Yes. We were planning on me quitting anyways, and I wanted to put all of my focus into web development and coding. I have eliminated most of my debt, had a small bit of money saved and I’m focusing all of my time/energy into this for the time being. Mind you, I didn’t give up some glorious job. I was breaking my back, had to drive an hour away, driving a truck in very high local traffic, and it paid absolute crap for what I was doing. We saw this as a better use of my time with the potential of a better return.
To answer your questions, I have been able to keep a consistent schedule. I’m actually putting in more time than I had anticipated. I initially planned on committing 4-6 hours a day during the week. However, I’m putting in more hours, and not just during the week. When I’m not coding, I’m watching youtube videos, discussing webdev on reddit, reading articles, etc. I’m all in.
What keeps me motivated: My thirst for knowledge, desire to be better at anything I do, and my sights set on the future and what it may bring if I end up getting good at this.
If you want to put all of your time into this and have some money to hold you over and can work part time while you do it, I say go for it! It’s a great investment and a good skill to learn. In my case, if I can land a job doing this, even on the lowest-tier of coding job possible, I’d make more than what I was before I started doing this, and it’d be doing something I enjoy in a much better work environment. Good luck!
