The Elevation Group is the creation of my mentor, Mike Dillard.

What is the Elevation Group?
Investment Strategies for Portfolio Growth!
For readers who are not online marketers, Mike Dillard is the “father” of Magnetic Sponsoring and what has become known as “attraction marketing”. Mike went from a broke waiter to earning over $10 million by using and teaching these principles.
Obviously, Mike has been very financially successful. As a new father, and having only recently passed the tender age of 30, he turned his attention to the growth of his assets. He had the time and money to scour the world for financial advice.
But let Mike tell the story himself:
Considering that we’re probably just meeting for the first time, I should probably tell you the story about how this whole “Elevation Group” thing got started…So, take a seat in my time machine and let’s turn back the clock to the year 2008.
I’m exhausted. The floorboard of the Range Rover is littered with empty Red Bull cans and bags of beef jerky, and that can only mean one thing: the two-day, 1,500 mile drive from my home in Austin,TX to Los Angeles, CA has come to an end.
Normally, I’d claim my aisle seat on a 10:00 AM Southwest flight, eat a healthy green bar, and stare out the nearest window in disgusted awe as we descend through the brown blanket of smog that envelopes the City of Angels.
But this isn’t an ordinary trip. I’ll need my wheels this time.
For the next 60 days, I’ll be based out of a Hilton Extended-Stay hotel, with nothing else to do but exercise, read, and work.
Little did I know that I would be glued to my television as I watched the global economy crack and crumble by the hour – or that this event would define the rest of my life.
I was already aware of the coming economic collapse thanks to authors Robert Kiyosaki and Michael Maloney. Taking their advice, I was already highly invested in gold and silver by December of 2007.
And as I watched the collapse of Bear Sterns trigger the global financial crises almost a year later, I was confronted with an interesting wave of emotions.
By going “all-in” in gold and silver, I was literally betting on the collapse of my country’s economy. The worse it got, the better my precious metal investments performed! With gold around $1,700 an ounce as we enter into 2012, it has proved to be a VERY good bet.
But it is also my opinion that we’re just in the 3rd inning of this economic “ball game”.
Thanks to this series of events, one prevailing thought has occupied the majority of my brain space for the past three years: “We’re living through the greatest wealth transfer in the history of mankind. It will cause unprecedented destruction for most, and unprecedented opportunity for a few.”
The only factor that will determine which group you’re in is KNOWLEDGE. Do you know what’s happening, and do you know how to turn it into opportunity?
That question still stands today, and there is still time to create your strategy.
My quest for logical and practical investment strategies produced “The Elevation Group“
Now you need to understand, these investment strategies were researched for my OWN use! I spent my own time and money to consult with the BEST advisors around the world.
But what I discovered was so significant and so life-changing that I made a decision:
I left my company in the hands of others and decided to devote ALL my time to spreading the word about impending economic conditions and how to help others structure their finances. I named this new effort “The Elevation Group” because I want to elevate the understanding of thousands so they would no longer feel that they are victims of the economic system!
The Elevation Group was created in order to provide you – the “average investor” – with the education, contacts, and resources you need to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
So congratulations! The simple fact that you’re reading this means you’re no longer a sheep headed for shearing. You’re officially “in the game”.
But before we continue, I have a confession to make…
I’ve never really been “good” with money.
Obviously with several successful business that have generated around $25,000,000 in revenue, I’ve learned how to make money. But I’ve never known what to do with it.
In college I actually failed all of my accounting, math, and finance classes, and had to take each of them 2-3 times in summer school just to pass them.
So I’ve always had this story in my head that I’m not good with numbers, which caused me to avoid any kind of personal relationship with my finances or investing.
If I needed more money, I’d just go make more and that method served me well for a while.
But then the big 3-0 hit, and that was a life-sized alarm clock going off right next to my bed. I wasn’t a kid anymore. It was time to start taking my financial future seriously. It was time to grow up. And it was time to start managing my money wisely.
But there was one small problem. Actually, it was a HUGE problem.
I had no idea how to do that, and I was completely alone.
While my life was filled with the most brilliant online marketers in the world who were always available for advice, it was a barren desert when it came to people who knew about money and wealth.
Like most Americans, I’d had grown up in a middle class family with parents who followed the same advice and path of their parents, which was simple:
1: Save regularly.
2: Hold your investments for very long periods.
3: Build a highly diversified portfolio of mutual funds.
4: Stay out of debt.
And hopefully by the time you’re 65, you’ll have just enough saved up to pay for your medications, doctor bills, taxes, groceries, and maybe the occasional Mediterranean cruise.
Now I didn’t know a lot about money at the time, but I knew enough to realize that this “standard” advice leads to:
- An unremarkable life of financial mediocrity and regret.
- A life of self-imposed financial slavery and limitations.
- A life where every decision you make is dictated by whether or not you can afford something.
- The fear that your retirement is mercilessly tied to the ups and downs of a market that you don’t understand, and that you cannot control.
As far as I’m concerned, that is not living. That’s dying slowly, while being tortured.
Over the past three years, I’ve sat and watched the dreams of an entire generation of “baby boomers” shattered because they didn’t have access to the right kind of information or investing strategies.
Instead of taking the advice of real mentors about wealth, they took the advice of wolves!
These predators included massive institutions who hire commission-based salesman whose sole purpose is not to make you money, but to sell you products and bring your money into their fee-riddled spider web.
And the craziest part, is that I could have been one of them! Believe it or not, the very first job I was going to take right out of college was as a financial advisor for one of the largest institutions in this country.
I was 23 years old and dead broke at the time, yet they wanted me to tell other people twice my age what to do with their money!
Most of the “investment industry” is all a sham designed to steal your money through fees, inflation, or outright fraud.
The fact is that the entire global financial system is sitting on a tipping point, facing down into an abyss of an economic depression. This same group of people, most of whom have no honor and no integrity and no interest in your well being, are the ones we trust with our life savings!
But what’s the alternative?
What can average ordinary people like you and I do with our money to accumulate real wealth and financial freedom? What are the steps?
I’ve seen and read dozens of books on financial literacy, but I have yet to find a single book on “Wealth Literacy”.
For example, I love Robert Kiyosaki and his work. I’ve had the privilege of spending several private and public hours on the phone with him, and I’ve even shared a seat in his board meetings.
He is the most honest and forthright financial educator in the world, and his message is simple. Robert Kiyosaki teaches you to start your own business, increase your financial education, and invest in cash-flow assets (like rental real estate properties.)
And that sounds great. But once again, I always ended up asking myself, “HOW!?”
What are the steps you need to take in order to actually make that investment, or to acquire those assets?
Well, that my friends is the “million dollar” question that I have obsessed over for the past three years. What I’ve learned has led to incredible wealth, while most of the world continues to slip into a natural period of decline.
So yes, it is possible to generate MASSIVE wealth today for you and your family.
I learned that the rich are doing it right now. The Elevation Group is all about pulling back the curtain to show you how.
Creating wealth in your life is about to get real, it’s about to get personal, and it’s about to get very detailed.
The Elevation Group was formed in December 2010 to unveil common-sense, forward-looking investment strategies. These strategies are often contrary to “conventional wisdom” (the same “wisdom” that has produced zero or negative gains over the past several years!)
As a first step, I invite you to view a FREE webinar that reviews WHY the U.S. and the world has arrived at this economic crisis and looks into the investment strategies that WORKED in 2011, and the economic conditions that will shape 2012 and beyond.
Use this link to watch this informative (and FREE) webinar NOW!
I have to admit that I passed on Mike’s invitation to join the Elevation Group when first introduced back in 2010. I have great admiration for his accomplishments in business. But – following him in the area of investments was a different story.
However, on my own, my personal investment strategies have paralleled The Elevation Group. If anything, Mike is MORE passionate about the absolute necessity to have a diversified portfolio – including precious metals. But I have to admit my personal efforts have not matched those recommended by The Elevation Group.
Membership in The Elevation Group includes strategies that have produced a 300% return on investment in 2011 – AND looks forward to economic conditions that will continue (and accelerate) into 2012 and beyond!
So I have become a believer! I have admitted my personal knowledge could not outpace the results achieved by following Mike’s “all star” team of financial advisors! I invite you to do the same!
