Hi, my name is Jess Gillenwater, and you may be where I was a few years ago. I knew people were making money on the internet but I wasn't sure how exactly to go about doing it myself. I was bored at work one day and was surfing around the net when I came across an opportunity to sell something (an actual product - it wasn't MLM or anything like that.) I checked it out and it looked legit so I decided to go for it. I started my own internet business. I was so excited!
I didn't have any computer or business experience - I didn't even have an internet connection at home! -- so to say that it was difficult is an understatement. I had to teach myself everything (and I mean everything!) I didn't know how to get my web site on the internet, how to build a web site, what scams to look out for (and there are a bunch -- I know because I fell for quite a few of them!) We're talking I was completely lost about all this 'internet business' stuff.
I wish I could say I had someone who was able to show me the ropes and tell me what to do and what pitfalls to avoid, but I didn't. I was on my own. I fell into a LOT of the pitfalls and it cost me - big time!
Well, to make a long story short, I worked really, really hard on my internet business and about a year later I was able to give my two weeks notice. Since then, I've been able to support myself entirely with the money I make from my internet businesses (I've got several now.)
I ended up doing much better than I ever thought was possible. Running my various internet businesses has literally changed my life. I feel so much more confident and alive, and let me tell you working for yourself IS all it's cracked up to be.
So how did I go from sitting in my cramped little cubicle to having my own successful internet business? It was a lot of hard work, screw ups (and I made some real doozies) and good old trial and error. I would not wish this on you or anyone, especially if you are like I was -- just wanting to make a better life for yourself and your family, just wanting to succeed.
When my friends saw how well I was doing they wanted me to show them how they could start an internet business so I did. And things just sort of snowballed from there. I really like helping people and I'm good at this stuff so ... over the last several years I've helped literally hundreds of people who want to have their own businesses get started on the internet. A lot of the people I've helped kept urging me to write a book about it so I did. I have distilled everything that has taken me a couple of years to figure out about putting a business on the internet and making it successful into an ebook called "How to Start and Run an Internet Business: Everything you Need to Know."
This isn't a get rich quick type book at all so if that's what you're after you're wasting your time. This is a book that walks you through the whole process of starting and running a successful internet business. In 162 pages it tells you the exact steps you need to take to get your business up and running successfully, the scams and sucker traps to avoid and a whole lot more.
This is all the nitty-gritty stuff that I've learned from experience. You will find out how to do everything you need to do the easy, cheap way and you won't have to stumble and bumble around trying to figure this stuff out yourself like I had to. This guide can really save you a LOT of time, money and frustration.
In the book you will learn everything you need to know to build your internet business into a successful, beyond-your-dreams business. It tells you all the secrets I discovered as I worked my way to internet success. It's packed full of the information that the successful internet business owners know and the unsuccessful ones don't. This is all "meat." There isn't any fluff in it.
I give you all the information you need to know if you want to succeed on the internet and I tell you everything in plain, everyday English, not confusing techie jargon. In the book I tell you:

A close friend of mine persuaded me to write this ebook so I could help as many people as possible so ...

Why is this so cheap?
Two reasons and both are the honest truth. The first reason is that you will be doing me a huge favor. I've just finished my ebook and I'm so excited about it that I want to get it out there helping people as soon as possible. I think you will love it and frankly I'm trying to get as much feedback as I can on it. You can read the comments that run down the left hand column of this web page to hear what some other people I've helped have had to say. I plan to increase the price to $49.95 as soon as I get just a bit more feedback.
The second reason is that I really genuinely love helping people succeed. It makes me happy and it makes me feel like I'm giving something back. I remember what it was like when I was starting out. I didn't have a couple of hundred dollars and certainly not a couple of thousand to spend to have someone help me get my internet business up and running. The reason I wanted to have a business was because I didn't have a lot of money.
I was really struggling and watching my pennies. I could have spent around $50 for help so that's what I'm basing my pricing on. To be quite frank, the book is worth a lot more than what I'm charging but I want to help as many people as I can that are like I was -- determined to succeed but aren't sure how to actually go about getting an internet business up and running successfully. This is the book I would have loved to have had when I was starting out and I know you will feel the same way about it.
In a couple of short minutes, for just $39.95 you can be downloading my ebook.
Good Luck and Best Wishes,
PS Don't forget - if you are one of the first to order in the next five days (or when my 15 available slots run out - whichever is sooner) I will help you personally over email solve your most pressing internet business problem or challenge.
