    Hola BHW,

    Many of you might know me from my previous journey thread which I had to pause because I wasn't able to do it properly working 45 hours a week and also going to the college at the same time. Well, guess what? Yup, I quit that job. I am coming back just after letting my manager know about it. That is it. It was affecting my grades, life, friendship, mind and what not. I am just sick of it. I am going full on Internet Marketing now. Do I have a plan? Yes, but not a definite strategy. Still, I felt like I needed to quit it in order to move forward in life. It was like a wet swamp which provided a base to stand on but was constantly hurting me and never really supported me to move up. I am in no way whining here. Instead, here I will be the voice of those people who are still not sure if they should leave their job and go on full IMing. People, LOOK AT ME! I am gonna prove it.

    Just a note though. Don't dive in with $0 in your bank account. It's gonna be really hard. I have some money saved in my bank and I believe that will be enough for me for 2 months. It is in these two months I need to strive it, give it my all and reap the fruit. If you are wondering, I am not living in a living room now. I got few good roommates and we are living in a basement. I know it is still not a good place to live but it is much better than small freakin' public living room. I think I am doing good and in no way I am looking back.

    Few things I never need to forget. (If you want you can ignore them. They are for my personal note):

    1) You need to show that "Toad" you can do much better without them.
    2) You DO NOT wanna wait tables, give fake smiles and deal with arrogant customers anymore.
    3) You need to still pay your TUITION.
    4) You love your Mom and Dad and Sister.
    5) You want to show that ASSHOLE (The guy with the ego) that you are far better than him.

    Update begins from next post.

    Enough for two months. Savage, that is not long. I once read an article saying that you needed two years minimum. That being said however I really hope you succeed and make tonnes of money.

    Just checked the other Journey thread of yours, looks like you're working with Facebook and CPA. Two months is a good amount of time but make sure you invest every hour into the right direction, the only thing I would suggest right now is read as much as possible and then take action!

    Good luck with your new journey.

    Hey DC. That's great that you're dedicated to standing on a rock alone and that you are fired up with ambition. My story is basically your ending, I never had a job although I am still freaking young, haven't graduated high school yet, and being self-employed is awesome. All I can say is; never get comfortable and keep hustling like you would at your previous job. If not, hustle way more.

    All the best,
    Awavekid

    I wish you the best of luck my friend. It seems that we both are in somewhat of a similar boat.

    Couldn't say that better. I'd recommend not to hold a grudge against anybody. It's like fighting fire with fire. Let all of that negative energy out of your circle and focus on the positive things. Don't waste your time trying to prove yourself and think you're better than anybody else, that's not healthy or positive in any matter. Just do you, go outside and get some fresh air. Focus on accomplishing your goals and staying positive through any circumstance that hiccups your way.

    Just did the same thing a few weeks ago. Definitely don't do something like this without having some money saved up first.

    Good luck.

    I would have keep the job for those two months. Then work every hour you can on this. Then in those two months if you are making half of what you are making with your full time job you may have something. But if not keep the day job.

    But since you already left. You need to do everything you can. Read and learn and do. At this point to fail is not and option.

    You want to show the guy with ego that you're better than him.. but that's a double standard?

    At that point, you've just reached his level - except a bit worse.

    Just work for your own benefit/happiness, as opposed to be working in spite of somebody else.
