About KarlOtake
Joined June 2016
I am MK, Karl "MK" Otake.

I am originally from Hawaii and grew up all over the western United States.

I've died three times...you didn't read that wrong, THREE times. I've lived a no limit life...Hint: Life has limits, it's called mortality;)

The first time I was revived I thought It was a blessing, the Second time I figured I was cursed...The Third time I decided I had a purpose, maybe even a mission only I could fulfill.

Do I actually have a purpose; Who knows? What I do know is this, all of my experiences in life have pushed me forward and pushed me upward, even the experiences I perceived as "unfortunate" at the time.

Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. My mission now?

-Be better tomorrow than I am today.
-Create something that matters, an Empire of Empires.
(Empire of Empires = Build up everyone around me:)
-Help anyone who seeks Self-Actualization Level up.
-Share my journey with anyone who can benefit from it.
-Be real but not complacent.

I believe everyone finds happiness in self-actualizing and in assisting others self-actualize. That's how I find happiness, and that's how I measure myself. I understand that for me to be the best potential me, I must help others become the best of themselves and to help them become the best of themselves I must cultivate the best possible me.

If you are into Personality profiles, I'm an ENTP, LP#8, Enneagram 3, Pisces. Good luck sorting through that mess:)

I've had a successful Career in Customer Service/Sales/Management but I walked away from it all to work in the Defense Industry. I am now developing multiple streams of income online, and Wealthy Affiliate is proving to be extremely valuable.

I found Wealthy Affiliate a while before I joined. I thought I could easily find all the info on starting a website/blog/business on my own. Maybe I could but...I got lost chasing shiny objects and spent over $10,000 in six months on, courses, tools, and software that Wealthy Affiliate INCLUDES in the membership (face palm). Live and learn Ladies and Gentlemen:)


I hope to share this journey with all of you.


All the Best,

MK

KarlOtake's Goals 3
Money Goals
#1 $1000 per day.

#2 $100,000.00 per day.

#3 You can't save time, borrow time or make time. you can only spend it, Invest perhaps is more like it. I currently spend 75 Hours per week gainfully employed if i include travel time. I love what I do but its a young mans game.

Time is of the essence to take the overall investment of time that equates to life experiences and monetize it by sharing it. In short the answer to the most important question on this list is...as much TIME as it bloody well takes;)

I wish all here who take action to actualize the goals they document and allow for themselves.

All the best,

MK

Those are wonderful goals Mk and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

I like your goals as well, I might have to put a little more effortthan in as well

Thnks for the follow, MK!
You story impressed me. Actually, I've been through such a health condition as well. I have been in a coma 7 times between my 9-30 years, because of a diabetes I've got when I was 5 years old. I am 55 years old and I recovered from all the health issues that occured during my youth. I can say I am a newborn. That is why I decided to help other people improve their health with natural and complementary remedies.

Have a wonderful day!

Karl, you and I have very similar stories as I also have died three times we should compare notes, my three experiences were all within about an hour of one another though, I was involved in a very serious car crash as a teenager, and died once in the ambulance on my way to the hospital, once in the ER and once on the operating table.

Ironically it also had a profound effect on my life, I am now a minister, author, speaker, and own a couple of driving schools here in Massachusetts.

Irony it is would like to get to know more about your personal experiences. Oh and by the way, my name is Carl also only with a "C"

Thanks for the follow.

Hey KarlOtake thanks for the Follow, I must say you seem to be a very interesting person, one I would like to get to know. Hopefully we can help each other in this community. However I'm just beginning this journey with W.A. So for now I will be reaching out to more experience people like yourself. Keep looking up brother.

Hi Karl, it is an honor to follow you. I would love to get together sometime soon. and chat about our goals and what we can do to reach them. long ago i was on the path to enlightenment. I meditated for over 20 years. Most days i connected to some people who needed help and worked with them one on one while connected to help them with their medical problems, i'm sure you know what i mean. Now i have to get my finances in order, and get the $$ rolling in. Any ideas on that would be greately appreciated. Have fun and be successful.. Regards Frank Perrella

Hi, Frank!

Its nice to meet you. Congrats on getting into Commercial RE. Its nice to have tenants tend to the day to day.

Twenty years of meditating is, wow. I appreciate you stopping in to offer words of encouragement and guidance. I don't believe I am on the path so much as on the Path to The path but I understand what you mean about help and guidance to others:)

Likewise, if I can be of assistance somehow please feel free to PM me.

All the best,

MK

Thanks Karl

Wishing you all the best for success AND I am very pleased you picked OPTION NO.3

As a newbie I have a lot work and research to do but I am confident it will be all worthwhile in one giant world family

This is a whole new adventure for me AND meeting people from around the world in WA makes me feel like making bucket loads of money and travelling to those countries - good incentive

Have a great day

Hi, Brad!

Thank you as well. A beautiful thing about life is we are all new at something at some point along our journies. It seems to be worthwhile to remember that focused and determined progress sets apart the successful from the unhappy.

I wish you all the best!

MK

P.S. I miss frogs, creeks, surfing and camping as well. On many, occasions it seems as though I have inherited someone else's memories;)

Sorry Karl,

Don't know where I got Mark from? I saw MK and immediately thought of a mate of mine MK - Mark Kavanough.

By the way what's that drink? What's in it?

Hi MK, Thanks for following me. Well, it sounds like you have 9 lives, like the proverbial cat, and you've used up 3! Hopefully you have learned to manage your energy a little better. No point in willfully putting yourself in harms way to make a point or pull of a success. (Sorry, it's the mom in me. I couldn't help myself! LOL)

I appreciate that you are an ENTP. I get it. I'm an ISTP so not nearly as balls-to-the-wall as you are, but I'm strong and healthy at 73 and intend another good 25 years at least.

I followed you too. Let's stay in contact. You can inspire me and I can help you find some balance. Cheers! Joy

Hi, Joy! First off thank you for choosing to follow me as well:)

Yes! Another MBTI savant! As an ISTP, you are a Rarity. I don't recall having ever met an ISTP woman before. I believe that personality subgroup comprises only 2-3% of the entire world population.

I look forward to watching you create another phase of your life (you are a "Virtuoso" ISTP after all).

All the best,

MK

Yes, I am aware that my type is a rarity. That explains why so much of my life I have felt like a fish out of water in my melu. It has been very hard to join any organization or to find my "tribe". I was raised as an only child so that just encouraged my "I" ness.

I'm not anti-social, and, finally, at this late stage I have found several groups I'm comfortable with. Luckily I've participated in several intense trainings, particularly my Master Practitioner NLP training) that have predisposed me to continue to look forward instead of regretting past failures and getting stuck in the past. Daily I am so grateful for that. I believe that work is what enabled me to survive and eventually thrive after my daughter had her stroke and I lost everything after I brought her home to care for her. Too many losses, back to back to back will devastate anyone. (Husband left, Lost my home, lost my business all within a period of 6 months.) But I eventually turned the corner. My daughter, unfortunately, is severely and permanently disabled.

But, life goes on and I pulled myself through to the point that I really enjoy my life every day now. I hope you do too. Best Wishes always.

Thank you for sharing a little of your story, I love your sense of humor and positive attitude. That's just what I need to cheer me up. Just started with WA and I am very excited. I am a mother of three and would like to spend more time with them, instead of 10 hours in a boiler room. If you get my drift. I will keep you in mind if I need any questions. Love to hear accomplishments, gives me a lot of hope. Thanks.

Hi there. I want to thank you for following me. I am following back. More importantly, I want to say how much I love your profile. I have to agree that you must have some sort of purpose here, but then again, I think we all have a purpose; unfortunately most of us don't realise it.

I wish you tremendous success here at WA and in all other areas of your life.

Hi MK,

Thanks for your message on my profile. I'd say 'yes' because I can jump any area of work and start off within a short period. But at the same time, it can be distracting and sometimes one may lose focus. At the moment I am focusing on one thing at a time.

Please stay connected. Yours is an interesting profile! If you don't mind, which course you spent $10000 in six months? I am super careful because of the bad experiences in the past. No problem with shiny object - I have a check-list and if I am not making at least what I spent within a time period, I would get my money back. Period.

All the best,
Gautam

Hi Gautam,

Thank you for your kind words. To answer your question, I spent money on Udemy, Coursera and random JVzoo courses. I spent money on article spinners, auto content generators and PLR. Keyword tools, Hosting, tutorials for setting up websites etc.

All the things that matter can be found with a WA membership. I love this place. The dirty secret (that's not really a secret:) is for me this. WA has amazing training and tutorials, hosting keyword tools etc. But the COMMUNITY here is the real magic.

This is the ultimate mastermind group. If I can't find an answer to my question here, I know I need to ask a better question because we have thousands of people here who have done what we are trying to do (including you:)

I look forward to observing everyone's growth and success here.

All the best,

MK

Hi MK,

I am also buying products from Jvzoo these days, but as I said, if I am not getting at least the initial investment, I get my money back.

Cheers,

Hi Mk,

Obviously you have a purpose Mk, of course it's knowing what that purpose is - I still haven't figured out what my purpose is, but I do want to make a difference in the world.

Anyway, thanks for adding me to your network. I wish you all the very best :-)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Karl, I can identify. Learning online business can be tedious if you are like me (not too savvy), but as I watch the tutorials and work them til I get it, it will be worth it when it is all set up and producing. Then it is just repeating and expanding. Be patient with yourself tho, it is less stress. Life is to be sipped, not guzzled. Enjoy!

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Mk and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
