    Hello guys,

    i have a very serious question for you guys and it?s kind of the million dollars quetion for me .

    How the heck in the world do you (peole who still studying) manage to keep up with all your niche websites blog and list and stuff during the school ??????? i?m in high school and i have a couple of niche sites that i?m pretty serious about getting to the next level and i?m very uncomfortble with the fact that i?ll start school in a few days ?. i even think that i may quite and focuse on my online business but i don?t know i?m pretty confused really . specialy because this is my final year and i have to take care of school more than ever before .

    some times i start thinking about this issue and i say : "Hmmm so what is the purpose of this whole studying thing ? get a job and make money ? so i?m already making money online so why the heck should i study" ? LOL

    now i have one major choice, which is reducing my sleeping period from 7 8 hours to something like 5 hourse in order for me to work on my websites at night but there is lots of efforte envolve in this one, but i don't have a choice . i'm pretty dam serious about making 10k/month by the next summer and i'm not gonna leave my dream no metter whats happen .

    but i?m still really lost at this point . pleas help !!

    i think you should finish school, just in case things turn bad here. and you have to resort to a lower paid job, you can just go to work for whatever you are studying for right

    Well to answer your question simply finish high school then decided whether you need post secondary education. And most people that i know that handle multiple niches, websites etc are out of school and do it full time. Me personally after high school i started a trade as an electrician as i gathered information about them and learned after 5 years i would be making a pretty penny. but then i got out of it and into im full time and i learned i could make what an 5 year apprentice earns in a month in 4-5 days working less :)

    The debate will always rage on either going to school which is important or working full time and i chose full time im.

    I quit high school after my freshman year to pursue my online ventures. Best decision I ever made.

    I dropped out of college to pursue internet marketing. It was not accepted by the people around me, but then again you have to run your own life at some point.

    If you are in the final year, you probably should concentrate on your studies. Internet is not going anywhere within a year.
    Unless you have some method that is making crazy amount of money and you are worried that this method may not work after some time, then you better complete your schooling and come back to IM.
    And you always have weekends to take care of your sites.

    Like whats already been said, finish high school. I can't tell you straight up from experience that whether or not you think you know, there's no telling what life will throw at you. Say you drop out of school, and then next week all this is gone for whatever reason. It'll be rough, just learn how to manage your time wisely.

    Graduate from high school. Whether or not you go to college is up to you. Really concentrate on your spelling, it's horrible. That's not to flame you, but rather help you in your online ventures. If you want people to take you seriously, it's extremely important.

    No need to brag about earnings man, just saying.

    As for the OP, I'm speaking based on experience. When I started to get serious in IM, I was in university studying bachelor degree in law. I couldn't keep up with both. I knew I had to quit one. And this is what i did, I quit university, I threw away 50k's worth of government scholarship, yes it was a scholarship given by my government, and I've moved on. Some times things can be rough, but hey it's life, I've never looked back, I knew it is what I wanted. Well tbh sometimes I do think what da hell was I thinking, but its just that internet is soo big that alot of money can be made for you n me, and probbly the girl im dating at the time (now my fiance), her father is like one of the most successful businessman in the country, owns many successful organizations here n there, n so i thought if ever things turn bad, I'd probbly still get a luxury job (managing director, anyone?) in his company, lol. But hey, up till now I dont think id be needing any. You can make a living out of the internet, but you gotta be extra smart, earning money is easy, but earning a living (consistency) can be hard.

    Just my 2cents.

    ROFL exactly what i was thinking and depending on your father in law as plan b is shitty but what ever gets you by.

    But all in all getting back on point finish high school get your basics in by that all mighty paper that you get after 4-5 years of listening to someone tell you stuff isn't the means to an end. People are brain washed into thinking that and to be honest the world wouldn't run on just smart online entrepreneurs because who the hell would wash my Audi rs4 (getting soon) ;) at the car wash :eek:

    first of all, give high importance to education.

    You've all your life to work on IMing.

    If you miss your age for school, people would laugh at you... you can't go to school when you're 25 !

    gotcha ??? Focus on education :) Work Less / Learn More ! just a temporary motto for the age you're now.

    when you're adult... Work more / Learn More LOL :D

    Don't drop out of high school it will be the biggest mistake of your life not to get an education. With education you can pursue your passions. I know tons of people around me that dropped out since in my county the drop out rate is like 40% and its sad to see 50-60 year old grown men and women working at BK and McDonalds.

    Make that paper! Few know what you know and what you're being paid to learn. Paid by your pimpin Self. :creep: You're five years ahead of your time. School is overated and basically prepares you to OBEY imho. Make paper and go to school on your terms when and if you're ready. Do You. Most millionaires and billionaires are dropouts and this allowed them to think for themselves. Rare! :wizard:

    I'm a full time pre-med student. I look at IM as a hobby, and my education as something I will always have to fall back on. Put school first, then IM imo.
