If success in the online business world is what you’re looking for, you need education or experience, the ability to work with others when needed and the right tools. Let’s go through the basic tools that are “must haves.”
When working with affiliate marketing, you need to be able to understand and pick the right software to fit your needs. There are tons out there (believe me, I’ve started looking and informing myself already) but sometimes it’s just overwhelming. You can’t really rely on word of mouth for these things, or reviews, because each one will fit you differently. Only you can decide what is right for you.
One of the major features of the Wordpress blogging platform that makes it as a widely used and very popular CMS is its simplicity and functionality. Even sweeter is the fact that Wordpress has a very distinct feature that extends what it can do – plugins.
For the past several years Wordpress has amassed a large database of plugins which covers many things, from a simple traffic analytics to the creation of periodic newsletters and more. Well, plugins aren’t just for blogs anymore.

It’s been a while since I posted and updated you about my life. For the past year or so I have been living in Seattle and most recently, I just bought a place at [Olive 8](http://www.olive8.com) by Hyatt. I know the name of the building name sounds weird, but it’s that way because it is a hotel.
Here are some pictures of what it looks like:
In addition to the pictures above, the hotel offers me (as a condo owner) a lot of cool amenities, such as valet parking (I am bad at parking), room service (I hate cooking), maid service (I don’t know how to clean), and use of their state of the art gym.
I know you are probably wondering how I could afford such a nice place… well there are 2 main reasons:
* Olive 8 has some great deals. So if you want to live there with me, [Andy](http://www.inspiredstartup.com) and a few other awesome .com guys, you should hit them up.
* I have some great sponsors. Without them, I would have never been able to pimp out my place. They paid for everything from my bedroom furniture to my bathroom TV.
And for those of you who are wondering who sponsored my place, well it was these 14 great companies: [Online Poker](http://www.onlinepoker.org), [Nerdy Shirts](http://nerdyshirts.com), [Shoemoney Capital](http://www.shoemoney.com), [Revenue Enhancement Group](http://revenuegrp.com), [Train Signal](http://www.trainsignal.com/), [Chitika](http://www.chitika.com), [Get Ads](http://www.getads.com), [Globalizer Network](http://globalizer.com/), [Device Doctor](http://www.devicedoctor.com/), [Driver Library](http://www.driverlibrary.org/), [Buddy TV](http://www.buddytv.com), [John Chow](http://www.johnchow.com), [Five Q Enterprises](http://fiveqenterprises.com/), [Big Door Media](http://www.bigdoormedia.com).
