    Thumbs up I can't believe it has almost been 3 years ...
    this September, in a short 6 months will mark my departure from TD and the birth of Andy Rodriguez Consulting....

    Any of you remember this thread made on August 29th, 2003, 01:15 PM ?

    Hello team,

    Just to let you know that it has been a real pleasure and a learning experience working with all of my partners at TigerDirect.

    I have given my 2 week notice today, i will be training and helping to transition over the new person that will be taking over TigerDirect's affiliate program.

    I have learned so much and trully have enjoyed the experience of taking an underperforming program from 80K to over 1.5 MM per month in under 2 years. It is time to move on ....

    I wish all of you and TigerDirect continued success with the program...

    Thank you,

    Andy Rodriguez,
    Online Advertising / Affiliate Marketing Manager

    I'm not feeling too good after my St. Patrick's day celebration, so wait a little for the drinks...

    Congrats, Andy! You did a lot in a short time.

    Congrats on quite a run for three years, Andy. So much can happen in such a short period of time in this business. That is why it is attractive to those who embrace change.

    I am sure your next three years will be filled with producing results for your clients while maintaining your ethics and demonstrating to your clients that the results you show them are real results from value-add affiliates bringing them incremental business.

    Here's to another 3 years, or 10 or 20 years.

    Well, I hope the change is for the best for you and your family. Good luck! If there's anything I can do for you let me know. I was about 2 weeks away from giving up on my site then you sent the email that invited me here. From under $100 per month total income to a few thousand $ a month now and still growing so I owe you that (not the money but a favor ). Good luck my friend, you know how to contact me if you need me.
    You too Greg, have come a long way buddy...

    And it's been one hell of a ride too Who would have thought that one day I'd be working this full time? Well, actually I did but thought it would be on the affiliate side of it and not the manager side of it. I love this biz!

    Thanks Noth and Rexanne. This is a perfect situation to show you that you never how you affect someone's life. It all started with an email from Andy inviting me to ABW and now I'm living my dream. Did I say I love this biz?

    Just occurred to me that since I remember the original thread, I've been reading this board for 3.5 years.

    I know some of you have more time in, but jeez.

    Thanks Loxly... I was asked the same question so many times that I had a no choice but to think about it week after week...

    "who do you work for, us or the affiliates"

    If you wanted to keep your job, there was only one right answer back then ... so I resigned and now I work for both merchants and affiliates and loving life...
