Investor Summit at Sea mystery faculty member to be announced

Someone (or two…) AWESOME!

Each year we put a LOT of invitations out.  Some of our BEST speakers are super busy and can’t promise to attend.  But that doesn’t mean they don’t show up at the last minute.  In the past, we’ve had many notable guests appear at the Summit AFTER we were already sold out including Robert Kiyosaki, Peter Schiff, Simon Black, Brien Lundin and Jim Rickards.   So no promises, but you never know (because we don’t) who might show up at the last minute …

There’s nowhere else you can get this much personal access to such high caliber experts all in one place for so many days…

Surely you’ll get at least ONE great idea that makes it all worth it!
