I started Affiliate Marketing about 3 years ago. When I addressed my sister about what I was doing, she insisted that I was being scammed by the program that I joined. To this day, she tells people that what I do is stupid, I am wasting my time, and that I make no money.
The funny thing is, we NEVER talk about what it is I do (she doesn't want to hear anything about it) or how much money I have made.
I have three websites now that I have built from the ground up and she won't even visit them.
