Around one month ago, I featured a question from the Ask Community about IMG or the International Marketing Group.
Motivated by the positive reviews and reactions from different readers, I tasked myself to get to know the company better and see what they are really all about.
Now, I’d like to share with you my personal experience in becoming a member of IMG, and attending their Wealth Academy.
First of all, I’d like to say that there isn’t really much that you can research about IMG online, and currently, your best source of information about the company would simply be their official website.
In any case, IMG actually stands for International Marketing Group and they operate as a financial distribution company. They’re actually a big company with offices and marketing arms in the US, Canada, Taiwan, Hongkong, Philippines and other countries worldwide.
Being a “financial distribution company” means they carry a broad array of financial products & services – from insurance to mutual funds, from real estate to loans management, and several other personal finance and investment products.
In simple terms, they are a “one-stop shop” for all your financial needs.
Now here comes an interesting observation about IMG…
Unlike most companies whose focus is in selling their products, IMG is more focused on educating and helping people increase their financial I.Q. – because they believe that when you understand the importance of saving and investing – then you’ll already take it upon yourself to develop a financial strategy and learn more about their products and services.
As an analogy, let’s say that IMG is an umbrella salesman and you’re a pedestrian passing by the sidewalk. Most salesman will try to sell you their umbrella, telling you how cheap but sturdy their product is.
But IMG will not do that, instead… they will inform you that the weather forecast for the day is that there is a high probability of rainfall later. If you went out of your house prepared, then you’re all good – but if not, then I’m sure you’ll suddenly consider buying that umbrella, right?
The IMG Wealth Academy
The IMG Wealth Academy is where your journey towards financial literacy begins, so to speak. It is the company’s “school” where you can attend various financial management lectures on business, investments and personal finance.
Currently, they have 33 modules which you can learn from. And so far, I’ve been able to attend three.
The first one I attended was called Series 1, which is about Practical Money Management Strategies. IMG Wealth Academy National Marketing Director, and now friend, Dr. Jaime Lorenzo, gave me a one-on-one table lecture about it.
The second one which I attended was Series 2, which is about Creating Multiple Passive Income Streams. This time, I went to their office in Makati and attended the classroom seminar.
The most recent one, which I also attended in a classroom, was called Upstart School, which basically continues where Series 2 left of. The most interesting learning I got on this one is the so-called, “Four Cornerstones of a Strong Financial Foundation”.
Three down, and thirty more to go. There is still a lot for me to learn in the Wealth Academy!
Join Me, Maybe?
The good news is that, attending Series 1 and Series 2 at the IMG Wealth Academy is FREE and OPEN for everyone. Moreover, these seminars are regularly held in different cities in the country and around the world!
I am attending the seminars in Makati City, but they also conduct them in Laguna, Naga, Baler, Tacloban, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Iligan and Cagayan de Oro.
For OFWs, they also offer seminars in Singapore, Hong Kong, UAE and Brunei.
And I was informed that more cities and countries will be added to the list soon.
The best thing that I like so far about attending the IMG Wealth Academy seminars is feeling the positive vibe of the people around. They’re a group of highly motivated people, each one with an inspiring story to tell.
The most memorable so far, was when someone introduced herself and told me that she is a regular reader of my blog. I was really surprised that she recognized me and knew who I am.
She then told me that reading my blog has inspired her to pursue financial freedom; and that dream has led her to discover IMG Wealth Academy, which has been helping her for many months now in learning how to reach that goal.
