    How I’m supporting my family…

    I read so many hyped-up announcements about how to make money on the internet. It seems there’s a newsletter in my mailbox every time I turn around. All of them promise you’ll make a mint right away… and it’s been my experience that they are all worth less than the time it takes me to delete them. Sound familiar?

    The economy stinks, and I don’t know about you but it’s getting darned tough to make ends meet. Since I know there are lots of readers out there, and that we are all trying to support our kids and families — juggling time and money everyday to make sure there’s enough of both — I thought I’d weigh in with the one resource that has been helpful to me.

    Before I do, let me give you a bit of my background. I’ve purchased many programs on “internet marketing” and “home businesses” that promised to help me get started, help me make money, and promise to provide support.  I’ve been so disappointed so many times!

    Have you been there, too? You know the drill. You pay, read the ebook or watch the video, and then you have a TON of questions. So you go to the forum attached to their product and it turns out there are, like, 3 participants who were last heard from back in 2004. Your emails to the author are not returned. It’s a dead-end street.

    Don’t even get me started about my experiences with all the stuff that’s pushed at SAHM’s and WAHM’s… let alone “opportunity seekers” and “entrepreneurs”. It’s truly disgusting the number of people who prey on parents who just need more money for the rent or mortgage. There are probably some other things out there that are legit, but I have yet to actually find anything — and I’ve looked hard, as my credit card statements will attest.

    It’s so frustrating!

    Then one day my friend Paula (whom I met because we were the only two on one of those junky forums, and both of us were fed up) told me about a great product she was using. My first thought was, “Oh no, how is my credit card going to withstand this one?”

    With a monthly subscription option, it was affordable. Based on Paula’s recommendation I took the plunge and signed up.

    I have to say, I’m so happy I did. It really works. The forum is lively, with posts that are just like gold. The business owner personally responded to my email with of questions on the first day –something that’s never happened to me during this journey.

    If this is something you are interested in,

    And if it’s not for you, feel welcome to forward this post to any of your friends who are struggling with making more money for their family. Times are tough out there, and I’d like to meet any family who hasn’t made some changes because of the economy.

    My hope is that this can help other people avoid all those scams and disappointing products out there, and spend their heard-earned money on something that is helpful and real.

    Take care, and may the road rise up to meet you….
