Dataguy, thanks for sharing your story. I kinda experienced the opposite.
I quit my day job in the Aerospace field about 2 years ago to try to make a living online. (I wasn't making a lot but was simply passionate to give it a try)
Unfortunately, after 3 months I realized that I couldn't rely on the earnings and before it was too late, I went back to the company and found a different job.
I worked there for about less than a year and realized that I just couldn't do the 9-5 thing again. 5 years was more than enough. So I quit again, left the US and started my own company in the food industry. I decided to continue the web business as a hobby regardless of its earnings.
