Mark, it's a good idea to outline a process you're going to follow for each new site so you get into a rhythm. You should be following the Affiloblueprint process if you're not, Mark Ling outlined the process he uses with every new site he builds.
A simple process could be:
1. Pick your nich
2. Keyword Research
3. Domain Purchase
4. Wordpress install with plugins
5. Keyword Research
6. Onsite Article writing
7. Posting onsite articles/scheduling
8. Offsite Article writing/Spinning
9. Offsite article posting
10. Backlinking everyday
That's just a simple process I came up with off the top of my head and I'm probably missing some things but you get the idea. Keep in mind each step might just take a few hours or might take a few days. In general you can pretty much have an entire new site up and running in 4 days. With the right process that site will be making sales within 3-4 months.
It's not important to have the "perfect" site your first time. The quicker you can build your first "Affiloblueprint" type site, the quicker you're gonna learn from your mistakes.
Expect to fail and don't worry about doing everything perfect. As you work through your process and the more consistent you get at it, the more you're gonna learn so you avoid the pitfalls the next time around.
But to answer your real question. Once you have your process defined, you're making money, then you will have more free time and it's just a matter of Managing your Freelancers who work YOUR process. Once you get to the point of managing Freelancers you will have a ton of free time.
