Also John K. do you run this excellent site full time or employed elsewhere ?
Although I spend more time on this site than I should (and there is still al load of stuff I want to do to improve it), it is by no means a paying job. There are a few advertisers who cover the cash costs (thank you!), but there's very little surplus.
I am an RYA Advanced Powerboat Instructor, but I do very little of it. It's not a good way to try to make a living as there are too many people doing it as a lifestyle choice (backed up by other income such as a pension from a previous career), or as a hobby "for a very small amount of pocket money"
-- also training private individuals, as opposed to corporate training, severely limits the daily rate that can be achieved.
I have worked as a project manager and IT consultant, but now all my time is taken up with running a firework display company. Another way not to get rich quickly! As you will see from www.swpf.com
I shouldn't really be spending any time on RIBnet as I haven't even got my "work" web site completed . . .
