This is a guest post by Lena Morrish and Dima Nikolayenko, publishers of InternetBusinessBTS.com. After years of 9-5 jobs, they started a small family business and accidentally learned about Internet Business and fell in love with it. Now they make money from home working online, around their family. There is nothing that makes them happier than to work at home together, while watching their child grow!

Most of us intuitively assume that the reason for which we desire to have our own business is only for monetary benefits. While this may be true to some extent, it is definitely not entirely so, as we humans are not always commercially driven. Somewhere, deep within us, there is the human emotional element that always pops up and eventually determines our actions and thoughts.
So, when you get down to thinking about how to start an Internet based business, what you are really thinking is how to make yourself happier.
How Difficult Is The Choice Between Being Rich And Being Happy?
If one were to conjure up a business that best showcases the human emotional complexities, it would perhaps be an Affiliate Marketing business. After all, it is a business which, the more you get involved in, the more you aspire to perform well out of the mental satisfaction that it gives you, rather than just about the cash registers that start jingling with it.
Reflecting deeply, Affiliate Marketing is one business that can give you an ideal blend of both money and happiness. That is the reason it is so immensely satisfying for those who are in to the business, that they simply cannot have enough of it!
Choices Galore To Be Made
Learning affiliate marketing and getting into the business requires sufficient choices to be made. For instance, one is that of your personal value systems that a website that you are an affiliate for, may not be in sync with. If for example, you are ardently against any form of wagering, yet happen to be an Affiliate Marketer for an online casino, that is a difficult choice you are having to make, between either going by your personal beliefs (and so listening to your heart) or going by what logic and reason tell you to do (implying listening to what your mind has to say).
Moving on to some of the other choices that have to be made, they include that of whether to build one’s own website or have someone else to do it for you. Thankfully, the emergence of numerous software packages has allowed the former option truly viable, which is what I eventually opted for anyway.
Two other important decisions required to be made included getting the most appropriate and high quality web hosting as well as marketing truthfully and honestly. Thankfully, the former decision was easily taken as the chosen software package included a brilliant hosting plan. As for the latter, I continue to always listen to my heart – which tells me to always tell people the truth, and that is why, I never make any false claims anywhere, including on my website.
So, Am I Happy Now?
You bet! I couldn’t have been a more happier Affiliate Marketer than I am now as I have all that I could have possibly asked for – giving me income through a channel that helps me maintain my work life balance, while also adhering to my moral standards. Could I have asked for more?
Yes, none of it has come very easy to me, but what in life does?
