Screw The Nine To Five

I'm not going to lie, when Josh and I started out with our first affiliate site we made a LOT of mistakes: From the theme we used for our website to our reluctance to create a newsletter, the lack of acohesive "voice" to shoddy promotion strategies, we made nearly every single mistake you could make with that one little website.

Fast-forward to today and it is one of our biggest and most active websites in our arsenal, and we are incredibly grateful to have stumbled along and made a whole slew of mistakes right up front.


Because it allowed us to fail fast, and learn even faster. I mean, if it wasn't for those (at the time) humiliating slip ups we would never know what we know today.

We also started looking for different resources that could help finesse our online business, and realized there are 5 essential elements that every single online business needs no matter what industry you're in or monetization model you use.
