The world’s a mess right now — and it’s about to get worse — so here’s what we’re doing:
We’re essentially “giving away” $9.4 million to 500 people.
If you’re one of the fortunate 500, your share could be worth roughly $18,880.

Recession 2020 — Get Ready!
As we explained last week, the “smart money” is predicting a recession by 2020.
This could mean big trouble for stock market investors. Hedge fund guru Ray Dalio believes it could be as bad as the Depression of the 1930s…
That’s when stocks dropped by 80%, and took nearly two decades to recover.
You need to prepare yourself for a new world — a world where the stock market can’t help you grow your nest egg. Bottom line: you need to start thinking and investing differently.
So today, I’ll reveal three ways you can protect and grow your portfolio outside the stock market…
And then, to help you get started, I’ll show you how to get your hands on the $18,880 “giveaway” I mentioned earlier.
The “Mirror Market”
If you can’t rely on the public markets to grow your wealth, where can you turn instead?
Simple: the private markets.
You see, for every public financial market — stocks, bonds, real estate, etc. — there’s an equivalent private market.
For example, instead of the public stock market where you invest in companies like IBM and Proctor & Gamble…
There’s a private stock market where you invest in young startups — the next Facebook, Google, or Uber.
It’s the same thing with the bond market, the real estate market, and the currency markets.
And here’s the most important difference between these two markets:
The profits you can earn in the private markets are dramatically higher!
Let me show you what I mean.
Private Market #1: Stocks
Historically, the public stock market has returned about 6% to 8% per year.
But now let’s look at the private stock market:
A recent study compiled by Cambridge Associates (an investment firm whose clients include Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation) found that early-stage private stocks have returned an average of 55% per year.
That’s nearly 1,000% higher than the public markets.
Given those returns, if you were to invest $10,000 into public stocks, and $10,000 into private stocks, here’s what you’d have in your nest egg at the end of twenty years:
- Public Stocks: You’d have $17,908
- Private Stocks: You’d be sitting on $800,418!
So, where would you rather put your money?
And with other types of private market investments, it’s the same story.
Let me show you…
Private Market #2: Bonds
After the financial collapse in 2008, the U.S. Government slashed interest rates.
Low interest rates meant U.S. corporations and consumers could borrow money on the cheap and get the economy going again.
This has been great for borrowers. But for lenders, it means earning close to zero in your savings account, and just 3% or 4% on long-term bonds.
Sure, the government has started to raise interest rates — but considering how low rates are, it’s going to take a long time before you’ll earn decent yields in the public market again.
That’s why you need to look at the private bond market.
For example, in private real estate bonds, you can earn yields of 8%, 12%, or more.
And it’s the same thing with private “peer-to-peer” loans and private businesses loans — these “private bonds” could hand you yields of 10%, and they pay you monthly.
So once again, compared to the public market, there’s no contest:
The private markets win by a landslide.
Private Market #3: Currencies
Now let me show you another private market that can help you generate massive returns…
I’m talking about the private currency markets.
You see, the public currency markets (where, for example, you can trade U.S. dollars for British Pounds) are a gambler’s paradise. These markets are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And to add fuel to the fire, you can borrow money and trade them “on margin.”
This may sound exciting, but the swings in global currencies are pretty small. So unless you’re taking billion-dollar positions like George Soros, you’re not going to make any real money here.
But there’s also an alternative currency market — the market for crypto-currencies. And you can make a fortune here.
I’ve personally used cryptos to add seven figures to my net worth already.
And thanks to an investing “secret” we recently shared with a number of our readers, we continue to make money in cryptos — even while the crypto market is crashing.
How You Can Prepare for the 2020 Recession Now
As you’ve seen today, not only can the private markets help you survive the upcoming economic storm…
They can also help you thrive.
But here’s the thing: you can’t jump into this market on your own.
For example, when I first started investing in the private markets, I relied on guides and mentors to “hold my hand” and ensure I didn’t get hurt.
My guides were there for me every step of the way, helping me determine which investments could lead me to life-changing returns, and which ones to avoid.
And now, Wayne and I want to do the same thing for you.
Which is why we’re making a special announcement today…
It’s regarding a special new program for readers of Crowdability…
Essentially, this is our way of committing to being your guide and mentor in the private markets for many years to come.
