One year and 77 interviews later, has positioned itself as a major force in the self-help field.

It’s 6:55pm on a Tuesday evening at the home of Andy O'Bryan, co-founder of Andy asks his wife Lisa, two children Natalie and Trevor, and Lily, his Welsh Corgi puppy, to keep the noise level down a bit for the next half hour or so.

They know the drill by now. This is Andy’s 77th phone interview with the elite names in personal and professional development. This time around it’s with Ruben Gonzalez, Olympic medalist, author and motivational speaker.

Over the past 12 months has quietly but persistently established itself as a major player in the self help industry. O’Bryan’s partner on the venture is Josh Hinds, who already established his website,, years ago as a motivation portal for personal growth articles and advice, continuing to educate and enlighten site visitors daily.

What makes unique is the ad-lib conversations that develop during the interviews. The sessions average 20 minutes in length and have a habit of going off-script, in directions that the mentors may not be used to. O’Bryan’s tendency to follow up with off-the-cuff observations lend themselves to more lively exchanges than are found in the standard online interview fare. This is all to the benefit of AudioMotivation’s members, who are able to download these interviews to their hard drive, mp3 players or CD-Roms, so they’re not tied down to a computer screen.

“We’ve had people say they listen to these sessions while they are exercising, doing the dishes, walking the dog, driving, and other situations where a computer isn’t necessary,” explains O’Bryan from his home office in Oriskany, New York.

O’Bryan and Hinds have been able to secure high caliber interviews through a “networking domino theory,” as O’Bryan puts it. “We’ll interview someone who knows three famous speakers or authors who also are interested, then those three each know three others and so on.” This resulted in AudioMotivation landing legends like Tom Hopkins and the upcoming sessions scheduled with Brian Tracy, Bill Bailey and Charlie “Tremendous” Jones. sees its second year as one of exponential membership growth, through a combination of word of mouth, joint ventures and grass roots marketing tactics. “This site has taken on a life of its own, and we’re just getting started,” O’Bryan said.

As for the members, a fresh batch of testimonials come in each day from people who have seen their lives improved through membership.
