I am Lou, retired from England and living on a government pension, living in Thailand, been in affiliate marketing a couple of years.
I think if you are serious about internet marketing there is a lot of stuff you have to learn, it`s a massive learning curve, and a lot of people get disheartened if they don`t make any money in the first couple of weeks or lose a bit of money, it takes time to learn new things, I have plenty.
Even writing this is very difficult for me because if you are like me and are bit private about your life and stuff, you don`t want to tell the world about your private life, I know for younger people it`s easy because they are growing up with it, but if you want to move forward in your life and out of a rut if you like to Para a phrase! You have got to move with the times.
I have found out that I quite enjoy writing, and I like to help where I can, but I am not really into small talk, I think giving good information for stuff is good because people enjoy that, they are getting some value hopefully.
