One of the techniques I use to send my message and to convert clients is a success story. Nothing beats the human interest, connection, and emotion one can get from a story about challenges that lead to victory. With this in mind, today I’m going to share a success story example. I’ll be sharing a story about a man who built on self-success despite his speech challenges. He went on to become a powerful speaker who made $71,000 in sales at one of his first ever live events.
The Success Story Example To Inspire You
Every time I am asked for a success story, one man comes to mind: Alex Moscow. Alex started with me during the early days of my business. He was a marketing consultant. He was 21 years old and didn’t know anything about life or business. I told him to come work with me, and he did.
Alex trained with me and helped me grow my business. He was with me when I cracked seven figures in my business. Alex learned a lot about sales, training with me and being part of a company. He saw the persistence that I had as an entrepreneur, and he was in that space, absorbing growth and persistence.
One day he decided to leave, and we both agreed it was time. He went out and started his own business, and he became a coach and a speaker. Does it sound he’s already a success story? Not yet. Read on.
The Man Who Persisted
The thing that I love about this success story is that Alex has a stutter. Here’s a guy who is around the coaching and speaking space where people speak for a living, and he has a stutter. He became a master at sales training in my company, and then one day he’s like, “I think I need to go on my next journey in my life.”
“What do you want to do?”
“I don’t know.”
I said, “I think you do.”
He went, “What do you mean?”
I said, “I think you want to be a coach and a speaker. You just haven’t admitted it to yourself yet.”
He said, “All right,” but he was pretty uncertain.
Five to six months later, he started his coaching business. Within 90 to 120 days of when he started, he went out and launched his first program and got 10 clients to join for $5,000 each. Within two months, he went out and launched his first seminar with nine or ten people signed up.

He Is Making Things Happen
Now here’s why Alex is one of my business motivational stories. He’s a guy who can’t speak and has a stutter. He gets in the flow of speaking, and his stutter sometimes disappears. It comes back a little bit. But then, there he was on the stage in front of nine to ten people speaking for two and a half days, and he made $71,000 in sales.
Today, he’s brought in seven figures to his business over the last several years of running a coaching business. He’s an amazing person who’s inspiring people, because most people are afraid to go out and live their passion. They’re afraid to go after the dream. Here’s a guy who essentially has a disability, which is stuttering, but he’s turned it into his strength. He’s turned it into a weapon of power to make a difference in the world, and I admire that.
There are many ways to help other people succeed. For example, I can recommend self-success books to keep you motivated. However, the best way to succeed is still to give you a personal experience that tells you that you can reach your dreams whatever the challenges. You just need to be persistent and learn as much as you can. Alex’s story is my favorite success story, because I admire him and what he’s done. I’m proud I was able to have that impact on somebody, as well as he to his audience.
