Here's Why You Shouldn't Quit
I have gotten some sales emails recently and, I don't know about you, but I like to keep those so I can look back and see how the hard work has paid off! So I decided to organize my emails and create a separate folder for affiliate sales.
(I had a general affiliate folder with a bunch of stuff in it.)
And what I saw when I was cleaning my folder out really shocked me.
I had emails and emails and emails of payment notifications from 2010-2011. Most of them were from Squidoo. (Anyone remember the good ol' days of Squidoo??)
Here's a small snippet:
I had sales from something called Datafeedr. I had Amazon payments. A payment from something called Biogetica. I even had a picture of my first check from Google! I still remember my first check from Clickbank too. I copied it and put it in a frame. :)
I LOVED affiliate marketing back then as much as I love it now. Yet, somehow I thought I wasn't good enough at it to keep going.
Even though I was having some success, I still quit.
WHAT WAS I THINKING??
I'm just writing this up because I know some of you are thinking of quitting right now. If you really aren't enjoying this, then I understand it might not be right for you. You should find something that you really enjoy. (Although, it could be a matter of switching niches.)
But if you LOVE it like I did, but just didn't have faith in yourself, then learn from my mistake.
I could be so much farther ahead right now. I can't even fathom how far ahead I'd be if I had stuck with it.
I wasn't bringing in the big bucks back then, but it was enough to see I should have kept going.
Please don't be like me. Don't be a quitter. It just wastes your time and your money.
Just keep going!
