I have some questions for those, that already earn their living in IM (if you will be willing to answer it):
How many sites have you had up and running at the moment when you went fully online and how long did it take? I am not asking how much money did you make on them at that point or anything like it, I just want to have some educated guess of how to set my long term goals and also I would like to make my own estimate how much time will it take me to support those sites.
The reason why I am asking that I like to set goals as it is always very stimualting to achieve one (all of you know that better than me) and of course it is easier to measure my progress. So far I was able to make short-term goal (successfuly finish the galenge), mid-term goal (reach state where bills for my IM activities will be more or less covered by income they generate, so i can keep learning without too much money-related stress). I would like to set my long term goal as having portfolio of sites, that will steadily generate roughly the same income I have now from my work. But so far I have no idea, what that means and I have no idea, if I can actually reach that goal while still working - I am hoping that with your answers I will be able to roughly figure that out for myself at the point when I will fully understand the process that is taught by The Challenge.
PS: If this answer was already answered somewhere, just provide a link. I did my best searching for it, but found nothing
