Yet there are many purposes or motivations for having a home business.

We recommend you investigate why we started, if you have any inkling of working from home at all. Many people recently have begun to consider that. Are you one?

Our Mission, Vision & Core Values

Our goal for this website if to give visitors helpful details related to lakes in the Southwestern United States. Plus from the nature of lakes, we touch on the rivers, streams, wetlands etc. that relates to area lakes.

We believe people who are tourists, who like to travel to the Southwestern states, who like touring the area, will like the information we provide. And find it helpful.

We also cover natural information about lakes, how they're formed, the types of lakes there are, etc. Plus related subjects such as water conservation and the ecological challenges that lakes face. 

In doing all of the above, we have specific experiences in life that you may have already read about on our About Us main page. Additionally our work experience and college degrees have given us tools that help with building and maintaining this website.

Plus to add to the value our company offers, we publish a Newsletter. We issue it once a month: To The Lakeside. It's a fun, short, read - with tidbits related to lakes & unique info & history.

About Our Gig Economy Home Business

We use the best website business builder (in our opinion!) there is. Called Solo-Build-It! (Solo Build It - SBI). Because it has absolutely everything you need to make a fabulous website while at the same time creating your own money-making gig. Your home business!

We've used other website builders before - you've heard of them I'm sure. They're low-cost, some even free.

But none give you what SBI does. None take you through online business success steps like SBI does. And nobody else gives you such top value that SBI does. Nobody can compare!

If you're considering a side gig, or thinking of working from home, you really should investigate SBI. If you create a website for a business, you want to ensure people will visit it. No use opening your business website, if no-one goes there to see what you've created!

See our story to understand fully why We Recommend Solo Build It - how we came to choose it for our business website, and why we feel so strongly about it & love it so much!

Why not check it out? You've got nothing to lose - but so much to gain!
