If you have a passion that you’d like to share, look into it and begin the journey! A journey begins with a single step. You don’t have to put 30 hours a week into a website. You need to put in the time YOU decide.Cheryl Hatch


Welcome to A Christmas Carol – Sitesell-style! Each day we’re going to re-introduce one of our successful SBIers and their amazing stories. Like the Ghost of Christmas Past, we’ll revisit these tales of old and see what lessons we can glean.

For this eighth day of Christmas, we’re visiting with Cheryl Hatch, of, who started her early childhood development journey in the mid-1990’s. She was working full-time and taking classes evenings and weekends to get her degree.

She worked hard to get her education, and then worked even harder to put that education to use helping preschool children. She created reams of materials for her classes – week-long themes, activities and more – all while becoming all-too-familiar with the budgetary struggles of teachers.

By 2010, Cheryl started organizing all of her material and was stunned at how much had actually accumulated over the years. She had always wanted to create booklets to help other preschool teachers – had even gone so far as to create outlines – but life always got in the way.

More importantly, knowing as she did how little money teachers had to invest in materials, Cheryl didn’t know how she might go about giving booklets away to preschool teachers and still make a business out of it.

Fortunately, Cheryl’s oldest daughter jumped in at that point and suggested that Cheryl build a website, and then monetize it. She’d never even considered building a website, and had no idea what that might entail.

After extensive research, she found SBI! and knew that she had what she needed, as her two requirements were met:

  1. Excellent Guidance & Support – SBI! provides tutorials in the form of the “10 Day Action Guide” to follow, as well as Forums to ask questions of other solopreneurs.
  2. Affordable – SBI! normally costs just $299 a year, and is on sale now for just $199 the first year, including domain name registration and hosting.

Cheryl Hatch found a way to share her incredible preschool resources with other teachers, and has turned it into a successful online business thanks to SBI!, and you can too!

As we’re whisked away by the Ghost of Christmas Past, back to present-day, overlooking the streets crowded with busy people hustling through the Christmas Season, we’re reminded of how important things like Family really are.

Just like Ebenezer Scrooge, even we sometimes need to be confronted by such stories in order to truly recognize what’s important to us, and what we need to do to change.

Do not let another Christmas pass by while your dreams of owning a business fester in your belly like a bit of undigested cheese. Throw open the curtains and renew your lease on life! It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, now is the time to get started. With SiteSell’s Holiday Special in full swing, there’s never been a better time.

P.S. When the clock strikes noon on the 29th of December, this sale, too, will be a Ghost of Christmas Past, so don’t wait too long. Your new business awaits.
