    Default full time or part time poll

    I haven't seen this poll for a while and I don't know how to start a poll so can someone do this for me. How many of you are casino affiliates full time or part time as a job?

    part time here.. foe shoo. So far I'm trying to subsidize my income. I keep hearing people talk about going full time, but I just can't see myself doing that yet. I don't even have a projection of when it's possible. I need to convert more.

    Part time... And learning how to focus my time better, outsource things that can be outsources, and make sure I have time for everything else in my life.

    I work 40 hours or more although this is not my primary source of income. Well, at my age I can afford that, hoping one day it may become the primary source of income.

    My goal for making this a full time job was last september but it's slipped twice now... i am lucky enough to earn some decent money in my 'real' job and i guess i just don't have the balls to leave at the moment.

    Every time I have a good month I think about leaving work, but then a bad month comes and I am glad I didn't !

    I work in excess of 40 hrs on my affiliate work, curruntly I am on a medical LOA from work so it is more than 60 I guess, even when I am at work 40+ hrs I still put in over 40 hrs a week in this crazy world.

    Work less then forty hours/week as an affiliate. One day I am hoping it can compete with my real net job.

    My GPWA interview explained exactly how my day is made up. I split it between my real job and this. I aim to get the site big enough in the next year to make being a casino affiliate more full time I love this business but I still need more converting players for it to be worthwhile taking over more of my time.

    Definitely part-time, and now scaling back the amount of time I spend on this until it produces a level of income that would justify further work. I've spent in excess of 40 hours a week on this for over a year and produced an income equal to about a week of 'normal' work. Logic dictates that something has to change.

    I'm sure we all get into this with the intention of it being able to generate a 'side' income. But I wonder how many actually get to that level.

    I wonder to. I would be interested in knowing how many people in under 2 years have made a fortune? I also wonder how many gave up their jobs in just over a year to pursue as an affiliate as it was becoming so profitable.
