 8am - 5pm so just a typical 8 hour work day.
