    A very practical guide... Well Done!

    Dear Jillian, I am thoroughly enjoying "Your Internet Cash Machine". I haven't finished it yet, but wanted to thank you for creating such a great resource that's easy to read (and listen to)!!! I must admit that because "money" isn't my primary motivator. I was somewhat dubious about the book because of its title. Advice to your readers... never judge a book by its cover or by a few detractors. Success will not "jump out of the book" and into people's lives without deliberate action! I'm glad that I gave your book a chance! I will build a more successful business faster because I did. I view your book as a practical guide for launching and growing an existing business - by using what is already available online, affordable and oftentimes, free. Your book shows what options and tools exist, where to find them. and how to use them to achieve very specific, well thought out goals. For that, I am eternally grateful. It was as if you knew what we needed to do, and took the time to research, document and prepare lessons and list examples that could help our business thrive - even during challenging economic times. I believe that your common sense approach to internet-based business planning, marketing and sales success can help any business do more, better, faster for less. I look forward to putting your concepts into action and making a big splash soon. Because of your book, I know how to plan, do and achieve our important sales and marketing goals for a fraction of the cost that we originally planned. That was another great and welcomed surprise! Thank you for sharing your knowledge so willingly, freely and completely. The world is a better place because of people like you. With gratitude, Will Price Entrepreneur

    A reviewer

    I recently read this book and thought it had a lot of great ideas. Mind you I am new to internet marketing and just learning but I found it very inspirational and thought provoking. Some of the ideas presented were definitely things I would consider using on my website and others were not. Definitely worth reading for a newby.
