    A specific skill(s) will always find you work.
    If you are a good businessman with plenty of marketing skills and trick, affiliate can net you big $ with relatively small 'specific' skills ;)

    different strokes for different folks. learning a skill like web/app dev means you'll have to overcome things like building reputation, finding work, and dealing with clients. just do what you like and you'll succeed. personally i got into affiliate marketing to get away from people.

    everything takes time. will it take more time to establish a portfolio and acquire clients for web/app dev, or create a profitable affiliate marketing campaign? nobody but you can answer that. but it is answered by taking action.
    95% of affiliate marketing is about failing, learning from your mistakes, and bouncing back to do it again a different way. don't think starting a web/app dev biz will be any different. you will try and fail there too. clients with money don't come out of nowhere. you will indubitably try different strategies to acquire clients and not all of them will be successful.

    To make money in this business, don’t think. Instead just do. Because the moment you think you’re already losing out to other people who are taking action.

    No action, no results. You take action, you’ll be rewarded. This is the rule of this game.

    Hey there, to start you're in a great place for IM -- you won't find a better place to learn than BHW. Learning something like web development (i.e. coding, modern web tech, etc.) is great because a good web developer is always in demand. Not only that, but the skills you learn for web dev will benefit you greatly on your IM journey as well. I think you'll find that they are all connected (at least I have), and the more you know about each (both technical and IM concepts), the more you'll be able to do as you learn and grow.

    Just my two cents.

    You don't have to have skills to make money. A lot of these ideas just require initiative and patience. For example, you don't have to be a HTML expert to create a site, insert stuff to sell or affiliate banners. You don't have to be a guru to promote traffic either. It just requires your time. Having skills would help if course but certainly not a requirement.

    Take the job.

    If you have a job with your brother, you have a steady income. You can learn IM in your spare time, get something going, scale it up then decide what to do from there.

    There are plenty of people on this forum who work part or full time and also do IM. @Sherbert Hoover comes to mind. I think @BassTrackerBoats used to do that too. @Ste Fishkin has been doing it for years.

    You're not alone. Plus you'll have the money to invest and still pay your bills.

    I don't want to go all Gary Vee on you but what do you do from 7pm to 2am?

    Today is saturday, did you do IM today or did you do something pointless instead?
