Welcome to one of the most powerful groups on the Internet.
Since you’re on this page, I know one of two things about you:
- You were referred by one of our Inner Circle members and simply by knowing them, you’re one of the top 1% and you’re made for more.
- You’ve known in your heart that there was a place where the super achievers met, exchanged ideas, shared secrets, and came together to help each other become better. A secret society whose mission was exponential growth. You’ve been searching and your search led you to find us. Well done. You were right – that group is the Inner Circle.
An Unusual Group…
This group isn’t like others you’ll find out there…
With most groups, the goal is to keep growing and expand its reach.
Not so with this group.
Hi, my name is Doug Holt…it’s nice to meet you.
My “day job” is CEO of several companies, Business and Lifestyle Engineer, and creator of Author of Your Own Story, but I also serve as Chairman of this group, which is truly “A Group Unlike Any Other…”
Young tech millionaires, venture capitalists, investors, international speakers, professional coaches, brilliant lawyers and seasoned CEO’s are just a sample of what drives us. So if your goal is to always be the “dumbest person in the room,” then this group just might be for you.
It’s called the Inner Circle.
The Inner Circle is not for everyone, and frankly, not everyone who applies is accepted.
But if you do manage to get in, you’ll be able to call some of the best and brightest minds in personal development and business your friends. And if you understand that success in life is less about what you know or even WHO you know…and more about WHO KNOWS YOU…
…then you’ll like what you’re about to see.
Out of all the requests we receive each year, only a handful are accepted. You see, the Inner Circle wasn’t created for everyone – only the absolute best and those on their way. It’s capped at 24 and once those spots are filled, the group is closed.
An extremely small membership when you consider the number of applicants and people searching for a group like this. But few of them will ever even see this page. We never advertise this group to the public, so the fact that you’re here makes you extraordinary… you’ve been pulled here by some force that might not even be explainable. Or, perhaps one of our elite members sent you this page in the hopes that you could get in. I don’t know, but either way, being extraordinary is what the Inner Circle is all about. Either way, I’m glad you’re here, and I hope you’ll continue reading.
More importantly, I hope you’ll apply to join our ranks…
What is the Inner Circle?
The Inner Circle is your best chance to work with the most brilliant and successful personal development and business minds on Earth, share insider information and form partnerships and joint ventures that can last a lifetime. It was started with four simple goals in mind:
- To bring together some of the greatest personal development and business minds together to share strategies, offer advice and reveal what’s working (and what’s not working) in their businesses.
- To nurture business partnerships and joint ventures between all of us that increases the level of success and lifestyle of every person involved. We are a group that thrives on synergy and creation.
- To create a support group of entrepreneurs, small business owners and personal development professionals who each intimately understands the struggles, challenges and joys of building a lasting legacy, and one where no brother (or sister) is ever left behind.
- To create a much-needed peer group that holds each of its members accountable to achieving their highest station in life. There’s NO playing small in this group!
So, how is this different than a normal Mastermind group?
How is a conversation over dinner with one group of friends different than another? It’s the quality of the people involved. Look, this group isn’t for everyone in the sense that not everyone will qualify to be involved. We don’t say that to be jerks, but it’s the truth.
Most people that apply simply won’t get in and another group is a better fit for them. It takes more than guts and a credit card to get into this group, but once you do get in, you’re surrounded by people who are playing the game of life at a much higher level. That’s what makes all the difference in the world. If you’re reading this, you already know that and that’s why you’re here.
Success is in the Synergy of the Group
Although not everyone in the group is a titan in their industry, most are. And if they aren’t now, they’re on their way… and fast!
In the group we have:
- Successful Entrepreneurs
- Exceptional Life Coaches
- Masterful Marketers
- International Businessmen (and women)
- … and our amazing Advisory Board
But Before You Apply…
Membership in the Inner Circle is typically “by invitation only,” and it is only offered a few times each
year if, and only if, space opens up (and that’s rare). On average, we receive hundreds of requests to join, but applications are made available to relatively few, and even fewer of those applications are accepted.
So with that in mind, here are some things to consider before you apply:
- The Inner Circle has a strict no assholes policy. If you are negative or scarcity-minded, you will be removed from this group. We like a good joke. We eat well, we drink well and we enjoy the finer things in life. But at the end of the day this is a business and personal development group, and if you take more than you give, you will be asked to leave.
- Owners and top-level executives of established businesses as well as founders of funded startups are invited to join. If your business is still in “idea mode” please do not apply. This group isn’t only about business, but we’ve found that it’s people of this caliber that get the most from the group.
- There’s almost NO challenge that your Inner Circle members can’t solve (and usually in just a few minutes), but you won’t get maximum value unless you’re willing to be totally transparent. In other words, pride and posturing has no place in the Inner Circle. You have to be willing to share at a deep level to get the most out of this elite group.
- One connection could easily be the missing link between you and unimaginable success.
What if Wozniak never met Jobs? Would there be an Apple today? Who will you meet this year? What partnerships will you form? What will you create? When you’re swimming amongst the best, possibilities that were previously unimaginable become a reality. We see this happen all the time!
If you’re still reading this letter then it’s safe to assume that you’re interested in joining our group, so let’s talk about what it’s like to be in the Inner Circle…
What Being In The Inner Circle Looks Like…
The “gatherings” are the core benefit of your Inner Circle membership.
We meet 4 times per year (once per quarter). While you are not required or even expected to attend every meeting, we do ask that you attend at least 3 during your 12 month membership.
At these meetings you’ll get focused strategy time to actually work ON your business and life instead of working IN your business or going through your life, distraction FREE. Think about how much you can accomplish in a two-day meeting, free from employees, family, and interruptions!
We don’t just sit around talking about untested theories. Inner Circle members are the “real people” who are in the trenches running multi-million dollar businesses every single day.
Every Inner Circle member is REQUIRED to share their victories as well as their embarrassing failures in great detail. You have to be willing to share. If this bothers you, please don’t apply.
More importantly, if you aren’t willing to EXECUTE on the amazing ideas you hear, then again, please don’t apply.
One great idea executed is worth 1000 ordinary ones. Executing on a single strategy from the Inner Circle can return your entire year’s investment in a moment, and to hear most members tell it, this happened dozens of times during EVERY single meeting.
The opportunities are right in front of you for the taking, so you and your staff can carbon copy the success of your peers, and achieve much higher levels of success.
But don’t worry…the Inner Circle isn’t all work. We also know how to have a good time, as you’ll soon see…
But it doesn’t stop at the in-person gatherings. We regularly hold private, live, online video conferences. These live mastermind type meetings are not only guided by our Advisory Board members, but they are designed to keep you “in the game” between gatherings.
We also hold regular teachings where our Advisory Board takes what we’re seeing working for our Inner Circle members and spreads the love to the group through direct and focused training sessions online. No fluff. No BS. Just solid actionable information and techniques you can use immediately.
You’ll also have access to our private group to keep the conversations and sharing going on 24/7. This isn’t a Facebook Group, though we have no problem with that type of environment, but this is instead a private forum for only Inner Circle members.
(Value – $20000)

Five Emergency One-On-One Calls
(Value – $5000)
We don’t do hour-by-hour consulting any longer, but we do carve out time for Inner Circle members when they really need to talk to one of the group’s leaders. So as a member, you’ll be allowed to schedule up to five (5) 30-minute calls with an Inner Circle Leader (all of which charge over $250,000 per year for consulting) when you need them.
Inner Circle Private Message Board
(Value – $10,000)
This is a member favorite, because this is where you can get damn near any question answered almost immediately by an Inner Circle officer, adviser or a fellow member. This board becomes and archive of some of the best information to be found anywhere. You not only get to see what members are talking about now, but what they’ve talked about in the past as well.
Intimate connection to otherwise inaccessible players
(Value – Priceless)
If you asked me to name my single most valuable personal or business asset, it wouldn’t be a website, or product, or email list. It wouldn’t be a patent, trademark or copyright. It wouldn’t be a house, yacht, or car. All those things are great, but my single most valuable asset…the one that’s made me the most money and the one that would be the most impossible to replace, is my relationships. As an Inner Circle member, you’ll tap into this same network. You’ll become friends with some of the wealthiest, most powerful active business minds in the industry today, and you’ll have access like you’ve never had before.
(Value – Priceless)
The group will hold your feet to the fire. If you commit to a plan at one meeting, you will be held accountable to that plan at the next. And heaven help you if fail to do what you said you would do. Inner Circle members are brutally honest (as real friends are) and they can smell B.S. a mile away. Just know, however, that they always have your best interest at heart.
As you can see, membership definitely has its benefits. But to ensure our members are protected, there are also a few rules you must abide by…
All information shared with the Inner Circle is strictly confidential and intended for member use only. Sharing confidential information (other than with your staff for use inside your own business) is strictly prohibited. Any member who shares confidential meeting information or details about a fellow member’s business will be terminated and their dues WILL NOT be refunded.
We’re all here to grow, and although, as a member of the Inner Circle, you’ve already proven you’re one of the top 1%, you’re looking at being better and so is everyone one else in this group. Therefore, helping your fellow members is crucial. Together we grow beyond what any one person thought was possible. It’s through the powerful synergy in the group that we change the world. You must be active in the group regularly. Leeches will be kicked out and contributors will be celebrated.
So How Do You Get In?
Membership decisions are made by the advisers on a case-by-case basis based on three major criteria:
- What you are able and willing to contribute to the group…
- Your overall personality match to the existing group…
- Recommendations of other Inner Circle members.
If selected, annual dues are $50,000.
This investment is non-negotiable (although a payment option is available). And frankly, if it seems expensive or out of reach, that’s probably a good sign that you’re not a good fit for this group.
That may sound harsh, but think about it…
If you have an active business, you waste way more than that on staff you probably don’t need and mistakes that go unfixed. And that’s just the stuff you know about! Throw in the opportunity cost and growth potential, and the dues become a total no-brainer.
Do You Want In?
If you’re reading this page and the APPLY NOW button is still active, then we are in our open enrollment period, but time is short and we can’t hold seats while you dilly–dally. Plus, our first meeting is in March, so we need to get the ball rolling.
No hard feelings if you can’t join us right now, but if you’re on the fence I highly recommend you apply and see what happens. Even if you don’t get in, at least we’ll know who you are and a little more about your business, and I promise we’ll do what we can to help you out and point you in the right direction.
The way we see it, it’s the least we can do if someone has the patience to read this far and the guts to request and fill out the application.
But at the end of the day, there’s only one way to find out…you gotta fill out and turn in the application.
Make This Year Your Best Year Ever
There’s No Obligation To Join If You Apply.
If you are accepted you will be contacted by someone from our office within 7 business days.
If by chance you DO you make it into the Inner Circle, it will likely change your business life forever, and you might change mine.
I look forward to that.
Chairman, Inner Circle
P.S. Have you ever heard the expression, “Knowledge is Power?”
Knowledge is handy…but knowledge alone is not power.
As the old adage goes, true power comes not from what you know…but from who you know. (Or more importantly…who knows YOU!)
The biggest breakthroughs come when knowledge is combined with connections, and that’s exactly what the Inner Circle is all about: Knowledge + Connections.
