Update and some pictures

No lesson today. I just want to give a quick update on a few things, and show off some pics from my recent trip.

First I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the fundraiser/promotion that I ran while on vacation.

We raised 100% of our goal to provide a new water well for an orphanage in Uganda. Actually we exceeded the goal, so I am also sending them an additional donation. Through online fundraisers like this one, we have now given over $65,000 to various causes.

In case you’re interested, the orphanage is Eagles Wings Children’s Village and their US-based affiliate to which I am making the donation is Real Partners Uganda.

I also just got home from a “2nd honeymoon” with my beautiful wife of 11+ years. We’re expecting our 5th child later this year, so we wanted needed to get away for some alone time without the kids before the next one arrives.

It was our first time visiting Long Island in the Bahamas, and I do recommend it for anyone who wants a place with very few tourists and miles of secluded beaches. I also recommend Chez Pierre, which is a very affordable, rustic accommodation run by a French chef who served up awesome food all week. And while he does have Wi-Fi, I did not check my email or get online at all 🙂

Lastly, I want to invite you to join me in Orlando next month at JV Alert Live.

Edmondson, Ray Edwards, Mike Evans, Carl Galletti, Edie Galley, Michael Glaspie, Ross Goldberg, John Halpin, Mark Hendricks, Shel Horowitz, Michael Humphreys, Bob Jenkins, Audrey Kerwood, Sohail Khan, Tony Ladig, Walt Laurel, Simon Leung, Skye Mangrum, Jane Mark & Phil Basten, PJ McClure, Deb Micek, Daven Michaels, Melanie Milletics, Vin Montello, Joey Montez, Chris Moos, Chuck Mullaney, Cori Padgett, Scott Paton, David Perdew, Daniel Perry, Susan Preston, David Preston, Laura Roman Lopez, Roger (Wajed) Salam, Marlon Sanders, Thom Scott, Brad Semp, Felicia Slattery, Joey Smith, Frank Sousa, Erik Stafford, Howard Tiano, Jeff Wellman, Mike Wesely, Jess Kennedy Williams, and Bob Yeager, just to name a few!

It’s across the street from Disney World, so it’s a good opportunity to combine it with a vacation. I’ll be bringing my family.

I hope to see you there! It’s been three years since I’ve attended an Internet marketing seminar, so who knows when the next time will be.

As always, you are welcome to leave your comments below.

Have a great day!

    Wow!! Lovely, holiday destination. Sure does inspire! Lovely to see you’re having a new addition soon. Nothing like a large family. You both will be kept very busy. Keep up the good work, and may the delivery of your 5th, go with ease. He/She certainly has picked a delightful and loving family to grow up with!

    Look forward to reading and learning more from you.

    Love and Light

    stunning pics, the first one is surreal. Looks like you had an amazing time. Motivating me all the more to go somewhere that beautiful. Someday I will meet you and your wife in person at one of those jv meetings. By the way I don’t think I could eat those fish, they look like pets to me.

    Awesome pictures! Looks like you guys had a wonderful time! My wife and I try to get down to Cancun or Playa Del Carmen once a year to enjoy the “beach life”! You take some great pictures!

    As far as the JV Alert convention, I have never had the opportunity to go to one. I keep hearing about them all over the place all the time though. You may have just kicked it up a notch for me to try to get to one in the near future!

    Eric,
    I have your 10 free ebooks as well some others and was wondering if I could offer them on my website. I really do appreciate all you have to offer more than you know.

    I think some of them have giveaway rights and some do not. The best way to give away the 10 free ebooks is to log into your account at http://10-free-ebooks.com/download/login.php and get your affiliate link. Just send people to that link to download them, and then you have a chance of earning commissions too.

    Thanks so much. I do have the ones with resale rights. I’ll use those with AWeber.
    How do I promote you? I have a friend that promotes your newsletter and I would like to do the same from my website. I haven’t quite figured that one out yet.
    I am going through your training and would like others that are as lost as I was (until I found you by the way) have that opportunity as well.
    Thanks in advance, MO.

    The best way to promote me is to build up your own following of loyal readers/subscribers/fans, and then make a recommendation to them. I cover list building in lesson #59-70.

    You can promote Eric’s Tips as an affiliate, by posting links on your blog, etc. You can get your affiliate link here.
