Ambit Energy

Hello and Happy Holidays!

As all of you know, the last 18 months have been a healthcare adventure for me and Keith. I think we've done a great job surfing the chaos, but we have been looking for the right vehicle to take us forward into 2010 and beyond with greater financial security. We began researching financial opportunities with our good friend Beth Krueger, looking for those which would allow us to fulfill our personal mission to "do good and do well." We recently found that opportunity through our friend Bill Mclellan who told us about Ambit Energy. A company, which, in the words of its founder, Jere Thompson Jr., has a vision to be the finest and most respected retail energy provider in the United States.

So, Why Ambit Energy?

Like many of you, we have been offered the 'opportunity' to sell friends & family a wide range of costly products over the years. What we like about Ambit Energy, is that it's just offering you the chance to purchase a product you already use at a lower price. Period. If you want to take it further and develop your own micro-business, great, but absolutely not necessary to benefit from the Ambit Energy opportunity of lowered energy rates.

Truly, energy is the perfect product to offer: everyone needs it, everyone understands it, everyone uses it every day, and everyone likes to save money on their monthly bills. Energy demand is growing and states all across the country are just beginning to open their energy markets to competition.

Texas is leading the country as a model for deregulation. It is the 11th largest electricity market in the world. In Texas alone, residential customers spend over $24 billion dollars every year and most of these customers are still paying the highest rate in the market. Ambit Energy provides an opportunity to save money and earn income at the same time.

Unfortunately, we live in Austin and cannot personally benefit from the Ambit rates at this time. However, you can click here to see if your area is part of the program, and then see how much you can save on your own home energy costs. In addition to Texas, Ambit Energy also offers lowered energy rates in New York and Illinois, with an eye to expanding the opportunity nationwide.

So, there's the story. Thanks for taking the time read this post and we hope that you'll check out the Ambit Energy opportunity to see if it works for you, your family and your friends.

Have a great holiday season!
