When I Grow Up I Want to be an Affiliate Marketer?

Last Update: November 26, 2018

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?

Way back when, can you imagine choosing to be an Affiliate Marketer when you grew up?

It was more like a fireman, policeman, doctor, etc. Heck, Affiliate Marketing wasn't even a thing back then. Computers for a good many of us didn't even exist! Life has certainly become more interesting.


Although there are still the important and necessary occupations available that were commonplace back in the day, many of us are passing them by and heading to the internet. There are endless job opportunities today on the web, from Techy to MMO to Sales interests. And, as this is very true, some still ponder over the question, "Can people really make a living online?"

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

Perhaps it's because those in question are the ones not increasing their wealth on the internet. So, let me put it into perspective for you.---The possibilities are really endless! You just have to know where to look without getting in over your head! However, job opportunities are not all about platforms.

You can search indefinitely and come up with millions of various online jobs in all types of fields. Current businesses and professions that are open and going strong, do a huge percentage of their work online. There are:

Teachers, lawyers, accountants, authors, etc., and aside from these "mainline" occupations, there are also a whole new world of marketing jobs. Job availability has increased dramatically all around the world because of the internet---and board rooms are empty!

This being the case, a huge number of store fronts are closing and taking it online. Shopping online is now the norm and many malls have closed because of it, too.

You can even attend high school or college online, and many billions are! Both of my daughters are expanding their degrees online.


FINDING YOUR PLACE IN THE WORLD.

Getting in tune with the web is a constant process, as it's always changing and always improving. We all want our piece of the pie! The more we learn, the more we grow. After all, it isn't going away, but expanding every day! So, how do you choose where you want to be?


I think the BEST place to begin is right where you are---at Wealthy Affiliate! And now that you're here, there are many other decisions needed to be made.

This is where your passion comes in! Choose your passion and use it to help others around the world. That's right! You can choose anything you want as your business here---any occupation, any niche, any business. You can even choose to outsource the work or do it yourself.

Plus, there's extensive and amazing training here and everywhere on the web!


So, maybe you would have never chosen this line of work as a kid (if it were available), but now you can choose ANY occupation within this field. I bet children nowadays will choose to be an internet gamer, online guru or coder! Whatever the case, they can find it right here!

Find your niche in life, claim your space on the internet and excel beyond measure! We can have it all! WE REALLY CAN! Just know---it is only a matter of time till success will find you. Press on and keep your eyes on the prize! Let's rise to new levels and take full advantage of the possibilities! Can people make money online?----ABSOLUTELY!

Great post Erin. Funny story #5,041. I got my first note to take home to my parents on the 2nd day of second grade. We were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. I said a "retiree". The teacher told mom and dad, " your son marches to a different drummer". Man, was that an understatement. Have a great week. Ranking up to 114, knocking on Top 100 door. Knock, knock. Can I come in?

I may have picked affiliate marketing if it was an option back then lol. I was a computer nerd until I met my husband and he took over. 😉

Great post Erin. I never actually thought about what I wanted to be when I was young. I was to busy having fun. Hiwvet, if I had of known about affiliate marketing back then I might just have chosen it. Jim

I see what you mean, Jim! But, even before all the fun as a kid, going back even further, was there one thing you wanted to be?

I wanted to be an athlete when I was in my early teens. At one the air held state records in sprinting, long jump and triple jump. Unfortunately bad knees put an end to that. Then in the final years of high school I wanted to be either a lawyer or accountant. Jim

This is a great post and yes we can make the money online as long as we get the great training to do this business or any other business online.

We get the best training from WA. We learn how to build a website from the ground up and that is because of the training we get.

There are other advantages on the internet as well that we can do and that is great.

Everything is done on the internet and sometimes it does get frustrating but at the end of the day, we have a website and a great business that we have built from the ground up.

So don't let anyone tell you it can't be done when it can.

Nice article Erin. Our 11 year old son teaches us something new about what you can do with tools on the internet almost weekly!!

Put's us to shame!

We are happy with what ever career choices our kids make but secretly we hope they follow in our footsteps!

Life has been so stress free and wonderful since we started online.

Going to the moon was impossible once. Now it is old hat.
The word impossible is now in the rubbish bin.

Fabulous example of progress through the ages, Tom! Audrey Hepburn said it best! "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible!"

Hi Erin, once again, you are spot on. I've been teaching online now for 3 years and I won't go back to 'brick and mortar.' Besides, as you point out, the sky is really the limit here with WA, it's what we make of it that counts. Thanks for pouring out some of your amazing enthusiasm -- again :) Marc
