Hello everyone, I'm glad to be here. I come here after quite a journey of living on the edge, barely scraping by, and feeling trapped by outdated jobs in a destroyed economy. One of my friends came into town for an affiliate summit and a while ago was pretty much in the same boat as I am now. He barely had any money when he started and now has over $200k in the bank and consistently makes $10k a month in a little over a year and half in the industry. The thing is he only makes that much because he spends the majority of the time traveling around the world and partying. After asking him to break all this down to me I sat with him for hours as he went over the industry, tactics, the networks he uses, the terminology, and which forums(like this one) I had to study. I may be a beginner with only a theoretical understanding so far, but I am here with a real appreciation for what is possible and with a drive I haven't felt for longer than I can remember to make things happen. It will take a long time, there will be hard learning curves, and a significant amount of work let's not b.s. about that. However, what is possible is a business that we can create out of nothing and could give us real freedom. I say let's get started.
