    Smile Video of Evening Magazine Interview
    Hi Everyone,

    Our interview on Evening Magazine Seattle aired last night! For those of you who weren't able to see it, which is pretty much everyone outside the Pacific Northwest, you can see the video on YouTube at:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nalM8Rp5ags

    I should let you know that there were a couple of errors in the story. We do not make $600k-$900k each month, as the host stated at the end of the segment. We've generated up to $900k in sales in a single month (12/05), but we've never made $900k in commissions. We are currently donating 10% of our profits or $1000, whichever is larger, to charity each month. If we ever do make $900k in a single month, we'll be making a very large donation to charity and I'll be taking a long vacation! 8-)

    Hope everything is going great. Take care!

    How cool Todd! It was great to see you and your family and hear about what you've all been through. GAWD - Meanwhile, you're all happy and beaming. That's the best part. :-)

    So how did the show effect your stats? heh heh heh --- gotta be a nice rush of traffic.
    Peace,

    What a wonderful family interview! Nice piece that aired - glad to see it wasn't the normal 15 second story and that they took the time to cover some details and to show lots of footage of you, your wife and children!

    Todd, thanks for posting and sharing!

    That is a great interview Todd, and even better that everyone including Alex is doing better. I like when she said 'looking forward to her birthday', that's what counts.

    Thanks Guys!

    We really liked the interview, but my wife and I had to laugh when the reporter said in the voiceover:

    "Andrea laughs to mask her pain."

    Considering how much my wife laughs, she must be in a lot of pain! Seriously having a sense of humor and a positive outlook really helped us get through all that happened to us. During Alex's 2nd transplant she suffered a Grand Mal seziure, which took away her speech for a couple of weeks. Well most of her speech. Even during the seizure, every time she burped she would say excuse me! During a really terrible time, that cracked us up every time. Obviously politeness is located outside of the speech center in the brain!

    Hope everyone is doing great. Take care.

    That's a wonderful story Todd! It's great to see affiliates who are in business for more than just greed. This really says a lot for for the affiliate industry. You've got a beautiful family and I wish you all the best!!

    Wow.

    Todd, your family is beautiful.

    Your story is inspiring in both a personal and professional way.

    It's nice to hear how this business has dramatically affected you and your family in a positive way, as well as your ability to reach out to others who share some of your personal experiences.

    I hope the link to the video stays intact for many years to come - it would be a nice testimony for those folks who are trying to make an honest living in affiliate marketing, as well as those who are feeling discouraged.

    I personally plan to send the video link to my friends and family in an effort to explain why I love what I do! And, why I often feel such a personal connection to ABW members.

    Thanks for sharing the video Todd!

    Todd,
    I'm so glad everything has worked out for you and your family, there's nothing I hate more than to see a child in pain or being hurt. Thank god both of your kids are ok. If there's ever anything I can do for you, just let me know. Makes me want to go home and hug my kids.

    Oh Todd - that is such a wonderful piece! I know that I have told you this before, but I wish I had known about donating my umbilical cord when I had each of my kids. To be able to help save a life by such an easy thing to do is an amazing thing.

    I know you are very proud of your family (as you should be!). Such a great story!

    Thanks to all of you for the nice feedback! The response to the story has been overwhelmingly positive, and that's definitely put a smile on my face.

    Right now I'm still trying to answer all of the email that came my way as a result of the story including quite a few people who want to know how I'm making $600k-$900k each month! My guess is they're pretty disappointed when they find out that's my sales totals, not commissions. ;-)

    Hope everything is going great. Take care.
