I got deal of the day for it yesterday on the 29th, and have made close to $13,000 in revenue (about half of it mine after paying affiliates and what not).
I had signed up for a partnership program with a big guy on WarriorPlus. I created the product and sales pages, and he promoted my product to his list, which started the chain reaction.
A lot of my success is due to my mentor, and affiliates. Without them, none of this would be possible.
I now also have a hot buyers list to promote quality products to, get them on webinars, etc.
I got lucky that I was on this guy's e-mail list, since he sent an e-mail to his subscribers saying if they wanted a partnership opportunity (I paid his fee, did the work, and rest is history). If I wasn't on his list, then who knows where I'd still be to this day.
My point is, never give up on your dreams. If you want something bad enough, constantly think about it day in and day out, fight for it, IT will happen. I fought hard for it almost all of last year, and then luck struck me by leading me to where I am now.
