Of Credit Default Swaps, Gov’t Responsibility and Being Non-Trendy: an OPEN FORUM on the Economic Crisis

7 Nov

Hello fellow Insiders!

What a great day we had on October 25th.The weather may have been gloomy here on the East Coast, but our members were ready to mix it up as we held our first OPEN FORUM on the State of the Economy.A number of our local members and their guestsjoined us at our offices as we held a friendly yet honest discussion on their concerns about this tumultuous economy.

Topics such as globalization, morality, personal fiscal responsibility, buying ‘puts’ and other more disciplined investing techniques, staying ahead of trends, and the true purpose of government were all discussed.While our President and COO, Heru Nekhet and Augustine Diji, respectively, opened with a detailing of the history of capitalism as well as a breakdown of where it’s going in the future, among the longest and most spirited of discussions was about Credit Default Swaps and just how convoluted the whole process is.It would take a long edition to explain these to you, but our forum was truly timely since the following night 60 MINUTES did a story on this type of investing.Check it out here for an explanation on just what ‘Swaps’ are:

Another of our most memorable exchanges focused on creating/re-creating your business to be Recession-Proof.As Heru explained, “The day of the 9-to-5 worker is dead. You can’t just go to college and then come back and run the steel mill in your town.You have to keep educating yourself.”He expounded on that by breaking it down that more and more big businesses will be hiring ”independent contractors”as opposed to regular staff in order to reduce overall costs.Another quality suggestion he presented is getting into services that use the economic crisis to your advantage, such as credit counseling, financial management, career counseling for people to learn new skills – as long as there is profit and need for it, you can be even more successful than you were doing during the ‘boom times’.

Everyone left with higher self-assurance that they can still succeed despite the recession.To get more advice on how to handle yourself and your money during this period, keep your eyes peeled to this blog and our email blasts.

Fundamentally Strong, Totally Wrong – but it doesn’t have to be…!

16 Sep

Hello again fellow Insiders!

I want to share with you how great is to see our new class of eager, thirsty for knowledge, soon-to-be financially free Insiders.

This past Sunday we started our September bloc of Financial Freedom classes and it was very illuminating. Our latest set of students came prepared with questions about the rotten economy and are pressed on learning the ‘insider secrets’ on how expand and protect their finances. It was a great experience and we look forward to giving them more keys to unlocking their minds for them to gain total financial freedom.

When the economic hammer comes down and you’re hit a lot less hard (it’s very difficult to not be totally untouched when the economy is so bad – even if it’s not you, it may be your spouse, sibling, parent, or close friend who’s affected – and their problems may touch you) you’ll be fortunate that you took our classes. If you haven’t taken any courses, or purchased any manuals such as our ‘Credit Repair Kit’ or ‘Insider Secrets to Foreclosure and Short Sales kit,’ or haven’t looked into any other options outside of your regular job to generate income, you need to work quickly at attaining the skills to do so today.

Republican presidential nominee John Sidney McCain said yesterday that, “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” Not to get political, but every working man, woman or child who buys their own food or has to drive or even take the train to go to work everyday, understands that even if the spirit of our economy (or any economy for that matter) are strong, the base of it is broken. Just looking at the past two days headlines with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the sale of Merrill Lynch, and the scrambling of AIG to save themselves proves that no one’s job is secure when our country’s most reliable financial institutions are crumbling.

Look out soon for more product launches from us to help you get on the fast track to attaining the financial freedom and peace of mind that you’ve been searching for.

Sincerely,

Curtis John
