The EconoSummit and the Club itself, are both very well run. I joined the Club after Mike Lathigee spoke at FreedomFest in July 2016. I understand the enormous amount of work (even in spite of future economic returns expected for the manager) it takes to keep an organization growing, functioning, and making money; organizing meetings and conferences; and keeping new deals flowing in and old deals performing. I really like and appreciate the club meeting videos so I can keep up on the education and deal reports.
The 2019 EconoSummit was even better than 2018! I appreciate the well rounded topic list covering the four club objectives: health, community, learning, and investing to make money. For a relatively small conference, the breadth of speakers and topics is very good. I especially appreciate the emphasis on taking action and the caliber of other members. This year was my first time to stay at The Orleans Hotel. I found the hotel and casino very well maintained, all staff polite and helpful, the rooms very well maintained, and the entire experience very positive. The special rates, the discounted resort fee, and the no parking fee made this stay a pleasant bargain.
I have invested in a number of projects through the Club. For example, I invested $25K in Eastlake in Oct. 2018, and although there was expectation of it maturing faster than Venture Fit, I was pleasantly surprised in Feb. 2019 to receive a 1% distribution/return of capital (and then another one in March 2019). I also invested $40K in the fitness acquisition fund in Jan. 2019 – and appreciate the Club’s and Jeff’s strategy of building a synergistic company in order to ensure a higher multiple cash-out in the future. I also appreciate the opportunity to be able to profit from previous forward-thinking Club work in building the gym concept. The fact that Mark Skousen was an investing member played into my “reassurance factor” in making these investments. I look forward to continuing to add to my investments through the Club. Well done, and mahalo!
