I still do offline business.
I remember reading a saying here that if you want to make a living purely online, before you lose that day job, be sure to reach about double the earnings you need to maintain your current lifestyle, because one day, you'll probably lose 50% for no apparent reason. With Panda in 2011, I think that saying has been proven its worth. Also, if you're successful, instead of cranking up that lifestyle dramatically, or increase your business expenses too rapidly, you should be saving for a rainy fund.
