I was unable to get employment for a long time, so I decided to go back to school and learn a new trade.
Amazingly, since I was unemployed, I qualified for another program that paid my tuition for the entire course for the years training.

What exactly is Affiliate Marketing?
To summarize; it starts with your own website and professional Hosting Platform.
Once you make your Website go Live, you start to write about the specific market that you are interested in.
You choose a niche, or specific part of the market that you are passionate about and have a lot of knowledge in.
If your interests are fishing, then you start telling the world all about fishing gear, how to fish, and what kind of boats you recommend.
Then you find companies that sell those boats and fishing gear and sign up with them as an affiliate.
Once they accept you into their affiliate program they give you a commission every time you make a sale for them from your website.
It is clean, simple, and eventually becomes almost automatic!
Imagine waking up whenever you want because you fired your boss a couple years ago. You walk over to your computer with your morning coffee in hand and turn it on.
Much to your delight you see a few sales had come in while you were sleeping!
You think to yourself, man, this is the life.
Then you remember that job that you used to have to drive to five days a week, that 25 mile one way commute!
You remember your boss always pointing that long, bony finger at you!
Man, you think, I must have been CRAZY! No, you just were caught up in the nine to five grind, working for the man.
