Many people are not waiting for an economic cure, but are creating jobs for themselves and others. Recently, Kamila McDonald-Alcock, certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist, television reporter/producer and website designer Marc Gayle launched their own entrepreneurship website.

Their website, www.10poundpledge.com, was created from McDonald-Alcock's experiences and the volume of requests from individuals to create a product to help others lose weight and become fit and healthy. It is the ultimate in workout and nutrition guide that helps you to lose 10 pounds in five weeks.

McDonald-Alcock and Gayle said with massive communities online, there are abundant opportunities to identify and meet the needs of a wide and engaged consumer base.

"Beyond the easy buy-in of starting an Internet business, social sharing and networking sites have created an utterly unique database. People are declaring what they want, who they are, what they like, and what their friends like too," they said.

McDonald-Alcock, who once struggled with her own weight and is now committed to motivating and inspiring others, moved from 188 pounds to 128 pounds and, creating a workable framework, she decided to share her success with others. "For any successful result, persons have to ensure consistency and stay motivated. The website allows you to feel this way; it allows you the comfort of being in your living room and allows the user to be interactive," she said.

There are three packages available, including Basic for US$60, Kami Combo for US$80 and Master Class Combo for US$120. According to McDonald-Alcock, persons generally have many excuses for not starting an exercise and health regime, but getting fit and healthy is a lifetime investment. "It feels like a lot of money initially but it is a lifetime investment," she said.

Since the website's launch, results have been positive as persons are making intelligent choices in terms of health and weight management. For more information, visit www.10poundpledge.com.
