I've been flying for a year now. I have a good day job but am interested in pursuing my part 107, so I can create an income-generating youtube channel, as well as pursue gig work. I want to preface my questions with the understanding that becoming a professional takes a great deal of time, training, dedication, and humility. I'm writing these questions here, after several googling sessions I felt like I didn't have a solid grasp on any of these issues:
- Is the exam (part 107) difficult enough to merit preparing with a service? if so, can anyone recommend a service? I work in Actuarial Consulting, am highly skilled at taking and preparing for tests, if relevant.
- What professional opportunities, if any are best for solo- or two-person operations starting up? I was thinking real estate. Most google search results look like they were written by robots or click-harvesting schemes, and thus weren't very helpful. I live in a city (Denver, Colorado), and have the ability to travel to nearby areas
- Any other advice? I feel a certain calm and happiness in flying, and would love to develop that to the point it can provide some earning for me and my family
