With this next SBI!er, I knew I'd have lots to talk about besides how we earn money at home using SBI!. I was about to meet Kirby - the SBI! Guitar Guru from www.learn-kenny-chesney-guitar.com.
And we sure did have lots to talk about besides SBI!.
I even convinced Kirby to do a little music video in my campervan. He didn't want to at first, but I told him that it was like going on the road :-) That did the job.
Kirby teaches guitar on his site. He actually teaches far more than just Kenny Chesney songs. On his site he's got a library of over a hundred tutorials of some of the most popular songs. He gets a lot of new requests on a daily basis. Kirby also sells custom-made DVDs of his tutorials. He's been very successful with selling the DVDs and it's a neat way to earn money at home.
What's so great about Kirby's videos is that they are so personal and not intimidating like many other instructional vids. He does a great job of adding his own special flavor, he's down to earth and comes across as very sincere and likeable, especially to someone like me who's scared to death to try out some of the stuff that's there.
And Kirby can expand to so many different directions with this niche that it's just endless. He better hurry up, though. Once I finish going over his tutorials and I become a Kirby-certified guitar master, I could open my own guitar site and use it to earn money at home ;-)
Kirby retired from the military and bumped into SBI! not long thereafter. Soon (if not already) he will probably earn more money from his SBI! site than his military pension :-)
It's funny to think of Kirby as a retiree. He's not even 50 and looks way younger. And, he's also a grandfather!
Luckily, I don't need to worry about pensions and retiring.
You see, I retired in 1991.
I was 21 at the time. :-)
I had just completed my military service and was eager to discover the world. I caught a severe case of the travel bug and it was only eight years later when I finished my retirement and "settled" down to get married and start a family.
Now, having already retired, I have all my life to work and earn money at home...
I have been fortunate to discover SBI! early on in my life so when I get old, my sites will serve as my pension plan. And, if I build my sites correctly, they'll also be around and making money when my own grandchildren retire :-)
The next day I was to meet one of the most successful SBI!ers. I thought it would be this brawny guy that walks around with a tool belt. Was I in for a surprise...

"Your Letters to Me..."
"I originally discovered your SBI adventure site while attempting to gain knowledge on the whole internet marketing thing. I lost my job the beginning of Jan.'09, and have been kicking around different ideas of what I would like to do with my life as opposed to just "getting another conventional job" that may again lead only to the head of the Unemployment line! :(
I read through all of the case studies... they were all wonderful and inspiring, however I believe what made yours different was your transparent (in a totally GOOD way) personality. You pulled me right in with your sensitive/vulnerable "realness"... your charm, wit and easy goingness that made me want to be your life long friend! Your passion for your family as well as pursuits in life are truly admirable!!!
I stayed up way past my bedtime tagging along with you on your SBI Adventure in Canada...I had a great time learning and laughing... especially when Kirby performed "Country Roads", as I live in "Almost Heaven" about 15 minutes from the Shenandoah River! :)
The combination of your posted email correspondence, YouTube clips supporting warm, inviting, even engaging text conversation left me encouraged, excited and determined to gleen from your example!
I want to pursue work that works for me...as someone unique and free! Currently finances are beyond tight, but hopefully soon, I will be in a better position to invest in SBI's services.
Until then, I can continue to learn and plan for my success.
"I Just read your amazing story of success and your Canada 2008 adventure. I found it truly inspiring and it moved me to the point of tears. I am presently researching internet marketing with a view to earning extra income and eventually working from home. I have come across so many scams and get rich quick schemes promoting inferior rip-off products, and I was beginning to get disheartened.
"Thanks to your story, I've now actually found a way of making money online without ripping people off or preying on the vulnerable by selling non existent get rich quick schemes and the like."
"I just finished reading your travel story and I felt I had to write to you. I've read all of your stuff including pretty well every page of your website and I can personally tell you "WOW" what a guy!"
"You live your dreams and you do it with a passion that can be felt. Keep on writing this good stuff and keep on creating SBI! Web sites. You have a great influence on people... at the very least you have influenced me greatly."
