Brian Rose – Our 100 Year Plan
This week on the show, Brian is the guest and our host is Roger Brooks from American Real!
In Roger’s words:
Sometimes life presents opportunities for which we have to act upon. For me, my story in creating American Real is an example.
As a fan of London Real, I became inspired by Brian Rose, and had a burning desire to become a broadcaster and start my very own show. In July 2017, I enrolled into the London Real Broadcast Yourself Accelerator Course and after eight weeks of grueling, yet rewarding tasks, I found myself sitting in Rose’s chair—where once a year he reverses the roles and puts himself in the hot-seat.
With a little over a week to prepare, I flew from New York to London to interview Brian in what would be the final episode in their old studio, before moving to their new world headquarters!
If you want to get to know Brian Rose a little better, settle in because there’s over four hours of epic ROSE GOLD here. Brian goes deep and I press hard, as we discuss the many lessons he’s learned from the best in the world, over his six-year journey. He shares his doubts and fears, what he can improve on and also provides his vision for where London Real is going for the next 100 years.
Before the interview, I asked Brian if any subject was off limits. He said, “Come on, Roger… this is London Real!” And so, I went for it and asked Brian all that I could—what makes him cry, why he pulled the Peter Sage episode and what is was like to create the Ido Portal episode in Israel.
American Real, like London Real, is on a mission to raise global consciousness. Please join us on this wonderful journey!
