About

Urmil Patel in MonacoHi, I’m Urmil, I make a full time living as a property investor, web designer and internet marketing consultant but I’m about to give this all up (and literally giveaway 1.2 million pounds of property) so I can start over from scratch and build a better lifestyle and business by choice not chance.

I’ll show you exactly what I’m doing, so you too, can enjoy more freedom and fulfillment.

I’m a father, husband and online entrepreneur.  My current businesses let me work from home, live debt free, be able to afford great vacations and buy a lot of stuff, you know like training courses, books, gadgets, fast cars, more training courses and other cool things.

Some might say I have everything. I would say they are wrong.

Here’s the thing. And maybe you can relate with this.

Do you feel like you don’t have as much time as you’d like to spend with your family?

Do you feel you are making your greatest contribution to the world with the work you do?

Do you have dreams that have been put on hold, indefinitely?

If I’m honest, I have to answer yes to all of these. I’m trapped in businesses that are sucking the life out of me. My businesses run me.

Life’s purpose is much more than growing the size of our bank accounts, it’s your opportunity to create miracles.

It’s time to break free, discover life’s purpose and start living it.

The Critical Missing Ingredient for Living a Life of Freedom, Fulfillment and Self Made Miracles

I believe we all have a purpose in life. The problem is no-one told us how to discover it, let alone fulfill it. No wonder we end up feeling so stuck and trapped. But deep inside you know there’s something more you’re meant to be doing in this world.

What if I told you you could live your life’s purpose starting today? It’s not as hard as you may think.

I believe that journey of discovering and fulfilling our life’s purpose is one of our greatest sources of freedom and happiness. When we follow our life’s purpose we create miracles, by choice not chance, that inspire others.

I call these Self Made Miracles and they help you to start “living your Miracle Story.”

WHAT IS YOUR MIRACLE STORY?

I’m glad you asked…

It’s the most significant milestone in your life.  It’s the story of how you discovered and fulfilled your life’s purpose. It’s the story you’ll share with friends over dinner or perhaps your children or grandchildren, or maybe your maker one day.

You and I both have a miracle story that we’re meant to create and share. I invite you to come along with me on this journey to create your miracle story.

ARE YOU TRULY HAPPY OR IS IT TIME TO CHANGE DIRECTION?

Imagine a business and lifestyle that would make you truly happy and feel successful, perhaps you like the sound of what I’m mentioned above, or maybe you have one you’ve dreamt about.

Now, if what you thought of is different from what you’re currently doing in life and for a living, then you’re selling yourself short my friend and I’m telling you now, stop and take back control of your life and start a journey to discover your purpose.

A word of advice, you’ll never fulfil your life’s purpose if all you do is follow the status quo.

You can create an amazing life and business. You are in total control of making it happen. Where you end up will be because of the choices you make.  So make good choices because there has never been a time in our history where you have so much opportunity and guidance to help you succeed. The only way you can fail is by never having the courage to try.

You want success, it’s yours. Define it and create it.  I’ll show you how.

Urmil Patel in Koh SamuiYou’re in luck. That’s exactly what I’m doing in my business and life and here on my blog I’m going to show you how to do the same, even if you’re starting from scratch.

I’ll be designing my dream lifestyle first, and making time for my family, my health and more travelling. Then I’ll be building a business doing something I love (my life’s purpose), that fits around the way I want to live and work. And instead of selling my time for money, i’ll be building online assets (you know, like actors and smart rich folks do, so they can make money while they sleep) and finally I’ll make sure my business makes a difference in the lives of others, starting with yours.

To create all this we’ll explore and master the following 3 areas:

  1. Get Fit – develop your physical and mental energy and well being to be inspired to do your best work and enjoy the results
  2. Get Famous – figure out your unique gift, get known for it, create online assets and use them to serve others and make life-changing money
  3. Be Free (Find Freedom) – have the time, money, and flexibility to live life on your terms and live debt free

So that’s my mission, to help you build a new lifestyle and business, one where you’re fit, famous and free, and in doing so you’ll create a Miracle Story that will inspire millions.

With this blog, I want to be as transparent as possible with everything I do to create my online business and dream lifestyle. My lifestyle choices, my health and fitness, my businesses, my strategies, my activities, my results (good or bad), my income and even parts of my personal life.

I feel that by being transparent about everything is the best way to help you most.

If you’re already building a business online and creating your freedom lifestyle, I hope that my experiences and insights, both successes and failures, can help you reach your goals.

If you’re thinking about joining the online entrepreneurs of the world by starting an online business and improving your lifestyle, you can see what it’s all about, what’s involved and whether its the kind of business and lifestyle that is right for you.

LET’S BE HONEST ABOUT SOME STUFF

I’m don’t proclaim to be a lifestyle design expert and I don’t consider myself an internet marketing guru.  I solve problems, get results and provide value.  You won’t find me talking about secret strategies or ninja principles, and I certainly won’t be selling such things, that’s just not me.

I’ll show you how to build your lifestyle and your business from personal experience without the hype, no hidden agenda, and enough to help you move forward fast.

Your success is as important to me as my own, so if you need some help figuring stuff out, don’t struggle yourself, I’m here for you, just use my contact form to send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Most of my work will be on this blog for free but, there will be some exclusive content shared only with my newsletter subscribers, so be sure to join the list.

Also I will occasionally create some premium paids trainings, products and tools to help make your life easier. These help me pay the bills, and allow me to focus on producing free training for you to help you succeed faster.

Building a lifestyle and business takes a lot of hard work, persistence, and a little bit of faith.  I believe in you and remember you were born to make a difference.

I’ll provide real life case studies, behind the scenes experiments, community challenges to help you break through comfort zones, and recommendations based on my experience in creating a freedom lifestyle and an online business that makes money and makes a difference.

More of My Story So Far

I started out like most people going through a string of 9 to 5 jobs to make money, get some experience and clear some big university debts.

I hated every job i’ve ever had with a passion. I felt restricted, held back and like my potential was being wasted. I hated that someone else determined what my time was worth, how quickly I could progress, when I could have my lunch and how much to deduct from my pay if my train was delayed and I got into work late. I had absolutely no control of my income.

I received a fixed wage in exchange for working a fixed number of hours. The pay was borderline insulting and I found myself regularly having to use my credit card just to make it through till the next payday.  The thought of doing this for the next 40 years of my life was petrifying.

I knew I had to do something different.

I taught myself web design and a bunch of coding languages from books. I tried network marketing opportunities and even set up some brick and mortar businesses.

My biggest obstacles were I lacked money, focus, business knowledge, experience and guidance.  Most of my early businesses failed and left me in more debt than when I began.

To help pay the debts I fell into a cycle, it was awful: get a job, make some money, quit my job, do some freelancing, get a client, build a website, get paid, save some money, try a new business venture, business venture failed, get into more debt, and then start over and get a job and so on…

This cycle happened for several years until i hit rock bottom in December 2006.

Multiple failed businesses, huge high interest debts, physically exhausted, mentally drained, and losing all hope.  I felt like a failure.  I had to move back in with my parents aged 29 and tell them I’d failed.  It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

What happened next I did not expect. They sent me off to India to spend a month with my grandma, to get some clear perspective on my life and how I was going to fix it. They told me two things that i’ve never forgotten:
I was put on this planet to do great things
the only way i’d fail is if I stopped trying

Thanks mum, thanks dad, thanks grandma for everything. If you’re feeling low, make a trip to grandma’s house.  That trip changed me life.

I returned to the UK, re-energised, with a new mindset and ready to build a business, a web design and internet marketing consultancy, to be exact.  I started it, attended network meetings, got clients, built websites, marketed websites, got paid and got more clients and this cycle continued for a few months.

BEING PAID FOR YOUR TIME WILL KEEP YOU POOR

I grew to dislike consulting very quickly. I was still being paid for my time, but for the moment I was happy having a business that was succeeding and bringing in great money and reducing my debts.

What I really wanted was a business that made me passive income, you know while I slept.

That’s when I was introduced to property investing by one of my clients in February 2014.

I knew nothing about property, I’d never purchased one, but how hard could it really be?

In fact, the one thing I noticed about property investing was most investors had no way of generating great leads.  It just so happened, that was the one of the thing’s I was great at, generating leads using online marketing.

Before I knew it I became a property investor, buying property at 50% below the market value, using my internet marketing expertise to attract these deals online. Within 9 months I had built a large property portfolio that spanned right across the UK and cleared all my debts.

Then came the global credit crunch of 2008. I stopped buying property and just kept the ones I had which were bringing in a very handsome full time income.

Later that year I got married to a beautiful girl, that I actually met online and we spent a few years travelling the world. (holy cow, are you seeing the signs here, the internet was really changing my life)

Between 2009 and 2014 I focused on managing the property portfolio (lots of problems, renovations and rent arrears), servicing my consulting clients and spent my spare time learning everything I could about internet marketing through investing in training courses, seminars, books, workshops, and one on one coaching.

I became obsessed about everything from product creation to product launching, from seo to social media, from video creation to viral marketing, from webinars to website conversions and podcast to paid advertising.

I was fascinated how someone with no prior experience, could use the internet to create an income, a business and a life of total freedom. I knew that’s what I wanted to do, but the pain in my life to change from my current businesses wasn’t bad enough, not yet anyway.

It was a fun 5 years, lots of money spent on learning, largely funded by my consulting clients and my property income and plenty of travelling with my wife to some amazing places.

  • Here’s some highlights of the exciting things I did during that time:
  • Held my first ever 3 day internet marketing seminar in London in 2009
  • Built a website for the winner of America’s Got Talent 2011
  • Ran an SEO workshop in Las Vegas in 2012
  • Spent 30 day travelling around Las Vegas and the west coast of America
  • Created my first software product in 2012
  • Did my first online product launch in 2012 and generated $130k in sales in 10 days (big thanks to my product launch partners) – we made an extra £50k on the follow on webinar
  • Built a buyers mailing list of 2200+ in 2012
  • 37 day trip around South east Asia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Koh Samui in 2012
  • 10 day road trip around Europe, from Geneva to Barcelona in 2013 with friends
  • Several family vacations to Portugal and Spain
  • Started to take on coaching clients to help them start online businesses, create videos, drive traffic and make money

HOORAY – WE’RE PREGNANT

Urmil and familyThen in 2014 my life changed
My wife tells me on my 38th birthday that she’s pregnant with our first child.

I was ecstatic that I was going to become a father but I was so unprepared.

With my consulting and property commitments, I was already spending less time with my wife than at any point during our 7 years of marriage. How could I make time for a baby.

I knew something had to change, I wanted:

  • to have time to spend with my wife and baby every day (and not miss out on anything)
  • to discover my life’s purpose so I could inspire my baby to do the same
  • to have time to homeschool my baby so he could have a great start in life and really make a difference in the world
  • to design a lifestyle where I was healthy enough to see my baby grow up and not be burned out by 40.
  • to create a business that I was proud of and would be able provide for my family and make them proud

I BUILT THE WRONG BUSINESS MODELS FOR FREEDOM AND FULFILMENT

That’s when it hit me, the businesses I’d built were never going to give me the time freedom I wanted in my life and they definitely weren’t my life’s purpose.

I was running the web design and internet marketing consulting business like a freelancer.  I’d get a client, do the work, get paid and so the cycle would continue with the next client.

It was just like a job and I was being paid for my time again.  The money was great, the sense of fulfilment was low and the time freedom was low. That business had to go.

And the property business. Well let’s just say this, if the phone rang, it meant there was a problem.  A burst water pipe, the tenant was moving out, the tenant couldn’t pay rent, the property had been flooded (oh yeah, i’ve had that call before).  The biggest problem was, my properties spanned the UK, and with a baby on its way, I didn’t want to travel for hours and stay away from home to fix property problems.

PROPERTY INVESTING ISN’T PASSIVE INCOME

The reality of property investing began to show and it confirmed what I already knew. The income wasn’t passive and the business had no respect for my time.  I’ve had tenants call at 8am on a sunday morning and i’ve had to cancel family events to fix property related issues.

Again, in this business, the money was good, the sense of fulfilment was very low and the time freedom was very limited. This business had to go as well.

Mid 2014 I decided to start selling off my properties as fast as possible and cash in.  I stopped taking on new clients in my web design and internet marketing consulting business.

I made the decision to focus on a new business. One that was online.  One where I created products (assets), such as ebooks, video courses, membership sites, coaching programs and even software.  I wanted to build these assets, so that they could be sold and would continue to bring in money long after they were created.  I real passive income.

And so that bring us to today. I’ve got 6 properties left (I’ve got plans to give them away via my blog in the future, so keep a look out for that) and a handful of consulting clients that I’ve become very good friends with.

Urmil Patel working on the beach in Koh SamuiI’m ready to build this new online business and lifestyle and help you do the same.

Although I’m starting to build a new online business from scratch, that fits around the freedom lifestyle I want to live. I’ll be drawing from my knowledge, strategies and real life results I’ve created for many of my clients to help on this journey.

I’ll document every step of the process, things that works, things that didn’t, so that you too can see there is a system for creating your own self made miracles.
