How should you organize your online business?
Affiliate marketing seems to make sense, its easy and low cost to start, and you can be up and running within a few days - but struggle is how to get traffic and make my offer different than all others?
On other hand, creating your own product is what you may really want to do, if not for being so unsure about what topic to write about and finding time in your busy life to get started?
Let me share two important true facts with you about choosing between affiliate marketing and producing/marketing your own products.

Steve focused on opening doors to writing books to everday NON-writer. Simple techniques that anyone can use to put their ideas into print.
Steve offers his own product, but also occassionally offers affiliate products that he feels make sense for his audience.
