Andrew from Raw-Food-Health.net
Andrew has achieved financial freedom at 26 after less than 3 years with SBI. True, he decided to live in Asia where you need less monthly income than in the West to support yourself, but that’s still a remarkable achievement.
Today I woke up to the crowing of a rooster in paradise. An hour later I was running alongside the rice fields of Bali, enjoying the unbelievable views and the friendly farmers who called out good morning, “selamat pagi!”
When I got back home I took a quick dip in the pool and then feasted on Papayas and Mangoes, getting ready to start another day of the work I love, writing about raw foods and health at my website, raw-food-health.net
But being able to do what I love, in the midst of one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, is not something I was born to.
Up until May of 2010 I was a newspaper reporter working sometimes-strange hours for not much money in Connecticut. I loved the job most of the time, but it was stressful and, frankly, I hate being told what to do, no matter how good the boss is.
At the beginning of 2008 I saw an endorsement for Site Build It and decided to give it a try. I’d healed my colitis and reclaimed my life with raw foods, and I decided that spreading that message to others was valuable contribution that I could make.
And so in my spare time I started working, and, bit by bit, like a building taking shape against the skyline, I turned my knowledge into a huge resource for anyone looking to improve their health.
Although I hadn’t started it with profit in mind, by 2009 it was bringing me in a few hundreds bucks a month. I continued to work and my traffic continued to grow, and before long I’d put out an Ebook that began to sell well. Eventually I started offering raw food coaching consultations, paid advertising, and other services.
By May of 2010 I could see that I was already making a modest, mostly automated income that came in whether or not I continued to work on my site. I knew then that I had created a golden parachute for myself, and that I could leave my job.
I turned in my letter of resignation that month, and after wrapping up my affairs in the US, I touched down in Bali on December 1 of 2010.
I’m throughly enjoying living in paradise, but also realize that I’ve just skimmed the surface of my potential. My site is currently getting about 1,000 visitors a day, a sum that grows every month, and I realize that as long as I keep doing what I’m doing, things will only get better for me. I’ve got new ebooks and other services in the work, and eventually plan to make a second site.
I couldn’t have done all this without Site Build It, which provided me with the tools and step-by-step directions for making my golden parachute possible. Today I’m a free man, and I’ll never have to work for a boss again, unless I want to, of course.
It’s a glorious feeling, and if you’re interesting in carving out your own future, I suggest you give SBI a chance.
