    I'm going to quit my full time job and attempt to get some of my personal sites generating more revenue and work on freelancing more.

    I've saved up enough to live income free for a year... so i'm giving myself 6-8 months to see this through 110% before contemplating going back to a fulltime gig.

    Wish me luck :x:

    weren't you making a few thousand a month from the clearcheckbook site? I'd think you'd start pushing and promoting that one a long time ago.

    I just went to that site, you REALLY need to redesign. The front page at the minimum.

    The front page is completely worthless from the selling point. When the page just loads, all you see is a wall of text.

    offices are nice, but if he is starting out, it is not needed, a waste of money

    if you can't concentrate at home and get what you need done, then you need to get new priorities

    I have 5 kids and work from home and go to school full time and I do it all out of my house for the time being

    Focusing on ClearCheckbook first. I want to get that up to speed before focusing on other projects. Clearcheckbook is basically my "portfolio" so i want it to be up to my standards before i start promoting myself with it.
