Publisher's Note: I want to thank the many subscribers who have sent me articles from a magazine that has been using material from my book in their articles without giving credit. I have referred this matter to my lawyer.


Special 2-for-1 Holiday Offer

Looking for something to buy for that special someone? Give them a new life! An opportunity to earn extra money, quit their day job and work from home. This is the same system I've used for the past 8 years to build four online businesses. You don't have to be technically savvy to succeed. If you can type text into boxes in your browser, you can build a web site you can be proud of.

Introducing SBI, a suite of tools that lets you build an online business and teaches you how to build your business right. And now if you buy one for yourself, you can give one to someone else for free.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever dreamed of building their own online business. Great for:

  • work-at-home moms who want to be there to raise their children
  • professionals who are tired of working for the man and want to work from home
  • Retirees who want to explore their interests, share their passion with the world or supplement their social security income
  • Students who have a strong, entrepreneurial spirit and want to build a business that will support them through college and beyond, rather than spend their time flipping burgers.

    From now until Jan. 4, 2008, buy one SBI and you can get another one for free. SBI! is a steal even at its regular price, so this Buy-1-Get-1-Free promotion makes it the ULTIMATE deal.

    Hurry! This special offer ends midnight, January 4. Get it now!

    Parenting "Difficult" Children

    Parenting difficult children can be exasperating and overwhelming, but is an opportunity for parents to grow closer to children who they might not feel as bonded with, as they learn how to figure out what their children really need from them.

    In this article, I'll give you tips for raising what I lovingly refer to as "spirited children." (Spirited children are only "difficult" from a grownup's point of view.) As the mother of two children who can at times be quite spirited, my approach is multifaceted and includes increasing one-on-one time, setting firm limits, using behavioral tools (sparingly) and administering supplements that support brain health.

    Teach Your Kids How to Manage Finances

    Payjr is an online allowance and chore system for kids. The program is a tool that helps parents manage chore charts and allowances. Once a child turns 13, Payjr offers the optional PAYjr Visa Buxx Card, which allows parents to electronically move money to their teen with the click of a button, then view expenditures and card activity, giving parents peace of mind about how their kids are spending. Teens love the fact that they can upload pictures and design their own card.

    Still paying your teen with cash? Try the PAYjr Visa Buxx Card with no sign-up fee and enjoy the convenience of electronic allowances. Also, check out the link if you're looking for a great way to keep track of children's chores. It's an excellent system for kids and parents.

    I hope you enjoyed this issue.

    Until the next issue,
