    The Elevation Group's Mike Dillard Featured in Aspire Magazine


    Aspire Magazine, the web based publication for entrepreneurs that has interviewed names like Richard Branson, Guy Kawasaki and a lot more, has recently highlighted The Elevation Group's Founder Mike Dillard in the January 2013 edition.


    In line with Aspire's website: "We like to ‘make waves’ at ASPIRE HQ, which is why we decided to feature ‘The Oracle of Doom, Beacon of Hope’ on the cover. Don’t know who Mike Dillard is? Only one way to find out…"  Mike Dillard is convinced that the U.S. is coming up on the most significant wealth transfer in human history. The 'Land of the Free, and the Home of The Brave', has become the ‘Land of the Slaves and Home of The Victims’.


    But with the right insight, everyone can place their selves on the right side of the transfer.  This belief was the fuel that fired the creation of The Elevation Group (EVG).  The Elevation Group started in late 2010 as an online diary in which members pay to access interviews with financial experts and access to EVG founders’ virtual rolodex. It strives to provide alternative investment strategies that go against the grain of commonly held personal financial advice.  The Elevation Group recognizes that the classic model of, 'get a job, invest in your IRA/410K and retire at 65' no longer works in the post-2008 world.


    “We actually go and interview the best investors that are also educators… guys like Tom Wheelwright, author of the book, Tax Free Wealth," says Mr. Dillard. "Tom is our CPA. We interview him to teach our members about concepts like tax deferment and tax avoidance.”  Mr. Dillard is quick to point out that neither he nor his business partner Robert Hirsch are financial advisers. Rather, they are interviewers who chronicle where “the ultra rich” are investing their money.
