The 4-Hour Workweek Review – Why I Love And Hate It

Today’s post is titled The 4-Hour Workweek Review and for good reason. I have wanted to write this post for some years now and I finally got down to do it. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

On to my story!

How I Came Upon The 4-Hour Workweek


When I was still in high school(8-9 years ago), one day I was sitting through a really boring “computers and informatics” class(I have talked about this on the welcome page as well).The 4-Hour Workweek Review

What we essentially did during those classes was pretty simple. We either did some boring and purposeless activity with our teacher or just played games on Miniclip.

I don’t want to judge our “informatics” teacher, she was a really well-intentioned woman. But when your teacher slaps the PC to make it work when it is stuck, you know something’s wrong.

Instead of wasting my minutes on Miniclip I decided to check my e-mails(what e-mails does a high school student get?). The self-help junkie that I was, I had recently subscribed to the mailing list of a popular Greek bookshop that occasionally sent suggestions of new self-help books.

And then the fated moment happened :P. I stumbled upon The 4-Hour Workweek. It immediately caught my eye. The claims it was making thrilled me.

Buying Options: I suggest Amazon. You can find the best prices on Kindle or paperback. Alternatively, use the Audible trial that gives you 2 audiobooks for free!

How To Make Your Blog Stand Out From The Rest

If you are here to learn how to make your blog stand out from the rest then listen up!ProBlogger Book

Eight years ago I picked up the ProBlogger book by Darren Rowse(really famous blogger over at ProBlogger.com, in case you are not familiar).

==>Get your copy of the ProBlogger book over at Amazon<==

I thought I had embarked on the most exciting and breakthrough activity ever, blogging!

Back then, I believed that successful bloggers and internet marketers were a secret society of super-achieving individuals that did what everyone else was dreaming about.

Or couldn’t even dream about!

I believed they had cracked the codes of reality and were living an elite digital lifestyle that I wanted more than anything.

And you know what? They actually were.

These people were really innovating and when they had something to say all of us would flock to listen.

Fast forward ten years later. Continue reading →

In a glance: Affilorama is a legit platform for someone to learn about affiliate marketing with useful free lessons. The AffiloBlueprint seems to be a quality step-by-step course that helps someone build successful affiliate marketing websites. AffilloJetpack is their premium course that I didn’t particularly like due to the ready-made vibe that it has. All in all, a quality platform with my main criticisms being a focus on backlinks and PLR content, many upsells, a somewhat inactive community and Mark Ling’s promotional e-mails.

Today I’m gonna try to answer a question that nagged me for quite some time. Is Affilorama worth the money?

When starting out in internet marketing, I scoured the web for hours on end about ways to make money online. As a result, I came across many different programs and courses that promised me Is Affilorama Worth The Moneyriches and supposedly held the secrets to online success. I’m sure you all have!

One of the courses that captured my attention among others was Affilorama by Mark Ling. While I didn’t end up becoming a member(I joined Wealthy Affiliate instead), Affilorama certainly stood out compared to the shitty courses that the internet is full of.

Recently, I came across their website and noticed some changes. This sparked my interest and I decided to become a free member to check the place out. I also researched online for reviews on the premium products that are also offered on the platform.

However, I was disappointed because many of the reviews were outdated and didn’t take into account the changes that have been made on the platform recently. As a result, I chose to delve deeper and compiled the most updated info I could find here.

But first things first… Continue reading →
