As I was writing my "About" page it dawned on me that I was leaving out a very important part of the story.
At a deep level I am something of a sceptic, it goes against my nature to accept things at face value, I just have to investigate and understand stuff before I accept and make a decision or a choice.
I knew, in my core, that it was time to get out of the main Stream, to start doing some of the other stuff that was on my "bucket list".
One of those things was to live at the coast
Which we do now, that's Elmarie just after sun-up enjoying the view.
The next was to travel our beautiful country, South Africa, which is in the planning stages right now and hopefully soon you will see that story come alive right here on the internet.
Sorry, I got a bit lost there for a moment, what I was trying to tell you is how it came to be that we could change our lifestyle so completely that we could give up our day jobs and come to live in a sub tropical climate on the East Coast of South Africa in what could only be described as a village.
Remember a little earlier I spoke about being a sceptic well, I knew we wanted to share our knowledge about energy healing and I was convinced that the best way to do this would be over the internet but what I could not settle on was the how.
I investigated, read, bought books from people claiming that it was easy as... Let me promise you there is no such thing as easy but there is a way and eventually, after months, the universe in its wisdom revealed it - SBI
My skepticisms had not changed so I started looking deeply into what they had to offer, by this time I was a little wiser and I already knew there was much more to creating a successful internet based business that just a web page or two.
No matter how hard I scratched them they had the answer, from unlimited bandwidth to every tool I knew about and a whole lot that I had yet to learn, all built in and at no extra cost.
This was almost to good to believe so I had a look at what others, like myself, who wanted independence and more from life had done before me, they really rocked my boat!
I originally found this page from which I have taken some quotes below.
"I now have a business that I can grow over the years. A business that is fun. I'll never do a 9 to 5. I'll always own my own life. That, more than money, more than learning about the Web, more than anguilla-beaches, more than learning how to write well, that is the most important thing I've learned from SBI!. Own your own life. If you don't, what's the point?"
"What can I say? Life has never been better. Freedom is something that can't be paid for. It's not that I work less, I probably work more than I ever did, but I do it on my own terms. It doesn't feel like work at all.I am confident that I will never have to work for others again unless I want to!"
"I sat at my PC and just typed and typed. I knew absolutely nothing about the internet, websites, HTML, or anything... I just typed. The great thing about SBI is that they do all of the hard (and necessary) work for me. That frees up my time to do what I do best and love the most... write, teach, play, and learn."
Let me tell you the light started to glow real Bright.
Because I had done so much investigation up to this point I still had a few unanswered questions, but the last thing that I wanted to do was talk to a slick sales person... What Now?
As I have come to appreciate about SBI since 2008, when I started my site with them, they have the answers. Don't speak to a sales person, speak one on one with another SBIer, an actual owner of a successful web site. How could I lose I called.
From then on I knew I was about to have my dream, to live at the coast! And I Do!
If this does not qualify as the best view from your office, bedroom, porch, I don't know?
Its ours and we love it. We got to realize our dream!
We Live, Work, Play by the sea.
I have to repeat something I just said, "Live, Work, Play this is true but what brought it all together, what absolutely made it possible is that we could combine our knowledge and passion for energy healing with SBI and create an income that supports more than our lifestyle and still leaves us with the opportunity to fulfill our next dream, to tour and continue to share our knowledge of energy healing.
Live Work Play with Abundance
Because SBI! makes online business success do-able. Anyone can succeed with an all-in-one process, that includes all the tools guidance direction and unlimited support.
They have simplified the process to such a degree that success (Where SUCCESS + Profits, not just the mere presence of a Web site) is more than achievable.
Even if you are a "newbie" a beginner right up to and including the experienced person, achieving success is right there within your grasp, literally one step is all it takes.
SBI! really does change lives.
SBI is not just a "site builder." If you've taken the time to look around you will have noticed that there are many websites out there offering a "Get Rich Quick" scheme with there own site builder. Unfortunately, for many who have tried some of them, they came to discover to late that what they were buying into was just that a scheme or maybe better put a scam!
Creating a successful website is so much more than just putting up a website, there is a system that has to be followed, starting right at the beginning with knowing exactly how to convert you passion to a web concept, building on that up to the point of launching your first page, growing and getting to reap the rewards.
Keep these features in mind when you compare to other hosts you have seen.
To effectively achieve your goal you have to know that you wont need to worry about looking for separate hosting or bandwidth, you wont have to pay out extra for a separate keyword research tool, the submissions will be correctly and timeously done, that your autoresponder is integrated.
I can go on and on telling about all the tools that you are going to need, maybe the best way is for you to have a look yourself.
Another aspect of SBI! that saves me so much time and effort is that they remove all the technical barriers which allows me to keep my attention on building my business.
With a lot of the functions completely automated I did not then need to know anything up front about building a Web site in order to succeed SBI handled all these tedious, "under-the-hood" stuff automatically so I could focus on other important business-building activities.
One of the biggest contenders for my money was "WordPress", you may have heard or looked into them, if you haven't now might be the time.
A web based business is different in so much as that the setting up of it has to be done in a very specific way if you want to do it right the first time and SBI! is the only product that takes the time to prepare you to build a profitable business before you jump into building your site.
If this is your first time building a web site your learning curve will be shorter and by using their system you'll bypass any show-stopping errors.
If you have already built a web business you will be amazed at how SBI! will deepen your level of understanding and how fast you will e able to implement what you have learned.
The very first thing you will be introduced to is "The Action Guide" this manual, there is a video version if you prefer, is step-by-step process that will guide you from the very first step and will remain your companion through the life of your site.
Your commitment to your success will be to follow it This has proven itself over and over again every successful SBI! owners will say in one way or another "all I did was follow the Guide."
It prevents you from getting sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. Every step, in logical sequence is clearly defined and laid out for you, ensuring that you will reach your goal.
The 24/7 customer support is always on hand and super willing to go the extra mile combined with the SBI! Forums anything and everything web based is possible. The SBI forums are filled with people who are friendly, with the mind set of "help-and-be-helped"
People by because they are "pre-sold", on the web you will not have a brand presence to do your selling and so a concept was invented, by SiteSell, which we know as C T P M. by understanding and employing the concept as you grow your site so the process will lead people into that pre sold state of mind.
With a web site it can be difficult to grasp that profit has to be built in from day one and to achieve that you will use the Content Traffic PREsell Monetize process
This is the process that when correctly deployed capitalizes upon the fundamental realities of how people use the Web and how you will get your sales, your profits and at reach your goal.
Following on with the action guide the time will come to create your site's Look & Feel.
As an integral part of SBI! there are fully customizable, easy-to-use templates.
As an SBIer you have the choice you can use their system to build and create your masterpiece or if you are so inclined you can create and upload your own, here is a sample of the extensive range of styles.
I may have missed telling you about this but you do not need to know anything about programming. SBI is a "SITE BUILDER" , if you have programming skills and want to use them, great, every tool and feature will be available to you, but if not and you do not want to be bothered with that side of things then this tool is one of a kind, all you need supply is your passion about your subject and let SBI do the rest.
