If you aren't making money or you aren't making as much as you'd like, why would you even think about trashing an ezine that might contain an article, tip, trick or unannounced freebie that may be the missing piece of the puzzle you need?
Every good business person knows you must invest in education to increase your income. When you are first starting your business, this investment is usually time looking for free stuff because your budget doesn't include buying educational courses, ebooks or attending seminars.
As your income grows, your need to attend live seminars, buy the higher quality courses and network with your peers should increase as well. Expanding your knowledge is vital to your you being able to expand your income and expanding your relationships with others working within your field is an intangible that will help both you and your business.
