Is it possible to know who are the newbies who built a successful site/online business independently by following the SBI instruction and without hiring a pro? Is there a directory of such members so we can be inspired and learn from them?

There are a lot at but I can't tell you which ones as customer info is confidential. I can say however that each of our 10 Day Action Guide Pros did it on their own, so I know it can be done. A 10 Day Action Guide Pro can however cut your learning curve dramatically and guide you through doing it right the first time.

Asit, what you're asking for is a contradiction in terms. No newbie will ever build a successful business, unless he or she lucked into it. It takes time, effort and a lot of learning to build a successful business. So, by definition, there's no way for a newbie to ever have a successful business.

There are a lot of people who did it on their own without hiring outside help, but that's a different request from what you asked about.

Hi Asit -

If you're wondering how many now-successful SBIers were newbies to site building when they started with SBI, I would guess the answer is: most of us.

If you have a look at the About and the SBI Review pages on many SBIers' sites, you'll see their story of how they learned to build their sites "from scratch" with SBI. Very inspiring! :D

Best Regards,

Hi Asit,

If it helps, my chickens site is successful enough to be in SBI's top 500. I knew nothing whatever about websites or building them, nor about running an online business, when I started and I never had outside help. So you can take a look at that - [Domain Private].

But I echo what Help Elf said - it takes time, patience, a lot of work and a real passion for the subject and for developing it as a business. But if you give it that, it can take you far. From knowing nothing I not only have a successful business, I learned enough from the Action Guide and the forums that I'm now actually employed by SiteSell, which to me is amazing! :D

I also echo what Dee said - take a look at some of the SBI! reviews. They're all amazing, and most people were in a similar position when they started.

And finally, I echo what Debs says! Although I've never had any Pros' help before, I've just paid to spend some time with a specialist in one area so that I can improve beyond what I already have. That's the great thing about Pros - they're brilliant no matter what level you're at.

I wish you every success in your SBI! journey.
