Why am I Dreaming About Jay? (The guy that does the weekly WA webinars)

Last Update: February 09, 2019

Spoiler alert: While based on a true story, this post is about the power of video. I am NOT in love with Jay. If I had been, I wouldn't be anymore after his lame excuse of why his dogs did not make a guest appearance at the end of this Friday's webinar.


For the last three or four weeks or so, I have been asking myself this question. "Why am I dreaming about Jay?" For starters, WA is NOT a dating site. So, this is kind of a weird thing to have happen. Now, had I dreamed about Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon; I wouldn't have given it a second thought.

After all, I need to find a way to meet Jeff Bezos. He is kind of rich. I know of a 6,000 acre ranch in my area that might be perfect for him. Also, I recently saw a video of him. On New Year's eve he was filmed wearing a cowboy hat and riding a horse into a little western shop here in Colorado. (I live in Colorado.)

I tend to admire men that can ride horses. It was very obvious that Jeff Bezos was comfortable riding a horse. I was also impressed how a cowboy hat could turn an "average looking" guy that I never looked at twice, into someone that one that catches my attention.

In all honestly, I never gave Jeff Bezos a second thought until I saw that Instagram video of him riding the horse. BUT, I didn't dream about Jeff Bezos. I dreamed about Jay.

In case you all haven't noticed, Jay does not wear cowboy hats. I suspect that Jay likes horses just as much as my two sons like horses. My kids don't particularly like horses. They are not remotely close to being cowboys. If anything, my sons are a lot like Jay. Smart, successful and kind of geeky. Taking into account that my ex-husband was a Canadian; it is even more weird that I am dreaming about Jay.

Yet, in my dream, Jay is laying on my bed. Fully clothed.... I am chattering away non-stop about affiliate marketing and e-commerce in general. Granted the story of my dream might be more interesting if I was talking to Jay about Jeff Bezos.

But I wasn't. All I can remember, aside from the fact that he was fully clothed and on my bed, is that I could tell that Jay was growing frustrated because I just kept talking about work.
It was around that point in time that I woke up.

I was a bit sad that I was about to lose a "boyfriend" in my dreams because I was so consumed with my work. Only the next day did I begin wondering, "Why was I dreaming about Jay."

For better or worse, I can confidently say that I am not dreaming about Jay because I lack male attention. This morning, I think I finally figured out why the reason why dreamed about Jay.


Why did I dream about Jay?

Jay does more webinars/videos than any other person I know. In doing so, we are given the chance to get to know Jay. We feel like he is talking to us. Each time we watch a webinar or a recording, we learn a little bit more about Jay. He has consistently been doing the webinars for a long time, so it might be normal to feel like we are developing a relationship with that person. Since Jay uses the chat feature in his webinars, people can interact with him. So, it is not completely one side.

When I first joined WA in November 2016 - I did not know who Jeff Bezos or Jay was. I did not know that hanging out with all the entrepreneurial minded WA members would result in my being inspired to open a brick and mortar real estate office, a retail shop and my owning multiple affiliate marketing websites.

To continue scaling, at some point soon, I need to hire someone to help me.

As a long time real estate broker with contact information plastered all over the internet, the bulk of the phone calls and emails I get every day are people trying to sell me something.I am WAY past being numb to unsolicited marketing messages. Yet, Jay's company will be the first company that I call when I am ready to outsource some of my activities.

I periodically watch webinars put on by a home staging lady, a few real estate people and a couple of motivational speakers. In each webinar, the always include an advertisement for something they are selling that will be discounted for a limited time. I tolerate the ads and limited special time offers but I do not like them. Yet, since I feel like I am tolerating these ads, I most likely won't ever purchase.



The amazing thing about this, is that Jay has earned my trust while I have been watching FREE, educational webinars over a period of time.


While I am aware of his business, he does not advertise his business or promote products or services like most other people that put on webinars do. So, I never find myself mentally shutting down in one of his presentation.

Yet, when it comes time for me to hire a company for my website work; Jay's company will be the one that I turn to.

If you think about, video is powerful.

By any chance, have you noticed yourself reacting the same way to people's videos and/or webinars?

ps I hope that each of you have a nice and productive weekend as you work towards making your dreams come true.

Hi Donna,

I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend also.

I'm sad that it is almost over already. Granted, being self employed there is not a huge significant difference in my world of any one day over another currently.... it is just that time is flying.

Best wishes and I'll be seeing you around.

Hi Sondra, these are very interesting dreams. Jay provides the knowledge and Jeff Bezos is one of the richest people. I think there could be a link to you growing your knowledge at WA and ending up very rich. By the way do you ever dream of Kyle or Carson

No, I can honestly say that I have not.

I really think the reason I dreamed of Jay was because of all the webinars. That is why I want to start using them in my marketing.

I faintly knew who Jeff Bezos was. Yet, it wasn't until after I saw the Instagram video clip on the horse riding into a friend's shop in Aspen that I researched him more. He spent time on a ranch in Texas. I started reading more about his business philosophies. Lately, I've been VERY unimpressed with his personal life issues. To the point, the I questioned including him in this story.... But - I still think their is value in learning more about Amazon's success.

I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for supporting me by reading my different posts and asking great questions. I appreciate it a lot.

I agree. It was telling me that I need to get some help. It was also telling me that I need to start doing video. So, yes it was a gift.

Just as your presence in my life is a gift also. You inspire me and always make me smile.

Sondra,

OMG thank you for writing this post I really needed this today ::))

As much as I love Jay - which I seriously do - I do not think that
he would show up in my dreams, unfortunately, probably because
of the mast amount of respect I have for him working under him.

But his Puggles are on my website - for the world to see!
They are the most adorable sweetest cuddle bugs you have
ever laid eyes on!

Thank you for sharing this today you sure made my day,
Susie ::)) (E-Hugs)

LOL You are welcome.

Sometime you can't help what you dream.

I do have respect for him. Enough so that I asked his permission before I posted this.

Hi Susie,

He is the best ist. I learn so much from his training.

Well, I hope you have your plans laid out for a very productive week. Vegas 2020 is on the horizon. No time to waste.

I am trying to work my way through the Boot camp training this week. I don't know if I was alseep when I did the first few lessons the first time or what; but I feel like I am doing it from scratch. Learning so much.

I'll look forward to your update.

I like watching Jay too, I think the geek thing is what’s appealing, anyway I believe 100% videos are more powerful than anything else. It’s almost like seeing into their soul, you get familiar with their mannerism and you grow to trust them because it feel like you know them. Thanks for sharing 😀

Very true.

I think the mannerism and letting the world see the real you, versus a polished, perfect snapshot is what humanizes us.

That is also why I liked the webinar where he introduced us to his dogs.

Being a video still scared the hell out of me but I force myself to do it, I feel it’s a must. I spend all night coming up with ideas for my YouTube channel

You've got a YouTube channel? I'd love to check it out and follow you.

Do you have it on your profile? If I google it, should I be able to find it?

On a side note, I've been going through that travel training on host agency website that you recommended. I am learning so much. Still not sure if I'll promote travel with affiliate links or pay to join the host agency. Maybe both at some point?

I have the same struggle I love Wealthy Affiliate but I also want to do travel and don’t know what to do

That host agency website training had a really interesting infographic.

It showed that most new travel agents typically take a couple of years before they start making any money. (Above $5,000 a year.)

I am still looking into it, wondering if the host agency will allow me to learn things or have access to travel materials, places and training that I would not have as an affiliate marketer.
