The culture of Internet marketing is sometimes warped. When reading some message boards and blogs, I get the impression that too much is never enough for many.
I was reminded of this ethos recently when I declined an opportunity to speak at a conference, because I have plans for a family vacation at the same time.
The response I got from the organizer…
Vacation, or great money making opportunities, hmmm… which would I switch? The show is 120 days away… can’t change your vacation plans?
I reiterated my “no thanks.”
I’ve got to admit that I have been guilty in the past of focusing too much on work. I still do sometimes. But in the grand scheme, I’m working on a paradigm shift to work smarter, not harder.
Affiliate marketing allows for a flexible lifestyle. Certainly, there are lots of “great money making opportunities,” but I’d prefer to focus on the great life opportunities it affords.
