    So, right now I've been going to school for 3 months and I'm doing good and theyre helping me out (financially). I have a chance to make real good money now that i've sharpened my method to perfection almost but going to school is getting in my way... Yet if I drop out now, it won't look good and it might ruin my chance to get financial help again...

    This is my first year in school, but if i drop it right now I'll be able to focus entirely on cash money.... what do you all think

    I think you should quit everything you start, and never accomplish anything.

    If they're helping you financially with education stick with that.

    If not go for the money to earn for your future.

    Do you think your methods and online ventures will work forever? What will happen when something wrong happens and you can't make money online anymore?

    That's where real job comes in play. It's more secure and available. I wouldn't quit studiyng just so I can sit my ass in front of the computer all day long.

    Go for the $$$$ There isn't much that's learned in school that's going to help you make real money.

    The only information you are going to learn is how someone else is going to control how much you make, when to report to work, tell you what to do.

    It's crazy!

    Capable people don't bitch, they just do stuff. If you think you can succeed, than you should be able to do both things in the same time.
    It also depends upon what you are in school for. If you are studying something on the borderline of useless such as history or social studies, then quit immediately. Everyone can do that, and you will have no use of that knowledge later.
    Study engineering, medicine, science or similar hard subject which will give you the edge and change your perspective on how you look at things.
    Cut on girls (they are waste of time at your age), drugs, booze, computer games and you will do just fine.

    He's right, school is a freaking waste of time if you plan to work for yourself. There's very little school has to offer you past the 5th grade, once you learn some basic math and how to read/write, the rest is garbage. (Like we need to know who crossed the fricking Delaware) I should know, I've been through it all and now I have expensive papers that hang on the wall and don't help me to make money in my own personal ventures. Just waste of my parents money and it isn't worth a damn in internet business. However School is GREAT if you wish to work for someone else. Also like others have said, no 1 method will last forever, therefore, don't do the stupid thing and rely on 1 method, rely on several.....

    Then again there's some guys who made so much money on one method in a short amount of time, that it was equal to lifetime of what they would have made with a college degree job working for someone else :faint:

    go to school to get a job to get money

    you pay to go to school so that you'll hopefully get a job that will make you money.

    If you're method is really good, you don't need to worry because even if it dries up you'll always swing on to something else. It depends on your personality, but if you think you can do it - then why not cut out the middle man.

    Bill Gates dropped out and focused full time on his business and we all know where that turned up.

    So it really depends on how safe you are and how most of all how willing you are to share your method with me :D

    Definitely finish school! But on the flip, no reason you can't mix in a little IM. Cut down on the parties a bit, bring in some outsourcing, etc. Refine your mind at school.. your bank account online... Then down the line, they'll meet.

    It really depends on you. I know a lot of people dropout of school though and 3k a month is enough to support a living

    I'd say continue with school.
    You should easily be able to fit in 4-6 hours, in the evening/night, at least.
    Or more some nights.
    If you ever work on anything that can be automated, then automate it!! And run over night.
    Good luck!

    Go to school and when you finish, then make money, or you can use spare time to make some money.
    School is much more important than some method.

    who the fuck is goin to school to learn when there are more interesting things there like chicks & parties? lol

    so don't fuck your life and go to school, it would be the best part of your life like many others amongst me as well, i finished the uni a few years ago, but i just can't give up these parties and it will never end :)
    if the college helping you out financially and the amount is enough for you, it's fine and maybe you can do your bh work as a part time job, not full intensity but you can make some extra income
    you don't have to hurry anywhere, blackhat methods are always there and always will be there
    and who knows, after you graduate, maybe you don't want to do anymore the bh things and you select another lifestlye...

    Winners never quit! When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Gets Going!

    Time management, prioritize! Outsource what you can't get done. Your method will always evolve and you will have to change and adjust.

    Look at it this way: School will be over before you know it. Wouldn't be wonderful to be done with school and have a ton of $$$$?

    You may not have time for fun, however, in a few years you'll have enough $$$$ to have all the fun you want!!!

    "don't be a foul" ;o) keep studying & make money at the same time.
    Knowledge is power and if you drop the school you're definitely going to regret

    If you really wants to leave the school to make money, keep working in the spare time & WAIT for a good monthly income. If you're still doing less than 2-3k a month, you're not ready yet.

    I'm in a similar case actually. If you have a method that you plan to exploit, don't think about dropping out, as methods don't usually last long. If you have a viable business model which has multiple revenue steams, and utilizes multiple advertising avenues and believe you can get the financial backing you need to go ahead with that business, then drop out :).

    At the OP, how old are you? I would stick with school, you'll never know how the future will be. ;)
