Looking For Individuals Interested Other Ways Making Some Additional Money
Hi! Are you interested in making some extra money? If you are like me your answer is probably yes or sure.

I personally can't speak for anyone else but I work everyday, week, month and year to pay the never ending bills (car payments, rent, every day essentials like gas, oil, elec, cable, internet, etc.) and never seem to have any extra money to do something for myself. Living on that bi-weekly paycheck is hard considering my money is always spent before I earn it. Then that cycle starts again wondering how I will get through the next two weeks. Will I have enough money for food or gas for the car. If only I could really get my full gross payment would I maybe be set, but alas there all the deductions that have to come out. Until three weeks ago, my husband was out of work for five months with medical issues. He was able to get a little (and I mean little) amount of money from disability insurance through his work. On top of the little money received it was only a once a month check. More stress on me (the bill payer in the family) trying to make ends meet. Once he was finally able to try and go back to work, he was told that the company (conveniently) eliminated the position he was doing. Great - now he has no job and no disability insur. income coming in. Talk about stress - no wonder why my hair is going gray.

What if I could tell you that there is a way of making money just by doing the thing you already do - paying your bills (elec, gas, cable, internet, home phone, cell phone, etc). Sounds to good to be true right? Well it's not.

My son recently introduced me to a very successful Independent Business Owner who has recently relocated back to the New England area and is trying to expand their business here and share in this opportunity. My son and I have convinced him to give us an hour of his time to come and explain more to us, our friends, family and you if interested, more about his company.

My son is having a gathering tomorrow, Thursday - August 14th at 8:00 PM in So. Hadley and I am having a gathering next Wednesday, August 20th at 6:00 PM in Belchertown. We would love to have you join us. If interested, please contact me via email at lgwozdzik@stuaf.umass.edu or my cell 413-387-7062 so we can put you down on our guest list. There are no obligations - just information. However, the question is "Will you be one of the many that take charge or let opportunity pass you by?" I hope you will come.

Lorie
