Site Build It!

Still just a hobby

But as I said before, my sales have suffered. My wrists are fine as long as I don't overdo it. But the fact still remains, this is still hobby income. We would like to make enough money to help us pay off our bills and still have spending money.

Even harder times

Living month to month is getting very difficult. With the cost of living rising over the past year, we have had to tighten our belts even more. It's sad to say, that the position many people have found themselves in as a result of the economic recession we're in now, is everyday life to us.

We've always had to watch our pennies. We've always searched for ways to make extra money. The internet has just made it a little easier. Thank goodness Cir used to work in electronic sales and we were introduced to computers and the internet in the early 1990's.

Our children grew up from the very beginning with electronics, computers, and the internet. We've used it to maximize the little business that we did do on-line. That brings us up to the year – 2007.

The continued search

We have always searched for ways to make extra money, as I said before. We were looking at cleaning businesses. (If I listed everything we've ever tried to do, I'd have to write a book - if you'd be interested, let us know : )

Anyway, I found a site that I thought was interesting and we considered buying their ebook. I saw a link at the bottom that said who the site was built by. "Powered by Site Build It!"

I was the curious type, so I clicked on it. The rest is kind of history. Now we're here with our site about multiple sclerosis. It's the closest thing to us. We want to help others who also have MS, learn how to cope with it just as we have over the past 30 or so years.

A perfect fit

SBI is the perfect fit. We can both work from home. And we're still able to homeschool our teenage daughter. When health issues come up, we can step back from building it to deal with them. 

We can work at our own pace. As slow as we want or we can do more when time permits. We realize we're building a business. We are building it slowly, patiently, letting each thing fall into place.

SBI! Proof

We can work at our own pace. As slow as we want or we can do more when time permits. We realize we're building a business. We are building it slowly, patiently, letting each thing fall into place.

So many of the other things we've done, have been because we thought we could have quick success. You know the GRQ (Get Rich Quick) schemes. Every single time, we ran into a brick wall. None of the other opportunities we tried ever worked out. Not one.

From a $1,000.00 website, to the $50.00 self-publishing company, to all of my creative pursuits. I must admit that I do have some sales with my pattern designs, but not enough to make a huge difference.

Not just a website

SBI! Case Studies

Another reason why we started building our website is because for once we finally know that we've found something that is for real. A way that we can help others while helping ourselves.

We have so many days when we feel that MS and the challenges it brings will win the battle. But when we look at the progress we've made and the potential for growth, we have hope that eventually our site will be what we envision it can be.

Update: Can you believe it! We're actually making money with our site now. Consistent, passive, income that actually makes a difference each month. We've stuck with it and now it's beginning to pay off.

We've even started another site - Sandwiches Again? It's fun and our daughter is a little more involved with this one. Eventually this will be earning an income as well. And it's a lot easier because we know what we're doing this time around.

If you've tried other ways of making money on the internet and have had the same results we have, all we ask is that you take a look. See the results others have had.

Read about SBI. Listen to the Action Guide. Read the stories of others who have been where we are. See if you see the same thing we saw 3 years ago. Hopefully you'll join us and begin your own journey.
