Youplus Spotlight has put together the brightest spotlights of 2016, including coverage of my co-founder Murray Newlands.

Newlands lists a few ways that he sustains success, including staying positive, removing negative people from your life, pinpointing businesses that make you happy, keeping in good health, choosing a mantra, rewarding yourself and believing in yourself. Featured in the Spotlight is also an image from Pubcon, where Newlands was featured as an Internet Marketing Ninja.
