I moved to Texas at the beginning of 2013 to start my first full-time job post-college. After a 6-month paid internship directly after graduation (THREE CHEERS FOR THAT!), the stress of the unknown had ended. And with three cross-country moves in less than one year under my belt, I could finally think about settling. Yikes.
As the chaos of another move and starting a new job subsided, it hit me: I was thoroughly sick of myself. With no family in the area and no children or pets to take care of, my only true responsibilities were to stay on top of: rent, bills, groceries, laundry, and…well, that’s about it. So. Hip hop class? I was there. Spontaneous concert? Check. Chocolate chip pancakes for dinner three nights out of the week? Clearly. But all of this fun was for my benefit. And after a while, the self-centeredness was becoming unfulfilling. A sense of guilt had started as well. This can’t be it, I knew.
The pull to help other people, to feel connected and part of a community, would be my resolve. Volunteering. HOWEVER, I would approach it differently than I had ever approached volunteering before. Previously, I was forced to volunteer. I did not choose where or who I volunteered with. I had no personal connection or investment. So how much was I actually benefiting those I was serving…or myself?
- Meeting Pete Cashmore, or, How to Prepare for Meeting Your Hero
To many, founder and CEO of Mashable Pete Cashmore is, as Contributing Editor Chris Raymond calls him, a “rare bird.” To me, “rare bird” doesn’t even begin to describe someone of his stature who started out as a 19-year-old blogger living in rural Scotland. Rare bird? More like pterodactyl. As someone who has been blogging [...]
- Where Credit Is Due
Kudos to my esteemed fellow editor Lisa Ocker for an important note in the Business 101 section of our May issue of SUCCESS, all about the pitfalls of obtaining a credit report online. (Read “Costly Consequences” on SUCCESS.com.) But when I saw what she wrote, I had to ask Lisa, Where was this story last [...]
- The Cat’s Meow
The South by Southwest (SXSW) crowd began to form a line at 12 pm, even though the featured guest wouldn’t arrive until 3 pm. “I literally planned my entire day around this.” “I convinced my sister to drive up from Houston for this. She doesn’t even have a SXSW badge; this is all she’s going [...]
- SUCCESS Turns “Five”
SUCCESS magazine has just turned 5. I know what you’re thinking– isn’t SUCCESS over a hundred years old? SUCCESS magazine was founded in 1897 by Orison Swett Marden, but, like many magazines of the time, closed down during the Great Depression despite its tremendous growth at the turn of the century. A few failed iterations [...]
- A Parenting Editor’s Surprising Take on Marissa Mayer’s Latest Move
I spent over 12 years as the Editor-in-Chief of one of the country’s biggest parenting magazines, 9 at Babytalk and 3 at Parenting, both with over 2 million in circulation. When I started out, my son was 3; my daughter wouldn’t arrive for years. I was a little nervous about moving to the top spot, [...]
- What 4-Year-Olds Think of Valentine’s Day
The other day over boiled crawfish (we felt daring), my colleagues and I discussed Valentine’s Day. Our new editorial assistant Emily is spending Valentine’s Day in a brand-new city after moving to Texas just a month ago. Our social media editor Jennifer is in that relationship sweet spot where she’s been dating long enough to [...]
- Editor’s Note: January 2013 Issue
I have stood onstage arm in arm with Martha Stewart as cameras flashed. I have chatted with her at a book party for a mutual friend. But I have never cooked with Stewart, the honor bestowed on Susan Young, who wrote our cover feature. And here’s the great back story behind it: Martha Stewart is a [...]
- Lying: What Would You Do?
In the December 2012 issue, SUCCESS magazine explores lying in the workplace. Whether the fib was calling in sick with a fake illness, or accepting praise for someone else’s work, the SUCCESS survey shows we are a nation of fibbers. Here’s one interesting anecdote that didn’t make the pages of SUCCESS and frankly, left the [...]
- Keep Your Facebook Brand Page Free of Fees
If you keep a close eye on your Facebook business page analytics and have recently noticed a decrease in your Weekly Total Reach number, you’re not alone. Facebook has rolled out a feature that requires its brand pages to pay a fee for an individual post to reach all of their fans. Keep in mind, [...]
- A Hairy Issue
So, I know you’re wondering, what’s with the mustache? And with Halloween right around the corner, where is the rest of my costume? Well there isn’t any, because I’m donning this ‘stache for a good cause. After October comes Movember–that’s “M” as in mustache. This year, nearly a million folks across the globe will celebrate [...]
- Marissa Mayer vs. Me
Okay, that headline was a trick to get you to read this post. Our contributing editor Chris Brogan, social media expert extraordinaire, gave me the idea (thanks, Chris!). The truth is I love Marissa Mayer. I love her brilliance, her joie de vivre (she’s famous for her parties), and her femininity (I flatter myself that, [...]
- Dear SUCCESS reader Jeremy Delancy
Jeremy Delancy is a 45 year old speech writer who lives in The Bahamas. He’s left-handed, funny and has an interesting story of rediscovering SUCCESS magazine. Because I don’t have a photo of Jeremy, we’ll say this beachy guy on the right is him. “I first discovered SUCCESS in 1995 while living in Green Turtle Cay, [...]
- I Think Helen Gurley Brown Owned My Cabinet
I have this antique cabinet that I’m convinced belonged in former Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown‘s NYC apartment. Indulge me here while I explain. The longtime Cosmopolitan editor, who died Monday, August 13 at the age of 90, lived a storied life. Not only was she the first to lead frank discussions about sex in [...]
- The Big Picture
Here at SUCCESS.com, we just adjourned from our “Big Picture” meeting, where we discussed you–our audience, as well as editorial content, product offerings, dot com infrastructure and more. I can tell you we have an extraordinarily talented group of people working here, who all want to see SUCCESS be the very best it can. This group takes pride and [...]
- The Problem with Children
I was asked by my esteemed online editors to write a blog about the experience of moving, one of those off-the-stress chart experiences I am currently in the middle of. As in, I have been living in an apartment in Texas and “commuting” home to New York every other weekend to see my husband and [...]
- A Letter to Our Start Small Win Big Contestants
I’m knee-deep in entries for our Start Small Win Big Challenge, and I just had to stop and tell you: I am humbled. I knew it would be tough to judge this contest. We have a crack team of judges from the editorial staff, but our readers are high achievers with big dreams—and this was [...]
- New this week on SUCCESS.com
Although we’re proud of SUCCESS magazine’s 20 page bonus section on Happiness in our June issue, this edition of ‘New this week on SUCCESS.com’ is going to focus on the rest of the great articles that appear regularly every month. If you’ve read any of our bonus Happiness articles, you know that research has debunked [...]

- Reflections of a Semi-Recent College Grad
Congratulations! You’re a graduate. If you’re reading this as a high school senior and you’re headed to college or trade school in a few short months, then you’re about to embark on a wonderful journey filled with rich academia, “finding yourself,” and the freedom to wear athletic shorts and T-shirts 24/7 without societal judgment. You [...]
- A New Yorker in Tornado Alley
My niece Dale got off the phone with her mom (and my sister) with a concerned look on her face. “My parents are worried about the tornado watch around here,” said the beautiful 24-year-old pianist and composer who was in Dallas touring. I laughed. “Oh, your mom’s such a worrywart,” I told her. “Dallas won’t [...]
- Best of SUCCESS Office Antics
Pay no mind to the cackle of laughter coming from the next cubicle; research in this May 2012 SUCCESS magazine article suggests a little healthy diversion is good in the workplace. If a little diversion is good, then a lot is great, right? The times I’ve laughed hardest have been at work with my motley crue of co-workers. Somehow, [...]
- Walmart’s Redeeming Quality
Yesterday, I experienced fantastic customer service. What surprised me wasn’t that this customer service was from a nice restaurant, a hotel concierge or an airline representative in whose carrier I hold Gold status. It was in a Walmart, from an elderly gentleman working the cash register.
- What Do You Want From Me?
I don’t mean this question in the same way I mean it when I shriek it to one of my kids. What I mean is: What kinds of articles do you want to see in SUCCESS? A special issue entirely devoted to the Kardashian family (ha—only kidding!)? A special issue devoted to something else? More [...]
- Becoming a Texan
For six months now, I’ve been the editor-in-chief at SUCCESS here in Dallas. Before that, I was the editor-in-chief at Parenting Magazine in New York City, and I didn’t want to get stuck doing stories on potty training for the rest of my life. Also, we lived in the New York suburbs in the ridiculously [...]
- SUCCESS Is Feeling the Love!
With his recent blog post, Make Love Everyday, fresh on his mind, Darren Hardy lived out his own advice and made the staff at SUCCESS feel very loved! A warm thank you to all of our readers, especially our supporters in the video at the ACN conference in Charlotte, NC. We’re feeling the love!
- Things My Dad Taught Me
My dad is on my mind again. The last three nights, I’ve had dreams about him. One night, I was Karate-chopping my stepmother. Another night, I ran into his arms sobbing. The third I have a hard time remembering, but I understand why my dad’s been on my mind. His birthday is coming up on February [...]
- What’s the Most Precious Resource You Waste?
Tick, tock, tick, tock. Think fast! Here’s a riddle: What resource is scarce—yet easily taken for granted, squandered or rationalized? It’s not money—because everyone could use more money no matter how much we have. And I’m not talking about good health or clean water or fossil fuels, although these could be plausible answers. Give up [...]
- Shed Your Uniform and Show Some Personality
For roughly 325 days a year, we look exactly the same—basic slacks and dress shirts in standard colors of black, grey and muted tones. You might show your personality with a fun print or colored tie, but for the most part, your clothes are the same daily. That is, until October 31st, Halloween… and the [...]

- Is Boss a Four-Letter Word?
Sunday, Oct. 16 marks an important holiday. Surely, you didn’t forget? Father’s Day, Mother’s Day? No, it’s National Boss Day. For entrepreneurs and small-business owners, Boss Day could be any day, really. And be thankful for that; as you can probably attest, there’s some pretty bad bosses out there. Celebrated on Oct. 16, or the [...]

- Documenting Jobs’ Life and Legacy
The December issue of SUCCESS magazine was already at press when the news broke of Steve Jobs’ death on Oct. 5. A quick call to the printer gave editors 24 hours to update the December cover and an interview with Carmine Gallo, author of The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great [...]

- The Story Behind the Comebacks: What We Learned from Our Business Recovery Stories
Everyone likes a good comeback story. We root for the underdog and we cheer when David slays Goliath. Today, as the economy teeters with uncertainty, comebacks are harder to come by. No problem finding failures. And there are plenty of survival stories, too. But Survival is not the title of this magazine.
- Reporter’s Notebook: Steve Jobs
‘His health battles made it problematic to continue as Apple’s hands-on brilliant micromanager from hell.’ by John H. Ostdick Steve Jobs’ resignation last week as Apple CEO occurred, as most everything else, on his own terms. The man who has maintained an iron grip on how his company’s story is told exited gracefully, solemnly, with [...]

People often ask SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy what his favorite interview has been. Of the hundreds of successful people he’s interviewed for our audio CD, Darren will tell you that his interview with personal mentor Jim Rohn ranks near the top. But Darren has a new favorite. His name is Louis Zamperini. (Read his moving [...]
- The American Dream Attained
Imagine movie stars, business magnates, decorated military leaders, bankers, media moguls, recording artists and members of the judiciary in one room—a very big room. What kind of event would draw such a diverse group?
The only thing these people share is that they’ve overcome early financial hardships through their own diligence and hard work, and created their own success stories. They’re members and supporters of the Horatio Alger Association and, while their career paths are varied, their experiences offer proof that the American dream is attainable.
SUCCESS magazine has profiled many of them, most recently Leonardo DiCaprio, who was among the new members inducted in a ceremony in April. Others we have profiled include astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Famous Amos’ Wally Amos, Starbucks’ Howard Schultz, energy titan T. Boone Pickens, music producer Quincy Jones, boxer and businessman George Foreman, and PepsiCo’s Indra Nooyi.
Two years ago, I wrote to Horatio Alger Association officials to ask about media credentials. There are no media credentials, I was told; this is not a media event. I wrote back to explain that… CLICK HERE TO READ REST OF POST
- Sometimes You Have to Unplug to Find Your Outlet
I never knew my dad’s outlet until just now. Driving into work this morning, I felt blank. Void. I didn’t have any words to say outwardly, but I needed to express myself inwardly.
“I need to write,” I thought, making a mental note to post that as my Facebook status. “That’s my outlet, my thing—writing.” Already I was feeling better.
That got me thinking about other people’s escapes. My husband’s outlet is sleeping. When things overwhelm him and he feels stuck, he sleeps. A lot. Then he wakes up, literally and figuratively, and feels better.
My best friend’s outlet is music. Loud, house music of the club persuasion. He’s this big, beefy Englishman and yet he loves a poppy electronic tune to get his day going.
My late father-in-law’s outlet was us. His new wife and child were demanding, but laughing and going out with his sons and me was the escape he needed, although he had hell to pay when he got home.
What about my father? He was a… Click Here to Read More
- Advice for Graduating Students
For Joanna Novelo, a SUCCESS magazine Facebook fan page reader, who asked advice for her graduating class from San Francisco State University:
1. Watch this: Steve Jobs to Stanford Grads: Do What You Love
2. Remember, “you must do the thing you think you cannot do.” —Eleanor Roosevelt
3. Learn from great entrepreneurs, like Tony Hawk. A school psychologist once explained to the skateboarder’s parents that he was a “gifted child who struggles because he has the mind of a 12-year-old trapped inside an 8-year-old’s body.” Developing his exceptional talent on a skateboard was the key to unlocking Hawk’s success. His confidence grew, his personality improved, he smiled more and he stopped mentally beating himself up for his perceived failures. So, find what you’re good at. Do what you love. Find a way to make a living doing it. Wear a helmet.
4. Create good habits for yourself. Experts say it takes 21 days of consistent, focused behavior to make a difference. Start today.
5. Build your personal-development library. Visit the SUCCESS Store for books and DVDs on personal development.
6. There are 168 hours in a week. But when you ask most people, they’ll answer 40 because their brains are programmed to think in workweek terms. Learn to use those 168 hours wisely and fully.
7. “There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.” —Ronald Reagan
- SUCCESS Foundation Inspires Teens to ‘GR8′
by David Lee The main office at Skyline High School in Dallas is a constant stream of activity. With nearly 5,000 students, Skyline is one of the largest high schools in the country. The SUCCESS Foundation introduced its Eight to GR8 program to the school as part of its mission to equip today’s youth with [...]
- This Ain’t Your Parents’ Marriage
I have to admit, I am that little girl who adored her parents. While my friends’ parents were all getting divorced, my parents were still together and happy about it. I held them up as the standard for marriage. But after a year of marriage I can tell you with certainty, this ain’t my parents’ marriage. I have come to realize being a newlywed in the 21st century is significantly different than it was for my parents.
First, you should know that my husband and I met online, MySpace to be exact. Now, granted, we had a previous connection, having gone to the same high school, he graduated a year before me, but still our relationship was born from technology. And technology has since been a staple of our relationship, as it is for so many younger couples. Text, instant messenger and sites like Facebook or Twitter are often the main means of communication—certainly not the case for people like my parents. So how do you establish a meaningful, fulfilling and, most important, stable marriage, when texting is your primary means of communicating with your spouse?
Honestly, it’s not easy, and I can’t say that I have completely succeeded. But with my husband working twelve-hour days, and me working five days a week at an office I drive an hour each way to get to, we have to “make it work” (as Tim Gunn would say).
First I think ground rules should be established. For example, you should both agree
- What Mark Zuckerberg Taught Us about Our Readers
What do you not know about Mark Zuckerberg?
Facebook founder. Billionaire boy wonder. And by now, you know he’s the SUCCESS 2010 Achiever of the Year.
When we first began throwing out names of candidates for the award, Zuckerberg’s was right up there. The SUCCESS team along with freelance writer Sally Deneen continued to research and discuss as we strived to come up with a stellar list of nominees.
Even though we would present the nominees to readers for the final vote, we couldn’t help but assess them ourselves: Oprah Winfrey’s move to found her OWN network was gutsy and inspiring; master innovator Steve Jobs had wowed the world again with the iPad; Warren Buffett’s and Bill and Melinda Gates’ brand of philanthropy was bringing attention, money and solutions to the world’s most intractable problems; Chris Anderson’s idea-sparking TED forums were morphing and expanding, bringing even more of the brightest minds in technology, entertainment and design together in public TEDx events worldwide; and then there was Zuckerberg, who had changed the way we connect with each other.
But there was something else about Zuckerberg—a little movie called The Social Network that was starting to generate buzz. The movie was sure to be a blockbuster, but word was that Zuckerberg was cast as an overly ambitious and uncaring villain. Would our readers be turned off?
Which brings me to what you don’t know about Zuckerberg…
- Author Tim Sanders Visits SUCCESS
If “love is the killer app,” confidence is the ultimate power. Love is the Killer App author Tim Sanders visited the SUCCESS office near Dallas recently to discuss his new book, Today We Are Rich: Harnessing the Power of Total Confidence.
Tim, who grew up in New Mexico and once lived in the Dallas area, shared stories of his learning experiences and adventures, including moving stories of his grandmother Billye. He explained how he arrived at the book title, Today We Are Rich, from a childhood encounter with Billye and Clarence, a man down on his luck looking for work on the farm. The modest outpouring his grandmother offered, despite her own limited means, taught Tim everyone is rich with gifts. It’s up to you to recognize it and share it.

- Landing the Big One:
The Story Behind SUCCESS Profiles
by Lisa Ocker
So much in life hinges on these things: relationship-building, persistence and resourcefulness. Paul Scott Adamo, SUCCESS talent executive, knows this very well.
Since the early issues following SUCCESS magazine’s re-launch in 2008, Paul has helped book interviews with celebrities, prominent businesspeople, entrepreneurs and sports figures. Based in New York, Paul has more than 10 years’ experience as a producer, talent executive and casting director for television, radio and print.
Increasingly, publicists come to Paul with requests for SUCCESS stories on their clients. But more often, it takes months or years of Paul’s persistent follow-ups to land the interview. But there’s more to Paul’s job than following up; he looks for opportunities—such as new movies, books, business developments or charitable ventures—these extraordinary achievers want to promote. In addition to staying in touch with publicists, Paul attends book expos, industry events and parties, and movie screenings.
“You have to be persistent and never give up,” Paul says. “It can take a day to book someone—or two years.”
Such was the case with our January cover feature on…
- Living Your Best Year and My Done Column
Today’s an exciting day. SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy’s latest release, Living Your Best Year Ever is shipping NOW.
As the book’s editor, I, too, am filled with excitement. Gratification for being selected to edit such a great project. Pride for a job well done. Oh, and relief. I can move the towering stack of drafts and revisions from my desk (see photo) and mentally make a tally mark in the “done” column. That’s my favorite column.

- There Comes a Moment When You Know: It’s Time.
What are you waiting for? Last week, almost 30,000 women and men in Long Beach, Calif., and countless more via the Web, have heard the call: It’s time. It’s time to take action on your dream, or against the dissatisfaction you feel. It’s time to move forward… to stop waiting.
I’ve attended The Women’s Conference for the past three years. Each time I leave with renewed hope, inspired to take another step toward the life I desire. As I write this on the flight home, my mind is buzzing with excitement and energy (and exhaustion). I’m overwhelmed with the ideas and inspiration Maria Shriver, the conference team and the speakers generously pour into this forum for women.
Attending a conference is only worth the time and expense if you actually do something with what you’ve learned, and follow up with the people you’ve met. So, as I review my 30-plus pages of notes, gather my thoughts, and make my personal action plan, I thought I’d share just a few of the comments and moments that resonated with me. I hope they’ll inspire you, and that you’ll hear the call to action. It’s time.
Grow and give despite (or because of) pain…
- Behind the Scenes Photo Magic
When you’re a high-profile celebrity, your photo is taken all the time: out shopping, walking the dog, or late nights out. Some of those photos turn out great and some turn out to be a little risqué. For example, while looking for photos of Serena Williams for last year’s October cover, I came across a photo of her in a thong bikini. Not quite SUCCESS cover material…
- Shrinking a Big Head
Today, I’d like to take a lesson from a godfather of soul. No, I’m not talking about James Brown. I’m talking about the man who is godfather to R&B star Usher.
Entertainment legend Ben Vereen.
Now, I have to tell you that one of the things that most surprised me in my interview with Usher for our October cover story was his humility. I mean, let’s face it; the guy could have a head the size of Manhattan, and people would still buy his albums. If you rank up there with the Beatles and the Bee Gees when it comes to Top 10 singles, you’re almost expected to have an ego as big as your success.
Usher is aware of the expectation. “People think this lavish lifestyle is fun and games all the time, that there’s nothing serious about it,” he said…
- Priority 1: Stop the Chaos.
Priority 2: Live with Purpose.
I’m a serious student of time management. I was hooked the first time I attended a Franklin-Covey seminar—I was 23. Using a system that included life planning (not just a calendar), I was able to get more done without feeling so scattered.
But since then, “more” has turned into a lot more. And it’s not just my stuff that that I have to keep track of… it’s my kids, my husband, work, school, writing deadlines, travel schedules, etc. Keeping everything organized in one online calendar helps, but the warning light on my mental-stress indicator was flashing OVERLOAD on a regular basis.
So it’s no wonder that the title of Patrick Lencioni’s book The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family caught my attention. Frantic is exactly how I felt. Maybe Lencioni and his book could offer some guidance for getting back to that not-so-scattered state.
It’s ironic that the day I was to interview Patrick Lencioni on the topic of frantic families, I realized I had a schedule conflict; I had to pick up my oldest son from driver’s ed. Lencioni was able to push the meeting back by 20 minutes, and when he called I was ready with my first question: Is frantic simply a way of life for today’s busy families, or is there a better way?
- My Secret Productivity Weapon Against a Roller-Coaster Day
by Amy Anderson Managing Editor Okay, so the fact that I scribbled the letter “B” on the back of my hand to remind myself to write this blog entry today should tell you just how much I need productivity strategies. I have a friend who jokes that my mind is like a steel sieve. That’s [...]
- The Stuff of Legends: What sports greats are truly made of
As I sit down to write, I imagine our contributing editor Don Yaeger on assignment: Deep in South Louisiana, he’s swatting mosquitoes in the swelter of this July afternoon. He’s sweating. Every once in a while, he has to stomp a foot to keep a fire ant from climbing up his sock. And he’s loving every minute.
- Working for the Hometown Paper: Lessons in Accountability and What Really Matters
I remember Walter Cronkite saying the best training you could get as a reporter was at your hometown paper, where you better spell your neighbors’ names right or risk getting punched in the nose. I started my journalism career 28 years ago at my hometown paper, The Baytown Sun, on the upper Gulf Coast of Texas.
- Behind the Scenes: Entrepreneur, Designer, Philanthropist Kenneth Cole
During my interview with Kenneth Cole in his Manhattan offices for our July cover story, three things happened that didn’t make it into the article but told me more about Kenneth Cole as a person than many of the answers he gave me.
- Direct Marketing Guru Stan Rapp, well, Raps with SUCCESS Editors
Hailed as a direct marketing legend by Advertising Age and Direct Marketing News, Stan Rapp sat down with us at the SUCCESS office, just outside Dallas. We were about to talk about direct marketing in the digital age, but first we discovered this wasn’t his first encounter with SUCCESS.
- Let’s talk money.
Money and time. The two topics most people avoid are the ones we’re tackling head-on in our February issue. Most of us struggle with time and money at some point, whether it’s learning to manage our schedules, setting up a plan for retirement or just trying to get out of debt. We at SUCCESS magazine [...]

Welcome to the first issue of SUCCESS for the year 2010! We are excited to have you with us as we kick-start a fantastic year of personal growth and achievement.
