After 7 years of working overtime as an investment banker, Jamie Varnhagen stumbled into the world of Self-Directed Retirement Accounts. Through her personal investment experience and successes, she was able to help her parents with a much-needed boost in the performance of their retirement portfolio. This branched into an overwhelming awareness of a need for education and empowerment for mainstream investors who are struggling to save for retirement through traditional financial planning methods. Soon thereafter, she realized that her investment income, both taxable and non-taxable, was substantial enough that she could retire from her career track and start Self-Directed Club.
Their mission is to help deserving people live richer, fuller lives. And they focus on the use of retirement dollars, self-directed retirement accounts, and alternative investment strategies.
Ron LeGrand is from humble beginnings, a former auto-mechanic who couldn’t even make ends meet working overtime. He’ll never forget telling his wife again and again that they couldn’t afford a new washing machine when their old one broke. Today, they live in a 7,000 square foot home in Florida. He’s bought and sold over 3,000 homes and commercial properties all over America (using the same System he’ll give you) and he has thousands of people he’s helped and is currently helping to achieve their grandest goals. Here’s his story…
Ron’s been buying “quick-turning” for cash and keeping as investment houses as an independent investor and entrepreneur for 35 years. You can’t do that by random. You can’t do it “hit or miss” or you’d be broke, and he’s not; he’s quite rich. That’s because he has an actual SYSTEM for this that anybody can follow. And just about all business success and wealth is based on SYSTEMS. McDonald’s has a System for efficiently serving food. Southwest Airlines has a System for efficiently transporting passengers. “Old” wealth, like the Ford family’s, came from the Systems of assembly-line manufacturing and franchised dealerships. “New” wealth, like the Walton’s family’s, came from the Wal-Mart Systems for regional warehousing and distribution and controlling costs. In your job or business, you undoubtedly have Systems.
Ron has a System for efficiently locating, accurately analyzing, and intelligently purchasing certain very specific types of real estate, in some cases to quickly resell one of several ways for immediate cash profits; in other cases, to hold onto, without landlord headaches. His System can be your System – without the years of trial-and-error and expense that went into perfecting it…
In 1982, he was married, working as a car mechanic, with no money in the bank, an embarrassingly small paycheck, constantly telling his wife and kids “no” and feeling terrible about it. He was 35 years old, bankrupt, married for 17 years, with 4 kids, and clueless about what he wanted to do with my life – although he was pretty sure I didn’t want to fix cars in the hot Florida sun. Sometimes, even a good business providing a good income still feels like a bad job.
Ron talks with a lot of doctors, lawyers, contractors, restaurant owners, insurance sales agents, mortgage brokers who were doing just fine purely in income when they first meet him, but they still feel miserable about how hard they’re working or how they’re tied down and trapped by their businesses. Ron liberates them now, like he was once liberated. He saw an ad that said, “Come learn how to buy real estate with no money and no credit.”
He didn’t believe it, but went anyway. Within the next 3 weeks, Ron made $3,000 on a small real estate deal and was no longer an auto mechanic. In a few short years, Ron purchased over 400 houses but had as many headaches as he did dollars. That’s when he completely redesigned his approach to real estate and went about being an ‘investor’ differently. He went about being a ‘quick-turn entrepreneur’ for immediate cash profits, too.
People started coming to Ron for advice, word got around, and almost of its own making, Ron wound up in the business of showing others how to do what he does – and what he does IS unique. It is a unique combination of marketing to attract deals, immediate cash profits, avoiding ordinary landlord problems, and rapidly accumulating wealth, a goodly portion of it tax-free. If that sounds complicated, it isn’t. Once you know the steps, it’ll be just as easy and natural for you to do as what you do now to make a living. By the way, you’ll be joining a 50 -Billion Dollar Industry that’s more than 200 years old. It’s not that we’re doing anything totally new here. Instead, Ron’s built a System for you on a rock-solid foundation.
So, today, Ron lives with his wife of 52 years, Beverly in a beautiful home and 10 acres in Jacksonville, Florida. He indulges in his favorite hobby, fishing, with three or four trips a year, including his favorite, into the Alaskan wilderness. He does a lot of speaking – in fact, he addresses audiences of 200 to 20,000. He frequently finds himself on programs with people like Dr. Phil, former U.S. Presidents, famous authors like Robert Kiosayki, ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad,’ even Donald Trump. He usually travels in his private jet – no “take off your belt and shoes” airport security lines for Ron! He doesn’t tell you ANY of that to brag, but to make two very important points for your benefit: one, if a dumb car mechanic can do this, why shouldn’t you? You definitely have more education and resources than Ron did when he started. And you have all his experience, buying some 400 houses “dumb ways,” 2,600+ the smart way; buying over $300-million of commercial property; 35 years; all compressed and condensed into a step-by-step System that Ron never had. Two, although he’s paid every week to speak, conduct seminars, and author books and courses, that’s NOT where the majority of Ron’s wealth came from or comes from. He does what he tells you to do. He still buys and “quick-turns” three to six ‘ordinary’ houses almost every month just to keep his hand in, with an average profit of over $60,000 a month.

Born with an entrepreneurial spirit Damion started his first business at age 11, has started 30 since and is the published author of 5 books.
He’s the founder of Yokido, his own martial art and has 3 other black belts.
As a thought leader and bold executioner, his first rental house was purchased Dec 31, 1999, using his VISA and some big cojones. That was the beginning of a business that grew into 150 houses in 7 states over the next 5 years that ended with a $20,000,000 meltdown and complete Reinvention in 2008. This was the basis for his book Reinvented Life.
Damion’s personal philosophy centers on Self Responsibility and a believe that the only path to freedom is through personal ownership and 10X thinking.
His philosophy combined with a love of financial markets and money psychology led the launch of his Austin based FinTech Total Control Financial this year, a company on a mission to disrupt Wall Street and empower main street with a patented technology and artificial intelligence based tool to reinvent old archaic ideas around retirement and financial freedom and empower people with control of their financial lives.
His powerful patented tool is called the eQRP ®, a retirement vehicle 10 times more powerful than an IRA, giving investors checkbook control of their 401k and IRA money to grow and optimize their wealth while exiting the Wall Street Roller Coaster.
Damion is a popular guest on financial and personal development podcasts and radio shows around the country and hosts a blog at reinvention.net

John Jackson was a self-taught day trader and wanted to get involved in real estate but found that, like the stock market, there are many ways to play the game. He did quite a bit of research and found out that out of all of the strategies in real estate, lease options seemed to be a perfect fit for him, as he didn’t need any money or have to use his credit, and he could do them with essentially no risk. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much information out there about lease options, so he had to spend quite a bit of time to learn just the basics.
John started Leasing to Buy in 2003 and has since lease optioned over 600 houses. He now teaches lease options across the nation and is especially known as the ONLY person that teaches lease options in Texas.

Brian Meara, CEO and Founder of The Investor Entourage, got his start in real estate as an agent in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania back in 2007. He did this out of financial necessity, fresh off a divorce, as he found himself a single father of three, three year-olds…yes, triplet boys!
Two years later, after having worked with many investors on short sale flips, he decided to change hats and “become” the investor on the deals where he was previously the Realtor. In a very short amount of time he has launched himself to the very TOP of the industry. He has closed and worked with thousands of deals that span the entire nation and is one of the nation’s top real estate investors and educators in his niche. He is still active himself and consistently closing deals of various natures and sizes.
Interestingly enough, he never sees the houses that he buys, nor does he meet the sellers, he never talks to the banks, AND he lives in the mountains of Northern Italy one month every quarter or 25% of the year…..a completely “virtual” operation!!!
A few other things from his “interesting” background:
