My Biggest Regret

My biggest regret:
 
This post is to inspire other men and woman to support those men and woman to deny the decision of ANY FORM of contraception…
 
8 years ago I got a vasectomy due to some peer pressure from close friends and you can say it is what society teaches if you hang out with folks that don’t move you where truth lives.
 
I knew in my heart at the time that it wasn’t right but for secular reasons I proceeded with the procedure. I made up things in my mind about I only have 3 seats in the back of my car so I couldn’t possibly have a family of 6+… And I was too cool for a van…etc. Especially in California, where the focus is on the wrong things like money, titles, success, etc. You really want to know what truly makes your soul happy? Read on…
 
I grew up with 10 aunts and uncles from my dad’s side and I truly remember the happy Sunday gatherings at Grandma and Grandpa’s Ranch house. So being around big families was a beautiful thing for me.
 
4 years ago I was challenged by a Non-Denominational Christian of why I’m a Catholic. He attacked me hard and I didn’t know how to defend myself. Honestly, I didn’t know the fullness of my faith. I was on a hunt for seeking truth and not just checking off a box on Sundays. I joined RCIA, listened to Immaculate Heart Radio, Lived my Cursillo (De Colores!), became a Knight of Columbus and my heart was hungry for more. I learned that missing Mass on Sundays is a ‘Mortal Sin’… Additionally, practicing ANY FORM of contraception is a ‘Mortal Sin’.
 
For those that don’t know what a Mortal Sin is: “A mortal sin, in Catholic theology, is a gravely sinful act, which leads to damnation if a person does not repent of the sin before death. A sin is considered to be “mortal” when its quality is such that it leads to a separation of that person from God’s saving grace.” Even though I confessed this deepest regret, I made a promise to God that I will reverse it since I made that decision when I thought I was in control and playing Him – God..
 
About a year and a half ago, a new Parish opened up in town that practices “The Traditional Mass.” Which means that anything after the 1960s (Vatican 2) isn’t practice. The music, the people, the Eucharist is all practiced as it should, in reverence. Therefore, about 5 months ago we transferred completely to Holy Martyrs Catholic Church after making a decision as a Father that this will be the Parish that my boys get a solid foundation of their Catholic Faith from. As a former expert lukewarm Catholic – There’s a major difference. For those parents that “let their children choose thie faith life” I’m praying for you. Your children are a gift from God and not raising them under the best foundation is just wrong.
 
As I sat in The Holy Mass one day at Holy Martyrs, I saw several large families. The Holy Spirit literally tugged at my heart and said to me, “it is time”. Imagine an emotional feeling of love and compassion smack you upside the head. Tears of love came soon after…
 
I reached out to several Catholic brothers about reversing my vasectomy but very few knew anyone that’s gone through it..
 
Until I spoke to my friend Wes, who led me to a doctor in California who is Catholic. The doctor stated that even if he wanted to charge me $500, the clinic fees alone are $5000. Therefore, I reached out to Wes again asking if he knew someone else a bit more affordable, and he said yes. There is a gentleman by the name of Greg Alexander who actually went through the same situation. He lives in Texas and he will be able to help. So Greg listened to my story and we spoke for about an hour. He pointed me to the Catholic Doctor that did the reversal for him. Greg has a ministry with his wife called The Alexander House that covers this topic and more about marriage life. Greg, my brother – I love you sir, keep fighting the good fight.
 
I booked the appointment on July 1st, 2019 in Texas and just had my surgery 19 days ago from writing this post. What helped me through the procedure was doing a Rosary and I was completely relaxed. I would like to give a big shoutout to Dr. Roeder Loddie F Jr MD from Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal, 189 E. Austin Street, Ste. 101, New Braunfels, Tx 78130 – 830-629-0180 – His heart is in the right place. They prayed with me before the surgery and I knew I was in the right place.
 
I am very open about this private topic because I believe that more men and woman have to hear it from someone who was chasing the wrong “things” in life. I see big families as a completeness of God’s divine LOVE if he wills it. I’m not sure where we got off on hating big families but my only guess can be the attack on the woman’s body in the 1960s (Margret Sanger, Planned Parent Hood, The rise of Liberal Feminism, etc.) and the idea to destroy Masculinity in Men. We can never be equal when it comes to God’s divine creation because each woman and man have a special trait that cannot be duplicated. I know for a fact my wife has more patience than I do when it comes to being the nurturer of the family. I cannot be that person but I am definitely the Man of the family and put my foot down to lift my boys up (and hopefully future children) to become the best they can be under God.
 
Through this journey, I have been called to be Pro-Life. It’s difficult to be Pro-Life if you’re not open to life… Make sense?
 
Even if God doesn’t will us new life, I have committed myself to him to be put back together the way he created me. Bucketlist checked Lord.
 
Since the procedure, my relationship with my wife has become much more stronger and loving. I’ve been less “Pissed Off.” Working together in peace. Financially, God has opened up new doors for us. As it turns out, doing the right thing does work out. We encourage all of you to follow the path that is right under God and not follow society’s pressure.
 
May this story inspire you and change your heart as it did mine. God Love You. In the name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit… Amen.
 
Feel free to reach out to me in private. I’m open ears.
 
Share this Post if You Know Anyone that has struggled through the same emotions.
 
My Heart is Complete.

What’s The Big Deal About Water From Tlacote Mexico? Active Hydrogen, of Course!

It is reported that Magic Johnson traveled to Tlacote, Mexico for water for medicinal purposes and later had it shipped directly to him in the U.S.  Fortunately for Magic he discovered Kangen Water and is now able to produce his own FRESH active hydrogen water in the comfort of his own home.

Magic Johnson took a proactive and holistic approach to his AIDS problem.  Whatever he’s been doing, it’s obviously worked well for him.   Over 20 years since his AIDS diagnosis and still going strong!  Go Magic!  Go Kangen!

Over 40 years ago a group of Japanese scientist set out to study “miracle waters” from around the world (including Tlacote, Mexico).   They found that the properties of these waters CAN be scientifically engineered so they began producing active hydrogen, restructured water and installed these powerful water ionizers in their hospitals in Japan.  Today, these medical grade devices are available for home use and the health benefits of those drinking Kangen water are nothing short of “miraculous”.

I’ll bet you couldn’t pry Kangen water away from Magic Johnson, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Jillian Michael’s, Martha Stewart, or anybody else fortunate enough to be drinking this water.   Nothing would make me give mine up!

What about you?  Will you travel to Tlacote, Mexico or will you opt for an endless supply of active hydrogen, miracle water in your own home?  That should be a no-brainer for you.  It was for me when I saw what the water did over 10 years ago to my son Adam when he was dealing with a health issue. I’ll be happy to share the story offline during a phone call… just ask!

CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD LOOKS AT WATER…

ONE DROP AT A TIME!

The Balance of Life in an Online Business

It truly takes an out of the box thinker to be able do what I have done. My journey will be briefly summed up below and I hope it inspires someone out there chasing that all mighty dollar to riches.

When I was in college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo studying for my Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering, I knew that soon after graduation, I’d have to start living a life of joining the working class American. If you have heard my story before, you would have known that after working 4 summer internships with Hewlett-Packard (Mountain View, CA and San Diego, CA)  and one of those internships over at Xerox in Los Angeles I was left with a cancelled job offer upon graduation. It was not fun and dating my wife Xochitl at the time, my dreams crumbled. It wasn’t easy finding work without the proper connections and building those trusting relationships.

So I went rogue. I dove into the world of Network Marketing in 2001 to truly learn real world experiences of being rejected in sales and understanding how to build myself up for objections. For those that can build a genuine attitude in the industry of network marketing, you can absolutely succeed. I took a lot of education in network marketing and brought it to all the jobs and businesses I built over the years.

There is one misleading portion that should be clear when you run any business. If you don’t build a passive income business, the business will run you. We see it with people who own restaurants where the business doesn’t grow outside of the family business. It won’t ever scale and unless you’re willing to let go of control, it won’t scale out of your hands. What exactly do I mean? You’re running a business like a job. Yep like a job! The moment you stop showing up, the business stops generating money / processing orders. Now don’t get me wrong, it takes a very special recruiter to find someone to treat your business like theirs. A very special person. We are living in a push button society where folks just don’t hustle like they use to.

After not having much success in several passive businesses, I knew what I had was I was highly motivated. In 2009, I went heavy into learning how to market on the internet without sounding like a robot. How to essentially be a magnet where people want to join you instead of you chasing them. This concept known as Attraction Marketing absolutely changed the game for me. In 2010, I was able to link up with some top online marketers who had lists bigger than mine and people that trusted them. We did what’s known as Junior Venturing (JVed) to be able to sell and scale up a course I developed to help folks get traffic to their website. After generating over $35,000 in commissions on this product I knew there was a need for education. Being super techy, I found my niche of helping the average Joe.

In 2011, after applying the strategies to my Network Marketing companies I was involved in, my wife Xochitl was looking for something to do online. So I found Drop-shipping to be a great place to start. I moved into teaching her how to drop-ship but at the same time I saw value in teaching those how to go sell items they would enjoy online. At first I gave the training to my list for free for them joining me in a network marketing company and then eventually turned the system to what it is known today as EliteDropShippers.com  The concept helped so many people that we trained just shy of 800 people. The video modules are broken down from new members to more advanced members.  Additionally, some folks I trained on how to build their own branded store outside of dropshipping from eBay / Amazon so that they can keep the 12%+ commissions that these sites were taking from them.

In 2015, I got a call that forever changed my life. It was in a way of walking closer to my faith life and I answered the Lord’s call to move into a different direction of having passion to help build my wife on her next business to allow her to still work from home and be with the kids. It had to be this way as we have been home schooling them. We launched an ecommerce store and that store has kept us busy since then. The nice thing is that it’s a physical product niche so we’re not just sitting in our chairs all day on the computer. This business has been alive and well still growing in love. She found something that she enjoys doing and I support her in that. Needless to say, she triples what she use to bring home as a first grade teacher in California. Amazing right? We definitely need to take care of our teachers more.

Now in 2019 – I find myself reinventing myself of what is working now in marketing. The key thing is staying plugged in. It is said that content marketing daily will produce you traffic within 48 hours. Therefore, learn to enjoy and blog your heart out. I actually enjoy writing topics like these because of my personal experience. Ultimately, you will always do better on things you can get excited about.

Finally, there is nothing wrong with having a job. I see a lot of marketers out there knocking on jobs, but if it wasn’t for our jobs in the past, we wouldn’t have been able to fund our next business venture without getting into heavy debt. I think if you invest $1000 and you are getting a return in your investment within 3 months or less, re-evaluate your time/process and either continue investing or move away from what you’re currently investing your time in.

Side note: By no means am I a professional writer, so forgive me, I do my best to bring quality content to my readers. Stay strong in your Plan A… Plan B… or C. Commitment is key. Consider spending 1…2 hours a day on your business part-time connecting with customers who have interest.

To your success,

Cesar Ramirez

Black Friday Nightmare? How to give thanks without extra plastic…

Hello friend,
Thanks for being a loyal email subscriber. I appreciate hearing from each and everyone of you.
Let me know how life has treated you. The good and the bad as that is what makes you an experienced person.
If there’s an area of Internet Marketing that you’re looking to grow in, I am currently building a training center to help the new and the old on how to scale up their WordPress Blog, E-Commerce Store (Woocommerce), and receiving traffic to it to build a long term business…

Thanksgiving Dinner to come tomorrow… Black Friday is upon us.

Is it just me or are you also tired?

Things are either not as good as you planned so you are working harder to get there or they are better than you planned and you’re afraid of going backwards…soooo you work even harder.

Ugh.

Do we really work this hard, this long, this distractedly, this relentlessly for silicon and plastic that we’ll discard in 12 months?

And then give up what’s supposed to be our holiday down time to camp out, stand in line, and literally fight with other tired human beings to save a few bucks on those plastic and silicon gizmos?

*NOTE: If you’re still making payments on a credit card for a gizmo you bought and have since thrown, given, or stored away only to be thrown away later, please stay home Friday…and don’t shop online, either. You’ve missed the point.

Why do we let spending time with family – the ones we supposedly “do all of this for” – stress us out?

If you don’t know how to bake a turkey, go take a cooking class or watch more YouTube videos…or serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and pair it with a nice chardonnay or maybe even a bold Merlot to counteract the sweetness in the jelly and relax.

You think I’m kidding…don’t kid yourself about my not kidding.

Life’s too short to take seriously, and none of us are getting out alive.

So bust out the Peter Pan and the Two Buck Chuck, throw on some sweat pants or pajamas or get all gussied up if that brings a smile to your face, then relax and give thanks.

Start today and go all the way through to the New Year.

Then get REALLY crazy and do it throughout next year.

If anyone asks, tell them you have a note from your internet marketing sales coach that you can relax over the next 5+ weeks because you’re not going to be George Jetson on the treadmill any longer.

Now go relax.

-Cesar

Goodbye Mark Hoverson…

Hello Friends,

It’s been a minute. I know. Bare with me I’m sorry to have to be a stranger online. Frankly my wife and I have been slammed with our e-commerce business and homeschooling the boys. Additionally, I’ve been through a lot in the last 3 years. We’ll get back to me in a follow up email later.

In 2010, I met a dear friend, Mark Hoverson at a Jeffery Combs event — More Heart Than Talent. I felt an instant connection with Mark Hoverson. We were never in a company together but he was always a friend and a mentor to me online and off.

Mark and me in 2011 at a Las Vegas Marketing Event

I can text or call him to ask for business advice and as I attended many of his webinars, I noticed something awesome that nobody was doing. He was drawing on the screen like a 5 year old. I sat there and was thinking to myself, why is this guy drawing? Later on he shared with me the book (The Back of The Napkin by Dan Roam) that made him draw and the purpose of that drawing lead to my next point. He was always giving a lot of himself. Shared so much value that I felt like I owed him at least this….

In October of 2017, because I had Mark Hoverson on my cell phone saved, he showed up on my Snapchat Feed. I was in shocked on how skinny he had gotten. I had no idea he had a very unique cancer. He was given 4-6 weeks to live and ended up living an additional 4 years.

Support his family here: http://cesarramirez.com/markhoversonGoFundMe

Mark’s heart was unique. He loved the industry of helping people hit their maximum potential. His heart was in the right place and hundreds and thousands of people came across Mark Hoverson online one way or another.

I’m reaching out to you in the kindness of supporting his family he left behind on their medical bills. He left a very unique video that I haven’t seen anyone with cancer leave behind. He left you and me a message. That message can be found on his GoFundMe page (http://cesarramirez.com/markhoversonGoFundMe).

When I spoke to Mark last, he and I had an awesome phone conversation. He was more concerned about my well being of achieving greatness than he was discussing his cancer. As a matter of fact he called it his “little sickness.” In my opinion he lived a fullness of life with his business and family.
I’ll miss you Mark. My heart aches but know you’re a lover of Jesus Christ and you’re in a place of no suffering.
It’s good to be writing again old friend, I hope you haven’t given up on me quite yet my friend…

Chat soon,

Cesar Ramirez

P.S. Please support The Hoverson family. Mark Hoverson? was a dear friend I met back in 2010 in Dallas, Texas at a business networking event. He left behind his beautiful wife and 4 children. Cancer bills as you can image are astronomical. Thank you and any little bit helps to get closer to their goal! Support his family here: http://cesarramirez.com/markhoversonGoFundMe
