Summit at Sea: Recap

Listen to the podcast here:


Recently Patrick Donohoe of Paradigm Life was able to join The Real Estate Guys Radio as a faculty member on their9th Annual Investors Summit at Sea. After more than a week of learning about and discussing real estate, the hosts of The Real Estate Guys Radio show (Robert Helms, Russell Grey and Bob Helms) did a live show that included a round table of all of the faculty members on the cruise ship.

More than education, the Summit is about relationships, enthusiasm, focus and family. Because of the unique environment created on a cruise ship, faculty and students often bring their families.  It’s proven to be a great opportunity to unite families around their pursuit of financial independence and prosperity. After one week of focused education, networking and outrageous fun, each faculty member shared their most important takeaways.

Round Table Members include:

  • Your host, Robert Helms
  • Co-host, Russell Gray
  • The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms
  • Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Real Estate Advisors, Ken McElroy and Wayne Palmer
  • International Real Estate Developer, Beth Clifford
  • Attorney, Mauricio Rauld
  • Real estate investor, developer and author, David Campbell
  • Financial strategist, Patrick Donohoe

Over two-thirds of the 2011 attendees, including the complete faculty and their families, immediately signed up to come back in 2012 to celebrate the 10th annual Investor Summit at Sea™.  It’s hard to describe the Summit experience, as several surveys described the event as “life changing”, “incredible”, “awesome” and “over the top”. To learn more about the upcoming “10th Annual Investor Summit at Sea” head over to The Real Estate Guys Radio site and sign up for their “Advanced Notice List” to get the details and have a chance to sign up before they roll it out to the world.
