Press Release Summary: Disaboom, the Premiere Online Community for People Touched by
Employs Community Members in Newly Launched Sales Force

Press Release Body: Denver, CO - June 26, 2008 - In the face of tough economic
conditions, Disaboom (OTCBB: DSBO; www.disaboom.com), the largest online community
designed for people touched by disabilities, has taken a unique step by hiring its
own online community members. Disaboom's new program, the Marketplace Opportunity
Brokers (MOB), offers highly flexible, commission paying jobs that not only fit the
lifestyle of people touched by disabilities but also provide an attractive source of
full-time or supplemental income for anyone looking for flexible employment. MOB
team members have the opportunity to earn significant commissions by selling
business listings to local and national businesses and organizations that are
accessible and supportive of people touched by disabilities.

"People with disabilities already represent a population with a 67 percent
unemployment rate. This economic environment compounds the issue," said Dr. Glen
House, founder of Disaboom. "The Disaboom Marketplace Opportunity Broker program
offers this community a unique opportunity to be employed on their own terms. They
can work from their home, when they are able, and sell as much or as little as
they'd like."

To date, more than 350 Disaboom members have signed up to become Marketplace
Opportunity Brokers or MOB team members, and this freelance sales force continues to
grow daily. Disaboom MOB team members can earn commissions for selling listings in
Disaboom's Marketplace Business Listings. The team members are then awarded 33.33
percent of the total revenue gained from each sale plus a five percent bonus on
their gross sales when they sell six or more listings in a month. They will also
continue to earn an annuity on each business that relists every year.

\"The Disaboom MOB is such a unique program because members of a social network can
make money by helping to build out a resource that benefits the community itself -
the website\'s business listings,\" continued House.

Becoming a MOB team member is simple. To apply, members must first join Disaboom
and then complete a short application and a W9 form on the site. A personalized
sales page will be created that will provide MOB team members with all of the tools
they need including sales tips and training, marketing collateral, letterhead and
business card templates, and a weekly newsletter.

Members also become part of a nationwide team of brokers, and can connect with other
brokers through a MOB group and MOB forum on Disaboom.com, read and post blogs with
sales tips and MOB updates, ask questions of other MOB members and get in touch with
fellow brokers in their area.
