There are too many marketers out there calling themselves newbies. Why? If you've been online for a year or more when do you become an experienced marketer? If you keep pinning this label on yourself why do you do it?

Are you in any one of these categories? If you've been marketing for any length of time online, for sure by now you must've learned something that is of value to someone who doesn't know it.

If you've spent huge amounts of time learning how to make a living from affiliate marketing, no doubt you've spent hours behind a computer screen tapping away at your keyboard trying to learn as much as you can as fast as you can. You are not a newbie.

You know or have learned something that could be of utmost value to someone who doesn't know it. If you were to give practical advice to a multi-million dollar marketer does that make him/her a newbie?

Bullies and Strong Opinions

You may have come across a seasoned professional who knows the ins and outs about a particular way of marketing and has the credentials to back it up and who may unfortunately spend more time talking than thinking.

There are those individuals who unfortunately feel the need to blast out their feelings because they are unable to exercise a lack of self control when it comes to the use of the tongue. But guess what?

What they think does not have to be your reality. Period. Don't let these over opinionated SOB's steal your enthusiasm and drive you away. Have a thick skin and continue with your mission.

The Reality

If you are online looking for a second income or trying to replace it altogether, than your first responsibility is to your family. None of these over inflated know-it-alls is gonna offer to help you out no way. That's the reality. This post applies to this and any other forum or blog post out there.

Accepting Responsibility

Getting back to being a newbie. Hiding behind the 'I'm a newbie' label is another way of saying I'm afraid to make mistakes and using this label is an easy way to justify them. You're gonna make mistakes, in fact you're gonna make alot of them. It ain't until you get comfortable with that fact that you will actually start learning from them.

The feedback you'll get will be your greatest and most valuable asset. Why?
Because it will propel you to further growth and if your motives are good, will help tons of other people out there who are looking to get out of the rat race.

The true intention of this post is to motivate you to be yourself online as much you would any other place and to hold yourself in high esteem despite your mistakes regardless of what other people have to say.

Hey, when they're signing the check and paying the bills, they can say whatever they want, but until then, they're either friends or foes.
