An Interview With Successful Entrepreneur And Business Executive Josh Verne

Entrepreneur Josh Verne, CEO and co-founder of, was recently interviewed on a podcast where he talked about his 20 years starting, building and selling businesses. He also spoke about his book ‘How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Succeed in Life and Business‘ and talked about his favorite success quote which is from Johnathan Swift, “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others”.

In the podcast Verne touched on 5 major points. The first was why it’s better to be a leader instead of a boss when in a management position. Bosses do what’s best for themselves, demand respect and use their title to get their goals accomplished. Leaders earn respect, put their people first and accomplish goals decided on with their team. Leaders produce true success, Verne explained.Josh Verne’s second point was ‘Every deal should be a Win-Win’. Don’t agree to deals or follow plans that are win-lose, Verne explained. In every business deal the seller, the client, the staff and society should all be winners. It’s always possible to find a way for everyone involved to win if you look for it. This helps organizations to skyrocket. Speak Less and listen more was Verne’s third piece of advice.

Having balance in your life is essential was Verne’s fourth point. Spending a little time each day on making money, improving your health, working on loving your family and growing personally, will help people create balanced lives. You decide how much time each area requires and give it that time. Verne’s fifth point was each person must figure out what they’re passionate about. Most successful people are passionate about what they’re doing. Finding the thing that makes you excited to wake up early each day, skip parties and work long hours will lead to a good life.
