    not to focus everything on IM although I have decent income that is able to sustain for my modest living. I'm a programmer too, who doesn't believe on experience on paper, so I'm going to improve my skills both programming and IM intensively! Tired of fixing small bug in my previous company! #HAPPY!!!

    Make the most of this, create a lifestyle you're proud of. Nothing feels quite like driving by your old company as the owner of a better one.

    Congrats!!

    I personally work 1 day a week at my "9-5", just because I need more interaction with others, i get pootang from my coworkers, and being alone IM'ing is too isolating. You are from Indonesia though, so socially your culture is very different from mine, and I would bet the jobs in your country pay sh*t. Best of luck! The freedom of being on your own is great!

    Congrats, and I'm into more Nick advice, a 9-5 job is great to keep yourself update from social relationship, there are values you don't want to misses working to people, it's way more naturally than 100% online

    Congrats for the brave step. I wish I could make full time income with IM and look after my kids same time too :) A little bit difficult for me but not impossible I guess.

    I did that about 8 weeks ago. I quit.

    Yeah it is a bit hard looking for graphic design freelance gigs but I am happy as can be! Plus, I can hang with you all a bit more.

    Awesome man, that's the first step. Adding a little risk to the IM game (for some people) gives that added motivation to get stuff done.
