1. Hello Attila, we’re thrilled to have this opportunity interview you. Please tell us a little bit about your background and how you ended up choosing your field.
Thank you for doing this interview. I’ve been an entrepreneur all my life. I remember when I was 15 years old I started a web design company and got clients from all over the world. This was during the dot com boom in the 1990s. From there, I went on to organize festivals and after running out of money and not having many options, went back to the internet and computers and discovered affiliate marketing. It allowed me to work from anywhere as long as there was an internet connection, and gave me the freedom to manage my own time. I started a blog in 2013 named iAmAttila where I share amazing tips and tricks on how I do what I do. I even wrote a book named “From Zero to Super Affiliate” that became a bestseller on Amazon the Marketing section.
2. What made you take the leap into entrepreneurship?
My parents were always entrepreneurs and I didn’t like working for someone else. Hated having to come in at 8AM and stay till 5PM everyday when I worked at Netnation. By doing my own thing I can work whenever I want, and I still work hard just no one will be mad if I take long breaks during the day.
3. How do you differentiate yourself from others in your field?
I like to be honest, to the point and blunt. If something rocks, I’ll confirm. If something sucks, I’ll be very vocal about it without much care.
4. Who is your hero and why?
Elon Musk, he is the richest guy in the world and he doesn’t care. He still talks to everyone on the street, has no ego and works harder than all of his employees and loves it. He’s an amazing role model, a true nerd that Inspires me to be me; and I’m happy that I love nerdy shit, and working and learning new stuff too – and it’s not a bad thing like the jocks in high school used to make me feel in the past. Afterall, everyone wishes they could be as RICH and COOL as ELON MUSK!
5. What do you do to recharge when you are feeling drained?
I like to go for a walk, BBQ, watch a good movie with the family and just hang out and do DIY projects.
6. How do you think technology will affect the way we do business 10 years from now?
Automation and technology is killing jobs and peoples livelihoods. Unfortunately mundane tasks aren’t very employable and 10 years from now a lot of jobs will be replaced by robots and or software tech. I see this as a HUGE threat to society because doing ‘high level work’ requires a lot of effort, work and of course knowledge and brains. Sadly the fact of the matter is, most people are lazy, they hate to learn new things and just want to do the bare minimum so they can have their ‘fun’ doing ‘fun’ things.
7. What is your business all about?
My company iAmAffiliate is a training school for people interested in learning affiliate marketing. Inside the members area we help people master Facebook Ads, Learn Google Adwords, figure out how to run campaigns on Taboola, Outbrain and other native sources. It’s probably the best investment anyone can make that’s interested in learning affiliate marketing. It’s a great investment and it’s only $50 a month.
