I have been a member of this forum since 2007 and have been fascinated by IM. My ultimate goal was to make a consistent full-time income in IM working from home. I left a high-paying corporate job in 2010 to pursue this goal.
Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. I did have periods where I was making good money but it was not consistent enough.
I am in a position now where I have enough funds to last me six months if I do not work. I am wondering if it would be wiser and better to get a corporate job so I have a monthly salary coming in and do IM part-time until I grow I solid IM business or am I better off pursuing it full-time for as long as I can afford so I can achieve my goal of building a solid IM business?
If I go back to the corporate world I will probably be working 50 hours a week and be able to put in 1-2 hours during the week and a lot more during weekends.
But if I pursue it full-time for the next few months I can put in 50 hours plus a week to IM (trying to build a business which supports me financially).
Does that mean my IM income can grow much faster to the point I would not have to go back to a corporate job?
I am wondering what some of your experiences have been in this regard.
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
