The Millionaire Mind Intensive, or MMI, is a free financial freedom seminar from T. Harv Eker, author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth (review).
A friend and I attended one in 2012 at the urging of a friend, and I found it an interesting and rewarding experience. Interesting enough to be worth writing up here on Enwealthen.
The First Rule of Millionaire Mind Intensive…
Part of the program is the Vegas (or Fight Club) agreement – whatever happens in MMI, stays in MMI.
I take my word seriously, and as such, will not be sharing details of the program here. While that limits how interesting this review will be, I will say the following.
The Millionaire Mind Intensive seminar is some of what you would expect in a free financial seminar
- Many, many pitches by the MMI staff or their various business partners on why you need to run over and sign up for their service
- 3 very long days to wear down your resistance and let the material sink in
- Lots of material from Eker’s book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
What Do You Do With All This Money?
Much of the seminar covered T. Harv Eker’s system for budgeting and allocation of your income for long term success. You can read more details on that system in his book, Secrets of The Millionaire Mind, or my review of his book here on Enwealthen.
I like his money management system. It’s simple, and effective. However, the one complaint I have about it is that it can be time consuming to implement.
The tracking of income and expenses requires a discipline and book-keeping that I suspect is lacking in the average person. Personally, I’ve implemented it using a separate savings account for each category, and Quicken for tracking them all.
Thankfully, you can automate the distributions, but allocating expenses against the various accounts can be painful. Time will tell if I can keep this up or not.
As I Count Backwards From 10… 9… 8…
Another part of the seminar was completely unexpected. Lots of NLP work, but not just to sell their products, but to help you discover and overcome your limiting beliefs on money and being rich. If you know about NLP, it is immediately obvious. If you don’t, you likely spend much of your time wondering why they are doing what they are doing.
I think this is the most helpful part of the seminar. It builds a lot of energy and excitement in the crowd, and helps you absorb the material in ways of which you’re not consciously aware.
My recommendation? Personally, I would not pay to attend one of these seminars given the strong sales pressure throughout the event. However, as long as you can separate the sales from the material, I recommend attending whenever one comes to your area.
I plan to attend one again in the future, simply because change takes repetition, and this seminar will help you change for the better. If you enjoyed this article and want to receive more useful financial information like my future T. Harv Eker reviews, subscribe to the Enwealthen mailing list.
