This guy is the real deal. His site is loaded with the goods. I’m a fan and reader, so I jumped on the opportunity to do an interview with him. His name is Farouk Radwan. Enjoy.
Rob: When folks are reading about the success of others, we usually close our eyes to the work involved. We think it’s been an overnight success. I know I’ve been guilty of that. Tell us what kind of commitment and how many years it took for your overnight success?
“Success never happens overnight and it might
take months or even years before it happens.”
Farouk: Your question mentioned a very important fact about success. Success never happens overnight and it might take months or even years before it happens. Let me tell you a few facts that are not known about my website. We used to be 3 working on the website and after many months passed with a very low revenue 2 of us gave up and left the site. I myself was about to give up after a year when the revenues were still very low compared to the effort I was making. I didn’t start to make any good money off the site before 2 years passed. Now just as you said some people see the final result without knowing what I have been through.
Rob: Farouk, you are living a success story but it wasn’t always that way.
It would have been easier to quit. Many people do. Why didn’t you?
“Let me tell you a secret about successful people…”
Farouk: To be honest there was a day where I thought about quitting. I still remember it well. Let me tell you a secret about successful people, they are not the ones who don’t feel down, sad, depressed or think about quitting but they are the ones who keep going even if they are feeling all of these bad emotions together.
Rob: I’ve learned from reading on your site. How often and what do you read?
“I try to read every day for half an hour.”
Farouk: I am extremely interested in self-help and psychology. I try to read every day for half an hour. As for what I read, I either Google a topic that I want to know about or I grab a good book that a trusted person recommends.
Rob: I get the most satisfaction knowing I helped someone get out of a rut.
What gives you the most satisfaction in regards to your work?
“Feeling good as a result of helping people is awesome.”
Farouk: Feeling good as a result of helping people is awesome. In addition to that, I feel really good when someone who made fun of my site or tried to put me down discovers that I became successful. It just makes me feel real good 🙂
