Any BIG fish here? It's really interesting to see what are the roads to big earnings and what is the potential with each path.
It would be a real help to me and many others on this forum, If you could share the level of your monthly income and the road you took to reach that level.
This would help tremendously people that are at the crossroad at the moment and need to make a decision that potentially will make or break their life.
This is basically because there are time limits to every period in everyone's life. For example, a single man has more spare time on his hands to try different ways than a guy who has a wife, 2 children, bunch of bills and needs to put food on the table...
Since this is my first post, I'm going to introduce myself, share how much I make and why I'm at this crossroad.
My name is Valentine, age 30, I'm currently working as a quality manager in a small electro-mechanics company, I earn $1,500/month with 200 hours of work. This is pretty lousy considering the title, but it's roughly based on the level of salary I had before I got certified quality engineering and certified quality manager diplomas.
If I change work. Today with 6yrs experience and Certifications I can get a clean (after taxes) $2,000-$3000 in the best case considering the area where I live for approximately the same level of work 200-220 hours/month.
Since I got to the conclusion that having a boss, driving to work every day and having to deal with problems and sometimes yelling people is not in alignment with my vision, the lifestyle and my mission in life. I'm looking to return back to internet, as the primary source of income. This will allow me the relative peace of mind and soul to do the things that matter the most to me.
Since I learned computers in high school and worked 5 years online prior to this job. I know what it is to be the boss of yourself. What it feels like waking in the morning when you want, checking stats to find out that you earned extra cash while sleeping. That's literally the difference between the hell I'm in today and the paradise I used to have and I walked away from.
Since internet landscape pretty much changed very much over the past 6 years. I will be really grateful for your input in helping me and I believe many others on this forum to make the Right decision.
The key to success in quality engineering and management is:
"Doing the Right thing, Right, Right the first time."
I need to decide on what's that "Right thing" is for me...
Thank you very much!,
