Here’s the 60-second Invitation video of what I’m trying to accomplish within the group:
Here’s a longer video if you want to learn more, and would also like to hear a bit more about my story:
Introduction to my private investing mentorship club:
Elite Investors Guild is a private, members-only, investor’s club. We have everyone from people who know nothing about assets (i.e. stock market, bond market, cryptocurrency, real estate, etc), to veterans who’ve already turned quite a bit of profit over the years. Members will be personally mentored by me and will have access to a community of like-minded individuals looking to generate a sustainable source of income and create wealth through investing, via a private Facebook Group.
Invite from Timothy S. Kim:
Hey, it’s Tim
How’re you liking this year so far? Already 2020, can you believe it? This means people who were born in the year 2000 are mature adults. Many will soon graduate college and enter the workforce.
What about you? What is your action plan for this year and the coming years?
Do you find your job meaningful? Do you feel fulfilled, happy, and energized going to work?
You may like your job, but maybe you’re up to your eyeballs in debt and you see no end in sight (I think debt is the most underrated stressor). Especially here in the states where the typical person is fed the lie by society that a degree or license will solve your problem. Even if you incur a mountain of debt that will be a heavy yoke around your neck for half or all of your most important years on this earth.
No one talks about this, why?
I know so many people around me that are in this horrible situation. They thought they would be set once they graduated medical school, but no, they basically borrowed money to buy a job that they would hate and now they can’t escape for the rest of their existence. This is a tragedy.
You may even love your job; take my wife for example.
She works as a nurse practitioner even though she doesn’t have to. So she’s not doing it for the money, even though she makes well into six figures (HCOL area here in California! And I’ve paid her full tuition, even for her MSN so she didn’t have to borrow any money).
She does what she does because she sees it as her calling. She does it because it’s her God-given ministry here on earth. But is it easy? Absolutely not.
The long hours, dealing with insurance companies and other departments and facilities, dealing with patients and their family, dealing with their boss and their bosses, worrying and stressing about getting sued for malpractice, and the list goes on and on.
Many of my friends, and extended family, are in the medical field. I’ve never seen a more stressed and unhappy group of people in my life.
The same goes for fields that were once thought to be safe, such as law and accounting. These two will be one of the top 10 professions that will be automated and done by AI in the next 10-15 years.
On this point, the WEF (World Economic Forum) has done a study that actually shows that 52% of jobs will be automated by 2025 (that’s in 5 years).
I say these things because there are really no professions on this earth that is fail-proof. The problem is that you’ll only realize this once it’s too late. Once you’ve put so many of your most important years of youth toiling and working hard, only to find yourself waking up every day not wanting to go to work with a never-ending list of bills and family financial problems to deal with.
So I’ll ask you again: what is your action plan for 2020? For 2021? And going forward?
You’ve probably heard this quote attributed to Albert Einstein regarding the definition of insanity:
“[the definition of insanity is] doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
Now whether you believe Einstein really said that is not the point.
There is still truth in the saying right? A rational person can’t disagree with that statement.
If you’re doing the same thing day in and day out, and yet you hope your life gets better, it wouldn’t make much sense right?
Because if you want something you’ve never had, you need to try something you’ve never done.
Many roads lead to Rome, but passive income is the only road to lasting financial security because it’s the only way one can have some income coming in even as you sleep. So no human capital restrictions (i.e. your own time). Without these flows of passive cash, you have no choice but to work to your grave, for the entirety of your life.
You need to learn about investing.
Do you seriously think millionaires and billionaires are all working WAY harder than you?
Ponder this for a moment.
If that is what you think, then you don’t understand how the world works.
These same people, these millionaires and billionaires, have exactly the same 24 hours in a day as you do. They know how to get their money to work for them. That’s the main difference. So how is it that they lead very different lives than you? How come?
The short answer is the following:
Money is their servant. They are not a servant to money.
You need to make your money work for you; not the other way around.
If you want my help with doing so, I’ll be hosting LIVE Mentorship Calls for a small private group (bi-weekly to monthly depending on schedule, very non-rigid format with ability to watch and re-watch if you miss the video conference call).
During these Mentorship Calls, I’ll answer investing questions and share with you what I know about investing, and what I’ve personally been able to do with my investment portfolios; and lastly current market conditions and what my personal plans are going forward.
Here’s your chance to try something new and different; and not just “hoping” that things will turn around in some unknown time in the future.
Take ownership! See you in the group! If not, best of wishes to you but promise me you’ll at the very least try something new this week or that one thing you’ve always wanted to try but never got around to (don’t push it off this time because it’s 2020)!!

Why I’m making this program a pay-what-you-want group with a free option:
You might be asking yourself, a free option? Really? If you have a free option, won’t many people just want it for free rather than pay? Why are you making this a pay-what-you-want program? Doesn’t sound too smart as an entrepreneur and business person.
First let’s get this straight because I want to be very clear so that there’s no misunderstanding.
I think it goes without saying because it’s fairly evident that God has blessed me with a lot of money. I say this because I want you to know that I don’t do this because I have to. I do this because I want to.
Now having said that to avoid any confusion, I believe that most people are honest – most people have integrity and will be honest when they sign up. So because of this, I believe people will pay what they’re able to rather than taking advantage of this program. So we’ll see how this goes, and test the waters to see if I’m right about thinking this way (update on 1/15/20: after multiple rounds of early test groups, my hypothesis is correct and backed by research I’ve been recently looking over. People do not take it as seriously when something is freely given to them because they don’t have to put any skin in the game; it’s a sad fact).
I’ve spoken with people living in places like Namibia, Nigeria, and many Asian countries that make something like $100 a month or even less than that. So they’re literally barely surviving. I want to give access to people like this, who truly can’t afford even the lowest $7 a month. So the free option is intended for these individuals, so that they can rise up from their circumstances (email me at my personal email email@example.com if this is you, I will approve on a per case basis – free slots are currently full; email me to be added to the waitlist – update on 1/15/2020).
Also, to compare apples to apples: many similar online courses range on average between $500 – $2,000. I’m charging a “what you’re able to pay.” I’d say that’s fair.
I’ve thought a lot about this and the typical person will have a hard time affording all that money upfront (it’s just way too much money for most people).
This is why I made it a “pay what you can” structure. You only pay what you’re able. It’s also why I’ve made it a monthly plan, rather than a big lump payment upfront; so that it’s not as big of a burden on you.
What you can expect from joining my group
If you’re scrolling down to only read this last section, and not my invitation letter above (which is the most important section on this page), then you’re doing yourself a profound disservice because I explain the essence of what you can expect and exactly the reasoning behind why I’m embarking on this.
Having said that, I don’t know why but people are always looking for some sort of 100% guarantee to success; but in good conscience, I cannot promise this to anyone because I’m a mere man. Investments are inherently risky (there’s no way around this); so because of this, it is impossible to guarantee anything.
There’s also a major difference between investing and speculation. I will cover the two differences in the group, but know that I’m more conservative. Because the goal isn’t just to be rich. It’s to not become poor.
Also, it is important to understand that I will not personally invest your money. I can only teach you investing principles and also share what I’ve done in the past and am continuing to do.
When all is said and done, it won’t hurt to try. If nothing else, you’ve tried something new and different in the year 2020. I’m very confident though that you’ll at the very least learn how wealth creation works. If you’ve never really known how the stock market works, or crypto or any of the other asset classes, this is a great time to start. 2020 will be the year where we make some changes. Click one of the options below to get started (“pay what you can” unlike other online programs). See you in the group!
