Testimonial to Pat!
Below is a photo from back in 2011 of me with my first affiliate check from Bluehost.com. Pat's podcasts and site taught me how to promote products on my blog. So, for everyone who clicks on the links in the post and purchases a book or service like Bluehost, I get a commission. Not a bad deal. In fact, Pat makes between $20,000-$30,000 / month just by recommending Bluehost. Think Entrepreneurship.com is hosted by Bluehost, so I use the product and believe in it.
