    ---- THREAD CLOSED 05/02/2014 ----
    Okay so I have resigned from my day job today. I was holding the third position in my company and my bosses are astonished by my decision, but then, who wants to work for someone else :p

    So I am with you guys now. I will work my ass out to become a full time IM / full time freelance Web dev.

    Please wish me luck. I guess I will pretty much need it during the upcoming days. Let's hope I can make this happen :S

    I 'AM' working in a small web development farm located in Kolkata, India. I said 'AM', because I have given them a notice period of 1 month so that they could search for someone else. :)


    So I have two months of salary in hand ( ~$1100) to start something. Not sure what to do next :p

    Nice one mate!

    I bet you felt a whole lot different walking out of that meeting than you did walking into it.

    Good luck.

    As someone who has made the step into being self employed I can tell you it is tough, yet rewarding.

    You'll have some ups and downs along the way I'm sure!!

    I saw you're good at programming and web development, so I'm sure you will succeed. Fact is you can't do both day job and IM. Good luck.
