What Does It Cost To Start An Online Business: Affiliate Marketing 101
Search it on Google yourself, and discover numerous perspectives. You have the “Ancient,” “American Engineers,” and the “New” Seven Wonders of the World.
Like WTF, which of these perspectives is accurate.
Now comes the kicker. The world is beautiful, and the truth is up to you. There will always be people who segment beauty into buckets, and force you to choose.
The same is true when building an Online Business.
Accept people tell you about The 500 Tools (Wonders) of the Online World.
Truth is, you can build a strong, long lasting business w/ less than 10 TOOLS.
Sure, you can buy 25 tools, and feel super confident knowing you have invested additional money into 25+ tools that may distract you, hold you back, or you never use.
You may even introduce these “time saving,” “ninja hacks” to your community in the hopes of helping them build a business. Time will tell how that goes….
Look back at the tools you have bought, and highlight those you use daily/weekly.
