if this is a new ish character with no standings the smaller cargo hold ship is probably better till you can do level 4 missions.
basicly any level(90%sure level 2, 100% level3) of courier mission will pay more then a venture mining from my experience

Day 2 Morning: Wallet: ~10.000.000 ISK

Looks like a low income, but I had some investments taken yesterday:

Buffed up my Badger to hold more cargo, this was around 6 mil ISK, it can now hold 16.458 m**3 of load.
Moved with my Venture away from the newbee mission station to a 0.6 system with some 0.5 systems around. I hope to have more income there with mining. I had to buff up the venture too to be able to stand the fights with the Guristas there. And I did some miss-buys

I equipped the Venture with an Thermal Dissipation Field, as it has reasonable Kinetic resistance, but in the fight the shield still got down to 50%. So I will try it with a kinetic hardener today.

Fittings of both ships are at the bottom of this post.

I might try to do some courier missioning too, as it is an experiment, but first I want to level up negotiations up to 2 (alpha max), I have connections up to 2 (alpha max) already. But I need to buy the skill first. Standing with Caldari State is 1.47 as the initial career missions gave a good boost. Also I want to have mining up to 4 (currently training) to have better mining results and then do mining for some days, so I can compare to the courier income.

Thank you all for your attentions, any comments are welcome.

Day 3: Evening: Wallet: ~33.000.000 ISK

This seems to be just around 11 mil per mining day.

I am restricting myself and have the miner running only for about 8h.
I do not see any relevant effect from having finished Mining to 4 this early morning.

I am thinking of trying the Courier. I have Contacts and Negotiations at 2 and Social at 3 (Alpha Max), standing with Caldari State is 1.47
The Badger can hold more than 16.000 m**3 of cargo, should be sufficient for lvl 2 missions and I could immediately start with those.

Day 4: Midday: ~49.000.000 ISK

I am running the Courier since yesterday night. I was running all night, I am going to stop it now and giving it a pause.
I made a (currently unnecessary) investment: I set up a one man corporation: cost 1.500.000 ISK
Also I bought the necessary Scordite for the trade missions: ~500.000 ISK

I gained in the night 3 "Beta" implants from trade missions, which I could sell all for over 3 mil each in Jita.

In general it seems that the Courier can yield more income than the Miner with my skillset, even with just lvl 2 missions.

You will need about 120k Omber for lvl 3 missions and 200k of Kernite. Better to mine it and send to your home station via a public contract.
