Thank you for your interest
in my copywriting services ...

     Now maybe you have asked for this information kit out of curiosity. Some
folks do - especially those who never hired a freelance copywriter before.

     But, more likely, you need a good direct response or fundraising
copywriter--someone who combines writing skill and sales ability with industry
know-how and product knowledge.

    Whatever your reason for calling or writing, you want to know more about a
writer before you hire him. If we were sitting face-to-face, chatting in your
office, you'd ask me questions. Let me try to answer a few of those questions
right here.

                       "WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS AS A COPYWRITER?"

    As a freelancer, I've written copy for dozens of for-profit and non-profit
organizations all across the country. This copy has consistently performed
above industry standards and brought in millions of dollars for my clients.

     My writing ability is strengthened with an in-depth knowledge of people
skills and sales skills. I have taught seminars on marketing, fundraising,
sales, management, and the power of understanding personalities in family and
business environments (a real plus to not only getting along with people, but
also in persuading them.)

    As a graduate of several highly specialized courses, I have advanced
training in fundraising, politics, and copywriting.

    Before becoming a freelancer, I founded and operated 3 separate
corporations, which included a professional speakers bureau, custom software and
website development company and telemarketing center. The attached material will
give you the full story.

               "DO YOU HAVE A DIRECT RESPONSE AND COPYWRITING BACKGROUND?"

     I am a graduate of the American Writers and Artist Institute’s direct
response course (AWAI is the industry leader in copywriter’s training).

     I am also a graduate of the GOP’s prestigious and exclusive Campaign
Management College and their Finance School. I have extensive background in
fundraising and copywriting for national and international organizations. As you
know, fundraising and politics is all about direct response.

Most important to you, I’m a direct mail specialist. Writing direct response
and fundraising copy isn’t something I do to pass the time between TV
commercials ... it’s my bread and butter. So I put all my skills, passion,
knack, know-how and experience into every piece of direct response and
fundraising copy I write. And, after writing hundreds of fundraising letters,
articles, brochures, sales letters and websites for people like you, I’ve

                                                                                      Over, please...
                                -Page Two-
learned how to take every day experiences and mold them into compelling copy
that motivates donors, consumers, voters, and fence-sitters into taking action
... like cutting a check.

                     "DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE IN MY FIELD?"

    If you are a non-profit organization or business that reaches out to buyers
and donors through direct response, chances are I already have experience
dealing with your type of cause, product or service -- or something very
similar.

    Take a look at my writing samples enclosed with this letter. Do they seem
"right up your alley"? If not, give me a call, and we can discuss your specific
needs. Either way, I only approach organizations and business that I can feel -
- and write - passionate about. You’ll be getting my very best.

                   "WHAT KINDS OF ASSIGNMENTS DO YOU HANDLE?"

    I cover the full spectrum. About 75 percent of my business is writing
direct response copy such as sales letters, email campaigns, fundraising
letters, etc... The rest involves creating a wide assortment of marketing
communications materials, including ads, feature articles, slide presentations,
telemarketing scripts, press releases, newsletters, speeches, web pages, and
Internet direct mail.

    My specialty is my ability to weave compelling stories into my copy.     This
writing style charges people emotionally and produces excellent results.

    I am able to quickly grasp complex fundraising and marketing problems.
Clients appreciate the fact that I can sit down with executive directors,
marketing managers, sales personnel, printers, techies and development directors
and speak their language.

    What's more, my copy gets results. One letter, written for a large national
organization, was their top performing letter, bringing in a 28% response rate
and boosting their donations by over 225%.

    Another piece of copy, a donor acquisition direct mail/telemarketing
combination campaign I wrote for a pro-family organization brought in over 2,500
new donors and netted them more than $45,000... in less than 30 days.

    I can't predict how many responses my direct response piece will pull for
you. But I can — and do — guarantee your satisfaction with the copy you receive
from me.

                      "DO YOU OFFER CONSULTING SERVICES?"

    In addition to writing copy, I also work with many of my clients as a
consultant, helping them plan marketing and fundraising campaigns that generate
maximum response. They're pleased and happy to get on-target advice that works -
at an affordable fee — and they like the fact that I don't charge a monthly
retainer.

     "YOUR FEE SCHEDULE LISTS A PRICE FOR A 'COPY CRITIQUE.'    WHAT'S THAT?"

     A Copy Critique provides an objective review of a direct response package,
telemarketing script, finance plan, brochure, ad or fundraising package. You can

                                                               Next page, please...
                                -Page Three-
have me critique either an existing piece OR a draft of copy in progress. It's
up to you.

     When you order a Copy Critique, you get a written report of two or more
single-spaced typed pages that analyzes your copy in detail. I tell you what's
good about it and what works ... what doesn't work ... what should be changed
... and how. My critique covers copy, design, strategy, and offer. It also
includes specific directions for revisions and rewriting, although I do not
write or rewrite copy for you under this arrangement.

     A Copy Critique is ideal for clients who want a "second opinion" on a piece
of copy, or who need new ideas to inject life into an existing package that's no
longer working. It also enables you to sample my services at far less cost than
you'd pay to have me write your copy from scratch.

       "SPEAKING OF MONEY. WHAT DOES IT COST TO HIRE YOU FOR A PROJECT?"

     For any copywriting assignment — a direct response package, a sales letter,
an ad, a brochure, a feature article, a Web site — just let me know what you
have in mind and I'll quote you a price. The enclosed "Schedule of Estimated
Fees" gives typical prices for a variety of different projects.

   "WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS...AND WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT YOUR COPY AND COUNSEL?"

     “I have worked with Joshua in some troubling circumstances and have found
him to handle whatever is thrown his way in an extremely professional and timely
manner.” reports Dan Morgan, president of Morgan, Meredith & Associates, “He has
shown himself to be a good leader and works incredibly hard in achieving the
goals and objectives assigned to him.”

     Kim Lehman, director of Iowa Right to Life said: “Like most right to life
groups, the director wears many hats, including fundraiser. That has worked for
a while, but eventually we are faced with finding new donors. This becomes
difficult because more and more time must be dedicated to fundraising and less
time on what we are really about ... saving lives. I highly recommend Joshua for
organizations like mine.”

     A list of clients and a testimonial sheet are enclosed.

                 "HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE YOU TO WRITE MY COPY?"

    Ideally I like to have 2-3 weeks to work on your copy. That gives me the
time to research, polish, edit, and revise until I'm happy with every word.

    However, I realize you can't always wait that long. So if the job is a rush,
just indicate the date by which you must receive the copy on the enclosed order
form. If I take on the job, I guarantee that you will have the copy on your desk
by this deadline date - or sooner. No matter what the deadline, the copy I
submit to you will be right. You can depend on it.

               "WHAT HAPPENS IF WE WANT YOU TO REVISE THE COPY?"

     Just tell me what you want improved and what the changes are, and I'll make
them ... fast. There is NO CHARGE for rewriting. Revisions are included in the
flat fee we've agreed to for the assignment, provided they are assigned within
30 days of your receipt of the copy and are not based on a change in the

                                                               Over, please...
                                -Page Four-
assignment made after copy has been submitted.

    Most clients are pleased and enthusiastic about my copy when they receive
it. But if you are not 100 percent satisfied, I will revise the copy according
to your specific guidelines ... and at my expense.
                           "HOW DO I ORDER FROM YOU?"

    Putting me to work for you is easy. First, just tell me about your client
base and the product, service or cause you are focused on. Send me your
brochure, catalog, product, or any other literature that will give me the
background information I need to write your copy. Use the enclosed order form as
a guideline. But don't worry about organizing anything - I'll do that. If I
have any questions, I'll pick up the phone and ask.

    When you give me the go-ahead, I'll write the assignment for you. You will
receive your copy on or before the deadline date. And remember: it is
guaranteed to please you.

    Dozens of organizations and companies - including the Google, Microsoft,
Verizon, The Hydrocephalus Association, Catholic Near East Welfare Association,
Republican Congressional Committee, United Families International, Twin Creek
Ranches, Upstream Academy, and Boy Scouts of America - have found my copy ideal
for promoting business and increasing their direct response results.

     So... why not try my service for your next direct response letter, feature
article, press release, ad, e-mail, fundraising letter, or brochure? I promise
you'll be delighted with the results.

                           Sincerely,

quickly. I’ve really enjoyed the experience of working with you – especially the high quality of writing. Your experience
and skill is plainly evident. I wonder if you would be willing to provide our staff writers with some written details on how
and why you did what you did with this package. Perhaps you would even be kind enough to join us on a conference call
and give some training? I think it would really help them all out. Very nice work Joshua. I’m really pleased."

       “I have observed first hand, and more closely than most, how he conducts himself with his employees, clients, and

       “I consider Joshua to be an outstanding individual. He is highly motivated, well organized, grounded in his faith,
devoted to his family and committed to his beliefs. Joshua is a relentless salesman.
         Many times in party politics we continue to do things that don’t work year after year. Joshua brings unique real

“He is a tireless and efficient worker, and is of the highest moral character. I have worked with five other finance
directors in political campaigns and Joshua is by far the best I’ve ever seen. I look forward to working with him in the
future.”

       “Like most right to life groups, as the director, I wear many hats, including fundraiser. That worked for a while,
but eventually we were faced with finding new ways to reach our donors. This becomes difficult because more and more
time must be dedicated to fundraising and less time on what we are really about -- saving lives.
       Joshua Boswell is able and willing to expand the methods of how we fundraise. From a pledge program which
provides a more reliable funding source, to our direct mail fundraising, he does an excellent job.”

        “In a work environment – fundraising- that seems to have more than its share of scoundrels, liars, and outright
thieves, Joshua is truly a shining exception. He is scrupulously honest, practices only the highest of business ethics, is of
impeccable moral character, and treats his clients with respect and dignity. Quite simply, his honor and integrity are
beyond reproach.”

                                                                                                   Randl Ockey, Principal

      “Joshua Boswell provides a fresh and creative approach to copywriting. Reading his Hallmark-like copy is an
exhilarating experience, one can't help but say, 'Why didn't I think to write that?!”

                            How I Write
             Joshua T Boswell
                        “The Spellbinder”
From his office in the quaint town of Spanish Fork, UT, Joshua
Boswell has mastered the art of weaving compelling stories
into his copy. Rich with emotion and real life, his stories
move donors and buyers alike to action today and leave lasting
impressions for tomorrow... a tremendous benefit for anyone
looking to create repeat business.

He has made a specialty of direct response, he says, because
it allows him to reach out and effectively assist companies
and organizations in accomplishing their worthy causes. The
results of these direct mail and fundraising efforts are
measurable and have a clear impact.

Here is an insight on how and why he does what he does...

Google is Giving Authors, Poets and Publishers Their Dream:
To Be Found and Read.
By Marie Harris


As a poet and author, I have but one dream: To touch and inspire people through my
writing. It is a passion that fuels my personal efforts and the efforts of virtually all of my
professional colleagues. My books and poems were not created to sit on a shelf,
collecting dust. They were penned to be read, enjoyed, and loved. They were written to
inspire, teach, and delight.

But far too many authors never realize this dream. Too many wonderful works get set
aside in the extremely competitive publishing world and die slow, sad deaths in library
basements or print shop warehouses. I imagine the same could be said for much that is
written for the worlds of technology, medicine and science.

For this reason alone, every publisher, writer, poet and author in the world should be
warmly embracing the current efforts of Google. Their latest project, called Google
Book Search, entails an almost unimaginable undertaking to create electronic copies of
the entire collection of books found in the libraries of Harvard, Stanford, Oxford,
Michigan State University and the New York Public Library. This enormous amount of
data is being organized, indexed and made available to the world through
www.books.google.com and www.google.com.

Searchers can query keywords and instantly find books that contain relevant references to
that keyword. They can see the cover of the book and read a sentence or two. In some
cases where the book is out of print, they can even peruse the entire volume. If they like
what they read they can instantly order the book from one of several online supplies or
get information on the nearest library that has their book of interest.

For years now, online publishers and companies have enjoyed the power of free
marketing and expansive exposure that Google type search engines afford. But as an old
style “print” author, my works have largely gone un-promoted and un-noticed in the
search engine world. The Google Book Search project radically changes the playing field
as it gives print publishers and authors an equal opportunity to harness the Internet in
putting their works into readers and researchers hands.

Unfortunately, because of an apparent lack of understanding, or sadly, greed in some
cases, several publishers are a bit disgruntled about the project. They believe that it is an
infringement on copyrighting laws and have sought a resolution in filing a lawsuit against
Google.

Copyrights are a very serious thing to me as an author. These laws protect my work and
my good name. It is copyrights that allow me to confidently write and trust that I will be
credited for my work and, if it is good enough, financially rewarded. The Google Book
Search project does exactly that. It is true that Google is copying the entire text of each
book, but not in an effort to resell the book for direct financial gain or in an effort to steal
ideas, concepts or revenues.

Indeed the exact opposite is true. Google is making these works freely available in small
snippets – a sentence or two – just enough to “wet the appetite”, as it were. In some
cases, with publisher and author permissions, a page or two might be available to the
searcher. In sales I believe they call that the “puppy dog close”. In either case, the
original work is being closely safeguarded from piracy and illegal reproduction and the
author and publisher is always credited for their work.

With increased exposure and limited content access, combined with effective
presentation and instant purchasing options, Google has handed a free cornucopia of
opportunity to authors and publishers. The end result could be a significant boost in
authors being read and in readers being inspired, entertained, enlightened and educated.

For most of the authors and publishers that I have spoken with, it is a dream come true.
Verizon Cable/Video IP Service Testimonial – Mayor 1
November 18, 2005
Word Count: 907

There are two major advantages to creating regulations that would allow for a single,
statewide cable franchise approval process: Competition and Increased revenues for cities
like mine.

First, let me address competition. It is a matter of history that markets that are allowed to
operate under little or no competition, eventually see a deterioration in the quality of goods
and services available with a simultaneous increase in the prices consumers are required to
pay to receive the lower quality items.

As you know, this basic fact of market dynamics is exactly why anti-trust laws exist. Yet this
summary almost perfectly encapsulates the current cable market in New Jersey. For more
than 22 years viewers have been severely restricted in their cable options. In fact, only within
the past few years has satellite programs made any headway in providing a second choice.
Even, then progress has been slow. Currently satellite services only command 12% to 15%
of the New Jersey video market. This is substantially below the national average of 21%.
Clearly, competition is not thriving in the cable industry here in New Jersey.

This lack of competition represents a significant disservice to our residents. I recognize that
this is a fairly bold statement. However, I do not make this statement without a substantial
amount of backing.

As Mayor of the city of XXXX I represent over XXXX residents. Being close to the people,
my office serves as a first reception point for complaints. Many of these complaints that we
deal with are directly related to the poor customer service to which cable companies are
subjecting residents. Unfortunately, when dealing with these complaints, the current
monopolistic environment that exists has tied our hands. We cannot tell them to switch
providers and poor customer service is not yet a finable offense in my city. But it is
frustrating and unquestionably our residents deserve better.

As frustrating as poor service quality and lackluster customer skills can be, they are hardly
considered painful when compared to the second blow that monopolies deliver to
consumers: High prices.

For years now, cable companies, void of competition, have enjoyed the luxury of being able
to essentially charge what they want for their services. During the past five years alone, to
cost of cable services has risen by more than 38%. This is totally contrary to the typical
price cycle that is seen in the technology world, which runs something like this: New
technologies are introduced at rather high prices. Initially, few purchasers embrace the new
gadget or service because it is cost prohibitive. However as time goes on, competition and
slow sales force the providers to find less expensive, higher quality ways to distribute or
manufacture their products or services. Consequently, prices follow a steady downward
trend as quality increases.




NJ Cable Testimony – Mayor 1                Page 1                            Updated 1/31/06
Perhaps no better example of this process exists in the country today than the cell phone
industry. 15 years ago most cell phones were also commonly referred to “brick phones”
because of their size and weight. Minutes were extremely expensive, voice quality and
reception were scratchy at best and coverage areas were limited to significant metropolis
areas. Consequently market penetration was under 10% and struggling. Today the
difference is beyond radically different: Coast to coast coverage, crystal clear voice quality,
and a price point that continues to see a consistent decline.

Unfortunately, cable companies have done little to advance their technologies and as
indicated before, their prices continue to escalate.

Some have unnecessarily speculated on what the effects of competition would be to the
cable industry. Fortunately, we have need look no further than Keller, TX to answer these
speculations. Not long ago, Keller, TX simplifies their franchise process and flung open
their doors to cable competitors. The Verizon FIOS service entered the arena providing
exceptional quality of service and the latest technologies at a price comfortably lower than
you would pay for standard cable service. The impact was almost instantaneous. In order to
avoid losing large portions of their customer base, cable companies began reducing their
prices and customer representative performance took a dramatic turn for the better.

Now, let me turn your attention to the next major benefit of creating a streamlined
franchising process for competitive companies hoping to enter the cable market in New
Jersey: Increased revenues.

The current proposal to allow more competition to enter the cable arena stipulates an
increase in franchise fees. More competitors paying a higher fee will have a direct impact on
cities like mine. One extremely positive impact is that city revenues will be increase without
increase citizens’ tax burdens. This new revenue stream can be used to boost police forces,
pave new roads, repair old roads, help with school funding needs and countless other
benefits to residents. They are funds that are desperately needed and funds that we simply
do not have today.

In conclusion, let me make it clear that I am strongly in favor of opening the environment
for companies like Verizon to provide increased competition as they bring the latest video
technologies into New Jersey. If companies are forced to follow the current process of
introducing new cable-TV services they are likely never to attempt to enter the market. The
process, which can take more than 18 months per city consumers unimaginable amounts of
resources for companies and diverts a tremendous number of valuable city resources away to
complete, is simply too costly and too time consuming. Reforms are urgently needed.

Thank you.

Microsoft: Massachusetts OpenDocument Proposal Opposition Letter 1
Tuesday, January 31, 2006
Word Count:

The Honorable Mitt Romney
Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
State House
Boston, MA 02133

September 19, 2005

Dear Governor Romney,

        As you know, Secretary Eric Kriss and CIO Peter Quinn are proposing a
technology move that would establish OpenDocument as the standard and required
document format for all Commonwealth agencies. The premise of this move is very
commendable as it seeks to create long-term solutions to the challenges of archiving,
storing and retrieving data and documents in a format that is open and interoperable.

       The XML technology that OpenDocument utilizes has been touted as the basic
reason for this move and as the fundamental engine for providing ongoing data and
technology solutions. Again, a concept that is to be applauded and encouraged from my
perspective.

        However, before your Administration aggressively moves down the path of
establishing OpenDocument you may very well want to consider that fact that XML
based technologies are already being utilized in the Commonwealth. Additionally, they
are being utilized in a far superior manner than what OpenDocument could deliver.

        XML, in many ways, is like the combustion engine. Clearly a VW Bug (even the
new ones) uses the concepts and technologies of a combustion engine significantly
differently than does a Ferrari. Similarly, XML technologies employed by software
products currently being used by the Commonwealth run faster, smoother, and with
greater stability than products that use the OpenDocument format. They do this because
they have been around longer, have more RD funds invested in them, and are well known
to the Commonwealth’s employees. In contrast, OpenDocument formats are new,
untested and tend to be unstable.

        Best of all, software currently being used already meets open format and
interoperability standards established by the Commonwealth. So, if the solution is
already on hand, the glairing question is: Why go to the time and expense of conversion?
It simply does not make sense. Therefore, I would encourage you to reject the proposal
and focus on making better use of what you already have.

Dear {name},

       As the directors, officers and leadership of the undersigned organizations and
businesses, we represent thousands of constituents and business leaders across the nation.
Collectively we operate in more than 20 countries and territories around the world.

        Recently an international business regulatory trend has immerged that is a cause
of great alarm to us. It appears to have come into vogue for leaders of foreign nations to
aggressively pursue and penalize American corporations based on so called “fair trade”
laws that attempt to protect consumers from monopolistic and illegal practices. It is true
that when used correctly, such laws are necessary and beneficial. However, it would
appear that several foreign countries are utilizing these consumer protection regulations
to realize substantial financial rewards for their governmental treasuries.

        The current plight of Microsoft in South Korea and Europe should simultaneous
raise the red flag of danger and warning to all US companies looking to do international
business, especially organizations that provide innovative solutions to consumers and are
considered to have robust financial resources.

        On December 7, 2005 the South Korean Fair Trade Commission levied Microsoft
with a whole host of demands, fines and penalties, including a $32 million fine and an
order to create and distribute 2 different, South Korea specific, versions of Windows – a
process that would cost Microsoft billions of dollars in development, marketing,
packaging and distribution. Additionally, meeting these requirements would sharply
escalate the production costs of their main product and hamper innovative development
of other all software products. No doubt such costs and limitations would be passed on to
US consumers, who would be forced to shoulder the burden of increased prices and
sluggish production of new products.

        In a brief statement regarding the ruling, Microsoft’s deputy general counsel
commented, “We are disappointed with the Commission’s decision and strongly believe
that their case is without basis in law or in fact.”.
        However irregular and unsubstantiated South Korea’s ruling was, its impact pales
in comparison to antitrust ruling delivered by the European Union this past summer. The
EU’s ruling fined Microsoft $584 million and mandated that a stripped down version of
Windows be made available. Additionally, requirements are being imposed on the
software provider to openly publish essential trade secrets and intellectual property. This
later penalty represents perhaps the most alarming development in international
aggression against US companies. Consider the enormous financial and innovative
repercussions to forcing US companies to expose their intellectual property to
international competitors.

        Additionally, these rulings represent a slap in the face to international treaties and
the traditional deference typically applied to antitrust cases. Utilizing the principle
commonly known as comity, historically ally nations with strong trade agreements have
deferred to the rulings of the home country of the business in question. This timeless
respect has been breached by the EU and South Korea as these exact concerns and
competitive questions surrounding Microsoft’s operations were addressed and settled by
US courts back in 2001. Neither country addressed or made reference to the US
settlements.

        These deliberate actions by foreign governments to prey on the success of US
companies should be of great concern to Congress, the Administration and US business
leaders everywhere. If US companies are successfully targeted and fined in the EU and
South Korea it will send a signal to other nations of the world to follow suit. The reality
of potentially severe fines and mandates to share essential trade secrets and intellectual
property will serve as significant deterrents to international trade, innovation and
development.

        We urge members of Congress to aggressively address these urgent concerns and
to move swiftly to protect US businesses and consumers. Immediate action on the part of
Congress and the Administration could suppress future aggressions and profiteering and
potentially soften the blow of current actions. Failure to do so could have a drastic,
negative impact on the technology industry and the free market.


       Sincerely,


       A whole lot of business leaders.

Tom Reynolds                  J. Dennis Hastert        Tom DeLay
NRCC Chairman                Speaker of the House     Majority Leader


Dear Fellow American,

      “Regardless of everything, it is still easy to cross”

     Sadly, it’s a common statement among Lebanese smugglers
when talking about the Mexico-US border.

     But what are Lebanese smugglers doing in Mexico? (I think
you’ll be surprised)

      And why am I writing to you about them?

     Because they have a story that could radically impact the
safety of our country -- your safety -- your children’s
safety. Especially since it is still being told today...

     In the heart of Tijuana, Mexico sits an abandoned café.
The large sign that still hangs outside the door reads “La
Libanesa.”

     La Libanesa was an upscale café, catering to the upper
class of Tijuana... But the café was a side business.

      The café’s real business was smuggling people.

     As wealthy Mexicans and Americans entered the front door
for a cup of coffee, Lebanese nationals, looking to be
smuggled into the United States, would enter the back door.

     After spending a few days at La Libanesa or a nearby
home, they would be stuffed into the trunk of a car -- or
boxed up with some tourist memorabilia -- or piled in the back
of a moving van –

                and then be driven across the US border.

     The owners of La Libanesa and their accomplices now sit
in a Mexican prison awaiting sentencing . . . but only after
they already smuggled hundreds of Lebanese nationals into
America.

      The problem?
     Many of those they smuggled into the US are members of
 Hezbollah –- a radical terrorist group based in Lebanon that
   espouses and indoctrinates a bitter hatred for Americans.

     Like you, I get a little uncomfortable hearing about
this... especially when I recall that most of the terrorist
hijackers who carried out 9/11 lived right here in America.

     They were established. They were illegal immigrants.

     But shutting down La Libanesa certainly has not stopped
the smuggling... or the thousands that cross our borders every
day ILLEGALLY –- and UNDETECTED!

     Consider these startling and very dangerous facts:

       ∗   In the past 8 months alone more than 70,000 non-
           Mexican illegals have been arrested while attempting
           to cross the Mexican border. They came from
           Lebanon, Pakistan, China, Iran, etc...

       ∗   These 70,000 illegals were given good room and board
           for a few days (at our expense)... and then released
           with instructions to come back in a week or so for a
           deportation hearing...

       ∗   Not surprising, less than 15% of them ever showed up
           for their hearings...

       ∗   So, in just 8 months, we have added over 60,000
           illegal immigrants to our streets...

     Now add to that 60,000 the number of Mexicans we capture
(and usually release)...
     ... and those of all nationalities that we DON’T
capture... and the number of illegals entering this country
every year is well over half a million people.

  I wonder if Bin Laden and his terror networks are aware of
           this gaping hole in our national defense?

     Congress has a solemn duty to stop this national security
crisis...and stop it NOW.

     I want you to know as Chairman of the NRCC, I am working
closely with Dennis Hastert and other leaders of Congress to
plug up this terrifying security hole.

     But to do this most effectively, I need to hear your
answers to the enclosed Emergency Illegal Immigration Survey.
     Your opinion -- your vote -- on the complex issues
surrounding border security and how to handle illegal aliens
is essential to us.

                    But we must act today!

     Every day that we leave our Canadian and Mexican borders
open is another day that over 1,369 illegal aliens... from all
over the world... including Pakistan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia,
and Iran... enter our country.

     We simply cannot assume that they are all coming to
pursue the American Dream of freedom . . .

     . . . but rather we MUST assume that some are coming to
DESTROY us and the freedoms we hold so dear.

     And while terrorism is the primary and most frightening
threat that we face with open borders, it is not the only one.
Additionally, we must face the hard realities of...

     Health Care – Illegal aliens are costing US Citizens
     BILLIONS of dollars each year in medical expenses.

     Education – precious resources are put toward educating
     those who have come in illegally... another multi-BILLION
     dollar tax-payer expense.

     Identification – In most states illegal aliens can easily
     obtain government issued ID’s. These ID’s allow them to
     board planes, access federal buildings, re-cross
     Mexican/Canadian borders and even vote!

     Drug & Human Trafficking – Drugs, assault weapons and
     even bombs, can move freely across these loose borders.

       The solution, of course, is to act immediately.

     And we are. With your survey answers and a kind gift of
$25, $35, $50 or more, the NRCC and GOP Leadership will...
     Fight hard for immediate and long-term border security;
     Distribute millions of “Emergency Illegal Immigration
     Surveys” so we know where Americans stand;
     Research, find, and work toward implementing answers to
     the complex illegal immigration questions of deportation,
     ID’s, health care, and education;
     Support and educate new and existing GOP Congressmen on
     critical immigration issues;
     Help create strong immigration laws that heartily welcome
     those entering legally;
     And so much more...

     I don’t need to tell you that these tasks require time,
money, and a lot of effort.

     That is why in addition to returning your survey, I would
like to encourage you to include your most generous donation
of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even more.

     Your survey answers... and generous contribution... will
send a strong message to members of Congress -– Protect
America NOW!

     So why not take a minute TODAY – while it is handy – and
return the enclosed survey along with a generous gift?

     You will be helping us make historic reforms that will
safeguard America today... and for future generations.

                           Sincerely,

Dear (name),

     I’d like to tell you a story.               It is a story at the very
heart of the Spirit of Christmas.

     A young girl, whom I’ll call Mary, sat alone in her car in
front of a large professional looking building in downtown Des
Moines.

     I say alone, but she was not totally alone. There was a
child with her. To be exact the child was within her.

     The building before her was Planned Parenthood’s abortion
clinic. Mary was trembling and understandably so. A lot of
pressure from her parents and her partner had brought her to this
parking lot. It was not what she wanted. But she was told it
was the only option.

       In her mind she thought of the               joys, the sorrows, the
happiness, the struggles that she had               experienced in her 17
years. They were all things that her                child would never see, or
feel, or hear if she walked into that               building.

     But how could she turn back now? So, with great effort, she
opened the door of the car. With even greater effort she started
walking to the entrance.

     It was there she met the quietly smiling face of a middle-
aged man whom I’ll call Jim. Jim had been standing there in
front of that building for hours. He was there to pray, to
educate, and to encourage a choice for life.

     Softly he approached Mary. He offered to pray with her
before she went in. He told her that she had other choices.
There were other ways.

     She felt the love in his voice and saw the concern in his
eyes. And so she agreed to pray with him. He prayed for her, for
the child she bore, for courage to choose life.

     When they were done, she knew. She felt deep inside, that
she could not, that she must not take the helpless life of her
child.

     Not many days later, Mary found herself once again sitting
alone in a car in front of a professional-looking building in
downtown Des Moines.

              The building was a pregnancy counseling and adoption
         center. No one stood outside of this building to pray with her
         and encourage her. That would be done inside.

              It is a story that I pray can be told over and over again.
         One that could happen on any given day at any given Planned
         Parenthood in Iowa.

              Why?

              Because of our faithful members ...

              They are wonderful people just like you.

              This past year financial gifts from our members have
         allowed us to unify and organize. We have visited with pastors,
         church congregations, and individuals. With our help they have
         organized their voices and their time.

              Today we have people scheduled every month, standing in
         front of abortion clinics statewide, every hour they are open.
         Like Jim, they pray, encourage and educate.

              Who can say how many lives will be saved?               Who can say how
         many futures will be made possible?

              Reflecting on those precious lives makes the Christmas
         season even more special. During this joyful time of year we
         celebrate birth. It is the birthday of the greatest Person that
         has ever lived.

              As we celebrate His birthday, we are, in many ways,
         celebrating the potential greatness in all of us.

              We celebrate the love we feel for each other.

              We celebrate the joys of family and friends.

              We celebrate our hope in the future.

              In our rejoicing, I wish with all my heart that the story I
         told you could be told a thousand times over again.

              Sadly, it is not. Sadly, there are far too many Mary’s
         that find their way into those clinics of death. And afterwards,
         they really do find themselves sitting truly alone.

              They will only choose the good if they know their real
         choices. We cannot teach them without your help.

              This past year has been marked by our constant effort to
         join voices. We have helped pastors, churches, individuals and
         communities become one in a message of life.

              Some of our greatest moments have been in meeting with and
         educating the youth of Iowa. Opinion polls have shown the effect
         of our efforts.

              Today, more than ever, youth are pro-life.

              This rising generation becomes a strong force for good.
         Remember, every educated youth represents the potential of
         several babies that will safely be born and live to love life.

              So this year’s victories abound.   But it is not enough.

              During the coming year we will continue our relentless
         efforts to meet with churches, youth groups, expectant mothers,
         community leaders and political leaders.

              These people must know the horrors of abortion. The pain it
         causes to mother and child alike. The years of heartache and
         remorse suffered by the would-be mother. The hollow futures left
         by the victimized dead.

              They must learn of the tens-of-thousands of barren wombs
         and empty arms that long to adopt, but must wait years –
         sometimes endlessly - for a child.

              They must find and know the truth of how sacred and special
         one life can be.

              Those promoting abortion have the power of the media.      We
         must have the power of the people. People like you.

              Yes, during this Christmas Season it is life that we
         celebrate.

              We can, and must, continue to spread the joy of this
         message, but only with your help.

              So as you consider the many gifts that you will give this
         year, will you please give the gift of future? The gift of life?
         A true gift of Christmas?

               Your tax-deductible donation of $25, $40, $50, $100 or
         even more will allow us to continue our efforts.



              Thousands of years ago, Mary safely gave birth to the
         greatest Life that has ever lived. This Christmas, we will
         celebrate His birthday.

              Today, thousands of other “Mary’s” are sitting in parking
         lots deciding if their precious child will ever celebrate a
birthday. With your generous gift and God’s help, we will reach
her in time.

     I wish you a Merry Christmas. And to Mary’s unborn child –

                        Happy Birthday.



     God Bless,



     Kim Lehman
     Director


PS   This Christmas Season we celebrate birth, the birth of the
     greatest Life ever lived. Yet in the coming year more than
     6,000 children could die from abortion. They will never
     see their first birthday – unless we act today! Your tax-
     deductible gift of $20, $40, $50 or even $100 will help us
     reach “Mary” in time. Please become a member of Iowa Right
     to Life today!

Dear {first name},

     At times, each of us stands breathlessly on the threshold
of an unforgettable moment that has the power to radically change
our lives – for better or worse.

     No doubt, such life altering experiences are not news to
you. For myself, well, as President of the Board of Directors, I
hear about them almost daily.

     I’d like to share one such moment with you...

     Angela Batterman lay peacefully in a dimly lit hospital
room on October 12, 2002. The clock on the wall could be faintly
heard ticking away the seconds of the early morning hours.

     But, for Angela, time seemed to stand still as gentle tears
of joy slowly rolled down her cheeks.

     You see, a few hours earlier she had crossed one of those
magical thresholds of life as she brought a fresh, bright, new
child into the world... it was their first baby... a boy they
named Joseph.

                The Painful Terror of the Unknown

     But you and I know both know that life is not all full of
roses and butterflies. And not all life-changing moments bring
tears of joy.

     14 months had passed since that bright October morning.
Angela and her husband Chris sat together once again in a medical
facility.

     One-year old Joseph sat quietly on their lap. Anxiously,
this small family waited for the results of CT scan Joseph had
been given a few days earlier. It was the second scan in the
past 3 months... a “second” opinion if you will.

     With little fanfare the doctor sat down and pronounced a
single word – “Hydrocephalus”.

                                                             Over, please...
Page Two


                There is a terror in that word... the horrible terror of
           the unknown. It is not like hearing words like “cancer”, or
           “down syndrome” or “diabetes” – scary words to be sure, but words
           that are a known danger.

                Think about it - with hydrocephalus, so little is known and
           so few doctors really specialize in treating it.

                Indeed, had Joseph’s first neurosurgeon only known what to
           look for, the past 9 months would have been so much different...

                         A Christmas Eve Never to be Forgotten

                It was Christmas Eve 2002. The sweet spirit of Christmas
           that lingered in Chris and Angela’s home was shattered as tiny 2-
           month old Joseph went into a full seizure. Without delay, he was
           frantically rushed to the hospital.

                Now, you and I know that major seizures don’t typically
           happen in infants. However, after a few hours in the ER and some
           tests, the Batterman family was sent home. “He’ll be just fine.”

                But he was not “just fine”. Choking on the softest solid
           foods was a constant experience – so much so that he lived on
           pureed food until he was 14 months.

                Normal crawling was never experienced. Walking came with
           profound difficulty. And when he did finally get his feet under
           him, he was as wobbly as a drunken sailor, often falling flat on
           his face... his tiny arms never reaching out to stop the fall.

                For Angela and Chris, time stood still once again as they
           sat staring at the doctor that dark day. A million questions
           raced through their mind.

                 But there was little time for answers – Joseph needed
           emergency surgery. Seven days later the first VP shunt was put
           in place. Two more would follow.

                Angela, Chris and Joseph had entered a new world. Where
           could they find answers, help, and a loving hand... a hand that
           understood the pain, the fear and the hopeless feeling that so
           often accompanies hydrocephalus?

                                A “Family” With Focus!

                Eventually, after many tears and sleepless nights, the
           Batterman’s found that loving hand.

                As Angela says, “Through the support we received from the
           Hydrocephalus Association we found security... and hope. They
           are more than an awesome resource, they are an extension of our
           family.”

                Family – perhaps that best describes what we try to provide
           here at the Hydrocephalus Association.
                                                                    Next page, please...

            You see, we have a passion for helping people with
       hydrocephalus and those that lovingly help them – whether it is
       parents, siblings, neighbors, or medical professionals.

            Reaching out to people is what we are all about.     We have
       accomplished so much over the past 22 years!

            In 1983, when the Association was founded, there were very
       few resources for people with hydrocephalus and their families

            But, today, the Association has created a wonderful
       “family” and empowered them with resources and services like...

             ∗   Newsletter: A quarterly newsletter that publishes a wide
                 variety of information ranging from details on the latest
                 research and surgical procedures to support network
                 information.
             ∗   Information Packets and a DVD: Numerous information
                 packets covering every age and stage of Hydrocephalus.
                 We have provided these FREE of cost to tens of thousands
                 of people nationwide.
             ∗   The “LINK” Support Network: An unparalleled group of more
                 than 1,300 “family” members ready to love, support, and
                 educate.
             ∗   One-on-One Strength: Every day our trained specialists
                 are available - FREE of charge - to answer questions,
                 give guidance... or just to listen.
             ∗   Group Events: Our “TEAM” events gather people from
                 Florida to California to support each other and the
                 Association. It’s a powerful way to share warm smiles,
                 build memories, help shoulder each other’s burdens and
                 help the Association.

             These resources have made a big difference in the lives of
       so many people. Perhaps they have made a difference in your
       life?

                          Changing Lives... Bringing Hope

            I know they have for Cindy Hirsch. Her story, like little
       Joseph’s, is full of life-changing, magic moments...

                   “After I was diagnosed at the age of 40,
                   the Hydrocephalus Association allowed me to
                   better understand my condition. Through
                   LINK, I was able to gain friendships with
                   many new people – people that listen and
                   understand when I need to talk about being
                   a wife and a mom with hydrocephalus.”

            So you see, we have come a long way. But clearly, we are
       not there yet. We are determined to continue moving forward.

                                                                      Over, please...

            That inexhaustible determination led us to organize the
       first ever National Institute of Health (NIH) sponsored workshop
       that focused exclusively on hydrocephalus. This historic event,
       held just this past September, brought together an unparalleled
       number of doctors, researchers, patient advocates, government
       directors, and families.

            This and other events have helped us define extremely
       ambitious – but very attainable - goals for the coming months and
       years. Consider a few of them...

               Increase Knowledge – We will actively confront the lack
               of basic knowledge about how hydrocephalus affects the
               brain by actively promoting interdisciplinary research.
               More Funding - We will aggressively petition Congress to
               encourage significant NIH funding of hydrocephalus
               research.
               Improved Programs – We will move forward as never before
               to expand our programs and improve our services.
               Local Groups – We will embark on an initiative to launch
               local support groups and increase TEAM meetings around
               the country.
               The Rising Generation – We will continue to attend to the
               needs of families with children and of older adults with
               NPH. Additionally, we will place a priority emphasis on
               better serving and understanding the first generation of
               youth who were successfully treated for hydrocephalus as
               children.

            Just imagine how many lives will be touched and improved
       when we combine these accomplishments with our current line-up of
       services. It is inspiring!

                   You Hold the Power of Hope in Your Hands

            But I must give you this one word of caution:
                         We simply cannot do it alone.

            However, with your help, we are sure to see these things
       accomplished... and many more!

            Today, more than ever, people like little Joseph and Cindy
       need the Hydrocephalus Association and the resources we offer.
       More than that, each year thousands of infants, children, teens
       and adults are diagnosed with hydrocephalus.

            They and their loved ones are sure to find themselves in a
       world filled with the terror of the unknown. Many will be
       hopeless, alone and scared about what the future may hold.

            Take a look at the reply card and envelope I have enclosed.
       When combined with your most generous gift of $35, $50, $75, $100
       or more, they represent the sweet gifts of comfort and hope!
                                                                Next page, please...

     That’s right. In your hands you hold the opportunity to
truly bless the lives of thousands of people. Only with gifts
like yours will our dreams of service actually become reality.

      So, please give the gift of hope today.

     They Are Standing at the Threshold – Will You Help Them?

     Today, little Joseph is 3 years old. Recently, Angela and
Chris stood on the sidelines at a kickball game. With gentle
tears of joy once more streaming down her face, Angela manned a
digital camera as best she could.

     With the other children, Joseph raced around the field,
strong and steady. He had come a long way since the days of
falling flat on his face.

     But, more than having balance and strength today, the
Batterman’s have hope.

     Right now, today, thousands of individuals stand
breathlessly waiting on one of those special thresholds of life.
Take a minute – while it is still handy – to return a gift of
$35, $50, $75, $100 or more.

     It is a gift that will ensure that peace, joy, and hope
await them on the other side of that threshold.

      Sincerely,



      Russell Fudge
      President of the Board of Director


P.S. I almost forgot to tell you... not only will your financial
     gift bless the lives of people today, it will also have a
     powerful influence on members of Congress as they
     deliberate on whether or not to support hydrocephalus
     research. You see, your donation is a cry of support and a
     demand for better research. So please, return your gift
     today – the impact will be immeasurable!

          Rapid Profit Opportunities
        Show You Exactly How To Do It…
  (And It Only Takes One Hour a Day - Tops!)

Dear Reader,

     Christmas – the “happiest time of the year” – is down
right nasty business if you are strapped for cash. Every
relative, associate and friend expects some kind of gift
out of you, not to mention the stuff you have to get for
your own family.

     You know the feeling... it’s enough to turn you into a
regular Scrooge! Bah humbug, indeed!

     Well here's your chance to have the best Christmas
you’ll have ever have. I mean it. No stress, no worry, no
hassle.

     Just sweet Christmas memories that will last you and
your family a lifetime.

     In the next three minutes I'd like to show you exactly
how you can pick up a nice little bundle of extra cash for
the holidays.

     Look, my mom used to tell me, “It’s not what you get
for Christmas that’s important, its what you give.” Yea,
it sounded nice, until I hit the mall and spent the rest of
the year paying for the warm, fuzzy feeling I got from
giving to everyone.

     Face it – the happy moments are well worn off about
mid-July when you are still paying 21% interest for that
$40 tie you bought your boss.

         Now, I am not saying that mom was wrong. No, she was
right.     Giving is the most important thing. And there is


12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 1 of 10
no doubt you get a thrill from seeing faces light up when
you give them killer gifts. I love being someone’s hero
for a day...and there is nothing sweeter than letting
family know you love them with a well-thought of, quality
gift. It just makes you feel good all over.

     Maybe the next best feeling in the world is shopping
without being short on cash. Can you imagine! There are
people out there that can walk into almost any store this
time of year, pick out what they want and slap down the
cash for it. Man! Would that feel good or what?

     That is what you could feel like this Christmas. I
wonder how much cash you would need to enjoy that kind of
shopping experience? Would an extra $1,000 do it for you?
How about $2,500? Maybe $3,500 puts you closer to having a
stress-free holiday? Or are you a big spender and need
more like $7,000 to get the job done?

     Whatever it is, you have the chance at having it in
your hands before December 24th... and yes I am talking
about this year. Right now.

     In fact, if you follow the advice in this letter, by
this time next month you could be well on your way to the
holiday experience of your dreams.

      Here's what I'm talking about…

 This Christmas We’ll Give You Our Very Best
     I know you don’t have a lot of time right now. And
probably not much extra cash sitting around either, for
that matter. There’s no shame in that. It's where
everyone is at during this time of year.

     So a couple weeks ago, a few of us were sitting around
after lunch, talking about this annoying problem that
almost everyone has this time of year. That's when we came
up with an insane idea…

     What if we pulled together the best-of-the-best of our
rapid profit generating opportunities to give our readers
an early Christmas gift?   Not something like a cheap watch
from Wal-Mart – but a serious gift that they would never
forget.

        We even gave it a name... The Twelve Days of Christmas
Cash.

     No turtledoves or swans-a-swimming... just nice, warm,
merry-making cash. Doesn’t that sound nice!

      I’m talking about a single package that delivers to
you a dozen of the most powerful and lucrative systems we
have every offered! Remember, lots of people have set
themselves up financially for life by using just one of
these incredible programs. We are going to give you 12 of
them!

        Now, listen to this very carefully…

          How Much Extra Cash Could You This
                      Christmas?
     Every day, for 12 days, you will have a new business
opportunity laid out before you. And I am not talking
about those kind of “teaser” packages packed with half-
explanations and cheesy come-alongs. That stuff will drive
you crazy and cost you a lot of money. Plus its flat out
dishonest – a scam really.

     No, what I am talking about here is the full-meal
deal. From A to Z every detail you will need to put 12
cash-making machines together. Every single one of these
programs will give you money right now, well in time for
any holiday shopping you want to get done. That’s why we
call them “rapid”... they produce cash right away.

     Which, of course, is the whole point. You need extra
cash for Christmas right? Well, it won’t do you any good to
get and extra $5,000 in February! (Ok, maybe that would be
nice too, but it wouldn’t do you any good for this
Christmas.)

     There are a few more things you need to know before I
give you the nitty-gritty details to this amazing 12 Days
of Christmas program. It’s a checklist of things you won’t
need to get started...

    You won’t need a wheelbarrow full of investment
     cash... in fact in most cases less than $150 will get
     the job done!



12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 3 of 10
    You won’t need a warehouse (or even a small closet)
     full of products that you have to sell... at ETR we
     hate selling and inventory is for the birds!

    You won’t need to harass your friends, neighbors or
     total strangers to “get in on the ground floor” with
     you in some crazy MLM.

    You won’t need to quit your day job to risk everything
     for a couple extra thousand dollars. Like I said, an
     hour or so a day should get you there.

    You won’t need the latest and greatest computer
     connected to fattest broadband service available.
     (You’ll be amazed to read that one of the programs is
     so simple that you can launch it from outdated
     computer at the local library!)

    You won’t need a Masters in business or genius level
     IQ! (One opportunity you will get is from a gal named
     Vicky Smith. Really nice person, but she is the
     proverbial blond to a tee... and she is extremely
     wealthy from a “mistake” she made on the Internet...)

    And best of all... You won’t need to cough up a ton of
     money to buy the program. After all this is our
     Christmas gift to you!

   What you will need is a bit of fire in the belly and a
genuine desire to leave the stressful, cash-strapped type
shopping to someone else this year.

   If you don’t have that, then I can promise you the 12
“gifts” we are giving you with this program will be
worthless and you might as well stop reading this letter
right now... you got other things to worry about with your
time.

   But, I am guessing you are up for the challenge. Plus,
when you read the guarantee we are attaching to the 12 Days
of Christmas Cash, you’ll see that you have nothing to
lose. That’s right – we have made this opportunity totally
and completely risk free for you. We just figured you
didn’t need the stress of one more thing to worry about
before Christmas.

   But I’m getting way ahead of myself….

                   12 Days of Personal Coaching
                          By the Experts

   Let me tell you about a few of the programs – or “gifts”
as we like to call them – that you will get with your 12
Days of Christmas Cash package.

   Better yet, let me introduce you to a couple of the
experts you’ll be learning from...

   Paul Lawrence is one of the first guys you will hear
from. Not too many years go Paul was dating a gal named
Blanco from Peru. She did not speak a lick of English and
was struggling find a job where she could make minimum
wage. But all that was about to change.

   You see, for years Paul had been developing what he
called “microbusinesses” – full blown business ideas that
you could get up and running for less than $100. He
decided to personally coach Blanco on setting one up for
herself. The results were absolutely amazing! It wasn’t
long before she was making well over $40 an hour by simply
managing a few employees.

   Blanco was not the only one Paul helped. Mike Yale was
another student of Paul’s The Quick and Easy Microbusiness
System. I can’t tell you whole story here (Paul can get
into it with you later...) but you should know that in
Mike’s first month he pulled in $15,000! How would that
impact your Christmas this year?

   Here’s another man you’ll get to meet during the 12 Days
of Christmas Cash: Yanik Silver

   Yanik is a master at marketing online – no matter what
product you are trying to sell.

   How good is he? In just 2 weeks he put together a
project that brought in $9,842! Another gal he helped
named Carol Tuttle was able to go from $1,200 a month in
online sales to more than $40,000 a month. And that is
just a tiny peak at the successes Yanik has helped create.
The next one could be you... and before Christams!



12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 5 of 10
   I’ll tell you about one more before we move one: James
Sheridan. Now you may not believe this – and that O.K.
because James loves a good skeptic – but he developed an
idea that brought in a stunning $187,296 in 24hours. How
is that possible? I’ll let James cover that story, but the
fact is the man understands quick cash! Even if you just
did 10% of that, I can bet you’d be one happy holiday
shopper!

   Ok, enough of that! I mean I could spend all day telling
you about the amazing success stories our 12 Days of
Christmas Cash presenters have helped created. You’ll hear
all about it during the 12 days. For now, here are a few
details on the program-

   You Can Join a Group of Elite “No Worry”
  Holiday Shoppers - Cash Won’t Be a Problem
   The “gifts” will be wrapped in either an email that
outlines that day’s special cash cow or a teleconference
where you can speak live with one of our money-making
experts.

   The conference calls will be especially powerful... Think
about it, these guys usually charge hundreds (or even
thousands) of dollars an hour to get on the phone and
reveal their financial secrets to clients. You’ll be
getting their time for an obscenely low cost that is not
even a fraction of what they typically charge. (I told you
this 12 Days of Christmas Cash idea was insane!)

   The “12 Days” will begin on December 5th. Once the
program has begun, there is no getting in half way through
– even if there were a few more slots open. And yes, the
number of “Christmas Cash” packages we are offering is
limited. For one thing, several of the conference calls
with include exclusive Q&A sessions that will only be
effective if a select number of participants are involved.

   For another thing, we are offering a number of special
bonuses for those who take advantage of this program (I’ll
detail those for you in a minute...).   To be fair to our
presenters and participants, we’ll be shutting the doors
once the limited slots are filled up.

   Let me explain what I mean…



12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 6 of 10
      You May Never See This Lineup of Rapid
            Profit Superstars Again...
   Registration is going to be first-come, first-serve. So,
if you are going to “think about it” for a while, fine, but
keep in mind, a deal like this is sure to fill up fast. I
guess you should also know that it is not likely that we
will have this kind of laps in our reasoning again anytime
soon!

   Now, Consider this incredible line up of opportunities...

       Dec 5th: James Sheridan Instant Internet teleconf
        call
       Dec 6th: Paul Lawrence Microbiz teleconf call
       Dec 7th: Paul's Holiday biz-opp special report
       Dec 8th: Special report (Mike Litman ?)
       Dec 9th: Mark Smalley son's new biz-opp teleconf
        call
       Dec 10th: James Sheridan Golden Backdoor teleconf
        call
       Dec 11th: Special report (Brian Tracy ?)
       Dec 12th: Mark Smalley PCD teleconf call
       Dec 13th: Special report (Matt Furey ?)

       Dec 16th: Rich Schefren Clickbank and review site
        opp
       Dec 17th: Special report

     You see now what I mean by the best-of-the-best
opportunities, don’t you! Every one of these guys has
helped make people like you and I very rich! The programs
they produce are just incredible!

      What’s all this worth to you?

              The Value of Our Christmas
          Gift To You is Almost Immeasurable
     If you went out and bought these programs individually
you would be spending literally thousands and thousands of
dollars. Frankly, some of these presenters are so exclusive


12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 7 of 10
and so busy you likely couldn’t ever sit down with them and
pick their brains for business ideas – no matter how much
you were willing to pay.

     Luckily, at ETR we have been working with most of them
for years now. I guess, you could say that we called on a
couple of favors so they would be willing to be a part of
this Christmas Cash program... or maybe they just got bit
by the same crazy Christmas bug that we did!

     Whatever the reason, you are the one that will rake
enough cash to make this Christmas your best one ever...
but only if decide to be a part of the exclusive group of
individuals that will join us for those 12 magical days.

      I promised you that this unheard of offer would not
bleed you dry of any Christmas funds you may have stashed
away.

      I’ll bet you are wondering about that promise now.


           There’s an Open Secret Here That
                Could Change Your Life!
     I mean, if you know anything about Brian Tracy, you
know he is not cheap. Would it make you really nervous if I
told you that Yanik Silver has an apprentice program that
goes for thousands? Those are just two of our presenters!

     To be honest with you, it would be well worth it if
you spent a couple of thousand or more on the 12 Days of
Christmas Cash. Why? Because the open secret here is that
not only can you take these 12 ideas and easily generate
over $4,000 of EXTRA cash in the next few weeks before
Christmas, but you could use them to totally change your
financial future forever!

      Make no mistake about it! Sure, we are talking about
putting a bit of extra dough in your pocket for the
holidays. But, if it works in December, don’t you think it
would work in January, or February, or the rest of the year
for that matter? Sure it would! In fact, every one of
these ideas has been proven time and time again to do just
that.




12 Days of Christmas Cash Promo   Page 8 of 10
     And just imagine we are giving you 12 of them – a
dozen of our best, fastest and most rewarding programs –
all wrapped up in one incredible 12 day feast!

     The best part of getting so many programs is that you
can choose the one you like the most. Don’t feel
comfortable with Microbusiness models? No problem! Focus
on the Internet opportunities. Not a techie kind of guy?
Ok. Fine. Develop one of the hassle-free broker businesses.
You get the idea – just pick one and watch the money roll
in!

                     The $77 Christmas Gift
     Nervous yet about the price? Well, you don’t need to
be because you are not going to pay anywhere near a couple
of thousand for this golden opportunity.

     For the next 2 weeks (or until the slots fill up) we
will be offering the 12 Days of Christmas Cash for a small
$77 registration fee.

     Rub your eyes and read that number again (I know I am
because I can’t hardly believe I am saying it!).

     That’s right. For just $77 you can have access to all
12 opportunities... opportunities that can give you
thousands of dollars in extra Christmas cash this year and
potentially change your financial life forever.

     Now, if that was not generous (or insane) enough we
are going to throw in a couple of real gifts for you –
bonuses that will definitely make your Christmas “merry and
bright”.

            Bonus #1 – something really nice that Patrick is
             going to tell me about later
            Bonus #2 – another one of those great gift ideas
             from Patrick
            Bonus #3 – this one is Will’s idea. It’s a dandy

      These bonuses alone are worth $XXX!

     Best of all I want to give you the gift of peace-of-
mind. Here is our unconditional, rock-solid guarantee that
we are wrapping the 12 Days of Christmas Cash in...

your money back! Furthermore, if you are not completely
satisfied with each and every of the 12 programs, we will
refund you every penny of your registration money – no
questions asked.

     Now how could an offer get fairer than that? You have
nothing – absolutely nothing – to lose from becoming one of

Dear Fellow Married Man (Happily or otherwise),

     About a year ago I was reading in Forbes magazine and came
across a full-page ad. At first the ad amused me. Then it had
me concerned.

     After a while it scared me right down to my boots. Haunted
me really.

     The ad showed a rear facing shot of a top-of-the-line
Porsche Carrera GT. The photo of this $440,000 sports car
covered virtually the entire page. The caption below the car
simply said, “Judy Hill – Attorney at Law” and gave her contact
information ... somewhere in New Jersey.

     To be honest with you, at first I was puzzled. I was
having a hard time making the connection between this incredible
driving machine and an attorney in New Jersey.

     Maybe I was too caught up in admiring the sleek lines and
imagining that I was sitting in the driver’s seat, feeling the
raw power of accelerating from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds (you can get
the Porsche GT2 for half the price but it will only do that 0-60
run in 4.0 seconds).

     That is when I noticed the license plate.    It simply
read...



                                                         Over, please...
Page 2



          “Was His”

          Ouch.

          Now I understood. Ms. Hill was a divorce attorney and from
     the looks of it, a good one.

          The more I thought about that clever ad the more I disliked
     this Judy Hill. Hey, let’s face it, with national divorce rates
     at over 50%, the odds are that you, or I, or both of us could one
     day get a call from Hill’s office.

          I’m just as tough as the next guy, but the thought of that
     call makes me cringe. It just sounds downright ugly. You know
     what I am talking about, don’t you.

                    The Solution was just 30 minutes away

           I’m pretty sure both of us have seen a nasty divorce or two
     in our day. You think that is why those people got married? Just
     to endure the emotional, financial and physical stress of being
     put through the grinder in some attorney’s office like old Ms.
     Hill?

          Not me.     Too expensive. Too painful. Too much.

          The thought of a LONG, HAPPY marriage was, and, is much,
     much more appealing for me. I never talked with anyone who has
     been inside the divorce grinder that felt different. If you have
     been there, I am sure you can relate.

          But I have a secret for you. It is a simple secret that
     will keep the flame burning, mend any broken fences and make sure
     that old picket fence stays shiny and white. And as the old
     saying goes, “When momma is happy, everyone is happy.”

          I found the secret on a quiet drive through the rich
     farmland and rugged mountains outside of town.

                        An Envelope Containing Happiness

          It all started one day after I had finished working on a
     huge project for one of my clients. As a “thank you” my client
     gave me an envelope.

          Inside this plain looking envelope I found a gift
     certificate to the Yacht Basin Restaurant for $100 and this note
     attached to it--




                                                           Next page please...
Page 3



                   “A couple of years ago my wife and I discovered a
                   quiet restaurant just outside of town. I take her
                   there almost once a week now. Life is good...
                   better than ever really. This should get you
                   started. Thanks for your work on the project –
                   Buzz”
              Something about the way he wrote that note caught my
         attention. I guess “Was His” was still rolling around in my
         head. At any rate, the next Friday night I found myself driving
         down a quiet country road toward the lake.

              It was a quiet road but the company was even more quiet.
         You know that uneasy, uncomfortable feeling? Yep, that was it.
         My wife was, well, a bit skeptical. I can’t imagine why, it had
         only been 10 years since we went on a date together.

              But all that was about to change.

                      Unexpected Surprises... And Some Magic

               The first ice-breaker on our date came when we pulled up to
         the Yacht Basin Restaurant. Sitting on top of a good-sized hill
         that gently slopes down to the edge of a pristine, crystal clear
         mountain lake, this secluded restaurant commanded a breath taking
         view.

              Snow capped mountains …
              Rich, untouched forestlands …
              And a sky so big and blue you couldn’t help but begin to
              relax and daydream when you looked at it.

              Sitting in the parking lot, my wife took a deep breath and
         reached over and took my hand. Now we were getting somewhere!

              Walking into the Yacht Basin we were taken aback again.
         While the outside of the building had been nothing to speak of,
         the inside whispered two words to you …

              Peace and romance.

              Obviously the decoration theme was nautical. All the
         mystery, excitement and romance of the sea had somehow been
         captured inside that comfortable dining hall.

              Every table was set for two, the lights were low with
         bright candles burning... not those cheap plastic oil-filled wick
         things... real candles.



                                                                       Over, please...
Page 4



              Classical music played softly, almost inaudibly, in the
         background.

              The entire west wall of the restaurant was glass, giving
         every table “the best seat in the house” to soak in that
         incredible view.

              My wife put her arm around me as we were escorted to our
         table. Now we were really getting somewhere.

              I know what you are saying after my flowery description of
         this place: “This guy is going to spend his $100 gift certificate
         on the first night.” My thoughts exactly as we sat down.

              Wasn’t I surprised.

              When the waitress came with our menus, I told her I had
         this gift certificate. She asked to see it. When I gave it to
         her she opened it and read Buzz’s name on it.

              Instead of pushing a drink on us or some greasy appetizer,
         she looked up and started talking to me about Buzz! “How is he
         doing?”, “How is Jane?” (That is Buzz’s oldest daughter), etc…
         She knew the whole family like they had been friends for years!

              Now   I have to tell you. I like personal service. Kind of
         gives me   a kick when people remember my name. But my wife LOVES
         personal   service. And more than that, we are both obsessively
         proud of   our kids.

              I could see the spark of excitement and enjoyment dancing
         in my wife’s eyes. This was getting better by the second.

              By now we were both feeling so relaxed and enjoying each
         other’s company so much that I could have cared less if the meal
         cost me twice the amount on that gift certificate. There was a
         magic here that had re-sparked the electricity we had when first
         dating.

              Shoot, I would have paid 4 times my gift certificate for
         that feeling.

              So I didn’t even look at the prices when we both ordered.
         I got the Seafood Baked Medley (I love seafood, but never get it
         because my wife hates it) and my wife got the Hickory Center Cut
         Sirloin.

              I won’t bore you with the details of the rest of the meal,
         except to tell you that my wife has a bit of a flare for fine
         foods. It was the best steak she has ever eaten. My seafood
         dish was no less spectacular.


                                                               Next page, please...

          When the waitress brought us the check she found that my
     wife had moved her chair around the table next to mine. With my
     arm around her and her head resting comfortably on my shoulder we
     sat gazing out across the lake as the last rays of daylight
     burned softly on the water.

          I picked up the check ... only $34.95! ... already paid out
     of the gift certificate and cash for change … not another gift
     certificate. Two chocolate mint truffles accompanied the check.
     My wife got both of them (I hate chocolate – I know – crazy).

          We left the Yacht Basin Restaurant that night arm in arm.
     As I opened the door to the car, my wife drew me in for a long
     passionate kiss.

          Then she said, “Let’s hurry home. We have a date to
     finish.”

             Now I understood the note my client had written to me.

             “Life is good… better than ever really”, is what he had
     said.

                       Experience the Magic For Yourself

          Almost a year later, and over 30 dates with my wife at the
     magical Yacht Basin Restaurant, I really understand.

          I know what you are thinking, “It can’t really be all
     that.” Yeah, I was skeptical at first too. But believe me, I
     haven’t even scratched the surface of how good it is.

          So don’t take my word for it.     Experience the magic
     yourself.

          Grab your calendar. Find next Friday or Saturday. Write
     down “Date Night – Yacht Basin Restaurant”. Oh, and be sure to
     tell your wife! (I know communication is not a strong male
     characteristic… but stretch yourself just this once.)

          Inside this letter you will find a special certificate to
     make the date night just that much more valuable. It is a “Honey
     Pass”.

             What is a “Honey Pass”?

          It means your wife eats FREE. Anything on the menu...
     including her drink... including her appetizer. Free.




                                                           Over, please...

              But set that date today. You’ll notice that your “Honey
         Pass” expires in 14 days. Missing this opportunity would be a
         big mistake... huge.

              I promise you it will be a magical night of relaxation and
         romance like you have not had in years. The lasting effects on
         your marriage and your relationship will be just as impacting.

                 How sure am I?   90 days sure.

              If you come to the Yacht Basin Restaurant and it is not
         everything (and more) that I have boasted it to be, give them a
         call within 90 days, tell them how much you spent on that first
         date night and they will give you a complete refund... plus $20
         for your gas and travel troubles.

              Have you ever heard of restaurant offering anything like
         this? Neither have I. But then again I have never had something
         so positively impact my marriage as our weekly date night to the
         Yacht Basin Restaurant.

                 Set the date today.

                 Oh, by-the-way, I recently ordered new plates for our two
         cars.

                            “Tgthr Frvr” and “Tgthr Frvr2”.


                 We’ll see you there Friday night.


                           Life is good,



                           Stan Jones
                           Restaurant and Food Services Consultant

         PS      It think it is only fair to tell you that my client is
                 Darden Restaurants ... you know owner of Olive Garden, Red
                 Lobster, Smokey Bones, and Bahama Breeze. But, ssshh, that
                 little tidbit doesn’t really need to get out, does it?

         PPS     I almost forgot to mention a little known secret. Yacht
                 Basin Restaurant owns a beautiful old 110-foot sailing
                 yacht that they moor at the docks just below the
                 restaurant. Every Friday, late afternoon, they set sail
                 around the lake with a few lucky couples. The voyage is
                 about an hour... and it’s free. Show up around 4:30pm and
                 there is a good chance you’ll be on your way...
