The Future is in Your Hands . . . It always has been.

Some say our future and our economy are ready to tank. . . I don’t believe that. I believe great opportunities are waiting for anyone who sees our historical situation.

I believe you and I can each use our individual talent, skills, and experiences to determine our own financial future.

During our worst economic times, like the Great Depression, creative and persistent visionaries created small businesses that ultimately grew to become many of our national industries of today.

We are all interconnectedToday, any talent, skill, or experience you have can harness the internet to produce income and wealth. It simply requires an understand of how the internet operates and grows. It requires a little more than just “building a website.” But, the pattern for successful internet businesses work over and over.

I have seen this pattern work over and over, some in my own experience and some in other websites. It is only a mystery if you don’t see the pattern.

I have enjoyed working with the internet for more than ten years. I would like to share with you what I’ve learned, and it can help you.

If you have a website that “isn’t doing anything,” or if you have an idea but don’t know where to start, or if you want an idea to know where to start, or even if you have a local “brick and mortar” business or service and want reach many more customers, the same rules and patterns apply.

The internet is a powerful medium. Those who “get it” can turn it to their advantage. Those who don’t or won’t will lose one of the biggest “game changers” in our history.

If I had a little more time, or if I thought you would read more, I would talk about

  • Economic opportunities
  • The reach of e-commerce
  • The need for your talent, skills, and experience
  • The amazing power of social media “connectedness” in our day
  • How to eliminate internet technical barriers

But I won’t. I want to keep this short, even though my pen doesn’t want to stop.

Now, I will tell you right now that the internet is not a get rich quick scheme. It takes planning. It takes good content. And it takes some time to grow. Occassionally someone gets a  short-term scheme to work, and there are marketers who say “just do this little step and you’ll make thousands in two days. . . .” But that is not the norm and is not likely.

However, the internet does work under certain constant principles. If you understand the principles and harness the principles, you can develop an “internet presence” that grows, much like packing a small snowball and rolling it off a large hill.

I will not tell you that it is easy. It takes time and effort; you just have to do the right things to get the ball rolling and then continue to direct it down the hill. It works. And I want to show you how.

As I said earlier, for 10 years I have studied and built websites that have produced consistent revenue, some over $100,000 per year. Of course some floundered. But I know what made the successful ones work and what made the slow ones slow. Even the slow ones can be fixed.

Recently, I have had several individuals ask me for help to build their websites. But I have only been able to help a few, and it still falls back to them to make it grow. Without the knowledge of the correct patterns and actions, even quality websites stagnate. However, I can share with everyone what I know so they can prosper.

Do you want to know why?

  1. The more others (you) produce, the better off everyone, the “commonweath”, is. It never hurts me when you succeed. It only helps me by giving me increased choices.
  2. If I teach others, they can do for themselves what I wouldn’t be able to for the them, even if I wanted to.
  3. Of course, ultimately I will benefit if I can provide goods and services for them. And I do have services and extended training that I desire to offer that will help them even more.
  4. And finally, because I do like to see others succeed. And I know you can.

So, I have produced a 10-week teleseminar course that teaches all of the critical steps to building, launching, and maintaining a website that can be profitable for pretty much any topic. It is Free. All of it. Every week. Each week is packed with an hour of non-stop information that comes from 10 years of learning, stumbling, and overcoming. I will share this with anyone.

Yes. It will be recorded.
Yes. You will be able to have a copy of the recording
Yes. The recording is also free.
