CHICAGO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Private equity investor Richard Koch doesn't have much to say about the latest economic reports. His pared-down approach to investing – explained in depth in The Star Principle – has enabled him to achieve a net worth in excess of $250 million and growing. At an upcoming financial liberation seminar co-hosted with marketing consultant Perry Marshall, he'll be sharing sage advice and hard-won insights that have served him well in all kinds of market conditions.

From September 28 to 30 in Chicago, Koch and Marshall will dive deep into the latest iteration of the Star Principle. Attendees will learn to quickly identify those companies with the best growth potential. The proof is in the pudding – Koch has consistently added 30% to his net worth each year for more than two decades through disciplined application of these approaches. Those two decades have seen bull markets and bear markets, with most investors scrambling to adapt to short-term conditions.
Anyone reading the tea leaves of today's so-called recovery is probably feeling cross-eyed right about now. A sell-off has trimmed more than 2% from the market's record crest of 17,152, achieved only last week. Employment numbers have improved, but only marginally. And annualized real GDP stands at an anemic 0.88%, despite a promising second quarter. Investors have to ask – what does it all mean?
Koch's answer might be to stop obsessing with macroeconomics and devote more energy to understanding what makes companies successful, regardless of external factors. "Richard Koch began creating his fortune with investments in just 16 companies, and he saw huge returns on 8 of them. Fifty percent is a success rate that most venture capitalists only dream about, but he achieves this number year after year," explained Marshall.
The goal of the upcoming seminar is to bring together a select group of high-income individuals who want to change their lives. As Koch has demonstrated, it's not necessary to work 60, 40 or even 20 hours a week to build one's fortune when the right mindset is in place from the start. Nor is it necessary to gnash one's teeth every time companies release earnings reports or the Fed tweaks the interest rates. The Star Principle makes this freedom possible.
