    I will not talk about how much money I earn on internet and how much money I make on my regular job. I just want to ask should I quit my job if I earn on adsense for 1 month like on my regular job for 1 year?

    Yes, that is right. In one month with adsense I earn 12 salaries from my regular job?

    I asked my family and my friends and they told me "Don't do that. That job is safe. You can work on that job to the rest of your life. That internet money is not safe. What if adsense banns you."

    I have friend who makes money on adsense for 8 years. He never worked in any company - never get 9-5 job. Making about 30 salaries of my regular job in one month.

    Am I crazy?

    I am working with adsense on my 7 websites for 2 years (I opened account in 2008). My traffic is pure WhiteHat SEO google organic traffic. Very low percent of Invalid activity <1%. I have revenue increment rate about 10-20% every month.

    Well, It seems like you have an exactly same situation as me.
    I have already left my job yesterday.
    Internet job is risky but definitely, you will find a way to find some new way to earn from it each and every day.

    They won't understand the power if the internet and how much money we can earn from it. Probably the internet is facebook, whatsapp , and youtube for them.

    I guess leaving the job will be right as you already have good money source as of now and savings too which you can invest in many projects and scale up later. If you stay with job, it will eat your IM time and work.

    Don't leave your job until you are earning from more than 2 sources on internet.

    I don't know how much you have saved but I would feel confortable quiting my job if I had enough for the next 2 years.

    Have at least 2-3 sources of income. Millionaires usually have 5-6 sources of income and do not rely on a single source.
    In addition, those who risk will be rewarded.

    I saved about 90% of all Internet Income. I live and pay my bills wth that 1 salary I get from my regular job. ATM my expenses are not big. I live with my wife in our house and we don't have childrens.

    I think I should promote some CPA offers or something. Just to make 1 salary per month.

    Yes, you should quit the day job.

    Simple. Keep the day job for another 5 months. Then you have a buffer of 5 years in the bank even if Adsense dries up the same day you quit. If your people aren't comfortable with you being able to find a job within 5 years, money isn't the problem you have in your relationship with them.

    No, your friends are. Get new friends that will push you up instead of down.

    +1, This always was my motivation. If you can quit your job, it means something else is running good, or you are stupid. in this case something else is running good. So i would quit that job. lol

    I Would quit and invest some of the money in more websites so you get more income streams. If one dries out you can still make a living. I hope this helped :)

    I would quit and invest in new ventures, maybe CPA, Amazon Affiliate or something.

    The moment you have the thought to quit this job, you have lost passion in this job.
    Just. Quit.
    Dare to step up and Live your dream.
