Is an Investools Seminar right for you?

By: Jimmy Slagle
You’ve seen the infomercial about Investools. You've read about Investools. You've heard the Investools hype. You're probably excited about attending an Investools workshop.

However, there's just one problem: Is Investools right for you or is Investools just another scam?

Investools may never live up to its promise for you!

Attending an Investools workshop might literally be an issue of trading success or failure!

I'm about to reveal information about one of the MAJOR problems with Investools - if you're not prepared for some serious information, then you should stop reading this article now.

I don't want you to waste your time or money on something that may not be right for you. Hence the reason I wrote this article - to make sure that you don't lose money paying for something that MAY NOT EVER do what it was intended to do.

Investools May NEVER…well, quite frankly, "give you the tools to invest".

The first thing you need to know is that Investools, in its purest form, is an educational company.

Some would suggest that the term "education" is a misnomer and that a more appropriate description of Investools would be that of a Seminar Company.

As an educational (seminar) company their primary purpose is to provide programs which are specifically designed to educate (sell) their customers.

To achieve this goal of education (sales), Investools has chosen the combination Preview Seminar/multi-day "fulfillment" workshop. Both of these formats can stand alone in terms of purpose yet, when the two are combined, make for a powerfully hypnotic experience.

The purpose of this article is to attempt to accurately describe the Investools preview seminar and the Investools multi-day workshop, so that you, the participant, will be fully prepared for what is ultimately coming.

The number-one priority of these types of Investools seminars is SALES REVENUE. Therefore, this is what you should expect. Will there be some training? Yes; however, it will be limited and generic at best.

The Investools preview seminar is the one that most people attend to "test the waters" and find out more about the company and the training provided.

These seminars are usually held in a hotel ballroom and are scheduled in the mornings, afternoons and evenings, generally lasting between two to three hours each. The sole purpose of this seminar is to give you a taste of what the company has to offer. They will probably provide a workbook of terms, general market information, and maybe an audio CD or DVD that you can take home and watch at your leisure.

Most preview seminar cost nothing to attend, although it will have a stated value of $149.00 to $299.00. Many of the larger, more established companies such as Investools usually convene in a hotel ballroom and will view a prepared presentation on a screen in a "power point" format, although in my ten years speaking around the country, I’ve seen companies doing presentations from an overhead projector or even just a white pad of paper.
