Hi, Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. :-) Update June 4, 2019

I'm Mel Waller

(On June 4th, we found out we're pregnant. Game changer. I'm working 24/7 going forward on my WA business. A child can be a great motivation!)

Publisher with 1000 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 photography and this coming xmas 2019 I hope to buy a DSLR camera and get involved with that again. (Could be a challenge with baby on the way, but still striving for this)

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 me and my family.

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 goals Mel,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hi Mel,

Thank you for your message. Sometimes it is not until we experience hardship and worse that we can appreciate and be thankful for what we have, albeit at that time not very much.

It's good to hear you have overcome the problems which were holding you back from doing what you like best, writing. I enjoy writing, although I am not very good at it. I think the attraction is seeing your thoughts in a physical form, which seems to put them in some order, I don't know.

I've only just started with WA and I have been amazed by the number of people who have sent me their good wishes and encouragement after only a few days!

Thanks again for your message and I wish you every success with everything you do.

Nice to meet you Mel! Thanks for following me. Your story is an example of someone who has learned to turn negative situations into positive ones. Sometimes life makes us face things that we would not have chosen otherwise, but we somehow become stronger and better because of it. I wish you much success and congrats on your new bundle of joy :-)

Thanks for sharing your story Mel. I can so relate to the last part as I too had lived a dark existence then I got sober 15 years ago and my life has been recovered from the human scrap heap.

In my second marriage with an angel of a woman who “gets” me. I’ve never before had someone in my life I felt comfortable enough with to where I could honestly share everything about myself.

Since we our union I can honestly say that I’ve been overpaid with countless blessings. As for my professional growth, I am ready for a new chapter and I am glad I found WA.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is great to be part of a community that help one another to succeed. We all have the same passion to help people and I am glad to be part of this. Having low self esteem has always been my stumbling block. Growing up, people around me never gave me that encouragement or commitment to develop this potential in myself. We cannot choose the family we are born with, but hopefully we can choose the friends that becomes a family, that help us to become what we meant to be, a success in life. My aim is to be successful in building my online business. I hope to see you on the other side. Kind regards Kam.

Thanks for sharing Kam!

You're right. We can't choose our biological family or even adopted family if that is what we were given. We can choose our friends, but even they can let us down and I have found real, true friends are rare.

But the one person we will share our life with every day that we live is ourselves. So where others fail, we must learn to love ourselves Unconditionally and without judgment.

If you can do that, your life will be transformed beyond imagination.

To Your Success!

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/

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!

What a story Mel! It is fascinating that the friendliest people are also the ones prone to depression and anxiety and everything that you could do without in your life. But when you're on the right track and know where you stand, you are literally a beacon of light and hope to the rest of the world, which is what I am striving for, as I too have been depressed and overwhelmed by life, and I too put being a good and friendly person at the forefront of everything I do.

How have the last couple of months been for you since joining? Has it changed your life? What are your experiences? Nice to meet you anyway! Take care!

What is your best tip for me? I have 3 days per week to build my business.

MelWaller Premium
Thanks Charlotte,

Some people don't like hearing to follow the training, but it's as simple as that, because the training is very specific and detailed as to what we should do to build our website and our business.

Then ask the community anytime you have a question. The support here is amazing.

Focus on what you need to do and take consistent action on those 3 days each week. If you can squeeze more time in later, do so.

Be patient, this takes time, but if you don't quit then you are on the path to success.

To Your Success!

Howdy Mel. Thanks for following me. Congrats on having a child on the way. Children will definitely change your life and your priorities. I have 3 myself, although they are all grown, ages 23, 20 & 18. Great to meet another writer. I mostly write Speculative fiction short stories (think Twilight Zone and X-Files).

I know where your coming from with low self-esteem and depression. I'll be praying for you because I know how hard dealing with and finding your way out of those issues can be.

Hi Mel,

nice to meet you! Your bio is amazing and if I look at your avatar I can feel the positive radiation coming out.
You are 'the light', being happy about every day in life, that everything is possible, that difficult times can be overcome.
Nevertheless, I like to add, that you basically have the 'elements' in your' personal profile' to be like you are (I learned from my wife's Life Coach business). Well, and the most important, I could read, is the fact that you love what you do - the most most important ingredient in one's personal life on this planet.
Nevertheless, I eventually would love to hear from you, how to build the Amazon reprints publishing business. I publish my wife's books as Kindle and Hardcopy version and thought - after reading your bio - that I could do better :)

In the meantime, all the best, stay healthy, stay wealthy, be happy,

Frederick

Have you been looking behind the curtain? haha I have had training as a Life Coach, but I have never pursued being paid to do that work. But it sure has helped me along the way. :-)

And congrats to your wife on her books!

Perhaps sometime, we could discuss over Skype reprints.

I'm more of hands on sometimes or just makes more since when some one else is explaining or doing instead of reading. And that's why I like it here because we have the seminars to watch. I would like to get these two sites , I've started to create, can start generating some revenue and then I'll do more sites. From one brother, with boots down...lol...,help me I'm lost now that I'm premium money's going out and none is coming in. So please help!

Earning $$ can be slow. That's normal as we have so much learning to do and Google can slow to process down.

Your fine. If Google seems to slow ya down, depending on the niche, would it be better to just market the Wealthy Affiliate program. And another problem I'm having is that where my money is so tight it took me along time in between the time I went through the starting boot camps, training and when I went premium that I've about forgot all the beginning and how I set the sites up and all. So I'm having to go back look back over things to remember on top of having to learn the next steps. And as I was saying before the money is going out and not enough going back in. So I've got to start generating revenue soon or I'm going to have bail out and I'd rather not do that but I cant keep making my family struggle while I'm trying to do what I thought would put us where we need to be and I've still got nothing to show for it. I've even thought about trying to pass my DOT physical and start driving again. But as crippled up as I am I dont even think that's going to work out either. So my hands are up and I'm about to give up. I need a one on one in order to make sure I understand exactly what I'm doing and even if I've done everything right up to this point. And even if it's what I thought I was signing up to do. I'm sorry to bother you about it but you seem to have a very good grasp on this and exactly how it works.

Hi, Mel!

For sure we have two things in common: I am also very curious by nature and very appreciative for each day after going through my fair share of troubles and dramas.

O, no. There is a third thing: I know how divorce can break you financially. So, welcome to a club! I am glad you are OK.

It is fantastic that you can live a "laptop" life. Good for you!

Thank you for following and I will be checking on you soon.

Thanks a lot for following me otherwise I may have never found your bio.
I just read your story and it's inspiring. You are living proof that life gets better. I'm coming out of a dark period myself and dream of living the nomad life and travel in a couple of months. You showed me that is all possible and still keep a smile and friendlyness. Thanks for sharing

Hi Mel,

I became interested in how people are making money online a few years ago, but I am just starting now! I hope to also have multiple streams of passive income, as this seems to be the way to find financial security and not go bald in the process. One of my future side projects I want to complete is a series of children's books. I, too, love helping people, the outdoors, my DSLR, travel and insects. We may have to compare bug collections some day.

Ah Jeez, it's a bug eat bug world.

Mine is relatively new, but I fear ants getting in there and having their way with it. Good thing I have lots of pictures!

Hi Mel. It's nice to meet you. Thanks you very much for following me. I've returned the favor. I think it's safe to say that you've experienced a few things during your life. Your profile is a great read. It expresses your excitement for life. The ups and downs and all arounds that life brings us simply builds the beautiful art of living that is us all. I wish you all the best in life.

Hi Mel,

Thanks for the like. Greatly appreciated. Have done the same and I hope we can have a mutually beneficial interaction here on WA.

Your bio really touched. Went through a similar experience in my life. Not bullied but a nasty combination of loneliness and homelessness but from early on I decided to fight (and not give up).

Wishing you all the best with achieving your goals and I certainly could benefit getting some writing tips here and there.

Regards,

Josh

Hi Mel, and thanks for the follow. As I read your posts I can see that you truly do want to help others and that you have the gift of encouragement. Keep it up! You will not only go far yourself but help others to do the same. That is a great combination.
Blessings,

Hi Mel! Just stopping by to thank you for the follow!

Also, you seem to have hobbies that I was interested in! I too started coin collecting, and I wanted to get better at photography.

I also was interested in possibly writing a book or two, but that's something I'd probably work on later. On another note though, if you have experience and passion with writing in general, you'll probably have an advantage with your site already!

Thank you for your service, and keep being the brighter side of life!
