UMI was the natural outgrowth of his first startup, SavingsAngel.com which had grown to more than 50 employees and grossed more than $6 million in sales with less than $500 in advertising spent. He did it all through building authority and serving audiences in the media.

Josh is a frequent speaker at business and startup conferences including Social Media Marketing World and a Tony Robbins event for his Business Mastery grads. He’s a weekly consumer expert on Fox 35 Orlando and News 13, writes a syndicated column for nine newspapers (with total readership above 1.1 million readers), and regularly appears on more than 75 TV stations across the country.

Episode 81: Rosemary Nonny Knight – How To Become A Deliberate Millionaire

In this episode, Brett Dupree mostly complains about his life. Woe is him. Then he has a very inspiring interview with Rosemary Nonny Knight. Talks a lot about how she wanted to be an example of how to live a deliberate life for her children. Love it!

Rosemary Nonny Knight used to be a pharmacist, slowly feeling her life force drain away as she did work that did not make her feel fulfilled.  Finally, she stepped up after hitting the rock bottom of Bankruptcy and a 4-year long depression, as well as giving birth to 3 glorious princesses. She chose to start a real estate business and make it successful instead of all the dabbling she had done in the past.  It worked! and still works – She more than replaced her full-time income and completely quit pharmacy in 2013.  And then, she went on to a further deeper awakening as she realized that her whole life has been spent making everyone else happy and trying to find her worth in the approval of others.  This caused her to get back in touch with her true design self, with the help of coaches and mentors, and build a thriving online business doing only what she wants to do.


She is the creator of THE ABUNDANCE LIBRARY – an ever-expanding catalog of business, spiritual and personal growth digital programs designed to empower spiritual people to leave behind the pain and limiting beliefs of the past as they rise victorious in their TRUE DESIGN life.  She also works more personally with people in the DELIBERATE MILLIONAIRE ASSEMBLY teaching others the Deliberate millionaire pathway to peace and plenty and supporting them in getting new income streams off the ground that more closely follow their true design.

Rosemary Nonny Knight is the author of 13 books, one of which is the “DELIBERATE MILLIONAIRE FREEDOM BOOK: Live free, wealthy and on purpose – how to stop living for the weekend and start doing what you want when you want…deliberately”.  She is giving this away for free.  Download your digital copy at RosemaryNonnyKnight.com/freeguest

Like so many of us, she grew up striving for the perfect life – a fairy tale romance and a successful career. While working her way through the checklist of accomplishments, she found a disconnect.

 The person she was at home was not the person she was at work, nor even the person she IS.  She was playing the role rather than participating in life. She has found excitement in bringing her full self to every aspect of her life.  Through her book, Shine Your Bright, she hopes you find the peace and courage to do the same.

 All too often life throws us curve balls or we end up on autopilot ready to implode. We find ourselves burying our feelings just to keep everyone and everything around us afloat. Is it time to start to release some of the pressure and get to know yourself again? With Heather’s help, you can start to remember the real you and unlock the emotions you have held too closely all this time.

 She will teach your audience to acknowledge and embrace these feelings, gain confidence in knowing the smiles, hurt, and anger are all part of what makes them the special individuals they are today.
