refreshing to hear such a successful person who has helped countless millions
of business owners with concepts like “working on the business rather than

owners from being chained employees (of their own companies) to focusing on
what is most important – and going after
that. He talks about “liberation
from doing, doing, doing.”
what he is about, Michael unequivocally stated, “My life is about
creating”. He currently has six companies going which he has launched in
the past two years. He sounds most excited about In the Dreaming

calls, “intentional dreaming”.
Gerber raves about making mistakes.

what your mission is
what your purpose is
what your vision is

yourself to liberate yourself, then you need to find a way to get free of it.
one really talks like this. He’s earned his position with the audience, who
could not get enough.
