My name is Leonid. I am originally from Russia, but I have lived in the U. S. for more than 20 years. I am new to affiliate marketing. My background is mostly academic. I love my college teaching job, but it is a part-time position and it doesn't bring me and my family (I have a wife and small daughter) enough money to make ends meet. I like to do online research and try new things. I want to create affiliate sites and market good products. I welcome any help and advice.
