Years later I found this in the shows on the history channel. My favorite is Ancient Aliens with the idea being that aliens have been visiting earth for a long time and they never stopped. In fact, according to our DNA, we very likely are not from this planet at all. We are the aliens.
The best evidence I have seen of this is is what happens with our body's circadian rhythm in space. Our circadian rhythm on earth is synced up with a 24 hour earth day where our bodily functions such as sleep become aligned with the hours in each day available to us on this planet. What happens in space? Human bodies in space go out of sync with an earth day circadian rhythm and they go in sync with a 24 hour and 40 minute day. This small fact might seem insignificant until you learn that a day on Mars is the exact same length. Why would our bodies as soon as they leave earth sync up to a day on Mars? Why does my skin act like it is from a place where the sun does not shine as bright? If this body was from this planet, there is no way it would sunburn so easily. On Mars, the sunlight is much less intense. Why is there evidence on Mars that some type of superweapon was used on the surface of the planet? Why do crop circles appear all over the planet with consistency over hundreds if not thousands of years? They all cannot be hoaxes. The same with UFO sightings. With hundreds of thousands of UFO sightings around the planet, including many sightings from trustworthy and experienced sources such as airline pilots and law enforcement, every single one cannot be wrong.
If hundreds of years ago when the main stream theory was that the world was flat, it just took one sailor going around the world to provide proof the world was in fact round. Our place in the universe has been lost for a long time and we are just getting ready to get it back! We are nearly ready to be restored to our rightful place in the universe with the knowledge that we have never been alone and we are part of something bigger the way an ant hill is part of a forest, continent, and solar system. The key is you have to discover this for yourself the way I have and so does every other person on this planet.
Would you join me in discovering this for yourself today by reading this book? Thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoy the book!
First, we begin by explaining the purpose of this book and share it in a way that is authentic, raw, and minimally edited for comprehension. Next, we get into a bad workplace romance at USCPD with the dispatcher where the fallout produces the end of Officer Banfield. Then, we go back to the beginning from choosing criminal justice as a major in college through getting the first job in juvenile corrections at DJJ to the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy (SCCJA) to the first policing job as a state law enforcement officer transporting mental health patients at SC DMH to the final assignment as a campus patrolman at USC in Columbia. Finally, we conclude with a look at life after Officer Banfield in graduate school for criminology at USF Tampa and recovery in AA strongly motivated by the stories we hear in Officer Banfield.. The chapters are named:
1: Welcome to Officer Banfield
3: The dispatcher
4: Fine, I'll quit!
6: DJJ training
7: DJJ gauntlet
8: DJJ a new way
9: Police academy
12: FTO at USCPD
14: All out
You might love this book if you have dreams of a career in the criminal justice system or watch TV shows like Cops or CSI, or are just looking to laugh, cry, recover, and experience a reality different from what you see on a daily basis.
For those interested in recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, this book serves as part of a fifth step where "We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs" as well as a ninth step "Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others" and the twelfth step where "we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs."
Will you please buy Officer Banfield today because you will love and be amazed by the stories you hear inside?

I hope sharing my story will be a miracle in your life as all the help others have provided has produced a miracle in my life. I have over two years of freedom from porn addiction and over two years of having the best and healthiest sex that I've ever known in my life. I want that for you, no matter how old you are or no matter what you've been through in life, no matter what you look like or no matter what kind of love in your life you want.
Would you start this with me? Would you take a leap of faith with me and read this book to see what you can learn from it? Thank you so much for getting started, and I'm honored to have the chance to continue this journey of life here today!
Ten months ago as a Twitch affiliate you made your first $100 in one month and you were certain that continuing to try would yield enough to go full time within a year. The next month you earned $200 and by six months in you made your first $1000 in a month. With a strong community established including hundreds of subscribers and moderators, you hit the home page one day and earned $1000 in a single day from bits and new subscribers while coincidentally the most amazing moments so far on your stream happened.
Three months ago you were feeling a little unmotivated as growth continued steadily but the success of the homepage stream had not come back again. At over $3000 a month from hundreds of subscribers and regular donators, you are earning enough money to not need another job but still not enough to make significant upgrades and hire some help for the stream. At the current rate of growth, you are wondering if you have hit the top of your niche.
Now today, a year after reading this book for the first time, you are up to around $5,000 a month on Twitch and good things are happening faster than you can keep up with. Viewers are always wanting things from you and the biggest challenge is how to mange everything. Who gets to be a mod? Which sponsors to accept? How to keep interacting with viewers on stream? The chat now goes so fast interactions are harder with individual viewers. You have made partner and are wondering how much higher is possible and whether building a bigger audience is even desirable. Is there a next level and do you want to reach it?
Will you please read this book today because this is the first step to converting this imagination into reality for mastering live streaming on Twitch with twitch.tv?
Since I started teaching full time online in 2014 with my own business, I have earned $650,000+ teaching on Udemy, $100,000+ teaching with Stackskills.com, $100,000+ selling courses on my own website, $30,000+ on Skillshare, and $100,000+ from related income sources, such as creating audio books for Audible, Kindle books for Amazon, movies for Amazon Prime with Amazon Video Direct, showing ads on YouTube videos previewing online courses, coaching students, consulting, etc. While Udemy is the single largest source of income so far, I am currently banned from teaching on Udemy and I intend to earn the most from hosting my own courses on the University of Jerry Banfield with Thinkific where I have already earned $44,000 in the first year after switching from self-hosting courses with Teachable where I earned $100,000+ in the previous two years.
I've made this because you have the exact same potential especially when you learn from my experience instead of trying to figure it all out yourself. Finding the equipment, finding the websites to teach on, and organizing all of this into a higher level mindset were so difficult for me. I am grateful for every instructor, student, and friend that helped make it easier for me which is what I intend to provide for you here.
After four years of crazy challenges and countless failures, I have a video production setup that might be the best in the world for creating my own high quality video courses with the least resistance. A five hour long video course used to take me twenty to forty hours to film when I started and often came out with low quality audio and video. Today a five hour long video course takes me approximately ten total hours of time starting from an idea to having everything uploaded and the course published. I hope that the mindset I share in this book plus the practical tools, such as what microphone to buy, will make it way easier for you to get started and scale a teaching business online than it was for me.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to see my family every day for many more hours as a result of teaching video courses instead of being away working in an office for someone else. I am imagining you using the information in this book to help create the life of your dreams which might include a self-sustaining business online that monetizes primarily by teaching video courses. Our world has a huge hunger for learning online that we can help satisfy each day to empower more self-supporting human beings freed from doing work without love and joy.
Will you please buy the book now because I am imagining how much you will love it and be inspired by reading it?
When reading books like this, I have often been frustrated with authors editing out what I thought were the most interesting parts such as suicide attempts mentioned without any details or shameful habits embedded in code phrases such as seeking lower companionship without explaining further. Today I am grateful because this motivated me to go all in with a complete fifth step disclosed with you in this book which is equivalent to a twelve hour speaker meeting full of exactly what I remember.
To begin, I share my life story such as where I grew up and how I live today. Next, I explore my first addiction honestly in sex and porn. This is an intimate journey inside my body shame and problems with sexuality. Given that I started this journey as a child and reference experiences as far back as three years old, I think it is important I be open to sharing this with anyone that needs it regardless of age. My sex problems made me ripe for alcoholism which I then explore in detail including what it was like, what happened, and what life is like now. I go to Alcoholics Anonymous every day which has saved my life and given me the courage to publish this. While drinking, I also got into gambling which felt like the most powerful addiction I ever experienced. Gambling exaggerated my money issues leaving me nearly bankrupt and ready for the end.
After experiencing the craziest parts of my life, will you continue learning about the more average addictions and challenges I experience which I think nearly everyone can relate to in some way? Hear my story of video gaming addiction from beginning to end including starting my business to help with it in the middle. Experience how I consistently used food to change how I felt and unconscious eating behavior with a 14-year weight gain and loss journey. Finish with an emotional roller coaster with depression, anxiety, fear, panic attacks, frustration, annoyance, and anger transitioning into a life of peace, joy, and freedom today.
Finally, hear about a day and life lived in recovery now with an in-depth view of what I do one day at a time to be free of the forces that guided my life in misery which today help me stay connected with my higher power.
Thank you for learning about Speaker Meeting 2017 and I hope you love it!
When you want to make your first $1 or $100 working online, I hope this book will be inspiration for you to get concrete examples of strategies you can test yourself starting today to produce income for you online. In 2004 when I tried to learn to work online, I could not find any honest information about what worked and what did not. Use this book to get a comprehensive list of what has worked for me to make at least $1 online in 100 different ways and look deeper into how I combined all of these methods to produce over a million dollars.
As you build your career freelancing online, you might enjoy adding new strategies to your business and feeling comforted in your failures by knowing that I have had more failures than successes. Get a real look in this book at how many times I have messed things up online from getting my Google AdWords account suspended to Udemy banning me and so many more stories where I did my best only to end up with nothing to show for it except experience which now gives me the power to do even better today.
To take your business to the next level, you might be inspired by the relentless passion I have for helping you achieve your goals today that is translated through this book to you in the stories I tell. You might see a new opportunity based on what I have done that adds a valuable new way for you to grow your business and enjoy it more. Even more likely, you might be motivated to cut out a lot of what you do today that you do not enjoy in an effort to isolate exactly what you love to do and to it best more often. Hearing the laundry list I provide of ways to make money online as an entrepreneur in this book might show you the power of not trying to use every means of making money as a means to an end but to focus on what brings the most value to the customer at the least cost.
Thank you very much for reading this and I hope you enjoy the book!
By 2012, I started managing Google AdWords for clients based on my experience failing to do my own ads successfully. Amazingly, client ads were often easier to do than my own and inspired me to try a new approach to AdWords using YouTube advertising also known as Google AdWords for video. YouTube now is my biggest asset online thanks to YouTube advertising and continues to help me build deeper relationships with followers and customers that just watched one video.
Four years after I got my first AdWords account suspended, I gained enough courage to try again on advertising my online courses with a new website and new business model. From the beginning, I was getting sales for $20 in ad spend and eventually got down to sales consistently for $5 with display ads and $8 with search ads. When this was combined with the higher ranking on Udemy and the organic search traffic follow up from students sharing the courses, my work on Google AdWords became part of a multimillion dollar sales system selling courses online.
That sounded impressive right? Good because I love to try and impress everyone with how smart I am. Let's enjoy the flight up for a moment before back down to earth again. My Google AdWords advertising system was so good that if you were finding out about Udemy, you were sure to encounter my courses and soon my courses were a dominant presence on Udemy with me having as many as 170,000+ students in my courses. At one point my ad spend was nearly $1,000 per day with around 1,000 clicks to 10,000 per day from nearly every country in the world. I had an affiliate remarketing system setup that was just on the edge of the terms and conditions where if you searched for "Udemy" you would find my instructor course with no affiliate link and then I would show you ads to go back to Udemy with an affiliate link plus buy my courses for $9 using a free coupon that allowed me to work outside the pricing system then in place. With so many students in my courses, I could actually track affiliate conversions in Google AdWords and was continually consuming more of the entire Udemy student base into my courses.
In June 2016, Udemy sent me an email out of nowhere banning me from the website based on what felt like to me an excuse to breakup rather than an actual policy violation. I was so consumed with the rules that I knew was was allowed and at the same time was attempting to slide around the spirit of the rules for my benefit in every way technically available especially with Google AdWords.
With being banned from Udemy, my entire Google AdWords system collapsed immediately. With no more Udemy courses, all of the thousands of ads I made had to be edited. Those edited ads failed utterly to sell courses directly hosted through my website because the entire system worked together.
Now I am starting over again with Google AdWords as I try to teach for free online. This book is based on my "bestselling" Google AdWords course on Udemy which had thousands of students before it was banned.
Michel Gerard took hours of his time to transcribe this book into a format that I hope will show you how I setup my Udemy advertising system and help you get through your challenges with more grace than I did with Google AdWords.
Today that last part of my system that still works is YouTube remarketing ads which I am continuing to do at scale with my business.
