@Dr AmyPraying and crossing my fingers for this product. It sounds amazing. Shark Tank DOES get the name and product out there and has changed the lives of many entrepreneurs. I see you did get a grant from Chase Mission so Shark Tank DID have some good side effects. Keep working. There are millions of people pulling for this product...YES, MILLIONS. Once the word is out the demand will follow.

@LindaStewartRiley I think it's pretty easy to make an adult version of something besides a bee. I hate needles, even if it's just allergy shots once a day. I'm wondering if the daily prick for blood tests (I'm diabetic type 2) would be easier too. SO many uses....

Sorry you didn't get to partner with Barbara. She seems like an awesome woman and businesswoman who really has a laser-eye for what will work or not work. She has my utmost admiration. I have to wonder how much of the trash talking is the show, or who these people really are. All of us have some A**hole in us....but in the end, SO GLAD it worked out for you. I write for several health magazines and would love to review the product. I've contacted your folks via the email provided on Twitter, so hoping it works out. Thanks for what looks like an AWESOME product!

My dad was this kind of douchebag. I grew up seriously depressed and believing I was an idiot until I got tested and found I have a 140 IQ. It doesn't do me much good when my self-esteem is 0. I look back at my father and see his father treated him the same or worse. He didn't know any better. He didn't know how to parent. He NEEDED someone to step in, step up and set him straight and love him before he could love others. Your letter is right on, but please write another. Think and talk about how we crush bad fathers who are merely those grown children of abuse. I dare say this small broken boy will grow up and treat HIS kids just like this because he won't know any differently either. If a child doesn't have a good father he should have a good father figure. If you see your children's friends having this kind of life make it a point to be a good father to them too. Spend time showing them that all fathers are NOT like theirs. You don't have to tear their father down or be critical. You just have to show, by your love, patience and actions that there ARE other ways to be a father. It might be the very thing that breaks that chain of abuse.

@GrantGriffiths@Joseph Dang Good! Because I'm already promoting you guys! The holidays are approaching and I have two ebooks to give away - one is 101 Gifts for the Homeless, and the other is Copywriting Tips From the Homeless. Both will help raise awareness of the homeless over the holidays and hopefully bring some awareness to the issue so many people and families are going through right now. As soon as I get my Clickbank refund I'll be over here signing up for a 5 site package. http://beckyblanton.com/2011/10/do-not-buy-popup-domination/

@GrantGriffiths@Joseph Dang I'm hoping that you provide better customer service than Popup and have some support. I don't mind paying the subscription if I get VALUE in return, something that Popup does NOT have.

Whatever you do, DON'T bother with Popup Domination. They don't respond to emails, won't return your money EVEN if you request a refund within their 60-day period and the HTML is a nightmare to figure out. Check the forums and message boards. This isn't just MY issue, it's very common and they are doing NOTHING to address it.

Getting PopUp Domination's HTML code to work with MailChimp will have you stuffing bananas into your eyes so you don't have to look at the thing anymore. PopUp is a NIGHTMARE to get working if you are not a coder. There are N O TUTORIALS anywhere on the web that tell you how to make this thing work. Support at Popup is non-existent. No one will help you with this...you're all alone...even in the forums no one can find a solution. You're screwed. You can't even get your money back...because they don't answer their email. DON'T BUY IT!!!
