I think lots of us have day jobs and do side projects for all sorts of reasons - fun, problem solving, curiosity etc - but some people eventually decide they want to turn this into a full time venture. The thing is, when are you ready? What makes you finally take the plunge? I've not done it yet myself, and I'm curious how others did so?
I've added a few options in the poll, but I imagine there is a huge range of answers, so let me know in the comments!
Note: Yes, I appreciate there are various degrees of privilege that make some of these options possible for some, and not for others...that's not the point.
