About The Barefoot Affiliate. Giving Up A life of Quiet Desperation.

About the bare foot affiliate, aka Michael Dubhthaigh

Welcome. At the moment this Covid thing is confusing and frustrating the hell out of many of us, maybe all of us!. But hey, what can we do?

Well, try to keep positive is one thing, but probably easier said than done for many.

For me? Well I am not planning on going back to doing what I was doing pre Covid. 12 hr days. 10 on 4 off, sometimes travelling on 2 of those days off.

Sure it paid well, but the down times could be very down.

Times are changing, Like many people, I don’t know what the world will be like at the end of all this, and it is hard to be optimistic when there is so much uncertainty around.

Many people are smiling (with worried looks ), because governments are handing out money.

Small business’s in Australia is looking at the fine print before applying for any handouts.

A massive regulatory system regarding employees entitlements, Leasing agreements, insurances, union agreements, government regulations, would probably have many small business owners just throw their arms up in the air, shut the doors and go down an register for unemployment.

Many have mortgaged the house to start a business, so, they are moving between a rock and a hard place.

Also, Yelp, that American company publishing crowd sourced business reviews, says, more than 60% of business’s that have closed due to the “pandemic” will never return.

There are alternatives though

There is great potential to earn an online income, and the most efficient way to do this is by having a blog. 

Yeah I know, you have heard it all before!

But it is True.

Whats the saying ? Hindsight is 20 / 20 vision.

I wrote this over 12 months ago also.

Last year I wrote this post on my blog and it is looking very real at this time.

Most days I have lunch with a remote worker who has had pay day’s all the way through this isolation / lockdown.

For him life goes on as normal. His income still moves in circles, it pays for small renovations or new furniture. Sadly for so many those options have disappeared.

The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago. The next best time is now.

If you want things to improve in your life, less monetary stress, more choice of lifestyle and better work / family balance, then why not see what Wealthy Affiliate can do for you?

I will leave you with another saying….

Nothing happens unless we do something. Click Here.

All the best to you.

  1. Wow what a great article you have here on your website, I really enjoyed reading this and hearing about all the challenges you had to overcome and how you were able to pick yourself back up. Wealthy Affiliate is a great site and after reading this I will not be surprised by how many people decide to sign. This article explains everything perfectly as well and has the links incorporated as well to help those visiting find the right places to look. Best of luck to you, I can’t wait to see the future posts here on your website.

  2. Dear Michael,
    You have an awesome website and a very profitable content. I wish I could design my website as professional looks the way you design your website. Promoting Wealthy Affiliate is a very good topic because I myself is learning a lot the way the training in the modules is presented by Kyle. Good luck and I wish you success in your wealthy affiliate promotions.

  3. What a good article. Gee, maybe I should join Wealthy Affiliate. Just kidding. I am, after all, HERE. I liked the article and info. Looks like you followed the training. Nicely separated paragraphs, etc. I am totally new. In training, so, have very little to comment. But best wishes

  4. I actually dropped out of college to focus on creating a full-time income from home. I work full-time, and even once my site is earning an income I’m happy with, I probably won’t quit my day job, but to my parents an education is super important.

    Wanna know the funny part? I was going to college for creative writing because I want to be an author! Now, while blogging isn’t exactly a horror novel I wanna write, it made me realize that having success with anything takes risks. I think it’s safe to say we’ve both taken risks and I can see that things are starting to pay off for you, I only hope I’ll begin to see the same success as you have.

    • Hi Aria,
      I don’t understand your dilemma, And I guess no man ever will, it is just something we learn to live with.:-)

  5. Hello Micheal,
    Great article and thank you for your inspiring story on how you got into an online business. Of course, there is nothing better than having your own online business, something you like to do, obviously will be a good source of income if you keep working on it and putting more time. I called it a secure asset for us and our kids in the future.

  8. Hi Michael……..What a fantastic article going through your personal struggles which I can identify with, by the way! And, you finally finding Wealthy Affiliate and what it’s done for you is truly a success story. You’ve got my attention, and when I can tie my better-half done long enough, we’ll be back to dig deeper into your recommendation. I read your article some time back and sorry for being so late in commenting. Thanks.

    • Thank you for your comment Terry. Wealthy Affiliate has been good for me. Certainly the best online community I have ever been involved with.
      It is an awesome opportunity for anyone, to take up the challenge and be the best they can.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I believe that could resonate with a lot of your readers.

    Sometimes coming from necessity is what brings us to do something new. Personally it was thinking about our retirement that got me started with affiliate marketing.

    Wealthy Affiliate was the best decision I ever made. After trying different products and feeling let down I came across someone’s review. They are wonderful. And it works!!
