Start the conversation
By the time I retired as a university professor last year, I had seen thousands of gifted students pass through my doors.
Invariably, I would try to give them what passed for advice.
One of these bits of wisdom stemmed from a question a student posed years ago. "If you could only give a single piece of advice," he asked, "what would it be?"
My answer became a staple in all my classes from that point forward.
"You may not believe it," I told him, "but someday you are going to be able to pay the rent. Once that happens, what's it going to be that gets you out of bed in the morning?"
I would pose this as a question and listen to their answers. Then I would leave them with the real point I wanted to make…
"For me," I told them, "it is all about keeping up the excitement and anticipation. You do this very simply. Each morning, challenge yourself to push the envelope: pose a new question, solve a new problem, reexamine a situation from a new perspective, or just refuse to admit defeat."
It's the way I have lived this life, one that has seen some rather unexpected turns.
One of them is happening right now in Fort Lauderdale. It's a change so stunning, I can barely contain my excitement and anticipation this time.
It's a way for ALL investors to get in on direct energy investing deals…
Shocking the Market (Part One)
Today, Marina and I are in sunny Florida for a series of meetings that began yesterday and continue this morning with individuals involved in oil and gas financing.
As a result, what may be coming is the next major advance I have in mind to allow average retail investors into the big-time deals that finance oil and gas projects, providing some huge profits along the way.
Of course, we had already broken this ground with Money Map Project #1, the first-ever multi-well project funded by small investors. As described in an earlier issue, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had changed its regulations governing these deals, effective at the end of September. These new rules allowed smaller guys to participate directly in owning parts of oil and gas production.
Prior to these changes, and continuing to today with the "normal" way drilling is financed, a few fat cats would invest anywhere from $500,000 to several million in the deal. In the end, you'd be left with no more than a handful of guys waiting to rake in the profits.
But our approach was completely different – and here's why it took the market completely by surprise.
