Simply ask yourself this: If there would be a way to save money + increase productivity + earn optional cash-back on goods and services you are using already? Then what's stopping you to recommend that to others? As that's all I did with every(thing) I ever purchased. Then in 2012 I setup the 'My Digital Rolodex' Excel sheet; to keep track of all my purchases of all my online apps & services. Overtime the list has grown into 1001+ recommendations. About 90% of the tools / apps / plugins can be obtained freely or for a small fee in App Stores. And then -- around 2014 -- a switch took place from one-time fees, to the SAAS model (Software As A Service). Did I remain to be a customer of ALL companies?
Every buying decision I ever made and will make, is to fulfil a need, save time/money, bridge a gap, to get me from A to Better faster. How much something costs? Is not really relevant to me. Instead, it's all about how much value I can 'squeeze' from a purchase and how fast I can be break-even. As a result I rarely join hype, and I laugh at people who talk about 'market saturation'. As long as you're a happy customer and your neighbours never heard about it? You got an abundance of opportunity!
Also shared this at my BusinessForHome.org profile back in 2012: Formula for financial freedom = residual income – residual bills >= 0. To earn more money, starts with learning how to cut down on your expenses, by eliminating costs, and replacing a bunch of things by 1 or a free solution. Do what feels comfortable with the budget you got. But definitely chose 1 company which pays out over multiple generations of happy customers. As that will GUARANTEE LONG TERM fully passive income streams through teamwork and VALUE leverage.
Thus ... NEVER ever CHASE the flow of MONEY! As what that only tends to create is a vacuum in your balance sheet which breathes dispair instead of happyness. And here's again how I'm different from 'marketers' who hop from one 'opportunity' to the next without ever using a product. And it's these type of people (I called them 'cows' here) who then preach about FOCUS, and how you should stick to something even if you don't earn money. "Treat it as a business" is a common phrase. NO! Not when you've been a consumer all your life! Instead become an Affiliate Ambassador and you can't fail. The best reward you can get -- by recommending something you love and use anyway -- is somebody else loving it as much. Value & gratitude always comes before profits. And only a handful of what I recommend -- less than 3% of the total list -- has some kinds of financial rewards program (affiliate, MLM, member-gets-member). FFWD to 2014 I got an idea to build a system around my Top 25 income streams with a project 'codenamed' OPTIONS4ALL.net
Something I've very keen on is; location independent entrepreneurship. Which is not about travelling the world 4 times a year of 3 months each; although you can if you want to. As all you need is a laptop and smartphone these days. The point I'm trying to make: the only address I have that has been the same for a decade? Is my email address! I do NOT do physical product relationship marketing type of deals, cause whereto would they have to ship it? Besides the fact -- and it doesn't matter what angle you look at it -- that those pills, potions, lotions, perfume, waterfilter type of deals? ALL got volume based compensation plans. Meaning 'stacking stuff' in your garage for the sole purpose to qualify for a "sales bonus" with goods you cannot sell, nor consume. Been there; done that; never again! If that's YOUR definition of value? Doing others a disfavour for the sake of making a quick buck? Then you will probably not be a great addition to any of my ambassador teams.
