My Hiatus Is Over and That’s Good for YOU!

Almost a year ago, I ran a New Client Special and gained several new clients in a matter of hours. That was an INCREDIBLE day and feeling! There was no sales page, but a wonderful client posted about it on Facebook, and people got an idea of how I could best assist them from ExpertHelpDeskSupport.com.

A lot has transpired and changed in the past year. I have been on hiatus while life as I knew it in Daytona Beach came to an end, and I reluctantly found myself back in Atlanta. There’s a testimony I’d love to share about it all, but instead, I want to share what I’ve been up to offline, and the reason WHY I’m offering this New Client Special again.

A week after returning to Atlanta, I was offered a job at a small downtown law firm.  But after 30 days of being offline for 12-14 hours every day, I gave that job back, and decided to drive for Uber instead! You can read those details here.

Who knew I would actually enjoy driving around in Atlanta’s notorious traffic to give rides to strangers? Especially since I had been resisting coming back to Atlanta for over 6 months BECAUSE of the traffic!

I’m so grateful, however, that God’s Blessings (the name of my car), has provided the means for me to semi-climb out of the financial disaster that was my life this time last year.

Since August, I’ve driven over 35,000 miles, easily met and driven over 1,500 people, and currently have 800 5-star ratings. But I’m not trying to kill my car! Besides, I REALLY miss working online as I had been doing for the past 10 years.

To help with increasing my income while simultaneously trying to reduce my driving time, I applied for a few work at home positions that I thought could provide predictable pay. One company was particularly attractive until I discovered that their clients would be in control of the time of day that I work, and that simply is NOT going to work for me.

And this past weekend, I call myself starting a bartending gig at a local establishment. Friday night, I was SO tired and cold when I left, I couldn’t even make myself Uber the St. Patrick’s Day drunk crowd!

Saturday was spent in bed, in pain, with a cold. 🙁 Needless to say, I didn’t go back for my second night on Sunday. Instead I chose to drive to make up for time missed Friday night and Saturday. Confirmation that I made the right decision was earning more in 1-1/2 hours on Sunday than the 7-1/2 hours I donated to that local establishment on Friday!

When I ponder where I was in my life this time last year, compared to where I am now, I AM THANKFUL. He’s making ways out of no way, and I am reminded of the miracles I experienced last year. One of them was the overwhelming response to my New Client Special.

Now that my hiatus is over, I want to get back to helping people who need what I offer online. Below are portions of the email sent last year:

“If you are in need of some virtual assistance help, this is the week to get it – at a “Try It Before You Buy It” discounted rate.

Here are a few of the projects I have been working on for clients:

– Completed a full membership site in a weekend, beginning to end, from scratch
– Revised Powerpoint slides, updating from an older template to a newer template
– Listened to replays of past teleseminars and took notes to help client create slides in PowerPoint
– Created a sales page for a free telesummit and the download page for 19 speakers’ audios
– Created a squeeze page and thank you/download page
– List setup, integration, and initial email messages
– Answered support questions via email
– Researched help desk support platforms and set up a FREE help desk system
. . .
Here is short list of the programs I use:
– Aweber
– DAP
– Infusionsoft
– Instabuilder and IB 2.0
– Optimize Press 1 and 2
– Powerpoint
– Teamwork
– Wishlist
– WordPress

So now . . . about that special deal I mentioned. You can pick up a package of 5 hours of work for a FRACTION of the usual fee. Just $97 gets you 5 full hours of work, done as quickly as you need it done . . .

There is no sales page for this, so if you have questions, go ahead and email me now.

Obviously, there has to be a limit – because my time is limited like yours. I can only offer this to the first 5 people who send $97 to my special PayPal link. When I see your order come in, I will email you right away and we can get started.
. . .
Now is the time to get those projects out of the way, off your plate, and DONE. I can help. But you’ve got to act now because this special offer goes away soon.

I’m looking forward to working with you!

If you decide my technical skills and expertise could be of assistance and benefit to you, please accept my New Client Special at a discounted rate (available for a limited time) HERE.

If you would rather have a conversation first to see how I can best assist you, then feel free to schedule a date and time on my calendar and Let’s Talk!

Here’s to knowing that I’m looking forward to Making YOU Look Good, and Making Things Work Right!

Another Transformation

Although I infrequently post here, yesterday I renewed this domain for the 9th time because it was my FIRST domain name and site.  The intention from the beginning was always to provide information that would be helpful to people who are new to the internet, and in particular, affiliate and networking marketing.

When I registered this site in the fall of 2007, I didn’t really have a clear vision of what I wanted to accomplish (and guess I still don’t).  But I always post information every now and again that I think would be of interest to others, particularly if I have personally experienced it.  This post is no different.

Aside from the online activities I’ve been engaged with for the past 9 years, I’ve currently added an offline earning activity that was totally unexpected and still surprises me.  And it has its own affiliate program.

When I relocated from Daytona Beach to Atlanta in July 2016, it was after spending the better part of 2016 seriously resisting coming back to the ATL, while my entire way of life was falling apart around me in FL.

It was the life threatening event on July 6, the same day police killed the young man in Baton Rogue, that signaled my life would not be the same.  The next day, I wrote about it for posterity here, and read it to my best girlfriend when she called to tell me about the young man killed by police in Minneapolis that day.  All she could say to what I had written was:  “Oh My God!  Oh My God!”  The following day she called and said she heard, not the voice of God, but my deceased Mom’s voice:  “You need to pack your stuff and come on”.

Initially, I took a “real” J-O-B (which I haven’t had in 13 years) because it seemed the appropriate thing to do, given girlfriend wasn’t charging me for space to get back on my feet.  I spent 30 days being offline for 12-14 hours; waking up at 4AM to snooze the alarm until 5AM; get up, be dressed and ready to leave by 7AM to drive to catch the express bus that left at 7:30AM; and arrived downtown 15 minutes before I was to sign in and start “work” at 8:30AM.

The job itself really required 2-3 more people; they didn’t pay overtime, but expected me to provide ‘solutions’ and be the ‘remedy’ while sometimes staying longer than the 8 hours I was already there; and my commute home was, on average, an hour and half for less than 20 miles!

As much as I appreciated the opportunity and ‘steady and consistent’ checks on the 15th and end of month, I had to leave.  I simply refused to become “an extension of someone else’s chaos” or run on their hamster wheel.  I have my own.  🙂

In fact, leaving that J-O-B is what caused me to start seriously driving for Uber.  Like the next day!  It turns out I can “work“ half as long for about the same amount of money!  And believe it or not, driving in Atlanta traffic has actually turned out to be less stressful and more enjoyable than the 30 days of offline madness I endured working at someone else’s place of business.

THIS offline gig has surprised me because the primary reason for resisting returning to Atlanta was the traffic.  Atlanta=Traffic . . . it’s happening somewhere, all the time.  I have 38 years experience driving these highways.  But now, I get to choose what time of day I enter the fray. And I’m not in a hurry to get anywhere, just providing a very necessary service that is booming here in the ATL.

So after a day or two of driving for Uber to areas of metropolitan Atlanta that I’d only seen on the TV weather map, I had to laugh.  NEVER say what you won’t do, as God has other plans.   🙂

Another surprise for me in driving for Uber is the actual driving part.  Driving has never been my favorite activity, more a necessary one, like most people who commute to a place of business.  When I bought my car five years ago, and instantly named it “God’s Blessings”, I had no idea I would become a road warrior.

Almost two months later, I had relocated to Daytona Beach and burned gas driving all around the city to learn it.  Driving was easy and enjoyable there.  And several times a year, I made the 400+ mile one-way drive to Atlanta to visit family and attend internet marketing events. And while in Atlanta, always managed to drive as many miles as it took to come from FL.

NOW, I can see that all of that has been preparation for what I’m currently engaged in.  Me, who wanted NOTHING to do with Atlanta’s traffic is out in it every day!  And I have to admit, it’s like an adventure because:

  • I have no idea where I’m taking a rider until they get in the car;
  • I have driven to places I’ve only heard the name of;
  • I have been on streets I didn’t know existed which connect parts of Atlanta without being on the highway;
  • I meet new people every day; AND
  • I get to set a goal for how much I want to earn each day, and see it materialize in real time.

Oh, and not only does Uber pay weekly by direct deposit, after so many drives, you can request your money up to 5 times a day!  Seriously!  Did it last Sunday and it was instantly in my bank account!

So that’s my personal review of Uber’s service from a new driver’s perspective.  If Uber is in your area, and you want to earn extra money on your schedule, here’s your invitation to do so:  https://partners.uber.com/i/4b7e6e3vue

New drivers earn $50 after completing 20 rides (and the referring driver also earns $50).

If you haven’t yet requested an Uber ride, or think you would like to try the service, here’s a FREE ride on me (up to $15):  https://get.uber.com/go/4b7e6e3vue

Psst:  I discovered you can even add the FREE ride to your existing rider account under Payment.  Just click “Add Promo/Gift Code” at the bottom and enter:  4b7e6e3vue so it shows up for future use.

All riders also have their own referral code that allows them to earn FREE RIDES when they refer new riders.  Drivers earn $5 for new riders who use their code.

If you have any questions about how Uber works, either as a driver or rider, feel free to reach out and Let’s Talk!
