      YES. I’m loving this!

      I’m making $4k-$8k per month from my Amazon books and consulting (on top of my 6-fig IT job) and Adams story is so dang motivating!

      • Adam Enfroy

        Raza! I’m so glad you found my story motivating. Making the kind of money you’re making every month from your Amazon sales and consulting (on top of your IT job) is incredible man. I sent you an email and let’s stay connected. I’d love to learn from each other more in the coming years. Thanks again and keep killing it.

        Raza! So glad you found this episode motivating. And the work you’re doing with your Amazon book sales and consulting (on top of your day job) is incredible. You’re in the 0.01% my man. I emailed you and it sounds like we share a similar story. Let’s stay in touch over the coming years – I think there’s a lot we can learn from each other.

      Adam is the most inspiring affiliate manager turned affiliate I’ve ever seen. What an incredible story! So excited about working with you guys in the future. Keep killing it in the space fellas!

      • Adam Enfroy

        Dustin, you are one of the best minds in affiliate marketing and I learned a ton from you over the last year my bearded brother. Thanks so much for sharing all of your knowledge and helping so many Affiliate Managers (myself included) in the space with your online courses and consulting work. Happy to call you a friend and very much looking forward to working with you more in the future too. 🙂

      Hey Raza, I never knew that before! How are you making $4K – 8K per month just by Amazon books? Can you guide/explain? I am a book lover. I read loads of books. Figures are very interesting though so as books! 😊
      Sure, Adam Enfroy made ME his fan too! 😄

    • Oseremen

      This is an awesome feat. What a lot of bloggers cannot achieve in 3 years, Adam crushed it in 90 days. He is a true marketer!

    • John

      What an inspiring story ! Haven’t had my own break through though. I have created my own blog but yet to kick start with any income. It is all not lost yet, still hustling.

      I love the fact that everyone here is connecing with likeminds on the topic of affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is my thing too. I’ve struggled with it over the years, but the good news about it is I know as an iron-clad fact that it’s surely more stable than a traditional day job if you apply yourself wholeheartedly to it. Anyone can achieve “side hustle millionaire” status from it if they stay the course by creating “lots and lots of content” for their blog or website, in addition to running PPC ads for affiliate links.

      Bloggers and internet marketers are silent rockstars because we’re just as big as U.S. politicians! 🙂
