Not Getting A Day Job!!

Hi guys,
I've decided not to get a day job and pursue Internet Marketing as a business. Basically I had a small start in 2009 with AffiloBlueprint, but then gave up on it while I was studying full time. Now I've decided it's what I want to do, and so I'm going to do it properly!
I've actually made a blog where I'm going to be going through my progress: www.thebigventure.com
But more importantly, and excitingly, I'm starting with a big BANG! I'm challenging myself to make a consistent $400 per week, after the first 4 months of working on my sites! Can I do it?
Well I will also be documenting my progress with this challenge (which I call 4M400) on my blog, www.thebigventure.com - there's a page there explaining it all in detail.
I posted this here to hopefully inspire those many many newbie affiliate marketers who are just beginning, and those who are learning but haven't started. You will all know soon enough, how much can be done in 4 months, because I'll be going hard!
Wish me luck guys, hope to see tons of support!
Cheers,
Ashton

Good luck, but I think you should still find a part time job if you are able to find one.. helps a lot!

Yeah I was thinking that. Basically my situation is:
Just finished school, starting Uni in 1 month (was going to do an accounting degree, but now trying to get into a business entrepreneurship course. Hoping I can learn some stuff from there for business in general because I'm more of a general entrepreneur as well as a netpreneur).
So I'll always be working on business (affiliate marketing mainly my first one), as well as doing Uni... so with a pt job too, that's less time.
My situation as well is that I don't really need the $ desperately, I actually did 1 full year of ecommerce business on ebay during school last year, and made a couple grand which will last me through this affiliate stage and expenses etc for probably a year or so. The only reason I was thinking pt job was to take up some time rather than just working solely on affiliate stuff but also the instant $ coming in would be a bonus.
So it's a tough choice for me with the pt job because most people do it for the money, but im figuring if i dont need the money, i may as well not waste the time, rather invest it in affiliate which can hopefully pay off in a few months?
Thanks for the wishes and your response :)

Hi Ashton,

In that case, concentrate on internet marketing. Since money is not the issue, internet marketing experience will do you more good than a short-term, part-time job.

If you have to take a loan to go to university, then you shouldn't do it.. if your parents are paying for it then you should lol

Yeh it's a loan lol but government "hex" so you only pay inflation 3% a year. - that's good reasoning never looked at it that way tho

I figure that your decision to not get a day job is the result of calculating the risks and benefits, and weighing your options. I respect you for it and I certainly respect your decision :)
