Tons of folks around the world try to create an income via the internet in their spare time. On of those ways is by becoming an affiliate for an existing company and earning money via it’s affiliate scheme.
While there are numerous benefits of becoming an affiliate to an already established, trusted company there are also some overlooked drawbacks which prove problematic for most people when it comes to creating that all important income they’re after.
Having something which is already established goes a long way to removing the drive and focus you actually need to become successful as your own boss.

Everybody likes the idea conjured up by internet businesses. You know, the one where the ‘Guru’ sits on a beach with an automatic income rolling in each month… There’s an endless queue of people willing to waste money seeing if they can get lucky and find that for themselves.

Nobody can become your own boss for you.
