Humans inherently hate to use checklists.
It reminds me of those TV shows where men would take road trips and refuse to use maps or ask for directions. They’d get lost of course, and end up getting into a pointless adventure.
Why would they be so stubborn? I think it’s because of how simple some tools are, that using them feels like they’re insulting our memory.
Wouldn’t you agree that making money would be a lot easier if you didn’t have to deal with competition?
There are two major ways to make money. The first one is to compete based on price (such as being the cheapest). But competing on price can be dangerous… what if someone were to undercut you overnight? There’s no reward if you’re the 2nd cheapest in the market.
The most important stage in an affiliate campaign is optimizing.

1. You launch
2. Probably lose some money while you collect conversion data.
3. Then based on the data, you start optimizing (you run different tests)
One of the best perks of being in this industry is the travel!
You: “Uhhh I gotta travel again to a conference”
Significant Other: “Where to?”

Significant Other: Why does your industry seem like a non-stop bachelor party.
