A Pivotal Week
Amanda Heckman|September 17, 2022
This was a pivotal week in Manward’s history. Some huge things happened… all of them designed to enrich our readers’ lives (in more ways than one).
For a day and a half, attendees met in Polyface’s new, outdoor “Lunatic Learning Center,” sheltered from a brilliant sun and cooled by a steady breeze.
Joel, Andy and our special guests shared their thoughts and wisdom on free markets… a free society… and where things are headed.
And in the brief recap here… you’ll see a golden thread woven throughout.
As Andy told you on Monday, he opened the meeting by revisiting his unique “Gone to Hell” scale. While things don’t look so hot for America in many ways, there are pockets of hope, places where folks aren’t accepting the status quo… and our retreat was one way of fighting back.
We heard the bullish case for gold. Our good friend and precious metals expert Rich Checkan laid to rest any skepticism related to gold’s “underperformance” this year… As Rich said, gold is doing EXACTLY what it should be doing. As a way to protect your purchasing power in the event of a financial disaster, it should be part of any smart investor’s portfolio.
Renowned alternative medicine expert Sina McCullough shared her incredible personal story. Doctors abandoned her… and she was close to death before she took matters into her own hands. Her story illustrates much of what’s broken in our medical system… and she shared ways you can fight against that system and for your health.
We spent the middle of the day on a stunning tour of Polyface. We saw up close just how deeply thoughtful and passionate Joel is about the work he’s doing to transform the farming industry. He’s fighting to make the world a better place for ALL of its living residents.
As he said… “How can we expect a society to treat its people well when we don’t treat our animals well?”
We closed Day One with a visit from America’s 10th president, John Tyler. Historian, author and performer Richard Cheatham charmed the audience with a “firsthand” look at this “forgotten” president, who spent all of his political capital in office defending the Constitution rather than fighting for reelection.
Day Two proved to be just as enriching as Day One. Andy examined the energy sector and gave out a slew of tickers to profit from its transformation. While new green energy laws are decades ahead of reality, there are plenty of ways to profit from the gaps between where we are now and where we’re headed.
Speaking of where we’re headed… Joel took to the stage to share his thoughts on the future of liberty. He’s encouraged that more and more folks are opting out of our current systems and going their own way. He listed nearly a dozen ways we can all lead richer lives… including by being part of a tribe like Manward.
We closed the retreat with a Q&A panel featuring all our speakers. From actions to take to thoughts on taxes… and from energy innovations to historical perspectives, we covered it all.
It was clear the setting… the speakers… and the diversity of topics we covered… were exactly what folks were looking for…
Extremely powerful! In my life, I have been to many events, and nothing has ever even come close to the energy I witnessed and enjoyed.
Excellent!!! A lot of information all packed into a memorable setting.
Each [presenter] spoke from their bent, and because of that, it was a rich, full and passionate event.
So well-run! It felt a lot like sitting down with friends who cared about your walk in life! It truly was exceptional on all fronts!
Suffice it to say… we’re already looking forward to the next one… and we hope to see you there.
But no sooner had we unpacked than we were welcoming a familiar face stateside.
Boy, was it a treat to have him here. His knowledge, ideas and passion overflow… and we’re excited to be able to share some of his latest top-notch research with you in the coming weeks. (Stay tuned.)
But more than that, we’re thrilled to deepen our partnership with him and to bring you even more of his trading ideas and unique platforms.
From more gatherings to bring together and build the Manward tribe of liberty-minded folks… to unique new offerings to enrich your portfolio… 2023 is shaping up to be a very exciting year, indeed.
We’re so glad you’re part of this movement.
Note: We also hosted an exclusive dinner for our Manward Executive members at our retreat. It was an intimate gathering that allowed fellow Executives to get to know each other and spend time with Andy. Manward Executive is our highest level of membership… and includes access to Manward Novus, a trading service for the fast-growing security token sector. You won’t find this research anywhere else… so get more details here.
