    I don’t think it makes sense to quit your full time job until you’ve created your system you’re able to work and it’s proven over time period of at least two years on a part time basis. IF you’re able to prove that your system works (through any source of REI) and it’s producing income consistently, AND you’re able to determine that if you gave your efforts 100% you’d be making much more money if you left your full time job, only then should you seriously consider it. And before you do make sure you have all your money relationships in place because you won’t have those W-2’s to be able to count on for access to capital. Just make sure you really think this out. Run the numbers just like you run the numbers on a potential deal. Don’t get emotionally tied up in this decision. Have a long look in the mirror and make sure you’re not getting caught up in emotion and hype before giving up your job.
