Well, the dot com bubble may have burst, but that does not mean that you can’t make money. People just recognize now that it does take patience and effort.
It also takes information, and education. Running your own business, even if you are selling other people’s products as an affiliate (in other words, for a share of their revenue) does require certain skills and discipline.
For example, you need to do research on markets, choose products which you think will sell, set up a website, and keep track of expenses at all times, since you will need to manage the books for your new business. You will have to set a budget, pay hosting fees and so on.
Up to 75% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years. It would be sad to think of you wasting all that time and effort because you leaped before you looked.
However, having said that, there are people who have gone before, who can help teach you, even mentor you, if you feel a burning desire to go into business for yourself.

SEO is one of the first steps you will take when building your empire, because every single page on your website has the potential to become a homepage which will lure traffic to see what you have to say, or sell. Keep SEO in mind when you are first putting together the copy for your website.
