    marlon sanders - because the way he explains internet marketing makes things so clear and simple. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the information out there and he is just good with giving me perspective and reminding me not to overcomplicate things. (Pretty much any of his products -amazing formula, promo dashboard, affiliate dashboard)

    Joe Lavery - This guy is very inspiring and also just cuts right to the point, no B.S. This is one of the guys who other IMers turn to when they themselves want to increase their profits so that definately says something. Not only that but he is very entertaining. When you buy his stuff implement it right away and you will see results.

    For joe lavery I bought his "Response Dynamite" and am going to be buying his "testing dynamite"

    I hate to say it but for me it was just sort of dumb luck. I fell into a very hot eBay niche based on one of my own hobbies and then I started my own website when I was on break from school because I was bored and over night I had 3k unique visitors.

      LOL - I like the idea of dumb luck - we're all looking for a little of that; however, you are probably underestimating the power of working in an area which you know and love.

    I find The Theory of Constraints a very interesting tool for growing my business.

    I often ask myself, "What is the number one thing constraining my business growth at the moment and how do I overcome it?"

    I then come up with the answer and focus ALL my energies on overcoming that one problem.

    After overcoming the constraint you usually get a solid period of growth until you hit the next constraint.

    Cheers,
    Kenneth

    Stuart Ross has been the biggest influence for me. Quietly, this guy is breaking barriers and his training is hands down head and shoulders above anyone I have studied so far. Frank kern is doing something very cool these days also.

    For me it's just a huge plethora of learning over time from lots of individuals, sites, forums, and blogs, and a lot of just putting 2 and 2 together.

    I also have found a lot of value using TweetAdder for twitter. Has saved me lots of time and gotten me lots of traffic

      For me it is the experiences I've encountered in my decades of living.

      From working in the medical field, customer service, the teaching arena, counseling, offline business owner, the acting arena to becoming a wife and most especially a mother.

      Being a successful mother comes in great when you have a lot of experience in not only knowing how to handle kids, but the knowledge and wisdom in guiding them where you want them to go and compelling them to do what you want them to do. :p

      Well that and acting, haha!

        I was lucky to be taught this business by a close friend. He has influenced me the most and helped me along the way. Also reading other people's success stories on this forum and others is a great motivator.
