    My all time favorite comment is  ‘you don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great. The road to success as often not been an easy one and one of the major hindrance as always been reluctance. Before you come across any other challenges or obstacles,it’s first your fears to start and that has often killed so many dreams. I used to have the fears of taking on the online affliate marketing business but I got over it and I’m glad I did. Thanks for those powerful quotes. 

    • Etah

      It’s my pleasure sharing, Seyi.

      I agree with you, reluctance to start is really a dream killer.

      I can relate to you on your reluctance to start affiliate marketing and even when I started, I felt very reluctant in taking any action which took me out of my comfort zone.

      Thanks for visiting my site and all the best on your online business journey.

  • John Deese

    Nice header fonts for the title of the website. Thing is though, I would consider removing the highlight from the background of the small text and go with a character shadow type Is your looking for a shade feature to their characters.

    I would consider a more elaborate type of theme and lose the sidebar content. I personally see sidebars as a distraction and takes away from the body of your page content. Speaking of which I would consider removing some of the content as it is way too long for many visitors to want to scroll through the page bottom.

    To solve this problem you can add some Carousel throughout the homepage to feature the content you have there, making the page shorter. Honestly, your front (Home) page, should be only what your website is about and what it has to offer. It appears to be a news feed set up on that front page.

    Also, I would consider removing the affiliate link disclosure at the top of the pages and place in a footer in the home page or about page. Having that at the top of the pages will scare visitors in seeing you as just an affiliate marketer and not pay attention to your true skills sets as a motivational artist.

    Please do connect with me if you like more assistance.

    Thanks for such a brilliant post, this is clearly a motivational post,i start by saying the greatest enemy of progress is your last success.

It’s more than just reading it but to start by starting. These numbers of quotes will be so useful for me by reading and putting them in action. It’s resourceful. Best regards

    • Etah

      I really agree with you, when we get comfortable in our already achieved success we get less willing to work for any change.

      In my country we have a common saying “on ne change pas l’equipe qui gagne ” which means, we don’t change the winning team. This philosophy, unfortunately, is adopted by many and leads to little or no progress.

      I love your favorite and it is something I always try to remind myself of during stuff time.

      Thanks for visiting my site and best regards to you too.
