    Well I turned 14 a month back, I have been online since a few years, I made a few K$ by a lot of hard work. Now I think I am enough to start BH internet marketing. Should I go ahead? I just fear because I can just spare 2 hours a day but I belief I have a creative mind. So am caught up in the midst - Should I study till 25 and than get a 9-5 job making me 1-3K$ a month or study besides BH marketing and bank? :)

    IMHO emperorniks, if I had my time all over again, I would definitely study AND do BH combined.

    You're in a very fortunate situation you see; you not only know what you're good at and what you like doing, but you also know how you don't want to end-up. Many people don't understand what you already know until it's much too late!

    Armed with this information I personally would be looking toward colleges that specialize in Internet Marketing and with my remaining time in school - I would seek-out the advice of the most tech savvy and business savvy teachers you have around you and ask them where they think the best place, to further your education should be.

    Pretty impressive situation you are in.
    Keep studying and do a college degree in something NOT related to IM. In the meantime use as much time as you can on your IM whether it be using blackhat or whitehat methods. This will ensure you always have the fallback option of a $1 to $3k salary should you hit a rough patch in IM later on in your life.

    I've been in a similar situation like you. At 15 I was making 2K+ a month with whitehat ringtone sites (they were mono-tone back then) so my motivation for school dropped as I felt I was completely wasting my time there. Later on in college that really improved as I could choose to not go to classes and do everything in my own tempo. I still suffered from a lack of motivation but eventually made my college degree about 1,5 years after I should've normally graduates. But that gave me the time to enjoy my college life without being constantly broke and without the pressure of having to succeed in every class.

    Continue to make money but do it on the side. Or do it 50/50 in college later. You'll love it.
