Build A Website
What's up Young Boss! We all need an attractive website to succeed in affiliate marketing. I remember, years ago, to build a website you either needed to know how to code or you had to pay a couple hundred bucks for a company to build a site for you. If you had a friend that was comfortable using the first DIY website builders then you could give them $50 to hook you up, but it has never been this easy. If you are not familiar with WordPress, then you need to embrace it right now. WordPress is the website builder of nearly 60% of all websites online right now. At, we will focus on building our websites on WordPress, until something better comes along. At one point, building a website was pretty technical but now it has become super easy for novices to fig

Affiliate Marketing: Marginalized Communities Have the Most to Gain

Creative Ways to Make Money
We Are Moving into A New Economy with a New Definition of Work The world is a big place and everyone does not have the same opportunities coming out the womb. This is why people organize and fight for equity in marginalized communities. Not every white person is rich and not every black person is poor. In America, a lot of people are struggling to get by. As an organizer for a major labor union, I traveled the states talking to workers of different ethnic backgrounds, from upper middle-class families to those living in a homeless shelter. The honest truth is that everyone wanted better for their families and they didn't mind putting in the work to accomplish it. The second truth is, the concept of work is no longer the 9 to 5 job that you work at for 40 years and then retire with a p...

Wealthy Affiliate Overall Ranking: 97 out of 100 Price: $0 - $47 Owners: Kyle and Carson Website: INTRODUCTION My name is Monica and I have been an entrepreneur for the past 15 years. When I came across Wealthy Affiliate in 2017, I was recovering from an injury and needed to focus my energy on building a system that would work on its own, without me.  I needed a system that I could build and work from home because I needed to go to physical therapy quite often in the beginning. I was already exposed to affiliate marketing from my good friend Cedric. He was always talking about his affiliate sites but I never considered it, until I got I hurt. I truly believe that my injury was a blessing in disguise. Before I was working extremely hard for little return.

Writing Content is like Dropping Bread Crumbs

Build A Website, creating content, Find A Niche, Motivation
Did you know that it typically takes a person seeing something 7 times before they make a purchase? Especially if it is something that they are not familiar with. Even when shoppers go to the mall and appear to be buying on impulse, they have probably seen commercials, street advertisements and heard recommendations on what products to buy. By the time they get to the mall, they only have to decide if they have the money to buy it or not. This little fact should motivate you to continue to create content on a daily basis. Make sure that you are sharing it on all of your social media pages also. When you tell your friends about it, don't get emotional if they don't look at your site on the first attempt. It hasn't sunk in yet. Keep telling people about what you are doing and then

Having a Job Just Isn’t Enough

Book Club, Motivation
  Hey, Young Boss! I just got off the phone with a friend that has recently quit his job. I asked what happened and he told me " It wasn't a good fit." I knew exactly what he meant. Let's break down the purpose of a job. A job is the task of building or creating goods or services for a company, that pays the worker a small fee. The company pays for the good or service to be created so that the Company can generate revenue off the sale of the product or service. The revenue made off of the sale of the good or service is at least 3 times a much as the amount paid to the person doing the job. If the company did not make at least 3 times as much from selling the product or service, then it would not be profitable to hire someone to do the job. Does that make sense? In most

Boss of the Week: Pimp C

Boss of The Week, Motivation
What's up Young Boss, One of my favorite bosses is the late Pimp C from the rap duo UGK (Underground Kings). Most of his lyrics and wisdom are too explicit to repeat on this website but Pimp C would always advocate for people being true to themselves. He would call out other rappers who were lying about being drug dealers, gangsters, and pimps, just to sell albums. Although he lived a life in the streets, he believed that it was harmful to rap about things that you had never experienced. He knew how detrimental this would be hip hop listeners and to the music industry. Pimp C knew that every lifestyle came with consequences, so if you are rapping about the street life you can't just talk about the money and fame. You must also rap about going to jail, seeing people getting...
