“Per Gunnar is the very definition of a true leader,” said Kip Herriage, WMI CEO. “Everywhere he goes he creates success and wealth in others, and he does so with selfless determination. As WMI’s 2010 Consultant of the Year, Per Gunnar’s selection as VP of Marketing for Europe was 100% earned.

Wealth Masters Gains New Subsidiaries

Press Release | 11/28/2010

Wealth Masters International, the world's premier wealth creation community, announces the formation of Opes Partners, LTD., a financial services and insurance company, and WMI Health and Nutrition, LTD., both wholly owned subsidiaries of Wealth Masters International, GP.

Opes Partners - The Future of Wall Street

Opes Partners (pronounced Op-us), Latin for Wealth and Abundance, will serve as WMI's phase one presence in the over $1 trillion insurance and financial services industry, first domestically in the U.S, before expanding into global markets during the second half of 2011.

"This important addition to WMI's corporate structure has been on our drawing board for some time," said WMI CEO and Co-Founder Kip Herriage. "With the ongoing, self-induced implosion of Wall Street, clients are hungry for a financial services company committed to integrity and cutting edge innovation...with the clients best interests at heart at all times. WMI Members have come to expect and appreciate our level of commitment, and the addition of Opes Partners will be a natural extension to the WMI brand. In addition, our newly hired and licensed partners will have the entire WMI suite of products to introduce to their existing client base, creating an unprecedented opportunity to build each subsidiary, while dramatically expanding the income potential for all of WMI's professional entrepreneurs. The timing for this move could not be more perfect, as it will both expand our reach into the traditional side of the investment industry as well as move us one step closer to an initial public offering."

Opes Partners will commence full operations from its Sugar Land, TX. corporate headquarters in January, 2011, and will be led by newly appointed Vice President Walter Young, one of the nation's top advisors in insurance and generational wealth planning. The selection of initial partners into Opes will begin next month, along with the release of full operational details.

WMI Health and Nutrition - A Natural Evolution

WMI is also proud to announce the formation of WMI Health and Nutrition, with official launch in Q1, 2011. The Company is in the final stage of research and development, including branding and product selection of the world's most advanced anti-aging technologies. Existing WMI Members and Consultants will have an immediate opportunity to participate in the new subsidiaries, with details to follow in the near future.

"The launch of Opes Partners and WMI Health and Nutrition cements our stated mission to change the world one person at a time, and further enhances our reputation as an incubator of world class expertise in Wealth, Health and Wisdom," stated WMI President and Co-Founder Karl Bessey.

Wealth Masters International Holds Wealth Conference

Press Release | 8/4/2010

Doris Hullett joined the Wealth Master’s International M3 Private Wealth Conference for financial literacy education at the Ritz-Carlton in Montego Bay, Jamaica July 12-18, 2010. Formerly a Community College Educator of Family Literacy, and Speech/Language Phonetic Literacy, she has turned her educational focus to Internet marketing and Financial Literacy through her business with WMI. She offers through Wealth Masters not only the M1 financial education product line component, but also the M2 and M3 for people seeking a business.

The Wealth Masters International m3 wealth conference in Jamaica focused on global economics, financial literacy, education, and opportunities during economic lows, as we are seeing in today’s economic recession.

Conference speakers were world-renowned experts, CEO’s and top financial authorities, teaching strategies in their specialty fields of finance, business and world economics.

WMI emphasizes Wealth, Health and Wisdom; Kip Herriage, CEO and Co-Founder of Wealth Masters imparts, “We believe that health is just as important of a topic as wealth, because truly, a prosperity lifestyle entails being healthy enough to actually enjoy your wealth.” During the WMI event we were informed and challenged to have healthier life styles, as well!

Owning a small business creates the financial freedom many are seeking today, especially with job loss at an all time high. It’s important to take care of your family; there is no job security. “I believe WMI provides these solutions all in one company,” related Doris Hullett.

“Most inspiring were the events designed to conquer mental barriers and challenges we face regarding goals in our personal life,” Hullett shared. “The zipline was fun, but also challenged your trust factors. The Rebar-bending activity was a challenge against one’s own commitment, and finally, a map-maze challenged one’s ability to get right back up when there is apparent failure.”

Wealth Masters International Press Release

Press Release | 4/28/2010

Wealth Masters International announces the winners of first quarter’s M1 sales awards, and Lena Bjorna, who won first price for most M1 sales in the month of January, ties for second place.

Wealth Masters CEO Kip Herriage together with president Karl Bessey proudly announced the names of the first quarter’s top producers on a company call yesterday: Lena Bjorna, Gregg Davison, Jeff Learner and Andrew J. Cass each took home several ounces of gold together with the public recognition.

"Cass, Learner and Davison are friends of mine and individuals that I have a great deal of respect for" Bjorna says. "I am humbled to be considered a main contender in a sales contest among accomplished professionals like them"

Bjorna, who won first prize for M1 sales in the month of January this year, and has now achieved second place alongside Learner for most quarterly sales, has also recently witnessed the M1 home study course undergo a substantial makeover.

What used to be a course mostly relevant to Americans and Canadians, was re-launched on February 1st in a brand new and completely international version. It now contains financial education relevant to everyone regardless of where they live in the world.

"This is something I anticipated" Bjorna says. "Now that Wealth Masters is open in all countries world-wide, this was the natural next step"

"Especially since WMI’s partner company CarbonCopyPRO started on the process of translating all its training materials into multiple languages last year. Since the two work so closely together, it only made sense that WMI, too, would start focusing more on the international market"

Bjorna, who has personally sponsored consultants in 19 countries on five continents, says she is extremely pleased to see this change.

She explains: "The education contained in the M1 program is now more valuable, more applicable than ever before. And it is a product that is certain to make a huge difference in the financial lives of their customers, whether they decide to work with WMI as a distributor or not"
