What do real estate and personal development mean to each other? Everything, if you’re a successful agent, or an entrepreneur or anyone seeking to better oneself. That’s why Glenn Sanford, CEO and Founder of eXp World Holdings, Inc. was so eager to have the opportunity to purchase SUCCESS Enterprises and its related media properties, including SUCCESS magazine.
“This is an exciting day for both the real estate and personal development industries,” said eXp World Holdings CEO, Chairman and Founder Glenn Sanford. “By combining eXp’s cutting-edge technology and passion for education with SUCCESS’s established personal development platform, we are well-positioned to take personal development to the next level. This acquisition fortifies our business model of providing a better value proposition for agents, while expanding our reach. Together, SUCCESS and eXp will inspire agents and entrepreneurs to be the best version of themselves.”
SUCCESS is a U.S.-based business magazine that has been around since 1897. It offers content aimed mainly at those in sales or who are entrepreneurial, covering topics of personal and professional development through inspiration, motivation and training. Also included in the acquisition are the SUCCESS media properties including SUCCESS.com, SUCCESS newsletters, podcasts, digital training courses and affiliated social media accounts across platforms.
Sanford will serve as CEO of SUCCESS Enterprises, Josh Ellis will continue as SUCCESS magazine’s editor-in-chief, and Don Hobbs, who is a real estate coach and trainer with more than 25 years of experience, will join as president of SUCCESS Enterprises, leading strategy and brand expansion.
eXp plans to blend SUCCESS’s established media channels and eXp’s immersive 3D Virbela technology to develop on-demand personal development content, including digital coaching and courses. The cloud-based platform is expected to launch in 2021.
