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 šŸ™‚

Have a great day and a happy Thanksgiving!

    Dear Eric,
    We have not meet but I feel as if I know you. I have begun my journey into the internet world at the age of 59. I have been through so many things in life some good, some bad. As time passes we each experience life in our own way. I lost my wonderful wife in the prime of her life 6 years ago. When the holidays come I get uncomfortable about how to act and what to say and in how other people react to me. I am writing today not for your thoughtful gift but to ask you should you pick this comment to donate to someone you may know who is need. I may not have much but I have more than some. You seem to have a wonderful family who you present to us from time to time. You are putting your self out here for us all to see. I commend you for that. I am now trying to take some of the things you are presenting to us and put it into practice. The shift from buyer to seller is a mind set. I hope to someday in the near future put all the parts together and be successful enough on line to be able to help others on a greater scale. Your pictures are heart felt and do send a powerful message. Keep up the good work and sharing your knowledge with us so we may all prosper in the up coming year.

    Hey Eric, it is a pleasure you are attaining a dream I had in these past years.

    It’s funny I have a heart for India too, after having read a book written by a famous Indian evangelist,
    I don’t remember his name, I just know how powerful is God’s autocton work there.

    I also hope to go there one day soon.
    Beautiful pics! Now I cooperate with an opera singer who actually established a school in India.

    We are looking for contacts in the USA to perform Christian songs and ballet in a professional way
    for churches and big stages. I can write you privately for this, since there’s a serious chance that we can meet!!!

    I appreciate your work and btw here in Italy you are renowned and appreciated everywhere in the web. I mean , the top infomarketers here know you and highly estimate your work.

    I always remember you and look for meeting you and your family as well, for internet, dance, performances, workshops, mission reasons, whatever God will lead us to.

    Hope for you all the best and bless you!!! Thanks for writing!

    Look their face! I can the sorrow, anxiousness, povervty and the brilliant happiness. Their joy is full, simple and honest. And I also find our God on their face!
    Have a great day and happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for sharing your pictures!

    Thanks Eric for the eBook on freelancing and for your tips. Actually I used to delete your emails until one day when I decided to open one of them and found the content amazing. You can’t really blame when I have hundreds of “amateur” Internet marketers trying to sell me one bogus offer or the other.

    Though I’m not an American, I can identify with the word “thanksgiving” as a Christian. It’s one of those activities we do every two weeks before new years eve to thank God for his goodness and mercies.

    Again, thank you for the pictures as it reminds me that here on earth, our whole essence of existence should be to help those in need in any way we can no matter how small. Secondly, those smiles is an indication of thanksgiving despite adverse circumstances faced by these people.

    I think those in developed countries should learn a thing or two from these pictures. It’s amazing how easily they contemplate suicide at the slightest challenge when people with real issues are smiling.

  5. Scott White

    I am thankful for family,without them I would not be the person I am today.

  7. Dan Kessler

    I am so happy and grateful now that every cell in my body is easily vibrating in harmony with God’s laws and that I am getting healthier and stronger every moment of every day. I am so happy and grateful now for all that I have and for all that is coming to me. I am so happy and grateful now for my wife and kids and family and friends and how blessed we are every moment to breathe and open our eyes every morning as we sail the great oceans of space and time so that we can experience the wonders of this universe. I am so happy and grateful now that I can give back in whatever amounts I can to help those less fortunate than me. I am so happy and grateful now that whomever reads this comment will be touched by the white healing light of the Universe that is bringing more happiness, joy, abundance and peace into your life. And so be it.

    I am very thankful for being able to live in Costa Rica, my vacation rental business and its wonderful guests, all the people who have been working for us, our friends of some new ones and old ones, the freedom to do whatever I want to do and whenever I want to do, all the love from the family, friends and God, ability to learn and experience new things, being able to meet new people, and the best of all that we are all children of God.

  10. Cindy

    I feel like one of those people in India, Guess I look like it too

  11. Ibrahim Jibrin

    I am thankful for the gift of life. All around me, I am surrounded by things to be grateful for.
    The air I breath, the water I drink,the sunshine,the wind,the soil,the rain,the people, my family as well as my friends.

    I am immensely grateful for my job, my education, my awareness, my values and my ideas.
    Indeed, God has been kind to me. I have no reason to be sad.

  12. Jessie L. Dudley

    I am so thankful for God’s mercy and kindness to me and my family.
    He has given so many of us long life and good health. Good health
    is so valuable. Health is one of the gifts in salvation. God has
    committed Himself to never leave or forsake us who believe.
    Mercy is undeserved favor.

  13. Anthony Warren

    I am grateful for having a second chance at life after a devastating paralyzing stroke took almost everything including my business, my mobility, my self-esteem and almost my life. I am grateful for: God, for the love and care I received to be able to recover, be able to walk, play football with my family and finding those who are generous in helping me to regain and exceed previous successes!

  14. Don Karp

    Here is what I am most thankful for–living in the mountains of Tepoztlan, Mexico.

  15. Patrick


    I am thankful that I have come across this website and to now be connected with someone who shares similar values.

    Also, I’m thankful to have been born here in the United States and to have the opportunity to accomplish my dreams. Of course, to whom much is given, much is required.

    I’m thankful for faith and a hope in this life, and in the world to come.

    I am thankful for growing up in a Christian home in a free country, and for immeasurable daily joys and mercies. Thank you, Eric, for helping people learn about internet marketing and being an example of how to do it with integrity. –Pamela G.

  17. Ken

    I’m thankful for my family, who’s patience has been unwavering while I get a handle on Internet Marketing and of course, Gurus like you, that take the time to share experience and knowledge to aid in my success. God Bless.

  18. Mark

    I have been struggling with internet marketing for a couple years now and have been disillusioned by some of the practices that go on, but I am grateful to know there are people like you, with integrity and solid Christian beliefs, that make it work. It gives me hope to know it can work legitimately. Thanks for all you do, both online and off.

  21. william manuel

    I am thankful for having a incredible son who makes my life special!

  22. robertcollins

    Born as we all are into our circumstances running around through our lives looking for happiness – the type of happiness we can see brimming from the eyes and smiles of the people in your photos. What joy! I am thankful for this life, and those moments when I too feel the joy of our existence and shared humanity where love wells inside me and compassion for others and myself brings me to tears. Aside from pondering this amazing existence in all its complexity, survival in this money dependant world requires a never ending source of income (agreed?) to live and to have the means for good deeds. I think I have found a genuine person in you to help me to help myself and others (at long last!) Thank goodness for that and indeed I am thankful for you and your training. Where would anyone be without the help of others? where would the world be without love? So I think that is what I am most thankful for, Love. I think the trick is to hold that love dearly in our minds help others to love and grow that love or help those not so lucky, trapped by their thoughts in bitterness and regret, help them to learn to love and grow our common humanity into a planet of love. Not everone has the best of circumstances but I know that the best I have felt is when I have given to others and that comes from love. I’m getting carried away now lol so thank you for allowing me to think what I am grateful for, its still love, love to all.
    Kindess Regards Robert Collins.

  23. Jim Bob Howard

    I’m thankful for the honor and privilege to sponsor three children in India through Compassion. I always enjoy reading about the work you do there. Lord willing, I’d love to join you one of these days.

  24. Jaime

    I am Thankful for finding Eric. I have been searching for someone honest. In todays modern world of technology it is hard to find honest folks who are sincere. I have traveled and seen real 3rd world countries in their real living conditions and their best as well. Nothing compared to the USA or UK. I appreciate the US of A everyday. Take it not for granted. Eric seems thus far honest and sincere. Reading comments about him by others he seems to be the real deal. I am a newbie in IM and have tried other internet programs and have not been impressed with their support. So compared to them thus far Eric is a shining hope to me. I am going to give it my all and I have confidence in Eric that he will live up to what others say about him. So far I am impressed as he speaks of family values, something not heard of with other marketers. So I am thankful for me and my family have come across Eric giving us a path and opportunity to succeed and maybe have our life dreams realized. Thank You and God Bless you and your Family Eric.

  25. Grandpa Bill

    It’s been a lo-o-o-ng time since lesson 92. When are you going to get back to them?

  26. Kevin Griffith

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you so much for your generosity and for giving us the gift of the ebook. You’re a very giving person and always have been. I’ve been following you for many years and am thankful that I managed to get on your list somewhere along the way in my internet travels.

    I really appreciate your willingness to openly share your faith as you teach people how to make a living on the internet. I’m also amazed at the heart you have for mission work and all that you’ve done for people around the world through your mission work. It’s clear through your efforts that you do your mission work at a lifestyle and that’s something I also appreciate.

    I know God will continue to bless your business efforts and all of your work as you continue to give Him the credit for what you’ve accomplished and continue to accomplish. You’ve been blessed with a wonderful family too and I know you’re thankful for them as well. I’m also very thankful for my family, my wife of 24 years and our two sons who are doing an amazing job of living their lives for the Lord. I realize how blessed I am, every day of my life.

    Thank you for giving so much of yourself and your resources to your readers and followers. God Bless you and your family.

    Keep up the great work and Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am Thankful for my son that was born this year. Thanks to you, Eric, for your work and offers. Blessings to all!

  31. Leslie Denning

    I know I’m a few days late, but wanted to throw my gratitude on the nice warm pile. Sixteen years ago, our first grandchild, was shaken by her father at 3 months. The doctors predicted that she would be blind and retarded due to the severity of her injuries. It was a terrible few years for our family as we helped our daughter through divorce, family court, criminal court, therapy for the baby, social services – you just can’t imagine how your life can be turned upside down in a moment.

    Our granddaughter is now heading toward 17, and she is the light of our lives. Although she has numerous learning disabilities due to the shaking, she can see, walk and talk, read and write, sing, bake a cake, babysit her younger brother and sisters,. We thank God almost every day that his healing hand has been upon her.

    I have many, many things that I thank God for every day, but she is at the top of my gratitude list.

    And NEVER, EVER shake a baby. Just put him in the crib, shut the door and walk away if the crying is making you crazy.

  32. Robert Doyle

    I am very thankful for my family, job, and business. I am lucky enough to live in a country and time where I can chase and accomplish my dreams and goals. Thank you for letting me share.

  33. Gwen Riase

    I am grateful for the mission that I have been given to help people understand how money really works. I help people get out of debt and begin to live happy lives.

  34. Sy Burth

    I like the way you always seem to stress family, and values. I like the way you seem not to want to follow the traditional guru path of showing off, though you are quite financially capable. I am thankful for all these things, and wish that many will come to appreciate Christ in all of this, and will find Him attractive in their lives.

  35. Daniel Ong

    I’m grateful for having good health and happy mind. I’ll always try my best to do good to the needy and unfortunate.

  36. C

    Hi Eric, I have lots to be thankful for even through our struggles.
    Should this be one of your emails picked, do not send any money.
    Match the amount and send to kids that are hungry and need it..
    All the best.

  37. RobertDiz & Arlyn

    Its more than all I can say, to my wife, God, and family and thanks Eric…We are truly grateful.

  38. Soumen Ghosh

    Hi Eric !
    I am from India, where you just visited. If you give me a chance I would love to meet you when next time you visit our coutry. It may sound something unusual to you, but at least at this moment I want to thank you first on behalf of my Indian brothers and sisters. I am reseliing your video lessons in the name of No Cost Income Stream 2.0 . I is not important how much money do I make by selling those videos, but is important that my brothers and sisters are beifitted from the course. You deserve those thanks.
    Hope to meet you next time.

    Hi Eric, I can see by the comments and by reading about your past that you are a great guy, and a lot of people have put their faith in you.
    I know through experience that this can be a rewarding and yet, quite difficult position to be in. It takes a lot of internal fortitude to not only meet the demands of so many others but to also measure up to our own.

    All the Best to you and your family this coming Christmas and in the New Year!

    1. Jeff
