The recent discussion at the above mentioned thread makes me to put my case infront of fellow webmasters for advice.
After 4 years of working on my online business the income from it is more than 3 times than my day job income. This is the trend of last 7 months.
For the past couple of months I am thinking of resigning but there are certain constraints which are bothering me. These are:
1. I have 3 kids and a spouse.
2. I am operating from an Asian Country, but my business revolves around US/European companies. I find it very difficult some times to get into certain programs due to my nationality. For example, I am still without Paypal, as they do not operate here. On certain websites I cant use my Credit Cards, as they do not accept Credit Card Online Orders from the IP which belongs to my country, although I am there partner providing $$$$ business per year to them.
3. Political and Internal stability here is not that great, but improving vastly.
My worries are whatif I leave my day Job and the companies operating from US ceases business with me due to some adverse political development. Please keep in mind that previously such sanctions were imposed on my country.
It will be very difficult for me to get a decent Job again as there is high rate of unemployment here.
Do you guys advice to carry on with the Job and continue to work on my sites in whatever free time I get (which at this moment is ruining my personal life).
Looking for your valuable advices.
