Quit Job for AdSense

To be honest, I do not know anyone who relies solely on their AdSense income. I was browsing the Google AdSense forum at WebmasterWorld and found a thread named last fri. i quit my job,for adsense: need your "good luck". In that thread, the member said that he received 1 check, that check basically covered his rent. He admits he needs more money, but is willing to take the risk of quitting his day job to enjoy life and self-independence. As you can imagine there are many wishing this member the best of luck and offering him sage advice. He has my best wishes.

I hope he's diversified enough and not too reliant about Adsense. Its great when it goes well but every now and again a bad month hits and its good to have a back up. Its a great lifestyle though - working at home, flexible hours (lots of them but flexible), good money and interesting work. I love it.

It's a perfectly valid goal to which to be able to live off of your AdSense earnings alone, whether or not you actually choose to "quit your day job" (or, for the already self-employed, sever your other income streams). Anybody who has been self-employed for long enough, or has been around other self-employed individuals (or even small businesses) for long enough, probably has a horror story about somebody who had to rebuild after losing the client who was responsible for half or more of their revenue.
