    Need advice,

    If you are making around $7-$9k / month on your IM ventures and you've got an opportunity to take a 9-5 job with $20k-$30k / month job ABROAD with 2 year contract would you take the job? 7k is not really bad amount on my country that's pretty huge compare to jobs here, but a 30k is damn super good.

    of course you would be away from your family for awhile and you have to complete a 9-5 hours of working.

    thanks

    If you are currently making over $100K why would $20-30K even interest you?

    I'll do both as I'll be having 16 more hrs per day and if I spent 5-6 hrs to sleep and another 2 hr for taking shower, travelling, etc.., I'll still have solid 8 hrs left to spend on IM.

    Doing both would be the best solution. If you end up choosing the 9-5 job, I'll be more than glad to take up your IM ventures. ;)

    where did you get 100k? why would i even make this thread if i am making 100k?



    that's damn tiring bro... I won't bother IM anymore if I am making this much per month... But the thing is i'm away from my family. plus working full 8 hours! on IM i choose how many hours i work, i wake up any time of the day, i have control of my life.

    LOLz..

    I missed that bit.

    @OP - did you mean you are currently earning $9K per year and the job offer is $30K per year?

    In that case, take the job man!

    That's just you mate, That's just you.

    What you're aiming for in both IM and daily job is Money and it's limited to just $720k in 24 months on your daily job but in IM, you can scale it up to whatever heights you want. If you're smart, you can achieve the $1M mark within a year. Personally, I've seen several 9-5ers quit their job to increase the profit on their side business which is generating way more money in a single week than their monthly paycheck.

    Do both, the one that pays more and is abroad will allow you to experience something new in your life. Keep your IM business up and running on the side as a "fall back" plan and live your life to the fullest.

    In the OP he said:
    IM = $7-9k/month.
    9-5 = $20-30k/month.

    Sure it's better paid, but I'm not sure I would leave IM as it's so flexable. What kind of work is it you're talking about?

    While that's one hell of a salary, I wouldn't take it.

    You can ramp up IM ventures to 50-100k/mo. in that time frame if you scale what you are doing or think bigger.

    I would stay with IM too. Here' the thing... if you can make 7-9k/month with IM, then you should be able to make much more than 20k-30k/month. You are already doing something that works -- now you just need to figure out how to scale it to whatever amount you desire.

    Yeah this is said with wisdom, a lot of people that are new to internet marketing fall under the trap of thinking they can make unrealistic figures. Keep the day job, until your profits come through diverse channels (SEO, PPV, YT, etc). Don't just go ham and rely on one income stream, incase it get's socked. My buddy's friend once did seo making 100k a month marketing live xxx stuff, one day he woke up, checked his phone, zero profits.
