When you’re not at work, what do you do for fun?

Watch movies or play board games and video games with my wife, sell products to people online or offline, build affiliate websites, create courses online to teach people marketing, etc.

OK, pretend you have the day off. What would we find you doing?

If my wife is working then I’ll be on my desk treadmill building a website, learning coding, or selling tactical gear to someone. If my wife has the day off, I’ll probably be spending time with her watching a movie or going out to eat somewhere.
