    In your latest Rise of Ngo series you mention hitting the million dollar mark in January '09 coming from just a few months earlier, October '08, when you were really struggling.

    Could you get into more detail on how this happened?

    -What were your activities every day?
    -How many hours a day were you putting in?
    -How many offers were you running?
    -Was it relatively easy once you got profitable campaigns and was it just a matter of scaling out the process?
    -Do you think you got lucky?

    That post really opened up my eyes to what's truly possible in this industry.

    Thanks again.

    - I was so in the zone that nothing else in life mattered. I remember one day I even forgot to eat. I don't recommend this, it's just what happened to me.

    - Maybe 18 hours a day, 6 hours of sleep. Back then I knew absolutely nothing about productivity and was just brute forcing things

    - Two offers

    - Yes. It was instantly profitable but I still kept split testing to make it even more profitable. At that time since the campaign was so profitable, it was just a matter of finding traffic sources and launching.

    - I don't believe in the word luck. Fact is there were thousands of other affiliates in that same time period, yet most of them weren't able to do what I did.

    I had the resources. At that point I was already on weekly wires, I had an Amex with unlimited spend, and I didn't have a job occupying my time. Lucky is opportunity meets preparation, and I was prepared.

    Fantastic. It's amazing how "lucky" people who put the time and effort in seem to get :)

    Not sure, maybe $300k? I remember I was doing 300%+ ROI's.

    The question is how did I have $300k at that point? I had an Amex Plum card that had unlimited spend, and I was on weekly and even daily wires.

    To take advantage of luck, you have to be prepared for it.
