    Should Todd Quit CJ and become an Affiliate?
    Todd has to put up with a lot of bad-mouthing in his role as a liason between CJ and CJ's affiliates on this board. Personally, I wouldn't want the job.

    So just for fun, I was wondering what advice you would give Todd if you were discussing his job with him.

    Stick with the job.

    Be free of the mess and become an affiliate marketer like us.

    I'd give him the same advice as I would give anyone, who had *any* (horrors) J*B (/horrors):

    QUIT!!!

    Jump ship and be an affiliate marketer! Save yourself from empl*yment!

    Just imagine the mess we would be in as affiliates if all the good guys at the networks and all the good affiliate managers quit to become affiliates...

    Todd is one of the good guys. Although I'm sure he would do wonderful as an affiliate, I would much rather he stay at CJ.

    Well...the poll asked what I'd advise *him* to do, not what was most strategic for us...

    Of course, what's most strategic for US, is that everybody else go get a job so that there's not only less competition in the arena, but so that there's more buyers who don't have their own sites to buy from.

    Todd is indeed one of the good guys - I really appreciate who he is and he does.

    Stick with the Job.

    Todd is making so much money he would have to be insane to give it up. He probably gets 10% or more plus company stock and benefits.

    Somehow, I doubt it's as much as he deserves.

    Billy, I know that Todd makes good, no very good change, but with the median price of homes in Santa Barbara reaching $980,000. If he's a home owner he's got serious creative financing. For those that don't know the area, a typical tract home that sold in 1960 for 19,500 is now selling $750,000 and up. Those are starter homes!

    Better stick with the day job Todd, your livin high on the hog up there.

    True!!! LOL! I was thinking he would just make a competing program!

    Somehow, I just don't see Todd making it on what he expects us to make it on.

    I certainly doubt he could do as well as Leader or many of the others doing it the right way. Don't think he has what it takes. But, that is just my opinion.

    He best keep his day job.

    I'd take Todd and Gordo both for a ride, and water skiing, on my 34' Cherokee "Renegade 340". That would be a video well worth distributing on the Net. Now he needs to keep the job and just figure out how to keep cutting checks to the loyal base of affiliates by protecting their rightful share.

    If Todd is going to be an affiliate, who is going to take care of us, CJ's affiliates?

    Todd is the only one who comes in and gets the message across to CJ from us, gets things moving and tells us what is going on once they have figured that out the bugs themselves.

    For our sakes, I hope he stays with his job.

    For CJ's sake, I hope CJ pays him so well, he would never dream of leaving his job.

    For Todd's sake, I hope he gets a good therapist to help him deal with the stress of that job. No joke being CJ's liaison handling a whole bunch of really angry affiliates.

    Hey, Todd imagine affiliates weighing in on what you should with your life. I can't resist throwing in my 2 cents also. I didn't vote for either choice because I'd advise you what I'd advise anyone.....shoot for RETIREMENT as soon as you can and really enjoy life!

    Todd doesn't live in Santa Barbara.

    With all the rain we've had in Southern California his commute must be HELL.

    My guess is that Todd will fund the "Safe Haven Network"

    Adam,

    Whether he lives in Carpindiarhea or even further south in VC. It's not a cheap live anywhere near there.

    I figure my Dad's old 21 acre ranch in Goleta on Fairview Ave must be worth several million dollars as it's still undeveloped but surrounded by tons of houses. I can see the developers chompin at the bit for that land.

    Far cry from the agricultural beauty of the past. Damn dad sold it in 72 for chump change. Well that's life.
