Hey there! My name is Justin Lewis and I now work full time online and loving every minute of it.

Justin Lewis and Motorcycle

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.

Story of my life.

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.

    You leave me humbled, my friend. Thanks for sharing that story. And just for some feedback, I’m loving the Halo 4 Fan Page, I was one of the first few hundred people to join, and I’m pretty stoked myself. But really, thanks again for sharing. And just to throw it out there, in case you don’t go to church, it’s a great thing man. Jesus changes your life. Just throwing that out there. Take it easy.

    Justin is the REAL DEAL. My wife knows him personally and all of this stuff that he went through is true. It’s crazy how tough this guy is. I can’t speak higher of Justin as a friend and as a human being.

  7. Justin Lewis August 23, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

    Thanks for the comment Jeremy. I’m glad you feel this way and Andrea is an awesome girl, you’re very lucky!

  8. Michael Bailee September 16, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    Incredible! Bravo and congratulations on a job being done quite well =)

  9. Justin Lewis September 18, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    Thanks a lot Michael!

  10. Kemi Kalu September 29, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

    Justin, you are truly an inspiration. Your story is very touching in a positive way, you have been through what most people will go through and feel that they can’t make it in life but you have chosen the path of success. I’m so proud of you and hope you also have a connection above, much greater than human connection to keep your sanity and peacefully get you through all troubles life has brought your way and anything (good/bad) life may bring our way. I like your mission statement and like the word of old: whatever you bring about for others, God will make much more happen for you. Keep up the good work and be blessed.

    • Justin Lewis September 30, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

      Thank you so much Kemi, you’re the first person to ever comment on my company profile :) I just made it public for comments yesterday. I think that anyone can achieve anything and know that by looking at the positives in life, we can go a lot further. Just because things are bad now, doesn’t mean they’ll be this bad in the future. Never give up on your dreams Kemi :)

  11. Phil September 30, 2012 at 5:01 pm #

    Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.


    • Justin Lewis October 1, 2012 at 11:51 am #

      Agreed :) Because now is important. And everything we do now will impact our future.

  12. darkwolf780 October 1, 2012 at 12:33 am #

    I’m sorry to hear about your brothers and if you don’t mind me asking what type of cancer did your youngest brother die from? also How old where you when he died. sorry for bringing back the Bad memories but I like to know especially sense I lost my grandma in 2010 from Pancreatic cancer. So I kinda know what you went through.

  13. MeestarMoostachio October 1, 2012 at 2:01 am #

    You my good sir are an inspiration!!! I can’t imagine your struggle man but here you are, you are a strong person my friend very strong indeed keep up your efforts online and you will continue to succeed and be happy (Y)

  14. DeaddudeRS October 1, 2012 at 3:25 am #

    how much shit the world can give much everyone will decide to fight you on every possible thing you try to do,making life worse not better.All my life, I have had to deal with illogical,crazy,insane people, family and non family, intent on just making life worse for those of us that aspire for reaching a better life and turn it into an absolute fight that’s counterproductive against everything we do!”If the World chooses to become my Enemy, I will fight like I always have!”

  15. Macena Maginity October 1, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    You are truly blessed that you could figure all that out at such a young age! We all have issues we struggle with everyday, but to discover that those events don’t have to shape our future is a gift! I can relate very well to some of those things myself, and I have lived a loonnnggg time. I like the saying, “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger”. You can get bitter, or you can get better. I love that you chose the latter. Kudo’s my friend! I know you will be highly successful!

    • Justin Lewis October 1, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

      Thank you Macena for your kind words :) I definitely have seen some people take the wrong road. Actually one of my old roommates who I actually got to move in with us was going down the wrong path, he was into drugs, alcohol, and just acting crazy. One day he told me the reason he was doing that was because he dealt with problems when he was younger. That’s when I had to pull out the card that I’d been through the same things, sometimes even worse. The only reason he want in his situation is because he allowed himself to be in it. Yes we can say he wasn’t lucky, but there are many people that are living much worse lives that come out on top. And the same can be said for anyone out there. Luck doesn’t have anything to do with it, it’s all about what you do with your own life. Keep at it Macena!

    Justin, you are truly an awesome person. I’ve never met anyone that was as nice and straight forward as you are. I think you will go far in the internet industry. I’m glad you have made it this far and didn’t give up. I believe you will continue to do good things as you have been. You’re gonna go far

    • Justin Lewis October 8, 2012 at 10:11 pm #

      Hey @0e4bf4a6c8eb7aae562b31ecb2c0ef4a:disqus , I’m glad I was able to meet you as apart of 757 Sport Bikes and I definitely hope to see our friendship go even further. You’re a great guy and I respect you as a rider and as a person. Also thanks for the kind words, I will never try to hold anything back and will always do my best to be as open as I can. Thanks bro!

  18. Primaryurge October 8, 2012 at 10:52 pm #

    I met Justin about a year and 2 months ago now, well he didn’t “know” me, but I commented on one of his pages A lot and I thought I had started to catch his eye, I made my own page and he actually helped me get my original fan base, I always have looked up to Justin and recently he helped me out by letting me administrate and moderate some of his smaller pages he couldn’t commit his time too. I currently work directly with Justin and he is helping me reach my dream of having an online career and lifestyle. Honestly if it wasn’t for Justin’s help he gave me I would have gave up on my online life before it ever began and I would still be in my depressed state.

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 12:24 am #

      You can and will succeed @f03a968d863c5dba754ac973356dd3c9:disqus , you have shown me a lot that one person can do. And hopefully that’s going to branch off into even more and more things for you to work on and projects that will ultimately become very successful for you. I wish we could skip to the future and see where things are going, that way I’d be able to prove it to you :) But remember, just because I believe in you, that doesn’t mean you’ll go any further, you have to keep pushing yourself to do that. But I will always believe in you :D

  19. Gbg639 October 9, 2012 at 12:49 am #

    I met you on the Halo 4 Fans Facebook page ad decided o subscribe to your outube channel when you made one and saw some of your vids on making a website and tips on making money and it was really helpful so thanks.

    • Gbg639 October 9, 2012 at 12:51 am #

      BTW I cannot login for some reason. I am on an Iphone.

      • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 1:01 am #

        I’d say it’s just because you’re on a mobile device, other than that, I don’t know why that would happen.

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 1:01 am #

      I’m glad I could help and thanks for subscribing :) It’s interesting seeing Halo 4 Fans finding interest in making an income online.

  20. DawnReklai October 9, 2012 at 1:00 am #

    Hey Justin! I met you in the Niche Blitzkrieg forum! You have been a help to me many times in there as I am still just learning how to do this online money making thing!! LOL!! I realize that was a bad attempt at humor! You do an awesome job at keeping it REAL! No worries there! Your story is really a rags to riches story and you could do so much with that! You could even go into your local schools and do a speech on it to inspire kids who don’t have any desire or the money to go to college! But at the same time teach them that learning is the key, it doesn’t always happen in a classroom setting! Keep your head high as you move forward! God bless you in your business!

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 1:05 am #

      Haha, it’s a great attempt at humor :P I appreciate the fact that you see me as real and I really do want to be seen that way. I don’t want to be another news anchor, actor, or just overall fake personality like most of these marketers I see online. To be honest, I walked into my old school, Indian River High School, a few months ago, and planned on speaking with a teacher named Mr. Mahl. He was a great inspiration to me and is really a big reason on why I am where I am because he believed in me. It showed me that just by having one person believe in you, it can change everything and that’s why I really do believe in everyone. It’s not just some false hope, I know that everything has potential and it’s all about unlocking it. Thanks again for the comments and good luck yourself :) If you’d like you can subscribe to the YouTube channel, I post lots of videos up there on a regular basis :D that way you can keep up with what’s going on as well as watching the blog here.

      • DawnReklai October 9, 2012 at 10:58 am #

        I will do that! Thanks Justin!

  21. Macena Maginity October 9, 2012 at 6:42 am #

    I met Justin through an offer that Micheal was promoting for Web Site creation to help people like me (clueless) get started. I have enjoyed getting to know him and learning about Internet Marketing. Keep up the good work! :)

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 6:07 pm #

      Ha and Macena, you have been absolutely amazing. I see you as being of our more active members and hope that in the regard you gain a lot of success. You’re a really great person, so keep at it!

  22. Seb October 9, 2012 at 10:41 am #

    I met Justin on the Niche Blitzkrieg forum more than two years ago. From the first time I had a question Justin has always been there to give me help and advice. Although I have had very little success Justin has been the one person who has helped to keep me plugging away.

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 6:08 pm #

      Seb, I will always believe in you man. I’ve seen you have low moments and I’ve also seen you have some very high moments. You have a lot of ideas and you actually take action on many of them, keep up with what you are doing and remember to continue to try and succeed with things are you are already having some sort of success with.

  23. Phil Abrahams October 9, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    Well I started down this road looking for away to get away from been a wage slave. There is a lot of c*** out there on the web and I too have spent loads of money on things that did not work. But one day I was looking on Google can’t remember for what and came across the name Michael Brown & Niche Blitzkrieg. Now his site just looked like the same make millions in 30 minutes like but it was not like that at all. so I took a look liked what I could see & sigh up. Started using the course and the forums and then came across Justin Lewis not having seen the guy but he has come across as a person you can trust seen what he put up on you tube and what he has been through and the fact that he is still willing to still help others says loads. He is helping me and other build a web site to get me started it is not free mind you but if he is putting the time in then he should be paid for his time. But Justin is showing me and other the right way to do business on the web and not to wast money and thing that tell you that there is short cuts to making millions as they do not work or could get you into trouble. thanks for your help Justin and more power to your elbow. PS he even has found time to put up his computer table :-) .

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

      Haha, love the ending of your comment Phil :P You won’t let that one go! But hey, yes I did find time and I’m thankful for that ha. Anyways, thanks for the superb comment and from talking with you, I know you are in this to win. You wan to succeed and you can succeed, so prove it to me that you will. I’m going to do everything in my power to help you get there Phil!

      • Phil Abrahams October 10, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

        “You won’t let that one go! ” Errrrrrr NO!! ;-)

  24. TheCommander35 October 9, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    I’ve met you sort of speak through FB (Halo 4 fans) and have been following you for quite sometime, I believe since the beginning. You’re a very cool guy. Extremely touching man. I had no idea how rough your life would be. All that you said has inspired me. And I’ve been through similar situations. I hope it eventually gets better man. Cheers. Keep it up. Ps. You’ve helped me with not giving up hope on my goals of success on the web.


    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

      Hey Jake, I saw your videos a while back and really enjoyed your personality as well. You aren’t trying to be fake, you’re just being you, and that’s awesome. You’re doing a great job on your channel and I appreciate the fact that you’ve been following me. It’s funny how people connect. I didn’t even know when I contacted you that you were already following my stuff, it’s crazy how that happens. Thanks for the comment and NEVER give up, you can do it and I believe in you. Oh and a tip. Did you know you can make money with your star wars collection? You could join an affiliate network like or and promote Star Wars merchandise and make $$ that way, just a thought.

  25. Phil Abrahams October 9, 2012 at 6:09 pm #

    Hay Justin I can’t log onto the site and I am using my laptop or PC.

  26. Josef Connor Brack October 9, 2012 at 6:26 pm #

    I hope i am not viewed as a person who is writing this just for the graphic, because I really just want to write my mind on just how far you have come. First I must say that you have come a long way in such a seemingly short period of time and that I am impresed with your success. I also wish you luck in the future. I wish more people had the ability to help like you want to. Your goal is a high and mighty one but with your attitude towards life in general you will achieve it. I have also come a long way in life i went from the lowest of the low in a suburb in Florida, being stuck with F’s in school to honor roll and State meet in track and cross country. I now have a life ahead of me. I have recently been invited to various colleges on scholarship money. Hope to one day help out the world like yourself, in any way possible. Thans for reading have a nice day

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 6:35 pm #

      Hey Josef, thanks a lot for the comment and being real. It’s hard finding people out there that truly want to help others and I know that from experience, that’s why I want to take it upon myself to go in that direction and not be like other marketers. Being connected with your audience is really important.

      Now a bit more personal with you.

      It seems we’ve both been dealt a very similar hand and I love the fact that you are looking at the positive side of things. If you keep heading in that direction you will no doubt succeed in whatever it is you want to accomplish. If you want to go to college, go to college, but make sure it’s your decision.

      You can achieve anything and remember, I will always believe in you.

  27. Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 10:10 pm #

    :) I’m glad you liked it.

  28. Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 10:13 pm #

    He has lung cancer and hepatitis C I believe. I was a bit younger so I don’t know the specifics and didn’t get to hear much about it, but I knew it was killing him and I wish with everything in me that it wasn’t. I was 17. It was definitely hard to deal with. Even more is that I have even more people in my life with cancer and my mom had a cancer scare recently that terrified me.

  29. Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 10:13 pm #

    Thank you very much Liam for the kind words. It’s still tough thinking about my brothers. I cry regularly, but I’m open about it. I don’t want to have to hide anything.

  30. Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 10:15 pm #

    We control our lives. Even though others can make it hell, we control the outcome. You decide if you would rather be victim or rise above it. Luckily, I was able to rise above it and I believe everyone can do the same thing, it’s just about your mindset. It took me time to grow into this mindset but by having people believe in you, it really helps. Never give up on your dreams and screw those that try to pull you down. They aren’t worth it.

    I like reading this page every once in awhile. Throughout all of the bad, you fought through it and made it. Reminds me to do the same.

    Some days, it seems as if I will never get to where I want to be but then again, I have to remember that in the big picture, I am still just a newb when it comes to my niche. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Justin Lewis October 9, 2012 at 11:57 pm #

      You are just beginning bro. You have so many opportunities in front of you, just keep at it. It’s going to take time. But so does everything else. The beauty of this is that revenue can be earned with very little expenses, versus creating a physical business where you have thousands of dollars of monthly expenses.

      Keep at it @facebook-804783773:disqus and I’m glad that I could give you some feeling of inspiration :)

  33. MeestarMoostachio October 10, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    Not a problem you are strong to be open about it and you have come far and will go further :) PS my friend agrees and says “you are an inspiration to many and don’t ever give up, you have and will continue to make your family proud :)

  34. George Norberg October 10, 2012 at 11:41 pm #

    Justin is a solid guy. I’ve met very few people in online media with his level of passion and dedication to helping others. We’re working together now to promote Halo 4 Fans and various Youtube channels, and I can’t wait to see how things turn out when Halo 4 launches!

    • Justin Lewis October 11, 2012 at 11:25 am #

      Ha, thanks a lot George! You’re an awesome dude as well. I’m glad to be working beside you on H4F and TL7. It’s funny, because the whole reason I started the page originally was as a teaching experience for my students, it’s turned into such a great success now and with your help, it’ll become even better :)

  35. Eduardo Rivera October 11, 2012 at 12:12 am #

    I have enjoyed the learning experience. Justin is finishing up my first website and I have to say it has been a pleasure to find an Internet marketing person that actually speaks to his clients. I have also purchased many products but this is the first one that will actually give me something tangible in return.

    • Justin Lewis October 11, 2012 at 11:24 am #

      Hey Eduardo :D

      I love being interactive with people. It’s something that I wish most companies out there were doing with their clients. I mean imagine if you ordered a pizza from Papa Johns and John Schnatter (CEO) actually delivered the pizza to your door. It’d be a totally different experience.

      It’s nice to connect one on one. And thanks a lot for being apart of my growth as an individual :)

  36. Justin Lewis October 11, 2012 at 9:01 am #

    :) thanks for the support! And I really do appreciate it. Lately I’ve been hearing many people say they have shared my stuff with their friends and that’s a really good feeling.

  37. Joe Caraballo October 11, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    As I have expressed before, this is a great opportunity that you have shared with us; and the way you are doing it is really wonderful. Your unselfishness sharing your plugins in our projects is something worth to talk about. I, as many millions of workers, am looking forward to see the day when I could say, “Bye, bye, job”, and I believe this is the way to do it. Thanks Justin for all your help. God bless you man!

    • Justin Lewis October 11, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

      You will get there Joe! I will do my best to help you achieve those dreams and hopefully I can reach out a helping hand to those millions of others as well. At least for the ones that don’t want to work where they currently do.

      Go for your dreams and don’t hold back, you can do it and I believe in you. I once felt like it wasn’t possible, but it is and I’ll share any of the knowledge that I have in order to help others achieve the same.

      Thanks for the comments Joe!

  38. Rog October 11, 2012 at 12:44 pm #

    I think everyone appreciates the valuable information you share on how we
    can all continue to learn more about how website building and optimizing works.

    Those of us whose website you are building through are
    being continually informed about the steps and progress you are making is
    excellent service indeed. You can appreciate it even more when you have browsed
    other websites some of who branch off into specific website building niche
    ideas based on making money online. Then you come to the realization that they
    are scams who continually entice you to make further payments on an ongoing
    basis to get to the final advertised software products, that are nothing
    similar to what was initially advertised, but only junk.

  39. Glen October 11, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    Hey Justin. You are a true inspiration to others. If people are looking at Nich Optimiser, chances are they are looking at a new career and or have some money issues. This would be the case for me. I hope to learn all I can from you and get something going for myself. I’m sure you are the man to guide me into the right direction.

      Thanks for the kind words Glen :) I really hope that I can continue to inspire you.

      I agree. Many of those looking towards Niche Optimizer are in need of some sort of change or assistance in their life.

      And I’ll do my best to help them get there, including you @5dfb969552a60cf660d5091ec7de143d:disqus :) You will succeed if you keep with the same mindset!

    Well, that is quite a story and what I admire most about what you are currently doing is that based on your background you certainly could have chosen a road filled with despair and destruction but instead you chose not only to live strong for yourself but for others as well. This is a noble and courageous act.

    I look forward to working with you.

    The experience so far has been great! I am very much looking forward to the sites completion.

    As far as I see it, when you underlie good marketing with a selfless and ethical philosophy one can only bring about good results.

    So, hopefully with your help all of us will become successful Internet marketers who can then help the world do the same!!! :)

    May God protect the freedoms of America… As well as you, Justin Lewis…

    Well, let’s talk about Justin —

    When I first joined Niche Blitzkrieg and the NB Community Forum, I kept seeing Justin’s name and reading his posts that he had written as a moderator on the forum. I can’t remember the exact wording of his tagline at the end of his posts, but it said something like “I have made, um like a zillion websites, and you can too!” Like I said, I can’t remember the wording, but it was enough to make me go and search for his story. I found an interview that he had done with Michael Brown. It was then that I really saw the beautiful heart of Justin Lewis. He was so genuine and open about his journey. Here was a kid that had been really shaken by so much junk in his life – divorced parents, the deaths of loved ones, a failed educational and support system in high school – and yet had found something in himself that he could rise above all his circumstances.

    I have heard his story numerous times and it never ceases to amaze me how he has really found his calling in life – the thing he really loves to do. I think that one of the reasons he finds such joy in what he does is that he is able to think outside the box. He has an avenue to create and come up with new ideas and put them into action. This comes from knowing the system and how it works. He has been soaking up all this information about how things work on the internet and can see opportunities to try something new. It is an amazing creative outlet for him.

    Another reason that Justin is so passionate about what he does is that he truly has a heart of serving others and has found a way, through his sites, social platforms, and forums to share his knowledge and give inspiration and motivation to others. He truly wants others to succeed. Helping and serving others adds so much value to our lives.

    You are an amazing young man, Justin. I do not know where you stand spiritually, but I can see how God has touched you in an awesome way. He has taken the bad in your life and has molded it into something beautiful.

    Blessings to you, Justin.

    I met Justin through Michael Brown Niche Blitzkrieg. I have been working for a manufacturing company for 18 years. A few years ago they started laying off.. Every so often they lay off quite a few people it is scary and that is when I started looking for other things to do. I spent a lot of money on scams or things that I just couldnt do. (Sales is not someting I am good at!) Around a year ago I was really stressed, the company I work for went through a restructuring and downsizing, a lot of LONG term employees were let go. I got scared, I had been working lots of hours 7 days a week, I knew there was money to be made on the internet so I took a week vacation and searched and I found Michael Browns Niche Blitzkrieg, of course I first thought it was another scam but I read through it a researched it and actually couldnt find a review that deterred me so I checked it out I really started learning alot. and started working on websites going through Michael Browns tutorials. Then he recomended Justin Lewis websites. I have learned so much between Michael and Justin. I am excited to see my website that Justin is working on. They just let more people go this week, at my job. I am tired of living under the threat of losing my job on a daily basis. I cannot wait for the day I won”t have to worry about it. Thanks, Justin and Niche Optimizer!!

      Ha. Yea I got some sleep last night, was up for almost 46 hours. Even when I laid in bed I couldn’t pass out, haven’t felt like that in a long time. But hey, I’m back and feel great.

  44. Terry L Cletcher October 21, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    I met Justin after I contacted him to see what he would charge me to finish the web site I’d started. He looked at what I’d done so far, said sure, he was up to the challenge. I have no regrets in asking him. I felt sorry for Justin after a while because he ended up starting it from scratch. While we had several delays, a couple of times that Justin “lost track” of me, something inside me told me to hang in there, that you, Justin, would finish. Each time Justin, you apologized sincerely and never with a lame excuse. I recognized something in you, Justin. You are starting an online business that you have a real desire to do correctly. I also realized that, just like me, I get ‘distracted’ while doing other projects. I’ve not been through what you have with the loss of Lee, then Jonathan, I’ve been through the graduating at the bottom of my class. I was 350 out of 525 or so. I’ve never been homeless, but have done a lot of crappy jobs when I was unemployed, laid off or on strike. I appreciate the almost 2 hrs. you spent with this 59 yr. old teaching about my web site & what went on in the background. Justin, you went above & beyond for me. When I’m ready, you’ll be who I ask to do my next ‘Niche’ web site. Thanks again, Justin. Keep up the great work!

    Justin, this has been such an amazingly positive, rewarding experience working with you– on so many levels. I found you thru the Niche Blitzkrieg forum. God Bless Michael Brown! There thru Michael’s program I went from knowing next to nothing to actually building my own site!! WOW ! Having enlisted your services, am learning so much more! You totally understand where I have come from and my dream of building a better future.

    I have never seen such a positive environment to work in. You have been so open and honest, encouraging me when the fears start to invade my optimism. You lead by example which is the best lesson of all. You are so precious! The community is starting to feel like my family. Others don’t believe in me; think this is another pie in the sky effort.
    But I come here and feel I belong; that I can learn and grow and yes I can be successful. My efforts and perseverance will allow me to succeed. As others share their questions I learn even more. You and your team make me feel like they truly do have a vested interest in my success and all are doing their best to give quality service. You really cannot put a price on that.
    God Bless you!
    We all have a purpose and I so believe u have been helping me find mine.

  47. Tonya October 26, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    Justin I love your story! It’s very inspirational and I can definitely relate to a lot of what you have been through…I really enjoy working with you through iWriter; you’re by far the best requester on there. I work as an insurance agent from home but write during my spare time because I finish my work so early in the day. You have provided me with a lot of fun articles and I have been able to use my creativity with them, which I enjoy. I’m really enjoying learning new ways of writing and only hope to get better in the future, thanks for all the help!

    • Justin Lewis October 27, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

      Tonya, you are an excellent writer and have done a wonderful job over these last few weeks, I’m definitely going to use your services again and if you ever need work, let me know. Thanks for the comment as well :D I know a lot of people can be rude when ordering services, but I feel it’s important to be kind to those that are doing you a service, this way we can all be happy.

Thanks to you and Michael Brown I have learned and am learning so much. I have searched the internet and lost a lot of money before I came across you guys. I will be telling others about you!!

    Well Justin, we’ve been in regular contact and today I took delivery of the new sites you and your team built. I am very please with the sites and look forward to monetizing them.

    I really appreciate you staying in touch during the process. It certainly impressed upon me that you were organized, and everything would be fine. It was.

    I look forward to continued study with you and Michael.

    Thanks again–to you’re entire team!

    Amazing how you manage to simplify the complicated and explain how
    things work, so clearly.I really appreciate the personal touch you bring
    to your video tutorials and links together with a glimpse into what’s
    important in life for you. You have the gift of being able to inspire
    and motivate me. I’m sure it works on others as well. Looking forward to continuing our efforts together well into the future, and all the best in your new project with Michael.

      Hey Dave,

      It’s people like you that make things a lot easier for me, you were organized and very easy to talk to, so thank you :)

      I hope that you continue to learn and don’t give up on this venture because it really is amazing.

      I’ll do my best to continue to motivate you to succeed in anything that you go after online, don’t be afraid to ask questions Dave!

      Oh and the project with Michael is going to be AMAZING :D

    I just realized something for the first time.

    When I was younger, I wanted to be a firefighter. As I grew up, I realized that I wasn’t interested in being a firefighter. So tonight I started to wonder why I wanted it so bad. I feel that psychologically, it was never about being a firefighter, but rather helping people.

    I’ve never looked at this situation like this and once I opened my mind to it, it immediately became apparent that this is what I was born for. I want to help people, far and wide. Not just at one thing.. but everything.

    My belief is that anyone can do anything if they just try. You want to be free, stop living in a prison. You want to be president without a college education, change how the system works. You want to aspire to be someone great, then be yourself and stop trying to be someone else.

    This is who I am, you are who you are. And just remember, I believe in you.

    Hi Justin:

    I need your help building a website, I have been paying a hosting fee now for a while and honestly do not know how to get the 2 together. I want to develop an on line business that does’nt require alot of my time because my family and a fulltime job does that. I want to break away from my demanding job and work from home. I would appreicate any help you can give, or better yet can you build a website for me? One that can generate a comfortable income. Host Gator is who I pay my hosting fee to at $8.95 per month.

  60. isaac December 16, 2012 at 12:12 am #

    lol, I found your membership site off of your halo 4 fan page. Coincidentally, I was looking for examples of successful fan pages and how they are monetized. I got a whole lot more than I bargained for when I read your blog, which has a lot of good info btw.

    Since your membership site launched on dec, 4th I’m guessing that it is up to date w/ current actionable information. I was just wondering why the traffic on and this site is so sporadic(according to Not trying to be a dick or anything just wondering.

    Anyways, I’ll most likely be signing up tomorrow morning for $1 trial. I think I can learn a lot from you since I found your IM site through actually looking for successful social media pages vs googling “how to make money online” lol :)

    Justin Lewis December 16, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    Hey Isaac,

    Yes the membership site is updated with current actionable information that you can use TODAY to get started and headed int he right direction with new information coming out regularly. I had a few things scheduled for the past Friday, but I became sick so I’m finishing those parts up today.

    But the site is updated regularly and we have a lot of great members inside :)

    I’m glad you also used social media to find us, usually when people type key phrases like “how to make money online” or “make money from home” or “make money online” they come up with scams or people trying to trick them into believing them.

    We have values and feel that by having these values of our own we can help people succeed further than their original expectations if they put forth the effort.

    Also isn’t really a good metric for understanding traffic. The only way to REALLY know how traffic is on a site, is by owning it and using the statistic tracking tools like Google Analytics and StatCounter.

    This site receives upwards of 400 visits a day, whilst receives an average of 1,000 right now. However, I am pushing to focus on a different site where I can bring all of my projects together (for gaming) so you’ll see that in the future inside of the University :)

    See you inside soon! :D

    I met Michael first, when I was a tentative client, and $47.00 didn’t seem to be too much to lose. I had really been “burned” on the Internet, and was a huge sceptic.. . but I signed-up. My wife wasn’t convinced… That was the Fall of 2011.

    Huge heart attack, January 2012, my wife called to ask Michael to drop and refund us in these circumstances and he did it !!! An internet guy that honest and understanding ? Amazintg… but he stayed in-touch by e-mail and and in six months introduced me to Justin ! The doctors had given me one chance in one hundred… but with six months of recuperation I was ready to get started…

    You are a large part of the reason to keep “plugging”. Both of you, thank you !

    Hi Richard! I’m so glad you survived your heart attack. When I first started, I really did a lot of research on the various programs I found and Niche Blitzkrieg was the one I found that had no scam reports! I liked Michaels whole attitude about it…for instance, that you wouldn’t have to spend any money except domain names and hosting. I’m so glad I found him and then Justin…they are great guys. Thanks for sharing your story here and I hope to see you in the forum more!

    Hey Justin, thanks for the site. I do believe in you guys but I would like to look around the site before making a commitment. As you know my illness & taking care of hubby 24/7 doesn’t leave me a whole lot of time, so I have to do things ‘slowly’ for now (this sounds crazy but my brain is functioning like a ‘turtle, slower then molasses) lol! I have a lot of catching up to do and I’m also a newbie at this. I’ll work on this a little at a time until whatever it is I have gets better. Hope you understand. I think you guys are great. ;)

I watched this video with the hugest smile on my face because you are very attractive and good looking. I love the way you present yourself in the video. You are a confident speaker, very charismatic on video and speak extremely well. You speak so much better and personal and down to earth than most others who make videos. If i were to ever show videos on a website or have someone speak on them, you would be my first choice to hire. You speak from within, and your words just flow, no awkward moments or robot/monotone moments like others have. I hope you see that too :-) Well done on all you have achieved.

    Hi Justin,

    I read your thread just within last week on warrior forum. Do you remember the 3k a day thread? i like it so much : many gems there and words of wisdom. I was very much touched by your sincerity in telling about your humble beginnings and your take off in IM: i was also touched by your genuine willingness to help. Definitively, your story relates to many of us who have been struggling and dreaming to make it online. It is a great source of inspiration and hope, hope that success is achievable for all!

    I have been surfing online since 2004 and had been the type of person, slow to take action. Then by the end of 2011, i registered to WF as a warroom member. Being of that group, i discovered so many interesting topics, but still was slow to take action.

    Well, i paid 2 domain names and host by the month of May (last year), but i only really put one domain online (only recently), just to present some health products related to my MLM business (still to improved) : that was my first project (i am a total newbie), coming live online; although not perfect yet, it has given me a level of confidence and i want to do more.

    I am still hungry to diversify my work online and make a full living from it. Wish this time will be the best one, with the support of all at Nicheoptimizer. With the warm welcome (thanks Dawn & Michael! laugh) i received today, when i introduced myself, i feel already at home, i believe i will have brilliant moments here.

    Thanks once more.

    All the best to your team and you.

I may need a little hand holding to figure what kind of monetizing programs work best for the type of site you built. Its about preventing diabetes.
