    If my channel is earning 30k views a day, would it be advisable to quit my day job and focus more on yt videos production? If not, when should be the right time to do so (quitting day job)?

    When you're making a sustainable amount of money from it?

    Depends, do you earn more then your day job?
    Is it steady and evergreen?

    I'd not quit a steady income position with only one method earning me money and I would not leave a steady income position unless the methods I was using to earn were steady for some time.

    I would always say that you should be making twice of what your monthly expenses happen to be. When you can do that, you should be able to live comfortably with ease.

    Then again, some people have no financial experience whatsoever - not everyone is smart with their money.

    Should I change my underwear if I've been wearing the same pair for a week (they still smell clean)?

    Not reliable enough if you ask me. How much does YouTube make you in comparison to your job?

    You never know what can happen with YouTube. You may think it's unlikely, but a few stupid mistakes and your channel could disappear off the face of the planet. Leaving you without any income whatsoever. This person had over 2 million subscribers and was making $10k+ per month, then YouTube terminated him for overusing metatags in his descriptions https://youtube.com/user/MrTechnicalDifficult

    In short my answer is No.

    Consider working less hours like I did. I went from 40 hours/week to 28

    Go to work, work hard. Then go home and work even harder.

    Why are you asking that? My advice is to stay at your work and to work 1-2 hours after it ti see if your videos will be with stable income. Do both things to be safe and for more money!

    I'd say no since you probably make more at your day job. If 1000 views is $1 then you're only pulling $30 a day. Of course the numbers may be slightly different I just used that as an example not sure what the view rate is now-a-days.

    Agreed on all fronts. It would be particularly unwise to quit one's day job under the circumstances OP represented.

    If you're already making a sustainable income, I'd say quit it and focus all your time in producing even beter videos. Everyone must take a risk when it comes to business. Keep in the back of your mind that if you're following a trend, you might lose that stability, so always have a fallback ready.

    It really depends on how much $$ you're making not the views. I got 1million view a couple of times and there's no way I could pay a significant fraction of just my rent from that

    I think you don't need to do that. Keep your job to remain income

    Get a leave for a month (Reason Medical), make a schedule for 30 days.
    If you see improvement, quit job by saying medical reason.
    If ain't work, job is there :)

    Successful people took risks and no one become successful without facing a failure :)
    You don't need the moment in your life to guilt, WHY I didn't try that out?

    Just calculate how much you earn daily on your job, and daily basics on YT. Then you can decide!
