Crisis Proof Your Income With an Online Business


Crisis-Proof Your Income With an Online Business

Crisis proof your income with an online business and never have to worry again about unexpected events in the future.

In 2008, as the economy collapsed, millions of people turned to the internet, looking for ways to replace lost income. At the time, many of these folks didn’t know that those searches would turn out to be highly significant, or that they’d lead to crisis proofing their income for the future.

In 2008, I was working from home doing mechanical engineering design (with my brother) and then the recession began. Work dried up. What to do? I tried selling stuff on Amazon à la “FBA” (Fulfillment By Amazon) but the only ones being fulfilled were Amazon themselves.

After much research. I became the proud parent of a brand new bouncing baby website I’d decided to call Easy Food Dehydrating.  And the rest, as they say, is history!Susan Gast,

Once again, and practically overnight, our world has abruptly and dramatically changed. Everything is impacted by the global health crisis — family life, work, businesses, school, socializing, sports, entertainment, shopping and travel.

How can we help? 

By helping you put a Plan B into motion to protect your income-earning ability for the future.

Start an Online Business That Enables You to Work From Home Not Only in Times of Crisis

Work at HomeIt’s natural to be worried. We’re in a situation unlike anything we’ve ever experienced in our lifetime. But don’t feel you have to simply wait it out — there are opportunities.

Everyday people just like you can and do live life on their terms.


By building their own online business.

So… what exactly does that mean?

An online business is a website or blog that enables you to make money in various ways. 

We use the term “business” because it reinforces a more serious mindset. You aren’t just “blogging” or “putting up a website.” You’re building an actual business.

Will you earn income over night? No. But — if you start today — you will create a solid foundation to either supplement or replace your full-time income in the future, while working from home.
