I think both of these quotes are absolutely perfect for the theme of this update today:
This one sent to me by Don L:
"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain."
-- Dolly Parton
And this one sent by Ric B.:
"People will throw stones at you. Don't throw them back. Collect them all and build an empire."
I'm really upset
Since last Friday's update, I have very seriously considering resigning
from this project... Having my lawyer draft a letter to the seller, the
board, and my partner, announcing my resignation and transferring
75% of my proceeds to my partner, Garry, in exchange for his management
of my side of this deal.
Here's why I have been thinking about this...
Last Friday's update I mentioned a video done by the seller where he
told an initial and very small group mostly Canadian residents that he
was fully anticipating a closure by the end of the first quarter.
Obviously meaning the end of this month / March.
He of course went on to say in the video, he expected his company to
receive closing proceeds by the end of March and then payment to those
early Canadian investors sometime shortly thereafter.
In my comments about this I mentioned the video was five minutes long.
Understand, I dictate these updates and when originally dictated I used
the word 'few' but somehow it became five, and this minor stupid issue
somehow became proof positive to the idiots amongst us that I am
therefore an incontrovertible liar because I said the video was five
minutes long and actually it was about 20 minutes long. And every one of those idiots had to send me an email letting me know how terrible a person I am.
Let me share with you an analogy:
I want you to understand what I'm dealing with so let me share a parable or story...
Let's just suppose that you have been selected as the sole remaining
candidate in your final interview with the CEO of a Fortune 100
company. This interview, upon a successful conclusion would land
you a job guaranteed to change your financial future and your family's
financial future forever.
In this example, this is the dream job you have prayed for all your
life. You have the skill sets, you will excel in this position, and you
know in your heart of hearts this is your next move, and it is your
In fact, at your last interview with human resources you were told, "the job is yours to lose."
So you drive downtown, park a couple blocks away, and begin towards your new destiny.
You are less than one minute from the door and out from the alley steps
a man with a gun, pointing it at your head, demanding your wallet, all
your valuables, all your jewelry, everything of value that you possess
and carry at that moment in time.
You are in fear and rightly so, of your life. You find yourself handing
over everything to this scumbag while praying he does not pull that
Now it's done, it's over, back into the alley he quickly recedes, and
you are left to open the door of the office building, ride the elevator
to the top floor and meet with the CEO - all the while possessing a
positive mental attitude, enthusiasm and a determination to be the best
you can be and land this dream job for life.
Do you think you could do it?
Do you think after having been violated, scared out of your wits,
demoralized, and shaken to the core, you could still be the same
positive person you were five minutes before?
I share this analogy with you as every single day I have 2, 3, 4 high level VIP meetings all relative to this deal.
And yet, no less than 20 times a day, I receive a letter accusing me of
being a liar, or questioning my credibility, questioning this deal,
asking me to explain what I meant in the last update, etc., etc., etc.
And I receive no less than a dozen phone calls a day and they are all
pretty much the same, you know, "Mike can you read to me the last
update, I didn't understand it." Or, "can you tell me something about
the deal you are not allowed to speak about?" Or, "can you tell me what
you're going to talk about in the next update?"
I hope you see where I am going here....
It is immensely difficult to stay up, passionate, witty, enthusiastic,
all while putting my best managerial skills forward to the benefit of
Would you believe there is even a group of people who think, because I
am starting and launching a new business, this is proof positive that I
know the deal isn't closing?
Otherwise with all the money I receive why would I need to make more?
These people simply do not know, it's not their fault, but they are not part of the 1%.
Why didn't Warren Buffet quit after he made his first 25 billion dollars? Who needs more?
The answer is simple, buying businesses and making money is what he
does. He is in his element when he does so. At 91 years old
Warren Buffet is still going strong. You see he understands this
If you have the ability and the skill set to make more money, lots of
it, you also have the obligation to do so, so that in the end either
while you are alive or afterwards you can pass along your vast
accumulation of wealth to help make the world a better place.
(You do not need to have 25 billion dollars to belong to the 1%.)
How about Jeff Besos? The second wealthiest man in the world. He built
Amazon to a juggernaut, which now functions on automatic pilot and he
turned it over to his top people to maintain the company while he
pursues other passions, I repeat "passions" that drive him and the 1%.
I'm not quitting
Relax - despite so many people being an absolute PIA, I'm not going anywhere.
I have come to realize these people represent a small puddle (actually
a mud puddle), compared to the beautiful blue ocean of people who 'get
it.' They support me, they appreciate my sacrifices, and they are
with me to the end.
NO ONE WANTS THIS DEAL CLOSED MORE THAN I DO!
From this day forward I will no longer answer any email, not even
acknowledge receipt of it, if it asks me any questions about payment,
clarification of what was said in an update (trust the content in spite
of the grammar), or to referee between sponsors and groups, any email
containing anything negative even just a word or two (in fact I will
not read those anymore).
Why?... I must stay up mentally with all the enthusiasm I can muster for those VIP meetings on the 'top floor.'
On one other minor note... Do not ask me for the video the seller did
with the celeb! I do not have it. I was told about it by the seller and
he specifically asked me not to send it to my partners. Primarily
because he is very well aware how some people want to take and twist
and turn everything I say or do into something ugly.
I'm sure you have noticed at the top of every update is an email and
phone number for Ivan. This being said, please practice courtesy when
deciding whether or not, to call or send Ivan another email. For every
1 email we get about a particular topic there are at least 10 more
asking the same basic question.
This is for those PIA people: LET US DO OUR JOBS, PLEASE!
Also, for the PIA 'mud puddle' crowd, all they need to do is ask themselves these questions:
1) Why would anyone in their right mind make such claims for an
enormous payout if not indeed authorized at some time by the Board
through this process.
2) Why would anyone in their right mind make themselves so visible for
so long, with their complete name, not some fictitious name (a strategy
used by scammers) all the while making their phone number, business
address, even bank accounts, public information.
Any thief, any con man, would have to be the dumbest thief alive to be so visible.
I make no apologies for the length of this update and the topic I cover.
I MUST HAVE RELIEF FOR THOSE TOP FLOOR VIP MEETINGS. I MUST!
Russia / Ukraine
A number of questions have come in so I will address this.
The war between Russia and Ukraine does not impact what we are doing AT ALL.
If South Korea were being invaded, by all means I would already be talking about it
All I can tell you today is what I told you Friday, except a little extra...
The seller has indeed on camera, expressed his intent to reach closure by the end of this month.
And I can tell you most assuredly from my most recent VIP meetings,
there is a flurry of activity going on right now to get us there.
Thank you for hearing me out, I appreciate it.
And realize, I just thought you should know what I'm dealing with daily
/ hourly, and I am certainly not accusing you of being any part of it.
Regarding phone calls and emails... PLEASE!
I JUST CAN'T KEEP UP RIGHT NOW BETWEEN CALLS AND EMAIL.
The reason I send these updates is to keep EVERYONE up to date on WHAT I CAN SHARE, all at the same time.
Please allow me to keep you up to date with what I CAN tell you as

YOU. I HOPE TO MEET YOU IN PERSON IN VEGAS VERY SOON, TO
CELEBRATE AND LEARN HOW TO STAY WEALTHY! AND AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF
THIS JOURNEY! I'LL HAVE YOU LAUGHING AND CRYING ALONG WITH ME!
I'll try to keep the crying part to a minimum. :- )
