these items. You are not an exclusive dealer. Just like an
But unlike an affiliate, you have to do everything in your power
to make people come to your store and buy from you instead of
going to another store that sells exactly same products.
Why? Because, if you don't make sale then there's absolutely
nothing in it for you. Not to mention cost of running a
business which in offline world can be a nightmare.

excellent way of earning and learning at same time.
