Confessions of a Virtual Boss
The Power Of Having a Goal (The No BS Way)

The Power Of Having a Goal (The No BS Way)

April 7, 2018

Goals are what satnav is to a modern car. The power of goals is what makes the unwashed, washed. It's what makes the depressed become energized and optimistic. 

The truth is, we're living in a golden era of opportunity. In fact, it's something we've maybe dreamt of for centuries. Yet, despite this, how many of us waste our time with lack of direction? How many times do we simply waste our time by procrastinating it away with daytime fantasy and hyperbolic Netflix series?

Here's what you can do if you want to:

  • Sit in your underwear and make money at home
  • Balance time by using leverage
  • Create passive and none passive income. "Create some bloody good earners" (A Michael Brodie use of the English language)

What is a success? What is a failure? What is conformity? How does conformity destroy your self-esteem?

Give social pressure the middle finger! Really!! Oh my, Michael, what are you saying? I'm telling you to kick yourself up the backside and take control of your life.

 

This episode might just change your entire perspective on life! It's my honest bloody truth about everything that I hold dear to me.

Winners Psychology: The Mindset of Success

Winners Psychology: The Mindset of Success

March 11, 2018

I employed 40 staff and had a 6 figure business by age 19. Age 21 I felt paralyzed by two bad nightclub ventures and thought about suicide! Mindset is powerful, and mindset is what allowed me to bounce back and do what I do right now.

There are certain patterns that exist that allow people to do well in life, whether that be financial success, happiness, fulfillment, while at the same time other patterns exist that lead us to live lives of failure, self-imposed imprisonment, and sadness.

Money does not mean everything. However, my ass prefers the leather of a jaguar seat as opposed to a battered old 1999 Vauxhall. 

The secret of it all is mastering time! But is that all?

 

Here is what you're going to learn:

  • How to master your time
  • Why living life on your terms is probably not what you think it is!
  • Focus on the big picture, get rid of the mini thinking stuff
  • Wealth is not the answer.... but it's certainly not the enemy!
  • The difference between the 27-year old I know who owns a Lamborghini but looks dead and depressed vs the 55-year-old self-made Iranian/British millionaire who lives a great life and enjoys his time.
  • Transform the way you run your business and live your life.
  • How to influence your team.

 

MUST READ BEFORE LISTENING:

This is one the most powerful episode that I've produced, I touch on very personal stuff, and I promise that this will leave you thinking. Today's show has the ability to change the entire way you think about business and life!

How To Live Anywhere in the World… Without slumming it!

How To Live Anywhere in the World… Without slumming it!

February 23, 2018

This episode might well change the whole way you live your life!

I say this because it's advice, strategies, and actions that changed my life.

It's made me wealthier, happier and emotionally more fulfilled that at any time in my life... that includes when I owned the retail stores.

 

What is a virtual boss?

  1. Being a Virtual Boss is about living life on your terms and living in a state of empowerment.

  2. Being a Virtual Boss is about freedom, prosperity, leverage, it's about turnkey systems.
  3. Being a virtual boss means getting rid of the crap in your life, while at the same time doing deals, making money, and getting whatever balance you want in your life... based on your own personal life goals!

 

This episode you'll discover some of the following:

  • How you can live life on your terms. Regardless of your current situation.
  • Secrets to becoming none location dependent
  • How to work from anywhere in the world
  • Get out the office and into the sun
  • How you can leverage resources and hire virtual assistants.

 Reasons people fail:

Michael Brodie might be able to do it... but I can't

- First of all, I left school at 16 with a few GCSE's to my name... so if I can do it, trust me anybody can.

Skepticism often stems from lack of knowledge

We are all skeptics to an extent. 

I've had my fingers burnt before and I know that there are people who often tell lies.

But here's the thing.

Without being willing to at least listen to new info, take a shot at it, and then see for yourself why and how it works... you'll always live a life that's NOT on your terms.

As always, I'm going to be reflecting on my life and speaking from my experiences as a virtual boss, running multiple businesses, and of course the big mistakes I've made along the way.

Why COPYING with a Tweak is the Best Way to Grow Your Business!

June 10, 2017

I'll show you how copying with a tweak will grow your business faster than anything else! Originality is good in exceptional cases, but copying can be good multiplied by 10 and injected with steroids!

Michael Brodie explains why:

  • If it's not been done, it might well suck
  • Innovators are great, but 99% of successful businesses don't innovate, they copy
  • Did Apply revolutionize the world with the iPod? or was it a sexier more practical version of a Walkman with awesome marketing?
  • Walmart? Sam Walton founded with one store and became the wealthiest man in the world. Was Walmart an innovator? Actually, K-Mart already had a national chain while Walmart was still in its infant stage.
  • How to apply the principles of semi-replicating with a tweak to make a fortune

As a teenager, I made money and built up capital in a ridiculously quick period of time. How? I copied. I saw the idea working, found my own locations, and boom!
