[UPDATE] As of 5:00 pm yesterday, I became homeless.

And I'm not sure of what to do. I have a little money left that would cover the cost for a few days in a hotel/motel, but after that I'm screwed. I tried everything I could think of including selling everything that I owned that was worth something, trying to find a job and offering my services on this forum and a few others.

But I guess it just wasn't enough.

I'm not looking for or asking for anyone to donate anything other than advice because I desperately need a different perspective on what to do in this situation.

I'm a believer in that everything happens for a reason and I know that I can turn this situation around for the better. However, I'm lost as to what I should begin to do.

If anyone is willing to offer any advice I would appreciate it greatly.

UPDATE:

Rus Sells another warrior member has kindly set up a way for me to make my videos for you guys and get paid instantly so I can better my situation...Here is a link to my services thread where I make the great videos you all talked about.

http://www.warriorforum.com/warriors...out-crowd.html

UPDATE #2:


If anyone has tried to get in contact with me through PM and my inbox was full, please try again. My limit is only 10 messages so that's why it got so full so quick. If you still cant get in contact with me, send a PM to Rus Sells and he will get the message to me.

I'm okay, I'm still at the hotel/motel/whatever you want to call it and I'm attempting to plan everything out as soon as I can with the help of some great people on this forum. If you've sent me a PM and I haven't gotten back to you, I will get back to you as soon as I can.

To everyone: You guys, I can't tell you how loved I feel from all of the messages/prayers that everyone has been sending me. Thankyou so much.

UPDATE #3:
Giving everyone a quick update.
Because of you guys donations and orders for videos I was able to purchase a bus ticket to my parents place. Though it's not a permanent solution, it will buy me some time plus I'll have a roof over my head. I had to leave my laptop in Canada so that my boyfriend and I will have a way to communicate with each other, but for everyone that has ordered a video, don't worry I will have access to a computer as soon as I reach my parent's place. So everyone you can expect your videos to be delivered either Wed or Thurs (depending on when you placed your order).

As soon as I arrive I will be sending PMs/Emails to everyone.

I just want to thank everyone again for helping me out in what has to be the most troubling time in my life, and to be willing to help out a "stranger".

    BrittyBrit,

    have you seen this thread:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...desperate.html

    There is a lot of great advice and ideas in there. Maybe some of those might help.

    I'm a believer in that everything happens for a reason and I know that I can turn this situation around for the better.
    I'm sure it will! Wishing you all the best,

      Do you sell many of those video creation services you offer here? They look pretty good to me.

      May I ask why you're homeless? I was homeless 7 years ago. I lived in a park for 2 months. It wasn't very nice. A friend walked past me one day, spotted me and forced me to come and sleep on his sofa (literally forced me as well). The point is at that time I started messing about online, I got a crap job but it paid for me to rent a room. I saved up for a laptop. Fast forward I live a good life now. Took a while but I do live a good life.

      Point is, you have the right attitude, so for now your priority is finding a roof. Thats goal 1, then you can determine goal 2. Either way today is just today. Tomorrow can be a whole different place. Good luck mate.

      Man, my heart aches.

      If the reality is that you are going to wind up living in you car, get out of the hotel now. That will leave you with more cash.

      Are you going to be able to get on the Internet to do anything?

      This is not the place to go into this.

      If this thread is pulled, PM me.

      Best of luck,

    First...

    I have been where your at now, so I'm in a good position to give you some advice.
    I know it seems like the end of the world, but trust me it's not.

    You say that you believe that everything happens for a reason and you are right to
    have that type of attitude, becuz that mindset is what's going to see you thru this.

    First, if you don't have any relatives or friends that you can stay with then you need to
    try and find out where the nearest shelter is, like salvation army or something.

    If you drive, try to pack everything you don't want to lose into your car.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT THING....
    Don't start giving into despair and feeling sorry for yourself, you need to try and
    actively make a list of things you need to do EVERY DAY to get out the situation
    your in... put your ego on the shelf and don't be too proud to ask those you come
    into contact with for help.

    Make a mental note of what you need to do each day to survive. Try looking for
    temporary job agencies.

    Contact all the churches you can in your area, explain to them your situation.
    I have found that churches can be a God send in times like this.

    Don't look back, what's done is done, you need to stay focused on what you need to
    do to each day to pull yourself back up.

    I can't stress enough about keeping a positive attitude, just keep reminding yourself that
    things will get better and don't wait for things to happen...MAKE THEM HAPPEN!

    and, last but not least, the most important advice I can give you is to PRAY and ask
    God to help you. I don't know what your religious affiliation is, but if you believe
    that everything happens for a reason, then maybe you also believe that there is also
    a God that hasn't forgotten you.

    Ask him for help and mean it with all your heart and soul...

    He WILL answer... trust me, I've been there

    I'll be praying for you...
    Be strong and God Bless!

      What he said was very righteous and meaningful. Also I have read about a very inspiring story about how a homeless guy used a computer in his local library day after day to article market his way to a great income.

      And no I did not read this on a sales page. This is just an idea as I am guessing you will not have access to a computer or internet.

      I know if I was homeless then I would probably do nothing but eat, sleep, and article market. Just an idea. You can take it or leave it.

    Have you offered writing services.... I believe if you offered a WSO for $4 for 500 words from a native English speaker you would get 20 a day in no time ( a few days) ...It will be a huge amount of work but you could make $80 a day working 10 hours a day... Once you have recognition, up your price.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles and I am available in a PM if you want moral support.... I will even order 5 articles from you if you decide to implement my idea above at $5 each.

    Edit: If the cost of the WSO is too much I will pay you upfront for articles to help pay for it ...

    OMG I am nearly in tears right now. I have been without shelter before about 1 month before a friend too took me in. I got a computer and slowly came to life.....It was a very emotional time. I now make more money than all my family put together..... and please....

    If I can do this anyone can. Hang on, and pray like a monk, dude.......use any doubters and people who say your a nobody and use that as a driving force. I did that and now that I am successful, dont talk to those that doubted me, they are not your true friends...have so many loving friends now and great life now.

    Buddy, thoughts and prayers with ya, keep going....u will be fine.

    Hi Britty;

    Fellow Canadian here, feel free to PM me and let me know which Province you are in.

    I completely agree with all the advice here, especially about praying. Also, close your eyes and start with "I AM" statements and see what it is that you want - hold those thoughts and really feel like you've already accomplished that which you want.

    Hold onto the belief that this is temporary and just know that you have support.

    Best Wishes.

    If you're desperate, look up couchsurfing and WWOOF, too. Particularly the latter, as it'll include a room and meals and you shouldn't have to pay anything. It's hard work, but some farms give you a stipend, and some even provide an internet connection and computer, so if you explain your situation, you can do some online work during your free time.

    That's what I'd probably do first if I suddenly found myself homeless.

      She is obviously someone who needs advice on how to market her skills better.

      Anyone with this level of talent shouldn't be in financial trouble IMO.

          OR BETTER YET Britt!!!

          I'll pre-order the thing we were discussing.

          I don't want to give too much info here for two reasons:

          1) don't want to give away your secret
          2) don't want this to turn into an ad and have the thread deleted

          So, I'm open to pre-ordering OR if you want to offer that up, I'll help with the classified ad - you'll need to be clear that you are pre-selling though.

      WWOOFer-friendly farms and a whole lot more places that will offer food and shelter (and often wifi) in exchange for a few hours labor a day can be found at ic.org. There are literally thousands of such places in North America.

      I've spent time at a few intentional communities just to "get away from it all." Great experience. Many communities run cottage industries, and are dying for anybody who knows how to market online, incidentally.

    However, there are very good suggestions from good-spirited warriors, especially the suggestions from those warriors in the same location with you.

    Please take a look at every suggestion. And take a concrete and meaningful decision.

    May the good Lord grant you divine help, favor, mercy and grace at this time of trouble.

    Hey Britty,

    So sorry to hear about your situation.

    However, i totally agree with the notion that everything in life happens for a reason, always for the better but we just might not realise it at the time.

    Your video creation skills are awesome. You already have many warriors on this thread wanting a video or articles (if you decide to offer that service) from you. You can add me to the list of 'i want a video created by Britty'.

    In post #3 Kevin has given some excellent advice, and this is advice from someone who has been there before.

    Where there's a will there's a way. Don't give up hope and i will pray for the best for you

    Riz

    Ps: When you come online PM or add me to Skype. I will forward you some information that may help you.

      Hi BrittyBritt...I know that things suck right now. I have literally been there a few times in my life. There is an odd feeling that comes along with being homeless that most people would never understand unless they've been there and it's almost like you never really relax because you don't have that home base where you can feel safe.

      I really do think that you can pull out of this though...well, you have to, right? I'd definitely offer up some PLR or writing services for some quick cash. I think you've gotten enough buzz from this thread to build a small list and offer either writing or video services.

      You have an awesome talent and should not be in this situation. My heart breaks for you because at one time in my life I was in the same boat. My advice to you is to set up a membership site for your video services. Make generic videos for the top ranked or high demand clickbank or find high end products.

      Those webmasters (warriors) who have membership sites that provide monthly niche web sites to their members (release x number of websites per month) to their members, consult with them to see if they will add your videos to their membership sites or at least send an email on your behalf to their list.

      Release a video/some videos depending on how many products you decide to offer per month to your members.

      A membership site will create passive income. Charge a one time set up fee for members around $50.00/each.. the service could cost $47.00 per month. Offer distribution service of the videos for an additional fee. Of course custom orders will be priced higher.

      I want to speak into your life so that this hard time will pass quickly. I know that you will be successful in whatever you do. Your heart and mind are in the right place. I send blessings to you for health wealth & wisdom in your life.

      Warriors, we all need continuity income, residual, passive it just adds a layer of security to your income.

    Best,

    Bad news Britty - take heart in that it sounds as if you have the skills to get through this temporary glitch. I give considerable time during the week to Manchester City Mission (UK) that runs an emergency night shelter - and I come across people like you every day.

    There will be hostels / beds available in your area . . . I know that they can be daunting places sometimes but you will be at risk sleeping in your car - and I do not advise spending whatever money you have on a hotel.

    Homeless in Canada - Resources is the first link I came across - search for homeless in your area.

    Keep us posted as to how you get on?

      I know Kays advice above is excellent and I couldn't agree more but on the off chance she can make a video I reckon she could do with the cash, so Neil click on her signature link and you go to the WSO where she sells these video's.

      Sorry Kay I just know if she can make a video the 50 bucks would sure help. I do agree with everything you say though. I said earlier, No.1 priority is a roof then go and figure No.2 which is probably food.

    Hello Britty

    My heart breaks... it is times like this that I feel that the internet is inadequate in terms of offering practical help - I want to take you home and feed you - but as I am in NZ that is not a very good idea. Look, like others on this thread I have been where you are now - in a refuge, three kids and nothing else at all. 11 years on and yes things did happen for a reason, because i would not be where I am today if I hadn't been sooooo striped of everything I had then.

    Hon, take the advice offered on here - there are a lot of good suggestions and a lot of warriors have offered you work already. I just hope you can get back on this thread so you can see how much we are all praying for you in our own way.

    Take care and be safe
    Lisa

      The advice above is good - but is it realistic for someone who is homeless to have a place to write for 10 hours? Or a place to make videos?

      If you are in a motel you could perhaps earn enough to stay in the motel - but that's not a good plan for the long term.

      From what BrittyBrit has posted in the past, it seems she's not alone - which is a good thing. She's mentioned having friends, family and BF who care about her (in previous posts).

      My advice would be to find a way to get back to where your family is - and start over. You have skills and knowledge that could earn money online - but you need some sort of stability to be able to make your knowledge profitable.

      Things do happen for a reason - but sometimes the choices we make are the reason. Admitting you need help may be embarrassing - but sometimes you do need to go home again if that is one option.

        agreed...hotels suck and don't give you that feeling of being "home" that is often necessary to function as a "normal" sort of human being (whatever normal is)

        I know that when I first moved to where I am now I lived in a hotel for about 2 weeks. From there I found a place to stay on Craigslist under rooms for rent. $400 a month plus share of utilities living on a 20 acre horse farm with a pond out back...very serene. From there I saved my money and bought a house.

        This same scenario is definitely doable for anyone and I know that if I became homeless again I could get back to where I am now by getting good and pissed off again.

            Richard - of course $50 would help...if she can make a video where she is now...and transmit it...and collect the payment.

            The "for hire" has been available since September - with good reviews. But hasn't been able to generate enough to pay housing bills.

            The bigger problem would be ordering and paying for things the OP can't deliver. She could regain stability and then find her reputation damaged by non-delivery. I've seen that happen here - and it would be a shame in this case.

            Kevin and Bretski gave good advice. They've been there-done that (the horse farm sounds great - I might have just stayed there:p)

              Kay,

              I was there myself also Kay as I wrote earlier, outside for 2 months and it was a very unpleasant experience. I'm not trying to give bad advice as I understand very well where she is. It is a highly unsettling and very frightening experience. I agree that it is far better to be embarrassed about asking to stay at a friend or with family than having to sleep rough. It is bad enough for anyone to sleep rough and it's from what I saw during these times that I agree the first thing she needs is a roof and somewhere safe.

              You are right Kay, get settled and focus on the crucial things, figure your business out next.

    Britty - that stinks, I really hope you get yourself sorted and quickly. I imagine it's staring to get cold now in Canada

    Some great suggestions above and you obviously have skills that can earn you money.

    Now I am assuming you have or can get internet access (library/McDs/Starbucks????) but you may not have a domain or hosting, which will be really handy for you to carry on and try and sell your services.

    I am willing to donate a domain & hosting for as long as it takes to get you back on your feet and I will also donate a web script vending platform to enable you to sell your stuff online (which one to be confirmed after I know how you plan to progress but more than likely either SimpleMemberPro or AffPayPro).

    Just shout - either PM me or contact me at DRT Online Ltd Support Help Desk!

    Hopefully this will only need to be a short term solution because you have a lot of good people rooting for you here

    PS...I don't know if these offers are legit or not. It's possible they are fake just to get you to pay their membership fee...On the other hand, it's possible they are legit:

    House sitters required for house sitting in Canada

    Either way, use your marketing skills and knowledge and start advertising EVERYWHERE for house sitting type jobs. Make a few "sales" videos selling the reasons why you are the perfect house sitter. Don't just sit back and worry. The very act of being pro-active will help you greatly deal with the anxiety and worry.

    GET A LIBRARY CARD! Get a bill or something with your current address to get a library card if you don't have one already.

    Seriously, while you are in between homes you can use the library for a steady internet connection and work on article marketing/videos for income. In my area you can't get one unless you have proof of residence.

    Hopefully you have friends or family where you are that you can crash with. I sent you a pm.

    You have a positive outlook on whats going on and you will come out on top because of it.

You were hand crafted by the Master himself. He knows you have the power to pull yourself up. Always believe in Him and yourself. He has not forgotten you, nor will He. His Warriors are at work now trying to help you.

      In your darkest hours, call out to him repeatedly, and He will answer. The only force in the world that can stop him from helping you is you.

      Sarafina,

      I speak from personal experience. Company I was working for went bankrupt. No job, no severance, no warning! I went to a library and paid 4$ for a day pass and started educating myself.

      The next day I went back with light bill and i.d. and got card.

      Spent 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. m-f and 10 - 5 on sat working my butt off!

      Had computer but no internet at home. So I wrote at night, posted and studied days. BARRREEELy scraped by 4 months in a row, then slowly started to make good money.

      My mindset then was - "The world sucks! I work hard and get crapped on. It is not my fault. I am a loser ...etc."

      But looking BACK I see that nothing is as tough as it seems as long as you are sucking down oxygen.

      It has already been said above, so follow the veterans' advice, but above all, DO NOT GIVE IN!

      I wanted to quit when I had no car, no internet and had to walk 2 miles each way in all kinds of weather to the library because I could not afford the $1 bus fare.

      But I didn't, and now I am fine.

      Pleeeaaassse do not give up and give the ******* that is FATE the satisfaction. MAKE YOUR OWN FATE!

      I am even more amazed at the kind offers of support and advice. She is getting what she needs right now Prayer Warriors you guys are awesome!

      I felt really moved by all of this and here's my offer. If she has a paypal address being a Christian I would be glad to send her some of my tithe money.

      That's really what the church should be doing anyway. If she is in Canada and I am in the US how would that work??

She did say she'd post here but for all those worried she is around and I have said hello and told her how much we all think of her and we're all here for her whenever she needs us. To be fair she's probably got some pretty important stuff to do but I told her to read this thread because it really will be of comfort.

            Thanks Richard,

            I was worried people who were not very observant, or were new may have mistaken her absence as something more sinister, and I never believed that.

            I am just glad that she has this thread as hopefully some light at what must have at first seemed like dark tunnel.

            So Brit take care of all those very pressing priorities and when you are settled lets help in any way we can.

    For everyone that has me in their thoughts, prayers, or sending me good wishes/vibes, I don't think I could ever describe how much it means to me and how hard it is not to cry while trying to type this.

    It feels good to know that there are still caring people in the world.

        If the cost of the video is too steep for some...instead of having her write articles for $5 why doesn't someone start some sort of "hotel fund" or something like that to at least make sure that she keeps a roof over her head?

          Good idea Jeremy, the dogs in her Avatar are involved. Those are her babies.

          Just so you guys know, Brittney does not use templates to make these videos in High Definition.

          These are well worth the money, they are totally unique to your brand.

          So lets get to it!

          Thanks to a couple of people who decided to help out already by sending mails to their humble lists on Brittney's behalf.

    I was in a similar position about 12 years ago.

    I went out and hustled any way I could. I bought stuff from cash and carries like cheap watches and gift sets and then went round pubs in south london selling them for a mark-up. Eventually I got a comission only tele sales job and managed to just about make enough to rent a room and eat.

    I laid my hands on a laptop with dreamweaver & fireworks installed and read the helpfiles so I could make websites to generate some leads. 6 months later the company I was cold calling for gave me a contract to generate their leads for them and I started to make some serious money (at 21 I had staff working for me and was making more money than anyone I knew. Pretty amazing really when just a few month before I was struggling to afford to find money to eat. Things can turn around in a blink of an eye with a single deal!).

    Moral of the story is go get something that will give you shelter and food. Even if its cleaning toilets, you need something to support yourself until you get your break.

    Life is a series of opportunities. If you hang in there and keep your eyes open one will present itself.

    I need to know "RIGHT NOW" how many of you on this thread will buy one of Brittney's 30 second videos to help her remain with a place to stay.

    Would you be willing to buy and would you be willing to drive some traffic to her offer as well.


    I am setting this up for her and she's getting paid directly via Paypal.


    I have spoken with her directly and she can make your video with around 48 hours turn around time as long as we don't get swamped, in which it will take her a little longer!

      This lady is a great lady.

      I've spoken to her myself by PM and she's been bombarded with help requests. Like many of us I've offered her any help I can. Your post Rus is excellent, it just goes to show how much we are all together, friends and marketers. Brits has probably got herself in a pickle right now but sometimes a crap place leads to the great place. It makes me proud to be here that we can help someone who's having a rough time of it and just show our nice sides for a second, not that we don't all the time but I think today, the warrior forum has looked after a fellow Warrior in a really good way. Bravo to all here today and good luck Britty, we're all here for you. I'll personally pay for you to be a war room member so you can get more than the 10 PMs you're allowed now. I know a lot of people are trying to help you mate and it's a lot more than 10.

      I am setting this up for her and she's getting paid directly via Paypal.


      I have spoken with her directly and she can make your video with around 48 hours turn around time as long as we don't get swamped, in which it will take her a little longer!

    I haven't really been a frequent user of the forum enough to know you Britt, but you do seem like you have your head on straight, so I know you will make it through this.

    A lot of people do give up once they have reached the point you are at. Giving up is never the right answer, so I applaud you for everything you have done. You will be in my prayers as well.

    If you do have a way to get on the internet, you can always make some spare money using mturk.com - it won't really pay much, but it can make you something if you have no other options. I hear you are good at writing, so you may also want to check out freelance websites to see if you can land some writing jobs, although it sounds like you may have better offers on the forum here.

    I know that a lot of local churches here will reach out to help people in your sort of situation.

    If I ended up homeless but still had a car and a laptop, I would spend my days in a mcdonalds or somewhere with WiFi, lol.

    Best of luck to you - you will make it.

        Good luck to you Britty. I have severely been affected by this recession too, otherwise I'd love to help you out. But you have my moral support and I wish you all the best!

        Things I've done personally to earn money on the side:
        - garage sale
        - sell stuff on ebay
        - sold musical equipment to music stores
        - sold gold to pawn shops or gold buying stores
        - put up ads to write articles, make banners, write ad copy

          Britt -

          Go get a job. I am not being mean but right now isn't the time to mess around.

          Get a job that pays you.

          I don't care if it is flipping burgers, etc - something that makes you enough money to live off of.

          Once you do that - do the internet marketing stuff on the side.

          Build up 6 months worth of income in savings, at the same time build up your business - then make the leap.

          Good luck.

            Easier said than done. Im doing im because my husband left me just after I signed a lease, the day before he got back from iraq. Ive been a bookkeeper for 10 years, never been without a job and now im 1 year and 3 months unemployed, no job, not even an interview. Ive even tried mall jobs, etc. nothing. My old Sonic laughed at me. Overqualified to car hop, but no food management skills. No way. Im doing IM because i simply cant get a job. I know you didnt mean it as such, but try not to be so cavalier with the old "get a job".

            Britt - ill be praying for you! Youre not alone in your struggles. Your spirit is an inspiration!

    It's painful to hear all this since I was kind of in a similar situation last month. I lost my job/apt and I moved back in with my mother after over a decade of being on my own. I got a new job and am starting my IM ventures again.

    If you're not too bombarded with pm's, I'll definitely request a service or two.

    Best of luck to you.

      Most libraries have free to use computers if they're available. I know because in my library homeless folks are there, too.

      I feel for her because I'm almost exactly where she is now except for kind relatives I'm staying with.

      I know it's not the keenest, but dollar stores and home depot are still hiring in some places. Even just for part time.

      Hey, with Blogger and Fiverr and a little ezine article ingenuity, there's definitely potential.

        I agree.
        I currently walk over a mile to and from my library every day to use their services since I can not afford an ISP or computer.

        Whatever I have to do, I am going to do it.
        I feel she has the same resolve.

      I would second this if you needed some more options. Dumpster diving especially around college campus could bring you some great finds and then head over to the pawn shop. Another option is to check out free stuff on craigslist and then resell it or head over to the pawn shop. I've done it, it works!

      Next I would build a squeeze page with kompozer. Start writing articles with bold headlines on ezine articles. BUILD THAT LIST AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!

    I'm 99.9% sure you are using After Effects so let me know if you want the .aep - just don't sell the actual template or use it elsewhere.

    If anyone is willing to offer any advice I would appreciate it greatly.

    Rus Sells another warrior member has kindly set up a way for me to make my videos for you guys and get paid instantly so I can better my situation...Here is a link to my services thread where I make the great videos you all talked about.


    I am reading the forum and people are talking about $5/article. I'm in. Please pm me with your contact info as I can't reply PM for not posting enough.

    IMO you've got to find offline work ASAP. Don't fall into the trap of believing that the internet will save you. It won't - unless you have prior experience that can take you from nothing to something quickly, and it sounds like you don't.

    The work this thread is generating for you will stop the bleeding only momentarily. There is no tactful way of saying this, but you are getting pity work here. It won't last. Your video work isn't strong enough yet to receive consistent jobs. You need more training if you want to make a career out of this.

    Now is actually a great time for people to go back to school to learn a trade or add to their skills. By the time you are done the economy should be improved and you'll have the tools to profit. Maybe start looking into art schools and student loans?

    I'm sure you are panicking, so hopefully this wasn't too harsh. I'm just saying, don't try to use the internet as a crutch to lean on given your situation. You need something real, and it's mostly unicorns prancing around online.

    i am truely touched by your situation and the outpouring of support from here on the forum. i have been in aweful situations before. I don't put my religion on other people, i know some people think i'm naive for being basically christian, however, in those instances where ALL i could do is pray, i believe God did help me. so i agree with some of the posts and will say i will pray for your situation, and hope that he puts more generous people in your path to help you into a better deal
    by the way...i don't need articles or videos, but i did PM you something that may be able to help you if you're interested. If not, i will be happy to send along some kind of help, even if i don't need the videos or articles

    Hi Britty Britt,

    I too was in the same situation as you are in right now. 2 years ago i took out a loan so i could take my wife and 3 kids to florida. We spent 3 weeks there and loved every minute of it. When we got back to the UK i checked the mail and there was a letter saying that the business i worked for had been closed down due to bankruptcy. I tried and tried to find a job but everytime i went for an interveiw there was always someone who was more skilled than i was, so they got the job instead of me. I ended up being in dept badly and couldnt afford to support my own family so i asked my sister if we could stay with her untill we got back on our feet. I really love my sister for what she did for us and i will never forget it. It took us 15 months to get back on track and that is the reason why i want to learn IM. I never want to be in that situation again.

    And the worst thing was that my brother laughed when i told him that we cant afford to live in our house anymore. Oh i beat the poop outta him that day and i still havent spoke to him since. Be strong and dont get yourself down, find a friend who will let you stay on the sofa for a while untill you can get back on your feet. You will bounce back in no time i promise you that. It took a long time for me bacause i had to get me and my family on track. Everything does happen for a reason, You also get stronger everytime you have been hurt.

    Keep your chin up my friend

        Us warriors stick together. Haven't found a brotherhood (sisterhood for those female marketers lol) quite like it yet.

        Guy's, come on. Order some videos. At this price it's worth it!


        Today can be the day you help a warrior in need. It's called paying
        it forward, she is not asking for a handout she is asking for work.

        Think of all those free war room memberships and free WSO listings many of the people on this forum have received. It's because of the pay it forward method. Now is your time to pay back the favor.

        My prayers for Brit,

          If it helps, you can download any of the motion video backgrounds I have at the store located in my signature free of charge. These will give you a lot of variety for the videos you work on.

          They are all High Def but I'm sure you can convert them to SD with a converter if you need to. AnyVideoConverter should work and it's free since most backgrounds are less than 1 minute.

          Just let me know and I'll set you up.

            Sorry for the delayed response - I can't figure out why I can't subscribe to this thread for updates...

            Anyway. Press Release writing is probably my weakest area by far, so I'd hesitate to say yes but can give it my all if needed. Otherwise, I could offer up some keyword friendly articles for her to use (or spin - whatever she wants) for article marketing. If interested, just send me a PM (so I find it faster than the thread)!!

    I would just like to say to those people suggesting that Brit look for an offline job, yes this may be an option... but

    How easy is that?
    What can she expect to be paid?
    When will she see her first Check?

    I am just saying, at minimum wage I feel that writing articles can make the same if not more money at $5 an article. Articles are by far not the only thing she can do.

    Yes working online is not for everyone, but Brit has a great service and a natural ability that was not utilized for various reasons... my guess is that she had not been on the forum long enough to have enough recognition... That I think after this will change.

    From the little everyone has said Brit seems to have her head screwed on right and has just had a run of bad luck ... .I think she will take a Job if that is what it takes, but there has been a huge opportunity set up here for her let see how we can help.

      Well said Cathy,

      I don't know about Canada but over here you can't get a job unless you have "a fixed abode" I.e a full time address. Britty doesn't have that, second, as mentioned it could be a month before she's paid. This isn't much good. Third, she has a chance to make some money now with our help. This is immediate cash and pays for the most important things-Roof and food.

      One more thing...who said she isn't looking for a full time job as well? Has anyone asked her? She's probably trying every dam option available to her. Let her worry about getting an offline job and we can help her with the online stuff. Plenty of people have full time jobs and still do internet marketing.

        WOW!

        Brit....Hang in there! By the sound of your posts you are strong and by the sound of everyone else's posts you are well respected. You have the perfect combination for success!

        I will definitely be ordering some videos...your work is awesome!

        I'm in Ontario and if there is anything else I can do to help, do not hesitate to PM me.

        I read in one of the posts that you have dogs and they are your babies. I can relate....I have three that are my babies. I hope that through all this you have been able to keep them with you. Whenever you're feeling overwhelmed just give them an extra cuddle.....nothing beats the unconditional love of dogs. If you find yourself in a position that they can't stay with you, PM me, I will find somewhere for them to stay until you get settled.

        My thoughts will be with you!

    Deep! I wonder how many other people have lost their home
    and would love to post the fact in order to get more work.
    Folks in all industries.

    Your videos do look good.
    as was said, this is a temp bump in work for you,
    due to the attention (marketing) you've received
    in response to your situation.

    I also don't have a house or apt.
    haven't probably half of my adult life.
    it's not always easy, but it's kindof fun.
    Get a tent. Couchsurf. WOOF. Barter for rent.
    Be Resourceful. show up at a garden and 'volunteer',
    many people will gladly let you camp at their place and
    use the kitchen bath internet in exchange for helping out.
    Heck, in Ontario i washed boats at a marina and ate dank
    restaurant food nightly as i lived in the woods tenting it
    right down the road. in California, i didn't even need the tent!
    no rain, no bugs. I slept right on the ground on a mountain,
    got fed daily great vegetarian quinine and the worlds best coffee.
    even in the ghetto of St. Louis I was given a roof over my head,
    just because I made some friends who had extra space.
    Truth be told, I don't want a house right now. or an apt.
    I call this situation 'house free' and I go where I want.
    just got done living on a mountain in Minnesota,
    on my way back to the west coast for a while.
    without a lease or mortgage, travel is easy!!
    especially when we can earn dollars online.
    But no matter how survival is maintained,
    it all happens on one principal only. that is
    Faith.

    Don't feel desperate. Feel capable. Creative.

    Then do what you want. Get a Job? if you want...
    Make a bunch of videos all day then pay rent?
    if you want... sleep in a homeless shelter?
    tent? family or friends couch? hahaha.
    if you want. look at your situation
    as one of freedom and choice.
    Resources, Options, Paths to take,
    they are many. don't get down.
    get inspired to master the art
    of living house free.

    I do think it's great that all these folks are coming together,
    and pretty much building an online business for you. huh...

    BRITT,

    Some additional thoughts of encouragement.

    If you're ever going to "make it", now is your time.

    It's often said that people don't succeed until they hit rock bottom or are backed into a corner.

    This is your corner. Now fight. Get angry. Get motivated. Whatever you want to call it - get your emotions behind it and GO.

    Take the time to document anything and everything you can. Not all the offers of help, even if just by copying posts out of the thread to a text file - in case the thread is ever lost.

    Service the people that are offering to buy from you and you'll have an awesome base of loyal customers, all in a few short days.

    This will make one hell of a story in a few weeks when you've completely turned everything around.

    You'll be able to write you next sales letter in the "rags to riches" form and be telling the TRUTH. That will connect with people.

    Stay strong. Move fast. We'll pull you along if you'll take our hand.

      Gary,

      Last night/this morning when I finely went to bed I realized that what is happening is a Warrior Forum reality show. People are watching the creation of a whole online business for some one in real need.

      Pretty cool, I kinda wish they kept the thread on the main forum as from that regard it is relevant. But its all good either way.

      Britt's gonna be busy most of the day making her first videos for new clients so I'll be managing the thread and coordinating all the other pieces for her as they come down the pike.

      Thanks for your encouragement!

        She's got the skills... we've exchanged a few PMs about how to market her services and other offerings she could do that may help her build out...

        I'm sure she didn't want her success to start this way, but she not only has a chance to turn her life around, but also to get a solid business foundation.

        I know she's busy/probably not in the mood to dive back into the thread. Since you seem to be in touch with her, please send my best.

    In the US they may not consider a hotel your residence until you have been there 3 months. THAT is when they remove a tax for non residents anyway.

    MANY have historically lived in hotels, so I imagine that IS fine, but there MAY be a minimum stay.

    Of course, I haven't been in a CANADIAN hotel. I just know that it seems that hotels all over have been treated in such ways.

    BTW OTHER places accept my hotel address as my residence. AGAIN, I am in the US.

      Exactly. If Brit lives in NB, from my knowledge of just reading the news, there isn't exactly a lot of available jobs there in the first place.

      It's SO easy for people to say "go get a job", but you know what?? Those are often people NOT in the situation. We've had our ups and downs over the years, and that's always the first thing people say to my husband - "go get a real job". Um, hello?? Easier said than done - and we live in Ontario AND in what is supposed to be the "technology triangle"... but try getting one easily when you're in your 40s going up against newly graduated university students. Not that easy - you're considered "too qualified".

      Now yes, there are many types of work, but I totally understand Brit - the fact is, as others have said, you HAVE the talent. You CAN make $ with it.

      Yeah, it can take 3 weeks typically here, depending on "when" you start working in relation to the payout dates. (Not sure about the US, but pretty much everyone in Canada holds back a week... so if you work this week, you won't get paid till next OR the week after if its biweekly.

      Caleb

      You "might" be able to use a hotel for mailing purposes, but typically only if you're staying "long term". Whenever I've gone away in Canada or the US, if I've been expecting a package, there's no problem usually just asking the front desk if you can use the address.

      For a job, well that might be a different story.

      Now - For Brit - I'm not sure about NB, but in Ontario the social assistance system ("welfare") MAY be able to help you... Granted its not usually the best, you might only get $7-800 a month, BUT they do have resources to help you get a permanent roof over your head.

      They call it Emergency Housing. (I have a friend who works at the Region here and she used to work in one of those Depts.)

      I'm sure NB has the same thing since its federally funded. Call them up - get a caseworker, tell them your situation and be completely honest.

      They'll help you get immediate shelter or an apartment or something because you're in the "homeless" situation.

      Yes, they may tell you its a 2-3 year wait (typically) - HOWEVER, "homeless" (aka - living in a hotel because you lost your place) would help you get in within a short period of time.

      The only catch is you're only allowed to earn "so much" over and above what they give you or they take it away next month... the good thing is - it would help you get on your feet and ensure you get yourself earning to keep going from there.

      (Just a suggestion!)

      In the meantime, there's two things I can offer to help:

      1) I have full rights to a membership script (PLR), I'd be happy to provide it so it can be installed and you can earn by selling something on a monthly basis. (I know it so I can help install and customize a bit too if you need me to)

      If you need say $2,000 a month to live off of (Supposing rent is $400-750/mo - I am not sure what part of NB you live, so this is just a guestimate from various rates I saw for apartments), then all it takes is 100 people paying you about $20 a month. (Doesn't seem easy to get but look at #2 before you panic )

      2) I would be more than happy to

      a) send a mailing to MY subscribers to encourage them to join your membership

      b) Set up an "emergency JV / Swap request" where those of us have lists, send a special announcement out to our lists promoting your membership (or whatever) to help you get the numbers you need.

      Seriously from a "fast cash" aspect for what your skills seem to be, a membership perhaps with say 2-3 PLR videos (and maybe 5 matching articles per niche!) would be a great way for you to earn without being overloaded.

      AND it would start you off getting a solid STEADY income going.

      Hope this helps.

      Let me know if any of this is helpful. (And sure, I could use some articles too).

        Hi Amber!

        Thanks for your input and for offering to install a membership script.

        Britt's and I were both up pretty late 2 am my time 4 am her time so she's prolly still sleeping. I don't sleep much so yeah, hehe.

        So today Britt and I are focusing on getting her site up and running courtesy of MattLaClear and I will talk with Britt about what you purpose. I'll have her take a moment and come read your post.

        Thanks for your support!

        Yes, they may tell you its a 2-3 year wait (typically) - HOWEVER, "homeless" (aka - living in a hotel because you lost your place) would help you get in within a short period of time.

        The only catch is you're only allowed to earn "so much" over and above what they give you or they take it away next month... the good thing is - it would help you get on your feet and ensure you get yourself earning to keep going from there.

        (Just a suggestion!)

        In the meantime, there's two things I can offer to help:

        1) I have full rights to a membership script (PLR), I'd be happy to provide it so it can be installed and you can earn by selling something on a monthly basis. (I know it so I can help install and customize a bit too if you need me to)

        If you need say $2,000 a month to live off of (Supposing rent is $400-750/mo - I am not sure what part of NB you live, so this is just a guestimate from various rates I saw for apartments), then all it takes is 100 people paying you about $20 a month. (Doesn't seem easy to get but look at #2 before you panic )

        2) I would be more than happy to

        a) send a mailing to MY subscribers to encourage them to join your membership

        b) Set up an "emergency JV / Swap request" where those of us have lists, send a special announcement out to our lists promoting your membership (or whatever) to help you get the numbers you need.

        Seriously from a "fast cash" aspect for what your skills seem to be, a membership perhaps with say 2-3 PLR videos (and maybe 5 matching articles per niche!) would be a great way for you to earn without being overloaded.

        AND it would start you off getting a solid STEADY income going.

        Hope this helps.

        Let me know if any of this is helpful. (And sure, I could use some articles too).

        Hi BrittyBritt,
        I am afraid that in an emergency situation the quickest thing to do to raise money is just to borrow it from people who know you and trust you.
        Also because if one is not used to a situation like that, it must be really hard to think clearly and plan anything.
        Failing that there are social services, churches etc. It is their job to help people.
        I cannot believe they would let you freeze in the street!

    I've been where you are........when I broke up with my ex I had no job, my car was dead, and the landlady was kicking us out so she could rent to a friend for more cash from welfare. It was winter.

    Don't let yourself get worried -- the universe takes care of people who understand and know that it will.........if you make effort, and it sounds like you are.

    Check out craigslist - sometimes there are work/rent situations that you can get into that will tie you over for awhile. Be careful, and call the police to check on who the person is that is running the ad. These situations can turn into a lot more work than you are told at first, but with your resources, you should be able to move on quickly.

    Good luck to you - I'm sure you will be fine even if things get scary for a few.

      We've go britt covered for a couple of days. Your input is greatly appreciated!

      Currently the status is as follows.

      We set up britts domain today.
      She's working on 2 videos.
      Matt is making her site to replace my basic one.
      Zim is writing articles for her site.

      Now Britt just needs a few orders to get things in more order.

      I would love to see Warriors step up to the plate and put some work on her table by setting her up with 15-20 videos to make.

        Come on Warriors, look lively,

        These are some of the best video's I've ever seen. There's no way these can't help your business move forward. Whats more you're helping someone in a far worse place than a lot of you. This is a young lady in a hard place. She's offering something that quite frankly is an asset to your business. For all of you who offered such good advice so far, let me give you some - 50 bucks for this kind of video will help you get closer to your goal and at the same time for once, instead of making someone rich, you're actually helping one of your own to get out of a hole. Come on Warriors, step up. See whats on offer. This is the sale of the century.

        Help yourself and help someone else. This is so different from any other offer I've seen in all my time in marketing.

          In case it got lost in this thread, I can give her all the video backgrounds at my store for free if they'd help her with her video creations.

          Just have her PM me and I'll give her a special code to take whatever she needs.

    UPDATE:

    Brittney has made only a couple of sales so far however it was enough money for her to be able to return home to Tennessee to live with family.

    To those who have purchased a video she will have them completed and sent to you next week.

    She is very grateful for all the support you have all shown her and I am going to continue to work with her to build her business!

    Why not take this time to pay it forward guys and get a video done to help her get this business soaring! Even if you don't really need a video now you will probably need one in the future right? So just pony up and get one now!

    Again, Thank you all!

    Hi Britt,

    I hope you are in a better situation now. I have been homeless myself, years ago, and I know it is no fun.

    I can help you out and give you free hosting and even provide you a domain for a year to help you get back on your feet.

    God Bless you and let me know if I can help.

    Britty,

    Are you offering writing services? If so I would love to send ~$100 dollars your way.
    PM me with your rates and payment details.

    Reading through this thread I think I can speak for most everyone when I say, we are here for you.

      Any updates? Last news was 6 days ago when the OP was headed from Canada to TN by bus. Were the videos delivered to buyers - is she in touch with others who were offering help?

      Can Rus or anyone update this thread? Did she arrive home safely?

    How can we give you advice when we know nothing about you ?

    Your age, sex geographics etc. If you are a young male I'd say get a tent & a backpack and hit the road. Go have some fun.

    If you are a middle aged woman I would not offer that advice = so how can we advise you when we have no information ?

    Update:

    Totally forgot that the thread was here.

    Britt did make it back home.

    She did deliver the one video that was purchased and I verified that. Good for her.

    She hung around with me in my company skype chat for about a weed or two then hasn't logged back in since.
