This British Ballerina Helped Others Overcome Their Fears

'' We all talk about passion, but blind passion can lead you straight down blind alleys. Cultivate being dispassionate some of the time, long enough that you can fully test your ideas – all of them – and go in the direction that the research tells you. It’s often not the one you think…
 –  Suzanne Vennard

Welcome to A Christmas Carol – Sitesell-style! Each day we’re going to re-introduce one of our successful SBIers and their amazing stories. Like the Ghost of Christmas Past, we’ll revisit these tales of old and see what lessons we can glean. For this twelfth and final day of Christmas, we’re visiting with Suzanne Vennard, of, who noticed something peculiar while working in London. At the time, she was in her early twenties, and still enjoying her dancing, an activity she’d practiced since she was a little girl. So much that she would often bring her ballet bag to work with her so that she could rush off to class that evening. Which brought quite a few looks and …

How to Build Retirement Income and Have Fun Along the Way

By John Shank, Tell us about your website, When and why did you start your site? I started way back in 2003. My main intent was to show visitors how to build their own sheds by sharing my building knowledge with them, and to generate passive income with Google Adsense. Eventually I would offer shed building plans, but that was way down the road. At the time, my site was hosted by another company, before I found out about SBI! (Site Build It!). I was so excited about what Ken Evoy had to offer, and wanted to switch my site over to Site Build It! right away, but I just couldn’t afford the $300. At that time there wasn’t the monthly payment option. I remember convincing my wife that we needed to take out a home improvement loan and I would use $300 of that to pay for moving my ShedKing site over to SBI!. That was without a doubt one of the BEST decisions I have ever made! I remember thinking that boy if I can just generate money from my site jus…

Sharpen The Axe

Benjamin Franklin famously kept a strict daily routine. He’d begin each morning by asking himself, “What good will I accomplish today?” He’d then proceed through a set schedule of activities, and end the day with the follow up question, “What good did I accomplish today?" And in the middle of that day, as he was inventing and helping to, you know, form governments, he would take time out to read. Every day. Franklin would take a two-hour lunch break to review his accounts, dine, and read. Why? Because even Benjamin Franklin didn’t know everything. It is only through reading that we can learn more, expand our minds, open our horizons, and, as Dr. Stephen Covey would put it, sharpen the axe. You see, reading is more than self-education, though that’s an important part of it. Right now you’re reading this email and while we hope to teach you a thing or two, what we are really hoping is that this will get youthinking. That act of thinking will foster creativity and imagination, and get your…

How to live comfortably in retirement

Your retirement depends on your financial success — but financial success is part reality and part perception. In fact, if you moderate what you perceive as financial success, you could improve the financial reality of your future. It’s particularly important to consider this as you approach retirement, but this dynamic actually starts well before you’re ready to retire. It has to do with what kind of lifestyle you think you need. People tend to raise their lifestyles as their income levels rise, but taking this too far can be destructive to both the perception and reality of your financial future. To understand why, just look at the arc household income tends to take over the years. key factors to consider 1. Age and income According to the US Census Bureau, median household income when the primary earner is between 25 and 34 is $54,243. This climbs to $66,693 when the primary earner is between 35 and 44, and to $70,832 when the primary earner is between 45 and 54. As you might expec…

Reasons Why You Should Build A Small Business

We all wish to work on products, start good businesses and accomplish tasks that could change the world and have an enormous impact. l see this in entrepreneurs and the tech community more than anywhere else. The question we ask, whenever we hear about a new business or idea, whether it’s renewable energy or a messaging app or a hamster sled, is this: Will it scale? And then if we find out that whatever idea we’re looking at can’t instantly scale to a million users and isn't designed to be a billion dollar concern, we dismiss it. Sometimes, even laugh at it. When we do that, we’re being assholes. Huge assholes. Because starting a big, huge, fancy, sweating tech company isn't the be-all and end-all, and choosing not to do that doesn't make anyone stupid. In fact, going in the opposite direction is likely to make you happier, healthier, wealthier and wiser. You can choose to found an on-line small business rather than a start-up unicorn. What’s the difference? A start-up unicorn …

What is Commission Gorilla?

This is a complete Affiliate Promotion System (Saas) to help you get the most out of your promotions across any affiliate network or platform you may be using. Quite simply the software (SaaS platform) automates, simplifies and improves upon many of our own affiliate marketing strategies that have generated $1M+ in commissions and prizes this past year and more than $10M in the last few years… …  You could say it’s the ‘software for affiliates made by affiliates‘ but it goes deeper than that:  (A joint project between PromoteLabs & MediaKettle) Commission Gorilla has been in planning & development for 12 months and there’s NOTHING else on the market like it.  In fact we’d go so far as to say this is a ‘game changer’ for affiliate marketers of all experience levels because it offers the potential to double, triple or even quadruple commissions whilst minimizing workload and reducing their operating costs. Why did we build this? Well, we built it for ourselves…  Based on our test…

You Can Start Without A Product

Last time we talked about Thomas Edison, and his unrelenting drive towards creating. In Edison’s case, not only was he an entrepreneur, he was also an inventor. Not everyone is trying to invent something new. You may be considering offering a service, or a new twist on an existing product, and building a business around that. But perhaps that’s what’s holding you back. Too often, entrepreneurs will spend so much time trying to perfect a product that they never actually launch the business! Delays in development not only consume those precious few resources and finances, but can dangerously suck the spirit out of you. Instead, consider The Lean Startup method which is about beginning your business with market research. Identify your niche, brainstorm keywords and data, and put up a website that you can use to test your ideas. Without actually building a product you can sell, is it possible to find out if anyone’s willing to pay for it? Absolutely. In fact, that initial research can tell you a …

How Two Grad Students Turned Their Hobby Into A Business

“Since we started our site we’ve moved country once, moved house three times, changed jobs, quit those jobs, and had two kids! The great thing about having a web business is that it’s flexible enough to fit around all these kind of changes.” – Stephanie and Tobias Locsei For this first day of Christmas, we’re visiting with Stephanie and Tobias Locsei of, back in 2008 when this happy couple were still in grad school, and looking forward to their careers. They were both university research scientists, and preparing hard for their final months in college. They got an email out of the blue that led them to SiteSell, and they were immediately impressed with the process for building an online business that SBI! offered. They said to themselves, “This is it. We can totally do this! It’s just following a system, and that’s something we know we can do.” They went ahead and ordered SBI!, but then, nothing happened. Months went by, while Stephanie and Tobias worked to …

Start a Business and Spend MORE Time at Home? Here's How They Did it.

We work on our own terms and have not had to answer to anyone. We have both been available for our families and can vacation whenever we choose. None of which could have been possible for two women with ZERO knowledge of the Internet or having an online business.-Laura Gawne and Susan Bain

Welcome to A Christmas Carol – Sitesell-style! Each day we’re going to re-introduce one of our successful SBI and their amazing stories.

Her sister, Susan, was feeling the same thing, and really wanted to be able to spend more t…
