I started my online business as a hobby. I didn't plan on making a change for life. I just wanted to try something different.
I started in June of 2011 after going through some personal and career turmoil in my life. Fortunately this was not a very bad time in my life just a time of transition. Like everyone, I have had those earth shaking bad times, so that is why I say that this was just one of those times in life where you are presented with a fork in the road and you really don't know which way to turn.
At the time I was working as a nursing director putting in 60 to 70 hours per week. I was just completing my master's degree which I did full time and I had two daughters that was growing up without me and a husband that wasn't getting a lot of attention.
So I decided why not build a website on top of everything else. No, not really what I thought was if I could build a business from home I wouldn't have to work these crazy hours and I would be around my family more. A dream I think many of us have.
When I started, I knew nothing about building a website. I didn't know HTML, or what a domain name and hosting meant. Being the person I am, I started reading about blogging, article writing and yes building a website. I spent hours of my time and a good deal of money to learn the basics. So now I am working full time, finishing school and trying to learn how to create a website. Yes, this was a change for life but not the one I was hoping for!
After struggling and doing my homework, I found SBI. The claims that this site offered seemed to good to be true. The price was right but I thought that there is no way that it can be as easy as promised, have all the tools I needed and give me all the information I needed to create a successful online business. Boy I couldn't have been more wrong. It was a change for life in my web business.
Yes, there are easier ways to build a Web site. However, online profits require more than just having a collection of Web pages. SBI! includes all the tools and a proven process required to build a long-term, profitable e-business.
One of the greatest things for me was the continuous mentoring and advise that I was given. All the research that I had done on my own didn't supply me with even one tenth of the information and education that SBI has to offer. SBI taught me that I truly could make a change for life and start my own business.
Continuous mentoring via the Action Guide and online help is always available. Learn by reading (written guide) or watching (video guide)! You are carefully guided every step of the way, which make success that much more do-able. Advanced help is also available (when you are ready for it), all designed to save you time and keep you moving forward.
Choosing your best site concept is not always as obvious as you might think. Brainstorm It! and Niche Choose It! show you the best path for your particular business, reveal some surprises, and help you make the right choice.
When it's time to create your site's Look & Feel, SBI! provides fully customizable, easy-to-use templates. You can choose and create a professional-looking presentation, even if you have no design skills. And if you're a designer, you can create and upload your own. This page shows a range of styles.
Traffic Stats and Click Analysis help you understand what your visitors like most. Understanding them helps you know what to write about, which in turn leads to more and more business.
SBI! includes an easy-to-use form builder with autoresponders. You can build contact forms, surveys, and polls to easily communicate with your visitors. You don't need to use your e-mail address, which attracts spam. Experienced users will appreciate no longer needing separate form-building tools. Having these tools all in one place saves time and expense, too.
Automatic site blogging turns your site into a blog easily. You'll enjoy all the benefits of a blog without needing extra skills or additional software. For those experienced with blogging, auto-pinging for your SBI! blog keeps your site on the Search Engines' radar. All of this helps attract more traffic.
SBI! has a no-risk, 30-day money back guarantee. It's a risk-free decision that you can make with confidence and peace of mind.
Content 2.0 allows your site's visitors to create content for you. Turn any page on your site into an invitation for your visitors to add content. C2 then allows other visitors to comment and rate the page much like on a blog. This means your site will have more Search Engine attractive pages. Having more site pages means the Search Engines will rank your pages higher and that leads to more traffic. A chain of events that simply started through the contributions of your visitors!
Infin It! enables you to plug third party resources into your SBI! site. You can add forums, shopping carts, datafeeds, blogs and other server-side functionality. Infin It! brings you an SBI! site with no limits.
The SBI! private forums provide friendly, helpful support from other ! users. Help is available from folks who are in the same place as you. This peer-to-peer support gets you over the humps along the way in a stress-free environment. Help is available even for advanced questions.

"Tamar and I did lots and lots of research on kid birthday parties and started experimenting with our ideas on kids and during parties whenever the opportunity arose. We wrote up lots of content for the site and I was in charge of strategy and building the site from a technical aspect (although, with SBI!!, you really don't need any technical knowledge because you can build a site through simple building blocks and monitor every aspect of traffic through a consolidated control center.). In no time, both of us became kid birthday junkies."
"While I loved my career when I was single, I found the stress of working long hours when I had small children was very taxing. I no longer feel stressed when one of my kids needs to stay home from school. I can take care of them and still work on my business. I wake up excited every morning. There is nothing like the sense of accomplishment that I feel when I learn something new or master a new skill."
"I would come home late from work, spend time with my children, put them to bed, and then work on my SBI! site. Little by little I prodded on. Sometimes, I was so excited, I would stay up till 4 AM to complete a page."
