About the bare foot affiliate, aka Michael Dubhthaigh

Welcome fellow Entrepreneur.

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 has fundamentally changed the world’s economies, possibly for decades to come.

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

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.


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.

Please read on…

What’s the saying ? Hindsight is 20 / 20 vision.

I wrote this over 12 months ago

Some 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 resources for home schooling his kids. Sadly for so many those options have disappeared.

Some people are making good 6 figure incomes working from home. Web design and development is worth $40 billion just in the USA alone.

Writing about home brewing brings in a six figure income for one blogger. Another does videos on Search Engine Optimization

Another writes about chickens and earns enough to repair her home which was damaged in an earthquake in Italy.

There is a saying… 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, have less monetary stress, more choice of lifestyle and better work / family balance. This is probably as good an opportunity as you will ever get to build a barrier between yourself and bureaucrats, who like to make decisions on your behalf.

But !, there are a lot of scams infesting the internet, with help from other researchers, we look at MLM, Cyprto and Affiliate marketing. All have their nuances.

We review them and make a judgement. Ours is usually a contrarian point of view.

Unfortunately, in our opinion, not many show much promise.

You may not agree with all our findings, and if that is the case with you, feel free to tell us in the comments.

All the best to you.
