As..always, I made the decision last minutes and decide to tag along with friend to check out this investment conference. Initially, I want to focus 100% on real estate but since deal is drying up – Heck, why not take a peek at other industry and see what’s other people up to?
Turned out it is the best conference that I ever attended and here is some of the reason why:
You become a more well-rounded investor after this conference:
Real Estate investor often focus on the nut and bolt on real estate investment we deal on the daily basis with contractor, property manager, lender, tenant, inspector, etc..and often forgot the big pictures. There is actually a huge world out there with so much other industry to invest and learn from. This conference did just that by bringing you pretty much niches of investment one could think of.
Plenty of quality vendors, speaker that attend and make this conference successful. You could learn anything from gold and silver mining, stock market, oil drilling, to different niches of real estate such as senior housing and vacation house investing. I was blow away on how big the world is when it come to investing.
Who have thought of buying a coffee farm or an orange tree to invest in another country? Well, it happens here.
One other thing I love about this conference is that it is orgranized in such a way that you have many speaker each has a different point of view. Imaging putting some guys like Peter Schiff on the same room with Ben Bernanke and watch them blow off on each other. that’s the kind of stuff that happening here. Very real debate, no bull shit and fake media coverage.
World Class Speaker:
I don’t know most of the speakers but I am pretty sure they earn the right to have an opinion and the right speak on the stage. My favorite season is probably the tax-free wealth with Tom explaining how to legally pay $0 taxes when you invest in real estate, or oil and gas drilling. Classic presentation but yet powerful
A closer look.
You might run into celebrity in the investment world:
You will catch a lot of famous people such as Robert Kiyosaki, Peter Schiff, Mike Larson The Real Estate Guys, etc.. Yes they are all key-note speaker at the event but what I like about them is that they also came to this event at a student and keep on learning every year. You can easily bump into Robert Kiyosaki at the vendor Halls asking vendor questions:
Or get Mike Larson to give you a list of his list of recommended stock for 2019

You get to hang out with like-minded people
It get pretty lonely in this business sometimes try to find the right person to bounce off idea. If you go to your mother in law and told her that you want to buy some oil wells and want to pump some oil out of the ground, she will think you are retarded. But here you have friend that invest along the side with you, and help you on your due diligence process. You have vendor that educated you on the drilling process, etc…

You will like the city! Location, location, location
This got nothing to do with the conference but I just love the city of New Orleans. Wonderful food, wonderful people , wonderful…strip club. Although you will have no time hanging outside the conference. This is an intense conference with seminar going from 7:00AM to 9:00PM. Be ready.
pretty awesome buffet near by our conference area. Came home with some extra idea and some extra lbs..
Favorite dish from the city – Chicken and Waffle
You can win..money
When i get a call that say congratulation you won $1000. I thought it was a scam and almost hang up but i am glad i did not! All the vendors in the conference is legit and they deliver what they said, on top of treating you with great food.
I won a $1000 Just because i am sincerely interested in oil and gas investment this time and pretty much spend time talking with all the oil and gas vendors that attended the conference.
The pay off wasn’t so bad! Other people with gold coin, silver coin, etc…I am happy with some fiat currency to take home.
Will I come back? Well, last time i said yes and plan for a trip in advance it never happened. So let’ just leave it as this. I recommend this conference to investor at all level. There are a lot to learn, bunch of friends to make and new idea to try out.
