Lessons In Leadership

Gaining Your Independence
Is A Realistic Goal Using SBI

"The biggest mistake people make in life is NOT making a living at doing what they most enjoy."
- Malcolm S. Forbes

Dear Readers,

If you live in America, July 4th is a very special holiday. It’s INDEPENDENCE DAY!

We thought it quite fitting to release this Special Edition of our newsletter just in time for you to learn how to become more independent in the coming year, and indeed, for the rest of your life.

No, we are not just talking about independence in the financial sense, although that is definitely one of the outstanding results you might experience. Rather, when we talk about gaining true independence, we speak mostly about the benefits of finally being able to spend the majority of your time working on what you are truly passionate about.

We’ve mentioned often on our website, and in our newsletter, about the power of using Site Build-It (SBI) to create a profitable online business working in your spare hours. As you may know, that has been my own experience and I am so thankful that I have discovered SBI only 4 short years ago – it’s quite literally been a life-changing experience for me and my family.

If you are reading this and you or someone you know, desire to:

  • Retire With Dignity - Knowing for a fact that your resources will not run out, regardless of how long you and your spouse live.
  • Go to College/University - Paying for tuition, books and living expenses as you go, in effect, avoiding the debt-trap that our society has come to expect from it’s students and future workforce.
  • Work From Home - Contributing once again to your family household income, while still enjoying the luxuries of being a stay-at-home mom or dad (the most noble of occupations in my opinion)

  • Pursue Your Passion - Finally going after the dream that you once had, that for whatever reason somehow got lost in all of the day-to-day responsibilities. LIFE-HAPPENS to us all, but we no longer have to let life get in the way of going after our dreams.

Again, to be clear here, I’m NOT advocating SBI solely as a means to chase after money. That’s not it at all. In fact, it’s been my experience that if your main motivation is simply to make money, you will end up being a very unhappy person, who may or may not have a lot of money.

The more important questions we must ask ourselves include:

  1. Why do I want to have the money? What’s my real passion or purpose?
  2. What do I want to create and/or achieve from the use of the money-streams I create?
  3. What’s the feeling I wish to experience, and share with those I love, once I’ve reached my goal?

Personal fulfillment comes from creating something out of nothing; having a vision, a goal, that gets you excited; knowing that with enough time, effort and resources, you could make that dream into a reality that people will enjoy and benefit from long after you are gone.

It’s that “magic” that happens once you finally get determined to do something special; to be somebody of vision; to go well beyond your present situation or circumstance.

Fulfillment comes from leaving a legacy that your children and grandchildren will be proud of.

Can SBI make that happen for you? Actually, only YOU can make that happen for you. However, SBI is a tool that you can use to begin pursuing your passion.

In the process, you’ll be creating a brand new revenue stream that will continue to grow, just as your business grows - and just as YOU will grow.

PLUS, it’s fun! No, I’m NOT saying it’s easy. Actually, it is a lot of work – any REAL business takes work. However, something funny I’ve learned about “work” is, when you are doing something you love, it doesn’t feel like work. The time passes so quickly because you are highly engaged in doing something that you are passionate about, that you enjoy, something that makes you – well, a BETTER you!

SBIr’s come from all around the globe. They are people, just like you and I, who possess a strong will and desire to do more, to be more, to learn and grow. The proof is really in checking out the sites they’ve created. I’ve included their web addresses by their names below.

Check them out!

"I realized that since I live in a relatively remote place I could attract clients from around the world on the Net. The rest, they say, is history." - Audrey from

"I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did." - Tomaz from

"I've discovered new things that I'm truly passionate about...and I'm slowly turning those into SBI sites." - Ann from

"...once I had it I realised that I hadn't understood what it offered. I had understood maybe 20% of it, and that alone had seemed well worth the price." - B from

"I can use this (first SBI! site) as a scratchpad to learn what works and what doesn't, and then do it better sometime in the future. Well, it's now been a year and my scratch pad ain't doing too bad." - Leon from

"I've never once regretted it. All I do know is look forward." - Michael D from

"So this time of year 24 months ago, I held my heart in my hands and just JUMPED IN.... and I have never been happier.... now I 'DO' SBI full time and basically "play" the rest of the time..." - Helene from

"SBI was one of the best decisions I have ever made, moving over here to Perth, Australia was another great decision and has given me the content for my SBI site and a future working for myself." - Sharon from

The above testimonials represent real people who are experiencing real success, just like myself, and just like you could be experiencing very shortly – IF you take action and get started.

No, this doesn’t require a major investment. This is all about starting out small, working the system, and developing a successful online business over time. A business that creates value to others - something you’ll be proud of.

In the next section, we’ll talk about a Free Teleconference that’s taking place in the next few days… and guess what? As one of our subscribers, YOU ARE INVITED, and it costs you absolutely nothing!

But what will it cost you in lost opportunity if you do not attend? Hmmm?

See you in the next section.

To Your Success,
Richard Gorham

Meeting for Results

Name Your Dream, and Claim Your Right to Pursue it!

"Nothing happens until something moves."
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Okay, so what’s this teleconference all about and why should you care?

Well, I can certainly tell you about the free teleconference, and I will right away. As for “why should you care?”, I can’t answer that, only you can. Odds are that if you have to ask that question, this isn’t for you and you might want to delete this entire newsletter from your desktop.

Seriously, if you have no real desire to learn about how a successful online business works or how you and your family might benefit, then this probably isn’t for you. No big deal, I’ll see you again next month in our next edition.

Are you still here? Oh good, then let’s move on with details about the free SBI teleconference.

Judd Burdon is another successful online entrepreneur and fellow SBI’r. Judd is the Asphalt KING. That is, his website is named Therefore, he must be the Asphalt King, right?

Anyway, Judd makes thousands of dollars every month from just this one website (he has several sites) and he is one of the SBI experts that I often look too for guidance and support.

Fortunately for me, he has always been very gracious and willing to help me out. Once again, I decided to call upon Judd to help me establish this special teleconference, just for my loyal subscribers of Leadership Tools Monthly News.

Judd is one of those guys who has been able to turn a very labor intensive job (paving asphalt), into an online business that is very lucrative and personally rewarding as he now helps others develop their own asphalt paving businesses.

Judd Burdon - Asphalt KING!
As you can see from this picture, Judd is still working in the sun, but now he runs his online business from a home office while living on the beaches of Anguilla.

Not a bad gig you have their Judd!

If you’d like to read up on Judd, you can read his real-life case study at the link below:

SBI Case Studies, Judd Burdon’s and more!

As I was saying, the free teleconference will be hosted my both Judd and myself.

Our goal is simply to provide you with as much information as we can about SBI and how we’ve utitized SBI to create our online businesses. We will both make ourselves available to answer as many questions as possible.

Right about now you may be thinking, “What’s the catch?”, or “What’s this going to cost me?”, or “What’s this guy up to?”

That’s when I respectfully remind you that you subscribed to this newsletter because at some point you saw something on our website that spoke to you; something that made sense; something that made you decide that we were worth your time and that you’d like to see more of our quality content, free leadership tools and resources, etc. Right?

Okay then, just trust me. I’ve earned your trust to this point, and believe me when I tell you that I've assigned an extremely high value on that trust. I won’t let you down, I promise.

Here is where you let us know whether or not you are willing to invest an hour to learn more.

Go now to reserve your spot for the teleconference, ONLY 10 SPOTS REMAIN, and our subscriber base is over 2,000 now, SO HURRY. (Don’t worry, if we get more than 10, I’ll just beg Judd to set up a couple extra calls with me. But you need to act fast, okay?)

TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR THE FREE TELECONFERENCE, CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND FILL OUT THE SHORT RESERVATION FORM. This will put you on a special list and we will notify you very soon with details for the call. (eg, toll-free phone number, passcode, time, date, etc.) See you soon!


"SBIr’s have clearly traveled their own paths to SBI!, each different yet with so much in common. SBIr’s reveal their dreams and their pains, their hopes and their worries, and most importantly, they reveal what they wanted before finding SBI!. SBIr’s unashamedly tell us where they stumbled... how they got waylaid by sirens singing songs of riches, by hawkers spinning yet another Get Rich Quick scheme. While each course may vary, each story has a happy ending. Ultimately, they found SBI!. And THAT is a key point."
- Ken Evoy, President of Sitesell
