Financial Literacy FAQ

What do we teach non-members in our free financial seminars?

We generally teach concepts to non-members in the free financial seminars. We teach them the value of simple living, investing early and the power of small repeated actions. We teach them about BENEFITS (what product features do for people) and why financial products are necessary.

We make saving, investing and insurance understandable to the layman because we don’t bamboozle attendees (yet) with technical terms.

What do we teach in our free financial workshops?

We have five workshops:

  1. Increasing cashflow and debt management
  2. Building a solid financial foundation and proper protection
  3. Building wealth.
  4. Preserving wealth.
  5. Entrepreneurship

The most common comment in the seminars and workshops is that they finally understand the concepts of saving and investing.

IMG Membership Banefits

IMG Membership Benefits can be grouped into four classes: (1) financial literacy, (2) access to financial solutions, (3) discounts on products and services, and (4) business in the financial industry.

What do we teach members?

Members have at least 18 member benefits, including eligibility to attend technical product training, conducted by licensed representatives/trainers of our partners. Partner companies teach members about the FEATURES (features is about the product)

For example:

  • Our insurance product training is handled by Philam.
  • Our mutual fund product training is handled by Rampver Financials.
  • Our Kaiser Long Term/Short Term product training is handled by Kaiser International Healthgroup.
  • Our real estate training is handled by DMCI, SMDC, Ayala Land and Vista Land, etc.etc

We also have special investment seminars, conducted by the most respected names in the financial industry

What do we teach partners?

Partners are members who want to do the IMG business.

We have twice a week partners training, to educate partners about the IMG mission, about membership benefits, and how to build a big business in the financial industry.

We have three big events every year, two international conventions plus the annual Convention of Champions. The Convention of Champions is usually a two-day event, a training day, and a gala night where IMG honors and recognizes its champions for the past twelve months.

Look at Everything as Training

IMG is on a mission to help 1M Filipino families achieve financial freedom through education by 2020.

We have the best good-hearted mentors, like Joen delas Penas, Noel Arandilla, Bart Borja, and Rex Mendoza,  to inspire and provide directions in this mission.

But Brother Bo Sanchez is perhaps our most inspiring mentor, who “pushes” us to excel and be the best we can be, so that we can be blessings to more people. In our 2015 RISE Convention, he started by saying “Jesus was a businessman!”

He noted that Jesus

  • spend 17 years as a businessman/entrepreneur,
  • spent only only 3 years in preaching, healing and driving out demons.
  • was an apprentice carpenter at age 13
  • apart from his trade, did accounting, collected payments, entertained customer complaints

Jesus sanctified business! Look at everything as training!

He told IMG members:

  • “Your service, your product, is the financial freedom, and financial well-being of your customers.”
  • “Go out there with pride, go out there with joy. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
  • “You do not win the battle in the battlefield.”
  • “You win the battle, before the battle begins.”

Bo Sanchez related the story of David and Goliath. David said:
“I fought and defeated the bear and the lion when I was the shepherd.”

David saw the bear and the lion as training.

Bo added:
Look at everything as training! You are facing your lion, you are facing your bear right now. If you see this as training, and you endure, and you persevere, and you don’t give up, it is training you because the Goliath is coming.

And when you defeat the lion and the bear right now, you will have all that you need to defeat the Goliath. And when you defeat the Goliath, you are going to become King.

“I fought and defeated the bear and the lion when I was the shepherd.
— David”

Bo Sanchez ended with two short messages

Always choose growth over money.
If you choose growth, the money will follow.
If you choose money, the growth will not follow.

Grow in your personal life
Grow in your intellectual life
Grow in your relational life
Grow in your spiritual life

Look at everything as training.

See everything as training because bigger things are going to happen in your life.

Live a fantastic life.
