So we work like typical bedroom affiliates that will work I work late into the evening on my affiliate work, and then go back to my day job and an income come back and do affiliate. By 2011, 2012 We were in the position where we had enough income and stable income, that we were ready to ditch the nine to five and go 100% into the affiliate business at the same time, because my affiliate marketing, traffic relied on organic traffic from Google. I didn’t realize at the time how fragile that was… and it didn’t work out…
