But in this post, I wanted to look at another aspect of affiliate marketing that can seem unimportant or complete nonsense, depending on your point of view.
And that’s how you think about things – your mindset and how it influences your chances of success.
If you’re afraid to invest a couple of grand into yourself and your business, you’ll never become a millionaire.
I have people who message me every day who want to “pick my brain for free”.
Now, I’m happy to help but when I give them advice they will tell me things like:
- ❌ They don’t have money to invest because they’re broke.
- ❌ A course or coaching I recommend is too expensive.
- ❌ They want to do things for free to start and once they make money they will reinvest.
So here is how I reply to each one of these responses…

You Don’t Have Money To Invest Because You’re Broke?
Some people will advise you to beg, borrow or steal the money you need to invest in what they’re selling.
Never do this – never put yourself in debt,
If you don’t have money to invest then get a job, do freelance work and work some extra hours to have money to invest in your business.
There is no such thing as a free business.
Cut out the expenses in your life that aren’t making you a return on your money and put that money into something that can make you a return.
Investing in yourself is the best investment you can make.
I have to ask you, how long do you want to stay broke?
The only way to change your situation is to make sacrifices and be willing to make a different choice than what you’re currently making because your best thinking and choices got you to the exact point you’re at today.
A Course Or Coaching I Recommend Is Too Expensive?
Do you know what the biggest expense you currently have in your life is?
Not knowing how to make money with affiliate marketing – it’s actually a cost to you.
On the low end, if you follow my advice and just get one income stream that can make you 3-5k per month then not knowing how to do that is costing you on the low end $36,000 to $60,000 per year.
Is saving a few thousand really worth losing $36,000 to $60,000 or more per year?
Once again your best thinking is currently keeping you stuck in life.
If you want to get a better life, then learn from someone who has already done what you want to do and helped 100’s of other people do it.
By having a scarcity mindset and being afraid to invest in yourself, you’re actually costing yourself lots of money that you could be otherwise making.
You Want To Do Things For Free?
Do you really want to spend 3-5 years, or even longer, trying to piece things together from free Youtube videos hoping this affiliate marketing thing is going to work out?
Or do you want to get results in the next couple of months?
Time is money!
In fact, time is worth a lot more than money because you can always make more money, but you can’t get any more time.
You’re dying a little bit each day, and every day you waste not getting results is raising the probability you will get frustrated and quit, because you don’t know what to do to get the results.
There is a reason I’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars in my marketing education… because you don’t know what you don’t know.
If building a successful business is truly important to you, then stop being cheap and trying to do everything for free, because it’s a guaranteed plan to never succeed at your goal.
No one is going to help you for free.
You have to pay for people’s knowledge and time and you have to invest in tools, resources, and education to learn how to grow a successful business.
As soon as you kill this “I want it for free” mindset, you will unlock the doors to your new life.
Now, if you’ve read this far, understand this is not a pitch for you to buy something; I just wanted to use this post as a lesson for you just in case you possibly think this way.
It’s not the lack of “how to’s” that keep someone from getting results, it’s their thinking and how they view things.
This is something I grappled with myself.
I thought all this “mindset” stuff some people were teaching was new-age, woo-woo nonsense.
How you think informs every aspect of your life, from how you interact and relate to others to how you run and build a business.
If you’re not willing to invest money into a business and you’re not willing to buy products, then how can you logically expect other people to spend money with you?
You’re simply not practicing what you’re preaching and people will see through you.
If you think about this, it makes no logical sense to work this way because you will only get and attract what you are.
So, if you won’t invest money, then you will attract people who will not invest money, because your belief systems and what you put out into the world aren’t aligned.
You can only get what you do and believe.
So, if you won’t invest money, you will not be able to make money.
If you don’t believe it’s possible to create your dream life then you will get exactly that.
If you think you’re doomed to always have debt and make very little money, then your actions will stop you from doing what is necessary because your belief system is telling you this is a waste of time.
Fix your thinking and you fix your life…PERIOD!
When you invest in yourself and learn high-income skills you can legally print money.
This is why if you’re not investing in yourself and you’re not learning from a mentor, you want to find one fast because trying to do things on the cheap will prolong your lack of success far longer than necessary.
All the best,
