    Hey guys,

    What do you suggest I have started earning some money from my website (about 20% of my full-time job salary)

    Should I resign and focus on website and convert to business? Or continue with job.

    You can do a time management, where you can properly devote your time to your home based projects without effecting your JOB.

    You can outsource the promotional parts to some agency.

    You shouldn't quit your job. If you fail in business with websites,you stay without everything. So do your job and try to find some time for business and develop it. When you think you are ready to do just websites you can quit your job.

    I know it's hard to keep a job and run an online business successfully at the same time. Been there, done that. I used to, during my lunch breaks at work, check my online business stats, do promotions, take care of questions, etc. etc. Eventually, it became a hassle for me.

    If I were you I'd walk on the side of caution. 20% isn't much. If you can continue to grow it and it becomes half or more of what you're making at work AND it continues to grow, then I'd say: Go for it!

    i suggest, file a leave of absence for a week, focus on your site. if it promises big bucks on that one whole week, check if u can go part time on ur day job. do the half-half. half on business, half on job. if the business promises security, leave ur job. otherwise, dont make any hasty decisions.

    Do not leave your job any time soon.. simple as that.

    Earning money online, unless done right, is a slippy slope and one day you could be earning 1,000 + a month but the next day that could drop to nothing. This has happened to 'loads' of people.

    It's already been said that you need to be diverse in how you earn. So earning from Adsense + affiliate + subscriptions (or something similar) + other sources should be achieved first before you consider leaving a secure job.

    Also I would not leave until you are earning at least what you do in a full time job, if you can get to that stage then just think what you could do working on them full time. You need to remember if you need Google SERPS (so adsense earnings based on being #1 for a given keyword) you can loose that over night on a SERPS change/update and you can say goodbye to most of those earnings.

    be sensible, keep working on the sites, build up various income streams then consider leaving your job when you are earning similar to a full time job.

    As top answer you have to make time management with this because in starting you must have to do with company work because with this you will get a sureness about your career and when you make sure then you can left..

    Don't quit your job until you are convinced that your website can now offer you sustenance, or better yet manage the job until your website business starts earning more than your salary. Good Luck

    Don't resign yet... If you're job is not that bad, wait until you're making 100% or more of your full income and have some set aside. That's the perfect way to do which never really happens.. LOL..

    Now what most entrepreneurs do (what I did) was start slacking at work cuz S**t, I'm making money while I sleep. LOL..

    But I got fired and went full time.

    My advise to you is you don't wanna get in a situation where you're online income is your only source of income and you have to pay bills with it in the beginning. You want to reinvest that money back into your business.

    Do your best to avoid that and you'll be ok.. Wish you the best

    You need to diversify first. Make sure you got income coming in in different ways. That way, if you site fails, you have something else to fall back on. I would also suggest what someone else here mentioned, take some time off work and put 100% into your business and see what kind of results you get. Study your competition and keep making your business different.

    I personally would not quit my job. However, there's an older school of thought where if you have a great idea, you take the risk and go with it. Especially if you are young. Many successful people have done this, but even more have failed.

    Whatever you do, make sure you have a backup plan in case you fail. You should be prepared.

    I have full-time job and my own projects. But it's not the best way. Because I must focus on my own projects to get great results.

    Working in a job you gain security. Some people need it. If you can take a chance and create your own business then do it. Some people are able to connect one with the other. If you target your business you will have to do it for a long time during the day without any time limit.

    I think buisness in best.... Now a days Real Estate is booming all over the world. Property rates are at the maximum hike and as per present condition it is for sure the it will become double and triple in next 2-3 years.
    So investment in the area that have cheap property rates presently will be benificial for the future. Example for this in Bhiwadi. There are several New Projects in Bhiwadi at affordable cost that i found suitable for starting the real estate buisness with less money.

    You need to calculate how much time you spend on your website in order to earn the 20% of your salary.
    And let said if you convert it to full time, how much you will earn ?
    For me , i will go with what i interested to do because I can do it better and spend more time on it .

    First decide what exactly do you want?

    If you want to do business,you have to take risk, resign from your job, hire someone, rent a place and start your own company.

    Initially, it would be tough and also you have to work really hard, if you are looking for success in business.

    Just decide what exactly are you looking for?

    take some money from the site and reinvest in the site. hire a VA (virtual assistant) and take the site to the next level. you won't have to spent a ton of money on VA and if you find the right one, he/she can really make a big difference and work for you while you are still at your full time job.

    good luck
