I need kind of smart advice
I am Ruby developer with 2+years of experience in rather small city in East Europe. I was doing lots of offline jobs before I decided to learn programming, also did some really small affiliate business.
Now, though I am getting some rather "good" money as for my country, it's still 1) not even close to 10$/hour; 2) I am ~30 and I want to stop trading time for money and leverage somehow my skills; 3) to be honest, programming is sometimes fun and involving, but most of time I am bored, so I would do something more interesting and at the same time more profitable where paid for efforts, not time. The only thing I can think of is freelance, but it still is pretty close to full-time job, no leverage, lots of low-rate competitors.
Maybe someone was/is in similar situation an can suggest any sort of ideas at this point.
