Our Club President
Mike Lathigee, has spent the last ten years rebuilding his reputation after the collapse of his
last company. Here are some words from several of the club members who have interacted
I am a brand-new member. I definitely look forward to future opportunities working with
Mike Lathigee and being part of the Club. When talking with other members during EconoSummit
2019, it was clear that they hold Mike in high regard. I am very impressed with
Mike’s knowledge, experience, and professionalism.
– Brandon Schnuelle
I have been involved with Mike Lathigee in investment clubs for 12 years. Mike’s micro and
macroeconomics teachings have empowered me in my investment portfolios, personal
development, and career opportunities. The experience has led me to multiple streams of
income and financial independence. The Club keeps me on track. I like what was said at the
recent EconoSummit… “Alone you can go fast. Together, we can go far.” That’s so true!
– Rich Durepos
I joined the Club at the Money Show in Las Vegas in May 2018. So far, my experience has
been good. I am particpating in the Club’s investments in California fitness centers.
– Warren L. Fischer
The EconoSummit and the Club itself, are both very well run. I joined the Club after Mike
Lathigee spoke at FreedomFest in July 2016. I understand the enormous amount of work
(even in spite of future economic returns expected for the manager) it takes to keep an organization
growing, functioning, and making money; organizing meetings and conferences;
and keeping new deals flowing in and old deals performing. I really like and appreciate the
club meeting videos so I can keep up on the education and deal reports.
The 2019 EconoSummit was even better than 2018! I appreciate the well-rounded topic
list covering the four club objectives: health, community, learning, and investing to make
money. For a relatively small conference, the breadth of speakers and topics is very good. I
especially appreciate the emphasis on taking action and the caliber of other members. This
year was my first time to stay at The Orleans Hotel. I found the hotel and casino very well
maintained, all staff polite and helpful, the rooms very well maintained, and the entire experience
very positive. The special rates, the discounted resort fee, and the no parking fee
made this stay a pleasant bargain.
I have invested in a number of projects through the Club. For example, I invested $25K in
Eastlake in Oct. 2018, and although there was expectation of it maturing faster than Venture
Fit, I was pleasantly surprised in Feb. 2019 to receive a 1% distribution/return of capital
(and then another one in March 2019). I also invested $40K in the fitness acquisition fund in
Jan. 2019 – and appreciate the Club’s and Jeff’s strategy of building a synergistic company
in order to ensure a higher multiple cash-out in the future. I also appreciate the opportunity
to be able to profit from previous forward-thinking Club work in building the gym concept.
The fact that Mark Skousen was an investing member played into my “reassurance
factor” in making these investments. I look forward to continuing to add to my investments
through the Club. Well done, and mahalo!
– Neil Bates
I have known Mike for eight years and appreciate access to investments through the Club
that would not be available to me otherwise. It’s a great learning experience to be exposed
to new ideas. The investments offered to Club members over the last several years have
done very well. Through the Club, I’ve received an outstanding education not just on investing,
but also on economics, politics, health, and community involvement.
– Gary Bates
Mike is very knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, and professional. My investment results
have far exceeded what I could have done on my own. Over the last five years, I’ve gained a
valuable education in investing through the Club’s programs and activities.
– Robyn Bonk
I’ve been involved with Mike and the Club for two years. Mike has been completely open
about his history in business. Every deal Mike has presented has been great and has performed
as proposed. Mike’s choice of speakers is also superb; they have been very knowledgeable
and beneficial to me.
– Jerry Perkins)
For five years, Mike has been instrumental in my investment decisions. He has inspired me
to increase my educational and health experiences in a positive way. I now spend somewhere
between 4 to 16 hours a week studying and reading about investments and the
economy… I’m also very happy with my investments through the Club; there’s nothing like
positive cash flow! Thank you, Mike, for your support.
– Chris Yoshimura
Mike Lathigee is passionate and honest, and working to garner the trust of the members in
his vision of where the Club is going. Since joining the Club four months ago, I’m enjoying
the journey and am taking part in the Club’s awesome investment opportunities. Mike is a
capitalist in the best sense of the word. He wants us all to share the ride in building wealth
– Stephen Murphy
My relationship with Mike pre-dates the formation of the Club. What I have found most
valuable is the investment education and the exposure to investments that are not available
to most people. I ‘m getting investment cash flow now and looking forward to being rewarded
when we exit from these investments.
– Bernarr Paroo
I joined the Club at the Money Show in Las Vegas in May 2018. So far, my experience has
been good. I am participating in the Club’s investments in California fitness centers.
– Warren L. Fischer
Having worked with him for a number of years, I’ve come to realize Mike as a true friend
and compatriot. Mike offered me good advice and counsel when I discussed what needed
to be done in a particular investment of mine. We thank him for all he has done for us.
– John and Evee Wallin
I’ve been a Club member for only eight months, but I am very happy with the results so far.
Mike sent me a video of the San Diego fitness centers… and I invested. I have already received
dividend checks from that investment. I plan to invest more funds in the Club’s next
– Joe Kafka
I want to say that after just six months, the educational aspects of the Club have been phenomenal.
You couldn’t ask for better quality content from more knowledgeable individuals.
It’s been very enlightening!
– Bayani Laigo
I have known Mike Lathigee since January 2019. My experience with him has been very positive
and favorable. I look forward to a long and profitable relationship.
– Lawrence Westen
Mike is straight to the point. He’s very knowledgeable on the stock market, the economy,
and business in general.
– Loic Pillon
I am new to the Club, so my interaction with Mike is limited. However, I have attended one
monthly meeting and one EconoSummit. I really appreciate the dedication Mike Lathigee
has in educating members and looking out for their welfare. Being rather new to investing,
it’s also great to be part of an investment community.
– Angela Archer
After being involved in the Club for a year, I am in three deals, with more pending. Everything
has gone as promised. Mike always responds quickly and answers any questions or
concerns. The Club provides great meetings and educational opportunities. I would recommend
it to anyone, including family and friends. In fact, one of my friends recently joined
the Club after doing his due diligence.
– Jason Conner
I have been associated with Mike and the Club for about two years. I am also participating
in several of the private placement projects managed by the Club. Mike and the Management
Team have put in a lot of effort to successfully manage these projects, which are
profitable and growing. Additionally, the monthly meetings organized by Mike have been
– Walter Bacharowski
As a member for five months, so far the investment opportunities have been great. The
EconoSummit was also very interesting. Mike has assembled a great team!
– Dennis Nelson
I joined the Club three months ago. It has been helpful and educational. Mike Lathigee is full
of great ideas and brings in great speakers. He enlists the talents and successes of those in
the Club to benefit us all. The Club is a great opportunity to make money for people like to
me who are not “numbers gifted”.
– Kaye Nelson
I recently joined the Club five months ago hoping to educate myself and be exposed to
investment opportunities. After attending just a few meetings and the EconoSummit, I feel
like I have gained many years of education, as well as become involved in two investments.
My overall experience has far exceeded my expectations. Mike is knowledgeable and engages
the members in an exciting and professional manner. I look forward to the future of
more education, networking with members, and new investments!
– Jeff Feldman
After six years in the Club, I am very satisfied and recommend the experience to others.
Mike is an excellent person who cares about others. I offer him my thanks for making investment
opportunities available to me that the normal person could not find. Due to what
I’ve learned through Mike and the various speakers, I now consider myself a sophisticated
– Jim Akamine
I have been with the Club for a year. During this time, Mike has always arranged top rated
speakers on a wide range of investment-related topics for all of our monthly meetings for
the purpose of giving us a wider education. He also vets the investments offered by the
Club, so we have a higher probability of success. In fact, there has not been an unsuccessful
project since I have been a member.
– Michael Johnson
When I joined the Club, I was looking for monthly income from my new investments. So
too, my expectations for learning more about investing have been met over the last four
years. I like the fact that the Club encourages collaborative new business ventures among
– Murali Pagala
Money grows when it is planted in a fertile field. You need to know about products that
people will want, taking into consideration both cash flow and appreciation. Mike, who initiated
the Club, helps you understand the products and where to find fertile fields to grow
your money. I know because my investments with the Club are returning 26 percent.
– Andy Kuniyuki
I have been a menber for two years. I’ve been learning more about investing; it’s been such
a positive educational experience for me.
– Eva Meza
My limited experience with Mike (for nine months) has been very favorable. I’ve enjoyed my
time at Club meetings and found the EconoSummit to be useful and informative.
– Paul Hammer
I’ve been involved with Mike for two years and participated in one deal through the Club. It
has delivered as promised.
– Dale Lewis
About four months ago, I had the privilege of attending a Meet and Greet with Mike. I liked
what he had to say about investment opportunities with the Club. After attending my first
EconoSummit, I feel more confdent and look forward to learning more about making profitable
– Debra Westen
Having been a member for three years, I find the educational aspect of the Club to be very
fulfilling. Mike has been very responsive in answering my concerns. He brings in world class
presenters to our meetings and seminars that I always look forward to hearing.
– Jim Sandoz
I’ve been involved with Mike for over four years; I met him at the Money Show. I liked the
concepts he expressed, but joined with a lot of cynicism. In the time I have known Mike,
that cynicism has dissolved into an exceeding amount of respect and admiration for him. In
fact, I have entered some investments that I was not familiar with yet based on my regard
– Paul Ford
My investment experience with Mike Lathigee and the Club over the last several years has
met or exceeded my expectations. Recent investments managed by Mike Lathigee have
had a positive return, for the most part exceeding other types of investments (S&P 500,
real estate, other market indices).
The educational mandate of the Club has also been fulfilled in an exemplary manner.
Whereas general news outlets now present useless nonsense and specialty outlets (like
CNBC, MarketWatch, etc) are essentially industry advertisements, in contrast, Mike offers
useful information with the overall message of promoting empowerment. Mike and the Club
are trustworthy and non-self-serving, and focused on benefitting members.
– Richard Pietroski
My wife and I joined the Club in November 2018. Our experience since then has been outstanding
due to Mike’s dedicated guidance and market insights. He has introduced us to
two different investment opportunities in a short time. We have chosen to invest in one of
them and have great expectations that it will do well based on the track record of the principals.
We are well pleased. Thank you, Mike!
– Arnold and Zipora Keller
I’ve been involved with Mike and the Club for three years. Mike is very forthright and trustworthy.
Our investment experience with Mike has exceeded all expectations. We wish we
knew Mike way back because he has tremendous knowledge on investments and opportunities
which we truly enjoy. Being an active member of the Club enables us to enlighten
our lives by learning more about investments, community, education, and health. Thank you
very much, Mike. You are our hero.
– Nelson M. Yrizarry, Jr.
As a fairly new member, I’ve been favorably impressed with the educational experience
alone. We’ve invested a small amount and are anticipating a far greater return than from a
traditional brokerage firm. In developing our business of developing businesses, we’re constantly
reinventing and improving our strategies based in large part on ideas gleaned from
Mike and the phenomenal speakers he brings to the Club.
I especially love speakers Mark Skousen and Josh Effron for their respective styles, as well
as their content. With bigger events like the EconoSummit, we find inspiration to rededicate
ourselves to making more money so we can take care of our health, continue our lifelong
education, and give back to our community and our nation for the betterment of our world.
– Linda West
I have been a member for a couple of months. I have been very impressed with how Mike
runs the meetings. His passion and energy is tremendous! I have participated in one investment
so far and greatly appreciate the education. I look forward to introducing Mike to
some of my friends. This weekend at EconoSummit 2019 was a great experience and I can’t
wait to bring my wife to a meeting. May God bless you and your family, Mike.
– Carl Johnson
Since joining the Club, I have very much enjoyed getting to know Mike Lathigee. I trust him
after only knowing him for a few months. It is too early for me to comment on my investment
returns through the Club… I consider Mike a great leader.
– Phil Gardner
Mike is passionate about what he does and is taking care of the members of the Club. He
adheres to the four principles the Club stands on, which are education, making money,
health, and community. He makes sure that of there are problems they are rectified. So far,
he has met or exceeded my expectations. The Club meetings and the speakers are always
informative and beneficial, and the investments offered are carefully vetted.
– Lesa Deadman
I’ve been involved with Mike Lathigee and the Club for a year and a half. The education that
is provided on many levels has been worth way more than the membership price.
