Finance: Continuing education



PHUKET: I have always been a big fan of education. It was instilled in me by my father from the time I was young and saw all of my friends leaving education early for the allure of a quick paycheck.

Obviously, the short-sightedness of that only becomes apparent in hindsight, but I don’t think it is ever too late to continue your education.

I also think you only really become ‘old’ when you stop learning, so I try to read as many books and attend as many seminars as I can. This past weekend I participated in the Landmark Forum and I highly recommend everyone to attend this.

It is hard to explain exactly what the Forum is without actually going through the three days yourself. What it promises is a whole new world of possibilities and the ability to make a quantum breakthrough in any of the most important areas of your life.

These can be financial or business related, but also in terms of relationships with our families and society, our own health, or basically in any other area in which we feel there’s room for improvement. The course promises the possibility of a complete transformation and it did not disappoint.

While the course allows each participant to focus on any area of his or her life where they would like to make a breakthrough, one area in which many do is financial.

The Forum was first recommended to me by a childhood friend with whom I had done some pretty extensive and rough traveling around the US. As someone who had dropped out of high school in ninth grade, not many would have placed him on their ‘most likely to succeed’ list.

However, he now earns about half a million dollars a year running his own business. He not only credits Landmark education as essential to his business success, but also to his happy marriage and relationship with his children.

He is just one of many who have gone on to accomplish great things after attending the Forum. I briefly mentioned it to one of my retired clients who had been very successful as a venture capitalist, and sure enough he had done the forum as well.

It is an essential piece of the education process for the side business I do with my wife, and I think it is not limited to people searching for better financial results.

If you would like to have new possibilities for your relationships with friends and loved ones, a life free of fear and the kind of life you have always dreamed of, then the Landmark Forum is a must.

Of all the education I have undertaken, the Forum probably represents the best value.

You can learn more about the Forum by visiting It is conducted in English with a Thai translation, so almost anybody here in Thailand can attend.

I earn no commission of any form by mentioning this, by the way, but hopefully you will make the world a better place once you realize that you are capable of achieving anything you decide to create. Hurry up because the course is popular and usually fills up at least a month or two in advance.
