He’s churning out no-BS advice, based on his decade of experience in affiliate marketing. Why would he do that? The site will pre-sell his exclusive, one-to-one coaching.

Launch date for the revamped HWA is a couple of months away, but you can already get a taste of the sort of no-nonsense advice John provides here…

Here are some affiliates who ARE doing well…
