The Aha!NOW Chat With Enstine Muki [Interview]
How do you assess if you are successful with your personal branding? I’ll give you some examples.
When you think of computers, you know it’s Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. Philip Kotler will come to your mind if you think of marketing.
But when you think of money making, it’s Enstine Muki!
Yes, today’s guest at the Aha!NOW chat is none other than the popular money blogger, Enstine Muki.
He is known for his innovative and intelligent money making ideas and strategies.
He is also a popular blogger, who blogs at EnstineMuki.com.
Enstine is no stranger to Aha!NOW and its community.
His Aha!NOW guest post on the killer way to make money blogging early this year was very popular.
Since then, he has scaled heights and scored success as a money blogger.
Apart from that, he has been a regular visitor to Aha!NOW and has always contributed his wise views on life matters that are discussed here.
Not only does he share his money making tips, he also makes plugins for bloggers.
Many of us use his MyCommentAuthors plugin at the beginning of each month. He also created a BroadedNet plugin to help bloggers get traffic without search engines and social media.
So, here I welcome, Enstine Muki – as the special guest of this month’s interview. And, without any further delay, let’s proceed with the interview.
Interview With Enstine Muki
Q1: Enstine, you were the first guest blogger of Aha!NOW at the beginning of this year, and now you’re an interviewee at the end of this year. How does it feel?
Enstine: An amazing experience. I’m sort of the Beginning and the End. 😉
Seriously, I feel really honored you know. Aha!NOW is a super community and to be given the first and the last places in a year raises the level of my excitement.
Q2: You are now recognized as a smart, brilliant, and genius Internet marketer. How and when did you learn the skills of moneymaking? How has your education contributed to it?
Enstine: This just fuels and propels me to the next level of responsibility. You know when your community looks up to you for one or more things; you have to be up to the task.
My initial attempt at making money online was early 2009 but I failed so bad that I abandoned and only returned in 2011 with the creation of EasyRetweet.
In the past few years of blogging, I have worked like an ass. I have read a lot and my brain is always at work. I try to see how I can use anything to help the next blogger.
While a few of these are succeeding, I must mention here that I have failed in many.
Q3: You were not a blogger initially but you worked on various aspects related to computers and the Internet since 2004. Tell us briefly about what all you did before you created EasyReTweet.
Enstine: I have been a PC technician since 2001. I remember those early days on Windows 95, 98 and Millennium.
I however got into Web design in 2004, working on Macromedia Dreamweaver 3.0. I remember my first free site hosted by geocities in those early days.
Later on that year, I got into PHP and have worked on a couple of applications for local consumption. In my entire life as a web designer/developer, I have created over 200 websites. I co-founded NjangiHost with a friend for local web hosting.
I created my Content Management System called NoStress CMS which I used on most of the sites I created. Drawing my inspiration from Joomla, this was going to be the first open source CMS from Africa. Well, I abandoned this because of lack of support from the community.
EasyRetweet was my first most successful online project.
Q4: Okay, getting a bit personal here. You got married before your big projects came on the scene. So, probably you are a successful man with a great woman behind you. 🙂
Tell us something about your family and you as a family person. How do you maintain the right balance between your personal and professional life?
Enstine: First, I’m the last child of my mom. We are 7 so I grew up being loved by my brothers and sisters. Some of them still think I’m that mom’s baby. 😉
Life is good with a pretty and caring wife and 2 kids. I make life so sweet for my kids when I’m around. They also know daddy is the strongest man on earth. 😉
I have time for my family and work cannot cheat me on that. My wife sometimes used to be annoyed because my kids and I often turn the bed room into a serious play ground.
While there is much work to be done, I make sure I create time for the family for which I work. My Wednesdays are set aside for my family. While I do work online on this day, a greater portion of is for my family.
Q5: Talking more about your professional life, EasyReTweet was what brought you closer to bloggers and the blogging world, isn’t it? Later, you also created many other plugins. Which of your application or plugin has been most successful and why?
Enstine: Yeah you are right! EasyReTweet brought me closer to bloggers. 😉
While CashDonator has been in the market before MyCommentAuthors and BroadedNet, I think these last 2 are doing well.
I love the feedback I get from both BroadedNet and MyCommentAuthors users. They both are striving to provide solutions to the main problems faced by any online business – traffic. Given that they are free to use, they are really getting more attention from the industry.
Q6: What tips would you give to bloggers and Internet marketers, who wish to be popular and successful? What are your basic money making secrets?
Enstine: If you want to be popular and successful, go out and network with bloggers in your niche.
The simplest way to do this is to engage on their blogs (comment and share their posts on social media), talk about them on your blog, link out to them, tell others how they are awesome, etc.
Of course, you must be able to provide content that will attract them. Kick out mediocrity and be professional. There is no way people will associate with you if you are not up to their taste.
The most exceptional thing I have even done as a blogger is feature great bloggers like you on my blog, Harleena.
I can’t think of any other post that gives me such excitement. The point is, this has turned to be the blog posts that pull the highest referral traffic to my blog.
NB: Here is a blog post I wrote on how to create a popular blog in 90 days.
My most basic money making secret is that I try to monetize my efforts. Do you know I make money from the free MyCommentAuthors plugin? That plugin has generated close to a 1000 dollars.
The best and most basic thing you should do is learn to monetize your works. I don’t mean annoying your audience with money making objects. There must be a way to do it without raising dust.
Affiliate marketing, selling your own products, Adsense, etc are all ways to make money but there is no guarantee. Having 5k visitors a day does not translate to money.
The only secret is in being able to monetize your works. You need to know the right spots to touch. In this free report, I shared something that is exceptional.
After working closely with some advertisers, I came to understand that high traffic is not enough to make money online. There is more to it and I touched the various point in the report.
A friend shared his Google Analytics stats with me. I was so shocked when this guy told me with over 5k daily readers; he was unable to break above $500/month from his blog.
After looking closely, I understood where his obstacle was. 2 weeks after I gave him some hidden tips, he made his first $200 from a single deal.
So if you don’t know how to monetize what you do, you may be doing the right thing but not knowing how to turn it to money.
Q7: You’re a great networker and marketer. You’re skilled at relationship building too and have a good outreach. How do you make it possible and what are you quick relationship building tips for all bloggers and Internet markers?
Enstine: The first thing to do if you want to build relationships is to make yourself likable. No matter what you do to attract people, if you are surrounded with mediocrity, you won’t be able to build good relationships.
Invest in premium and good looking blog theme. While this will not guarantee success, poor themes can easily throw off your visitors.
The second thing is to do things that will attract others on your blog. Use your blog and social media to get them around. I know moving to their blogs to drop comments and share their articles work quite great.
But what I have experienced that work quite better is when you give people exposure on your blog. Don’t be selfish.
Promote people and they will like you. Feature them and their articles. Link out to their articles. Tell your readers how awesome those other bloggers are.
Don’t just link out. Do a descriptive linking. See this article how this is done.
Q8: In today’s world, people are mostly focused on making money without caring much about the ethics and morals that go with it. What are your views on it?
We all know that beyond a certain limit, money doesn’t contribute much to a person’s happiness in life. What is your concept of happiness and what do you do to be happy?
Enstine: Money is not everything. That’s why I have rejected some very juicy advertising proposals for my blog. Money has to be clean. That means the way in which we make it has to be with respect for others.
I see happiness as a state of mind that influences your behavior. There are lots of things that can affect ones state of mind but if you develop yourself, you will be able to guard your mind diligently against any negative external infiltration.
Generally, people are happy when they have money. When they are earning from their efforts, they are happy. When there is peace, folks are happy. When everyone is in good health, there is always happiness.
Now, the absence of these good things can mean the absence of happiness. Sadness can cripple your effort and even bring your family down. But you can manage sadness to produce happiness.
My way forward is that I refuse to see anything that will cause my happiness to evaporate. In other words, I live expecting the better. I’m optimistic in everything in life.
When I don’t have money today, I know I will tomorrow.
Q9: What is your source of inspiration and motivation to be successful in life? How do you keep yourself going – what’s your potion or magic formula to keep striving for success in life?
Enstine: I have a library with 66 books. I read them and they inspire me a lot. It’s the Bible. It’s the book of books. It has all I need.
The best part is, it gives me the hope, the motivation and the energy to move ahead. I know something ahead is better and I keep pressing to it.
I’m someone who believes everything and every event has a message to pass through. Sometimes I get bombarded with post ideas because I try to interpret almost everything I see.
Q10: Finally, what do you prefer calling yourself – a programmer, an entrepreneur, or a blogger? Any new plans for the next year and would we see you in a new avatar? 🙂
Enstine: I love blogging, sincerely so I get excited to be called one. I also create business and move on. That makes me a serial entrepreneur. I don’t really call myself a programmer.
My coming into PHP is out of excitement and that’s all I know. I don’t know what other languages look like. 😉
I have a new platform to be launched late January or early Feb 2015. I keep it for the moment. 😉
New avatar? Probably yes. 😉
Bonus Question: Ah.. here’s one bonus question for beautifully answering all these questions!
As I mentioned at the start that you were my guest in January 2014 and now in December 2014. What positive changes and difference in experience do you observe? What do you think about the Aha!NOW Blog Community (ABC)?
Enstine: Positive changes? The community, Harleena. It’s an important addition that makes the platform a warm place. It has grown from readers talking with you to readers talking among themselves and you.
You know this new community feature was launched just at the time my new platform BroadedNet was made public too. This kept me quite busy with little time to blog-hop.
However, the charm of Aha!NOW is such that I can’t completely keep away from it. First, the quality of the contents, then the friendliness and support I personally get from you and Vinay. It’s just so amazing to belong to such a community where you are given an important seat.
I think in 2015, I’ll be one of the most active on that community as it’s proving to be an unfailing networking tool. Where else will I be if not on a platform that will help me network with other bloggers?
You may connect with Enstine at Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
Winding it up
How did you all like the tête-à-tête with the MMM – the Money Maker Muki? 🙂
The Aha!NOW chats are always a bit different, but I guess you loved it and got worthwhile take aways from this interview.
My takeaway is that hard work, smartness, and determination pays. Always treat your failures as stepping stones, and keep thinking or planning ahead.
But no matter how much time you devote to your business and passion to be successful, never neglect your family, because money is not everything.
If you want to develop relationships, make friends, discuss topics, seek help, get traffic, promote your blog, and more – then join the ABC.

3. Connect and form a Syndiicte of your fellow bloggers
Thanks for highlighting them. I would also suggest building list another important pointer.
Hello Enstine and Harleena Mam,
Enstine, I’ve just finished reading your interview at Oloyede’s blog. It was an awesome interview and again here is a mind blowing interview of yours, I am reading.
I had read your guest post earlier last year. That time, I was new to Aha-Now Blog.
There is no doubt that you are a great inventor and invented such great plugins like MyCommentAuthors and BroadedeNet.
Sounds good that you’re the 1st guest blogger and last interviewee, last year at Aha Now. This is also good to read about your past career stories.
You have wonderful and happy family. God bless you and your lovely family.
I just loved the sentence you told here” When I don’t have money today, I know I will tomorrow”. This is very true and inspiring one.
Looking forward to see your new platform. I am really excited for this, Money Maker Muki. Lol
Thanks to both of you for this worthy interview. I really enjoyed reading here.
Have an awesome and happy new year both of you. Enjoy your day! 🙂
Hi Enstine, How wonderful to have you here at Harleena’s place! She is very wise to use you as her 2014 bookends for her blog!
Although I’ve known you through the blogosphere, I was thrilled to read even more about you here and see the picture of your lovely family.
I also am impressed with how badly you failed to make money online at first. We really do learn from our failures, don’t we? In fact, I’m thinking that you wouldn’t have been as successful if your first try at making money online worked. What do you think?
I also like what you said about themes. You’re right, a professional theme doesn’t guarantee success, but a bad theme can guarantee failure.
Best of luck to you in 2015, Enstine. I hope you achieve even more success!
good to have Enstine here today, not as a commentator but a guest of Aha-now, isn’t it great? 🙂
It is good to know more about Enstine and the journey he has passed through. He has indeed done great for himself as a blogger and an entrepreneur.
Ha bro, you do have a cute family
Thanks for sharing the inside of Enstine, it was lovely reading it. Do have a wonderful weekend ahead…
What a fantastic interview Harleena. Thank you for introducing Enstine to us!
Enstine, you have a beautiful family!!!! What a great joy for me to learn of how you care for their every need. So many business owners neglect their families to their own detriment.
Reading the article not only made me feel I know you better but left me grateful to have you as a friend.
When I first jumped seriously into blogging in June of this year you were one of the first who connected with me and championed what I was doing in helping business owners and entrepreneurs learn and understand how the Internet works. That’s why I named it “Unveil the Web.”
You really are a very gifted, smart and amazing person. I look forward to a very long friendship and business relationship with you!
Have a great weekend Enstine and Harleena. Merry Christmas!!!
~ Don Purdum
Hi Harleena and Enstine
This is indeed a great thing to know that, the beginning of the year you had a wonderful post with this gentleman called 3M and at the closing of the same year you end with that wonderful person called Enstine I had the opportunity to meet 3M this year and had been to his place several times and had wonderful conv. with him too! Indeed he deserved to be here at both times, the selection indeed is great Harleena and Vinay. His new products this year too is wonderful and many are benefited by using it above all his new venture Broadednet is indeed another spinning wheel for traffic LOL
Keep rocking Enstine Keep rocking!
Waiting for the new widger/gadget to come along!!
May your talent be exhibited in the years ahead

Thanks Harleena for sharing a bit more about this wonderful personality,
Of course the family too is lovely May God bless them
Have great time ahead @admin Harleena and @vinzen TC 🙂
Hi Harleena and Enstine,
As usual Harleena, your posts, interviews etc. are always filled with great people and great advice.
The recurring theme that is most important here that I’m hearing here consistently is go out and interact with bloggers in your niche.
I hear it here and everyone so I’m going to work on that for sure.
Great interview, valuable info.
Thank you Harleena for providing a great guest poster who’s info is valuable.
Hi Harleena and Enstine,
Awesome interview!! Thanks Harleena for having Enstine here!!
I haven’t known Enstine from long and this was a great opportunity to know him better.
Enstine is a true leader. A leader who extend the help to those who are new and struggling is a true leader and I was so encouraged by your success and I was so happy to read that your source of motivation and encouragement is the library of the 66 books. Indeed, that’s the best source.
Thanks Harleena for this great opportunity to learn more about Enstine as the special guest of this month! BTW, Loved the picture of his beautiful family!
I look forward to the new year ahead to learn more from both of you great friends!
Thanks Harleena so much for sharing and thanks Enstine for an awesome interview. Have a great rest of the week !! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
It’s been awesome since we met. I can’t clearly remember where we met but since meeting, more good things have happened.
Thanks for all your support, sharing and commenting my posts, supporting my projects, etc. Each time I visit your blog, I get really fueled and with broadedNet being active on your blog, I get even more excited.
Thanks for the beautiful words in the comment. One thing is sure, there are better days ahead 😉
Hi Ma’am Herleena,
It’s feels good to see Enstine Muki here on your blog. Enstine is one of those bloggers that I believe are making a difference in the blogsphere, trust me, I’ve read his blog posts and they are sure worth it.
Here I’ve learnt a lot, and also written down somethings that I know will surely help me start my new year (2015).
Enstine is a Super Dad (lol) every child requires that awesome momment with their dad. 🙂
Thanks for sharing Ma’am, and do have a wonderful week ahead, you both.
I remember I was said to be MAD (Making a Difference) and you just mentioned it here.
Harleena too accepted to be MAD because she really is. I’m glad she gave me this opportunity to say a bit more about me.
Thanks for your nice words man. Don’t forget there are better days ahead 😉
Excellent post. I am motivated more now than ever to take my blog to the next level.
Hi Jason, Good luck and thanks for dropping a comment 😉
Hello harleena and Enstine,
I feel fortunate to get these tips from experts like you. I get motivated by Seeing your enthusiasm regarding blogging which gives me a thrust to work harder. Enstine is seriously a gem in this field and I have been reading his posts for the last few months. This interview has brought to light many unknown facts about him. The thing I liked most is his love for quality content and the fact that he believes that -‘money is not everything’. Very few people today lives with this ideology
Thanks for being a loyal reader and for making an encouraging comment.
You know no one will come to your blog the second time if you did not capture his interest on his first visit. Quality content is one of the things that make people to stick to your blog and signup to your list.
Thanks once more for being part of this conversation today. Do have a wonderful weekend ahead 😉
It’s exciting to know you used Geocities too before it was taken down. I remember my first site there (just a few pages) fetched me about $20. It was such an excitement 😉
Thanks for being such a wonderful friend brother. You share wonderfully exceptional content on your blog. Everyone reading your blog knows this. It’s hard not to be attracted to you
Keep up the good work bro. There are better days ahead 😉
Hi Harleena Mam,
Thanks for the interview with Enstine. I just came to know about Enstine after reading your post. He is a great and friendly person. The main thing Enstine explain each and every question more than the expectations.
Thanks a lot Enstine sir, You are a great motivation for all new bie and pro bloggers.
Hi Enstine and Harleena
You both are my good friends and I felt myself in the discussion while you were chatting in the whole post.
Thanks a lot Harleena for featuring another wonderful guy at your blog and this post helped me a lot to learn more about him. Never knew before he first tried geocities as it was so popular those days. I did create a simple website at it was feeling myself at sky after watching what I had created online as my first attempt.
I generally observed many techie geniuses who started a blog and then never looked back because the value they offer at their blog does have the addition of their technical expertise also.
I still remember after stepping in to the blogging niche Enstine was the first pro blogger who mentioned me in one of his posts and that helped me a lot to be noticed by his wonderful blog community.
Thanks for sharing this post and looking forward to such more inspirational and equally very informative posts.
I have heard so many postive things about you and after reading your interview I clearly understand why. I love that you put family first. It’s easy for someone to forget about himself and his family while focusing on his career and money. Excellent point and a good reminder that if we don’t put family first nothing else matters if their not happy.
I agree that happiness is a state of mind. And I would add that it’s also comes from external things like money and cars. But joy comes from within. It comes from understanding that the book of books, the Bible, gives wisdom to all who ask.
It”s obvious you speak with wisdom and experience. I couldn’t help but to notice you use the word mediocrity a couple of times. That tells me it’s very important we don’t settle for being average but to look for ways to challenge ourselves.
It was a pleasure reading this interview with you. I came away with something I can grow on.
So good to read from you today. I’m glad this interview is bringing us 😉
Thanks for those words of encouragement. Family is posterity so it will be a shame not to give it its first place 😉
We have a lot to share together bro so let’s keep it warm 😉
Hi Harleena ji,
It was very inspiring Article for bloggers like us and I enjoyed every aspect of this Interview with Enstine.
I would say thanks for that you have offered us such a useful tips which help us a lot to proceed in improve direction.
Thanks for the engagement Amit
I hope we connect more 😉
So great to be in Harleena’s blog. I enjoyed this interview as it was to good to the know the awesome blogger and motivator. Your tips on blogging success were great. I also enjoyed your tips on making money with a blog.
You are right that we must be smart, hard working and creative when it comes to making money. I was surprised when you said that having a lot of traffic does not translate to making money. This was so revealing.
Thanks Harleena for inviting Enstine again to share his great insight. Have a great week.
Thanks for the engagement on this interview bro 😉
Your words really encourage me to move on.
I know we have better days ahead so let’s keep the relationship active 😉
Hi Harleena and Enstine,
Gosh, it’s been a long time since I have “talked” to Enstine. I was still using my WFHConcepts Twitter handle when we were last tweeting :).
Hi Enstine, it’s so good to see that you have been blessed with great success! When I read what you said about making money the clean way, it gave me comfort in knowing that the good guys really do come in first :).
This was a great interview Harleena. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself Enstine! Wishing you much success in 2015 :).
Hey Corina where have you been 😉 ?
I’m glad Harleena is bringing us together again in this interview.
How is blogging going my dear friend? IS there anything new? BTW, I’ll be off to your blog shortly after this 😉
Hi Harleena and Enstine,
Love this interview and what a great way to close out the year. Enstine is someone I also look up to because he just really knows his stuff.
I love the picture of his family, what a great looking bunch. The kids are adorable and yep Enstine, you have a beautiful looking wife too. I recall you saying she’s the most beautiful creature on earth.
Thanks for sharing more of what you’ve been involved in over the years, what you currently have going and now we learn you have a new platform on the horizon to be released in early 2015. I’m sure if you’re behind it then it’s going to be great.
You always share great information with us Enstine and eager to help those who are wanting to move forward and make the most from their blogs. Your suggestions on how to go about that are spot on, I can definitely vouch for that. When it comes to tips on how we all can improve our income producing methods we all perk up and listen.
Thanks again Harleena for wrapping up your series this year with the only and only Enstine. I think you couldn’t have chosen a better candidate for this series.
You two have a wonderful week and thanks again for all you do for the blogging community.
You make such great comments every where you go. Thanks for the nice words. I’m really fueled up.
Folks should know how strategic you are in what I have become today in blogging. A lot of what I do especially in engagement and relationship building are from your brain. By reading your blog and product, one is bound to grow.
I know 2015 has a lot more. It’s going to be another year of wonders. I’ll surely be kicking it off with another platform. I just like going this way with products to help my community.
Thanks for all you’ve done to affect me positively Adrienne. One thing is sure – there are better days ahead 😉
I’m truly touched Enstine, thank you so much. Just wanted to stop back by and let you know. You are to kind but I’m so happy to know you.
So great to meet you Enstine! I’ve seen your face here at Aha now Community and it’s great to hear your outlook on life and your business. I could learn from you about $$ on my website 🙂 The pictures of you and your family are beautiful! I love your positive attitude. Thanks Harleena for a wonderful interview.
Thanks for the motivational comment Lisa.
It will be really interesting if we engage more 😉
So how is blogging going with you?
I enjoyed reading this interview with Enstine. I have just recently come to learn about him and I am very interested in what he says and tells about his journey to successful blogging.
Thank you again for this post.
Thanks for the comment here and on Facebook. We do really have better days ahead so let’s keep the engagement active 😉
However, I was never in touch with Einstein sir before ever but now onwards I have developed some serious interest in your tips. I am sure that I can lead a lot from you in future. Finally, thanks a lot Harleena mam… I am really glad that you shared this interesting stuff with us. I still remember that once I asked you for some seo tips for one of my article and even my readers were really influenced by you so much.
Thanks for commenting on this interview.We are surely going to engage more as from this moment.
Let me hear again from you 😉
Yeah, sure sir. I am really inspired by you now and working hard to reach high. Your tips are now my first priority 😉
I have some questions for both Harleena and Enstine Muki. Can you reveal how much do you earn from blogging? Do you have any other blogs or you depend only on one?
How are you bro?
for now, I have just one blog. I may have more in the years ahead but for now, I have one to manage plus a lot of other things
I’ll be publishing income report on my blog anytime as from 2015. Have you been to my blog before?
Yes brother. Nice website!! Keep it up. I love your writing style, Appreciating! 🙂
Harleena and Enstine, this was a wonderful interview! I enjoyed learning a few new things about Enstine, and I think it’s a great thing that family is put first, happiness before the almighty dollar. Sure, it’s great to make money, but helping others and being happy is priorit number one.
How are you doing my dear friend?
Good to see you here and thanks for the comment 😉
I hope you are set for a wonderful Christmas season 😉
Hi Enstine and Harleena,
The interview is so holistic…touching both the professional and personal aspects so well. Thanks for the awesome efforts you put into each post! Thanks to Enstine too for revealing his true self, he emerges to be such a candid and simple man despite being a luminary! It was so inspiring to read his answers. What struck me most was that he has been ‘working like an ass’, that speaks volumes about his humility and once again emphasises the fact that we can be nowhere without sincere and hard work.
I have heard a lot about you Enstine and seen you at Adrienne’s blog too. She also holds you in high esteem. It was nice to meet you here. Thanks for sharing how you have accomplished such an esteemed position. Have a nice week!
So good to have you here and thanks for this wonderful comment 😉
Yes, Adrienne and Harleena are 2 female bloggers I respect so highly and will always be around them. They dish out a lot of value in their contents so everyone will like to hang around them.
Thanks once more for engaging Balroop. Let’s keep the relationship warm 😉
I already know about Enstine Muki previously as a blogger. But he seems more than that. By reading the interview, I understand he is a successful man in his life as well as his career. He is a great motivator for upcoming bloggers. I wish his continue success.
I already see you started countdown of Marry Christmas in your blog. Have a great weekend 🙂
Thanks for the engagement bro
It’s been great knowing you and interacting with you. I know there are things to discover about each other as time goes on. So let’s keep the connection active.
Do have a wonderful week bro 😉
What a treat to see you here Enstine on AHA Now! Thanks Harleena for this.
I love this interview because I know you as a blogger, but now I get to see the more personal side of you Enstine. You have a wonderful family and put that before everything. That, my friend is the “secret sauce” of success to me.
I have always held you in the highest regard because you share your knowledge freely, you are “yourself” and that shines through. But most of all, you are highly intelligent and know how to make money. You are the forerunner for other people to take your advice and run with it.
Lets face it, we are here to make money…It’s a business and you treat it as such. Your blog hit such a high level of success. It’s amazing!
You never forget people who engage with you and give credit where credit is due.
I am so delighted to know you Enstine. I appreciate all you do.
Wishing you and your beautiful family a happy and healthy new year,
What a beautiful comment 😉
Oh! looks like I lack words 😉
I’m just so excited to hear this and thanks for being a wonderful friend Donna.
The year has been great. My readers have been wonderful and I know 2015 has a bigger package for us.
I certainly will be working more closely with you in Jan. I hope you know what I mean 😉
Thank you so much for giving this interview. It was written clearly and easy for a novice like myself to understand. I have been trying to figure out the best approach to monetizing my blog. Thank you for the suggestions. I, too, use those same 66 books as my guide and respect you, Enstine, for sharing that. I know hard work pays off and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon LOL.
I want to read this again and look at all the links when I have more time.
Once again, thank you.
I’m so excited to connect with you here and thanks for taking time to drop a comment 😉
Yeah, those books can completely change anyone’s life. They keep transforming mine and my family keeps moving ahead, thanks to the steps laid out in it.
I’ll surely be checking out your blog hopping we get on a stronger relationship.
Do have a wonderful week ahead and hope to see you again soon 😉
Hey Harleena and Enstine,
What a coincidence. Enstine wrote a guest post in January of this year and now an interview in December. Was this all planned out 😉
This was a great interview. I knew Enstine was a programmer, but didn’t know he worked in IT. That’s one thing we have in common. But I like the fact that Enstine is a forward thinker. It doesn’t matter what obstacles that get in his way or may get in his way, he already knows the he’s going to conquer them through.
One thing that is great about Enstine is that he balances his life out well. Family should always takes precedence. Money isn’t everything. It helps you live more comfortable as far as materialism, but having a spiritual connection is more important and that comes with family!
But i definitely admire Enstine for all his ideas. He always come up with some unique, intriguing, unprecedented ideas that really fires up our souls as online marketers! I always look forward to his posts!
Thanks Harleena for interviewing Enstine! And thanks Enstine for all the value you give!
Well, I hadn’t planned having his interview on Aha!NOW until the start of this month. But when it occurred to me, I thought that it was really a great idea. So, it was not purely coincidental, but it was a coincidence that I had the idea at the right time. 🙂
I’m glad you liked and enjoyed the interview and Enstine would be here in a while to reply more in detail to you.
Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
Wow! thanks for this comment Sherman. It really fires me up into another layer of excitement 😉
Thanks for the beautiful words. We are moving like a tsunami. It’s difficult to stop us 😉
Have a wonderful week brother
Hi Harleena and Enstine,
I’m glad I could finally make it here. It’s been a very busy day at my blog 🙂
First off I really like that nice picture with your family, Enstine. So nice to see happy family.
I think that you’re a very smart and successful entrepreneur. You know all the ins and outs of modern technology, and you’re that expert SEO too. You’re made for what you do.
I’ve learned a lot from you, and I’m glad I did my own interview of you earlier this year too. Looks like you’re a busy man on demand.
Congratulations on being featured one more time at Harleena’s blog.
Happy Holidays to both of you!
Oh yes…I can understand why it was a busy one! 🙂
I am glad you liked the interview, especially the picture of Enstine with his loved ones. He’d be here in a while to reply to you further.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Holidays to you as well 🙂
It’s wonderful to have you here and thanks for that huge post on your blog mentioning me too. I can understand how this took a huge dose of your time to come up with and having to deal with comments is no small work 😉
Yes, I can’t forget the interview on your blog even if I try to. It was and still remains an excitement trigger each time I think of it.
I thank God for the beautiful family. He (the almighty God) is the source and author of all I have.
One thing is sure Sylviane – there are better days ahead so let’s keep giving 😉
Its really motivating reading this interview, I have been reading Enstine blog for some time and I really love his amazing contribution in my life as far as blogging is concerned.
My advice to people is that life is not as easy as it seems of you have not started.. A failure is not a person who have tried but a failure is a person who have not tried..
A friend once told me that life is like a road, sometimes you meet pot holes, other times you meet traffic but more often, it has never been smooth. I believe your perseverance to succeed is what have brought you so far and now look at where you are. I believe in years to come you would be more than what you are now..
Kudos, what a nice family you have there, My greetings to all of them Enstine ..
It’s been wonderful knowing you bro. I can remember you and your comments on my blog. Life is beautiful with friends like you around isn’t it?
Thanks for sharing your views of life. It’s important to know these things so as to be prepared for the next step in life 😉
Thanks for taking the time to comment man. Do have a wonderful week ahead
Hi Harleena mam and Enstine bro,
It is always interesting to read Enstine’s post. This time chat with Enstine bro. WoW!!
I came to know about Enstine from Aha-now community. Also, got to know about other bloggers from ABC. I should thank Harleena mam for including me in this wonderful community. Happy to be a part of it 🙂
Speaking about Enstine, I always learned something new from his posts. This interview is awesome.Bro, I am happy to know that you also love reading books. I too love books.
Its a wonderful family you have. All the best for your future projects. Keep inspiring us.
I thank god that he introduced me to several good people.
It’s good to know that you are enjoying being a part of the ABC. We are also happy to have you in it too!
Glad that you liked the interview. Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
Thanks for connecting with me 😉
ABC is a wonderful community connecting bloggers. I’m glad we met here and I know as we keep the activities here, there are more great bloggers to meet in the days ahead.
Let’s keep connecting bro 😉
Harleena, you are the Oprah Winfrey of blogging. You ask incisive and interesting question and am more than joyful to see you send your nano probe to dig out the treasures hidden in Enstine.
Enstine you ve done justice to this interview and am truly happy. Thanks so much as I know will continue to dish out more.
Thanks for saying that, I’m flattered. 🙂 I’m glad you liked the questions and enjoyed the interview. I am sure Enstine would be here shortly to reply more in detail to you!
Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
Hey Peter you are right about Harleena being the Oprah of blogging lol I like that.
She dug out to get the right piece of information 😉
Thanks for stopping by bro
Hello Harleena and Enstine,
I had read about Estine and his work some time back and wanted to know the back story as well. This was the one article that has answered it all.
One thing that I noticed about Estine is that you are clear minded and passionate and that instantly makes people connect with you because of the clarity of thoughts that you transmit in your post and in this interview as well.
I specially liked the fact that you laid stress on not being mediocre and doing things professionally. Also, you have shown that there is no shortcut to hard work and smart work takes you forward much faster.
This was a really refreshing interview with a lot of personal touch to it that made it even more interesting. Now, I know Estine better when I read his blog haha.
All the best for 2015 Estine!
This interview was really amazing, thanks for the same Harleena! Couldn’t have been better
I am so glad you learnt a lot more about Enstine through this interview 🙂
Yes indeed, I wanted to have a personal touch to his otherwise professional life, which is so common for bloggers – and it’s good if you noticed that and found it interesting. He’s be here in a while to reply more in detail to you.
Thanks for your kind words, and appreciate you stopping by 🙂
Thanks for the points you made in this comment bro.
I’m glad Harleena really asked important questions to help me share a lot of things about me that were never shared elsewhere. It’s so exciting to be here on her blog again.
While we keep the relationship warm, remember there are better days ahead so let’s keep giving 😉
Its a surprise for me to see you publish an interview about Enstine Muki on your blog as i also published an interview i conducted with him some days ago.
What a coincidence!
I can see he has shared great info with everyone over as he also did on the one on my blog.
For people who might be interested in reading another interview from the same Enstine Muki should get that from my blog.
Thank you for featuring him on your blog. I have to share this on social media.
Take care and have a nice day ahead.
This is certainly purely coincidental. I didn’t know that you also interviewed Enstine. I’m sorry I had to remove the link to your interview post as per the rules of commenting here, but I’d request the readers to visit your interview post by clicking on your name here.
However, you can always share your posts on the ABC. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂
It’s a wonderful coincidence and I love the buzz
This makes it a busy week for me having to deal with comments. It’s also a huge opportunity to meet and engage with many readers 😉
Thanks for the exposure bro
Hi Harleena Madam & Enstine Muki,
That’s a total flip side of the coin I just read about Mr. Money Maker, Enstine Muki. The interview is inspiring, a semi-candid and a must read one for Enstine fans!
Thank you so much madam for bring this for us!
Thank you so much and keep inspiring us Enstine sir!
Have a great week ahead both of you!
I’m glad you liked the interview. I hope it helps you in someway or the other.
Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
It’s a pleasure to have you around man and thanks for the engagement 😉
I know with you around, there are better days ahead. 😉
Do have a wonderderful week ahead
Hello Harleena What a nice treat to learn more about Enstine as the special guest of this month! Loved the picture of his beautiful family!
I have learned so much from him this past year and look forward to the new year ahead with such great friends as the two of you!
Thanks for sharing and do make it an Awesome new week ahead.. Chery :))
Glad you liked the ‘nice treat’ from the money-maker himself! 🙂
Yes indeed, I wanted a picture of his with his beautiful family as I’d seen such nice ones on Facebook, and he was kind enough to send one to us for this interview. He sure has a lot to teach all of us.
Thanks for stopping by, and Enstine would be here in a while to reply to you as well 🙂
So good to have you here and thanks for the engagement 😉
It’s been nice knowing you and learning from your experiences. One thing I’m sure of is there are better days ahead so let’s keep connecting.
Do have a wonderful week, expecting a better tomorrow 😉
Hello Harleena and Enstine,
I surely agree that Enstine is definitely considered the money blogger all by anyone that has access to the web these days. Not only does he consistently give us awesome advice on how to make money online, he backs it up by creating tools to help us become successful at doing it. An example would be BroadedNet and My Comment Authors Plugin.
It says a lot about you when you make the point you are always thinking of ways you can help the next blogger. That next newbie is coming along, and if he is so lucky to connect with you, he or she are well on there way of having one of the best mentors they could ever connect with online and in life.
What also is so impressive about Enstine is that with all that he does, he still has time for a beautiful and loving family. He is truly blessed and I can see he has the heart of gold, which spills over into his online life.
You laid it out really clear how we can be successful and all we have to do is emulate you. Connect with other bloggers, comment on their blogs leaving value, and write epic content and do not be average but great. You are basically letting us know to put others first and that is wonderful advice. I love your point about promoting people and they will like you.
Your mindset is something we all can learn from. You are very optimistic and do not allow anything that could cause you doubt to creep in. That bleeds over to your blog and projects. I think if we are unhappy, we do not find the energy to put forth our best effort in life.
I agree with you Enstine that the AhaNOW! Community has so much potential and 2015 is going to be a great year. What Harleena and Vinay has done for us here, words cannot express. I look so forward to continuing to follow you. My goal today is to go back and read some of the articles you mentioned here today.
Best of luck to you my friend! I have learned so much from you today.
Thanks so much for the kind words you expressed for the community and for Vinay and myself. We’re doing the best we can for the community but we have a lot in store and big plans ahead. I really hope what you say comes true and that we all at the ABC rise together and have a great time.
I’m sure Enstine will be here shortly to answer to your rest of the comment. Thanks for visiting and commenting here. 🙂
You are more than welcome. You guys are doing so great for us all! I am so looking forward to what you have planned for us in the future. Wow, how can you possibly give us more!
I am sure we will all rise together because we have a great mixture of awesome leadership and caring people who want to see others succeed. Have a great week ahead my friend!
Aww..thanks so much for saying that – you made my day a lot brighter 🙂
We are always working round the clock to make things better at the community and there’s a lot being planned for the ABC for the coming year too – so stay tuned!
Thanks once again 🙂
Your comment is so exciting and encouraging.
I can remember coming to know you through a $500 contest on your blog and since then, it’s been an amazing journey.
I have seen you following and using my products with great interest. That just gives me more reasons to push on.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement. One thing I know is that better days are ahead so let’s keep giving bro
You are right, I definitely been following and learning. Please push on and keep teaching us all. Have a great week and congrats for all of your accomplishments.
Hello Enstine bro and Hi Harleena madam,
This was a chat that many bloggers had thought to hear since long..because it has brought Enstine bro much closer to us and revealed some of his secrets inside out.
He is a blogger who inspires many including me..I was amazed to know you read the bible! this is great because these religious books are the words of God that save us from being lost and show us the right path in times of need. In today’s world when many still think reading books are outdated I am glad to find you with a similar point of view as mine.
On your free report..I have it and also follow it..Why don’t you come up with another treasure next year!
Yess you have a beautiful family! God bless you all. 🙂
Thanks for the engagement on my blog and Facebook. So excited to see you here 😉
The bible is a huge book. Like I said, it’s abook of books. I don’t only read it. I preach it and it remains the highest source of my inspiration 😉
Thanks for the continuous engagement 😉
I am glad you liked this little chat with Enstine 🙂
Yes indeed, a little blend of both, personal and professional makes it nice and complete, isn’t it?
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views 🙂
Truly speaking, when I opened this blog-post, and closed it after 10 mins.
To be frank, I already got introduced to Enstine Muki, by giving a friend request in fb, but didn’t get so much intro of him, HAHAH Today, I got to know some interesting history of him nice :).I read it leisurely and now I read every accurate answer of him.
I feel like live conversation of Muki and hope it would be a beneficial stuff for the upcoming bloggers.
Yeah, I really like the words “Money is not everything. That’s why I have rejected some very juicy advertising proposals for my blog. Money has to be clean. That means the way in which we make it has to be with respect for others.” . Yes, It make me more sense in blogging and I experience it now 🙂
Nice to read your mistakes, dilemma in making decision related to your profession etc.
Thanks for sharing your real experiences Enstine Muki 🙂
Mam: You are awesome,Where you got these valuable questions, learning a lot from you. Ps do let me know that if you’ve already posted on “How to request for blogger interviews” I want to do it, but don’t know exactly where to get started . Thanks and hats off to your great effort 🙂
Glad you liked the interview. 🙂
Regarding the interview questions, I just make them up on the go. I try to make sure that the questions and answers are helpful to the readers in some way or the other and unique ones too.
I did not understand the second part of the question you addressed to me. Do you mean to ask if I have written a post on that topic? No, I haven’t and of course you can do it – even on the ABC, if you win the guest post here.
Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂
Yes mam, My question is about is there any post explaining the steps/way to reach out the others bloggers and asking for interview.
And I got your answer. my next Q is how to win the guest post in ABC blog ? Ps let me know the guidelines. Very excited to step in and write as guest. 🙂
Thank you for your help in need,
No Siva, I’m afraid I do not have any such post but you can just go ahead, frame a nice request mail, and send it to any blogger you want to interview. You’ll find that many will be ready and oblige.
As for having your guest post on Aha!NOW, the only way is by topping the leaderboard. You can read more about it on the “Community” option at the top menu of the blog.
Hope this helps, thanks. 🙂
I’m glad Harleena gave me this opportunity to provide more infomation about myself.
Thanks for hooking up on Facebook. You understand it’s not the right place to give out these kind of details.
So glad that we are sharing here so let’s keep it warm bro
Do have a splendid week
Thanks bro, Happy to connect with you. Lets keep in touch always 🙂
That is my boss himself,i love and trust you sir, carry on.
Thanks Edit 😉
I think with a gravatar, your comment will be more attractive. What do you think?
Welcome to my blog Edith! 🙂
Just as Enstine mentioned, we’d appreciate it if you could use your Gravatar or profile image – always good to see who we are talking to! Just a friendly suggestion.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Hey Harleena and Enstine,
What a wonderful interaction by two blogging enthusiasts of our time!
Harleena, first I would like to thank you for giving Enstine such a wonderful opportunity to appear here again after 11 months on your blog to share his blogging expertise and experiences with us. On seeing the title, I quickly rushed down here because I know for sure that I was going to pick some new things from the brains of you both 🙂
Enstine is an epitome of smart ideas. I have had the privilege of working with him for a long time now and all I have gotten out of him was nothing but value. The way he thinks, brings up money making ideas, solves problems and above all cares for his friends is wonderful! I used to wonder how he does it, but believe me this guy knows what he is doing.
Making money to him is like a magic! I have had couple of day when I was working with him on Skype. We will be chatting and the next thing I will hear booommm… Jackson I have just made $350 now! It has happened on several occasions that each time he informs me of how much he has made I simply tell him “Great” because I know it’s one thing he knows how to do best.
Making money isn’t the only thing Enstine knows, he knows how to bring bloggers together using interactive and engaging tools. No wonder his MyCommentAuthor’s plugin, CashDonator, and of course his popular Broaded.net blog promotion platform are all about traffic, engagement, making money and building strong and trusted community.
He is a rare gem and I am most happy to have known him not just as a blogger but as a friend and a brother!
Harleena, again thank you for this Monday gift for use. I really appreciate the AHA now that I am enjoying 🙂
It’s new week, and since you too started it on this wonderful note, I wish you get the best out it!
Glad you could take out time to comment on this post. I agree with what you mention about Enstine. Traffic, relationships, and engagements are the breeding ground for making money, and Enstine tackles them all wonderfully. 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed the interview. I’m sure Enstine too would have something to say about what you wrote about him – I’d keep my comment short here this time..lol..
Wish you a great week ahead! Thanks for visiting, again. 🙂
So good to see you here and thanks for such a comment.
You know it’s exciting to make money online and I always feel so more excited to share my earnings and let people know everything on the net is not scam.
In those early days, it used to be really bad. A lot of people lost so much money to scammers. That’s today, people are being so cautious. In any case, there are still many ways to genuinely make your money.
To make money with blogging, you must be able to bring different things together. Traffic is not all it requires. Some people have the traffic and product but are still failing. So I try to connect joins to bring out the perfect point.
I know we have a lot ahead bro. With a hard working and smart spirit, failure has been fenced out 😉
Good, i think i will love to be your host this Christmas or what do you think Enstine?
Sounds great 😉
I might be flying with Arik or Camair-co
Harleena, Enstine is a blogger who motivates all of us to work hard. I liked the way you have asked different type of questions to Enstine.
Many of us have a lot to learn from Enstine. We are focusing on blogging only, but Enstine also make plugins and other things which are very useful for bloggers. If a newbie wants to become a successful online entrepreneur, then he definitely needs to know about Enstine.
I also regularly follow Enstine’s blog as he makes us know about so many new things at his blog.
Of course I know you quite well and thanks for all the time you set aside to engage on my ariticles.
Thanks for every encouragement and every promotion. I know I won’t be where I am without your input
Hope you are having a great week 😉
Glad you liked the interview and the way the questions were framed. 🙂
Yes indeed, I love going into the smaller personal details too, instead of just keeping it all professional, so perhaps it looks all good!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting 🙂
Thanks for putting up Enstine here. He is very much popular and well deserve it. He has been many people’s motivation who wants to be a money blogger.
It’s so nice to hear about his backgrounds. Well, he got many skills like technical computing, web design, php and even cms. I knew him from emfastincome blog. But never knew he had a business called easyretweet.
He is as well as a blogger, programmer and true entrepreneur. And that is what keeps all motivated even including me. 🙂
It’s such an amazing experience featuring here on aha-now and thanks for reading and taking the time to engage with me.
Thanks for following up from . I know for sure that there are better days for us ahead so let’s keep giving 😉
It’s my pleasure (or even luck) that I was able to attend here on a wonderful post. 🙂
Yeah, we all know how hard Harleena is working for this awesome community. Nevertheless, your contribution for this community is remarkable. Not only this, the whole blogging industry enjoying it.
Keep writing and sharing your awesome works dear.
Thanks for your kind words, and I am glad you liked the interview with Enstine as well.
Yes indeed, one does work hard for the ABC, though there’s a lot more to be done still – and I guess with time it’s going to keep getting better.
Appreciate you stopping by 🙂
Welcome to Aha!NOW as the special guest of this month. 🙂
It’s great to have you back on the blog. How time flies and you never come to know of it. So much has happened in this one year and you launched two new plugins.
But somethings don’t change, and that is the relationships that we build. It’s great that we could hang on and survive the ups and downs of blogging.
I too initiated the monetization of my blog, though it came a bit late. But I’d like to tell the readers that the monetization process may be different for different blogs and bloggers.
You won’t believe I rejected a $300 offer by a sponsor because I did not think it would go with the ethos of my blog. So, money is not everything and as a blogger, you need to act very sensibly and responsibly.
It’s was educating to learn from your life and work experiences. What impresses me is that you make efforts to find time for your family too.
All the tips that you provide for bloggers and the Internet marketers are spot on and I wish all readers benefit from them.
You are right that we need to monetize our efforts and works. You need to spot the opportunities and capitalize on them. Your skills are more important than the traffic, right?
I like your concept of happiness, and I agree that it’s the state of mind. I just wish people don’t depend on money to be happy – you can be happy if and when you want to. Just let your state of mind be such that even the absence of money doesn’t make you overly sad.
Finally, its good to read that you’ll be officially joining the ABC very soon next year. I’m sure that’s going to be exciting for all of us.
I know the readers will have all types of questions for you, so I hope you’ll find time to respond to them – while I’d be here to welcome the newcomers. Once again, thank you for being my guest so that we all can know you better. 🙂
It’s such a supper exciting experience to be interviewed here on your blog. I don’t think I have words enough to express my gratitude. You, know right this moment, my daughter has asked me several times ‘daddy what is it?’ because I’m demonstrating some excitement that makes me behave unusual – hitting the table, laughing, etc. I was here in January and here again in December 😉
Wow! I know you are that kind of person who case for his readers. That’s why you turned down a $300 offer. I have rejected many too and the most recent was a gambling product. I found it completely out of place to talk about it on my blog.
Someone told me it’s still about making money but I said no to it. It’s not in line at the moment. The guys wanted to pay big but no, no, no.
I have come to know that to make money online is a result of smartness. You must be able to monetize your effort not just doing what others say works for them. I have made money from unthinkable whitehat methods and I still look forward to many more crazy methods – where people don’t think it’s possible 😉
I thank everyone that’s taking time to engage with me on this interview. Just hang on to aha-now. Of course, you know the worth of it 😉
We have better days ahead 😉
