Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Pardon the cheesy line and if i'm posting in the wrong section (just not sure where the best place for this would be).
I once stumbled upon this interesting book about a guy who started making 100k a month after one year in internet marketing. He writes that he was able to do it because of the amount of free time that he had.
He got all this free time by working in a really quite IT department.
I work in IT as well, but only have enough free time to go to the coffee room to fill up my mug.
So i thought of a solution:
How about a job as a security guard in an upscale building, which theoretically speaking can give me as much as 7 hours a day of free time. All i need is to bring my laptop and a black berry(for the internet) and Voila!
It almost sounds too good to be true.
Did any of you have similar experiences?
Any thoughts on this?

How about a job as a security guard in an upscale building...
Parking lot attendant. You're sitting down, you're in a little cube, You've got your laptop, maybe even a TV set, CD player, etc... you could probably even get a little mini-fridge and stock some cold beer in there. Geez, the possibilities are endless.
But one day he was overheard speaking of/trubleshotting his side gig while a big boss was in the building. Well long story short; the dude now works as a security guard and has a great reputation of not being trusted with his work.
as a security guard myself as i have a sleep problem i work night shifts a lot.
obviously nothing to do all night long unless something occurs.
i take my laptop to work with me too.
ive learned myself quite a bit while at work.
i have a few sites under my belt but id love to make some real money out of it eventually.
i love the idea of getting paid to do what you love.... lol
now all i need to do is learn loads more stuff and get on with it.
There was so much free time on the job that I used it to surf the net and learn web technologies like HTML, Javasript and general computer programming - it was like I was being PAID to train myself for a better career! It doesn't get much sweeter than that - my only regret is that I didn't have a clue about affiliate marketing at that time......
