my Mother's Personal story on Apple Cider Vinegar
My name is Lila, and I am a 54 year old NJ native, was currently residing in PA and now SC.
About 20 yrs. ago my own family’s trials and tribulations with health problems inspired me to explore alternative medicine.
My father began having health problems. I believe this all stem from his weight; the food he was eating, and the prescription drugs. I was only 25 yrs. old and designed a program for my Dad and regiment of healthier foods.
Unfortunately, he continued with the high dose of medications, high sugar and fat laden food. He was addicted to the taste and probably to the medications.
As the old saying, “you can lead the horse to water, but you can’t make him drink it”, this is so true. You can talk, preach and sometimes beg individuals to change their lifestyles and habits but with no results. Unfortunately, and extremely sad to say this is what happened to my father. The reason I have dedicated this website to my DAD. Love you Dad!
NOW, my passion was to help others to live long and healthy lives, and not to rely on processed, refined and chemically induced foods that large companies’ produce.
I wanted my husband, children, sisters, and my Mom all to have a long happy, healthy life.
What is living if your health is failing?
Having children, vacation, homes and money, does not mean anything if you can’t be healthy enough to enjoy them.
Did you know 50% of American people go to see their doctors at least once a month for some ailments? This time can be better utilized with your family.
I became very serious in organic healthy living, and told many people about it. They rely on me for information, suggestions and advice. This is what inspired me to build this website.
Why did I decide to build a website about organic?
Let me explain the two-fold reasons why I decided to build a web site about organic living.
First, I love healthy living and I wanted to design an organic web site so that I couldshare my knowledge to everyone. I wanted to education everyone to live a healthy and wonderful life without disease and poor health.
Secondly, and just as important, the company I had worked for 24 years decided to "save some money" and laid me off, as a way of down-sizing.
I was floored!
I had given them my best and many years of my life and they act as it was no significant deal to them.
Well, it was and still a big deal to me. I went back to school and obtain my BA/BS Marketing and Management Information System (MIS) degree. But with the economy the way it is, it is not easy to find a 9-5 job.
So, I decided it was time to take things into my own hands. I felt that I could no longer trust any sort of outside source to keep me going. I had to do myself. I had to become my own boss.
So, with the passion of living healthy and my degree in MIS I thought I would look into a business on the NET.
The question was: where do you start?
After sorting through all the typical Get Rich Quick Scheme (Garbage) on the Internet (as you may know, there is a ton of it out there!), I came across a powerful web host called
“Site Build It”.
After doing some pretty extensive research on it to see if I were actually looking at the "real deal," I took a chance and signed up. And I am so glad I did!!
Reading the story of a girl named Lisa was a large part in why I jumped on board the train of "Site Build It".
I found exactly what I was looking for....!
I also receive many emails asking me more questions about this website and about SBI.
Obviously, there is a lot of curiosity about the system.
How much time do you spend working on your site?
Here is my story. I started May of 2006; I was extremely excited to start.
I couldn’t wait to start the tutorial, at this time I had already known what I was planning to write about – my passion for healthy and organic living...
I took my time, because I knew if I learn slowly and absorb everything it would pay off ten-folds.
I was about 2 months into my site, when tragedy struck my family. My mother was in a serious car accident and we did not expect her to survive and then 6 months later her only living sister (my Aunt) suddenly died. I was devastated and overwhelmed. Needless to say, I had to put my website on hold.
However, I still had the desire to get my business off the ground especially now because of the free time I needed to manage my family affairs.
With a regular job this would not be possible it would be so difficult to stop and leave to support my family. Consequently, my desire to have my own business was not only surprising but extraordinary, because I always thought I could never make money without a big corporation.
Boy was I wrong!! I started again about 9 months later with the help of Site Build it! and been doing it ever since. I work on my website any time I have free time or about 2-3 hrs. a day.
Is it terribly hard to do?
That is probably the most common question. The answer is yes and no. It depends how you define hard.
SBI was created with beginners in mind; for people that have never built a web site in their life and don't know any HTML code (some people don’t even have heard of HTML). Although it accommodates the beginners, I found it to be applicable to anyone of any experience level.
It certainly isn't a matter of pressing a few buttons and the money starts rolling in. It takes time, hard work and commitment to build a successful website. Do not underestimate the amount of time, the amount of hard work, and the amount of commitment involved!
But that's all it takes.
It does not take exceptional writing skills, it does not take technical knowledge, it does not require that you know anything about computers or websites. Nothing.
You will initially have to learn a lot, but that's the fun of it, and you know you are doing this for you and NOT your boss.
You will be guided through the whole process. Anybody with a brain who's willing to learn and work can do this, no matter what their background.
You can do it.
Bottom line: it is fun, easy and when I began to see people coming to my Organic website, interested in what I knew and had to say, I was positively thrilled! Then the money started showing up....thrilled was an understatement! ;)
The most crucial point to take away here is that my income is steadily growing, day after day, whether I work on the websites or not.
It grows faster when I do a lot of work, but it still grows while I go away on long holidays. I earn money while I travel, I earn money while I'm spending time with my family, I earn money while I sleep. It's pretty hard to beat.
What's also hard to beat is the feeling that you own your life and your time. There is no way I could ever go back to working for others in a permanent job.
A recent Harris study showed that 72% of households are searching to start a home business.
You need no programming skills or web design knowledge, no business and no product to sell. Just bring your brain and motivation.
SBI has all the tools you need, and they take you by the hand and teach you step by step how to use everything.
They help you find the perfect topic for your site, to build it, to get traffic to it, and then they even teach you how to make money with it, no matter what it is about!

Think of things you have done in the past, that you loved and never really got a chance do to it anymore because something came up or other things seems more important. I have always had a dream of life extension and what makes people sick.
I have read many well-known, respected authors. Linus Pauling, who died at age 93 and was known as the world’s greatest scientists and humanitarians and a much respected and beloved defender of civil liberties and health issues. His brilliant bestseller describing his approach to optimum health and disease prevention and treatment,
"How to Live Longer And Feel Better" is worth reading. Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, I can’t say enough about these two. Their book, "Life Extension" was one of the first books on health I read, very scientific and not for the layman, but I read it. I knew if I understood his book and read through almost 850 pages I knew I had the passion for healthy living. Dr. Andrew Weil, best-selling author and world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine. I recommend his book, "The Natural Mind";: A new way of looking at drugs and the higher consciousness"The Natural Mind: An Investigation of Drugs and the Higher Consciousness""Spontaneous Healing : How to Discover and Embrace Your Body's Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself"
I am constantly reading current news, articles, magazines and books on better living. The subjects range from what is in your food to what is in your environment. I share all my knowledge and facts to my family, friends and acquaintances.
Now, I want you to know too. My website, Live-the-Organic-Life.com will include various categories on organic living: food, skin products, children and baby care, environment and alternative medicine, Q&A forum, free advice, free ebooks, and you will have the opportunities to email me with any questions.
