I believe that there is enough work to go around. I started very part time about 1 1/2 years ago, to supplement my regular job, and some time this year, the supplementaty income surpassed the income from the 9-5 job. I learned seo in addition to website design because I felt that if I could offer something more than every other webmaster and their brother, that I would have a small edge. Nowadays, everyone claims to be an seo, so that edge is not so sharp anymore. But...there are still lots and lots of small businesses out there that do not have websites. I do believe that with a well thought out strategy - you can still make money in this business :) Good luck to you and I'd like to add that you've come to the right place. For knowledge as well as support.
