Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Happy Thanksgiving! I know that only about half of Eric’s Tips readers are in the USA, but gratitude transcends all borders.

First, I want everyone reading this to know that I’m thankful for YOU. Without you, Eric’s Tips would not exist.

Here’s a free gift as a token of my appreciation. It’s a 111 page ebook that I recently had ghostwritten on the topic of freelancing. I know the contents are great, because it was written by one of my freelance ghostwriters who has been working for me for many years. In other words, she was writing on her topic of expertise. It is brand new and has never been released before.

You get to download it for free today WITH Master Resale Rights. This would be a helpful book for anyone who is interested in making money as a freelancer (especially as a freelance writer). You can also sell the ebook or add it as a bonus to any product.

Something I’m thankful for…

I recently had the privilege of visiting India again. I’m thankful that my children got to experience another culture. I’m thankful for all the ways I am blessed, including the opportunity to help others. I’m amazed by all of the beautiful things I was able to see, but most of all by the people. I would like to share some pictures I snapped of these beautiful people in cities, villages, and slums…
















Some of these pictures serve as a reminder to be thankful for what we have. Others demonstrate that joy transcends circumstances. We’ve all got something to be thankful for.

Please post a comment below and let us know what you’re thankful for 🙂

Have a great day and a happy Thanksgiving!

    I thank God for you Eric. I have tried my hand in internet marketing this past few years but only managed to meet crap dealers. I believe that you are sincere and trustworthy. You may just be the internet marketing “messiah” that I have been looking for!

  2. Bob

    I am thankful for the freedom and prosperity we enjoy here in the USA and for the beauty of this country and it’s people.

  3. Shannon

    Beautiful photos! Happy Thanksgiving Eric and family 🙂

  4. Carl

    I am thankful for friends, family and ancestors wise enough to leave to me freedom as an inheritance. Thank you so much to people we have never seen but owe so much gratitude.

    Thank God for everything i’ve already mentioned above and everything else.

  5. Stephanie

    Stunning photographs! And thank you for the book!

  6. Tony Scarangella

    I am thankful for my wife and family. I married her more than 45 years ago and we are blessed with two sons, two daughters, two grandsons and three granddaughters. I got to enjoy welcoming each of these precious children into the world and I loved their childhood years (even though they they flew by too quickly). I have known you (via email) for many years and you turned out to be a GIVER. Many of the emails I receive are only there to earn money for the sender but you give freely. I always read “Eric’s Tips” and there’s always very good information there, totally free and they read like you’re right here, talking to me! I’ve been watching you and your family over the years and I envy you for the good works you do and it’s wonderful to see the pleasure you receive in return. The example you set is great.
    So, I will continue to love my wife, my children & grandchildren and the rest of the family and knowing you and your family, even if only via email. Thank you very much for being Eric Holmlund.

  7. Jaona

    I am thankful for God’s grace!

  8. Stef

    I am thankful for having a nice family, good children and health. We are not wealthy, but money isn’t all in life as we can see in you beautiful pictures, even if a bit more would be appreciated.

  9. Calvin

    Thanks for being one of the few internet marketers I can truly trust. I look forward to getting your emails, because I know that everything you have to offer is going to be helpful and something I can offer to others with confidence! Keep the faith and train up your children to be just like you. That way, we can look forward to getting information like yours for a long, long time!!

  10. Tony Bartlett

    I’m thankful for My existence, health, my family, friends & to treat everybody as i like to be treated myself.

  11. June

    I am thankful for God’s love, grace and faithfulness despite a very difficult and challenging year. This year I struggled working in a new department with a new boss, traveling longer on the road to a new office, dealing with tremendous stress caring for my dying mum and coping with the passing away of my aunt whom I love dearly. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 BOOKS)
    Thank you God for seeing me through the storm:)

  12. francis

    I am thankful for this ability to connect with a real and honest IM expert like you, Eric and others who provide good information in the vast internet world. I really appreciate that you take your stand and make a difference as info providers. And though I’m not from US (from the Philippines) i still find it amazing that I can just share thoughts and also learn from similar minded people, as if I’ve met you all personally. 🙂

  14. Don

    I’m thankful for my family. We had many of them here today for the first time. It was great spending the day together.

  15. John

    I am thankful for the gifts God has given me; one of them for sure being my family and where we are. The pictures posted really put things in perspective, and thankful for what God has done. Also, thank you Eric for everything that you have taught and sharing the life/business lessons to which we can learn from.

  16. Vasile Holerga

    I am thankful for the training center for poor youths that God helped us to build this year here in Romania. I am thankful for my teenagers because they accepted the challenge of living by faith and after 2 years of rainbows and storms they still respect us, continuing to accept the adventure of faith in our lives.

  17. Tricia

    I am thankful I live in a beautiful free country (Australia) where the weather is gorgeous and the people down to earth. I am thankful that I have met amazing & reputable people from this magic that is “The Internet” such as you Eric. I have learnt so much from you just by reading your emails (not to mention having bought a few things which I must say you are so generous with in your pricing). God Bless to all and while we down here in Oz don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (It’s all done on Christmas Day here), I wish everyone who does, Happy Thanksgiving. Tricia.

  18. Sharon Dixon

    I am thankful most of all for my relationship with God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Every day I thank God for the interne,t which gives me many ways to bring increase. Like you, I want to bring in more and more dollars so I can further God’s Kingdom on this earth. The internet is such an awesome vehicle on so many levels. Thanks for being one of the “good guys.” Your integrity is a blessing.

  19. marix

    I am thankful and grateful that God has blessed me with, my husband, kids and all of my friends. Sometimes I pray for some things that i don’t have, things that i really want to have, but I am thankful that I already have the things that i need..
    i am thankful for my marriage even though it’s not perfect but the Lord has blessed us with so much love for each other. I am thankful for my children’s little achievements at their very young age.
    I am thankful for my parents, because every time i visit them sometime during weekends with my kids, they still are both strong.. and even there are no occasions, they use to give me something like they will cook for me and the kids.. that make me feel “yes, I am already a mother but my mama can still give me something because I used to be her little girl before..” awhh.. ” she’s so sweet.
    I am thankful because i am searching the internet on how to create an extra income through online and now i believe that the Lord let me found this site that have so many things new to me that i can learn with.
    Very thankful for everything maybe good or bad because I believe all things happened for a reason… 🙂

    I want to thank you and are thankful to God, we managed to get over a head surgery in 2006. I am grateful that I was able to have a family was wonderful and can take care of my grandchildren. Therefore I do not forget to help those in need, whenever I can. I am grateful even if I helped someone to make a deal with my money that I took from the bank and she forgot to pay my bank rates. I am pleased that we managed to meet special people on the internet as Carol Amato and her friends and consider them as mine. You Eric Holmlund as Adrienne Smith, Kevin Duncan, Anna Hofman, Kim Garst, Nan Akasha, Ella Klassen, Nataliya Piterova and many, many others .. are people I can count on me.
    I regret that I do not have a website now was the time to buy hosting from you, but let’s see, maybe by Monday, I succeed to register a website.

    Hi to everyone from Adelaide in South Australia. We do not have a Thanks Giving observance down here but we should. Australia has a lot to be thankful for & it’s wonderful to know that the USA has created such a wonderful day to celebrate THANKS! While you all shiver in the northern hemisphere with record snow falls, all of us down here are sweltering in record heat never before seen before Summer has even started! I start my day withh CNN to keep up to date with what you are all up to!
    I accidentally ‘found’ Eric’s tips last year and like so many others of you who follow him I am so very grateful to have found the lessons he teaches with his honest approach & integrity. After so many disappointments with so much we ‘newbies’ are blasted with every day, it is comforting to know that Eric & his team are out there making sure we can still trust & keep faith that the human spirit and all that goes with it is alive & kicking! This is MY THANKS GIVING to you Eric and the beautiful family you share with all of us who follow you…HAPPY THANKS GIVING 🙂

    Blessings, my friend.

The internet has so many people that want to dig deep into our pockets and leave us with nothing but empty promises, then I found your site. What a breath of fresh air, someone that actually wants to help someone else succeed, and is a brother in Christ besides!! I thank you and your team for what you are doing to help us “newbies” get a start in IM, I for one am very thankful to have someone that is trust worthy and can be sure of the content that is passed on.to me.
