I am writing in earnest about something so important that I need you to stop whatever you are doing and read this blog now. I know you have heard phrases like this bantered about by other people. However, you never hear something like this from me, unless I’m dead serious and there is something that demands your attention now. Yes, we’re all getting ready for summer vacation and holidays, wrapping up the school year and looking forward to some freedom and fun. However, a little attention now will make the summer go far more smoothly, and help our vacations to truly be the R&R we desire, deserve and need.
Are we already in a recession? What can you do to protect yourself now before things get worse? Remember that I called the Great Recession in December of 2007, and offered solutions that earned gains, when most of Main Street lost more than half of their wealth. An email similar to this one was sent on Dec. 23, 2007. That was before the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by half.
I was the least popular person at Christmas parties in 1999, when I warned of the Dot Com Crash, while everyone was bragging about their gains (only to lose up to 78% in the Dot Com Recession).
I want to stress that avoiding these kinds of losses is easy-as-a-pie-chart. The devastating losses that so many people suffered during the Dot Com and the Great Recessions are even more heartbreaking because they are preventable with a few quite simple strategies. Having time-proven 21st century solutions was what earned me the honor of having Nobel-Prize winning economist Gary S. Becker, one of the most esteemed economists of all time, write the Preface to my book Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is. As Becker wrote, “Many people, including educated men and women, often get into trouble when they neglect to follow simple and fundamental rules of the type provided [by Natalie]. This is why I recommend them with enthusiasm.”
This system is specifically designed to be easy, efficacious and time-efficient, so that you can set it up, rebalance it once or twice a year, and protect and grow your wealth without stress and drama.
Take Our Wealth Challenge
Add up everything you have in your retirement accounts, savings, brokerage accounts, etc. Once you get the total, divide it by half. Then ask yourself, "Am I really willing to risk losing half of my wealth? Should I have blind faith that someone else is protecting my future? Or is now the time to be the boss of my money and know exactly what I own and why, and what a time-proven plan looks like?" (That plan is easy-as-a-pie-chart.)
Even if you’re feeling equity rich or that you have a "conservative" allocation in your portfolio, you might be at risk of devastating losses with the added horror of being invested in illiquid assets where you cannot access your money.
If you have already lost money (most people have) or do not have a clue what holdings you have in your retirement plan, and you have even $10,000 invested, you need to move heaven and earth to be at my retreat this June 10-12, 2022. Here is why. At the retreat, we will look at the danger zones that you need to avoid NOW before inflation (and 5 other risk factors) start to bring down the stock market. You will carefully restructure your nest egg, so that you are protected against a downturn and are positioned to earn gains in the companies of tomorrow. You will learn sound, higher performing, less risky alternative investments that could bring you thousands of dollars annually right now that are lying right under your nose. You’ll gain an understanding of the best hedging investments and how to be on the right side of the volatility in crypto, gold and other safe havens.
Your current investment strategy has very likely already lost a chunk of dough. This could be a hellish summer with more losses on the horizon. We will know whether or not we’re already in a recession on July 28, 2022. (The smart money will know as early as mid-June.) This will be the subject of my June webinar on June 2, 2022. You can listen to it on my Spotify podcast, or watch it free of charge on my YouTube.com/NataliePace channel.
So, if you delay taking action now, whether it is attending the June 10-12, 2022 Retreat or getting an unbiased 2nd opinion personally and confidentially, you are putting your wealth and future at risk. If you wait for the headlines that the economy is in a recession, it’s always too late to protect yourself. Stocks drop before the recession is announced. A better strategy could protect your wealth from losses, and position you for gains, while offering the peace of mind that ensures your vacation will be a golden memory for you and your loved ones. (If you’re constantly checking the news and worrying about your losses, quite the opposite experience is going to occur.) And again, learning and implementing a time-proven, 21st Century wealth plan is not expensive, difficult to learn, or time-consuming. That’s the beauty of something that is well-designed.
We have put together a 3-day wisdom immersion experience that is extremely unique, powerful and results-certain. On Day 1, we are going to protect our nest egg. On Day 2, we’ll discover the hottest areas of opportunity and why some of the most well-known brands are at the greatest risk for losses. Day 3 is all about, “What’s safe in a Debt World?” If you don’t know the answer to that question, your conservative plan could (again) be at risk of devastating losses with the added horror of being invested in illiquid assets where you cannot access your money. The safe side of your wealth plan is not supposed to lose money. Meanwhile, many people are being sold into long-term, high-risk, low-yielding investments as a “protection” against inflation, putting their principal and liquidity at risk, while also losing buying power. The investor loses in that scenario, while the broker-salesman makes a high commission.
By the time you leave our retreat on the third day, you will no longer be the same person. (Please take a moment to read the testimonials below). Even if you have been following my blogs and books to a T, the immersion process of getting course-corrected by me personally will teach you how to think how I think, so that you can have the same level of success in your life. I cannot promise that you will make a billion dollars, but I can tell you that if you invest with the foundation and strategies we teach you, it is much easier to amass wealth and to live a richer life. Financial freedom over the coming years will only be possible by adopting a plan that preserves your wealth today, and allows you to earn gains, while having an easy-to-follow plan that is capable of auto-navigating a tough and treacherous economic environment. Without that plan, the coming years could be simply heartbreaking. I’d far rather assist you in protecting yourself now than in rebuilding your life after the crash. (Most people wait until they hit rock-bottom to fix things. Please be smarter than that.)
The three days of June 10-12, 2022 will absolutely be the most enriching, the most important and the most valuable three days of your investment life. Speaking of which, we are not charging the $5,000 or $10,000 that most investment training programs ask. We are not even charging half of that. We are creating a value-priced, priceless retreat where I can work deeply, intimately and personally with our most motivated, serious and ambitious retreat attendees.

There is no downside to you attending our June retreat, outside of the modest registration fee. Learning the life math and time-proven 21st Century systems that we all should have received in high school will transform your relationship with money and investing forever. “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,” Benjamin Franklin.
“I did not know a THING about investing but Natalie Pace made it so easy that I was literally jumping for joy after the first day. I learned so much so fast. Before Natalie’s retreat, I never imagined investing could be so safe, easy and profitable, and that I would love it so much.” CC in Canada
“We asked Natalie Pace for a second opinion on our investment portfolio. She researched and reviewed each stock and fund. She then explained to us in plain English how we were positioned in the market, and how high our risk exposure was. Her knowledge was so profound that we decided to take her retreat. My husband was still quite skeptical, but 20 minutes into the retreat he turned to me and said "Thank you." Stocks and investing are no longer rocket science. We are finally able to take control of our money. We give thanks just about every day that we met Natalie. I feel like I live on a different planet. I am forever grateful.” AC & AM
“Through Natalie Pace and her strategies, I have built up a nest egg from zero (having gone through bankruptcy 9 years ago due to over leveraging myself in real estate at too high of prices just before the crash) to 44K in less than 2 years through investments. I appreciate her discussion about the path to wisdom. The first retreat was emotional and overwhelming. Now it makes so much more sense that I have even started learning about and doing my first options trades!” SS
“Ten minutes into the first day I was already much smarter about investing than I ever thought I would be in my life and I knew I was in exactly the right place at this retreat. I am amazed at how EASY and FUN it is to make my money work for me and those I love. I think this kind of information should be compulsory in schools. I wish I'd learned it earlier in life. I would recommend this retreat for everyone.” CM
“I am saving $20,000 annually on health insurance with Natalie’s Health Savings Account tips.” RM
“I reduced my electric bill from $800/month to less than $30/month, using Natalie’s Stop Making the Billionaire Corporations Rich at Your Own Expense Plan.” MR
No matter how dark and scary the forest gets, if you follow the light, you will reach the promised land.
