    Hi Alan,

    I’ve been exploring network marketing opportunities and was pleased to find someone in the South Florida area, as I am – though on the other coast.

    I have not yet committed to an MLM, and thought – in the interest of finances, that I should start with affiliate marketing.

    Though I have learned a lot in my research, and am wrapping my head around the concepts, I have yet to put anything concrete into action, and am at a loss as to exactly how to start off.

    I have almost finished Jonathan Budd’s “Top Producer” book, and this had contributed greatly to my understanding.

    Do you have any pointers you can share with me? Will you be attending the “No Excuses Summit” in Las Vegas in July?

    Thanks and have a wonderful day!

    Patti Shaw
