What does it mean to REALLY “be in your own business”? Important thoughts…

I conducted a webinar last week, it was attended by my best audience yet! 

But that is not what matters to me, what matters most is that I provide value to all who read and view my content whether it is live or posted here for you to view anytime. 

So, what’s on my mind? Well… there are LOTS of scams out there – so, in this 3 video series (all posted below), I begin by discussing how to evaluate an “opportunity”. And yes, I do spend a moment or two on Zeek. And… it seems as we go on, there are more and more. Just over the past few days, I was introduced to a phone “deal” that is highly NON-competitive; an information based program that costs its victims, errr – users, nearly $200/month (most of whom will never look at the info), and of course there are the endless diet products that produce temporary results at the cost of ingesting a chemical factory.

What it really means to be in your own business. (And if you are an affiliate or rep for a company, are you *really* in your own business?? And what does that mean for the long haul?)

    Alan, that’s a great point. It’s a natural progression for an online entrepreneur to move from being an affiliate/associate to owning the product. It’s one that many affiliates fail to make over time though. The successful ones see deals end eventually and the constant hunt for new deals to promote get’s old. It drives affiliates out of the business a lot of times if they fail to make that jump.

    You’re either getting better or you’re getting worse. Working toward building an online asset or even an offline asset that you drive online business towards should always be the goal of an Affiliate Marketer.

    “you’re either getting better or you’re getting worse” – great point! and…yes, repping for another company is a fine strategy (affiliate, associate), etc., the key is to start advancing your business strategies and learn something more permanent (like blog curation)
