In this time of social distancing, financial hardships, and so many employees being furloughed, I'm hearing a lot of talk about how, especially as a Kajabi expert and partner, I should be encouraging people to start their own businesses. With an all-in-one business platform like Kajabi, they can start a side hustle now for future security (should things get worse) or maybe they need to jump right into full-time self-employment.

As much as I want to get behind all of this, I do have some reservations and this is why: There are clearly a lot of myths about working from home and about home-based business ownership.

The Story Behind B-School Affiliates

Marie has hand-selected B School alums to be her affiliates which means they promote B School and she pays them a (cough cough pretty hefty cough cough) commission for each sale. Okay, let's be real: They get 50% of the $1,999 sign-up fee.
