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.

The Verdict

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.

  1. Just got back from MMI learned some things! but slime sales tactics left and right! using fear and lack and emotional sifts to sell! if you go leave your money behind! don’t buy nothing till maybe your second one! then it won’t be an emotional choice! where they got you saying, “omg! I have been playing small so now gotta go big and sign up for some thing now! its the best deal ever!!! never been this cheap! only available at this break/weekend!”~ these are old school selling techniques~ and they hooked many. You can learn somethings and meet some cool people/participants.
    But watch the whole game, as one big sales pitch~ and for me I was reminded how I don’t want to sell~
    slimy fear based not straight from the hip tactics. I came home went for a run to get the slime off and now gotta shower!
    what got me at the end is how the speaker even used his daughters death (and whitney Houston’s death, cause we were just in a circle singing one of her songs) as an emotional pull towards making a choice now cause you don’t know how long you are going to be here. so either you go sign up or go out that door~ like the door was settling for mediocracy and not going big. but out the door was sunshine and i can play big even without them. they may have some great things in their programs~ but if they teach you to sell like that~ not sure where integrity lives in the organization or its just all smoke and mirrors. The real estate guy they had come add on a package was a possibly not honest~ nor is their tactics probably legal~not good partnering. but maybe great info showing that they may be as out of integrity at their core to.
    so to some degree i could say stay away~ yet i learned some good stuff to do and a lot of ways i don’t want to be! the jar method is great~which you can find info on all over the place, online i imagine, from other peeps not related to MMI. Also looking into my relationship with money and wealth ( the book “the Energy of Money’ is very good for that with no upscales or slime involved.)
    I really met some cool people though and had some fun learning, and then sales pitches soured or dulled the moment.

    I believe if something is so great it sells itself~ we would see the people hear their stories and learn some things and then they could say if you want to go deeper you can sign up for the more intensive trainings. most people do this~ yet this feels more like they are selling you the whole system that they are modeling as a success system~ but i think it might bring about difficulty sleeping, keeping your conscious, or living in integrity in ones life if you are emotionally and fear selling products~ you ultimately have to go through lots more people and have way less continued clients.
    but their programs are $12,000+ for all or $1,995 so they getting good on one sell! also i heard from people that have been to those that they continue to up sale with all those ones you pay for!!!!
    During the three day I was reminded during sale pitches of TV evangelist and carneys!LOL

    • Yes, they definitely do devote a lot of time and energy to trying to upsell people from free seminar attendee to paying customer. But as long as you go into it with that understanding, there’s value to be had for the average person.

      As a new dad, the tradeoff I’m always considering is if something is worth my time. Now that my time is much more scarce, and as a result, more valuable, it would be a much harder choice to attend.
