Written by Noelani Rodriguez

Continued from page 1

Julie and I now meet in cafes, or at one of our homes so that we don't have to do our work alone. We share that we don't have to work at all, but work when we want to. Our websites and campaigns do most ofrepparttar work for us.

I have found joy with my friend Julie Fast. We celebrated my birthday onrepparttar 108363 Oregon Coast--my cake had a big "E" on it. We've recently started talking about e-books onrepparttar 108364 radio, teaching classes about e-books, and we even wrote a 100 page e-book together called “Make A Living Selling E-Books”.

Well I thought I would share our little story with others. Our lifestyle is too good to keep all to ourselves.

Noelani Rodriguez is a Radcliffe grad, a former E-Commerce Consultant that now likes to help people to e-market their products online. She especially loves e-books. Her joint site with Julie Fast is - feel free to write if you love e-books, at: amazons [at]
