Jason is feeling generous… Enjoy an entire free issue of The Financial Freedom Report.  Here is our source for innovative, forward-thinking investment property and home-based internet business strategies and advice.

Income property investing is the most reliable path to wealth. History has proven it time after time. So, why do people still waste their time and energy with Wall Street’s pitiful selection of junk stocks and laughably inefficient mutual funds? Who knows? Our guess is financial media payola and herd mentality – like buffaloes following the leader in a  blind charge over a cliff. Finally, here’s your chance to discover how to create real wealth in America today.

Obviously the question is “How do I get there from where I am?” This insurmountable hurdle is what stops most people. They have a hyper-inflated concept of how much money it takes to get started. The truth is,”Not That Much!”

The sky really is the limit when you have access to the right information. Information that tells you whether or not an investment makes financial sense the day you buy it. You need to know:

Why you shouldn’t believe the “national housing market” myth:
– 41 cities around the country hot for investing right now and the hottest micro-markets within them.
– How to tell at a glance if a property is a sweet deal and, more importantly, how to avoid the portfolio killers.
– Government policies that are destroying your savings, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and equity every single day.
– Secret ways you can grow wealthy from inflation while everyone else is moaning “The Economy is Killing Me” blues.
– How to apply unique arbitrage techniques to income property and skyrocket your wealth, while almost completely eliminating downside risk.

These may be pretty bold claims but income and wealth education pioneer, Jason Hartman, has built a career and a company on putting his money where his mouth is. If you want to create the kind of life-changing wealth Wall Street and other investment schemes promise but never deliver, Jason’s team of Investment Counselors would love to tech you how. They decided the best way to get this cutting-edge investment knowledge out to you is in a premium monthly newsletter, Jason Hartman’s Financial Freedom Report.

This newsletter is like nothing you’ve seen before. It vanquishes the guesswork and uses clear language to describe the strategies of how you can implement income property investing the right way. Re-create the exact steps Jason used to become a multi-millionaire. In addition, expect spot-on analysis of the real world of property investing in each lengthy, full-color, wealth creating issue. We strongly suggest that you do not take the risk of investing without it.

If you are exhausted from trying what doesn’t work and ready to create significant wealth in your life right now and protect what you’ve earned, the choice is very simple – Jason Hartman’s Financial Freedom Report.  It’s $197 annually for email edition; however, you can enjoy this issue with our compliments.

Jason Hartman talks with the founder of, Greg Hunter, who has nearly nine years network experience as an investigative correspondent.  He worked for ABC News and Good Morning America for nearly six years. Most recently, Greg worked for CNN on shows such as Paula Zahn Now, American Morning and various CNN business shows.  Greg is a hard hitting reporter who has a history of getting to the truth no matter how difficult the subject.  Some of his stories include “Dangerous Deadly Depleted Uranium Munitions,” where Hunter uncovered the Army’s lack of warning for radioactive dust exposed to our troops on the battlefield.

In a story called “Produce the Note”, Hunter uncovered in 40 percent of foreclosures the bankers cannot prove they legally own the property. If an embattled homeowner knows that fact, it could mean the difference between being thrown out in the cold and having a roof over his head. And in a report in March of 2008, Hunter exposed the hidden fact the banks were in trouble and the economy was headed for a fall.  Greg warned viewers of the coming problems long before other reporters picked up on the looming financial catastrophe.  In 2009, many in the mainstream media said things such as “no one saw the crisis coming.”

Hunter joined ABC News in 1999 from WTSP-TV in Tampa.  He has earned a “National Headliner Award,” an International “Freddie Award”  for health and medical reporting, as well as investigative reporting awards from both the “Society of Professional Journalists” and the “Radio Television News Directors Association.”
