    Well alright I am kind of in between a rock and a hard place with this option in my life... I have been making money on the internet since 16-17 and now I am 19 years old. I sometimes hit it big and make $3,000 in 10 days but that only happens once or so a year besides that at the end of the year I make $10k-15k without much effort.

    Now my option is to leave internet marketing and start working hard and making bank. I can go work installing Dish Network and make about $1,000 a week or more depending on how many jobs I do. I am just not positive what I want to do. I kind of what some money banked for this summer to come out big with a corvette looking nasty. So what would you do if you where in my position?

    Here is kinda what I want to go for in a vette by the way, its only $19,300.

    Sweet vette.

    If I were you, I would pursue the other work while also keeping IM as a side job. Usually by working a regular job, you got other benefits (health, vision, 401k) that you don't immediately get with IM. But IM is great since you can keep most of it as cash and avoid paying big taxes as you would in a regular 9-5.

    19K isn't too low for that model/year.


    To the OP: You could always continue to do IM in your spare time or just take a part time job.

    Well this is a full time job that I am looking at... Reason I am asking is my dad is manager for a region in our state and is about to be a state manager probably. Insurance doesn't come with this job so it is another thing I need to purchase since I haven't had health insurance since Nov. when mine expired. I am looking at if I start within the next month then by summer I can have at least 5-10k saved up to throw at a down payment for this.

    Do what you love! You will make more doing that in the long run. Don't let the immediate satisfaction grab your attention. Sure, making $1000 a week sounds like a lot but its only 48k a year, and than you have taxes, and with the car, gas insurance and the like. As well as speeding tickets. :)

    I would stick with what you love, make that money make money for you, regardless of how you bring it it.

    Stick with IM as a side job. If you eventually find a very profitable niche, then you could do IM full time.

    By the way, whats this corvette model? year?

    I would go with dishnetwork, its just a question of where you can make the most money, keep doing IM on the side and eventually you might hit something big and be able to quit your job.

    Hit me up on AIM and I will set you up as a Dish/DirecTV affiliate

    You will earn $145 each install and all you have to do is sit at home and promote it. My top affiliate does 40 signups a day from his living room



    **You should always plan on working at a job for the benefits - most often a job that involves sitting at a computer in which you may open a new window and work your IM stuff while getting paid by the hour +benefits. You must make at least 100K a year to leave a job**


    pretty nice vette by the way

    Why wouldn't you do both? Working full time means you should have at least 4-6 hours a day more to work on IM, plus time to eat and sleep. I go to school full time, work a part time job, spend a ton of time doing IM, and still have time for fun. Don't be lazy

    I would do the dish deal for a bit and save money and invest big time in seo and established sites. Good luck on your decision.

    Get a Chrysler Crossfire 2006 for about $12,000 instead. V6. Mercedes Benz SLK 350 engine. Leather interior. Smooth drive. Amazing. Much better than that vette. This is a blackhatter's car:

    I would take the job and in my spare time find a more lucrative way to make big money with IM... The logic is if your able to make any money with IM then all you need to do is scale it up to make more! That and find something better lol

    I have a friend that is a Technician up at dish. It's a very good job and in most cases the overtime should be there. You can actually make quite a bit of money moving up the FS ranks which would put you at maybe moderate IM money earning status. In the side if you want to pursue IM, then I would do that. IM isn't for everyone. Don't put off a career to chance things unless you feel confident about where IM will take you.

    When I first started I was juggling IM and a full-time job. My real goal was to work for myself. The limited hours and income helped me put off the stupid shit so I could test methods more loosely and scale if they worked. I am pretty sure their hours/days are stagnant around the US, so you will be working 10h+ 4 days correct?

    You know at the end of the day it's not all about the money. Do what makes you happiest, this is the key to your fortunes.
