Success is a business magazine in the United States published by Success Media, a company owned by VideoPlus L.P.. According to the company, the magazine is "designed specifically to serve the growing entrepreneur", and the magazine's primary focus is in providing information and content in the areas of home-based and small business and self-improvement.


Success was established in 1898 by Orison Swett Marden[1] as a personal-achievement magazine. During its formative years, Success benefited from the literary contributions of several renowned authors and thought leaders, including Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone[2] and Og Mandino.


Success was acquired by VideoPlus L.P. in 2007[3] and has since been published under Success Media. VideoPlus, established in 1987,[4] produces educational and marketing materials for the direct selling industry, as well as sponsored and custom publications.

The April/May 2008 issue marked the relaunch of Success, with the magazine returning to its roots as a publication for entrepreneurs. Success moved to a monthly print schedule in September 2008. Darren Hardy serves as the magazine's publisher.[5]

Online edition[edit] is the online component of the magazine, featuring content from the magazine, additional exclusive web content, a personal-development blog and links to the magazine's social media efforts.
