Our Goal is to INSPIRE, EDUCATE & MOTIVATE everyone to Become ENTREPRENEURS & AUTHORS.

We believe every ENTREPRENEUR / AUTHOR has a unique story and life experiences. Our goal is to share those stories and experiences to INSPIRE, EDUCATE and MOTIVATE others to start their own success journey. We love to promote authors and founders. We do it to promote you; to promote your business; to promote your books. We want to play our part in making you a success.

We do run it through Grammarly, and sometimes make small changes, punctuation, typos, title, small changes for SEO purposes, but nothing major. In most cases, the interview is published as it was written. (This is why you must double-check it before you submit it)

YES. We share every published Interview on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. However, on Instagram, only a select few will be shared. We hand-picked what we share on Instagram. It simply would not make sense to share every single post on Instagram.

Yes. You can both participate. Either you each answer half, or you can both answer all questions. Please put your name next to the answer so readers can identify who is answering each question. Provide two bios. One Short bio that covers both cofounders. Here’s an example of cofounder interview from Mariya and Katya cofounders of 3veta

We have published 600 plus interviews and counting. You can see a few of them in the lineup here.

There is No changing images, interview title, or adding links to the interview. However, If there’s something EXTREME that we missed, we are more than happy to correct it. You’re welcome to let us know what the change is, but we’ll decide if the change is necessary.

A couple of reasons this may happen.

One – it got lost in the pile. Please submit again.

Two – It was rejected. We can’t track every interview (Those who don’t meet requirements and follow guidelines are likely to be lost) Please send again. Be sure it meets the requirements and the current Guidelines. If guidelines are met, We will add it to the lineup, however, you will have to wait in line again.

Yes, all links go at the bottom of the interview. There should be no links / URL in the bio or the body of the interview. All links will be added in the last question. How can readers get in touch with you? 3 Links Maximum. (We can’t add all your social profiles) – Also, all links are no-followed links. (we’re considered to be user-generated content in Google’s terms so all Links are NOFOLLOWED.

No Guarantees. However, as long as you meet the requirements and followed the guidelines correctly chances are it will be published.

Yes, the interview takes time. If you’re going to participate, please take the time to do it right for the reader (The next Generation of entrepreneurs who look up to you). We believe being an entrepreneur is not just about making money. You also have an obligation to teach others what you have learned. Yes, it takes time. But the time you put in will be a beacon of light for someone else who needs direction. Readers who learn from you are more likely to follow you for more insight. They will become fans and subscribers. This will only happen if you teach them something valuable. There absolutely no reason to participate if you’re not interested in it teaching the readers.

Self-help books, success books, marketing, social media, entrepreneurship, startups, even health fitness books are welcome. We’ve decided to pause all others for now. If you’re not sure where your book stands, just send your Amazon link to team@billionsuccess.com and we’ll answer you. Your book must be published and available for purchase from big book retailers like Amazon, Barne Noble, etc.

Yes. Only Amazon for books. The links to amazon books are in most cases affiliate links.

Yes. Please add me Herby Fabius on LinkedIn here
(It makes it super easy to find and tag you once the interview is published and shared)

Part of my mission is to connect with everyone who participated in the interview. I want to connect and follow your journey. Most businesses fail, so we like to follow founders, not their businesses. To be able to see what new projects our interviewees are working on, we encourage them to add Founder Herby on LinkedIn.
