Hi, my name is Mike Dillard and I'm an entrepreneur in Austin Texas.
I started my first company in 2005, called Magnetic Sponsoring in order to bring direct response marketing strategies to the $177 Billion network marketing industry.
After growing "MS" into an 8-figure company, I retired from the direct-selling industry in 2010 in order to pursue my passion for financial education and investing.
As I watched the financial collapse of 2008, it became very clear to me the "rules" of money had changed, and that all of us needed a better way to create financial security and opportunity in our lives.
In 2010 I founded The Elevation Group, with one simple purpose... To empower the people of the world with the investing strategies used by the ultra-rich to prosper during these times of incredible global change.
The Elevation Group is my diary. I document and share the strategies, people, and opportunities I come across as my global journey into the world of investing in a post-2008 economy, unfolds...
While the concept is simple, the approach and results have been revolutionary.
Implementing what I've learned and documented, I've averaged a 77% return per year since 2008 without buying a single stock, and countless EVG Members have taken back control of their financial destiny.
In less than two years, The Elevation Group has grown to more than 40,000 Members in more than 60 countries, and is one of the fastest growing companies in the US.
EVG was named the, "Make-A-Wish Outstanding Corporation" for 2012, and we are proud supporters of the "Wounded Warrior Project".
I spend my free time with my incredible son Chase, racing in the SCORE and HDRA off-road series, fishing on Lake Austin, creating a self-sustainable ranch property in the Texas hill-country, and enjoying the best that life has to offer in the form of food, friends, and travel.
