Yahoo, here I come!

It all started...

At the end of September, when my husband crashed my computer. This wasn't the first time, but this time it was dead for good. I dreaded the thought of reworking all my business files and everything else that was on it. I was forced to use one of my kids' computers. I spend hours trying to get the old files organized and to entertain myself during the breaks, I checked out stuff on the Internet...

We have been in business for 10 years, my husband worked long hours, came home exhausted every night, I was up to my ears in paperwork most of the time. For months we have been talking about other possibilities of supporting the family.

While surfing the net one night, and weaving through the loads of get-rich-quick offers, I almost lost hope, that I can find something that will feel right. I had money put aside, I was ready to invest in my new venture, and still, after trying out several things that seamed right and talking to many internet gurus and entrepreneurs, I still could not find something right for me.

You see, I didn't want to just go blindly and get into some fly-by-night-scheme. I wanted something real, true and well established. Since I knew nothing about internet marketing, or even website building, I needed a program or an opportunity that would allow me to have as much control in the process as well as really support me in my endeavors. At that time I still didn't know what I was looking for...

That is until, one night I came across SBI! The information about the program was so incredible, I could not believe that it was true. It took me awhile to understand that the Site Build It!was for real. At first the amount of information included on their website was quite overwhelming. But I kept reading. After a while it all became clear in my mind. I knew that this was it. After months of searching, I found what I was looking for.

At that time I still didn't know what I will use the SBI! for. To my amazement, they helped me make the decision about the topic for my future site. At first, we thought that since we have such an incredible program, we should stick to what we know and develop a great site for our existing business.

Then, with help of SBI! Manager we discovered that that was not such a good idea. So we kept looking. Our love of skiing kept coming up, we spend at least 4 evenings at Blue Mountain each week. We travel a lot during winter, because of the "slow time" in construction industry. The choice was obvious. Winter-Vacations-Ontario.com was born.

It's still just a baby, but it is growing fast. And I'm confident, that with SBI! I can take it all the way to the top.
