10 Sales by Noon but So Sick

Last Update: February 13, 2020

Good news and bad news today.

First the Good News.

I had 10 sales on Amazon by noon today! Wow! That must be a new record for me. They were all through my second site. I think my post on clinically proven supplements for corona viruses is doing really well. It is not #1 on Google anymore but it is doing very well on Bing and Yahoo and people are still finding it on Google as well.

We Must Be Careful Not To Mislead People!

I see a website for a supplement called Coronavita when I search for my post. I looked at the site and it is 1 page. There is no About information. No background. No information about anything other than 1 paragraph about this one supplement. There is no information about the ingredients in the supplement! Nothing about how those ingredients work against a coronavirus. No references to clinical studies like I have. No disclaimer that the site owner is not a doctor etc. This stuff could be totally useless and just taking people's money!

I was careful to state right up front that I am not a doctor and that no-one knows for sure what will work against this new strain of coronavirus. I explain that there are supplements that have been tested in trials to kill or greatly weaken other corona viruses like SARS and other dangerous viruses like avian influenza as well as drug resistant bacteria like MRSA. The way these supplements work is broad based so they work against hundreds of different viruses and bacteria whereas vaccines only work against one or two strains. They are likely to have some effect on the new 2019 Novel coronavirus even though there are no tests yet. I spent days putting together academic references to real studies testing each of these supplements and adding active links to each one so people can go straight to the source. No one needs to take my word at all.

I would never slap up a website and claim to have a treatment for something new that had never been tested however!! I bet that site will not be up for long.

In any case, my site is doing well! People bought a bunch of immunity boosting supplements some of which I have not reviewed.

Most of the traffic is organic traffic as well.

Now the Bad News with a golden lining

I am sick. I have bronchitis. I stayed home from work today and feel miserable. I was shocked to see I had 10 sales when I checked Amazon! What a sick day bonus!

This is why we build up our sites, so someday we won't need a job and can work from anywhere.

Onward and Upward,

Jessica

Well done Jessica, that's great news, it's so encouraging to see others building their online business. I'm sorry you do not feel 100%, hopefully, you will be back to normal very soon. It's a great feeling to make 10 sales, especially when you aren't feeling 100%, a great bonus!

Wishing you even more success.

Hello Jessica,

I'm very sorry to hear about your mother, life can be tough at times, it so important that we make the most of every moment and appreciate the simple things in life. I do hope that you are feeling better and that your mother gets the treatment that she requires, promptly.

Wishing you a very good day.

Thank you Roy. She is coming back here on Monday and I will be going with her to doctor's appointments. I am slowly getting better I think but still have a bad cough.

A pleasure Jessica. It's good that you can look after your mother and give her the support she needs. I hope your cough goes quickly and get back to some sort of normality.

My wife has been in hospital for the past eight days, unexpectedly, she is waiting for a lung operation. Once she has the operation it should cure the problem. It is just a reminder to cherish every moment together, the mundane doesn't seem mundane any more!

Hoping that you have good news in the coming weeks.

Hello Jessica,

My apologies for the late reply, I've been running around for the past three weeks! The good news is my wife should be coming home today and on the mend in a very positive way.

I do hope the sales are still coming in.

Have a great weekend.

So sorry you are feeling ill, Jessica, my friend.
What a great sick bonus to get all those sales in.
May the good fortune continue and also that you get better very soon.
It is good that you are so thorough with your research and not misleading people. We all need to boost our immune system
and with the good work you are doing encouraging people to take care of themselves you can rest easy.
All the best,
Jill

Thank you Jill. I have been really down the last few days. I found out my Mom has lymphoma. It is very scary. I am still dealing with the trauma of losing my Dad to leukemia 5 years ago. Mom is very young and healthy though so I am trying to stay optimistic. It is just so hard though to be plunged into this again.

My husband and I have been super sick. Just starting to get better now I think.

Yes. She was scheduled to fly to California today for her nephew's wedding. She just had the CT scan on the way to the airport and told me when she got to Seattle.

We only found out there was anything wrong a few days ago but I was hoping for something better than this.

I am so sick I didn't see her today. She is the healthiest person I know for her age. She is young (only 23 years older than me) and has been healthier than me for as long as I can remember. She is very optimistic (or putting on a great show of strength for my benefit) and if anyone can beat it I know she can. She waited a day to tell me they found a tumor on her spine since she didn't want to add to my stress. I have been surrounded by death and illness lately and have my own health problems. I have been struggling ever since we lost my Dad to leukemia 5 years ago.

How is your health now?

I am following a natural regimen and it seems to be keeping things at bay for the moment. I have good days and bad, and lots of pain pills at the ready hehe...

I have had two surgeries to now, removing some of the worst areas, and the rest seem to be reacting well to the changes I have made in my diet and the supplements...

This is just a thing, and will not stop me until it does (if it ever does). I have decided to address it this way and keep on trucking in all other areas of my life...

Pretty sure your Mom is the same. We can take steps to slow it down or minimize it and enjoy each day with a little more clarity than we may otherwise.

To obsess does not help and may even make it worse, I think, and I would rather spend my time doing other things, positive things. I bet your Mom is the same...

Nonetheless, I am sure that she will want to talk about it once in a while, and just being there to listen will help her lots. Life is not easy, no matter if Alaska or Dubai it seems! Hang in there too!

Thanks Dave. I knew you would understand. I went to naturopathic doctors at a clinic here years ago. knew the clinic was founded by a naturopathic oncologist from Cancer Treatment Centers of America. I made an appointment with them for Mom already. I always regretted that I didn't get Dad in there. He had many other health problems however and had had leukemia for 37 years. He got it three years before I was born and it went into remission for many years. Mom is happy to go.

I am glad you are managing!

Wow, this is amazing, I like your last sentence very much, we build our websites that one day we will not need "a job per se but we will be able to work from anywhere in the world." I believe if I do the work, stay positive, my persistence will win one day. Thank you for sharing!

I can only imagine more sales moving forward...
