    Ok, it's been a while since I haven't posted anything yet.

    I have been in affiliate marketing since 2005, and tried almost every single way to get traffic, like most of us did.

    Craigslit,adwords,FB ads, e-mail, articles, media buying, offline marketing, etc.

    I made good money with it, especially with online casino's ( 250$ cpa can't go wrong!)

    Felt good, but needed more....

    The point of my post is simple: If you want to be successful in what you do, start by doing something you are REALLY into, and listen to yourself. If you always feel that your not in control, not involved as much as you wish at the jobs you have, maybe it's time to realize that you are a born entrepreneur.

    I woke up last year, in October.

    At the time,I was working at a 9-5 job that I loved. It was a pretty cool job on the road for a big wholesale supplier of a product that 97% of people buy at least every two year.

    While doing my jobs, I was seeing the numbers go by, and realized that the profit margins were great.

    Anyway, in almost exactly a year, I created my business,got a Canada INC number, a small desk with all the office stuff people usually have(lol), and kicked myself in the ass.

    Printed business cards, got a new truck with lettering. All the kit.

    Important point :My employer became one of my supplier. It's pretty easy to negotiate better prices when the sales rep is your fellow ''good guy'' coworker ( too easy!). Their goes the profit margins, UP!

    Paid for custom-made really sick e-commerce website.

    I took action, I got results.



    We will finish 2013 with almost 100 000$ in sales. ( yes WE, I have a partner and even one employee!!! I still can believe it when I type it.

    So the point is: STOP PROCRASTINATING, LISTEN TO YOURSELF, DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LET THE ENTREPRENEUR IN YOU FREE, START READING MORE BOOKS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY: TAKE ACTION.


    If this post motivates only 1 person, I will be more than happy.


    Merry Christmas to all of you BH'ers.

    Don't forget, if you take action, 2014 will be the best year of your life.

    Thanks for the motivation, math182. First time that I said something like that to math. I hate algebra.

    Great motivation! I think most people who do not take action are to busy trimming their hairy palms.
