So I plan to make money online. I write articles for people, I have several websites up and running myself, and I sell a Clickbank product that I make decent money off of. I am fairly confident that if I work 10-12 hours each day, I can make enough to live off of plus a little more. But I will only make about 30%-40% of my previous job for a while.
So it seemed like a great idea until I told my wife. I had talked to her quite a bit about quitting - probably for the last year or so. So granted, while she knew about my thoughts, the timing completely caught her off guard.
We don't have kids and the only debt we have is a reasonable house payment. My wife has only worked off and on since we have been married because we didn't need the money. She wants to work, but she is not necessarily a go-getter. So she is pretty ticked off right now and is out searching for a job. Thankfully she chose the fight not flight option
So I couldn't sleep last night, and I am pretty scared. Self confidence is a fleeting thing sometimes, especially when your closest friend doesn't like your choices. I could rescind my resignation right now and, other than a little embarrassment, could continue on as normal. Last night I wanted to, this morning I believe I can make it.
If it was just me, I would be OK with this. If it didn't work, I could go down to the local McDonald's a get a job to live off of. With my wife working and my money coming in, we won't go broke. It is just a drastic change in thinking.
Has anyone gone through anything like this? Any advice?
