@marc by the way how much money do I need if I want to survive for 6mnth in Thailand?

Haha. Living expenses in Thailand can vary greatly depending on what you want. Not sure what a minimum would be, but you shouldn't be too hard to figure out by checking Airbnb prices etc.

Keep in mind though depending on your passport you can only stay a limited time in Thailand.

@marc the 4th point is on point. I think my current job is very different. When I compare it to what I'm trying to do. I think I have to find something related to web development.
Also, you are right, The things which I learned from the security field are good. And I want to make some products for that field. I want to find one job, where I can do dev. So I can start learning in the day job and apply the same on to my side projects.
If I want to go again full-time for a job. It hardly talks 2-3 months I guess

How many months would you need to figure out if you can make a profitable business that provides sufficient income?
For this point, I really don't know what will work. I have to do a hit and try.

Also, Thanks for your input.

It really depends on how fast you ship. For example maybe on average it takes about 20 tries to find a product idea that works for you. So if you can ship really fast and try a new product once a week, then it would take 20 weeks. If it takes you a month to try a new idea, then it will take 20 months, etc.

Personally I'd probably want about 6 months to try a bunch of different ideas, find something that works, and then grow it to a point where it covers my living expenses.

@marc Maybe I'll come to Thailand and start shipping. :D

I always wanted to be a maker. But I'm also scared sometimes. Because I don't know how to survive until I start making money.

There are two schools of thought:
1) save money in your regular job to help start being a maker
2) quit and be a maker and than you have to make money

@jelmerdeboer thanks for the reply. With my current job, I have to work 40hrs. And I don't think they will agree If I want to work only for 20hrs.

If you have to choose, choose being a maker.

@swizec Thanks for the response. Maybe you are right. But I'm more concerned about, how I'm able to survive. Should I work for six more months and save up to 5k$? I'm not sure, how to take a step forward.
