“Social Media & SEO Coach”
Founder of AvidSEO™
Hey there! My name is Justin Lewis and I now work full time online and loving every minute of it.
I originally developed the Niche Optimizer Website to help people that were in need of website creation services, since then I’ve turned “NOW” into an actual brand, built a steady client base, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this amazing business.
So, Who is Justin Lewis?
I’m a 23 year old entrepreneur who is extremely dedicated to helping others succeed in anything and everything in life.
To give you an insight into who I am and what I’ve been through, I’ll just go over a few things so I don’t keep you away from building your own business.
I Wasn’t Always Motivated to Succeed
Prior to any of this amazing experience that I’ve been through online, I was in high school.
I had terrible grades and ended up barely graduating, being the lowest in my entire class of 2008, but I still graduated and I’m proud of that.
Now, graduation was a huge thing for me, I was the only person in my family to graduate high school, so it was a great honor.. But only 2 days later.. My brother Jonathan, who was 31 at the time and suffering from schizophrenia, committed suicide.
Seeing as I had already been through the death of my brother, Lee, who passed away after a battle against lung cancer only a year and a half earlier, I was pretty screwed up in the head.
Living on the Streets
A month later, I was sleeping in my 1995 Pontiac Sunfire and literally lived on the streets for about 3 months.
Once I was over that hurdle, I began to work a lot…
Going from working at a pizza place across the street as a delivery boy, waiter, dish washer, and cook, to selling art on the streets.
Heck, I even worked for UPS for about 6 months, but they laid me off on January 4th, 2010. They screwed me over so badly that I couldn’t get insurance, unemployment, or food stamps because they laid me off in the middle of a “financial quarter”. I hated my life…
Interesting fact: UPS later called me back to offer me a job to work with them 2 months after they laid me off, by that time I was so interested in working online that I declined their offer and held my head high.
Picking Myself Up
To be honest, I wanted to hurt myself… But that’s right around the time that I found out about working online and the journey since then has been AMAZING.
Where I was 2 1/2 years ago, I wouldn’t really be able to do any of these things. Instead I’d be slaving away working my tail off getting no where, just to pay the rent. That’s not how I want to live my life and I’m betting you don’t want to live that way either.
I’ve dealt with a lot of crappy stuff in life over the last few years, but niche marketing has opened my eyes to a whole new world.
My goal in life is to help as many people as I can to achieve their dreams and goals. I hope that if you are reading this, you are wanting to do the same, we don’t need more evil people in this world, we need people that want to truly do something to help others. If you are one of those people, you will reach so many high points, it’s going to blow your mind. Just remember, everything you do, effects the future of your success.
Video of “My Life Before Working From Home”
In this video, I go over a few of the many struggles that I went through in my life. I know my struggles aren’t the worst and I understand that there are many people out there that have suffered more than I could ever imagine. But this is a page dedicated to my life and I feel that I should share this very personal video with you so you have a better understanding of who “Justin Lewis” really is.
The video is almost 8 1/2 minutes long, but it’s just me speaking off the top of my head. I try not to script anything that I do online because I want to be real and honest. I don’t want to be just another news broadcaster like most of the marketers I see today.
Leave Justin Lewis a Comment, Question, or Suggestion
If you’d like, you can even leave a comment below on how you met me, what you think about me as a marketer, and how you feel I’m doing online. I like to know what people think about me because I really want to help the world more than anything else. I’m not screwing around when I say I believe in “You.”
Justin Lewis, signing out.
