Saying Goodbye To PayPal!

After years using PayPal with many different platforms (JVZoo, Warrior+, Zaxxa, RAP, PayDotCom, etc) I’m moving away from using them as a payment processor.

I will still be using JVZoo and Warrior+ as my selling platforms, but I’ll be processing through a merchant account now.

That’s not going to change many things for you. You’ll still access your downloads from me the way you always have through the platform you purchase from me, but you’ll just not be able to use PayPal to pay me any longer.

If you have a PayPal debit card you will be, but from here on out I’ll be using a merchant account to process my payments.


Simply because using PayPal has become a risk.

Many people are having their PayPal accounts shut-down and no one knows a REAL reason. PayPal is the “money-God” and can do whatever they want. It’s all in their TOS.

At this moment I still DO have a PayPal account, I’m just being proactive and moving away from them on MY terms. 🙂

I started talking about this a few months ago on Facebook and what I was doing to make these changes.

If you’re not a Facebook friend, I’m currently at my 5000 friend limit, but you can follow on Facebook at

I’ve made TWO posts about my move away from PayPal and they are below…

Post 1:

Post 2:

I will be showing my tribe how to do the same thing if they choose to do so.

The first thing you need to do is if you’re an affiliate is get everything to where you’re being paid by check or direct deposit. I’ve already begun that process and the main networks I use to get my affiliate links (JVZoo and Warrior+) was a pretty simple process.

If you’re a vendor (a product seller) it’s a little bit more tricky. I’ve ALMOST got the process done on JVZoo, and the process has been completed for W+. It’s honestly easier with Warrior+, but I prefer to sell on JVZoo because I personally know the people behind it and the service there has been amazing.

I’ll keep you guys up to date on everything once I have it all in order. I’ll be doing a video showing the process for each of the main networks I work with (JVZoo and Warrior+), and also my journey on to a new network in the coming months.

But as I said… The important thing to know is not much will change on your end. I’m just being smart and proactive and setting up multiple ways to take payments online as EVERY business should do.

If you have any questions and want to talk about this make sure you’re in the Team Tomey Facebook group where we talk about these kinds of things. 🙂

Talk soon!

2019 Almost Got Me!

Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted here on the Liz Tomey blog. For the last few years I haven’t known what I’ve wanted to do with this blog and it’s just become a place for updates every few months. I’ve got a good idea what I want to do with it now. It’s basically going to become an “umbrella” for ALL of my brands. You’ll be able to see what’s going on with all of my brands from one spot. 🙂

The last part of 2018 I was completely focused on building the brand while phasing out everything else in my business where I’m teaching about online business development and marketing. It’s still my #1 thing, but there are also other things I’d like to teach you outside of online business. Things that will help you live a healthy and happy life too. It’s not all just about getting wealthy. It’s our biggest priority, but it’s not EVERYTHING.

So right before Christmas I got side tracked bad with the direction I wanted to go beyond the brand which put me “down the rabbit hole” and then a list of very unfortunate events happened that pushed me further and further down the hole until I was completely lost.

The first part of 2019 has been devastating to say the least…

Over the last several weeks of my life I’ve been through more changes and had more things laid on top of me than I could bare. I needed to step back and take a few weeks just to process the things that have happened and are currently happening to me. I can’t and wont go into detail because these things are way too personal and traumatic at this point and I just can’t be as publicly open about it as I want to do be. I will in time because there are a lot of lessons in what is happening, but for now I ask that you be patient with me as I return back to “the land of the living” and get back to life.

My first order of business is getting caught up on emails, help desk messages, and Facebook messenger messages.

*** Please note that if you’re trying to contact me through Facebook messenger it could be weeks before you hear from me. I get way too many messages there to ever be able to keep up. The helpdesk at is always the best way to contact me.

The next order of business will be getting with my Resellers Passive Profits Workshop attendees and getting that workshop all wrapped up. I dropped the ball there, but will be finishing that up and getting everyone back on track.

And finally I will be stripping my business down again and we will only be talking about ways to make passive income and ways to market your passive income streams. Moving forward that is what I will be specializing in helping you in because I truly believe creating passive income streams is the best way to get wealthy and still be able to enjoy your life.

If you go to you’ll see I’ve removed just about everything from my product line. I’ll be adding the passive income workshops I’ve done there, but for right now I’ve removed just about everything else.

So let’s get back to life…

I so appreciate everyone who has reached out to check on me. I’m making it fine and will bounce back. The great thing about my life is that I’m finally to a point where I have developed the life skills needed to bounce back from even the darkest things that happen to us. Stuff like this used to take me months and months to recover from. Now in just a few weeks I’m strong enough to keep moving forward. I’ll let that be my “win” for now.

I’ve got a lot of exciting stuff planned for 2019 for all of us, so stay tuned because it’s only going to get better from here.

Thanks for always being on my side. Much love to you! <3 <3 <3

You’re Going To Lose Your Mind!

Wow! What a crazy few weeks it’s been. Life hit me at 1000 mph and I need to give everyone a massive update, so everyone knows I’m ok and I am in fact alive. 🙂

As many of you know I moved to Venice, FL about 2-3 years ago. It had been a dream of mine since I was 5 years old. My mom and I (before she passed away) always said we’d move as soon as she could retire. Unfortunately she never made it to retirement so me moving there was achieving a goal for BOTH of us. 🙂

It was a huge deal and it was like me starting my life over after my divorce and losing my mom. I needed the move so bad after all of that!

If you’re my Facebook friend you’ve seen hundreds of pictures of the beach there, the AMAZIng sunsets, me working at th beach, etc. It was evident I had found my paradise.

My amazing son was supposed to move with me and decided he wanted to wait for his 9th grade year to move with me. Then he decided he wanted to wait another year.

Well long story short he decided he didn’t want to move to FL… AT ALL!

The traveling back and forth to see him all the time got too much for me and him both and he finally told me he didn’t want to move to FL and wanted me to move back to Chattanooga, TN.

I don’t know how many of you are parents, but when it comes to breaking your heart or your child’s heart you always choose YOUR heart.

And that’s what I did…

I completely and totally broke my own heart, packed up everything, left a 2 year relationship, and moved back to Chattanooga, TN. My good ol’ hometown that I love to hate.

I do love this place, but I do feel like my dream of living happily ever after in FL was ripped from me. Yes of course in just a few years when he goes to college I can move back and that’s truly my only sanity in all of this. 🙂

So it took me a few weeks to adjust and get into the groove of things. I took a small step back from business so I could breath.

I’ve spent a lot of time with my kid of course, but also a lot of time on my bike, up in the mountains doing some meditation, and in River Park here which is where my mom worked for 25+ years. She did all the landscaping there so I can go and look at all the trees, plants, and flowers she planted and feel close to her. It’s a magical place.

I’ve done all the things I needed to do to heal and come back stronger than ever as I start yet another chapter of my life.

I appreciate your patience and understanding over the last few weeks. I’m back and ready to kick butt again, and all of you truly make my life amazing. I can’t thank you enough.

So I’ve shared this little story not to only update you, but to show you I’m human too.

You are at some point going to lose your mind in life! Probably repeatedly! 🙂

Things go crazy in life even when you’ve got a great life and a great business. You just need “tools” to help you get through it. My tools are my son, my bike, and nature. Find the “tools” that help you to cope and there’s nothing you can’t get through. You must keep pressing on. 🙂

Okay so it’s official… I’m back in Chattanooga, TN and I’m loving life once again!

I look forward to continuing on our path to the success you WANT

Saying Goodbye To Backpack Business Lifestyle

Today is the first day of a new journey I’ve begun. I’m completely changing my business to help my readers create multiple streams of passive income. 🙂

Exciting right?

Well the exciting part is getting to $10,000 a month in passive income, is our FIRST goal!

Now THAT is exciting…

On this journey I’ll be getting rid of most of my brands and re-doing many of my products and coaching programs so that they only teach passive income methods and strategies.

For instance… I’m known in the industry as the “Queen of PLR“. I WILL still be doing PLR, but I’ll be getting rid of my brand AND I’ll also be teaching how to create and sell your own PLR in a passive way.

That’s down the road a bit though…

The first brand I will be getting rid of is the Backpack Business Lifestyle Brand. Within this brand I have several coaching programs (I’ll still be supporting those), products, a Facebook group, and a blog.

I will be deleting the Facebook group for this brand, closing down the blog (I’ll take the best posts from this blog that are related to passive income and put them on my blog), and re-doing all the products and coaching programs so they align with passive-income streams.

This was a hard decision to make because the building of this brand came at the biggest turning point of my life…

I went from being a wife of MANY years with a house full of kids to a divorced “girl child” (at the age of 34) who had never once been on her own in life.

To say I turned my life upside down is like the understatement of the year, but it was hands down the best thing that EVER happened to me.

I finally found out EXACTLY who I am, what I love, and most importantly I learned to LIVE!

Going through all of that though was soul shattering.

I turned to my work and began building the Backpack Business Lifestyle brand. My missions was (still is) to get healthy, happy, and wealthy and show other people how to do the same thing.

Getting my mind off my life with working on this was great, but I needed something more.

That’s when I randomly just picked something to do OUTSIDE of working to help me get healthy. I chose bike riding!

I had no idea at the time that with that decision would come the ultimate life therapy!

I researched forever to find the perfect bike, and found it. Of course it had to be purple because I have this weird thing about all of my “stuff” being purple. Blame it on my OCD. *lol*

I started out slow. I’d ride 3-4 miles, but within a few weeks I found myself literally craving longer bike rides.

I felt great after them and within a month saw HUGE health improvements.

The longer my rides, the more my mind would wander and I would think about life. The things I had done wrong and how with this “new life” of mine, what I could do differently.

Let me tell you…Self analyzing” daily for 2-3 hours at a time 4-5 days a week is absolutely brutal. I’ve shed so many tears and had so many thoughts on my bike that if I even tried to explain you’d think I was a complete lunatic. 🙂

One day while riding, Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” started playing on Pandora and I thought to myself that’s what my bike was. My personal little crazy train, and from that day forward my bike became “Rails”.

I’ve put over 4,000 miles on Rails since the day I got “him“. 4000 miles of “soul sweat“, business ideas, tears, and more. If it hadn’t of been for this obsession the Backpack Business Lifestyle brand probably would have never been “born” and I would have missed out on so much.

The brand helped shape me into who I am as a person and helped MANY people start their own life changing online businesses.

Today as I rode I thought about the new brand I’m building and got really excited because essentially we’re doing the same thing. We’re just giving ourselves so much more time to enjoy that money we will be making.

It’s been a great “ride” guys… Now it’s time to “up our game” and take on this new journey to reclaim our time, enjoy our lives, and make a ton of money while doing it all!

How To Add Videos To Your Websites

I see a lot of people having issues with how to add videos to their websites. Of course you can upload them to YouTube and just copy and past the code on your site, but if you don’t want them listed on YouTube and have YouTube’s branding on your video it can be quite a task.

So I created this video to show you exactly how to do it and the cheap tool I use to make it all look great! Watch the short tutorial below and be sure to leave your comments, feedback, and/or questions in the comments section below…

What’s Going On And What’s Coming?

I just wanted to give a quick update on what’s going to be happening for the rest of this year…

As you may know I run three different online businesses to help you… is all about helping you find your perfect online business model and getting it up and going so you can be creating the lifestyle you WANT! is all about teaching you how to market your online business using Internet marketing tactics and strategies. This is for those of you who already have a business and want to know how to get more leads, more customers, make more money with it, etc. is all about providing you with PLR content and showing you how to use it in your online business to save time and/or make more-money!

I also have two weekly webinars that I do live each week!

The Backpack Business Lifestyle Webinar is a free webinar for anyone who currently does not have an online business. You can attend these webinars each week, learn about different online business models and get help with the online business model you’re working on!

You can register at no-cost at

The other webinar I do is for my Team Tomey Inner Circle Coaching Club members. You get free access to this if you’ve ever bought anything from me. We have a Facebook group where you can get the webinar details and be part of our mastermind group there. Please use the help desk to get information on getting access to that. Just provide them with your PayPal email address so they can verify you’re a customer, and they will give you the information that you need.

Now the best way to get everything you ever wanted from me is to become a Backstage With Liz client. I only open this up 2-3 times a year and only let 10 people in at a time. You get so much with this, but most importantly two things…

1. Your very own online business that I setup for you and teach you to run!

2. Every product, service, content, etc I release for-free! The only exception is done for you services because I have to pay people to do those for you, but I will always give those to you at my cost.

It’s a no brainer of a deal because you can pay 1 price get a complete online business, 1 on 1 phone calls with me, all of my products for-free, and so much more!

I will be opening this again tomorrow at 9am Eastern. There will only be 10 spots, so you’re going to have to act quick!

And just an FYI… I have two coaching programs that will be coming out just this year alone that you’ll get free-access to and the regular price of JUST those two things (not counting everything else I’ll be releasing) is 4 times as much as what it will cost you to get into Backstage With Liz, so it truly is one heck of a deal.

You can take a sneak peek at the sales letter now (no one can get in until tomorrow at 9am) by going to

You’ve now been updated. 🙂 If there’s anything I can do to help you with anything please let me know. You can use my support desk and if they can’t help you they will route you to me!

Talk soon!

The Aftermath Of Irma – I’m Still Here!

So 7 days after Irma beat the crap out of Florida, I’m officially back to work. I’m sitting out on the beach here looking at the blue water and watching the manatee and dolphin play. Glad to see those guys back. 🙂

But there are still many around me without power (I got mine back on Day 6) and some even further south of me without homes.

South of me in Naples, FL they’re really hurting, the Keys got destroyed, and several little tiny islands south east of me wont recover for a year or more.  I’m truly blessed!

But I’m seriously far behind in work…

Before Irma hit I had a client in town for several days, then spent a few days getting ready for Irma, and then Irma hit, and then now power and the recovery process from it all has been crazy.

I’d like to thank every single person who sent emails in, text messages, Facebook messages, etc checking on me. I’m alive and I’m still here. I’m just really far behind so bear with me as I get caught up.

There are only two ways to get in touch with me… Via email (if you’re a coaching client) and my support desk. My support desk guy is in Florida too, so he’s also way behind.

If you have an email into me or my support desk we’re working hard to get to you!

Again thanks for all the amazing messages during this time. I love my people dearly. I know this is a business I run, but I’m also personally attached to my people, and all the kind messages and offers of help during this time have truly made me thankful for each and every single one of you.

Much love!
