News & Updates switched to https

Feb 21, 2017 is now configured to automatically use SSL for all pages on the site, so you should see every page here using https in your browser. This means that all communication to and from the site is encrypted, including the contact form.

In the past I only used SSL for order forms, but the trend these days is to push more websites into using SSL exclusively, and Google has been squawking about that especially.

My webhost SiteGround made it very easy to switch the entire site to SSL by adding this functionality to their custom caching plugin, so it only took a minute to configure it.

Caffeine-Free Year

Jan 13, 2017

One of my goals for 2017 is to go caffeine-free for the entire year. This includes having no coffee, espresso, tea (black, green, white), caffeinated soda, chocolate, cocoa, cacao, etc. Herbal tea that’s naturally caffeine-free is okay though.

I feel this is something I just don’t need in my life this year. My mind feels sharper, calmer, and more focused without it. 🙂

Save 33% on SBI Through January 6th

Jan 4, 2017

If you’re interested in building your own passive income streams (also called evergreen income), a good service to help you achieve that goal is Site Build-It (SBI). They’re currently running a 33% off special from now through January 6th at 12 noon Eastern time.

If you want to learn more about SBI and why I recommend them, see my SBI review.

Are people actually succeeding with this service? Yup. Here are some SBI case studies, showing how people have used it successfully in different niches. And here are tons of examples of successful SBI sites that you can visit for yourself if you want to see what people are creating with it.

Many readers use SBI to get started earning passive income, especially if they need help with the mindset of believing it’s possible. Then they often go off and explore other ways of generating passive income too. SBI has a money-back guarantee, so it’s easy to try it and see if it’s a good match for you.

The matrix noticed what you did, it was awesome, and we all appreciate it tremendously!

Congrats… and please keep it up!
