If you've been a
subscriber for a while you know that I do NOT inundate
you with e-mails
selling a bunch of stuff. I try to stay very focused on
with fun, informational e-letters that keep you motivated to
eat the RPDD way
and lose weight. Hopefully, I make you laugh once
But today I
became aware of something that I feel I must share with each
It's an opportunity that I've taken advantage of since 2003, and
one that I
believe every family must now consider, given the economic
2008. It's not related to losing weight. But it IS
"real" life, so I
figure you might be interested.
This e-mail isn't
short. I'm going to explain why I feel strongly about
e-mail, and what the opportunity is all about. It's going to
take a few minutes for you to read it, so get a cup of coffee
or water or
like--and please keep reading!
I think recent
events have shown that it's clearly time for each of us to
begin building personal financial security. Yes, we
need to be frugal and save. But we also need to look at ways
of generating income that are NOT

My own husband
suffered a layoff in 2003. It took him 18 months to find
job. We recently learned that many of the top officials in

Their GREED led to very deep financial difficulties for our family,
and we continue
to recover from the effects of the layoff.
One of the best
things I did in the aftermath of our own personal
disaster was to
start an internet business. I was already doing medical
but was limited to working late at night when our young
asleep. I could only make a few hundred dollars a month.
We decided that
we needed income that was passive (not tied directly

on a boss,
company, any one product, etc. We needed income that I

You get the picture.
I began surfing
the internet in 2003 for more information on what was
found a company called Sitesell out of Canada. They had
a product called
"SiteBuildIt!" that was an all-in-one web host, website
online business course. They said they would teach me how
design, build, maintain and market content-based websites
that would result
in growing traffic, growing income and growing financial
So I downloaded a
free course the company founder, Ken Evoy, wrote.
As I studied, I
was impressed by the company's ethics, attitude, and sense of
community. They DIDN'T say I'd get ri^ch quick.
They DID say building a website business would take dedication
and hard work, like any other endeavor.
SBI! even walked
me through the process of brainstorming topics to build
around. I didn't feel like much of an expert on anything, but
turns out we all
have information other people need! Building win-win
what successful businesses are all about.
Now, 5 years
later, I have three websites with SBI!, and have co-authored
(work-at-ho^me-mom) free guide/course. I have generated
supplements my husband's salary and allows me to stay
with the kids--I
can even homeschool successfully. We can take
vacations, pay for dance class and even buy a few gadgets here
and there. Every year my income grows.
Why am I
bothering to tell you all this? Because until midnight
5 SBI! is offering anyone the
opportunity to buy one site and
get another for
free! (Hang on, I'll give you their link so you can peek in
minute...) I just got the reminder in my inbox, since I have
them, and suddenly started thinking about how many
could be changed for the better (just like mine) with an
NOTE: The deadline to the buy-one-get-one special has
obviously passed, but SBI! is still a great deal at its everyday price.
Don't wait to start working on another stream of income.**)
Like I said
before, I just felt very strongly that I should share this,
the economic climate we currently face.
SBI! is already
an incredible value, so this is really a major event. It's
getting a site
50% off. I used this offer to build two websites that are
What would you do
with two sites? Build one, then another, to double
income. You have 9 months to start the second site.
You could also give the second one away to a friend or relative that
as strongly about
financial security as you do. Or, buddy up with someone
and build your
sites together. Compete to see who gets the most traffic
most revenue. Heck, sell it, if you want. Craigslist.com is
great for that.
You don't need to
know anything about building websites to make this

learn. They have tons of tools and services that most website
owners have to
buy separately (and teach themselves to use). If you ARE

shopping carts and blogging software.
SBI! doesn't just
leave you hanging, either. They have biweekly

very active forums for SBI'ers that are like massive,
totally-free help desks for any possible question you might
have when it comes to websites and

"best" way to make money online, from home, that I

you might say. ;-)
and universities are now using SBI! to teach courses
entrepreneurship, like The Citadel in South Carolina. I've
said that what I
learned from SBI! rivalled--if not exceeded--what I
learned during four years of college for a B.S. degree in
Business (ever wonder why it's called a "B.S." degree...?).
I'm sending this
email now so you can think about what I've shared, check

below, and still have a couple days to think about it. I try
not to rush into decisions and neither should you, especially
where money is involved.
