An Online Business Success Story

I love success stories. But I especially love anti-hype success stories. What is an anti-hype success story? Well, let me say that, in my view, it’s a story that details the success of someone without trying to make it sound miraculous, easy, quick, and so on and so forth.

Most people unfortunately are attracted by notions of “effortless success,” or “overnight success.” If you look at the testimonials of many internet marketing training systems they’ll tend to zero in on of the one person in a 1,000 who went from 0 dollars to 10,000 in 30 days, while ignoring the other 999 people.

In any event, I read a really good success story that I want to share here. It doesn’t have to do with or even article marketing, but it is a story of online business success.

What I really liked about this story is how the person who finally achieved success discussed how long it took, how difficult it was, and that she would have definitely given up had it not been for her mentor (who is the person interviewing her).

What’s also noteworthy is that once she got over the really difficult hump, things began to pick up. I don’t believe she uses the word momentum but that’s exactly what it is.

I once read a book by Donald Trump in which he devoted an entire chapter to Momentum in business (and life). He noted that momentum was critical, and yet, oddly, it’s almost never discussed in any business book, ever.

Momentum is just as vital in article marketing or

When it comes to this lady, you’ll note that it took her a long time and a great deal of work to get to the first 500 unique visitors a day to her website, but that from 500 to 3,000 happened much quicker.

Oh, I should also mention, I got this story from long time member and fellow star of AffiliateArticleWriters Henri, aka Purplebeans.

I advise you to sign up for Henri’s free blog/newsletter at

It’s been a pleasure of mine to watch Henri grow since he came into AffiliateArticleWriters. He busted his hump, created basically a 1,000 dollar a month passive income with us through Xtend-Life and then started reached a wider audience with passion through a blog he created,

As everyone knows, rarely do I ever promote anything in AAW. How many times have you seen me endorse another training service or an ebook or anything? I don’t do that. It’s not my style.

And of course I’m not getting a nickle for plugging Henri. His newsletter is free. But he is a rare voice of authenticity and I think the Internet needs more of that.

Henri not only achieved a 4 figure a month passive income with the AAW system but is rising the ranks through a lot of HARD WORK via his excellent blog and building a well deserved following for offering real, introspective insights.

He also details his earnings on some posts from other sources, such as his blog, and shows how through hard work one can create a several thousand dollar a month income online starting from nothing, and achieve the “internet lifestyle” without being some sort of guru.

By the way, I found the inspirational article from Henri via facebook. If you do use facebook, you can find me at:

I should advise you that my facebook account is not really about business, although I sometimes discuss things about it there. It’s a combination of whatever I feel like saying, which is often little irrelevant personal stuff. I also don’t use facebook too often, but feel free to friend me if you use it.
