Maybe I’m the only one who will ever see this, but I’m doing it anyway. I want to write down how I found what I’ve been looking for after 11 years. And I want to track my progress.
If by chance this helps another person to change their circumstances, it will be a bonus.
I now know exactly why you should never give up on your dreams, even if it seems that they’ll never come true.
Since 2003 I’ve been searching for a way to earn an internet income – preferably residual. I spent a lot of money (oh yeah, there are a plenty of internet marketers who smiled when they saw me coming) only to see my credit card balances go higher. I never saw the so-called guaranteed income. I tried everything, followed the advice of “gurus” and although I put in long hours, I just never got anywhere.
Even as an Amazon affiliate I only made +- $43 in about 3 years. As a Clickbank affiliate I got one payment of $121. I tried everything but just couldn’t make the sales to qualify for another payment. I then had to watch as my small balance dwindled because CB decided that if there were no sales, they would just take $5 or so every month off my account. Needless to say that account is closed now!
I got so despondent that I stopped and decided that I’ll just have to give up on my dream to be financially independent. I was so anti-internet income that I nearly missed the opportunity that changed my life.
I can only say that I got involved with SFI because of it Heavenly Intervention. I was adamant to never try anything again. To never waste time or money. NEVER! AGAIN!
So, here’s what happened :
On 16 October 2014 I received this email – everything in red is exactly as I got it :

At the bottom was a blue block with a link I had to click (unfortunately I’m not able to copy it here)
I left it in my inbox. It sat there …. Patiently waiting ….
After about a week I was ready to delete it but instead decided to click on the link in the email … I was taken to a page with a short form to fill out. I was ready to click the little corner X when something stopped me. What could it hurt? It would only take a few minutes and wouldn’t cost anything.
I filled out the form and got sent to the SFI registration page. Once again I wanted to just click the little corner X! AGAIN, something stopped me! It was free to join and I could just cancel if it turned out to be a waste of time. Where’s the harm? So I joined SFI …….
Now you have to remember, I wasn’t exactly open to the idea. In the back of my mind I was still thinking: “It’s just going to be another disappointment”
When I got to the SFI site I took one look and decided no way, this looks much too complicated. So I promptly went off to do something else …
