Tyler, you have quite a few roles. How did you become a filmmaker, writer, public speaker AND entrepreneur? Since young age I have been infatuated with the arts, but when I was 21 years old I left university and went into a deep depression. I decided that instead of doing what everyone else wants me to do, I would do the things I am passionate about. I decided that I wanted to use my talents to help people with their mental health and as a form of therapy.

What helped you get rid of your depression? I know it is an insidious illness that can pop up when one least expects it. Becoming mindful helped with my depression. When you are thinking and worrying so much about the past and future, it is easy to become deeply depressed. I re-learned how to live in the present moment, in totality. Meditation, yoga, and floatation tanks help with this.

What is mindfulness? Can one learn it? Mindfulness is a state of awareness and clarity. It’s the ability to observe the mind and live in a state of appreciation for life.

Mindfulness is something we all understood as children but with everything going on in our busy lives it’s easy for us to become less mindful. When learning mindfulness, you are really just re-learning the way you lived as a child. Appreciating the present moment.

How can one use their talents to help end stigma and promote mindfulness? What type of stigma do you mean? There is a stigma that comes along with having a mental illness. Many people are afraid to talk about their mental health because they are afraid to be judged. I feel that it is my job to start that conversation.

How does one come out with a clothing line? Is it difficult? It is difficult starting a clothing line. Especially for me, because I’m such a perfectionist. I have had the idea for years and just began selling it exclusively. When I was ready to start selling the items I had to stop judging myself and overthinking everything.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? In five years, I see myself as a happy individual, influencing people around the world… Making them happy. I see myself with love and stability in 5 years.

MuTu System Review – Get Rid of Mommy Tummy

If exercise isn’t touching your mummy tummy, you desperately want to get rid of mommy tummy and also your stomach domes as you work your abs, STOP! You have diastasis recti and you need to heal it.

Want to Get Rid of Mommy Tummy?

Then read on and watch the video above if you have not yet done so!

Diastasis recti causes a kind of gap between you tummy muscles and that gap makes it impossible for you to get rid of the “fat” – which is not fat at all, actually. There is a specialist fitness program for moms called MuTu System which deals with this issue.

It is vailable online and on DVD and it teaches you about your body after childbirth. It offers focused exercises that repair damage and build a strong, healthy body, that works… and it slowly helps you get rid of mommy tummy.

Then you get to work on sculpting abs.

Diastasis recti is the separation of the rectus abdominis (six pack) muscle as a result of excessive intra-abdominal pressure during pregnancy. For some women, the gap doesn’t close naturally and results in a “pooch” stomach.

MuTu System isn’t a cure for “the gap” in isolation. It’s an approach that conditions the entire mid-section to get the pelvis properly aligned and the core in good working order. It helps you to:

  • Adjust your alignment, so your body uses your core naturally
  • Identify and engage your core and pelvic floor muscles
  • Strengthen your core and pelvic floor with the right exercises
  • Flatten your abs with exercises tailored for your post partum body
  • Lose the fat on top through intensive workouts and good nutrition

When you do all of this, the gap will narrow. Happy side effects include a trim waist, flatter tummy, functioning pelvic floor and body confidence.

10 Tips on How to Promote Your Product Online

If you want to know how to promote your product online, read on. Partner affiliate programs are one of the most effective ways how to make money with the help of your own website. They mostly use the so called CPA system (cost per action).

This means that every time you recommend a product to someone and they then buy it, you get rewarded. Let´s have a look at 10 tips on how to promote your product online or someone else’s  products and earn money on it.

Before you start preparing any strategy, analyze the advertised product or service properly. Know its strengths and weaknesses and think about who the product is intended for and who could buy it.

10 Tips on How to Promote Your Product Online

1. Write a product review

Would you rather believe what the company says about their product or the person who tried it? People pay attention to user reviews more and more. They are interested in opinions of those who have already tried the product. When you create a review and faithfully describe the strengths and weaknesses of the product, it can help you convince many potential buyers.

2. Make a comparison

Write an article, which compares the selected product with a similar product. Emphasize its advantages and disadvantages and show your readers why the product that you promote is better than all the others.

3. Create a landing page (microsite)

To promote a product or service, create a special page (it’s called a microsite), which will contain all the necessary information. Then you can send your readers to this page, whether through a link about this product in an article or in a newsletter. On the page they will find all necessary information, including a button that will let them immediately buy the product.

4. Create a video on YouTube

Create a video in which you will introduce the product and explain to people why they need it and how useful it is in everyday life. A video is more personal and more motivating than text. Be inspired by the video of Mr. Jaroslav Kovar, who promotes Webnode.

[video_player type=”youtube” width=”460″ height=”259″ align=”center” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″]aHR0cDovL3d3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbS93YXRjaD92PUxrTE84MzhqYkxZ[/video_player]

5. Promote the product in forums

Forums are read by many people. Take advantage of it. Spread the news about your product in those forums that have something in common with it. For example, if you use the Webnode affiliate program, forums about making websites, blogging, business and technology will be useful.

6. Promote the brand on social networks

Create a Facebook page or group, and invite the people who you think would be interested in the product. On Twitter, follow potential buyers and provide them with important information about the product. You can even use Pinterest, a social network based on sharing files and photos.

7. Create an e-book for free

A freely available e-book about the product will silence all doubts that potential buyers might have. You can get inspired by a book created by Mr. Celso Lemes from Portugal to promote Webnode.

8. Send newsletters

Create a form on your site, with the help of which you will collect e-mails from your readers, and regularly send them updates about the products you promote. In these newsletters, add a quick link to a product website that you had created earlier.

9. Use banners

A banner easily gets the reader’s attention, but that attention also quickly disappears. Therefore you should not base your promotional strategy just on them. Use also the other ways mentioned in this article. Banners will have the desired effect when you use them in the right places – for example in the header on your home page, or just after the article about your product.

10. Do not be discouraged

Product promotion is not always easy and it can take a long time to get the trust of potential customers. It is important not to lose courage and give up. Work on promoting regularly and the results will come!

And what strategies do you use to promote your products? Send us your opinions in the comments below this article. Everyone is eager to learn any new tips on how to promote your product online.

Terry Put His Heart Into His Business and Founded Drexel Mortgage

Terry Gangaram, founder, Drexel Mortgage Corporation

Terry Gangaram, founder, Drexel Mortgage Corporation

With 30+ years of real estate experience, Terry Gangaram founded Drexel Mortgage in 1995 to help Americans nationwide make their American Dream a reality.

Starting with residential mortgages, Terry has helped thousands of homeowners buy their first house, investment properties, and commercial real estate to grow their business. Terry’s team at Drexel is committed to finding you the financing you want for the home you want.

Terry, why did you choose the financial sector for your career, namely the mortgage business?
Hi thanks for having me on your blog.  I chose the mortgage business from personal experience in the mortgage business.

When I bought my first home I realized all the things I was interested in making the home mortgage process easier for everyone.  That’s when I started Drexel Mortgage.  Drexel was founded to make it easier for people to get a loan to buy the home they want.

Was it difficult to succeed? This is a very competitive field, right? Every business has is a journey but I kept at it, persevered through the early stages of the business.  The success of Drexel comes from doing right by the clients.

When the clients are happy then the business succeeds.

Customer service, core values, honesty are all things which help make success possible, consistent values, trusting the business to come through when the customer needs the business the most is what Drexel Mortgage is all about.

What was the worst moment of your career and why? And also the best moment and why? The worst moment of my career was during the real estate bust. It was a surprise to see many companies, people, impacted by the bust.  Real estate is a trusted household name so it´s important to keep values protected in real estate.

The best moment of my career was when I first started Drexel Mortgage. Since then I’ve been able to provide loans to people all over the country so they can expand their homes, and businesses. Starting Drexel has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.

What advice would you offer to a first time home buyer? Advice I’d offer to a first time home buyer is, it is important to know which homes you’re pre-qualified for. That way you can save everyone time in the loan process.

Drexel Mortgage provides pre-qualification letters to first time home buyers before they start the loan process. Therefore home buyers know exactly which houses they can buy without any surprises in the loan process.

screenshot_1If you could change anything in your career, what would it be and why? It´s been a great journey building Drexel Mortgage over the past 25+ years. I started Drexel to make it easier for people to enjoy buying real estate.

It would be great to simplify the real estate market process as much as possible, reducing the clutter, the paperwork, red tape, unnecessary bureaucracy.  Real estate can really be a fun easy-going process once all the mysteries, myths, confusion is put to rest.

Call me at Drexel Mortgage, (718) 441-1515, I’d be happy to answer your concerns, put you on the right track to homeownership.  Alternatively, you can email me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? In the next 5 years I’d like to remain a core NY residential lender, but to be able to offer commercial loans throughout the country. Especially to small business owners, whether it may be traditional commercial loans, or stated income loans to the small business owners who are unable to document their income.

Thank you for a great interview.
