Simon, You mean to tell me you get M&Ms, now that's just not fair... you lucky thing you...lol
May I just add, That what Simon said hit the nail on the head.
It takes a special type of person to pursue affiliate marketing full time.
You need to stay focused even when things are not going so well.
Sometimes I sit here in my office at home and one side of me thinks to itself, Maybe I would be better off with that 50k+ a year job, it would be so much easier having that 50k piece of cheese bestowed on me from my boss... but then the other side of me, gets me around the neck and slaps me in the face a few times and says "Stay focused and rely on yourself, not a piece of cheese dangling on a string in the mouse cage."
( No offence to the Affilorama guys and people who love thier jobs )
Hey it's nice and safe in there and you know you will be fed every week... but what happens when your owner forgets to feed you? or gets bored with you and lets you go, or even if your owner decides he can't afford you anymore...
Having said that, some people love what they do and if I loved my job, then I would see no reason to quit something I love to do. I may have stuff on the side as well as my job, but everyone is different.
May I also add, I now get to see my kids everyday... before when I had a stressful corporate job working 80 hours a week, I only seen my kids for maybe 30 mins at night and maybe on every second Sunday.
I may not be making 50k plus a year, but I sure am less stressed out and I get to spend time on my marriage and family now.
Just my 2 cents.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
