Working For Yourself And Getting To Keep ALL The Profits...
Yesterday you read about Jim Nelson,
who took his passion for Juggling and
turned it into a business that sells all sorts of juggling related products to
people all over the world. Then he started another business focused on parrots
and did the same thing.
Jim is living proof that you can find a market online for even the most
interesting and diverse topics and carve out a profitable business if you follow
a proven system
I loved the
way his business started out as an extension of one of his favorite things, and
then grew to become quite profitable over time.
Did you notice the way Jim’s visitor traffic grew?
Form very little to quite large numbers, and as he says, “This is for
Now I haven’t looked at the numbers for people looking for information
on juggling on the web, but I’ll bet Jim gets a lot of those seeking tips on
how to juggle better eventually finding their way to his website.
He then has a chance to get them onto an email list and build a
relationship with them over time. Many of these visitors will become long-term
customers, and Jim will probably never even get to meet most of them in person.
And one final word from Jim before we move on…
His comment on page 5, “I'm ready
to keep growing. I tell you, this SBI! is just brilliant!”
…pretty much sums up the thoughts of all of our web business case study
participants so far.
Something to think about…
if you missed Jim's case study yesterday, you
can check it out now by visiting this page...
Today you’ll meet Jerry Mack, who took his knowledge and experience
working for a large business (he was a regional manager for a medical imaging
company, and was making them a very good profit) and went out on his own.
Now he sells a similar range of medical equipment and gets to keep the
profits for himself.
Are you starting to see a pattern forming here?
1) Have hobby, skill or experience
2) Build a web business around this hobby, skill or experience
3) Enjoy what you are doing, plus make money at the same time
4) Leave the rat race behind and live life on your own terms…
If you could do something similar, how would that make you feel?
Ok, let’s take a look at Jerry’s story…
Study #6 – Jerry Mack
Mack took what he knew about a specialized field and turned it into an
impressive, thriving business in just two years.
from nothing but a blank computer screen, his accumulated knowledge, and a Solo Build It website, he has built a business that a larger company liked so much
they offered to buy it from him for $200,000 per year for 5 years.
as part of that offer, they were going to let him keep up to 20% ownership of an
estimated $10 million dollar company after 5 years.
Jerry and his wife decided to say no.
lifestyle meant more to them than just the money.
would you decide if you were offered a similar deal for your web business?
story is one of the most inspirational of them all, because it shows how he went
from making his former boss money to making it for himself, and how he has built
a very valuable asset for himself and his family.

I would have to spend to do that without a Web site? I choke to think about it.

country even though you work in your bathrobe in the den. And, in one sense, I
really do have warehouses all over our nation. I just don't own them and don't
have to worry about them.

professional-looking newsletter, with the first site. Our customers love the
updates, and by staying in front of their eyeballs, they thought of Jerry Mack
when they thought about their next purchase.”
what about the offer to buy his business?

20% ownership of an estimated $10 million dollar company after 5 years. But we

realized SBI! had given us something more than the potential financial gain of
selling the business. SBI! has given us freedom. We have total control of our
business (and daily lives) and the merging of our business would mean giving
away some of that freedom.”
quote above, “SBI has given us freedom,” really says it all,
doesn’t it? Isn’t that what we all want for ourselves and those we love?
to do what we want, whenever we want, with whoever we want…without having to
worry about our finances.
Jerry and his wife Kate already have it after just two years work. They didn’t
just sit on their hands and hope for success, they got out there and made it

sell it for peanuts.”

course not, but many SBI’ers build businesses that do ultimately give them the
