upside down again

June 30, 2008

ok. i’m waaaaaay tired of thinking about this stupid book. so it’s going to be on the back burner until i get my priorities straight, but that doesn’t mean i’m quitting by any means. time off for research and development, if you will. thanks everyone for your encouragement- 1 little byrd in particular- keep it coming. and to my favorite little byrd, do tell chuck hello from her fruit. that kid must be 6 by now?

anyway- off topic as usual. what i’ve seriously seriously been digging around is still the affiliate thing. i’ve learned entirely too much about it not to pursue it. it’s going to be a little tough in the beginning but what isn’t? and since i’m a self-proclaimed expert on almost everything (just ask me) i should have no problem finding and sticking with a niche. some of these people are insanely committed, some not so much, and some of them should probably be committed. i’m sure i’ll have plenty more to say about that later.

by the way- i mentioned get rich quick schemes recently. in case you run across a few (or a few hundred) they are most easily identified by the ridiculous yellow highlighting of certain text points scattered throughout the altogether false promises that you too (by implementing these proven systems!!! of course) will wake up to find that you’ve made $10,397.44 OVERNIGHT!!! if only it were that easy. and why in the hell is there always some ludicrous .44 or .32 tacked onto the end? does this make it seem more credible? what are they thinking?!?! however- if you get sucked down like so many others- let me know how the proven systems!!! work for you. i’m always in need of a good laugh. besides, anybody with half a brain knows that making money takes work not proven systems!!!. best of luck anyway.

So. I’ve been looking really really hard for ways to stay home with my children. I really do not want to go back to the corporate rat race if I can help it. It’s not at all that I’m lazy or unmotivated, I just believe that the best gift you can give your children is yourself. Correct me if I’m wrong, but time falls into that category quite neatly. So I’m dying to find a way to work from home so I can be here for them, with them, whatever. Life’s too damn short and I want to see all 3 of them grow up.

I’ve been consumed by this affiliate marketing thing. I have tried to learn everything I possibly can on the subject, and I’ve noticed that there are a whole lot of get rich quick schemes out here on the internet. A whoooole lot, and I don’t even think I’m trying to get rich. Supplementing the income I can make in the real world would be good enough. Hell, I’d settle for get rich slow… Anyway- there are a lot of seriously heavy hitters in the affiliate marketplace. Kyle and Carson (of Wealthy Affiliate fame), John Chow, Ewen Chia, and Shawn Collins, just to name a very very few. But I have no idea what sets these people apart from the general population! How in the world are they as successful as they are? Is it the $14.97 e-books? The forums? What is it? Maybe I’ll write an e-book. See you guys tomorrow!
