Re: I just want money

I envy the people who don't seem to see the need to understand life but just get on with it anyway, whatever their age.

I think most "successful" young people are just doers rather than visionaries.

Just a thought,

True, but remember most of the ways we are making money online now, weren't options 20, 10, or even 5 years ago.



I agree, but I'm talking about becoming your own boss, in general.

Whilst I agree, what's any different with older folks?

Well, as per usual, the MOST successful people are usually a healthy combination of both visionary and doer, and this can occur at any age...

though I've read some interesting information in the past that suggests that the most successful entrepreneurs have maturity and experience, yet also raw ambition and an abundance of energy. According to the article, these factors tend to be a their zenith in one's mid 30's...

Of course, there are many exceptions to this hypothesis, but it is an interesting hypothsis, none-the-less.

Not much. :)

Perhaps one advantage young people have is ignorant naivety...

That's a good thing, in that self-imposed limitations tend to be less. Now that the net has opened up many opportuinities that do not require serious funding, young entrepreneurs have more serious prospects.

Secondly, it's much easier for most people to "risk" starting their own business when they do not have a career to worry about losing, a mortgage to pay or a family to keep.

Older people often have trouble daring to take their experience away from the relative security of employment for these reasons.

Just a thought,
Charlie.

To be successful is to be healthy, only when you get older you realize that.

I also believe that "old" Evil Twisted are more disciplined and willing to work for income, and not expect it to happen overnight because you have a nice place with some of the banners.

30 here as well. Still act like i'm 12. :lol:

It's not a young man's game, young people have more energy, and you need energy to put in the time and work you need to to make money properly online.

One of the advantages of getting older, sometimes you can find the right partner to spend the money. This can make a big enough difference in how good you look and experience of your company.

Hey i am 36 and I think that many younger people are involved in Affiliate marketing. Though middle aged groups are also actively participating as this can provide them an extra income for there living.

I turned twenty a few days ago. Taking a look at other people two times my age, I feel proud of myself to know what I do know now then to must wait as two times as long to seek out my dreams of becoming my own boss.

Eligibility for an affiliate programs cannot be determined by age. Any age people can get into the affiliate program business. The only things you required are great communication skills, good contacts and ability to convince a customer.
