A Special Thanks to my Friends!

July 17, 2008

In this cut-throat dog-eat-dog world of Internet Marketing, I am very fortunate to have such good friends online.

Yesterday I found out that I had to come up with over $600 to avoid disconnection of my Electricity. I attempted to work out a solution with my power company, but they weren’t willing to accept anything less than the $600.

With no where to turn, no money to borrow, and no way to get this money quickly, I turned to my friends online. With their help, I was able to gather my collection of markets and phrases, sort through available bonuses, and create a product to sell.

Through their efforts, support, guidance, and money (thanks for buying), I was able to not only pay that $600, but also bring the rest of my bills up to date.

My vacation starts on Saturday and it’s just a great feeling to not have that constant worry that someone will show up to turn something off.

With all my heart I am forever grateful to have such wonderful friends by my side. I’m still in shock to see that everyone chipped in and helped me in my time of need.

I just wanted to say thank you to Nez, Caro, Phill, Ed (NextInstinct), Lisa, Bill, Brent, Asbjorn, TechDogg, and especially Barb. It was Barb who used facebook to let the others know I needed help. Thanks Barb!

I also wanted to give a special thanks to Dan Raine. Dan went above and beyond the call of duty and for that I now put him in God status.. My wife has already planned on turning our dining room into a Dan Raine shrine.

Another special thanks goes out to Nathan for helping me get the product ready, suggestions, and helping me with the forum post copy. Without Nathan, I probably wouldn’t have finished getting everything ready.

I would also like to thank Joel Comm for purchasing a copy of my product and using his creditability to help me by posting his recommendation on my forum post as well as twittering it.

And finally, I want to thank each and every person who knew me or not, but purchased the product anyways. I hope you get great value out of the product and I really appreciate it!

Now I’m ready to relax and go to bed early.. I was up until 5:00am and had to get up again at 6:00am to go to work. I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep.

Best wishes to you all.

Sincerely,
Shannon

p.s. If I missed anyone above, I am very sorry. I did my best to make sure I included everyone.

Will you leave a legacy?

Back on July 12, 2007, I made a post titled Definite Major Purpose.

As each day passes, my desire to make my definite major purpose a reality grows.  I want more out of life and I want to help children in the process.

One of the biggest things that hold people back from being successful in life is the belief that their family’s failures are their own.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  I can’t say that I’m immune to this thinking.
