HI! I’M PILAR
What does Freedom Mean to YOU?
Countless thousands have fought for it and most have slaved away at jobs they dislike in the hope of achieving it some day.
My mission is to inspire and guide you to live a life on your own terms without the commitment of trading hours for dollars. What would life look like for you if that was the case?
Maybe you’re a mother with young children and you don’t want to miss these important first few years with them. Maybe you make a great income, but you’re tired of the same grind day in and day out. I can almost recite to you my every waking morning routine from sun up to sun down M-F.
It never changed!
Tell you the truth, I had just expected this to be my life because that’s what I was conditioned to do. My gut feeling is telling me that you’re here because you want out of the hamster wheel too.
Freedom is possible. I’m living proof. An Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) business is the avenue I chose to create this freedom in my life. I’m now an Amazon FBA Expert. I didn’t go looking for this business.
I was a loyal employee for 5 years, and yet I only had 2 weeks paid time off each year and made an average middle-class salary. Sound like someone you know? It doesn’t have to be that way. For once in your life, you need to give yourself permission to ‘Live Mas!’, as Taco Bell would say it.
It might seem confusing, it might even seem like you have to know “computer stuff”. You don’t have to know everything. You simply have to know enough of the important stuff to get going in the right direction.
A business that gives you freedom is worth its weight in gold. And the first step to grabbing this opportunity is to understand your role in the world. To know deep down that being free is your birth rite. When I finally decided to claim my freedom through Amazon FBA, it gave me the confidence to live life on my terms. My goal is to help guide you through the ever evolving world of Amazon FBA to claim your freedom.
So Why Should You Stick Around?
This is not your ordinary blog about learning to make a living with Amazon. I’m here to tell you a story about being truly fulfilled in life.
“You aren’t wealthy until you have something money CAN’T BUY” – Garth Brooks
This site is mainly about 5 Things:
Build an e-commerce business in and around Amazon, while their fulﬁllment team does all the heavy lifting for you.
Learn to leverage social media marketing to bring more trafﬁc and sales to you.
Empower yourself through professional development.
Design a lifestyle that will allow you freedom to do the things that matter most to you.
Learn to start living your dreams now. Life is meant to be enjoyed, not just lived.
Everything you see on this site comes from personal experience. I learned through the University of Trial and Error. Since I don’t claim to have all the answers, I make sure that I always surround myself with people that directly and indirectly become my mentors.

Life is more than just my work. In many ways, I’ve learned more about how to make a living on Amazon by learning about what other people like to do. Recently, I became friends with a wonderful person who makes a living doing Facebook Ads Management work for her clients. After that, I encountered Pinterest marketing experts. This site is meant to explore advanced marketing strategies for Amazon FBAsellers by using social media and related tools. I’m extremely passionate about learning and sharing these experiences in hopes of inspiring others.

I must say, it makes me feel real special to know you want to hear my story! Life has been one heck of a ride. It became even more exciting when I quit my nine-to-five job back in December of 2012. Now, I’m that person you see strolling into the coﬀee shop in their sweat pants and wondering why I’m not dressed for work. I don’t like to rush myself. I like to take a sip of my coﬀee, read the posters on the wall, people watch, and then stroll on back to my Brooklyn apartment. It’s diﬀerent how much my pace of life has changed since Amazon FBA came into my life. I’m a hard worker. Always have been…Always will be. Nothing new here. I can’t take all the credit though. My mom was this way, and she made darn sure my brother and I were as well! Mom noticed early on that I loved to do sales. I’m sure you all must have heard about me before, because I grew the biggest EMPIRE of a business back at the tender age of 7. Classmates would come looking for me just so they could buy the coolest temporary tattoos the school playground had even seen. I was a natural. My supplier was the corner store. I would buy the bazooka gum with the free tattoos inside, and flip the tattoos for sometimes upwards of triple my cost. Talk about learning the ropes of retail arbitrage at an early age! Yup, business was booming. Don’t ask me why no one bothered enough to catch on and do the same. I still don’t know the answer to that. Back then, shiny coins were my thing. These days, dead presidents on dollar bills are more my style.
My Bad Side
I have no website technical skills (I’m reading books on how to set up a WordPress site).
I’m always one of the last tech adopters (I never download apps, not even Yelp!).
I’m a bad speller.
I’m teaching myself to be more knowledgeable in social media and tech stuﬀ.
I’m open to failure because it means I’m closer to my next success story.
Posting on my website is intimidating to me.
The lights in my living room are lightly dimmed because I have no curtains.
I like avocado on my toast in the mornings. I can’t believe you’re still reading this list………
The bottom line here is if I can do it, then so canYOU!
Back to the Good Stuff
I’m a genuinely curious person, which means I take in everything around me. Heck, every time I step out I feel like I’m learning something new! It’s taken me some time to realize this, but if I don’t pay attention long enough to see an opportunity, then someone else will. Life gets noisy. There are so many distractions and just going with the flow suddenly becomes a daily ritual. That ritual becomes a daily chore. Before you know it, years have passed by and one’s desire to learn something new doesn’t sound as appealing anymore. In fact, it sounds downright dumb. Comfortable seems to feel better.
I wanted more.
More meant I had to pay attention longer, which I practice on a daily basis. This train of thought led me to see the opportunity that selling on Amazon FBA oﬀers to anyone willing to learn. Amazon has opened up the world of business to anyone that is willing to take the time to learn. I took the time to learn after work and on the weekends. In December of 2012 I took the leap that catapulted my business to the next level. I quit my job and paid attention full-time. The same opportunity is there for anyone who pays attention long enough to see it.
