I have 11 co-sponsored affiliates and 2 personally sponsored affiliates. however, none among them is active meaning they are of no use. At times, such things can be very upsetting.
However, it has also to keep in mind that all that glitters are not gold. I mean to say that all affiliates will not be active, that is impossible. May be one keep on getting 5 or 10 or 25 or 50 or even hundreds of affiliates and most of them will be, as a matter of fact, inactive ones. But 1 or 2 among them will be active and that 1 or 2 can change your business abruptly.
So, never get upset. Keep your head and hope high. Know in your mind that slow but steady wins the race and keep on investing time and, as said earlier, a little bit of money, and success is bound to come.
