Hello from Octoberland
Vol 33. I guess we're here now.
Well, well, well. October finally showed up. Whether your season is pumpkin spice, Hocus Pocus, or apple picking, I think we can all agree autumn is the most superior season, and I for one, can’t wait to soak it all up.
Today I’m checking in on the heels of an amaZing AZA! Thank you to all those who came out yesterday. I love getting candid about affiliate marketing, and you guys bring the most thoughtful questions. I got some really amazing feedback and it means the world to me. I hope you all continue to find value in these sessions! If you missed this one, don’t worry, I’ll be hosting more! Hello plus I’m officially making a course. It’s happening. I’m not teasing, but technically teaZing. You know?
Enough small talk. We’ve got newly published articleZ, newZ and funnieZ to get to. Here we go!
