And what I know is that your effort + SBI = results.
It really does work!
A little background:
I have an MD and practiced medicine in southern California for ten years before changing careers to stay home with my children full-time due to a very serious disability.
After I left medicine, I thought doing a patient education website would be fun and might bring some income. I was ill much of the time, yet I still wanted to contribute to the family.
When I started my first website back in 2000, I had no idea what I was doing. But I had read a little bit and knew I needed to have my own domain name and pay for web hosting if I wanted to be taken seriously.
I saw SBI! (short for Site Build It!) but I thought it was too expensive.
So I did it on my own.
This is what happened:
That first time (I call it my before SBI! time), I did what most people do when they want to start an online business:
Did I get results? No.
Why do people keep doing this? I think it's because they don't understand the real problem that they have when they want to start a business.
Hint: it's not that you don't have a website!
The real problem I had was that I had no understanding of business ... no matter how hard I tried, no matter what new "app" or "book" or "turn key system" I bought, I couldn't get any income.
I ended up selling my domain name for a few hundred dollars after four years of hard work.
I now realize that there are many unscrupulous people who take money from people trying to make money, especially people who need to make money fast.
And so, like many people do, I lost thousands of dollars trying to have an online business.
Fortunately, the story doesn't end there!
Six years later, my health was much better, and I felt ready to try an online business again. I was determined that this time it would be different:
So when I saw some information about a company called SiteSell (link opens in a new window) that promised to teach you HOW to make a successful website I was interested.
But I was cautious. I did a lot of research.
The main program that SiteSell has is called Site Build It!, or SBI!
This program is a ten-part class that gives you the complete practical knowledge of exactly how to make a business website successful!
Included in the cost is:
Once I got Site Build It! (link opens a new window) I didn't have to buy anything else. The hosting, tools, and domain name registration are all included!
(Hint: do not buy your domain name yet! "Day 5" shows you how to research the very best domain name for your niche.)
So here's the deal: You can know absolutely nothing about business or computers and come out not only with an online business of your very own, but with the contacts, connections, and interpersonal support you need to succeed.
No cheap hosting company or free blog platform is going to give you all that. They couldn't, or they would go out of business!
(there are a lot of people who do know how to do all the computer stuff and are great at business, and still choose SBI! because of how much time and money that the tools save them)
SBI! is $299 USD a year, up front. No gimmicks, no hidden costs, no high pressure tactics, no spam.
They have a monthly program of payments, if you'd rather do it that way.
SBI! isn't just a website, or a forum, or a blog, or a hosting company, or a "secret formula", or a "scam", or a "get rich quick" scheme. If you want to do nothing and get rich by doing nothing, this is not for you.
SBI! is solid instruction on:
You don't have to do shady or cut-throat things to make money online -- it can be a "win-win" situation for everyone.

I'm finally getting my dream!
I love my site. I love writing about plants and food and edible landscaping. I enjoy learning the things I'm learning, and I love seeing the numbers of people who are visiting my site grow. The feedback from my friends, family, and visitors has been very positive.
And, best of all, I'm making money instead of losing money.
I recouped my $299/year investment after eighteen months. Many SBI! users do it sooner.
Ask most website owners if they have done the same in the same time frame. Most will admit they haven't.
(if you need proof, contact me -- I'd be happy to talk to you about it)
If I can do it, you can do it.
Yes, even you.
I can't tell you how grateful I am to have found Site Build It. This is the most fun ... and at times most challenging course I've ever taken. And I love it.
So that's my story ... I hope it inspires you to try something new.
Wishing you the best of success!
