Many of us would love to venture out on our own and work for ourselves. However, two major factors tend to get in the way. 

1/  Money 

and 

2/  Risk. 

Neither of these are trivial .

Even small bricks and mortar businesses need a substantial amount of capital to get them started. The risk factor is even scarier. 

Did you know  up to 90% of all small businesses fail within the first year.

Do Your Due Diligence

You must do your due diligence and look up bonafide Online companies providing the necessary training, courses and seminars that claim to hold the secret of instant wealth.

Please remember, that by attending a course/s you should have all of the tools necessary you need to get your business off the ground and become a a great affiliate marketer.

Not TRUE!!!

Courses and Seminars

These courses and seminars are usually quite expensive and are offered for FREE. 

The person giving the seminar or course is likely to be a very successful online Guru with an 8 figure income and while they do give out information at the course or seminar, their true goal is to sell you their latest book, software or program

If the truth be told, everything you learned from the seminar was probably written in their book.

You could have saved thousands if you had just bought their book and read it rather than shelling out for this course.
