A few years ago, I was heavily involved in the online poker world. I produced and hosted a TV show about the subject, had lots of ad deals, and had a stake in some rev shares. I was living in Vegas with the fam and then blam. They snuck the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act into the The Safe Port Act fifteen minutes before voting.
I was done. All of my revenue went down the drain. Fortunately, I had some projects on standby just in case something like this ever happened. It took a few months, but I was back on my feet.
Why am I posting this? Because it is important for you to know not to rest all of your eggs in one basket.
What if your AdSense account was banned? AdWords? If you rely on WSOs to earn a living, one wrong move an a mod could give you the boot (no offense to the mods, you are the best )
Do you have a backup plan? Maybe it's time you get one.
Multiple streams of income are something that I preach to all of my students, but I'm not talking about 25 blogs that all make money the same way. You should have a number of different methods of making money.
Nobody ever predicts tragedy or stupid mistakes. They just happen. Have a backup plan and don't be a victim of circumstance.
