What is the reason for this extraordinary public response that also includes subscription rates five times higher than the industry average? "I think this magazine has been so well received because it is totally different from anything else that is out there right now for a very large, emerging generation of entrepreneurs and business people," says Jim Pelletier, an industry expert with 35 years of newsstand sales experience and former NewsGroup sales director. "This publication is unique in the depth and type of information it presents in its detailed interviews with self-made millionaires. The format is entertaining and interesting, but it actually teaches -- from examples and defining moments of extremely successful people who are willing to share invaluable information they have never been asked to share before."
Spinks says that the concept for this magazine came out of his frustration with traditional business publications success stories. "They would stir my emotions but they never shared the actual specifics that brought the money into their doors," he adds. Spinks says that he wanted to dig further into the stories of self-made millionaires and learn how they came up with the money to finance their businesses, how they got their customers, and how they stayed successful.
