Once again, I have to apologize for the delay in getting the lessons done. I’ve been very busy lately outside of my Internet marketing life, which is why I haven’t had a chance to post any new lessons in the past week.
I don’t feel the need to share everything I’ve got going on, but just to give you a taste…
I’m executive producing a CD and have been spending quite a bit of time in the recording studio. Also been busy with family stuff. A couple nights ago during the middle of our oldest daughter’s birthday party, our son fell and broke his arm. Those of you who are parents know how it hurts to see your kids get hurt.
Earlier this summer he broke his other arm, so now that he’s broken both of them I trust that he can live the rest of his life without needing to break any more!
So again sorry for the delay of the lessons, but rest assured I have NOT given up on the project. I will be finishing the series and posting each lesson as they are completed… I’ve just come to the realization that it will have to be at my own pace.
OK, so today I need to let you know about something cool.
Next month (October 10th-12th) the first ever Christian Internet Marketing seminar is going to happen!
(I know I have readers of many different faiths, so if this doesn’t apply to you, don’t get offended and just don’t worry about it.)
I think this is very exciting, because it’s something that the industry has needed for a long time. I’ve gone to several Internet marketing seminars over the past few years, and it seems like at every one of them someone says… “hey they should do something like this specifically for Christian marketers…”
But up until now it had been all talk, and nobody had taken the initiative to make it happen.
Now a young man by the name of Alejandro Reyes is making it happen. If you’re not familiar with Alejandro, he’s an up and coming marketing star who is becoming well known in the affiliate world, and made over $100k in his first year online.
He’s put together a fantastic lineup of teachers for the seminar, and it’s going to be a great event. The list of speakers includes Joel Comm, Jermaine Griggs, Jeff Mills, Paul Counts, Gary Zelesky, John Di Lemme, Ruddy Ortiz, Wade Tonkin, Jason Marshall, Sanyika Calloway, Monikah Ogando, and Eric Farewell… plus plenty of VIP’s in attendence.
PLUS… I’ll be there 🙂
I want to support this event, and I think there will be some great networking opportunities, so I’m planning of being there along with my wife.
When it comes to doing business, it’s great to be able to network and do joint ventures with “like minded” people.
Now don’t get the wrong idea…
Just because this is a “Christian” event, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a church service or something. It’s going to be packed full of REAL money making strategies to improve your business and your life.
Alejandro and the other teachers are truly passionate about helping you find success, and I think this is going to be a wonderful environment for you to learn in.
So it’s going to be a great event, but here’s where it gets even better…
It’s DIRT CHEAP!
I don’t think you will find a more affordable Internet marketing seminar of this caliber anywhere on the planet. So if you’ve been wanting to go to a seminar, but finances were holding you back, this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.
Just to give you some comparison…
One seminar that I’ve attended in the past a couple times is the Underground Seminar. I typically pay about $2,000 for my ticket to that seminar PLUS Yanik always picks hotels that are in the $200-$350/per night range.
The price of the Illuminate Christian Marketing Conference is a crazy $197 (price goes up at the end of the month), and the hotel rooms are only $129.
I’m telling you, that’s as cheap as it gets.
I encourage you to take a closer look and reserve your spot at:

After this, I will not be going to any more seminars this year, so this would be a great chance for us to meet and you can ask me any questions that you may have about Internet marketing.
I would love to see you there.
Have a great day!
A simple observation. I have a role in the US Govt. that studies the written word. A few people are correct in saying that religion is divisive. What they aren’t saying, which is clear in the tone, is that it is being used as an excuse. In this case, it is clear these people are using it as a crutch. A crutch to fail, to derail, underachieve, or whatever is making them unhappy. Don’t let anyone take your beliefs, keep doing what you do(which we are all getting for free may I remind everyone) and the rest will work itself out. Like the one woman above said, she’s unsubscribing. GOOD, it’s like TV, don’t like it, change the channel. You are doing great things out of a kind heart. Christian or not you are a good person.
Again, thanks for all your great help. One problem though… I signed up for webhosting with HostGator, but am unable to get the WYSIWYG component going. I guess that’s the Phatastic part?
Anyway, I’ve successfully used the StartLogic hosting process and several other on free sites. I’m not an expert, but have been able to produce with the others.
Am I missing the obvious here? Believe me, I’ve tried multiple times… and am ready to get things really under motion.
Or perhaps you’ll cover that in the next session?
Thanks for listening and helping.
I like much your blog. Thanks for the good advice.
I wish I would have known about that in advance. I would have loved to go!
THANKS, ANITA IN TEXAS
P.S. my son broke his arm too!
P.S. How do I get COPYSCAPE?
P.S.S. — I wouldn’t apologize for inviting people to a christian internet mktg seminar anymore than I’d apologize to someone about going to church!
If anyone wants to unsubscribe, that’s fine. Less competition for me and my websites.
yes next year!
This Lesson and it’s posts are very intereesting. Eric keep up the good work and never mind the negative posts. Most of these people are scared to death of what awaits them but are so wrapped up in this world that they try their best to excape their destinies by tringing to deny others theirs. Will be praying for you brother. In Christ I pray!
It was the summer of 2007 when God started placing a burden for orphans and needy people on our hearts. In fact, Eric came home from work one day and said, “I am getting sick of this greedy, selfish, busy culture that we live in. I want to sell everything we have and move overseas to start an orphanage. Get out of this Godless society and start doing things that will matter for eternity.” Obviously, we didn’t do that, yet!
However, we had the opportunity to have dinner with Eric’s Uncle Tom and Aunt Marilynn, who are missionaries in South Africa, during Christmas of 2007. We discussed our desires to sell everything and start an orphanage overseas. When we were finished, they asked us if we knew anything about the Milton Hershey School in Hershey, PA (http://www.mhs-pa.org). Until that time, we didn’t know anything about it.
The Milton Hershey School is a cost-free, private, co-educational home and school for children from families of low income, limited resources, and social need. The School is funded by a trust established by Milton S. Hershey and his wife Catherine. Milton Hershey School offers a positive, structured home life year-round and an excellent pre-kindergarten through 12th grade education. Their vision focuses on building character and providing children with the skills necessary to be successful in all aspects of life.
Their students live on campus and are on a year-round program. So the student home and house parents, married couples, are at the core of each child’s stability and safety while they are here. The house parents provide guidance, support, and discipline while encouraging contact with the children’s parents/sponsors through phone calls, e-mail, and visits.
Eric and I had to see the school for ourselves, so we contacted Tom and Marilynn’s supporters, who are house parents at the school, and decided to go down and visit them. So we met John and Dorris Eisenhower and the girls in their student home. After the first visit, Eric and I felt like this was the place God wanted us to be. We kept looking on-line for an opening for house parents and in June of 2008 there was a job posting. We applied, excitedly, but were informed the following day that everything looked good, but our kids were too young. The school wanted the oldest child to be 5 years old or older.
Confused and lost to why God had placed this burden on our hearts but not allowing us to do anything about it yet was getting frustrating for the both of us. A few months went by and in September of 2008, God began to open up other doors of opportunity. By this time, we were in full swing of looking for a different job for Eric.
Soon thereafter, a network marketer shared with Eric a home based business opportunity that he felt God strongly lead him to accept. As we joined and explored the idea more, God began to show us that this was going to be one of the “how” or “means” He wanted us to use to fund things that He would place on our heart.
It was also at this time that God revealed the “what” to us. As we began to see the potential of making a significant income with this company God began to place on Eric and my heart to fund an orphanage. So we began to pray in this direction.
Surfing the web one day, God brought me to the Home Business Success Academy. This program offered quality training to successfully market anything on and off the net. Somehow I knew this was truly the tool God placed in my hands to be successful in our business.
As we began to work through my classes I started to realize the vast possibility and responsibility God was placing on our laps! God was showing me an avenue to make unbelievable amounts of money! I grew excited and wanted to share my buried treasure with Christians who had the same passion and desire. On February 6, 2009 God led me to create a facebook group called Build On The Rock Ministries to unite Christians together that shared the same vision and desire that God had placed on our heart to build, run, and empower people to construct Christian orphanages, clinics, feed hungry children, and fund “humanly impossible deep desires.
Build On The Rock Ministries was set up for people of action. It is a safe place where they can share the dreams God has placed on their heart and have the opportunity to give financially or be the one we will be sending. It is a group that prays and encourages each other with scripture. This group also promotes this group to their friends that have the same desires and gives out information to all their friends and family that will enable us to construct and empower the “Build On The Rock Ministries” projects. As of May 11, 2009 the Build On The Rock Ministries have 292 members and continue to add members daily. Since then, God has led us to incorporate this ministry and set it up as a non-profit organization, which we are now in the process of doing . On April 20, 2009 we appointed the following 6 members to be our administrative committee to keep us accountable and to help give us ideas and wisdom on all our decisions.
Our new mission statement is this: Whereas, it is the expressed by God in His Word, that “Pure and faultless religion is to look after orphans and widows in their distress” James 1:27. In accordance to this, He commands and empowers us, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”Mark 16:15 and “To preach good news to the poor, bind up the broken hearted, proclaim freedom to captives!” Isaiah 61:1
With this being our foundational motive, the members of Build On The Rock Ministries, are enjoined to assemble themselves together to globally empower Christians to construct and maintain Christian children’s homes and coeducational institutes that will spiritually nurture homeless children through the age of 18 years of age with the Word of God and educate these children in a social, mental, physical, and financial need so that they can lead a fulfilling and productive life. These projects will be funded by grants, fundraising projects and personal donations.
As of May 17th, 2009 Eric and I have not seen much success in our online endeavors to yet share with anyone a honest key to unlock the online treasure. However, Eric and I have set up a home based business called, BuiltOnTheRock, LLC and have just opened our first kid’s furniture store online htt://firstkidsfurniture.com We believe and pray that this will be one of the means that God will use to bring Eric home so we can full time focus on funding building projects that God places on our heart.
Currently we are upgrading our furniture store and seeking to add some products. However, we want to bless other christians who have the same burden and desire God has given us.
We are looking for spirit filled christians who offer affliate programs or wholesalers that offer kids furniture, kids resources, kids educational books, …just about anything that has to do with kids.
If you know of anyone who would be interested in any christian who would be a good partner to our need email us at email@example.com
Thanks God bless!
Eric–Sorry about your son. I copied your family pic. Have waited for response to the 40 software programs for $97. I’ve had problems with my computer and if your staff tried to download, that’s the reason I’m in the ‘CAN’T REACH FILE.’however, it’s my birthday today – and i’ want to take advantage on the trading pro system. i’ll leave a message for you – please accept my apology for my ‘creative’ approach. I respect your pricacy.
Any comment on the ‘BELIEF MANIFESTO’ INTRO.?
Eric, I’m happy to know that my mentor is a Christian. I am a local pastor of the Church of the Nazarene in the Province of Iloilo, Philippines. God bless.
