Dear Valued Subscriber:
You know, people often stop me on the street and say, "Chris, you're a successful Internet Business Executive -- is there anything you can share with our young people that would speed them on their way toward Cyber-Success?"
This really got me to doing some deep thinking, I can tell you. The result is this subscription-only series of newsletters from Entropy Gradient Reversals, a terrific company that really cares about people like you and me!
Actually, the fact that you have decided to sign up for this series already says a lot about you. For one thing, it tells me you have one of the primary ingredients of a successful business person: knowing a good deal when you see one! It also tells me you are highly discriminating in your choice of personal associations online.
For these reasons I feel entirely confident in making the following guarantee. If the advice in this first issue alone doesn't increase your personal net worth by at least 30% over the coming quarter, you are entitled to a complete refund. That's right: if you're not absolutely convinced this program is working for you, you'll get every penny back. No questions asked.
Remember, making a killing on the Internet doesn't have to be hard. To paraphrase P.T. Barnum, there's a new Yahoo being born every minute on the World Wide Web. You just have to believe in yourself and have a lot of pride in a darn good product.
Here's wishing you the very best in the merchandising ventures I know you're all excited about getting underway. God bless you and this great country of ours. And don't forget to keep those cards and letters coming!
