    I do SEO for a year now and I learned a few things and now I live off it. It's awesome and I love it. But, as we all know, we should spread our income to more sources so I wanna ask you:

    A - should I just do what I know best, do SEO and build as much websites as I can and rank as much as I can

    B - build 1-2 sites a month and focus on those and try some other things (FB ads are really interesting for me) to get more income sources

    What do you guys think? I have money to invest, I do 50% of my SEO work with automation just don't know should I go full on SEO mode or venture to something else and try it.

    I guess if you have something that's working for you then you should invest 70% of your time in that because it's generating income. Then spend 30% of time on new stuff - and really your goal needs to be generating 20% more with the new stuff that you generate with that time/money/resources doing what you currently do.

    Nah.

    Hmm, yeah. I guess you're right. I could do something else for an hour or two a day and see where it goes from there.
