Comment : how I kept moving even with a broken leg!
Posted by Justin on Sun 6:03pm 11 July 2010
I feel your pain! I broke my left leg three months ago fighting with mother nature and surfing in big waves! Several lessons learnt! I had a spiral fracture of my tibia and fibula and I have been walking on it crutch-less for about 3 weeks now. I think it is more musculature pain now, and as I can manage a few km and then it flares up and the limp comes back. Slowly but surely it is getting better!
Whilst bed bound I discovered something that really helped me keep my life moving, even though I couldn’t physically move for a few months! Quite by chance I received a very cool greeting card through the post by someone I had met a few days before my accident. Straight away I was blown away by the fact that not only had this person sent me a greeting card to say that ‘it was nice to meet me’, but the card also had a printed photo of them in it! On a closer inspection I noticed that although the card appeared to be in their handwriting and had their signature at the bottom of the message it had in fact been printed! It looked extremely professional but yet extremely personal.
Anyway I called up this guy and said ‘how did you do it?’ I want to be able to send card like this, and he asked me if I was near my computer. I said yes, that was about the only thing I had been near for the past week! What he showed me blew my mind.
He showed me an online system when you can chose a greeting card, from your computer, or create one with your own photos, write your message (in your handwriting), click the send button, and then the head company prints the card, puts it in an envelope, put a stamp on it and post it for you! That’s right! You can send heartfelt messages from your laptop, that look as if you took the time to go to a greeting card store, handwrite them, and then que up in the post office! All for under a $1, and in less than 2 minutes from your computer!! Very very cool! Especially when you are as immobile as I was!
Something else very cool about this is you also the option to make money out of it. If you know anyone else who sends cards or gifts you can earn commission on all the cards and all the gifts everyone you know sends! I now earn more part-time than I used to full-time, and a percentage of that is residual income (income that comes in no matter whether I work a few hours at it or not).
Guys you have to check this out, you will have so much fun using it, it is a system that makes you a better person, you spread heartfelt messages all across the world, it helps you build relationships with people even though you never have to leave your house, and you can still earn money even though you are ‘not able to work’.
If you want to know more please visit my site... www.sendoutcards.com/tiger In fact if you click the ‘contact’ button at the top of the page I will personally call you, show you how to use this incredible system, and let you send a few cards for free, on me.
This has massively improved my life, and I know that it will massively improve your life too if you invest a bit of time to look at it.
Hope to speak to you soon,
