Hope you are enjoying Frugal-retirement-living.com…If the site encourages you to consider an alternative way of retiring…it has been a success.
If you are curious about how someone with little computer skills...and I mean close to zero...has managed to put up a site like this... make money...as a work from home business?
So do you want to retire?, anywhere you want, and earn money from home...but do not know how to do it...this is how I did it ...you can too.
All I can say is thank you Site Build It.
The stock market slide of 2008 hit my wife and I very hard and if the market does not turn around we will have no choice but to sell our home and go to an RV , park model or combination way of living. Not that we are looking at that as a step down…it is not.
We have done it before, we can do it again…I thought it important to commit to writing our experiences in these lifestyles because I know there are many more people in the same situation we are in.
I had wanted to get some extra income to forestall the home selling scenario. I do not want to go back to work. I find I love being with my wife 24 hours a day, like the last 17 years...I will not give that up. I started to explore ways of working at home. The idea of working on the web from anywhere in the world was the main driver in doing something on line.
I started to earn a consistent $1,000 a month, after a year of following the SBI recipe for success...writing about my early retirement experiences. It amazes me that I earn money with no product to sell, other than providing information of interest to others. Your hobby...passion...interests can do the same for you.
I found that there are many scams and get rich schemes on the Internet...I fell for three...you do not have to do that. I floundered for a few months before finding Site Build It in January 2009. Used car salesmen are saints compared to some that I found on line.
With Site Build It, all I can say is that if you do your part, lots of reading, watching videos, and follow the plan you can have a website up that you can be proud of. The learning tools SBI provides are great and easy to use. Is it all smooth sailing? No, nothing worth having is without a few snags.
There are no shortcuts to success in anything.
Think about it…if earning on the Internet was so easy everyone would be doing it.
It requires a lot of effort on your part, no question. But Site Build It over delivers their part of the deal
I can also relate to the fact that owner of Site Build It, Dr Ken Evoy, is a medical doctor…he is old like me (not quite)…there is nothing slick about the man…he is the real deal and is passionate about giving others the tools to succeed. That’s Ken below
I may never understand all the technical stuff…but when SBI says they take care technical stuff, they do so and then some.
After 3 and a half months my site was ranked in the top 1% of all websites...10 months later it is in the top 0.3%, that floors me, and I just hit 500 unique visitors a day.
There are over 200 million websites on line today. That ranking, top 1%, is not too bad for a site started in March, 2009.
Solo Build It prepares you for each stage of the journey, there have been no surprises.
Things I really like about SBI:
If you would like to work on line..with the freedom it allows…this is the only place to start. It's how I built this site. you can do it too.
