Are you a full time digital entrepreneur or do you own a physical shop? No, I am employed so for me it is a side hustle. I am a full time digital entrepreneur.

Is this a long time business or a short term business ? It is a long term business.

Would you consider this is as an only source of income ? Not really like I mentioned the business is very seasonal so I need another source of income.
