Coming out - My Secret Life as an Affiliate Marketer
After reading a couple of posts yesterday (or was it this morning?) I find it quite intriguing that many of those who commented have not told anyone about their "secret life" as an affiliate marketer.
If you missed the blogs you can check them out here:
It seems we are either worried about the response, or can't be bothered to explain it and are content to stay in the closet so to speak.
I started to tell close friends about my new career path back in March, after I had checked out WA for a few weeks just to be sure I wasn't being scammed. Once I had decided I was committed to this course of action, to become a successful online entrepreneur, so I could eventually give up my day job, I was excited.
In my experience most peoples eyes just glazed over and they tutted things like "oh yeah sounds interesting", but I could tell by their tone they actually weren't interested (I'm astute like that!).
So I stopped telling anyone.
I had discussed it with my other half, and explained it was a long term course of action, and that I would be spending about $400 AUS to commit for a year to really give it my all and see what happens.
He could feel my enthusiasm and being the supportive fella that he is, said "ïf anyone can do it, it's you". Plus secretly I think he started trawling vintage car websites in anticipation of spending our new-found wealth.
So I find it quite disheartening to read from members that their husbands/wives are either not interested or worse downright negative about our choice to pursue an online career.
For any of you experiencing this I say good on you for persevering in the face of adversary.
YOU GUYS ROCK!
We don't need to come out of the closet, we just need to prove them wrong, and do it in the most spectacular fashion.
Let's show the world (and those closest to us) that we can be wildly successful and live the life of our dreams.
Here's too many more success stories created here at WA.
I look forward to reading yours and sharing mine.
