As an entrepreneur, I’m curious, how do you feel when you hear about an “overnight success story”? People who seemly come from nowhere and make it big in the shortest possible time. You might hear them on a podcast, read about them on a blog, or even see them in the media…
Their stories tell the tale of success and how easy it was. They practically went to sleep one night and woke up rich the next morning. It couldn’t be easier right?
Well I’m here to tell you that behind every success story there were many unspoken failures along the way. It’s true what they say, “an overnight success takes about 10 years”…
And I’m no exception.
A little while back I was interviewed by Yanik Silver (a legend in the internet marketing realm) where I revealed my story – “what it really takes to succeed online”. The ups and the downs.
I thought, if you’re just getting started, or if you’ve been building a business for some time, you might find it useful.
It’s always good to get a good dose of reality.

Your Internet Entrepreneur,
Ps. This isn’t the first time I’ve been interviewed like this – I had another great one with Yaro Starak a while back. It never saw the light of day and I thought now might be the right time to share it with you. Click here to download my interview with Yaro.
I’d often get envious of “overnight success stories” because it’s been a struggle for me to try to get farther in life. Like you said though, even these successful people must have experienced real challenges too. I wish more people would talk about the downs rather than overly focus on the ups to give us budding entrepreneurs more realistic expectations.
got to learn much from the interview..thanks
