When entrepreneurs find themselves struggling, finding success can be as simple as starting simple, sticking to your core values and going back to the basics.
That’s why this months 1AutomationWiz.com Superstar Merchant is Michael Angier.
As an entrepreneur, president and founder of Success Networks International, Michael started his entrepreneurial mind-set as young seven-year-old boy with a dream of being successful.
And he did that selling coat hangers. Yes, coat hangers.
Now to some, that might seem like a strange start in the world of business, but not to Michael.
At seven, I noticed that when people moved, they often thew out lot’s of coat hangers. I’d pick them up for free and flip them for a quick profit.
Earning money like that at such a young age sparked my drive and goal of being a successful businessperson,” says Angier.
The tips that Michael Angier has to offer he shares with thousands of people who want to know the secret to success.
His focus: creating long-term success for businesses by encouraging them to build a momentum which can take time as well as encouraging others to embrace technology to help build business.

Michael focuses on the nitty-gritty of business: The solid principles of success.
While many strategies and technology is always changing, the same principles of business have been in practice for hundreds of years.
What we do is all about the evergreen success principles that haven’t changed, rather than tactics and strategies that did,” Angier said. “It’s easy to transition and adapt but still be teaching the same principles that have always been in place.
Success Networks International, SuccessNet.org, is an association that operates globally that focuses on helping organizations and individuals operate at their personally and professional best. Michael knows this first-hand as a speaker, an entrepreneur, a coach, a student and a family man.
For 35 years, he has focused on teaching seminars to students wanting to learn more about how to succeed. The topics that are key to success are those that include personal development, goal setting and motivation and looking for innovative ways to create a wave as a businessperson.
We might talk about principles in a different way than somebody might have 25, 50 or 100 years ago but the success principles are just as relevant today as they were then, Angier said.
While selling coat hangers at a young age in Georgia, Angier also began in agribusiness and farming. Eventually founded a magazine in Vermont called “Creating Excellence: Vermont’s Journal for People Growing in Business,” that was distributed to all of the businesses in the state.
SuccessNet.org was born as Michael continued to proactively distribute his content to help business people in Vermont and began his web business when the first Internet browsers came out.
It was then that he realized he could disseminate his knowledge and experience to more people with a lower overhead than publishing his magazine off-line. Today SuccessNet.org has subscribers followers, and association members in over 140 countries during its 17-years.
Though he is referred to as an internet marketer, Angier doesn’t consider himself one. Instead he prefers the label of publisher, coach, and business philosopher. An even better term for him would be an ‘information marketer.’
If I were to take a nutshell of what SuccessNet has really been about for 17 years it’s really about designing and creating and living your ideal life in business, said Angier.
That’s why Michael offers training and seminars including a course called Your Core Values and an annual conferences called the SuccessNet Summit.
As one of our very first clients way back in 2001, Michael ‘s used 1AutomationWiz to help grow his business using our email marketing and shopping cart software.
