Hi, Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. :-) Update Jan 28, 2020

I'm Mel Waller

Melissa Jeane was born 26 Jan 2020. My secret motivation. :-)

Publisher with 1005 titles in print, mostly reprints of Public domain works, selling mostly on Amazon. Around 300 ebooks.
Author 4 books

In Feb 2019, I just started taking blogging seriously and building this as my next source of passive income.

I've had many successful businesses in my life. I always preferred working for myself than collecting a paycheck from someone else.

I served in the U. S. Marines July 1980 to March 1988. No combat thankfully.

I love traveling! I lived in Oahu, Hawaii for 4 years total - Aloha!
I lived in Northern Japan - Misawa, Japan for 6 months - Hai! Domo!
I lived in Southern Spain - Rota, Spain for 3 1/2 years - Muchas Gracias!
I lived in the Philippines over 4 years. - Mabuhay!
Did I mention I loved traveling? haha

Hobbies: I used to collect coins, stamps, antiques, books, rocks, insects... haha just about everything. Very curious about things. I used to hunt and fish. I love the outdoors.

One year, I had a metal detector and enjoyed hunting for lots of goodies in the ground. Very relaxing and exciting wondering about what was about to be revealed. Most interesting find: 1884 star shaped Dubuque Dog Tag. Sold for $75 on ebay.

I LOVE HELPING PEOPLE! That's a huge part of who I am.

I collect MEMORIES/experiences and NOT things. That fuels my Passion for Life.

In 2012, I got divorced after 24 years of marriage. I gave up everything I had except my small part time publishing business. I essentially started my life over with just about nothing. I worked 24/7 for the next 2 years saving and building up my publishing business. In 2014, I started living the laptop life and traveled to SE Asia and have been living on my passive income from publishing books, mostly reprints and they sell on Amazon. Sometimes in survival mode as income not even enough to buy the food I needed. Lost 90 lbs. I have gained some of that back. :-)

In Feb 2019, I decided to work on making money from blogging because I love writing and I've been learning a lot in the process and found my way here to WA in March 2019. One of the great blessings in my life because of the endless opportunities this provides my family and I.

I'm just about the friendliest person you are ever going to meet. When I go out my door, I am walking and talking to everyone I meet. Every day is a gift!

Now, my life has not been without major challenges. Bullied for 9 years in school. Low self-esteem. Depression. Came close to suicide in 1978, any closer and I wouldn't be here. Not exactly homeless, but I lived in my car for 4 months during the Recession of 1980.

I've witnessed the dark side of life. That's where my compassion comes from. I choose to be the light. I want to write about that some day. The story needs to be told.

To Your Success!

Great to see that you've added some goals Mel!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Hi Mel,
I noticed that you’re following me. Thanks so much for that. I hope and pray for your success here at WA. I’m wondering if we could do each other a favor? Could we possibly exchange a comment on a recent post, on each other’s website? I know time is precious, so I certainly understand if the timing is not the best for you. Anyway, if you’re able, here’s the post I need a comment on: https://howtoloveelementary.com/why-do-i-feel-like-a-child/
Please send me a link to your most recent post and I’ll add a comment for you. A warm thanks to you in advance.

Please respond with a step by stem system that might help me achieve this worth while endeavor .

Hi Farah,

As for my wife, we are trying to maintain some sense of privacy.

The best way is for you to create a step by step system. Start by building your website/business so you will have that proof that WA works and that will give you more credibility.

See things from their perspective and determine what you can do to help them in addition to what they will have on WA.

Maybe you can get a group in your community where you can mentor them and assist each other.

I am planning a similar effort here in the Philippines. One of my referrals will have a website promoting WA in Filipino and English to better reach their countrymen.

Be creative.

To Your Success!

Mel

Thank you so much Mel for following me. Before I am praying to God to past through all the debt I have. I ask Him a favor to send a person who guide me into successful path. One day in I search about successful someone and what they did until they become successful. WA...most of them are not wealthy at first but they super successful. I believe you one them. Thanks God I meet kyle and you. God Blessed to all of us. ALILY
