Today is Thanksgiving here in the United States. This day has different meaning for each of us, but for me it is special in a way I would like to share with you. It was two years ago today, on Thanksgiving of 2006, that I first made a sale on the internet. I had been making money with affiliate products, but on this day someone bought a product that I had created.
This man is still on my list, and he has gone on to publish several eBooks and create his own online business. Occasionally he will email me, asking for help with technology or just to say hello. He doesn’t know he was the first customer I ever had, but he does know that I am grateful that he made that purchase.
I am grateful to all of you who are reading this post, because without you I am just another person on the internet writing about meaningless things. I am grateful to those on my list, those of you who listen to my teleseminars, and to those who trust me enough to spend money with me. You have given me an incredible gift, one that has changed my life forever – the ability to earn a living from my home.
Now it is my turn to give you my gratitude gift this Thanksgiving. This gift is my promise to keep my courses affordable, to keep my groups small, and to continue to give you the best information possible so that you can build your own online empire.
Every time I teach a course I ‘gift’ it to someone on my list. It is my way of reaching out to those who need the information I have but cannot currently afford it. I wish someone had done this for me, so I am trying to start a trend in this direction. It is my way of giving a hand up to someone who wants to accomplish something similar to what I have done on the internet.
So enjoy this day, wherever in the world you happen to be, and know that I am grateful to you for being a part of this incredible life I now have. I am indebted to you, grateful to you, and thankful to you for believing in me, long before I believed in myself.
