...... think I should make of the net yearly so I can quit my real job?
I just turned 33, I have been working at the same job since I was 16. I make pretty good I guess, nothing spectacular, about 56k CA. its a solid job. this year i will make over 40k US off the net. It has only been like a hobby kinda thing for me. I am thinking what would happen if I did it as my "job" hopefully next year it will be 80k US and so on. whats a comfortable number to throw away all my time invested in my real job? thing that scares me is there going to be sales 15 years from now? or should a make as much as i can and nest it. i don't think i have unleashed my full capabilities. i made about 6k last year LOL, but over 40k this year is looking up. maybe i can double that next year? man o man. i think if i made 120k i would quit. im just a free site and tgper kinda of fellow, but i want to start a paysite too shortly. cover all bases.
hmmmm. so this is not a question for the big money guys here, but to the average joe like me, how much would it take for you to quit your real job, if any?

I took the plung as soon as I had enough to cover the bills but to be fair I did that when I was still fairly low on the pay structure so it wasn't as much of a risk. However, it was one of the best things I have done. I am not a commuter.

Why not keep doing both if you can handle it?

The first rule of FightClub is never talk about FightClub

With all the billing crap going on I would stay 9-5 longer, build up a good reserve, then if you are still doing good, make the switch :)

I'd ditch the paysite idea. They're a headache, unless you want to be driving a porche and owning a yaught, who needs the hassle. I just made one of my paysites an AVS site lastnight in fact, cause it's too much BS with billing and chargebacks and crap

well if you can make what you make in porn now and your happy with it.. then why not?

a lot of it comes down to will you be happy making what you make?

some people need to make a million dollars a month others are happy with a few K.

so if your happy with the 3-4K you make now then go for it.. and being you have more time you can turn it into more $$ :)
