    JUMP IN - Let's have some FUN!!! :p

    <img src="http://lazyway.blogs.com/Fred%20in%20Hammock%202.jpg" alt="lazy success"align="left" hspace="10" </a/>I just discovered a new blog called "<a target="_new" href="http://lazyway.blogs.com/lazy_way/2006/06/top_10_signs_yo.html">The Lazy Way to Success</a>" by Fred Gratzon. He blogged this week about the top signs that prove you are made to be an entrepreneur. Since affiliates ARE entrepreneurs, they have lots in common. Here are a few of the points I got a chuckle from as I read his blog - <strong>swapping the word affiliates in place of entrepreneurs. </strong>

    <blockquote><a href="http://lazyway.blogs.com/lazy_way/2006/06/top_10_signs_yo.html"><strong>Top 10 Signs You're Made to be an AFFILIATE</strong></a>

    10. You are unemployable. You can?t hold a job. You don?t want to hold a job. And you react to getting a job the same way a cat reacts when you try to give it a bath.

    7. You are always looking for and/or seeing economic opportunity everywhere and in everything. While at a concert, you occupy yourself by estimating the evening?s take and its gross margins instead of listening to the music.

    5. You would enthusiastically trade a life-time pass to Disneyland for one ride in the Vomit Comet. <strong>In other words, you would give up a secure, even-keeled, bland existence for a life that whipsaws uncontrollably between exhilaration and terror.</strong></blockquote>
    Well I think #5 sums it up for lots of affiliates. If it ain't parasites or non-tracking merchants, it's LMI or something else that makes the life of an affiliate feel like a rollercoaster ride!


    Make up a funny tell tale sign that "you were JUST MADE to be an affiliate!"
    :eek: :) :p :D

    Hi Julia,

    You poor thing! Tell him entrepreneurs are such dreamers!
