Hi,

I have been a member of FD for about a year ago but not made considerable progress, because I have a 9 to 5 job and I just see Flashden as an on the side thing . But now I want to quit the job and considering using FD as a full-time job.

So before I do this I need to know what the prospect / future is with FD and also how does the money broker option work for countries that paypal does not allow like mine?

Thanks

Consider advantages and disadvantages to go fulltime into commercial stock movie development

Pro:
- Varying income. Can be high
- Indepenency. No boss and only responsible to yourself
- Motivation. You can create whatever you want.
- No traveling. Home based work has practical advantages

Cons:
- Varying income. Can be low
- No colleagues to socialize with
- No unemployment and retirement guarantees
- Can get into conflict with family-life/time
- Requires self-imposing-routine

I’m sure FD authors have lots more for the list

Thanks Guys

Maybe I also need to say that I don’t really like my job anymore and might quit anyway. It is more of a software and programming job but I want to be more of a designing person and In need of more flexibility. So i really want to know what to do if i quit …

it depends on how much money you need to live. If you can live with 200-300USD monthly, then do it. If you need more money, then…. you need an additional income. I mean 200-300 is achievable. On the other side nothing can be guaranteed. Just you have to try, try try and to see what’s best for you. Be positive, jump bravely and if it happen to fail, try again. Good luck.

If you go solo, become a full-time freelancer. Then start working on FlashDen files in your down-time. This way you’ll have multiple sources of income. After all, I think there’s only a few here that can/do make a living from FD alone.
