My Dream and Vision For Gold For Life

Hi,

This post, unlike every other post, is not about creating profit with investing, is not about how to increase your ROI, it’s not about retirement and it’s not about creating increasing financial wealth with Gold & Silver…

It’s about something fundamentally much more important than that, it’s about whether or not you really want to give us your money, trust us and go on this journey with us, or not…

Right here, I’m talking about trust and alignment.

I’m not sure what stage of interacting with us you’re reading this, whether you’ve been following me and Gold For Life for years or you’re absolutely new…

But this post will show you where our heart is, where our values are and what our vision is. I’ve laid it all out right here in this post.

So you can decide whether we connect on a higher level, not just a profit or wealth creation level.

After reading this, you’ll know what my vision is, whether it sits with your vision and whether we’re a right fit for you or not, not just for helping you generate a return on investment, at this stage with all our results, I think I can help anyone do that…

I’m a strong believer in “teamwork makes the dream work”, and in the business world there is no stronger team that creates dreams than the team of customers and sellers, I wanted to put my vision out there, let you know what we’re striving for everyday so you can decide whether you align with it, or not…

My Inspiration…

I was very inspired by how Steve Jobs, the co-creator of Apple Computers, described and held the vision for the computers they make. He called them appliances. Why? Because when computers started, they were very complicated, only “geeks” who knew about mother boards, screens, keyboards and had a shed full of tools could actually assemble one… After that, they’d have to use “code” to speak to the computer…

Put simply, it was out of the reach of everyone but the 0.05% of a wealthy society that were geeks…

He always spoke about using a Macintosh as an appliance, comparing it to a refrigerator or washing machine or a microwave, plug, play, use, benefit.

More importantly, they just work, you don’t need to know how the temperature control relays to the refrigeration compartment as you turn down the temperature, you don’t need to worry about how the thermostat automatically relays that the temperature is low enough or high enough…

IT JUST WORKS.

He held this vision and today it still rings true in all of the products Apple makes, the one thing people say about iPhones and iPad’s and even Mac’s if they transition from a Windows machine is “This is so simple”…

I recently transitioned a friend from a Windows laptop to a Mac, and he was blown away by the simplicity, his exact words were “How does this machine know what I want to do before I want to do it!?”

They work like magic.

This really struck me when I was teaching Real Estate, as you know if you’ve read the About Minesh section, or attended any of my presentations, I started negotiating real estate deals at the age of 16, I did my first deal at 17 going on 18.

I did my first talk on real estate negotiation and how to buy new build properties and negotiate them at the age of 16 and a half (can’t forget the half, even now!) to a room full of about 80 investors all with multiple hundreds of thousands ready to buy real estate…

I had a gift, it was the ability to, “not give a damn” in the negotiation, I didn’t have empathy holding me back, I could negotiate, walk away, go harder, squeeze to the limit and really be what I call now, “an asshole” (excuse my profanity) in a negotiation.

Because I had no life experience, I made a lot of enemies back then too, because I’d win, and not create a win-win situation.

Anyway so we started teaching these seminars about negotiating these Real Estate deals and I’d walk people through my approach, what to say, how to say it, who to contact and basically be the “killer” I was, I blueprinted it…

Some were very successful, we helped one gentleman using the very same techniques buy a £500,000 3 property portfolio in 30 days with a £35,000 immediate cash-back on completion with absolutely no money down…

But MOST people? It didn’t work for…

The techniques I was teaching them, while they were a blueprint, it’s impossible to replicate the emotional blueprint it required to execute them…

Put it simply, people with life experience, people who’d experienced failure, rejection, stared in the eyes of people they’d hurt in the past, basically most people with a heart that couldn’t just switch onto “business”, couldn’t make it work long term…

Sure they’d do one deal, maybe two, but then they’re empathic side wouldn’t let them continue…

Which means the strategies we taught had an average success rate, like everyone else in the investment education space of 3%-8%.

This meant 92-97% of the people that paid us money, couldn’t execute the strategies we taught them.

We then incorporated stock market trading and options trading as we were also doing that… The problem? To make any real money FAST, which is what everyone “promises” right? You have to use leverage. Most people in a Forex account today use 200 to 1 leverage. Which means you put up £1, they lend you £200. Which also means, your £200 position moves just 0.5% down, and you are at a 100% loss on your capital.

This meant that most people, with jobs, with businesses, with children, with what’s commonly known as a LIFE, could’t manage the leverage, even though the strategies worked, they just couldn’t execute 100% on time when they needed to…

It worked really great for some, but not great for the rest.

I decided to stop doing what I was doing, take a break and just go to Monaco, which is my favourite place on the planet.

I literally took a flight that weekend, headed to the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco, which I really love as it sits over the most difficult bend in the Monaco F1 and literally “hangs” over the sea…

I’m sat there, just thinking about what I really want to create, of course I can continue making money teaching what we’re doing, the actual doing didn’t take much time, and the business was a great cash cow for further investment resources, I wasn’t going to stop it, my choice was, continue doing the same or choose a different direction…

At that point, I felt this sudden urge to write… I pull my pen out, have no paper so take the hotels napkin, and I start simplifying investing, start really looking at the essence of what we do with every investment vehicle, I mean to the bare bone of it, forget the vehicle, forget the day to day actions, what is the ESSENCE of it…

And this is when I drew the Wealth Triangle Philosophy which if you might have heard me talking about in any reports or workshops…

This was the essence, and what I realised was that this was working for me right there, it was growing my wealth as I was sitting in Monaco, with the breathing space to think, to dream, to decide where I wanted my life to go…

I realised in that moment what my mission was. To show people how to strategically grow their wealth, safely, so that they can live the life they choose, create the world changing ventures they want to create, have the time to find whatever is in their heart that the world needs and then have the time to create it.

At this point, I saw my iPhone, and Steve Jobs popped back into my mind, and the thoughts of making the Macintosh into an appliance came flooding back in…

At this point, I realised that the objective of my company is to turn long term, safe investing into an appliance that anyone, regardless of experience, past performance or future goals, could use.

Like a plug and play device.

Call it divine intervention, call it a string of coincidences, call it the Monaco air, that afternoon was just inspiring and magical for me.

Questions started flooding into my mind…

“What if we could turn investing into an appliance?”

“How would that change the lives of people?”

“How could we change the way parents invest for their children?”

“How could we change the level of security people feel for their retirement?”

“How many inspiring ventures and people would be giving their gift to the world because of us?”

and then… the doubts…

“Can investing actually be an appliance?”

“What if I’m just special and I’m “meant” to do this?”

What if, what if, what if…

Luckily, I didn’t lose my brash teenage arrogance, it had sort of evolved into a brash confidence and I decided the goal was scary enough and big enough to follow, after all, I could always go back to speaking on stage about the other stuff if it didn’t work and I was okay for cash, I’d built up a pretty good amount of burn capital…

In that moment, I decided to find out how to make investing an appliance…

To find a community of people who want to strategically grow their wealth, long term, like the wealthiest.

I lost a lot of my original “following”, because to be honest, this isn’t “fast money”, you’re not making 10-50% in a month like you could with Options, you’re not getting huge one off pay days like you could with real estate…

You’re building wealth. Solid. Long term. Wealth.

This was my mission when we first launched Gold For Life in December 2010.

I’m writing this on the 21st of July 2014, and in the last 3 years and 8 months, we’ve got clients generating successful results in 20 countries, a wall of never-ending client success stories from people who are doctors, lawyers, investors, pilot’s, mum’s, internet entrepreneurs, real estate investors and many more, we had an independent consultant verify via a survey our clients and found that we had a 92% success rate with our program, the average client spends less than 20 minutes a month managing their investment and the average ROI is between 1%-2.2% per month…

We did it. I’m so confident now, that I know, ANYONE can do this.

So my vision for Gold For Life? Is to get this program into the hands of people who align with what we’re doing, who want to build long term wealth strategically…

People who want to be and are strategic investors’.

I only want to work with people with this intention now. I’ve had the most fun, some of my best life memories and seen some great results for people in the last 4 years. I’ve never been happier in my heart than helping people with this mission.

You know by now that I’m not attached to Gold & Silver, this cycle has come, it will end, we will move on together… What I’m passionate about is helping people build wealth strategically.

I know this will never be a mass market product, it’ll never be a product we can just “sell” to everyone, why? Because it’s too simple, it has no “shiny object attraction”, it has no testosterone attached to it, it doesn’t spike up fear and greed levels in someone…

It is just a solid, proven, strategic wealth building tool…

I could never be happier!

I came into this game after attending a seminar by my amazing friend Mark Anastasi and feeling the greed of wanting to make £100,000 from a 90 minute talk like I saw him do…

It took me 7 years to realise… I want to build a company that helps people, that want to be helped, to live life to the full.

I don’t care if this company does a hundred million dollars in revenue or not, as long as it’s always helping like minded people implement the life free-ing investment tools we’ve created.

I love the community of people we have and continue to attract.

Through Gold For Life I want to create a global community of strategic investors, create friendships for people that last a lifetime and experiences that you will never forget.

That’s my dream. Whether there’s 50 of us, or 50,000 of us, doesn’t matter, as long as it’s the right people.

Through Gold For Life we’re taking away the number 1 stressor affecting people right now, money. The lack of the security of which, breaks up families, it destroys marriages, it prevents people from being together and it stops dreams from coming to fruition.

To be honest, a weird esoteric part of me, face it we all have at-least one side like that, knows that through this community we can change consciousness around wealth in the world. We can directly affect the way people think about growing wealth. Most importantly, we can increase the happiness there is in the world.

I learned a long time ago that to achieve happiness, all you have to do is take away everything that’s preventing it from expressing itself, it’s not something to be chased, but rather something to be revealed…

You know I received an email from a client who is a Mum, and has her whole family using Gold For Life, more importantly, she has a 2 year old son, and another newborn and she’s putting some money away for each of them using Gold For Life to grow them a fund. What would have happened if we weren’t here?

It’s because of the work we do, that investing success has become not a “chance” or a “bet” or a “hope”, it’s become a certainty for people.

And we’ll continue to do the work it takes to find the people that align with what we’re creating. An international community of strategic investors.

Currently, we have proven Gold For Life’s strategy with normal people investing profitably using the same strategy in all the following 20 countries:

Austria
Australia
Bermuda
Canada
China
France
Ireland
Scotland
Spain
UAE
UK
Venezuela
USA
Bahrain
Germany
Hongkong
Mexico
Norway
Singapore
Bahamas

We’re growing every single day as more people realise they align with our values.

Thank you for reading this, I think it’s important for every person who gives me any money, trusts me with any of their time, to know my intention knows what fuels the company on a “bigger” level, and be aligned to it.

Is this right for you? Am I the person you want to come on this journey with? Is this strategy right for your needs? Is this community who you want to be a part of? Can you see yourself helping people in the way I’ve described?

Only you can answer that, but now you should have a clear idea of where my heart and this company’s heart is now after reading this post…

You decide.  🙂

10 years later, and we’re just getting started.

It sounds like what I’ve looking for also gold & silver is the place to be & where I’m investing ,but what happens when the market is correcting 10% in a two month period,or running up in 5-10% moves in 1-2-3 month periods I don’t get how that will work mostly on the down side. I am also very concerned about how the huge dollar devaluation that is coming will effect me with my dollars in the market.
