About the Barefoot Affiliate

Welcome fellow Entrepreneur.

Having a single income sucks.

The one income life is a terrible life. Worse is no income.

This site is all about solutions, some you may like, others you might think suck.

But, we have to start somewhere. Working hard all the time will only keep you poor.

Starting a side hustle doing something you like, is the best way of generating small income streams, that build into something bigger is the way to get a better life.

Don’t get me wrong, some people love their jobs and would happily work for nothing. Perhaps even drink arsenic if they were told they had to do it, to keep doing their job.

As Robert Kiyosaki said in his book Rich Dad Poor Dad, “The poor and middle class work for money, the rich have money work for them.”

The best way to move out of working to pay bills, is to start a side hustle, in the beginning the benefits will be small, you may earn enough to buy the kids a treat, or get a new set of tyres for your car.

But those are benefits that start the ball rolling. You didn’t have to put the tyres on the “never never” and pay them off at 18% interest.

If you invest your side hustle money into financial instruments that return a dividend, you are on your way to living life on your terms.

The mission of this site is to help entrepreneurs find the best starting opportunities for earning online or offline.

These are opportunities for you to build and grow, even sell your side hustle (as many people do), and move onto bigger and better things.

In this site there are reviews on

  • Work from home resources for earning online or offline.
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Dropshipping
  • Self Improvement
  • SEO to help get you positioned to prosper.

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. Many articles on this include some personal experience.

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

Hopefully the reviews are of interest to you.

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

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.

The reason I chose to become a member of Wealthy Affiliate is because it has other areas of learning besides affiliate marketing.

Building websites for local business’s, creating courses, the WA community is off the planet, there is just much help there.

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 generally 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.

If ever there was a time to think outside the box now is it.

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.

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.
