Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

A Home Based Business
Is The Key To Flexibility!

What Would Give Me The Flexibility I Wanted?

A home based business. Pure and simple. I’m an ex corporate guy turned actor, author and motivational speaker. I left a corporate job in a company that I loved to be able to live the next part of my life doing the things that I always dreamed of doing. The big question I had to ask myself was, “If I stay here in this corporate environment, will I be able to act, write as much as I want and travel around the world giving speeches?” The answer I gave myself was no. And yes there was another question I had to ask myself which was, “Will you be able to find something that will give you the kind of income you need to be able, not only to have the flexibility you need, but also to take care of your responsibilities?” The answer I gave myself was, “I believe it is possible and I will make it happen.” Could it be a home based business?, I asked myself. I love that idea, so let me look into it.”

And the rest is history!

Now, I’ve succeeded in creating the kind of set up that I wanted.

You see my business model in my new life calls for the following:
· Writing books.
· Each book has its own web site.
· Each time I build a web site it must be one that brings in passive income!
· Each web site will take up a small portion of my time (approximately 20%) and I set my income target that I want to achieve.
· Each web site earns money through the sale of my own informational products and through the complimentary products that I sell of the reputable companies and internet marketers that I have affiliated myself with and with whom I collaborate. It’s a great mix.

The Things That Guide Me:

The base thought is and must be for me: To Offer High-Quality Products And Services With The Objective Of Helping People To Improve Their Quality Of Life.

My Values: Honesty – Credibility – Courage – Determination – Quality – Perseverance – Innovation

So I looked high and low for someone I could trust who could teach me how to build a home based business. I had two websites built by “so called” webmasters, who either took me to the bank and left me with a low-quality product, a web site that wasn’t functional or they had only one thing in mind. Sell to me once and move on.

I Found It!

After a while I really got tired and told myself that I had to find someone I could trust and who knew how to help me build a real home based business, so I started studying the internet until I found a guy named Ken Envoy and his product SBI! Site Build It!

I looked around for two years and never saw anything like what they offer. I’ll tell you a little about it, but then you go and have a look for yourself.

I’m a step by step kind of guy. I’m not a computer geek, don’t know html, don’t know java script or any of that stuff. I know how to sit down and type and do a few other things and that’s it!

SBI! Site Build It! practically takes you by the hand and sits you down and explains to you everything you need to know to build just a web site if that's what you want, or a full blown home based business. They have documents, video explanations, daily (very, very detailed) statistics so that you can see how many visitors, where they come from, which countries, how many clicks, trends and just about anything you can imagine. There are forums for you to ask questions, an affiliate program. It’s a real community! Each page is automatically submitted to the search engines and you get reports on how you are ranked. It’s professional. It’s legit. It’s a product, that really guides you into building a home based business, that I would challenge anyone to find something better and that gives you more than SBI! Does. Anyone. It’s exactly what I have been looking for. Oh! And there is no extra hosting fee! And, you don’t need to know html. There is a block building tool that helps you to build each page step by step. My 11 year old son could do it. There! I think I’ve covered the most important things.

My results?

Now I can say that I have a home based business, that I can do from anywhere in the world. I built ActingCareerStartUp.com at the end of January 2007. Now in July, I have five thousand visitors per month, that view over 15, 000 pages per month, visitors from fifty-four countries around the world and I have over the last month generated revenues of $50 per day, which equals $1,500 per month. And I did it working on it just an average of two hours per day since I got it set up. And I’m just getting started! I’ve learned what I have to do to get those numbers to grow. And growing they are, every single day.

All I did, was do exactly what they told me to do, step-by-step. That’s it.

Enough of me talking/writing.
Have a look at some of these links and let some other people talk about building a home based business:

Or how about:

Take the video tour and see if what I explained above is in line with what you see here.

This is the kind of support you get when you build your site! You can’t beat it!

Or

Why don’t you go and see some of the other success stories there are of people who used this same system to build their home based business.

So how is the time divided up with all my activities?

While in Italy (7 months/year):

· Consulting/key note speaking: 20%
· Web site: 2-3 hours per day: 30%
· Writing a new book (one is already published: Acting Career Start-Up: Four Key Factors For Success ), there will be two more by the end of 2008!

While in New York: (5 months/year)

· Acting (classes, acting jobs, auditions, etc.): 80%
· Website maintenance (adding pages, forums, strategizing, monitoring stats, etc.): 20%.

And, the money is coming in every single day.

It’s the ideal situation!
