M4 Insider Is Currently Closed For New Members…
Join the Wait List below to be notified the moment M4 Insider re-opens.
When I first co-launched M4 Insider in December of 2009 (then named The Wealth Vault), I asked my partner-in-research Brad Weinman one simple question:
Do you also agree that our marketing, or a push for new members, should never come at the expense of content innovation… and the value we provide to existing paid-up members?
Almost instantly, he said, “Not only yes… but hell yeessssss! Agreed 100%”
The down-in-dirty point is that if you’re looking for a one-stop alternative wealth-building hub — a community of ambitious opportunity seekers, risk-tolerant speculators and smart investors — not only will you receive quality unique research… you’ll get a caring set of hands who wants to see you succeed.
Acquisition metrics don’t drive us. What does is this never-ending curiosity: What unique methods, what uncommon cash-flow avenues and off-the-beaten-path investments can we vett out for our members?
We’re not Editors who don’t (or can’t) have our our money into the programs, resources and investment ideas we sift out and pass along to members. Instead, we’re in the game with you.
It’s why M4 Insider was born… and still exist a decade later.
In a nutshell, M4 Insider (M4i) the private place — a members-only secure online vault — where we deliver and archive our premium research.
M4i is a “money research” membership club that essentially acts as an ongoing / updated ROLODEX of unique and uncommon (mostly ‘off Wall Street’) investment vehicles, cash-flow programs, tools, resources, ideas, and contacts.
We specialize in sifting out and doing due diligence on alternative investments — those that offer higher rewards, higher yields, and higher risks.
We also spend time finding and writing about wealth-building resources, tools, and contacts that fall under a traditional asset class umbrella… if, and only if, what we come across helps our members gain a significant edge or has proven to provide abnormally positive RESULTS.
If you’re tired of having to wade through fluff-filled financial research that focuses on boring economic data and political ideology, just to be able to find unique places you can earn above average returns on your money.
We’ll be open again soon. And, rest assured with the same differentiating premium research as you see below.
[NOTE: Below are selected research samples from past members-only Journals / Bulletins. These are previews only. You can click on each headline to get a sneak-peek into the type of content we share with M4 Insider members]
From Barry to members:
Whether you desire to believe it or not (or even care), there is a shift happening in technology. Actually, it has just truly started. We, in my opinion, are circa.1995, early internet with this shift.And, when transformational starts to gain steam; when complete overhauls of a old-school financial system start to take effect, there are going to be very unique ways to profit.Enormous profit for those of us in the know and on the leading edge of the coming revolution. In our new Equity Crowdfunding section under the MULTIPLY page, we just listed a company that is specializing in SEC-registered ICOs. It’s a high-level platform that allows companies to raise money through the blockchain. These companies under Reg. CF can raise up to $1 million in token sales (or up to $50 million in token sales under Reg. A+).The portal gives each investor a wallet containing the security tokens they bought.Alternatively, listing companies have the option of issuing a limited number of tokens that can later be exchanged for utility tokens – that is, tokens with actual functions. It’s similar to purchasing a gold futures contract and, after a time, taking delivery of the gold.ICO funding is exploding. And the quality of companies this portal sifts through and allows to be listed is incredible. The best part?You get to participate in the portal’s growth as over 100,000 investors use it to select companies that they want to have a private stake in.Wanna know more?Here’s all the details…

The concept of ‘self-ownership’ almost appears intentionally aggravating upon first-blush.
“What.. whaaaat,” Barry, “you trying to tell me… that the idea of owning my own life isn’t an already given thing?”
That’s right.. ’cause, while you may FEEL 100% free, functionally (dependent upon your country of residence) you’re still beholden to restrictions, rules, and laws that govern travel (i.e. Drivers License), taxes (i.e., Uncle Sam), housing (i.e., market rate for rentals), career (i.e., licensing, degrees, workplace politics), etc, etc.
But, self-ownership is the underlying desire to be a sovereign-individual, irrespective of citizenship, current residence and/or your net-worth / number of assets.
It’s about unrestricted choices, which can usually only come by not putting all your personal, lifestyle and financial activity under one main jurisdiction.
A member of the M4 ‘money’ Brain-trust just released an excellent overview article about how to use an International Trust to put a protective layer between your money “flag” (country of financial jurisdiction) and your your persona and other “flags.” (discussed in the article).

Joshua M. Brown (a CNBC contributor) says that “there is a great joke about an automated car plant in Japan, where the machines work in the dark (no need for light, they don’t have eyes) and there are only two living things authorized to be on the factory floor – a man and a dog.
What’s the man there for?
His job is to feed the dog.
What’s the dog for?
The dog keeps the man from touching any of the machines.”
While we’re not yet living in a reality that mimics Kurt Vonnegut’s 1952 novel, Player Piano (i.e., in that future utopia, only engineers and managers have gainful employment; the rest are robots), it is predicted that 25% of ALL manufacturing functions will be fully-automated by 2025.
Might as well not fight technology, right?
Instead you can piggyback profit off of it’s shiny metal back.
Well, for the answer, check out the new addition to our Stocks, ETFs & Funds section. It’s titled Robotics & A.I.
From Brad to M4i members:
If you’ve been paying attention to the crypto markets lately, you already know the current downturn isn’t fun, especially for anyone who bought bitcoin anywhere above the $10k range.
However, we’ve seen this kinda scenario play out before, only to see prices rebound even further.
Last July we saw a similar downturn. It looked like the sky was falling.
Then we watched bitcoin go on an amazing bull run all the way up to $20k before the recent January correction.
Just 2 years ago, 1 bitcoin was worth $377.
1 year ago, 1 bitcoin was worth $1,100.
So, in the grand scheme of things, this ‘fire sale’ is a GREAT opportunity to snap up bitcoin and other cryptos at a massive discount.
Lately, we’ve researched a TON of crypto-related opportunities. Many of the ones we quickly weeded out were either blatant scams or ponzi schemes.
Others offer cloud mining services where you lend a third-party company your bitcoin. In exchange, they promise to pay you (hopefully) a daily profit over a sustained period of time.
The challenge with crypto mining contracts though is that it can sometimes take 8 to 9 months or longer just to break even, let alone turn a profit.
Plus, as we’ve seen recently, if something happens to the company, you’re screwed.
So, imagine keeping 100% control over your bitcoin at all times in your own exchange AND still growing it on autopilot.
That’s what our latest addition allows you to do… [ continue.. ]
Excerpt from Barry to members:
Outside of the fact that he is a self-described “human guinea pig, I admire Tim Ferriss for a few key reasons:
#1) He’s a cross between a ‘keep it real’ intellect and a boots-on-the-ground risk-taker.
#2) He cut-through the boundaries of conventional-thinking about what it means to bring in cash-flow through your own time & effort. In 2007, when he published The 4-Hour Workweek, the paradigm of the 9-to-5 needed a poster boy to bring about the right kind of siren call.
Namely, that the 40–40–40 plan — where society-at-large has been conditioned to work 40 hours a week, for 40 years, to (hopefully) retire with 40% of the income most struggle to live on throughout their live — is a grand delusion.You can’t become wealthy living that lie. And while we have several of our own articles about that via our Renegade Money Series, I always am on the lookout for ‘knowledge rainmakers’ (natural seekers of useful and actional wisdom) who can bring perspective to the cause.
#3) Which brings me to the third reason I enjoy Tim’s stuff. He filters, tests, filters more. Distills what he’s learned (hard kocks and successss) and passed along the nuggets that matter.
That is precisely what he did when a reader asked him the following:
“What are the most valuable skills for financial freedom and being better with money?”
In my opinion, Tim’s 16-min reply has more “meat,” more bottomline understanding, than what most college students could ever get out of a professor guided curriculum on personal finances and investing.
So, enjoy it…
Excerpt from Brad to members:
Although it’s not often that we get questions from members about e-commerce, and specifically, selling products on Amazon, I was more than happy to oblige when M4i member PO H. hit up our support desk with the following request:
“I’m currently trying to build my amazon e-commerce business and would like some additional trainings and views you have on the e-tools to use and ones to avoid.”
I’ve shared some quality e-commerce / Amazon FBA training resources in past Journals (see here and here). However, I haven’t really discussed which tools and resources I use in my own e-commerce business… well, until now.
I dished out some of my personal favorites in my latest video reply to PO.

Excerpt from Brad to members:
If you want a safe and secure place to stash your cash in an investment account without having to pay hefty fees to a commissioned-based financial advisor, Betterment is a solid pick, and a popular choice among M4i members.
With over $11 billion in assets under management and 300,000+ clients, it’s now the largest independent robo-advisor available in the online financial space.
If the ‘robo-advisor’ terminology is new to you, these are basically automated investment services that use sophisticated algorithms to gauge your risk tolerance and manage a portfolio of ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds) for you.
More importantly, they do it for you at a very low cost — typically much less than what most traditional financial advisors would charge you.Betterment has really grown and evolved a lot since we issued our first endorsement of it several years ago.
The company recently added a number of new portfolio options and automation tools to its platform, all of which I cover in my latest update.

“Is it sometimes hard, seemingly nearly impossible, to set aside money?”
That’s the question I’ve been asking a few of our coaching clients (NOTE: A few weeks ago, we started a one-to-one pilot coaching program for select M4i Platinum members).
I feel their pain when they say “Yes, yes Barry, it is super hard.”
With something like 66% of all jobs in the USA paying less than $20/hour, who can really afford to “save,” when most are doing all they can to pay the bills
Well, somehow, someway, its gotta be done.
I’ll even take my push, my admonishment, to the next level:
If you haven’t found a way to hide money from yourself, to literally sock-away $100/mo (minimum)… then… start skipping meals out, stop buying drive-through coffee, start using coupons, etc, etc.
In short, do what you gotta do to automate the transfer of ones and zeros from your main bank checking account… to… another safe, secure spot.
There are various digital ways to do that.
The obvious is the savings account connected to your checking. But, do NOT do that.. If you’re not disciplined enough to leave it alone (it’s too easy to login to your online bank and hit the ‘Transfer Money’ button).A better way would be to use an app, like_____ (see Brad’s show ‘n tell review).And, if you’re truly after distance (from accessing the money), after safety… then, there’s nothing better than being able to knock on the U.S. government’s digital door and say, “Hey, you own me some money now!”
That is is effectively what you’re doing when you lend the government money. And, they will hold it for you (gladly) for whatever short-term increments you like.
Right now, you can earn a guaranteed 1.90% on cash via________.
