About DirectJ
Joined October 2018
I see a lot of WHY do you do this and that when it comes to Internet Marketing. People i.e. family, friends, potential customers or partners will tell you it's a scam and they are just robbing you. I have family in an MLM (ACN) and do very well, some of the family that "do not believe" in internet marketing joke around saying that part of the family is in a "CULT" LOL. I would like to make my own way and I asked my cousins about different programs and they mentioned quite a few and it's you that needs to put the work into it to make yourself successful (I agree). I am a 42 Hispanic male clean and sober from drugs and alcohol for 5-years. I currently work as a drug and alcohol counselor at my last rehab I went to (been to multiple)UPDATE no longer work there moved on to an opportunity I could not refuse and actually gives me more money and best of all free time to work on my sites. I have no savings and nothing to speak for besides a son that wants nothing to do with me and other family members who 1. will not speak to me 2. are speaking to me but just barely 3. my mom, dad, brothers, and sister that love me unconditionally. I found out in Jan. of 2017 my mother has stage 4 lung cancer she has had plans to do this and that and the one that has always stuck with me are the Northern Lights she wants to see them in person, my mom has never been out of the US besides Mexico (where she's from). My mom and dad worked hard to bring up their children the right way my sister went to college and is very successful in what she does, my little brother does computer stuff from his home and gets paid well (I asked for help from him in starting this and he said it's possible and does not know what to do he referred me to my ACN family), my older brother works for one of the big satellite tv companies and is well off. Back to the Northern Lights, my WHY is I want my mom to see them I would like to be the man she raised and start giving back to my family instead of taking away. I liked to give back to the community besides the work I currently do. I would also like to spend more time with my parents they slept well knowing I was in jail or in rehab someplace, now I'm up with them I'm worried (about my mom) like any good son is and I want to be there for them like they've been for me so many times in the past. Teach me to be there for my parents and family is WHY I'm doing this help guide me through what I need to know and learn, once I learn I can do the same for others as you've shown me. Well if you read all this let's get started on it and thanks for the future help, appreciate it all.

Nice goals Jason,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

I look forward to working with you :)

JDTheOne Premium
This is a great goal to have, very attainable.
LRich1 Premium
Good goals you have there.
IntroVent Premium
Those are some well thought out goals! Enough to quit your job and do this full time, living comfortably.

I wish you the very best in reaching them!

I do suggest that you commit to an amount of time per day and put that amount of time on your schedule to work other things around.

After reading the full bio I can definitely see why you're "WHY" would be so strong.

I could definitely relate to you on certain personal areas of life, and must say for you to post all of that personal info.

I hope your story inspires others to get "off the path".

Best wishes with both your entrepreneurial journey and the journey of life.

Hey Jason,
Very pleased to meet you, huge congratulations on kicking your addictions. I know, being a mother of 4 myself, that one thing is one of the most amazing miracles in your mothers life, and you gave that to her. To my mind, that makes you even more successful than your sibs. Yes, their achievements are definitely noteworthy, but yours is out of the stratosphere!!
Thank you for the follow, I am following you now as well and so look forward to hearing of your further successes in achieving your goals, and your mom's reactions, pics would be great. :)
directJ Premium
Thank you, Sherri I appreciate the kind words. I will take pics and wished I would have read this before showing her my 2nd site and took some pictures her reactions then. Especially when she asked, "did you write this?" lol she's a great writer herself and told her I got it from her.

fontash Premium
That's awesome Jason, I can just imagine how proud she must have looked. Keep up the great work. Wishing you all the happiness and prosperity that you handle in 2019.

Jerry ,it is a pleasure to hear from you, I have a similar back ground with drugs and alcohol, however when i was at my last of of the world I crawled into an assembly of God church and surrendered to Christ, I was instantly delivered from drugs alcohol and profanity, I have been sober for nine years now, with no desire for any of that. Ok with that being said stick with the program to the tee, I mean literally, It will seem very difficult in the beggining remember the platform of marketeers are hear to help, pick a niche that fits you, sincerely, Jack
directJ Premium
That's great to hear Jack, I work with a couple of men that found their cravings to drugs and alcohol removed from Christ they teach me a lot and very grateful to have them in my life. Great to have you in it now as well.

Hi Jason. Thanks for adding me to your network. Blessings on your success here at WA.
I struggled with Alcohol for years. Finally was able to overcome the terrible habit.
I've written a self-help book on getting clean and sober. If you would like to take a look, you could find some help for the ones you are helping now. It is online, however.

Hi Jason and thank you for the follow - also following you in return.

An interesting profile bio and unfortunately, can relate to also.

Since I have started to write as well as joining WA, I get told countless times . . . get a ******* job, you're worthless, hoping that my internet marketing venture fails and that I am dumb so you are doing pretty well (from my point of view, anyway).

I haven't given up and unfortunately, or fortunately, am still happy where I am and what I have succeeded in so far so my only encouragement for you is to try holding you head up high and continue on your journey if this is where you are wanting to be.

By the way, wishing you every success here on WA and well as your online internet venture and thank you for joining my network.

Hi Jason, quite an interesting profile. I deeply respect you trying to get your life together and give back to your parents. I think WA is a great place to do this and although it is a lot of hard work, it can be great fun too. (I sometimes fall behind because I don't have a lot of free time.) I wish you the best of luck and I will pray for your Mom. I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights myself! Thanx for the follow and I'm following you too.

Howdy!!! Welcome to WA Premium. You won't regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!
