About Brez
Joined October 2013
Hello to all my WA brothers and sisters! Brez here, I tried to get started in ecommerce last year and failed miserably however I believe the fault was mine. I had just started emailing with my first computer and really didn't have a clue, not that I am any more technologically proficient now, it just took awhile to get use to cyber space. I got scammed many times and lost more money than I care to mention. I also blame this on my naïve and gullible nature and to be quite honest I didn't put in the time or labor it required to be successful. I was truly overwhelmed at how much there is to learn and know. I believe now with the help of WA and the wonderful community established here I may finally succeed.
I am a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. where I still reside and I enjoy all types of writing, movies and music. These are some of the topics I would like my sites to be based on, I know good luck, but I think I have found a untapped niche. Needless to say I will need tons of help trying to understand how everything works and is tied in, from social media to copy write to the technological side of video and images to HTML. So I am warning you I will be asking for lots of help!

Hi Mark! Just wanted to drop by and say hi. Its been a while since our paths crossed in the WA world. You left such a profound and lovely comment on one of my WA posts that I never responded to and it deserved a response! I'd like to apologize and just say...

I'm glad our paths have crossed.

I hope you are well. It is such a juggling act bringing our internet marketing business into existence. I am still learning and working on developing the traffic. I respect your focus on family and just wanted to drop in and say HI.

Thank you nice hearing from you. I've been having some difficulties finding work as of late, I've been laid off and scrambling to keep up with things, unfortunately WA has taking a backseat and I have been thinking about writing a blog to inform everyone but can't seem to find the time even for that. In any event it is good to know people still care and it is good to see you are succeeding in your endeavors. Wishing you all the best for you and yours.

Well, I wouldn't say I'm succeeding just yet. I know that sometimes WA has to take a back seat, went through that with two almost back to back events involving family members and health issues.

I just keep plugging away. I am able to do that right now, and am blessed that I can make this time committment to what has so far been created.

I hope you find that important cash resource. Being laid off is just not right when we have a family and loved ones that rely on us. Just hoping you are taking time to be embraced by the music you love so that your heart can be lifted while you muddle through all of it.

Sending hope and lots of smiles!

Thanks for following. I'm still new here, (on step six as we speak) so don't have a lot if advice yet. What I have learned is don't get confused if something doesn't look Right. Just go step by step through the bootcamp and often times cowbell the road the next step will help you figure it out. Also take lots of notes on the videos. I ask for lots if help. Still learning the many ways to communicate in here. The community is great. Best of luck.

You got it down. I haven't been very active in the community as of late, working long hours everyday, with no time for the community to say the least my sites. I had dental work done today and was going to blog about my situation but pain medicine is making me drowsy and it's back to work tomorrow. Hope all goes well with you, it's sounds like you've had an interesting life, I love symphonic music and it never dawned on me that you could start your own orchestra, the Beethoven symphonies are my favorites. This is the perfect arena to promote your music, when I'm back on my feet I plan to do the same.

Very cool. I will probably do a website on music and music education next. Funny, I also just had dental work done and am in pain medication. Sucks, doesn't it?

Still struggling, my man, time is my biggest commodity right now, trying to balance paying the bills which takes most of my time and building an online business which I don't have enough time for and time to enjoy friends and family there just aren't enough hours in the day something always suffers and unfortunately it's always my site and learning. I'm not complaining it's just the way it is right now things will change for the better I have faith and I'm staying hardy.

Hi Brez, You will do fine, I remember reading a true story in the days of WWll, it was a Jewish family fleeing from the Nazi's they had to cross the mountain range to get to Switzerland, the little girl looked at the mountain and said to her father, daddy I can't climb that mountain, the father said, I'm not asking you to climb the mountain, just to put one foot in front of the other. You see it's how you view things, either negative or positive, the father had a positive view. Amen. Thanks for the follow.

Another question, figured out how to blog here at WA but when I went to publish it, they said to add tags and name of tags. I don't know what they mean, I saved the draft, so I could try to find out about the tags which I still have no answer for and now I can't retrieve the draft. Can someone please explain the tag thing to me and tell me how I might get my saved blog back. I had worded pretty much the way I wanted it.
Can anyone help me?

Mark, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Mark.

Hi Brez! Virginia Beach, you poor thing. :-) Seriously, some projects in my life had hard jerky starts, however most finished very well. When I was a runner I learned early on, run my own race-don't worry about how others are running their race. The object is to be where you need to be at the end of the race.

Thank you for the follow , the reassurance and the quote. I discovered WA at a time when I was giving up on ecommerce and never took advantage of the free training, this was all about a year ago. Now I'm back as a premium member and plan to use all the tools they have to offer to make my dreams come true. Thanks again for the support and best of luck to you, if I can be of service please don't hesitate to write.

Steve are you for real, is this site for real? You, your webpage ivetriedthat and the Wealthy Affiliate Community seem to good to be true. My profile should be a pretty good indication of where I am right now and how refreshing it is to find some fellow ecommerce marketers so willing to help each other. In the very short time I've have been in the business it all seems so cut throat and I have been so discouraged lately I've just wanted to give up and chalk my loses up to experience, lesson learned. You have given renewed hope that possibly this could work out. I love what your doing and hope one day I can find a niche that is profitable yet helps or educates others also. Keep up the good work you are a breath of fresh air to an other wise polluted sea of con men and scammers. Don't you ever stop!
