OUR FOUNDER, MIKE L. MURPHY

In case you don’t know me, my name’s Mike L. Murphy and I founded The Visionary Planner®.

Back in 2011, I was working in Hollywood (on movies like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Ironman). 

I had a life-altering moment when I read Robert Kiyosaki’s book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’: I realized the richest people in the world were creating their own IP (intellectual property). 

They weren’t getting paid peanuts to create things others made millions off of (like I was). When they developed their own IP just once, they could get paid for it forever...

In case you’re curious, here’s some people and projects I was involved with:

That led me on a decade-long journey to create my own IP and live life on my terms….

For several years, I traveled the world mentoring animation students as an expert in my niche…

Mike L. Murphy public speaking

Despite studying under some of the top marketers in the online space, I could never find a step-by-step, start-to-finish business plan that showed me HOW to build a stable business online... so I could earn from anywhere.

I wanted to package my expertise into an online business that freed my time while amplifying my impact. 

The problem was all the ‘gurus’ gave me pieces of the puzzle and motivational speeches, but I needed a plan—not a piece of one nor a performance. 

Fed up, I decided to solve this problem myself...

I spent several years studying every business course I could get my hands on…and created flowcharts that stretched across rooms. While their sheer size commanded attention, the content on those charts caught the eyes of other entrepreneurs…

People began asking me to take them through the system I mapped out, so in 2016 VP became my IP (and my vision to create something came full circle).

Right out of the gates, 7 entrepreneurs paid me $24,000 each to help get them earning online; VP took off almost instantly. 

Through VP, I’ve now helped hundreds of people around the world build their very own profitable online businesses in record time.
