    So today i told my boss that i quit after 4 years at this job - I'll be working next month out to give them a chance to find someone to replace me with and help him/her get going, it's a small company and i want to leave everthing good between us .

    I know that if I don't get myself a hobby besides IM I'm only gonna be home doing (money) nothing so I also decided that I'm gonna start studying (again) so I get my ass out and meet peaple, it's just 2h a day and it will also give me some extra cash.

    So how's my online earnings going?
    Well, befor all google updates ruined all my white hat only sites it was actuelly going good. I was doing affiliate with lifetime revenue share and i still got a few refered costumers that's still making me money, I would say $100-1500/m.

    It's now time to scale it up and make my living trugh the internet! No more 6 to 5 :D
    Questions?

    congrats man. My only regret about leaving my 9 to 5 job many years ago was that I hadn't had the balls to do it sooner. You will never look back....

    Yes it is, its my monthly earnings from already refered costumers only.
    So at this point it feels like I have a ground and something to build up and make it more stable.
    Often it's betwen 500-1000, but it also have been 100 and the last 3 months have been 1500 :)

    Grats, I think before you quit your job, you must know your IM strategies, plans to not to burn, passive income. Good luck to you ! :)

    Thanks! Indeed, that's kind of a motivation right there, if I dont succed, I'm screwd.. Also, here in sweden we get paid monthly and since im quiting next month I'll get my last payment in July, along with holiday compensation that I'm withrawing and some money back on taxes since i paid a bit to much last year. That IS enough money to get it all rolling :D

    Damn, feel sorry for you bro.. I hate to see these spammy and ugly sites ranking above me..

    Living 6 - 5, as in 6AM - 5PM work days? You'll be working 6AM - 5AM many days.

    Get excited, this is your own operation. It's your own work. You can think of it like a hobby or a craft instead of a tedious job; keep moving onward and keep perfecting. Your life is in your hands now.

    Welcome to the very first day of living a life worth living.

    I wish you failure, hardship, toil, long hours, insomnia, melancholia and poverty. So that you might rise above these things.


    All the best,

    Exact same situation a month ago...

    my suggestion to you...Put together your desired salary! Your salary is always based on your quantity of revenue streams.
    Create a 10 system network (minimum) of revenue streams, sub-categorize them in 5 units (get your spreadsheet).

    If your like me you would create a revenue stream based on every category you see here. If you dont know it get up to date, there's alot of tutorials and guides.

    You should invest 9 hours of you time, similar to a job. [I don't even sleep at night no more. I take a nap at about 10:00am to quarter to 12:00pm].

    The only difference with working online is that you have the ability to make unlimited amount of income, whereas, with a job your simply trading time for money.

    no questions, just suggestions
