About the Barefoot Affiliate

Welcome fellow Entrepreneur.

  • Work from home resources
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Dropshipping
  • Self Improvement
  • SEO

The mission here is to help solo entrepreneurs find the best work from home opportunities on line or off.

If your looking for a niche to promote, the amount of choice available is almost overwhelming.

There is no way I could possibly review them all, nor do I intend to.

You need to make informed decisions when it comes to investing your money in your personal endeavors.

I have tried most of the ones I write about, with the exception of MLM’s.

The reviews are meant to be unbiased 3rd party reviews. In full transparency this site is affiliated with Wealthy Affiliate, an online affiliate education company for intending entrepreneurs wanting to ditch the 9-5.

But affiliate marketing is not the be all, end all of online business’s. The fact is, it is not suitable for everyone. Far from it.

To be totally honest, it is not my first option for earning online ( I like the SEO part of it). Sure it is easier to start, and I make some money from it.

Many people do very well with it, way better than me.


I still get satisfaction producing something with my hands, and selling it.

So, I am good at one and mediocre at the other. Still, I enjoy doing reviews and offering an opinion.

My first forays into earning online was selling stuff on E-Bay.

In this site you will see names like Artfire, Etsy, Salehoo, Alidropship, Shopify, World wide Brands, WooCommerce etc scattered throughout the articles. I have always done well with them. I see no reason why you can’t either.

Build a store, get some sales and flip it.

Occasionally I veer off into Self improvement. It is an interest of mine, if your into that (why shouldn’t you be?), there will be courses reviewed.

Some of the links in here are affiliate links and I will receive a commission (at no additional cost to you), if you buy something. ( Put it this way, a $10 or $20 commission is not going to change my lifestyle).


At the moment this Covid thing is confusing and frustrating the hell out of many of us, maybe all of us!

But, what can we do? Economic policy is now based on medical advice, and this has fundamentally changed the world’s economies, possibly for decades to come.

Trying to keep positive, is probably easier said than done for many.

Certainly it has been that way for me, I like travel and adventure. These days I am basically locked in one country thousands of miles away from my home.

Still that is an adventure, and I will get to know this country very well, it may even become a second home.

Earning Online Choices

For those struggling, the temptation to dive into something that promises a lot, is greater when you are feeling lost and looking for a solution to your problem(s).

Unfortunately many of those promises don’t work out and nor were they designed to help you.

In other words they were scams.

So be careful with your online choices. There are many “work from home” “ditch the 9-5” programs out there.

My reviews are about reality.


If you dream about starting an online business, hopefully the ones I have reviewed favorably give you the encouragement to dive in, and make an effort to improve your finances and life options.
