Hey there, my name is Ellie Rezk, and I am a Jersey Shore-based blogger and the founder of Real Jersey Shore, a blog dedicated to helping and encouraging aspiring and emerging online entrepreneurs.

A Little About How I Got Here

In 2015, I launched Real Jersey Shore as a creative outlet to share stories behind people at the Jersey Shore doing what they are passionate about-- in business and in life. After being at home raising my kids, I was looking for a way to sharpen my skills, while casting a positive light on my home, the Jersey Shore.

So, I built my blog and interviewed local creatives and entrepreneurs and shared their stories. Everything about the project was a great experience, but within a short amount of time, I came to a couple of conclusions that brought me to a new place.

The first conclusion was that in order for me to put my best work out into the world, I needed to increase my knowledge and learn skills like writing, storytelling, design, branding, web design, photography, technology, and social media. And I loved every bit of what I was learning!

It also didn't take me long to realize that blogging involves dedication and a commitment of time and resources, and I needed a clearer vision about where I wanted to go.

I then began educating myself about online businesses-- watching countless webinars, purchasing and completing several online courses to help me see the big picture of creating my business. Soon I had a vision and a plan to continue doing what I love as a blogger while working toward a goal of creating a successful online business.

Why I'm Here ... To Help You

So, eight months after initially launching Real Jersey Shore, I made the decision to relaunch my blog as purely a blogging, marketing and business resource for aspiring and emerging online entrepreneurs. While sometimes where we're headed isn't revealed until we start, I also understand what it's like to have an idea but feel held back by technology or simply not knowing where to start.

So through my blog I want to do what I can to help others get past these hurdles and get their most meaningful and important work out into the world.

If you're someone who wants to make an impact in the world, but you're not sure how you'll go about doing that or where to start, I'd love to help you.

Trying to figure out a way to combine your passions, skills, story and perspective to create meaningful, fulfilling, AND profitable work can be overwhelming, if not paralyzing. But rather than build someone else's dream, why not consider combining your passions, skills and strengths and build your own dream?

I believe that everyone has a story to tell and a unique expression of value that will attract those in the world who need to hear it. The most important thing is to start somewhere, and I can assure you that you'll find your way as you go. 

So my intentions are simple-- to be as transparent and real as possible while teaching you what I'm learning about starting and growing an online business.

Each week I will share what I am learning along my journey on topics related to:

  • Finding Your Personal Expression of Value / Niche
  • Creating Your Brand & Website
  • Modern Marketing & Growing Your Audience
  • Building & Monetizing Your Online Business
  • Life & Personal Development

Thanks so much for reading. I'm looking forward to helping and encouraging you in any way I can! ~ Ellie
