What Successful People Have in Common
Success shows in many different areas: work, business, marriage or relationship, faith, hobby. Success will not often happen easily or even with the first attempt. For many the one factor that signals success is the sheer determination and number of attempts made. That’s right – failures. Here are some famous examples:

Walt Disney – Walt was fired from an early job at the Kansas City Star Newspaper because, they said, he was not creative enough! In 1922 he started his first company called Laugh-O-Gram. The Kansas based business would produce cartoons and short advertising films. In 1923, that business went bankrupt. Walt didn’t give up, he packed up, went to Hollywood and started The Walt Disney Company.

Richard Branson – The man who founded Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Music and Virgin Active did not start at the top. He dropped out of school at the age of 16 to start a student magazine that didn’t do as well as he hoped. He then set up a mail-order record business which did so well that he opened his own record shop called Virgin. Along the way to success came many other failed ventures including Virgin Cola, Virgin Vodka, Virgin Clothes, Virgin Vie, Virgin cards, etc.

Oprah Winfrey – who ranks No 1 in the Forbes celebrity list and is recognised as the queen of entertainment based on an amazing career as iconic talk show host, media proprietor, actress and producer. In her earlier career she had numerous set-backs, which included getting fired from her job as a reporter because she was ‘unfit for television’, getting fired as co-anchor for the 6 O’clock weekday news on WJZ-TV and being demoted to morning TV.

J.K. Rowling – who wrote the Harry Potter books selling over 400 million copies and making it one of the most successful and lucrative book and film series ever. However, like so many writers she received endless rejections from publishers. Many rejected her manuscript outright for reasons like ‘it was far too long for a children’s book’ or because ‘children books never make any money’. J.K. Rowling’s story is even more inspiring because when she started she was a divorced single mum on welfare.

Bill Gates -co-founder and chairman of Microsoft dropped out of Harvard and set up a business called Traf-O-Data. The partnership between him, Paul Allen and Paul Gilbert was based on a good idea (to read data from roadway traffic counters and create automated reports on traffic flows) but a flawed business model that left the company with few customers. The company ran up losses between 1974 and 1980 before it was closed. However, Bill Gates and Paul Allen took what they learned and avoided those mistakes whey they created the Microsoft empire.

These are just the rich and famous. There are millions more little-known, but successful people who share the same trait – they simply will not give up.

On Demand Cloud-Based Video Distribution System

I recently discovered a cloud-based system that is vastly superior to selling physical DVDs. It’s ideal for video producers, publishers, distributors, or anyone selling a digital product. Setting it up is easy and the rest is hands off. It also works with affiliates, rentals, and subscriptions. Don’t have your own products yet? You can sell other peoples’ videos by just adding them to your store and start making affiliate profits. VideoUniversity is selling videos and digital products using this software and so is Time-Life. There are no monthly fees! Learn the easy way to sell your videos.

How To Setup, Light, and Shoot Great Interviews
Interviews are often the heart of a video. Look how important they are to TV Network Magazine Shows, Business Videos, Testimonials, Video Biographies, Settlement Videos. Put another way, could you produce many videos without using interviews? If you only learn to light one type of scene, the interview is the one to learn. With a basic lighting kit and the instruction in this DVD your interviews will look like they were shot by a network magazine crew. Learn more.
