Would love to hear an opinion from Hawk and very experienced people on dropping out of college to do CPA/PPD full time. Is it ever a good idea?

No. Although, I dropped out since I sucked at it and I am never planning to go back. I finally made money with IM and my plan is to make a lot more and quit one day to start a business. So, don't drop out. Finish it and have a back up plan.

I have thought about this my self, and honestly its a very big risk. What if PPD in 5 yrs fails. Obviously there still will be ways to make money, but have education as ur backup.. Finish school do PPD/CPA as ur FULL TIME job as u wish because u genuinely love it. But have Education as a backup just incase we start failing at Ranking, Promoting and SEO.

NO, its not. Complete college, get a degree and then do full time IM. If you dropout now and if due to any reason you can't do IM, you will regret your decision of dropping out. Always think of worst case scenario and then make your descision.

Good luck :)

Bad idea, understand, with the good comes the bad. Lets say you dominate CPA and start hitting 5k per month, then there is an update on the search engine / your website gets reported / something else - now, you have nothing being made in the way of revenue, your 3-4 years down the road and you just dropped your education for a bum pay check from the social while your trying to work out how to earn enough to even survive. Still think working online and quitting education is a good idea?

You MUST complete your education and use CPA as a hobby in the time being. First educate your brain then think about working online full time, that way you ALWAYS have something to back you up, fail this and you might end up down the road pissed off with no grades and earning jack shit online.

I myself would never suggest you to drop out college and do CPA/PPD full-time. Even though the industry is quite new and have great potentials, still the incentive part of this industry is slowly falling apart as most publishers are focusing on fake stuffs' promotions. Doesn't matter if one admit it or not, but 99% of the time, even the so called "white hat" niches are somewhat blackhat, and people promote them. For example, people are content locking simple free eBooks and promoting them for profit. They are calling these whitehat niches but apparently these are also blackhat as the provided product is of low quality and not owned/written by the publisher. So, I won't be surprised if the advertisers & networks become strict and forbid such promotions. Then, you will have really hard time making "easy" bucks from Incentive CPA/PPD. Although, this is just a "probable mishap" which might or might not occur in the future. Let's hope that it won't.

However, if you can master non-incentive CPA and CPS (Cost Per Sales) i.e. Clickbank related stuffs, then there is a high possibility that you will live an enjoyable life with more than enough cash to spend. But again, non-incentive CPA is simply hundred times harder than incentive CPA and require tremendous knowledge and patience. CPS is also very competitive, and it might take quite a while to get a hang with it.

Thus, it will be my suggestion that you should complete your education and get a good or moderate job. In the free time, you should do CPA/PPD/CPS for some extra cash. Later in your life, if you do succeed in the IM field, you can simply resign your real-life job and do full time IM. But, don't take that risk now.

I wish you all the best with your future endeavors.

That's a lot. I can start a business with that and eventually I'll stop making money via Internet, then let business autopilot & get huge. Profit.
And I'd prefer having a business than being employed, anytime.

A lot of college graduates don't get their desired jobs that they studied for years. That's happening, well in our country at least.
And the fact that people who dedicated dropping themselves out from college are not hopeless-I believe they have a different way of being successful.
They have an idea & freedom. In college, you have no choice, you'll be a robot soon, at least that's what I think.

I suggest that you don't drop out. What if something bad happens that will stop you from doing CPA/PPD?

For me, CPA/PPD is just a part time job. It won't really make you rich enough to stop working.

If you finished College and your CPA/PPD career fails, then you can still find another one.

Same here. People with a degree have NO jobs here and check this, they are OVER qualified for some jobs and they can't even work for someone just to clean their office because they have a degree. Situation here is bad and I'm hoping that I'm gonna make enough money and start my own business here and that's it.

And I totally agree with you about college. :)
