Mostly inspiring!  (With more every week!)

  -- latest update...

I just made my 1st sale! 4 Rooms in 3 different houses for one person for $5300. I still can't believe it. Got 50% down. Seemed too easy. Some are rental properties and one is his weekend cabin. Feels like I am dreaming . He hasn't even seen a demo poster. Can you believe that. Just a referral from a friend. Jewel Cousins

I have also done STARSCAPES® for an astronomy professor who was amazed at the accuracy. All the WOWS!!! This is what makes STARSCAPES® such a fun business! Frank Wilson

I made more in two days than I normally do working 3 weeks at the airport. Ron Williams

I just wanted to tell you that today was my first day at talking to someone about STARSCAPES® . After showing the brochure to a motel owner and stating that it would be a wonderful amenity for his motel, I asked for a darkened room so that he could see what it looked like. We walked into the lobby men's room, where I positioned the demo poster/board up above the urinal. He turned off the light, and said, "Wow! When can you start?". I told him $395 each, and he asked what kind of deal for 28 rooms. I said $200 each. He said, "Let's do it!" Guess what else he's said? "I have more motels." THIS IS AWESOME! Patrick Ennis

I love it. I rate it a 10! Last night I had my 9 year old granddaughter with me gazing at the stars on my bedroom ceiling. We were able to talk about God and His Majesty. After I got up, she remained there and when she sat up, she excitedly said to me, Grandpa, when I sat up and was still looking at the stars, I felt like I was sitting in the front row of the IMAX Theatre! What a testimony!  Rudy R. Escobar

Everything is going great and people can't believe me when i tell them it will knock their socks off, and then when I am done they're floored, I can hardly get them to leave their room to finish signing their paper work ........thanx Joe, you're a godsend!!!!!!

Joe, yesterday I made €500, and today €600.  €1100 in two days!  And everyone that sees it is just ecstatic!  Brian Trainor

I placed a small ad in a local paper and am getting about a call a day! Jeff D.

A lady I did some work for is in the process of adopting her second child. A common problem for adopted or foster children is their inability to sleep at night due to their new and strange environment.  As luck would have it, the ceiling I did for her first child worked wonders and completely solved this problem for her!  Needless to say the Director of Child Placement was more than 
enthusiastic to know more about this, and wants to meet me for further discussions. I plan on doing a free ceiling at the center for new adoptive parents to see first hand the amazing relaxing effect!  Keith S.

From all the welcomes I've been getting and encouragement (from the worldwide STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionist Inner Circle Social Group), I think I'm going to make some lifelong friends.  Rose

I booked my 2nd job in as many days... This one was worth $1100 + a lot of friends for the unveiling.  Richard Y.

I prayed for direction from God in aiding my decision last night and when I woke up this morning, Sunday, the door bell rang and there was a US Postal carrier with my STARSCAPES® Intro. Package.  I didn't even think to ask what he was doing delivering on Sunday morning.  The US Postal Service never delivers on Sunday!  Ever!!!   J. Borean, South Carolina

About a week ago I decided to go to my local city hall and speak to the business planner and developer. I explained my business and that I wanted some input on how to market it as well as to do some volunteer work at some local children's hospital rooms or senior centers. The lady was sooooo impressed by the brochures and the concept, and the fact that I was willing to donate my time to the community, that she wisked me upstairs to speak with the mayor.   I was invited to go onto the mayor's local access television program and talk about
STARSCAPES® for a whole segment.  I even got to take calls from local residents!!!  I also booked two jobs with the mayor's office people without even a demo.    My point is this, go to city hall and use your town's resources. Every town has a person in charge of business planning and development, and while they help out  the "big dogs" like Walmart and Sears, they are also there to help out the small businesses as well. Hey, you pay their salary through your taxes so you might as well use their help.    This lady even called all the local school's science depts. and was calling all the hospitals, centers, etc for me.   Eddie Ahearn.

At first i'd like to tell u about the reaction..of my first customers in this bussines..i mean you're were very surprised in a gooood meaning.. :)and they said.."Thank you's superrrrrr!!!!"..  So everything that u said in the mails that i received from you're's really..true..i don't want to irritate you ..don't think that i didn't believed..i did..ofcourse..but dreams..are coming true.. I's giving me al the finnancial indepency..that i dreamed of..and not just this..  So i'd like to thank u cause you're exist!  Carmenita in Hungary

When I first started and read your advertisements about making up to $1500 a day, I thought that while some might make that, most probably don't.  But guess what?  I just had a $2,000 day!  An 83 year old man and his wife... 2 rooms in their house.  He told me, "I've seen everything.  I've been up one side of the street and down the other.  I fought in World War II.  But I've never ever seen anything so incredible"!  Frank Wilson, California

We had 2 wonderful days at a Metaphysical Fair, our first show.  Now, it's in our blood, STARSCAPES® Rocks!!! 
Fred and Becky G. in Ohio

Dear Frank and Toni (STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionists),
I just wanted to thank you both for your professionalism and the outstanding job you did on our ceilings! I have seen many amazing things during my lifetime but this tops it all. I am absolutely astounded that my ceiling looks normal in the light but disappears in the dark to reveal all the stars in the sky above. Thank you again for an amazing job well done! Bill D.

"We get so much enjoyment from the STARSCAPES® ceilings you did for us but our fun doubles when we have company over. Our guests simply cannot believe their eyes when we show them our STARSCAPES® ceiling! Thanks for doing such a good job!" A & V

"My husband and I just used to kiss each other good night and go to sleep. Now when we go to bed, we talk for hours under our very own stars! Thank you for bringing the romance back into our marriage with your STARSCAPES®!" 

"Wow! This is awesome! Absolutely unbelievable! My son is going to love this! Thank you both! - Josh"

I just quit my real estate selling business to do STARSCAPES® full time!  Ron T., California, 41 yrs. old

You know I just started.  Guess what I booked for my first job?  100 rooms in a hotel!  for $500 each!  That's $50,000!.  The hotel has 1400 rooms, and I'm hoping!  The 100 rooms need to be completed in the next 90 days.  This week, I'm painting 6 rooms in a Bed & Breakfast Inn for $1,000 a room!  I just turned 70 years old and I was going to take life easy.  Now, I'm having too much fun!  Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, I'll be doing a STARSCAPES® in a NASA museum also!  Richard C., California, 70

Someone else landed a 400 square foot room at $8 a square foot!  $3,200!  (Se'll have to remind me who it was... in Montana, I think.)  When she told her customer the price, she said "Is that all!"  Again... not bad for a first job!

I just wanted to thank you and STARSCAPES® for the best Fathers Day experience a guy could wish for.  This past week I had my 22 year old son over to paint STARSCAPES®  in his old room at our house.  We had a GREAT time! We were laughing, joking and actually enjoying something in common together.  He is more excited about STARSCAPES® than I've seen him about anything over the last several years.  We had such a good time that we've decided to do some of our jobs together and share the enjoyment of creating  STARSCAPES®.  Again, thank-you!  Sincerely,  Alex P.,  Arizona, 47

What we love about this unique and profitable business is we are in charge of our own destiny.  When our prospective clients first view the demo we have, the are in AWE!  Keep looking up to the Universe, it's our canvas.  At a local Ramada Inn, I painted 5 rooms with a six foot STARSCAPES® Skylite.  Now, he wants me to do another 120! When I gave him the initial demonstration, he said "I have never seen anything so spectacular in my life!"  . Fred and Becky G.  SAI #01653, Ohio, 69

I just landed a job for $3,000!  3 rooms in the house.  Now I really want to get into this full time!  Jean E., Maryland, 35 

I received my kit and after looking at the box for an hour, I decided , what the heck, open it and see if everything Joe said was true.  I did every room in my house, one in my friends, and lastly a big 12' ceiling in my brothers house.  Then I did my first paid ceiling.  I did two skylights for kids rooms. (I charged $49.95 for Skylights).  The kids went crazy!  They loved their ceilings, (so did their parents).  I heard "Wow!  Awesome!  How cool!"  And two big "Thank you's"!  I have another skylight lined up from this job, and a full ceiling too!  This is everything Joe said it was.  It is fun and rewarding!  Darlene S., New York, 56

Well, I've been in the business now for two months and have a motel coming up I'll be doing with 26 rooms.  After that is another one with 27 rooms.  Previous to these, I've done 20 residential rooms and 200 motel rooms. I've been charging between $100 and $200 for each room.   I know I should probably be charging more, but I'm making between $700 and $900 a day.  Each job takes me between 35 and 40 minutes to create.  My 22 year old daughter helps me and she just loves it!   Jerry H., Virginia, 57

Everything you told me is the truth Joe  :o]   This is the No Brainer of them all.  Fred G., Ohio, 69

I was talking to our city's largest home builder and he wants me to put STARSCAPES® in not only his home, but all of his model homes too!  I took a "leap of faith" and signed up for the "home show", and I'm already getting calls from local designers!  
Cathy B., Ontario, 36

Received all STARSCAPES® material as you promised.  I'm AMAZED!  Quite frankly I didn't expect so much material.
Kevin C., Florida, 51

My husband Bernie & I are working STARSCAPES® together, he does the jobs I do the admin. We have only just begun and things are looking good with 3 jobs booked already.  We got a great job to do a Battles in Space theme this weekend.  Bernie made some samples up and stuck them on the walls for the family to see and they were blown away by it, so when we quoted they said "Is that all?  We would have paid twice as much!". So........ They have promised us lots of recommends & the little boy is planning all his friends coming over!  This is proving to be a real fun business.  Caroline D. , England

Life is looking good!!!  Did my bedroom ceiling and I think it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!  Didn't realize what a clever, talented person I am - ha ha.  We have some orders already and I haven't done any marketing yet.  - thank you!
Yvonne B., England

Just a quick Email to let you know that I have completed 10 paid jobs.  Everyone of my customers have been blown away with their STARSCAPES® masterpiece.  I am going to target some motels and B&B's etc. now that I have full confidence in my work.  I will keep you posted with how I get on.   Mark Bettridge, s.a.i.,  England  

Did a bedroom last night, $455, 12x12, my customers love it!!!  I'm getting good at this.  Off to Cambridge on Sunday to complete 10 paintings.  UPDATE:  Next job paid... over $700!  Gui R., England

Dear Joe, I'll be placing my order with you very soon, as I need a little longer to get the funds.  I made a mistake by ordering from (a competitor), and they took my money, and didn't deliver.  Here's the details FYI:  PayPal Case. Reason for Dispute: 
Non-Receipt.  Buyer's Comments (me) to Paypal: "Hi. This is a precautionary dispute! 22 days ago, I purchased from the vendors website their product offered. As of yet, I have not received it. If it turns out this is a dodgy transaction, and I don't receive it by next week, I will have no recourse but to contact various web agencies to express my equal concerns about their validity and sincerity, and notify them of possible fraudulent activity from the seller's website. I'd just like to get the product I ordered. Bill Thornton"   Complaint Status: Case Closed.  Status Details (from Paypal): We have completed our investigation of this case. We attempted to process a refund from the seller's account to your account. Unfortunately, the seller's account does not contain the funds necessary to cover this refund. We were able to recover $0.00 USD. We have taken action against the seller and are working to recover the remainder of your refund. We will contact you when we have more information. No further action is required of you at this time.  B. Thornton

We drove from northern California (832 miles) undecided.  After viewing STARSCAPES®  in person, we were sold.  It is just amazing!  We are very excited to get started, and look forward to doing business with Joe and his staff.  Gene & Pat Miles

STARSCAPES® is fun and profitable - I get a real sense of creative accomplishment with it as well.   Once you've practiced on your own kids rooms, invite friends and neighbors over to view.  Most of my business has come from referrals.  People really do have to see one to get the full impact.   It really blows most people away.  And it is very rewarding to have provided that for them .  Joe provides great marketing resources for new artists.  I made my investment back within about 4 months.   I work it REALLY part time...  and am very glad that I have the ability/skill to make an extra few hundred dollars whenever I need to.  Allison Hays

This is not only super profitable but FUN, FUN, FUN. F. Allen

CONGRATULATIONS to IVAN CORDOVA in Illinois FOR HIS FIRST JOB -- $1200 !!!  NEXT JOB BOOKED BY HIM IS $500 !!! Next two got him $1800!!!  HE'S EXCITED!  Says he's been looking for a home based business for years and that they're all Bull**.  Nice to have you with us!  He faxed over his customer's testimonial... "My wife and I are very pleased with the work.  The price I think was fabulous ($1200), and we can't wait to have guests over, and to refer Mr. Cordova to other prospective clients."  (Remember, it costs less than $5 to create a STARSCAPES®.)

I've done a few STARSCAPES® jobs already but lately have had a profound revelation.  After completing a room for a customer, I simply mentioned to him, "While I'm here, why don't I go ahead and paint your other room for 1/2 price".  He said okay!  That was a $470 job... simply for the asking!  Martin C., Germany

Just got the package today! And thanks for the great message along with my outstanding webpage. We are painting 2 jobs tomorrow. We are on the move!!!  G. Gross, Louisiana


Kathy in Montana sold about 50 jobs at this past weekend's Home Show. She told me that calls are still coming in, and she needs more paint!    

Hmmm... let's guess $397 for a show special x 50 jobs = $19,850.  Now... when she does a room, how many EXTRA ROOMS in the house do you think she can do, while she's still there, at half price?  One extra? Two extra? The bathrooms? Hallways? Stargazing Skylites in the living room or family room?  If she gets them all to have their friends, families and neighbors over for the "unveiling" of their signed and dated STARSCAPES®  MASTERPIECE... and gives them a deal they can't refuse, like, "Tonight I'm going to do something very special for you! You're going to get THE SAME SHOW SPECIAL!"  How many EXTRA JOBS will she get?  How many when she does the same with them?  Remember... if you don't ask... you don't get. So ASK!   (And shake your head up and down, in "yes" fashion, while you're waiting for their answer. It's really, really hard for someone to say "no" when you're doing that!) --old salesmen's trick.  

She had a drawing for a free skylight and had over 800 entries (sales leads).   (I'll tell you HOW to turn them into happy customers in the next GALACTIFIER NEWSLETTER.)    Your StarBuddy, Joe Petrashek, s.a.i.   Starscapes International

I just wanted to say that your product is truly amazing! My father,David Jipson of Standish, Maine, was an electrician by trade and ordered the kit back in 1995 and showed me a "demonstration" on a part of my bedroom ceiling. I could'nt believe my eyes! The ceiling disappeared and there they were. Actual STARS in my room! It was exactly the release I needed from the tension of losing my mother to a terminal illness 6 months prior. Sadly my father passed away shortly after and I was left by myself. For many nights the only comfort I got was to lie in bed, in that room and gaze at the stars with the memory of my father and I creating them on my ceiling. I was never able to venture out with it like he wanted to do as I could never find the kit my father had originally ordered. It's something that I wish to this day I had ,(the original container) just to carry that part of my dad's happiness with me when I would create for others. I would like to someday order for my own when I can afford to, but unfortunately now can't be that time. I just now remembered the name of your company out of a dead sleep and had to see if I could find you on the internet. I just wanted to thank you Mr. Petrashek, and your company for giving me such a great memory night after night. Sincerely, Dan J.,  Maine

I have only done two practice ceilings so far and have learned by a few mistakes. My master bedroom will be next and I am very confident it will be really good.  I have orders for nine ceilings so far without even trying.  I am going to give myself another week of practice before getting out there and pulling in the greenbacks.  Calum M., Scotland

Hi,Joe! Many, many thanks!! I really appreciate your quick reply.  Top customer service! It was great speaking with you yesterday, the maestro!  Your words of support really are doing me good and in the future wants to make it a success.  I am working very hard at it right now.  And even if it don't work ( financially) I have got now skills and artistic talents which I am proud of.  All thanks to you.
Once more thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I will be ordering new business cards very soon but my mobile ( cell ) phone number will change in 1 week so will order when I have got the new number.  I am wishing you and your family, Joe, and all the fantastic staff at Starscapes International a wonderful Christmas!  Speak to you soon. Very kind regards,  Gui R., England

Thank you for coming up with STARSCAPES®, and thank you for all the help and support that you and STARSCAPES INTERNATIONAL provide. You and STARSCAPES® are truly a blessing, and I am having a great time with it too!

I have had the demo posters for 2 weeks (they are awesome) and have about 10 ceilings to do (co-workers & family). I ordered the full program after hours on Friday, Sept. 26 on-line. I will be interested to see how fast it gets here (Alberta, Canada). I know that it will not be received until Mon. morning at head office. I am anxious to start spreading the stars.  Tracy in Alberta.

I'm as mesmerized by the STARSCAPES® you painted as the children are.  This is one home improvement that will never go out of style and will never need to be redone.  I think it will also be one of their fondest childhood memories after they are grown and gone.  I thank you for doing such a great job.  Christi B., M.D., F.A.C.S. , Arizona

I ordered the STARSCAPES® package and receIved e-mail from the STARSCAPES® staff that it was shipped out.  Wow, that is service, thank you STARSCAPES® staff.  Paul in Poland

I just finished my first job and it was an AWESOME feeling to see the excitement on my clients face when she viewed her ceiling.

Hello Everyone,I am glad that most people are doing well with this
business,  I know that it has been wonderful for me.  I make money just about every week using Joe's method.  R. Saenz, Texas

(This letter is from our private and busy INNER CIRCLE group for STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionists.) 
Hi all.  Dawn and I bought into this business with our eyes open, we spoke to Joe, practiced, and then began to chase business. I wont lie it is and was hard to convince people to lay out their hard earned dough.  But once seen they are so happy with it. Most of our leads are generated from our first few customers recommending us to their friends and we have done several now, and this week I will be doing a job that will pay me more than I earn in 2 weeks as a qualified chef.   For about 3 hours work.  The point of this post is (though not as inspirational as some I have read) to reinforce that this business works, this is honest work and you can be proud of working it. Just stick to your guns, get out there and make it happen. I see both Dawn and I working this full time by the end of the year.  And as for wanting the convention when the poll opens, my vote will be a resounding yes, not so much for education (which will come from just all of us meeting) but to actually get to meet Joe and all of you in this group.  Shane and Dawn Powell, California

Hi there just to tell you that I am going to paint a sample of 20 11"x13" rooms in a Motel in Tampico, Mexico.  If the client is satisfied (ha ha ha ha) with the
STARSCAPES®, I may paint 80 more rooms in his other hotels and motels. I gave a special discount $180 USD each.  Humberto M., Mexico

I went out to do a job for one of the radio buyers and came home with $460 CASH! I'm selling the $50 Skylite on the air for $9.95 (to get in the door) or they can apply it to a full ceiling for $50 off. This client bought 2 rooms. A full
STARSCAPES® with $50 off for $334 and the second room was 1/2 off of the Backyard version for $135. (When I saw he was paying cash I rounded it down to $460 as a thank you.) I can't tell you how unbelievably great it was to come home after only 4 hours of work with that much money in my pocket!

I've just received the demo kit... WOW... It's simply amazing!!  I'm very excited about his opportunity, and hope to be able to get the deluxe package soon.  Pat P., Sasketchewan

I went to a retirement party this past Saturday. I have three + orders and a gazebo to do.  Mikal H., Florida

I quit my job after five weeks and am doing
STARSCAPES® full time now! Sam S., Texas

I did my first paid job on Tuesday and had a blast. It was a master bedroom that I did a summer sky in. they loooved it.  The guy's grown kids with families of their own saw it and I think they are going to go for it too!  William K., Georgia

I finished my 3th
STARSCAPES® this week, and have made $ 600 for the 2 first rooms, $ 370 for the 3th (today)(collected $ 30 in advance for one more next week)  and I am waiting for sunday to paint the 4th for $ 465.00 USD.  I already collected $ 600+370+30= $ 1000USD plus (with God will) $ 465.00 next sunday.  $ 1,465 Total in one week Not bad at all, right?  keep reaching for the stars.  Humberto, Mexico

Thank you so much for the STARSCAPES® opportunity!  I can finally do something that feels so right! Jean E., Maryland

My son's STARSCAPES® ceiling... 
The job was done and in we all went. 
Mom, Dad & Steven, all in a row on the bed.
Off went the lights, our eyes closed tight,
covered with our hands to keep out the light.
Countdown from 10, hear the music play...
Open your eyes!  Oh! My God!  The words were stuck.
So amazed, we were totally struck!
So awesome, way, way more than we even expected!
Can't wait to have the family room done -- yet this week!
Rose J., Arizona

I thought I'd post a note to let everyone know how things are going so far. I've been "opened for business" for 2 1/2 weeks now and just completed my 12th ceiling today! Everyone just loves their stars! It's funny because I get a job to do a kid's room and after the parents see it they all want me to come back to do their room. The most skeptical are always the men. Before they see it they assume that it's going to be those cartoony plastic glow-in-the-dark stars. Then, after they see it...I get the best reaction from them because they were such doubting Thomases!!!  (Does my heart good :-)
Anyway, I'm so psyched about this business. I love loading the bags in my trunk in the morning to go do another ceiling. This is the happiest I've ever been with a job (although calling it a job hardly seems right since it is so much fun)! I've got two more rooms to do this week and two more jobs lined up for next week and more people written down in my book waiting to be scheduled. It's all good folks! Happy Painting! Julie Burns, STARSCAPES® of Jacksonville, Florida

I just had the money for this a few days ago, but had to pay some bills with it.  I've been showing the poster to some friends and they all said, "I want one!".  I've got 5 jobs booked.  My kids are "dying" for it!  The IT business is really stressful for me with my 3 kids, and I can't wait to get out.  I know STARSCAPES®is the answer for me!  I hope you can give me some more time so that I can still get the bonuses.  Mary Ellen in New Hampshire

I am a new member who just obtained my Deluxe Package. My, how time flies! Unlike some of you, I have not been able to devote as much time as I would like to make this program a success. I have perused EVERY posting on the STARSCAPES®Artist (member's only) board (yes, all 800+ of them), and I have gleaned many tips and suggestions to add to my own business.  I reluctantly have to confess a key point - I ordered the demo kit almost 3 months ago, but I procrastinated in making the poster. Part of me felt this was a "scam" like so many other opportunities you find on the internet. I have always been of the mindset that you reap what you sow, so this program gave me exactly what I needed - a unique idea that relied upon my own initiative for success. I can tell you with great confidence that I am convinced of this program's viability. In addition, I had the chance to meet Joe in person, so I had the first-hand experience to meet the innovator of Starscapes®.  You can tell a lot about someone when you meet face-to-face, and Joe's genuine desire to add to your success is blatantly evident. 
Luis F., Nebraska

It has been an exciting year with your company and I am still very happy I joined.  Thank you for your wonderful service and fantastic business opportunity.  I'm proud to be called a STARSCAPES®Artist. Terry C., Georgia

I've been doing jobs for friends and neighbors for the last couple of months, and I haven't really had the nerve or the confidence to do a job for money yet. But I got a call from someone who picked up my brochure from a local restaurant. They wanted me to do their boys' and girls' rooms. They didn't want it for themselves because they thought it was just for the kids, and the woman was really skeptical anyway. I had to come back the next night to finish the boys' room, but when I finished with the girls' room, they all came in to see it. Joe... I couldn't get them out of the room! Now, the parents wanted it too, along with having their hallway done, their living room done and their bathroom done! They told me that I wasn't charging enough for the work and they gave me a real nice bonus. I asked them if they'd be kind enough to write a referral letter for me, and they said it won't be needed. He's got me six jobs to do from the people he works for, and she's a nurse that is badly stressed out every day. She is telling everyone she works for to get it to relieve their heavy stress built up during the day. After I finished painting the boys' room, I went into the girls' room, and the mother was on the bed holding her daughter under the stars. Relaxing together. I feel that I'm doing the right thing for people. Joe... I've been working for years, (I do electrical work.) and nobody sees the work that I do. This feeling of appreciation I'm getting from these people overwhelms me. I feel good. I haven't felt this good for years. I just wanted you do know about this, and doing business with you and your company has always been good. I just wanted you to hear this story and to know how I feel. Thank you. Glen Hutchins, Michigan

I just did my first professional job for a little girl's room.  When I finished it, I packed up all my tools and equipment and walked down the hallway singing "When you wish upon a star...".  They all came running!  All four family members came in and when I turned off the lights, they all yelled WOWWWWW!!!  I had goosebumps all over my back I was so excited!  J.D. Bullock, Virginia

Joe, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the generous way you solved a problem I was having.  Each time I call into customer service it is a pleasant experience.  Your staff is always friendly and professional.  They do an excellent job.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for making this creative business available in the first place.  I am glad I ordered it and I'm looking forward o a successful future with it. Matt Wilkiel, California

I made an order from you on this past Friday and Purolator was here this morning.  Anyways thanks!  That was fast!  I know you are a busy man but the people in your office are great!  Please let them know that for me. Thank again.  Alex Sinclair in Alberta, Canada

Joe, thanks for making this so fun and easy.  I love it!  Lorraine in Colorado

Thank You very much Joe.  I knew that you would take care of everything, that's why you are the Man, and things are going pretty good I have a few jobs lines up for this weekend, mainly trade outs, like one guy is remodeling my garage apartment for doing his ceiling, and another is giving me a brand new treadmill for doing his, so things are pretty good.  Take Care and Thanks again.  Rick in Texas

It's Leanne here from New Zealand, I thought that I would drop you a quick line to let you know that my replacement of the demo pack arrived INTACT this time, now my enthusiasm has come back, naturally before I was disappointed, now I am absolutely over the moon. I first put the posters in my 2 girls rooms, my younger one is 3 years old, and she was totally blown away... her first reaction was "Oh that's just so pretty"!  To hear that come from her was awesome!!!!! My eldest daughter was also impressed. I have also shown my family, friends, neighbours and a couple of businesses and just to let you know how impressed they were, I will most definetely be purchasing the entire pack from you just as soon as I can come up with the money. I'm sure it will be much sooner than expected. Well done on your creation, I only hope that with the bonuses that come with the main pack, I can wipe New Zealand out with it!!!!! Thank you againLeanne in New Zealand

I want to thank you for this business opportunity, with the rate I'm going, I'll be debt free in no time thank you ALMIGHTY JOE.
Pls continue to send me those motivational and inspirational e-mails of yours, I love reading them.

By the way this past weekend we organized a booth demo at one of the shopping malls... As you said, everyone was amazed! 
K. Oile, Kenya

I got my STARSCAPES®package barely 3 weeks now and I've done 10 jobs so far. Men this business is great. I see a bright future in it provided one is ready to work. I had to forgo my job to start this business fulltime. I'm counting the stars and wouldn't stop till I count a million stars! L. Shogbamimu S.A.I., Republic of Ireland

My name is James Logue and I know your product is Awesome!  I ordered your Demo Package for $29.95. Once I received the posters and hung them up on the ceiling, My Parents, Neighbors, Friends and I were all amazed and in AWWWE!

Hi everyone......just want to say hi......I am here in Australia.......nice to know there are stars being painted by all of us  all over the planet......I am just about to concentrate more on promoting myself.....I love this's just getting people to actually see a ceiling...then they are sold.......nice to know we do something that gives so much joy....Joe has been incredibly supportive thanks to him and my best wishes to you all.  Kim, Australia

I have several jobs booked without any selling effort.  J. Truscott, Scotland

I used to go to bed and read but now I'm never too far from noddy land !!!  I'm asleep before you know it!!  And that's with just the poster!!!  I turned out the lights for my daughter and she just  gasped so loud!  About 5 minutes later, she said "This is byooootiful".  I have already ordered my StarBiz but can hardly wait to get it!  Davina in New Zealand

I was there! I saw it with my own eyes... I believe!  I flew on an airplane from Minnesota to the Starscapes International Office in Arizona so I could witness STARSCAPES® myself.  I wanted to see if it really is everything the website says it is.  Well folks... it's BETTER ... it's better than words can describe.  It is truly amazing!!!  It's unbelievable!!!  It's fantastic!!!  It's incredible!!!  Words can't describe it!!!!  My brother, who is one of the most cautious (and maybe even skeptical) person I know, went with me to the STARSCAPES® International Office.  His everyday work title is Operations Manager for Multi-States, Special Investigation Unit, for a very large insurance company overseeing the western half of the United States.  He investigates fraud!!!  He too, could not believe how incredible, unbelievable and realistic the STARSCAPES® experience was!  In fact... he wants STARSCAPES® ceilings done for both of his daughters and the master bedroom!!! M. Franzen S.A.I., Minnesota

Thank you for this opportunity.  So far I've only commenced barely four days ago and I've done three jobs  Two on promotions charging 100 euros each and the third one 170 euros plus 30 euros tip.  L. Shogbamimu S.A.I., Republic of Ireland

I've received you're emails and decided to take the plunge and get the deluxe kit after purchasing the intro kit.  I just ran across this surfing on the web for a home-based business that was no pyramid or scam.  My husband and I were of course in awe after we saw the demo and being in the area we are in, no one has ever heard of it, well, we got excited.    We have a couple rooms already and I am getting a business phone put in tomorrow.  Plus a whole other handful of ideas.  I basically wanted to thank you and your staff for the lightning fast shipping of the package.  I ordered it yesterday at 1pm our time and it was here at 10am the next day.  Thanks again.  Can't wait to start!!  Tracy l. Bier,  Illinois

Just a quick note to tell you of my 7-year-old Grandson, who had just stepped outside (around 9:30 p.m.), the other night.  He said, "Look (in complete amazement) Grandma Lorry!"  His head was tilted upwards and I followed his gaze. There was a great, unobscured view of the night sky, illuminated with MANY beautiful stars...I asked what he wanted me to look at....He replied, "Look, it looks just like the ceilings you paint."
What a compliment!  What can you say, but, "Out of the mouths of babes!"  Thanks again and the tips from you and the other readers makes this so much fun!! L. Velarde, Colorado

I would like to inform that I have done 2 jobs so far and been paid a total of US$667!.  I see a very bright future with STARSCAPES®
I thank almighty God for you and your team for creating so many smiles around the world.  Keep it up Joe. K. Oile, Kenya

Just wanted to let you lnow I recieved and am very happy with the Delux package.  I paint houses for a living and thought I would add STARSCAPES® as another service. Every customer I have shown a sample to has chosen to have one or more ceilings done!  I didn't think it would be so easy to sell but it is.  Thanks again for turning me on to the stars! W. Kash, North Carolina

I looked you guys up on the Better Business Bureau website you have an EXCELLANT report...tell people to check you guys out with them.  I've been checking on companies for 5 years now and this is the only company I've ran across with a perfect report and those guys are tuff!!  This won't be the last you hear from've already got me.........just waitin' on the money.  Thanks! Lynn Jones

For your info I have done my first few ceilings, including my first commercial job and they are fantastic.   I will be either daft or stupid (or both!) not to make cash out of this business, well done for sharing it in such an innovative way. Chris Roberts, U.K.

My husband and I received our Deluxe Biz package and are very excited.  The product is fantastic...  I want to first thank Joe and his staff for the wonderful way they treat EVERYONE and for the opportunity given to ANYONE.  Secondly, I want to thank all of you who have posted (to the Worldwide STARSCAPES® Inner Circle Group).  I just spent 8 hours reading and in some cases printing the archives.  You have all left me excited and ready to move forward. Your willingness to share your insight and practical tips to help us (newbies) succeed is definitely a blessing.  Thank you all for your gift!  C. Girault, Oregon

I placed my Amazing STARSCAPES® Demonstration Poster on my floor and practically fell through the floor!  B. Carlson, British Columbia

I created a STARSCAPES® Stargazing SkyLite for a customer in their dining room.  They later told me that their children wanted to sleep in there!  A. Graham, Kentucky

The demo boards we created were nice, but until we saw our first room (bathroom) completed, we weren't too sure about this new business opportunity.  Needless to say, now we are so excited about this new business!  M. Riley, Tennessee

I just painted a room for $1,200.00!  That's about $5.75 p/sq. ft.  I've been leaving "fliers" on front door knobs and giving "free demos" when they call.  I offered a 2 for 1 or 1/2 price special through the month end.  This customer didn't make the sale.  She paid regular price.   D. Schallert, Colorado

My husband says if I wake him up one more time to look at the demo board in the middle of the night, he's going to "kill" me!  Anyway... Thanks so much for pointing me in this direction, Joe.  We think you're a pretty cool dude. K. Harrison, Virginia

I 'll be painting 100 rooms at a local resort.  The owner got real excited when I told him that we'd give him a free STARSCAPES®
Stargazing Skylite above each spa in the rooms.  The agreement is $200 per room.  That should take my wife, daughter and I two weeks to complete.  S. Day, Utah

Thanks a Mil, No, I mean thanks a Million Stars...... Got the poster demo a few days ago and I wish you could see the expression on my face right now in an enactment of the tranquil experience---it's a picture worth those Million stars right now---It actually brought tears to my eyes andI was gasping for air.  Hubby and I were on our way:::::: out of this world taking those poster stars into our imagination and we both fell fastasleep!! AHHHHHHHHH.... In the next few weeks I will be ordering my KIT and want all the training you can provide!!!! I want to prepare like an athlete prepares for a game. Web and all!  I'm just going to live this new adventure and bring joy to those that need it and want it.Keep up the motivational e-mails- ~KIND REGARDS TO YOU AND YOURS.  V. Bartosh, California

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
on my ceiling not to far ,
up above my bed tonight, 
will make our future oh so bright.   John Holland S.A.I

    Needless to say, we are very excited about our new business (myself, spouse and daughter).  We spent a great deal of time perfecting our  technique (although there is always room for improvement), consulting with Joe and gathering a lot of helpful information from this Club. I can see everyone is totally committed to succeeding in this business and I get more excited everytime I turn around and no one has ever heard of it. Talk about a wide-open market! 
    Anyway, been in since April 2, 2002.  Have booked our first job for this Thursday, 4/25; charged $662 for one bedroom and doing the other for FREE (2 for 1 deal).  The customer has also asked us to give them an estimate for doing their Master BR. We are doing two skylite's for a house next week (charged $300 as they are getting one FREE)and have a bathroom and skylite booked also for next week ($500). 
    I have two hotels that we have given proposals to and am meeting with the VP of a brand new 290-unit apartment complex this week. Granted, I realize that all of these big ones may not come through but it gives us a great deal of hope from the standpoint that people (prospects) are willing to talk with us.   That is all we can hope for; just to get our foot in the door. 
    My point for this posting is that the market is virtually "untapped" and that you charge whatever the market will bear. We are a family of non- artists and do not particularly like to market anything. But, this is our business and every night when I go to bed and stare at my ceiling, I just get that more excited. We know that we have finally found a business that is going to change our lives. 
    Anyway, we wish all of our fellow  STARSCAPES® A-I, only the best. For any of you who have not yet "booked" jobs, do not give up! Do not get discouraged!  The name of the game is "perseverance". 
    I supplied our first customer with the Letter-Pak and they are quite happy to refer us to at least (5) other people. Incidentally, I told them if they were willing to do that we would put (3) shooting stars in each of the two BR's. So, it looks like we are off and running! 
    On a more personal note: All three of us want to thank you Joe. You have been such a help and inspiration to each of us. You provided us with a vehicle to get where we want to go. From what we have seen, so far, the road has not been heavily traveled and appears to be wide open for us to drive ourselves to a much better financial position. For that, we will always be grateful! Steve Day, Utah

Everyone I have shown is very interested and I am extremely excited about the business......Thanks! M. Obal, Virginia

I have my first job to do, two rooms 300 sq. feet each in one penthouse for a total of $1200.00.  2 days ago I had deposit 250$.  Tomorrow I'm going to do it!!! I. Mazur, Canada

I have been doing this now since September 1999 (three years).  Have painted 650-700 jobs at average $400 US.
Here are some of the commercial properties I have done.  Motel "Don Juan" Monterrey, NL Mexico, Motel Plaza in Escobedo, Motel Plaza in Santa Catarina, Motel Scala in Escobedo, Hotel Antaris suites in Garza Garcia (where some of the presidents of many countries stayed when the United Nation's conference took place here in Monterrey 2 weeks ago.)  Also... Spacio Spa in Monterrey, Linda's Theraphy SPA, Extra Time Bar & Grill, Observatory Bar & Pub, and Cervecería Cuahutemoc S.A (brewing company, Monterrey México (brewers of Bohemia beer)  H. Melendez, Mexico

I have an agreement with an interior designer/ remodeling outfit to sell my work for $7.50 per sq. ft., and to pay me $5 per sq. ft.  And I'm training seven of their salesmen.  By the way... I quit my other job!  R. Reed, California

I not only go to sleep with stars, I wake up with a big percentage still twinkling.  We advertised on a billboard for two days, cost abut $80 per day.  It read: "Breathtaking by Night -- Invisible by Day.  Thousands of Stars In Any Room!"  It generated about $8,000 worth of business so far, with lots of referrals pouring in.  We charge from $3 to $5 per square foot.  Will be building a display booth or buying a used RV for demonstrations at psychic fairs, and other shows.  Gotta fly, have to create another illusion---good luck to all. 
J. Sparks, Texas

 I did a Home Show this past weekend.  They held it during a blizzard.  Still had over 150 people visit my booth and sold 10 ceilings.  Many others were seriously interested.  Just imagine what would have happened if the weather had cooperated?  I'm really too busy with this STARSCAPES®!  I've got too many customers!  I may have to quit doing this as I have another business I have to run!  Norman S., Iowa

I love the new Super-10 Creation Paint!  Our first customer stated that her STARSCAPES® exceeded her wildest dreams!  We'll be charging $4 - $5 per square foot, going after the "high-end" market.  We love this business and are really excited about it!   R. Read, California

Our 3rd practice ceiling looks incredibly well, just like you said it would!  We're painting our first professional job tomorrow evening in a child's room.   The size is 170 square feet, and the price is $2 per, making it $340.  Part of the deal with the customer is that they would have their friends and neighbors over for the unveiling.   J. Sparks, Texas

Just a short note to let you know that we needed two more computers, networked together, and another computer to be fixed, here at Starscapes International.  The computer service repair man wanted STARSCAPES® in his 12' x 12' bedroom, so guess what happened?  Need I tell you?  I think it was a fair trade!  Oh, and by the way... last summer I traded two bedroom ceilings to have the exterior of my 3,000 square foot house painted!  Joe Petrashek, Starscapes International

I have been doing STARSCAPES ® for a couple of years now. I work it full time with another business I am doing. It's like Joe says. It sells itself!  People see it and they want it. It really is easy to do! My other business I do is personalized computer printouts. I believe you should diversify (have a variety) of things to offer your customers. I also double my chances of selling my products or services. It is not uncommon for me to sell both of my offerings to the same customer. I do the computer printouts because I enjoy doing them. There is no doubt in my mind that if I did just the STARSCAPES ® I would do very well! At this time I have a waiting list of customers who want the STARSCAPES ® . I do not have to advertise it. I get 80% of my sales by word of mouth. I live in a town of about 12,000 people so size of your town is not a factor. I would say if you want a business that is fun, easy to do, in great demand, and offers you a chance to be independent, than STARSCAPES ® is for you. Joe is a good guy. He will answer any questions you have and is always a phone call away. I have a Home Show here at the mall in March. It is my first one. I have a lot of people already who told me they are coming to my booth and bringing a friend. To be honest with you I may have to give up my other business to meet the demand.  I am always happy to share my ideas and marketing strategies with my fellow Starscapers. In case you are wondering, I am writing this on my own. I was not hired by anyone to say anything. I just decided to pay a visit to the site that got me started. I was a dreamer just like many of you. I decided to act on my dream and I have never looked back. Good luck to you all.  Norman S.,  IOWA, USA   (My gosh, Norman!  I got all choked up reading that.  You can't begin to imagine how wonderful all these kind words everyone sends us makes my staff and I feel.  I ask The Man every night to bless this business and I've not been let down.  Thank you. -Joe)

Joe, I just wanted to say, "This is awesome!" Got my package three days ago and have watched the video three times and read the owners manual four times. I am pretty saturated with the STARSCAPES® BTO manual. My brother-in-law and I did my bathroom ceiling and purposely went alot overboard. It looks good. We also did his bedroom ceiling, and that turned out better. We will be doing my bedroom ceiling today for the 3rd is a charm creation. Will let you know how it goes. Keep it up Joe. B. Kindrick, Oklahoma

Thank you for your demonstration and attention this afternoon at the showroom.  To say it mildly, we were both very impressed.  We talked about it all the way back home and when I arrived at home it was an easy sell to my wife.  I look forward to receiving the StarBiz package and learning how to do this process for making money at my own speed.  E. Zambrano, Utah

While everyone must do their own due diligence. Here is what I can tell you.  I have been working with Joe Petrashek (he *is* STARSCAPES ® ) since I started NOBOSS in 1995 and have sent him hundreds and hundreds of inquiries.  I've never had one adverse feedback in all the years.  In my own dealings with Joe, I've developed a respect for him as an entrepreneur and a businessman-of-integrity.  If I were not totally committed and involved with NOBOSS... and the basic business of being an online publisher... there are two home-based biz-opps I'd be personally exploring (there are easily many many more that I believe are viable... but there are two that would intrigue me personally and that I'd not hesitate to try myself.  One is vending machines.  The other
is STARSCAPES ®. Dan Schwartz, publisher NOBOSS.COM  National Organization of Business Opportunity Seekers

My name is Gary and I'm one of the newest artist-illusionists to come on board. Got my deluxe kit about 2 weeks ago. I've done 5 jobs (one for pay).  As a newbie I can't add much except to say that the first room I did was my own. The effect is great, but I thought the main stars a little too big. I did my older sons room next. Got the proportions much better and more realistic looking, to my eye. However, my first sale came from a friend of my son who saw my room and ordered immediately. When I finished my sons room, I had my soon to be paying customer look at it to tell me which sizing he liked best.  He chose my room. Several of his other friends agree. I have one more paying order scheduled and he wants the larger size. I've decided to offer the 'view from space' and the 'view from earth'. If my customers want the more dramatic larger size I will give them what they want.  One more thing... I was away from my home for the Thanksgiving holiday. I found I missed my view of the stars each night when I went to bed. This is one fantastic and innovative opportunity.  G. Lewis - Texas

I just did my  first "real" paying job.  It really looked like you were in space!  This was a surprise for a ladies boyfriend, tomorrow is his birthday. Just the night before he told her he wanted to get about a thousand of those glow in the dark stick-up stars!  When I was done I brought her in and had her lay on the bed and when she opened her eyes, she just gasped!  I originally told her a price of $149, and when she was paying me she handed me two bills, which I thought was a $100 and a $50, and she said to keep the change and I looked down and it was 2 $100 bills!!! Then she made the comment that I should charge "MORE"!!!  Needless to say, I'm excited!!!  I figure if I can get just 3 jobs a week, I can replace my income from my job!  Well, I don't think it will be all that hard now!  I do my next job on Sunday!  Wish me luck!  Thanks Joe!  L. Schroeder, Kansas

Thank YOU!!!  He absolutely LOVED it.  I went ahead and covered up both windows with black garbage bags for the "full" effect and had left the lights on until he got home at 3:30am.  When he got home, I blindfolded him and led him to the bedroom where I had him lay down while I turned off all the lights.  I lied down next to him and unblindfolded him. His reaction was, "OOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOL".  He got so lost in those stars!  He found it incredibly amazing.  Now I don't know if it was the cigarette smoke or what, LOL, but those stars shimmer.  Joey thought I actually took dental floss and hung all those stars from the ceiling until I turned the light on and he goes, "Hey, where'd they go?"   (From a lady that surprised her boyfriend with STARSCAPES ®!)

Hi, Joe!  I'm so excited!  My package came this weekend and I just painted all the bedrooms in the house, and my 5 year old daughter is going crazy about STARSCAPES ® !  My wife even loves it!  All the people that we've shown it to, want it.  I did the Lost in Space Fantasy theme in my room, because I figured that I'll need the practice.  I read your materials, the business manual, and watched the video tape, and you said it would be fun.  Well, I took that with a "grain of salt".  I did... I really had fun!  I've got  so many promotional ideas, I can barely contain myself. David L., Ontario, Canada

I just got my demo poster yesterday and it is totally awesome. Me and the kids love it.  Donna H.

Joe, I just wanted to thank you for this chance to make easy money! Everything you said came true! I practiced in two rooms in my home, and then did a co-workers son's room. No sooner did I turn the lights out, all I heard was 'I want this in my room'! I sold three more rooms in less than five minutes! I am a true believer in your product and your business offer, it really does work. My next job is for a school and I can't wait to hear the oohs and aahs when I unveil my creation! Once again Joe, thanks, for helping me reach for the stars,and, catching them! Mark N., South Carolina

Your product is brilliant - literally. Patrick N., South Africa

Look I have been doing this for 2 years, but in fact I have been doing this full time for the last 12 months, in this time I have painted about 350 STARSCAPES® and I still feel the same feeling I had when I painted My own room for a  first time, (even when it was a mess).  I have meet many people who I painted a STARSCAPES® for, some of them are  rich some of them not that much,some others poor,  but all of them have something in common:  They say WOW!!!!! until their jaws falls to the floor.  I have heard them when I am at the supermarket or a gas station, -hey look honey, that is the starsman, and they come to say hi, and thanks for the STARSCAPES® and start to talk about many things.  This is the best reward an artist can have, plus, of course, the monetary reward.  Thats why I am still very excited about this.  Remember:  A marathon starts with the first step.  You've already done that.  Keep reaching for the stars!!  Your friend, Humberto M., Mexico

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be able to do business with you!  I see an ending in my life -- an ending of abject poverty, struggle, and financial limitation.  But since this has been all I've known, I can hardly imagine the ease and freedom of my new life.  I see this as a valuable skill that will support me and give me freedom.  Cariner M., Victoria, B.C.

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity. My adult son just had a ceiling done in his home and loves it !! Bob & Carol B.

I just did my first two practice rooms in my apartment and wow it looks really great especially the second bedroom I did. I have started to place some lawn signs for advertising I own apartments in Salt Lake City Utah, and hope to some business out them. You really have a great business opportunity here and its  something anyone can do. I was kinda of skeptical when I first started out yesterday but today I believe I have found something I enjoy doing, and I can do it =0) Anyway you  will be hearing from me often, I need to call and order some more paint. Thanks a million Joe  Matthew F., Utah

Just got your package.  What an amazing system!  I currently paint murals and this is the most incredible thing I've seen.  Everybody just flipped over the Amazing Demo Poster!  And I'm honored to actually be talking to you!  S. Smith, Florida

We installed STARSCAPES ® in all the guests bedrooms and waited for the comments!  Well!  They loved it!!  We would recommend STARSCAPES ® to all Hotel, motel or Guest house!  Just watch the faces of the customers when they see the effect!!! 
V. Tenanty, Crown Hotel, Kingskettle, Scotland

Joe, got our package yesterday, made the sample poster and was blown away with the look. Gonna  do our daugthers ceiling this week end.. maybe just a portal but really think this is great stuff. You may notice from my signature that I am a realtor now and will continue with that.. but have some lean times now and then so need some supplemental income. Looking forward to getting started.
J. Rinehart, South Dakota

I just booked my first job!  I'm so excited!  I took my new demonstration poster to work with me, showed a friend, and he wants it in his bedroom, his living room, and his den.  He also asked me if he could borrow the poster to show his friends.  Of course I said YEAH!  C.Khelfa, Virginia

I made over $7,000 US last month! E. Morales, Guatemala

I just completed one job in a 12' x 14' room and it took me 33 minutes.  J. Petrashek, Arizona

I've just completed my 1st job!  They paid me ELEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS!  It was a dining room, bathroom and a 5' diameter STARSCAPES® Stargazing Skylite!  Now I'm going to raise my price of $2 per square foot!  P. Gooding, Ontario

Wow, this is the most amazing program I have ever seen.  D. Carney

Just received my package... It's awesome!  I'm surprised I got it so fast!  Can't wait to get started!  K. Modder, Florida

Joe, I've just finished sculpting my fourth ceiling. It turned out fantastic.  It was my daughter Katie's room and she just loves it. My third job was our patio which is 15 by 30 and that one came out great also. I used Creation 3 on the patio and 10 on Katie's room which, is the first time I've used it. It looks great. I'm going to do our bedroom next and I'll do my son's room when he gets back home later this summer as he wants to have input on it. I'm working on getting a couple of jobs and hope to being doing them within the next couple of weeks.  You were right about doing a couple of practice jobs first which I did in two 
bathrooms. I keep amazing myself with how well the next one turns out.  All of your instructions and suggestions on how to apply the different techniques works very well.  Thanks again for the opportunity of a life time. I'll keep you posted as to how things are going.  Sincerely, T. Shea, Florida 

I practised on our bathroom today, my wife and I spent the last half an hour lying on the bathroom floor, absolutely amazing!!!  It really does look like you're lying under the stars, you don't really believe it until you see it. K. Lewis, United Kingdom

Joe, thanks for allowing me to visit your showroom. It's incredible. I was in Las Vegas for my wife's business conference and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to come see your showroom in Phoenix. I've only done one practice room myself, and although I didn't do to many things correctly, it still turned out pretty impressive. I showed my two kids, Derek and Katie, the room when they got home from school, and they thought it was the coolest thing on Earth.  Of course they went and gathered up all there friends.  Now they all want one on their ceiling too!  Your STARSCAPES ® showroom is GREAT!  Thanks for all the neat ideas and tips.  I also got to meet Linda and put a face to her voice.  What a sweetheart she is.  You two were great hosts!  Thanks a million!   P.S: If you're ever in Florida, stop by and look us up.
T. Shea, Florida

Dear Joe,  Thank you for all the info. Bravo!!! I think your product and info and website are top notch.  I have been researching and trying home-based businesses for a few years now  and most are failures filled w/deceptions. Then  I saw STARSCAPES® .  I could really sink my teeth into this one.  Unfortunately for me, I am so strapped for cash, I just can't come up w/the money for this wonderful business. I'm in a catch-22 position. I really need a hom-based business to get out of debt, yet I can't get the money from any other resource. I really don't know what to do. I'm not trying to burden you w/this, I'm just venting my utter frustration. I'm praying GOD will lead me in the right direction in getting this money for your business.  As soon as I get the money I will definately  purchase.  GOD bless you.
        (Later...)  Saw my demo poster.  You were right, unbelievable. I mean just unbelievable.  Soon as I get my money I will purchase.  Tthanks Joe.  Yours truly, R. Christiano, Florida

I am doing about one a week now.  Slowly getting into it.  I really enjoy doing it!  The people I have done, really love it.  Mostly word of mouth so for until I get really good at it.  L. Papp, Ontario

Hello Joe, Tonight was a great night !  I have seen your Video.  It was nice to see you and hear your voice.  Of course it was helpfull to see how it really works.   We are exciting about the result.   I can smell the $$ coming as well as the fun to do it.  P. Jonveaux, France

...I went right to work on my own ceiling... and the most incredible STARSCAPES® mural quickly began to show up on my ceiling.  I felt as though I had been doing this for years.  It's BEAUTIFUL!  Even my skeptical husband loves it!  L. Ross, Pennsylvania  (Lisa, your full story is in the "Inner Circle" archives.  It's wonderful!  -Joe )

On my last job they just laid there and said about 20 times, "This is awesome!  I can't believe it!"  Without exception... Everyone always says "Wow"!  Joe, I'm having the time of my life with this!  Thanks!  L. Watts, California

Joe,   I wanted to thank you for taking the time to answer my questions today.  I also wanted to tell you how excited we are about STARSCAPES®... this is truly as awesome as you said it would be!!!  And customer service.... WOW!   The first room we painted was the bathroom (as you suggested) and when our 4-year-old grandson first saw it, we couldn't get him out!  He stood on a stool so he could reach the light switch and kept turning the lights on and off so he could see the stars, shooting stars, and milky way.  He couldn't wait to get them in his own bedroom --- but then, neither could I.  We are definitely sold on STARSCAPES ® .  I think our feelings are best summed up with the same words that we hear every time we show off our own STARSCAPES ® .  "Oh WOW, this is awesome!"  Thanks again, we are looking forward to a long and profitable association with you and STARSCAPES ® . D. & K. Woolery, Missouri

When I contracted with Joe to decorate my son's room, I based this decision on one of his advertisements in a local newspaper.  His professionalism and eagerness to demonstrate his artistic abilities had me excited to see the end results.  With a lot of expectations, I waited for Joe to finish his work.  Finally, he opened the door, and with an artistic humbleness, Joe prepared me to see the work with a few minutes of well-rehearsed meditations.  When the lights went out, my breath escaped me as I beheld the universe before me in my son's bedroom.  I can't wait until we can do more... Matt Rigberg, Arizona 

I did my first painting for my sisters kids and they freaked out!  R. Provance, Missouri

Thank you, Joe, for the marvelous STARSCAPES® that you did at our spa.  It is much enjoyed and appreciated.  I hope you will drop in sometime to take a "dip".  C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

Would you like to know someone who is famous and has STARSCAPES®?  I painted today four Room Expansion Fantasies and one Original STARSCAPES ® ceiling mural (in a home theatre) for a Mexican national soccer team player in his home, his name is Claudio Suarez.  Humberto Melendez, Mexico

Boy, I really didn't think I could do it, but I did!  What a satisfying feeling knowing I can really do it.  The Milky Way came out beautiful!  I did it just as Joe taught on the tape.  The owner loved it, so did his neighbor.  He wants me to come back and do a ROOM EXPANSION fantasy in the same room!  I am now very excited and enthusiastic about STARSCAPES® because I now know I CAN do this! Making people happy and making good money... what more can you ask for?
P. Varga, Ohio

Joe:  Believe it or not, we finally got our first order for a room, it`s from a massage therapist.  She will refer us to her neighbors and customers, and there was no haggling about the price of  $895.00.  1/2 down and the balance upon completion.  We just saw her tonite and it looks like we`ll start Sunday morning.  Dan is really excited and wants his own STARSCAPES ® jacket.  We appreciate the help.  Mighty good wages if you ask me!
D. Duffy and J. Foley, Georgia

I'm Nancee Malone and I just recently purchased the Starbiz package.  I painted my son's room and it looks great!  He showed his friends and they are still talking about it.  They want me to do their rooms now.  :-) N. Malone, Iowa

I am so excited about painting ceilings that I am willing to paint several free for promotion and referrals.  C. Windish, Florida

I have very GOOD NEWS!!!  Next week ( Monday Dec. 18th) I am going to paint a STARSCAPES® at  the "HOTEL TAPATIO"  presidential suite, here in Guadalajara, and I will paint another one at the the hotel's owner daughter  home! ...but things are coming out even better!!!... I  already have booked another job for next tuesday (Dec. 19th), can you belive that?... This is great, just like you said! J. Flores, Guadalajara, Mexico

When I received my STARSCAPES® Starbiz package, to be honest, I was a little dissapointed at the beginning because everything looked so simple, but when I finished my first room, I was completely astonished and last night when I finished my second test room, I couldn't believe my eyes.  It was hard to believe that I had done it with such simple techniques and tools...  just incredible.  L. Aponte, Venezuela

I received my STARSCAPES® package yesterday and painted my first room last night.  Went rather well, other than a few "too-large" stars : )  I'll keep you posted on my progress. A. Hague, Utah  (We're looking forward to your posts, Allison!)

Last month I painted my 100th STARSCAPES ®, it may not sound spectacular for some of you , but I painted 3 or 4 special STARSCAPES®:
 Oct 1th I charged $1,047.12 USD for a room,
 Oct 5th I charged $ 800.00 USD for another,
 Oct 8th I charged $ 1,026 for 3 medium size rooms at the same home.
 Oct 30th I charged $1507.83 USD for the last one that month. October average price was $ 497.00 USD for a piece. Humberto Melendez, Mexico

I just returned from a weeklong pleasure trip of about 1600 miles.  I made the trip in my work van and how do you suppose I paid for the trip?  That's right!!!  I left stardust wherever I went.  I started by showing someone the demo poster and it snowballed from there.  I had to make sure that I didn't overbook as I only had a week.  The only advertising was by word-of-mouth.  It was great fun, and I have people that want me to come back and do their ceilings.  I have never seen a business as great as this one.  Remember:  The sky is the limit.  C. Williams, New Mexico

Hello Joe and Starscapes staff.  I believe in STARSCAPES®!  I made my demo poster last night and I was amazed! Showed my family and we all started stargazing!  I am going to do this soon!  N. Alexander, California

Our STARSCAPES® Deluxe package arrived and are we ever excited!  Our bathroom was the first room to receive the "treatment".  Results, could have been better but that was our first try.  The second room, our daycare play room, was better.  But, our guest room came out great! And just in time for company that will be arriving from Kenya on Friday, October 20, 2000.  Are they in for a treat.  They will be sleeping under the stars and even the Milky Way is visible! This is a wonderful business venture!  We are almost ready to hit the streets!  Thanks for such an awsome opportunity, Joe.  We will stop in some time to meet you in person. D. & L. LaCelle, Idaho (Come and see us anytime, D & L!)

I have been with STARSCAPES® for 4 months now. I just love it. I am seriously considering quitting my job and doing STARSCAPES® full time! It is the most fun I have ever had. It is a service that sells itself, people love it, and is quite easy to do. With STARSCAPES® you are only limited by your own imagination. No ceilings are exactly alike, and you can't make a mistake. I have done several ceilings. I charge $179.00 per ceiling and I have a people on a waiting list because I do not have enough time in the day to do them all. Joe is great! Whenever I have a question I call him directly and get fast answers. I will be doing STARSCAPES ® full-time very soon and I am never going to look back. My future is before me. Thank you STARSCAPES®!
Norman S.,  Iowa  (It looks like you're doing everything right, Norm!)

We completed our first job today and it went very well, we have 4 more scheduled for early next week @ $200 a pop. We are very pleased to say the least  Your description of the response when people see the work is exactly what you told us it would be . The first viewing of the work we did in our own home resulted in five bookings... and they all said the same thing... we want one, when can you come over?  My hats off to you Joe!
D. and L., Alberta, Canada.  (My hats off to YOU, D & L!)

Hi Joseph!  Guess what! I am getting (building) a house, that's the bad news! :)   The good news is I have a deal with the HOME BUILDERS to do STARSCAPES® for all the other people who would like that in there new homes!!!!!!  They loved the presentation I did, and they want it for there homes!!!  I knew this would work!!!  I have the presentation area all set up!  Its in their open house!!!  God Bless You!!  H. Barnett, Oklahoma (Thanks so much, Hans!)

I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and respect for all at Starscapes International.  I have had the experience to witness first hand your honesty and integrity, which we all know is rare these days.  Being based in Australia I was at first skeptical at the service I might receive being so far away, however I must say I have had all my queries answered promptly and politely within 24 hours, my STARSCAPES ® package arrived in perfect condition, as did my galactification machine.  I happily recommend the STARSCAPES ® package and Starscapes/Voyager Industries for anybody who is serious about starting their own business and are looking for an honest company to assist them in their journey. M. Booth, Australia

I did a STARSCAPES® "Lost in Space Fantasy" for a friend and neighbor of mine, who also is a realtor. She knows a great many people, and of course has many new contacts. This is absolutely the best painting I have done yet, and it is really something to see.  When I was ready to show her the finished product, I asked her to lay on the bed, and I had the bright overhead light on. I told her to keep her eyes shut, but not to tightly, until I said it was ok to open them. I turned off the light and waited 10 or 20 seconds, and said ok. All you could hear was a slight gasp coming from the bed! Then there was the "Oh my God, this is fantastic!" I got a $65.00 tip out of this one!  All for now, I thought that I would share with you! B. McIntyre, Washington

I was newly divorced when I started with STARSCAPES ® My wife got everything.  Boat, travel trailer, house.  I got my three daughters and the clothes on our backs.  Currently, I live with my parents.  I had $188 dollars in my pocket of which I placed an add in my local newspaper for $187.  One week later, I had over $3,000 in my pocket.  I have done 15 jobs in the last 7 days.  (2 per day with 3 on Tuesday.)   I charge for a 12 x 12 room, 1,999 pesos which is US$210.  Most of my customers want the entire ceiling and walls done.  My average job is $250.  I have 5 more jobs booked this week, 2 of which were from referrals.  I would like to be the National Distributor for Mexico. STARSCAPES ® is the best job I have ever had.  It is relaxing.  I listen to my favorite '70's music while I work.  Mr. Petrashek does not exaggerate one bit about STARSCAPES® .    I love it!  People that see it, just say WOW!  Kids that see it cry because they want it too. H. Melendez, Monterey, Mexico (Update:  Humberto received $800 for a one room job!  Great going, Humberto!  You're a shooting star!).  (Latest update:  Average job increased to $350.  Doing 1,2, or 3 jobs a day.  Foreseeable 1st year cash earnings of $132,000-$245,000.  That's over a million dollars in about 4-7 years.)

WOW ! you guys are the greatest! Jeanne saw her name up on our web page and was ecstatic.  Thanks again for all of your help.  You are truly a good company to be associated with.  Have a GREAT DAY!!!
M. & J. Amann, Illinois

We have had the privilege of having this done in a very special room and it is unbelievable how real it seems! It is both calming and exhilerating at the same time. This is a great invention! B. Carter,  Nevada

The video is GREAT!!!!  Well done!  Thanks!  I get the feeling I will be part of a great team!  K. Carey, Australia

Dear Joe and Jill and Dee,
You can bet I was standing in line this morning waiting for the post office to open------and sure enough, there was the package you promised.  Everything arrived in fine condition; and in an hour or so our bathroom will be receiving the "royal treatment".  It just happens that we are having the outside of the house painted this week----don't you know I'm gonna drag those painters upstairs and open their eyes to a whole new source of income---theirs and ours!
    Gayle and I can't thank you enough for the tour of the showroom.  We didn't know what to expect when we arrived.  Your friendliness, openness, and enthusiasm sure made an impression on a couple of "shell shocked Internet survivors".  In the last three years I have tried every scheme and scam the Internet has to offer.
    The real reason that we came to visit the showroom in person was that Gayle simply was not about to let me take another "flyer"-----without some adult supervision----HERS.  Did you notice that she had her back up when we walked in?  Did you also notice that her back relaxed about the same time her jaw dropped when she saw the ceiling in the showroom??  I was a believer before we arrived-----but I'm easy.
You and Jill did such a great job of answering all of our questions!  By the time we left, Gayle was "seeing stars"---EVERYWHERE!
Our home office will soon be changed into our own STARSCAPES® SHOWROOM.
    Nobody yet has asked for my advice, but here it is anyhow: If you are even considering "stars" in your future: Walk, fly, drive, crawl if you have to, but somehow get to Phoenix.  Spend an hour as we did with Joe, Jill and Dee.  If you can then decide that the STARSCAPES® BUSINESS isn't for you at this time-----you will at least want to hire one of the rest of us to add STARSCAPES ® to your own house.
    All the best,  F. and G. Hoffman
PS.  If Phoenix is too far, give us about a week and we will have a showroom set up in Illinois.  (We can't wait to see you again!)

I just want to tell you that I have received the package, gone through the manual, tried out the demo, and watched the video.  It was really fun and exciting experience!  J. Kitnithee, Thailand

This is a dream come true for me.  J. Lee, New Jersey

Joe, thanks for your wonderful opportunity to help myself as well as others!!    L. Finnell, Texas

I'm unhappy working my butt off for someone else to make all the money.  So I'm seeking Liberation, Freedom, and Independence from Corporate Slavery.  Finding the right product to sell has always been the Big Thing with me, if I don't like it no one else will either!  I love the idea and concepts behind STARSCAPES ®, that's what will make it a breeze to sell!  I have shown the Demo Poster to friends and have 2 jobs pending.    Thanks again Joe, I look forward to a long and profitable business relationship with you.  L. Slay, Texas

I was finally able to do 3 ceilings, in my home.  And my bathroom ceiling is now incredibly beautiful!  I still had trouble with the milky way, but now I have it down pat!  My only problem now is deciding which of the other two rooms to sleep in at night!   Each one is different, but beautiful in its own way, and the problem is that if I am sleeping in one, I am missing the other!  Last night I watched in one room until it faded away, and then went and watched in the other room, until I fell asleep!  What a wonderful, peaceful, healing way to go to sleep at night!  Finally, after three ceilings, I feel confident to go out and do STARSCAPES ® for other people!  That is the scary and hard part.... actually doing the STARSCAPES® is fun!  I also want to say that even if I never did STARSCAPES ® for money, just being able to do it for my own enjoyment would make it worth so much more than I paid for it!  A. Suthers, California

Your training video is one of the best I have ever seen!  The slow, careful way in which you explain and demonstrate everything makes doing STARSCAPES® easy and fun!  I especially liked the close-ups of what you were doing..... and all the tips you gave from your personal experience brought me right up to where I needed to be to feel confident doing my very firstSTARSCAPES® ! A. Suthers, California

FANTASTIC package... Thank you!!  Galactified!!!!!! S. Daugherty, California

Everyone loves it!  I already have 3 jobs booked at $159 each, and have 4 pending.  I'm really enjoying this!  I have done 3 ceilings and they all look great!  I am very excited about the possibilities that STARSCAPES® has given me.  I have tried many business opportunities and have been ripped off by ALL of them or they have not lived up to what they had promised.  I am VERY excited about STARSCAPES® and truly believe that it offers me a chance to make money.  All I have to do is work at it a little bit.  It offers a great product that people want.  It's original, and it's fun to do!  It sells itself and the potential for word of mouth advertising and referral customers is almost a gaurantee.  I have NO doubt that once I get this thing going I am going to have more customers than I will know what to do with. Thank you Joe!  Norman S., Iowa

We have our first 4 jobs to do today.  Thank you for all the e-mails you send.  They have some great ideas in them!  You do have great customer service!  D. McGregor in Nova Scotia.

Thanks for your prompt attention and the package is great.
B. Berkeley, Painter of Dreams™, North Carolina .

Just a tidbit of info I thought might interest you. We operate a computer retail store and thought STARSCAPES® would be an interesting and unique sideline for us. Two days ago we ran a full frontpage ad in our local "shopper paper".  Half of the page was for our computer systems and the other half we dedicated to STARSCAPES ®.  In the past two days, we've scheduled six STARSCAPES ® jobs and an equal number of in-home demos, but sold only two computers.  I wonder how long it will be before computers are our sideline?  Bravo STARSCAPES®! K. Binning, Iowa

I looked at the poster put up on the bathroom wall.... the stars were so bright, they shimmered as if alive!   I added a milkyway to it.  The effect is gorgeous!  It's stunning!  I put the poster on the bedroom wall last night just so I could go to sleep watching it!  Thanks for all your help!
A. Suthers, California

I just couldn't believe it.  It's just like sitting on my deck up in the Bradshaw National Forest in northern Arizona!
R. Oberly, Utah

Just thought I'd drop you a quick note and let you know that my package arrived.  I've been busy learning the techniques.  I have now completed my guest bathroom, guest bedroom, and my bedroom and I've learned quite a bit about the process.  I've done several shooting stars and I put the milky way up in my bedroom as well.  I encountered a few problems and made a few mistakes but still the ceilings turned out great.   My bedroom ceiling, being the last one I did, turned out best of all.  Even with mistakes, the ceilings are beautiful.  It's difficult to do a bad STARSCAPES® .  I love the illusions I've created!   I can't wait to start marketing this and bringing it to the public.  I'm looking forward to a long and prosperous future with STARSCAPES® .
J. Nelson, Washington

Worth every penny!  J. & J. Teron, Canada

I Love this business!  It's me!  R. Armstrong, Indiana

I made myself impressed the other day, by the result of the application in my son's room!   I did put  lots of stars, 10 foot milky way which is stunning, and 3 shooting stars, all according to your instruction. K. Choi, Maryland

Joe, it's just like you said.  People see it... they want it!  Every time I show it, I hear, "Oh, my God!  When can you do mine?!".  And I love doing STARSCAPES® .  To me... it's not work.  I enjoy it!
D. Iacomacci, Utah

The sun is out; the air is crisp and clear and thanks to this opportunity, life feels really good this
morning.  T. Sims, . England

I don't know how to thank you for this wonderful opportunity!  I will be forever indebted to you!  Thank you again!  You have made me the happiest that I have been in a very very long time.  I know that GOD will always be watching over you for this.  Again thank you ever so much.

I showed them, and all the skeptics just said "WOW!".

Mr. Petrashek teaches you the secrets to becoming your community's next Michelangelo! If you're looking for something unusual and fun to build a business in - this is as fun as it gets!
Stony Roberts, columnist for Cutting Edge Opportunities Magazine

A complete money-making business package. An opportunity, and it appears to be a solid one, concerns itself with STARSCAPES ® ILLUSION MURALS that can turn the ceiling of any bedroom into a celestial wonder. One can gaze up at an accurate three-dimensional life-like painting of the evening sky, with thousands of stars, constellations, and even the Milky Way. The comprehensive manual shows you exactly how it's done, and how you can make up to $100 an hour with this unique business opportunity. This brief review can not do justice in describing this unique money-making plan. This opportunity has great merit.
Russ von Hoelscher, columnist and publisher of Insiders Money-Making Report

It's a complete business package - and a good one. The instruction manual shows exactly how it's done. The instructions are easy to follow. The manual is impressive, and I have no doubt that anyone who gives it a chance an make good money with it. (Even if you just earned $50 per hour)...this would be a worthwhile part-time venture.
Stew Caverly, nationwide publisher and newspaper/magazine columnist

To say the least I was very impressed (with materials)! I couldn't wait to try out the Amazing Demo Poster.  Then, when I took my finished painting in a dark room, I was shocked and awed. I'd gladly pay $100 for someone to do it for me.
Victoria Ring, president Graphico publishing, The Grapevine Journal, The 'Good People' Book

I just received my package on Friday.  I completed my closet, my daughter's room, and our room.  I have three jobs set for the end of this week.  I will not charge for these jobs so that I can get some customers other than myself and get the word out.  I know it will go great.  It is so easy and so realistic.  I had been looking for an opportunity that I could realistically do and make some extra money.  My wife and I just had our second child and we were looking for a way for her to stay home and take care of our children. We think we just found it.  Thanks for the opportunity to try and make it a reality.
Johnny R., Texas

I simply feel that my dreams will really come true with STARSCAPES®. Joseph Cheung, China

I just wanted to tell you how impressed my husband and I are with your program. It is everything you said it is and more.  Boy, talk about having the world at your feet!  We are so excited.  God Bless You!
A. Stovall, Colorado

I am certainly impressed with your polite marketing skills, and though persistant, not obtrusive.  Russ

Thanks for the opportunity!.  Marilyn Graff

So far I have done 10 homes.  Everything is going fine.  Once again, thank u sir for teaching me this business.
A. Hussain, India

Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?
D. Lockett

I got my demo poster and it is truly "awesome!"....the whole family loves it.  There is no doubt that this is the business opportunity I've waited for.
       One Week Later...
I just HAD to write to let you know how pleased we are with our STARSCAPES® StarBiz package.  I have done 3 ceilings this week and plan to do a few more (for practice) before I start charging... The response has been excellent, and everyone that sees it (and I do mean everyone!), wants a STARSCAPES® of their own!  Thank you so much for helping me get started.  The video really helped me alot.  I've watched it at least 6 times so far.  I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with your fine company.  Very Warmly,
J. Owens, Virginia

Your business was a Godsend, and I'm so pleased that I found it online.  I had been looking online for a business to do and after weeks of looking was tired and beat and about to give up when I stumbled onto your site.  You have to feel good knowing that you have helped so many people achieve personal satisfaction and freedom from the hum-drum of day to day life.  Thank you for giving me my life back and letting me control my destiny.  May God bless you.
S. Moore

Dear Joseph,
I don't know if you remember me or not, but I thought I would email you and update you with what has gone on since we last talked.  The last time we talked on the phone I was having trouble with the paint.  I honestly thought that you would tell me " sorry, but no refunds. "  Instead you did something totally out of the ordinary in today's world.  You apologized for the problem and sent me two more bottles of paint. That just blew me away.  Well, when I received the paint I just sat it on the shelf in the garage with really no intent on pushing painting any ceilings.  About six months went by and my employer was beginning to lay people off.  I didn't know if I would be one of them or not so I figured that I had better prepare myself just in case I was.  So I broke out the STARSCAPES ® paint and painted my kids bedroom, UNBELIEVABLE!  Everyone was excited.  I showed it to a couple of friends and they hired me to do theirs and the referrals are now rolling in.  I started at just $50 a ceiling, but have now upped the price to $100 a ceiling.  I apologize for doubting the idea and the process.  I look forward to a long and prosperous business relationship with STARSCAPES®.  Sincerely, J. Phillips

About STARSCAPES® ... all I can say about it is WOW!!!!!!  I received the demo poster yesterday, tried looking at it during the day and was disappointed.  However, I thought, "I'll wait until tonight".  I just couldn't believe how fantastic it looked!  I must have re-energised it 20 times just to keep looking at it.  It really is absolutely amazing!  My mother and my fiancee both think it looks great too.  I'm looking forward to painting the whole ceiling as even though the demo poster looks fantastic... you can't quite get the whole feel of it with just the poster.  I know however that once the ceiling is painted it's going to be amazing.  I've already lined up my fiancee's daughter to do her room first ... she's going to have a whole bunch of friends over to see it once it's completed.
S. Rykmans, Australia

I got my demo poster and it is truly "awesome!"....the whole family loves it ...there is no doubt that this is the business opportunity I've waited for.

Have received demo poster today and were blown away.  Very impressive will order soon!

I had an exciting conversation with the organizer of our city's Home and Garden annual show.  He said that there were no spots left available.  When I explained to him what the "product" was, he responded, "I think that would go over great at our show.  I'll try to make some room"!!!
K. Weber

C. James, Michigan -

I got the STARSCAPES® poster you sent me the other day and I think it looks great.  I taped it to the ceiling above my bed. It really does look like I have a hole in my ceiling.  I think it's awesome!  I'm definitely considering buying the package for myself first, then to sell to others.
E. Rosario, Montana

I have received my package and reviewed the material contained therein and am even more excited than I was previously.

After doing a couple really nice Starscapes ® in nice neighborhoods, I can see where I can earn what is a weeks wages for some people on a single Saturday evening, and have a great time doing it!

I am extremely excited about this opportunity. I am an amateur astronomer and I have taught chemistry,physics, astronomy, and biology as well as calculus on the collegiate level.  Thanks for everything.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate you.  God Bless you all.  K. Fisher, Virginia

I received my order in good order and am impressed with everything I received.  I am more than happy with this Business Opportunity.  I am really excited about this business and am sure it is going to be a big success here in my home town.  I have done one ceiling in my house, and I must say... it looks good.  So real, and the end result is just magnificent - really relaxing.  My grandchild, she and her mother stay with us, is so impressed she just wanted to phone all her mates to come and have a look.  She is going to make money out of her granddad.  I have already got 5 orders that I will do in the next two weeks.  I just want to do two more in my house and then I will be ready for the big ones.  The Satin Jacket is "r-e-a-l c-o-o-l".  I am really satisfied.  I want to thank you for this opportunity that you are giving away.  God Bless You and your Business.
I. Kemp, South Africa

We completed a job Sat for the mother of a 17 year old girl...she had her room "starscaped" as a
surprise when she returns home from vacation with her father.  As it was, a friend of hers had just stopped by as we were preparing to "show" our customer the completed job.  They both went in the room, layed down on the bed and the "Wows" and "Ahs" made our work (fun) complete!  They were both soooo amazed at the finished room, it brought so much satisfaction and joy for us at a job well done.  She can hardly wait to tell all the folks she works with.  I'm still amazed myself, it's so beautiful!
C. Jones, Oregon

After seeing the STARSCAPES ® Demo Board, the State Fair Officials told us that we were going to get the best spot in the fair!  I replied, "But how can you do that, when you're all booked up"?  "We'll boot somebody out!  Your STARSCAPES ® will be the hottest thing here"!

Got my pictures developed and will send you one to show the magnetic signs on my Jeep.  Now, I'm going to get off the ground!  I have now 5 bedrooms to do, with the possibility to do one of the Washington Redskins football players' house!!!!!  That is exciting!!!  I can not wait!!

I Invited a neighbor over for a beer and "just happened to mention" STARSCAPES ®.  He wanted to know what I was talking about.  I pulled out the Demo, and said "It's this."  He looked at it and responded, "I don't see anything."  (My grin started creaping around my head.)  I said, "Go over there and turn that light off."  He did and, as he turned, I was holding it above my head (not very professional, I know, but, hey, moment's notice).  He just stood there... looking up... in AWE!  He asked how much it costs to have a room done.  I told him that normally, it was $3.25/sqft, but, for him, I'd do it for $2/sqft IF he'd have a party this weekend.  HE AGREED!!!  Party is scheduled for this Saturday night.  I'll be doing his condo bedroom, starting around 5pm!

I must say my whole family (especially my wife) just loves the STARSCAPES® mural.  We usually end our waking moments listening to nature sound music and stare at our night sky until we fade away.
A. Swanner, Louisiana

I got my package and did my first job and was great.  I advertised some and got very good response so I will be ordering some more stuff soon.  I´m looking forward to get information on the new products you mention in the gold coin specially about the space battle thing, sounds great for kids.
J. Jimenez, Torreon, Mexico

Joe Petrashek is an honest and reliable business man. His STARSCAPES® concept is a great opportunity for anyone willing to make money and a great gift to humanity.  I´m very proud to be one of his associates. I earned $500 in my first week in business.
J. Jimenez, Torreon, Mexico.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I knew right from the start that your company was unique & in a class of its own.  I appreciate the "bonus" Super 10 paint & will take you up on your request to make a couple thousand on you!  I am truly looking forward to a long & prosporous relationship with you & your company.  Thank you again Joe.
T. Golbuff, Florida

Well, Joe, I must say that I am truly blown away! You are one class act!   This is the one I've been waiting for!  Tthe fact that you added my name to the roster (webpage) proves to me that you are the business opportunity I have been waiting for!  I'll be real interested in approaching some of the huge hotels here.  Anyway, sorry to be so long winded, but I have been totally disappointed by my several forays into "Multi level marketing" (vitamins, detergents, soap, enemas, etc.)  You can have them!  Starscapes is a business I can see doing for the rest of my life simply because I am a SUCKER for glow in the dark stuff!  I wish all of the Lord's blessings for you and Beverly!
K. and D. Marmon, Texas

I did my first demo to my wife and family.  It's great, no words to describe the phenomenon.
P. Bertin, Gabon, Africa

Joe, I just wanted to compliment you on your great presentation. You have one of the best sales letters I have ever seen . You captured my attention and created curiosity , "I just had to order your Starscapes program"!  I received The Starscapes program yesterday.  Let me tell you , I am even more impressed with the program.  The Demo poster is absolutely amazing , I couldn't believe my eyes. This is absolutely the best home business I have ever come across.  I would say "wish me luck", but I don't think I'll need it with Starscapes!  Great customer service and support!  Thank you & Aloha,
R. Ho Jr. , Hawaii

I have four ceilings to paint - just from the little poster!  We are really excited.
D. & J. Adams-Smith, Alaska

I'm so excited!!! I received another order today!  WOW! What a feeling!!  Joe, Again I say thanks for this awesome opportunity. I finally stop procrastinating and realized I can reach for the stars.  Happy to be on board!
A. Lepage, New Hampshire

I really do love doing this!
C. Mroz, Michigan

I can't sleep at night. I'm so excited! I did my own room in 20 minutes.  After I got done, I couldn't believe I did it! I just kept saying "This is impossible! This is just impossible". I'm just amazed and totally stunned with it! It looks so real! The minor stars even twinkle! I'm considering I'm already a wealthy man!
A. H. Texas

Just finished my first 3 Starscapes®.  People are so amazed that I have to hold back from laughing at their response! I'm in as much awe as they are!  An amazing home based business!
A. W. Canada

I've done 95 Starscapes® up to now, at an average price of $250 each.
K. C. Indiana

I did a "freebie" for my friend,for the practice and advertising value.  My friend is a pretty laid-back kinda guy and just said "Yeah, looks cool."  I thought maybe he didn't like it much and was just being polite.  I saw him at work today, and he said the closest thing he had ever seen to it was the planetarium in Seattle!  Better than that, his little girl, (whose room it was), had been sick and sleeping with him and his wife.  They had been trying to get her back in her room, now they can't keep her out of it!  She had some of those big glow-in-the-dark stars, which now just lay on her dresser.
B. McIntyre, Washington

The poster blew us away!  It actually looked like a hole in the ceiling!
D. S. in Texas

I'm truly impressed!  It's like a dream come true!
C. Mroz, Michigan

Just finished my first job.  On top of the $380 I charged for the 11'x13' room, they gave me a $50 tip!  (Dana did 2 more jobs that week. Total = $860.00!)  If it weren't for Starscapes®, I wouldn't have been able to pay my rent.
D. C. Pennsylvania

I can't tell you how very excited I am about my Starscapes®.  After my husband died, I haven't been able to return back to our room.  I knew I'd need something very compelling, very special & exceptionally unique for a "changed return".  When I saw your Starscapes®, I knew that I had found the answer.  I've waited several months and finally am able to have you come and create one for me.  You and Starscapes® have made an especiallly difficult transition for me into one that will be peaceful, inspiring and each night will be one to look forward to, instead of the opposite.  I thank you deeply and hope you know you're appreciated.  Thanks many times.  S. Green in Arizona

I had a great success at our local fair, please send me 15 more ounces of Creation Paint!
J. H. Alberta, Canada

I could not wait to get my package and see if all about starscapes is true.  Well all  I can say is I am impressed!!!  I have completed my (Amazing STARSCAPES®) poster, and I have looked at it over and over again in sheer awe!! My sheer congrats on the real super product... I cannot remember when last I was this excited about anything.  An entire ceiling must be incredible!
R. Bhana, Africa

Wow, do you have something ULTRA here! Please send complete kit. I have jobs already! Please send overnight!
K. H. Florida

I already got a job offer at a resort condo!
B. McIntyre, Oregon

I've done 200 jobs in the last few months, and I never wavered off my price of $325.  Sometimes I charged more!
T. D. New Jersey

Impressive kit! Now it's time to make money!
R. B. Idaho

Wow! I am excited. I spent over n hour staring at the poster (in the back of the manual)! It's truly amazing!
R. O. New York

I wish I had known about this some years ago!
B.C. Massachusetts

Fascinating business! Extremely lucrative and a great deal of fun.
L.C. Utah

Can't wait to get started!
T.Z. Kansas

I've received your manual and read it several times. It is fantastic! I feel confident about the illusion and my Milky Way looks REAL good, very authentic. And the depth perception really is there! I hope to be doing this full time real soon. So far, I've painted four ceilings. They all can't believe it's invisible (in the daylight). They all love it, and they're excited about it! Joe is honest, fair, and knowledgeable. The business is definitely worth more than the start-up price. My fourth job took me an hour and a half and paid me $ 75! The money is good and I'm having fun!
R.C. Utah

I've ordered through the mail for years, yours in the most UNIQUE!
H.W. California

I recently had the oportunity to see a Starscapes painting; and to say the least, I was very impressed.  The artist was kind enough to give me your name and address.  Would you please send me some information on becoming a Starscapes Artist. Thank you.
D. L. Texas

I shut myself in my closet to see the poster. When I got my face clear of the clothes -- I said, "OH, WOW"!
B. R. New York

I want you to know that I've done 16 Starscapes® at $129 each; and am very excited to begin doing a greater volume of business.
I. S. Vermont

You are truly a man of your word.

Excellent book and accessories Thank you.

Truly unique, very ingenious. Thank you for the opportunity.

Extremely happy with your manual!  It really looks like THIS is what I've always been looking for!
B. D. Nevada

New Starscapes® Illusionist Doug Copeland just booked two $85 jobs the very first time he showed his "demo" (explained in the latest newsletter which you'll receive)!

The manual is everything you said it was - and more. I can't wait to get started! I've sent for HUNDREDS of opportunities over the years, some have been good, but yours is without doubt the GREATEST!
C. L. Wisconsin

I thank you very much for your book. You've got a winner here! Your book is excellent and anybody who decides to use your plan will make good money
I.Z. Ontario, Canada

Your training materials are of the highest quality, very explanatory, and even fun to read. I have no doubt that almost anyone could bring in a very good income if they seriously applied themselves to this business.
W.J. Oklahoma

I'm really impressed! Looks like a winner!
R.B. Utah

It was such a surprise to actually talk to someone who sells business opportunities. Over the last couple of years I've tried several times to ask questions about certain ads and all I received was an answering machine which never called back. It was also very exciting to hear about an original idea, not another mailorder or network marketing scheme. Thanks for sharing your opportunity with me. I really need it to pay medical bills.
Ron G. Oklahoma

Many thanks for the refund. I did not expect it at all. I do hope you returned it for good business attitude and not due to my (physical) difficulties and problems. This to me shows that you and of course your wife and honest business folks. May God grant you success in your business now and for as long as you run it. Amen.
S. K. Texas

Your ad was exactly as you described.  This is the most money per hour I have ever made.  It is rare to find a program like this that actually does what it says...yours does!  Thank you very much Joe.
Y. Iguchi, Louisiana

I just did my first Starscapes® and made $100 in just one hour.  It's an incredible opportunity.
Chris S. Florida

I have purchased the Starscapes® program and products from Joe Petrashek & Voyager Industries.  This is an easy to follow plan that I have personally made $150 per hour with many times.  Joe's products are above and beyond what he even represents.  I am more than satisfied.
Tom R.  Florida

It was a pleasure speaking with you on the phone! This is the most exciting opportunity I've ever seen. I've got customers already waiting!
Ken B. Texas

I've sent for a lot through the mail... THIS is the BEST!
J.D. Utah

I did my first two Starscapes® jobs and people are amazed!
Luis M. Florida

I used to repair windshields.  This is the first thing my wife's ever got excited about!
Glen B. Iowa

All through the years I have known and studied star patterns, and like you, love the night sky.  While I was experimenting in my room, I found my designs were a likeness to the original and gleamed with perfection!  I am quite excited and looking forward to working this for many years and am considering traveling with it, and I want to associate with your company throughout this time!
Scott S. Utah

My friend recently purchased the StarBiz In A Box from you.  Unbeknown to me, he had painted the poster and put it up on the ceiling.  Boy, was I surprised and impressed when I saw it!  He wouldn't tell me where he got it from for the longest time.  I practically forced it out of him!  I would therefore like to order the package as advertised.  I'm so excited I can't wait!
D.J.  Florida

I am very glad I crossed your path.  I love Starscapes®!  1st room: poor work but kids still love it.  2nd room: practice...excellent.  3rd room:  Actual job...looks excellent!  Thanks again Joe! Frank W. Maryland

A pleasure to see a true opportunity that anyone can do and really make money doing it. Thanks for the opportunity.
T.M. Kentucky

Send me the Star Kit! Customers are waiting!
Roy C. New York

Can't wait to get started! I've already sold two ceilings and haven't even received my kit yet!
Kim B. Arkansas

I read your manual once and it's thorough. One can tell it has been written by someone who's been there. I can't wait to paint my room! I think you are wonderful for sharing your ideas and giving people an honest, fun, lucrative way to make money
Marie C. Virginia

I booked 30 jobs before even seeing your materials. Now, I've landed a deal with a famous hotel/casino here!
Gary C. Nevada

I had built a 10' x 10' portable room at the Home Show out of 2 x 4's and black vinyl. I amazed over 600 people that waited in line to see my Starscapes!
Tom M. Kansas

I can't say enough about how exciting this business is. It's great! Joe's information and start-up kit is brilliant! I've gotten 11 jobs in my first 2 weeks! My goal is to have a store in a busy mall! Mitch L. Ontario, Canada 

I have been able to read and study the manual, paint the sample chart, and think about the possibilities. You did not exaggerate the results. They are amazing! I am going to do a couple of my own ceilings and maybe for a friend. By that time I should be an experienced professional! Richard D. Pennsylvania 

The most fun I've ever had!   Shelly M. Kansas

I really love having stars up on my ceiling. I like it so much. I feel like a little kid with a new toy!   Charlie M. California 

This is indeed a great system without a doubt! George R. Maryland 

I'm pleased with my decision to become associated with STARSCAPES INTERNATIONAL.  I had seen the "illusion" at the state fair about 3 years ago.  All this time I had been thinking about it, wondering... How do they do that?  I have been in business for myself and worked for others for over 20 years, and I can tell you that your company offers the best money making opportunity on the planet!!  When I mailed off my request to you , I figured it would take about 3 or 4 weeks to receive my package.  boy was I surprised when I received it in less than a week.  All materials and everything covered in the plan are really first class.  I can see that no expense was spared in preparing these materials.  Your company is the first I have come across in many years that operates with the "customer" in mind.  I don't feel (that) I'm on my own, and I know you're only a phone call away.  It's nice to do business with someone who cares!!  And thanks for the newsletters.  It's great reading what others have accomplished and how they are doing it.   Bill Pearson, Washington
