Someone You Should Know!



A Q& A With Blogger and Internet Marketer, Rob Rammuny

Note: Check the archives here at Pen and Prosper, and you'll discover one thing that makes today's post unusual: I typically don't do many interviews.
So, let's rewind...to how this story came about...

Awhile back ago, I happened to be reading an excellent post at Daily Blog Tips, and did a little research to find out a little more about the man "behind the words".
Much to my surprise I learned that this sage soul was only 16!
Further research established that he has a Twitter following of over 4000 people, and is reported to make about $4000.00 a month working from home!

And, dig this----he was named by Income Diary as one of the 50 Most Influential Bloggers in 2010.

I hope you'll be as impressed and as inspired as I was to read his success story.

Please tell my readers a little about who you are and your background.
In short - My name is Rob Rammuny, I'm a 16 year old Internet marketer who enjoys a full time income online. My goal is to help others break free of the traditional 9-5 "work" lifestyle and escape into the "Internet" lifestyle where people can live the lifestyle they truly desire.

What do you think is the biggest mistake business people make in trying to earn money online?
They overcomplicate things and they act like babies.

1) Making money isn't complicated. One night I scheduled an email (took 3-5 minutes), went to bed and woke up to $100 in my Clickbank account and that was just my day starting. It's not complicated whatsoever, and people want to make it seem like that.

2) They can't stay still - they are trying to jump from system to system trying to find what works and they don't actually try to stick with the system. They expect INSTANT results which is possible, but unless you land on the golden nugget it's a 3/10 chance.

Complete the following sentence: Success is:
Achieving what you never thought about others.

What would it surprise others to know about you?
That I was a struggling drug addict roaming the streets before I was able to turn my life around and make it to where I'm at today.

Any plans for college? And, if so, what will be your major?
No.
Do you have any favorite bloggers?
No, I just admire people who hustle.

Has your age been an obstacle or an asset when it comes to doing business with others?
Yes, I have more to prove and I have less time to do it. If I can't prove to someone "I'm the sh%%" within 10-15 seconds, I've potentially lost a good contact.

What's your favorite motivational quote?
"Ain't no rules around here, we just trying to accomplish something" - Thomas Edison

What's the most money you've ever made online in one month?
Not sure honestly, I don't really track my months of income. Income doesn't really phase me, it's the people I've helped that I care the most about.

.... But, I'll be honest - the money is a nice touch ;)

  1. Wow! This young man should be not only be applauded, but should be featured in various media to show that not all young, black men are gang bangers and drug dealers.
