Entrepreneurs have never been more easily defined in an industry then the affiliate marketing/blogging world. That's because you are able to quickly identify the people that are serious about building their own business. The want-to-be entrepreneurs who dabble for a while often throw the towel in way too early, thinking that they don't have what it takes without even getting started.
Because of the relatively short lifetime of affiliate marketing and blogging, there are few “real” mega success stories, and even more interesting is the amount of serial entrepreneurs in this industry being almost zero.
Many people who fail or are close to failure often say that they came to the party to late. That happens in every industry where you find failure. This is an easy excuse to walk away and justify quitting when you're too embarrassed for the real reason of failing.
This industry gives you an opportunity to be a celebrity in the online world, simply by being you. It doesn't matter how good you look, how polished you are, what you've succeeded at doing and what you've failed at.
Ironically, in this business, most people that fail do so with no investment and no real loss other than time thinking about doing something that they didn't do! What an affordable way to find out you're not an entrepreneur.
On the other hand, if you've got what it takes to be an entrepreneur, you've got a business that has such a low barrier to entry; you'll surely discover your talent quickly. What a great way to see if you're really capable of being an entrepreneur!
