    Hey, I'm bored here and just questioning my own situation and I am realizing I'm going to have to start making some big decisions about where I'm going in life.


    I realize that I spend a lot of time "working" online and am finishing up a biology degree at school, but I don't make enough to fully support myself. I know I have to get a job, but part of me wants to be done with school then kick my online shit into over drive. The other part says I should just take up an entry level marketing and SEO assistant job as I live near Silicon Valley.

    I've began the work of breaking down my entire "business" (all the shit I do) and found that its pretty damn small, and all of it is blackhat.. I want to hire a part-time VA to basically take over my current operations and provide some ongoing consistent work, because I spend way to much time being distracted and losing momentum.

    Anyway, I realized that my shit isn't a business per say, and I'm not sure if I even care. I do want to make a serious business just to be able to show that I can do it, and to have something to present to the people in my life but thats just to show off.

    I'd like to hear YOUR opinion:

    WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE??

    A BIG NETWORK OF SEMI ILLEGAL SITES MAKING YOU SOME GOOD $$ BUT YOU CAN'T EVER TELL PEOPLE WHAT YOU DO

    or

    A REAL BUSINESS THAT IS FULLY LEGIT MAKING YOU GOOD MONEY AND YOU CAN ACTUALLY SHARE WHAT YOU DO OPENLY

    Dude. There is no such thing as semi-illegal. It is either legal or illegal. You need to find out which it is and then decide how to behave from that point on. As far as the VA, if you make enough profit from their work then pay them to do it and get another second revenue stream to compliment it (or "scale it up" - you know, the usual BHW speech). Whatever you do, go all in.

    I'd rather have something legitimate instead of illegal. Illegal shit will get shut down and then what? Then it's back to square one. White hat stuff you can always expand further and further without the fear that more advertising will only get your site in trouble.

    Combine BH with legit business. It's what I do and most successful business owners as long as they have the know how. It's all about finding the balance.
