    Would you spend $1k in order to make 100k , but if the success rate would be ~70% ?

    I have a double way how to do that , would take 2months of constant daily work of ~3hours/day ( of course I'm going to be outsourcing the main work what needs to be done so I don't have to work 15hours/day instead of 3 )
    And about $1k total investment.
    I give it 70% chance that it would succeed fully and 100% chance that only partialy.

    If you would be in my place and the investment would be almost as much as I earn in 1 month right now Would you go ahead and do that or not?

    you say success rate is 70% but if you fail you will lose all your money or you do you get only a small profit
    i think i would risk it
    No risk no fun

    Of course. If your percentage of success rate is right then why not? You have a better chance of succeeding than failing, thats a no brainer.

    If worst case scenario is you get your investment back and best case scenario is the potential return you mention, then of course yes, you have to speculate to accumulate as they say and make decisions after you've analyzed your risks and downsides like any investment, online or otherwise.

    in offline business ppl usually invest to get around 20-30% returns over a year or two..your stats r way to high for not considering.100k returns with risk of loosing 1k worth it.i ll say its a profiatble scenario..go ahead

    TrickaC14 is right, your success % is quite high and if that's true, I would spend as much as I can, not just 1k ;)

    Even if the success rate was 10-20% that's a very small amount of money for such a large payoff.

    Of course you need to "risk it"! Do you think great things were accomplished by people that played it safe? ;-P

    Don't even think about it. It's a win-win in my eyes, you'll gain experience and will probably get a big cash injection for your other projects. Go for it :)

    I think it is well worth the risk. You are talking about icreasing your money 1000% in just 60 days. Have not seen a return like that since you could buy any .com stock 10 years ago. And if it works you can afford to hire a staff and do it on 20 sites at a time my math says that is $1M per month! Good Luck.

    Was that a rhetorical question? Am I missing something?
