Robert Kiyosaki was with us in 2018 for his 5th Investor Summit at Sea™

 

Is Robert Kiyosaki coming back in 2019???

We invited him!  Now we’re just waiting for the answer … but rumor has it he wants to!

 

Why would the best-selling personal finance author in the history of the world spend several days on a cruise ship with a couple of radio talk show hosts and 200 of our closest friends?

(Hint:  It’s not the money.  We can’t afford to pay him what he’s worth, so we don’t)

In his own words…

People LOVE the Summit …

 

We get it…

 

When WE brag about the Summit, it’s just a sales pitch.  Fair enough.

 

But after 15 straight years of taking surveys and getting RAVE reviews – and even more importantly, having a HUGE percentage of repeat registrations, we’re pretty confident the Summit ROCKS!

 

But we’ll shut up about it (for now) and let our Summiteers share their thoughts on why the Investor Summit at Sea is SO AMAZING …

 

 

 

Of course, Robert Kiyosaki isn’t the only best-selling author and investing expert that’s a MULTI-TIME Summit faculty member.  The list is long and distinguished, including Peter Schiff, Tom Hopkins, G. Edward Griffin, and Chris Martenson.

 

Each year, we record at least one episode of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show while we’re on the ship.  Last time, we had SO many faculty members, we recorded TWO full shows with our all-star faculty’s reflections on our epic adventure together.

 

 

 

As you’ll hear, none of our faculty are hired guns.  They all LOVE the Summit and give GENEROUSLY of the time and wisdom … and that’s why so many come back year after year after year.

 

And it’s not just the faculty who LOVE the Summit and come back year after year …

 

                       

 

Check out these comments on the surveys from our previous Summits:

“It opened up new possibilities for me. Lots of great information from everyone.” – Bob G.,  California, USA

 

“Exceeded expectations!  My favorites sessions were on exchanging because it was life changing, and on due diligence for pure wisdom.” – Christopher P., California, USA

 

Most important concept I learned is that good things can happen when you get out of your comfort zone.– Sandy C., Texas, USA

 

“The people lost the most money were those who ‘saved’ the price of admission by not coming.  Outstanding job!” – Rob K., New Jersey, USA

 

And there’s a LOT more where those came from.  But you get the idea.

 

And now you may be wondering …

 

How much does the Summit cost?

 

If you attend … or if you don’t?

 

Consider the value of just ONE great idea, opportunity, or strategic relationship!

 

Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll personally profit from your Summit experience.  But we’re pretty sure none of the smart, high-powered people on the next Summit will be headed to your house anytime soon.

 

Put yourself in a position to find that next great idea or relationship…

 

The Summit is the ULTIMATE investing education and networking event.  And it ALWAYS sells out.

 

We’ve been at this for fifteen years.  No one has EVER walked away saying the Summit wasn’t totally worth the time and expense.  In fact, over 75% of the people on last year’s Summit re-registered… without having any idea who was coming or where we were going.

Yeah.  It’s THAT awesome.

 

Remember … just ONE great idea or relationship can make all the time and expense totally worth it.

Our Most Important Summit Yet

Join The Real Estate Guys for the 2014 Investor Summit at Sea

World leaders and banking elite have sometimes secret summits to make their plans for managing the global economy.  What they decide affects YOU…whether you like it or not.

Isn’t it time YOU and other investors got together with the best and brightest experts to make YOUR plans to grow and protect your wealth from whatever the central planners decide?

We think so.

That’s why we’re proud to bring you the 12th Annual Investor Summit at Sea™ featuring an amazing line up of speakers like Peter Schiff, Ken McElroy, Tom Hopkins and MANY, MANY more!  And NEW!!! Simon Black of Sovereign Man will be with us in 2014!!!

There are experts in real estate investing, economics, precious metals, oil & gas, infinite banking, asset protection, syndication, real estate development, and even sales.

It’s intense. But it’s fun.

Robert Kiyosaki came in 2012 and loved it.  But don’t take our word for it. Click here to hear directly from Robert.

The timing couldn’t be more important.  The world is changing at an amazing pace.  The Summit is your opportunity to discover trends, develop strategies, make connections and get away from the daily grind to focus on your future.

Where else on earth can you go to get a week with this caliber of thought leaders?  Nowhere.  It doesn’t exist.

And this Summit won’t exist for long either.  The ship is filling up and even the Summit isn’t until March, we’re running out of space.

We know it’s a big decision.  It’s a lot of time and money.  But in the past 11 years we’ve never had anyone say it wasn’t worth it.  So we want to strongly encourage you to seize the day and reserve your spot today.

Cruise with Peter Schiff!

 

Cruise with Peter Schiff!

 

Peter Schiff is the CEO and Chief Global Strategist for Euro-Pacific Capital and Euro-Pacific Precious Metals. He's the author of the best-selling books Crash Proof and The Real Crash.You may have seen Peter Schiff on one his many appearances on financial media like MSNBC, Fox Business News and CNN.Peter Schiff discusses strategies on how to hedge agains the Fed on Fox Business News

But now you can enjoy an entire week learning and talking with Peter and the rest of a world-class faculty aboard a luxurious cruise ship during the 18th annual Investor Summit at Sea™!

Think about all that’s going on in the world…things that affect YOUR finances.

  • Central banks around the world, led by the Fed’s unprecedented amounts of “quantitative easing”, have flooded the global economy with currency.  Many countries are experiencing NEGATIVE interest rates!   Attempts to normalize have failed … just as Peter predicted.
  • The stock market is roaring back.  Will the party last or is another bubble brewing?
  • The U.S. is election remains one of the most controversial in recent memory, and 2020 is right around the corner.  How will partisan politics affect the global economy and YOUR investments?
  • Real estate values have risen, but are flattening out.  The population is growing and more people are renting.  Is there still money to be made in real estate?

Are you ready to mitigate risks and capitalize on the opportunities?

When you attend the Investor Summit at Sea™, you’ll enjoy more than a week of education, networking, conversations and total focus on new strategies and opportunities to profit from what’s coming.

There are seminars, panels, roundtable discussion, small group dinners with faculty members, and private cocktail receptions.

This isn’t the same group of experts you see on the circuit of every other investment conference.  You’ll get new ideas, fresh perspectives and an eye-opening dynamic from experts in real estate, precious metals, oil & gas, infinite banking, global economics and more!  Serious investors are concerned about what’s happening in the world.  But they also know with every challenge comes great opportunity.  This may the most important investment you make this year.

4/17/11: Live from our 9th Annual Investor Summit at Sea!

For the ninth straight year, The Real Estate Guys™ and an energized group of committed real estate investors boarded a cruise ship for a week of powerful education, networking and fun. And as is our tradition, while on board we recorded a radio show with a live studio audience.

We call this annual event our Investor Summit at Sea™ because Summit means “the highest point of attainment or aspiration: the summit of one’s ambition; the highest state or degree”. 

More than education, the Summit is about relationships, enthusiasm, focus and family. Because of the unique environment created on a cruise ship, faculty and students often bring their families.  It’s proven to be a great opportunity to unite families around their pursuit of financial independence and prosperity.

Reflecting on their Summit experience from the Mad Hatter’s Lounge on the Carnival Miracle:

  • Your host, Robert Helms
  • Co-host, Russell Gray
  • The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms
  • Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Real Estate Advisor, Ken McElroy
  • International Real Estate Developer, Beth Clifford
  • Attorney, Mauricio Rauld
  • Financial strategist, Patrick Donohoe

After one week of focused education, networking and outrageous fun, each faculty member share their most important takeaways. Over two-thirds of the 2011 attendees, including the complete faculty and their families immediately signed up to come back in 2012 to celebrate our 10th annual Investor Summit at Sea™.  It’s hard to describe the Summit experience, as several surveys described the event as “life changing”, “incredible”, “awesome” and “over the top”.

How can a simple real estate investment conference have such a powerful impact? Tune in as our prestigious faculty tries to distrill their experience into a one hour radio show – and consider the power of just one great idea, relationship or commitment.

12/12/10: International Real Estate for Resort, Investment or Safe Haven – Pros and Cons of a Changing Landscape

Whew!  That’s a big title.  But it’s fitting for a big topic – one that reminds us that the world is not only getting smaller, but is changing rapidly.

Money, jobs and people are moving around the world like never before. And while fewer people may feel rich coming out of this recession, there are other good reasons many are still looking at international real estate – both as an investment strategy and a safe haven hedge against inflation.

While we were at the International Property Congress in Miami Beach, in addition to talking big picture economics with National Association of Realtor’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun and Federal Reserve Bank VP Thomas Cunningham (see our 11/21/10 show), we sat down and talked about who’s buying international real estate, where and why.

Behind our well-traveled microphones for an international chat-fest:

  • Your host, the internationally renowned Robert Helms
  • Your co-host and internationally obscure Russell Gray
  • The man who has seen more changing landscapes than a migrant farm worker, the eternally international Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms
  • Special Guest #1: International Property Journal reporter, Kevin Brass
  • Special Guest #2: Representative from SECOVI, a Brazilian real estate trade association, Flavio Amary

It’s no secret that every country in the world has it’s own unique strengths and weaknesses.  As the dominant economy in the world, Americans have long enjoyed a uniquely stable and high quality of life.  It wasn’t necessary or commonplace to travel abroad.  Even today, the  majority of Americans do not have passports.

However, the world is changing.  The US dollar, while still the dominant currency, is facing serious challenges.  Job losses, deficit spending, an aging populace and huge unfunded entitlements are all piling up on Uncle Sam.  Meanwhile, other countries are emerging as powerful economies in their own right – most notably China.

But this isn’t an episode about the woes facing the US.  These aren’t the first challenges and they won’t be the last.  Every country has its ups and downs.

This episode is about discovering how and why the dynamics of the world’s economies are changing the way people are approaching real estate.

While we’re more traveled than the average American, we took the opportunity while in Miami to connect with Kevin Brass.  Kevin has been covering the international real estate industry for over 20 years and his articles and analyses have been regular features in the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times.  Today, Kevin writes for the International Property Journal.  His work takes him all around the globe and keeps him connected with many industry leaders worldwide.  In this episode, Kevin shares his perspectives on the changing landscape of international real estate.

We also discuss some recent changes to the once vaunted tax and privacy advantages of Panama, who recently entered into an information sharing agreement with the United States.  Tax and privacy advantages are often a prime motivator for people to acquire real estate and move to a particular country.  Is what happened in Panama a portend of things to come?

Of course, what would an episode on international real estate be without an interview with someone with one of those really intriguing accents?  We were privileged to find someone who not only sounds really cool, but has some very useful things to share with us about the robust economy of Brazil.  If you haven’t been paying attention to Brazil, you may be surprised to hear about what’s happening there.  Hint: not everyone’s in a recession.

Buone Feste, Boas Festas, Felices Fiestas, Frohe Festtage, Wesołych Świąt, Bonnes vacances, Sarbatori Fericite and Happy Holidays!

7/25/10: Entrepreneurs in the New Economy – Getting Paid to Solve Problems

Do you remember the old “new” economy? That was the one where technology companies could go public without profit.  In some cases, they didn’t even need revenue. Ahhhh, those were the days.

The new “new” economy (the Great Recession one) hasn’t been nearly as fun – unless you’re an old school entrepreneur.  That’s the kind who looks at problems as opportunities.  Guys (and gals) like that are having a lot of fun right now because there are opportunities galore coming out of the Great Recession.

The Real Estate Guys™ headed off to Freedom Fest in Las Vegas a few weeks back.  We heard that money manager / economist / author / Senate candidate Peter Schiff would be there (among many other people with very strong opinions about the U.S. economy) and we wanted to do some interviews.  We’re happy to report we got lots of great stuff, including Mr. Schiff and the CEO of Forbes Magazine, Steve Forbes.  Watch for those interviews in future broadcasts.

So we fly into Las Vegas in our private jet (the one operated by Southwest Airlines), and get to the convention venue and start setting up our booth.  Before the event had even started, a man stops by and sees our banner for Belize (we were promoting our upcoming field trip to Belize) and asks a few questions.  The short of it is that we find out he’s working on a very exciting project in the Caribbean – one that solves a problem we’ve been trying to figure out too.  Russ gets so excited that he hugs the guy. Very weird.

After the appropriate apologies and some follow up male bonding, our new friend agrees to do a radio interview.  And that’s what this broadcast is all about.

Manning the microphones for this edition of The Real Estate Guys™ Radio Show:

  • Your host, the Larry King of real estate radio, Robert Helms
  • Co-host, our “I love you, man” booth babe, Russell Gray
  • Special Guest, Investment Banker, Entrepreneur and assault victim, Jeff Villwock

Any time we get around smart people, we jump on the opportunity to talk with them. In this case, Russ literally jumped on Jeff.  When Jeff recovered, we got him on the mic, so you can listen to what he’s doing, where he’s doing it and why.  There’s lots of lessons to be gleaned!

Freedom Fest is an event that attracts people with strong political opinions.  In many of the interviews we did there, those opinions come out.  Great!  We think the world works better when people respectfully debate important issues.  Sharing ideas is among the most sacred of our freedoms, especially if you’re radio guys.

We also realize that the U.S. (the bulk of our audience) is pretty polarized right now.  Now, we love our entire audience and our show isn’t political.  However, policies affect economics and economics affects real estate. There shouldn’t be a serious student of real estate who can look at the last several years and deny that.  So politics are going to get into the discourse from time to time, which is a very good thing.

We think these Freedom Fest interviews are great.  If you disagree with the political views of our guests, don’t let that get in the way of hearing what’s being said.  Here’s why:  a big part of real estate investing is understanding demographics and human nature. How people think and believe affects where they (and their money) will be moving.  Even if you disagree with them, if they believe it, it will affect their actions. So YOU need to understand them (even if you disagree) if you want to anticipate their behavior.

Did we mention that Jeff’s project is in St. Kitts?  It just so happens that St. Kitts is one of the stops on our upcoming 9th Annual Summit at Sea!  So we ask Jeff if we can visit his project as part of our already planned real estate shore excursion in St. Kitts. Not only does Jeff agree to allow us to visit, he says he’ll meet us there and show us around.  Awesome!

Once again, we’re reminded of the importance of getting out of our cubicles and into the world where real people are. No doubt that virtual networking is powerful, but just as phones did not replace face to face meetings, neither will social media replace conventions as a great place to make important connections.  This is one of the reasons we attend trade shows and promote our field trips and the Summit at Sea™.  It’s a great way to get to know great people in the real world.  We hope to see YOU at one very soon!

7/4/10: Profiting from Your Vacation – Exploring New Markets in Your Bathing Suit

Most people don’t get into real estate investing because they like tenants, toilets and all the tribulations you go through. And most of the time, they don’t get into properties they would like to live in or visit on vacation.  In fact, most investors would be happy if they never saw their properties.  That’s probably why stock investing is so popular.  You just buy a line item on your brokerage statement.  You never visit the company or meet the management.  It’s all very sterile and anesthetized.  Maybe that’s why you almost can’t feel it when the stock market gives you a networthectomy.  But we digress (how unusual).

Anyway, with summer time in full swing and people heading off for a well-deserved vacation, we thought it would be refreshing to talk about how to combine real estate business with vacationing pleasure.

In the radio mini-van, headed to the beach of broadcasting for fun in the sun and investing too:

  • Your host and mini-van driver, Robert Helms
  • Captain Speedo, Russell Gray
  • The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob “Board Shorts” Helms

Before we hit the road of conversation we do a quick check of the packing list.  Did we remember to pack our investor mindset?  What about our notebook to keep track of our ideas, conversations and those all important (potentially) tax-deductible expenses?

We’re all good, so off we go!

Since most people don’t vacation in C-class neighborhoods, we start our conversation on the idea of resort area investing.  But as soon as we jump out of the mini-van, we are faced with that ugly limiting belief, “I can’t afford it”.  It’s easy to look at real estate in a beautiful area and disqualify yourself before you even get started.  So we talk about how to push through the traffic of doubt in one’s mind by asking the question, “How can I afford it?”

We decide to ride this train of thought and talk about the importance of getting the right answers and advisors, by learning how to ask the right questions. Bad questions yield bad answers.  It’s like, “Which Speedo looks best on Russ?”  That’s a bad question (and worse visual) with no good answer.

Of course, we can’t miss the opportunity for some shameless self-promotion, so we hang a u-turn on the notion of making one’s vacation an opportunity to look for real estate.  What about the idea of using a real estate trip as a vacation? Many of our listeners have come with us on our Investor Summit at Sea™ or field trips to Belize, Cabo San Lucas or other fun places we’ve gone.  Even though the main purpose of the trip is to look at real estate, is it against the rules to have fun?  So, when time and budget is limited, it just makes good sense to leverage your vacation / real estate “research and development” budgets.

We have a fun time with this show.  We think you’ll like it too!
