CYCLE is a learning experience like no other. It's about freedom, not just freedom from tyranny, but also freedom to achieve great things in Life. This means cutting through the fog of politically-influenced curricula, understanding the true essentials of economics, and learning how to apply them in the real world -- whether that's as an individual artist or as CEO of a large company.
Knowledge is power. CYCLE is all about sharing the distilled knowledge of some of the most successful people in the world, giving students the power to take control of their lives and direct them towards goal of their own choosing. From basic theory to the most time-tested practical experiences, CYCLE is designed to encourage students to dream big, and give them the tools needed to pursue those dreams.
This is not your typical summer camp. Sure, we have fun, swimming in the lake and singing around the campfire, but for those who come with a desire to learn to make the most of themselves, CYCLE can be a Life-chaning opportunity.
Success is all about attitude -- and that's what CYCLE is all about.
Date: This year the conference will be held on August 4-10
Location: The place is the same - a picturesque Jovariskes Village outside of the city of Trakai, Lithuania"
See what participants say:
I know that saying something changed your life has already became a clishee and people don't really understand these words literally, but in my case CYCLE 2011 was in the most literal sense a life changer.
Why? Well, I could name many reasons but probably the most important one would be that it gave my long lost self-confidence. From this everything else derived: I started to think about independent ways of making money, not just finding a job; I read and learned more about those things I liked and started thinking how can I make money from them; it helped me find what I want to do going forward; I became more sociable and made some good friends etc.
For any person that never thought him/herself of being financially independent or for anyone that has business ideas but just didn't find the person whom to talk to, I strongly encourage them to attend to CYCLE. It's amazing how many opportunities are there!
CYCLE changes your life, gives you a chance to realize your business ideas. You will meet interesting people and learn many new and useful things. This is an opportunity to share experiences and find new friends. Every day begins with yoga, if you love or want to try. Then breakfast, lectures, discussions, games, lunch, debate, discussion, exchange of business ideas, and in the evening in a friendly and warm near the fire company's meeting. Visit Cycle once, and you would like to return there again and again. This is a unique opportunity!!! CYCLE is one of the best out-of University learning experiences one may ever have and, unlike so much of university based tutoring, it is really geared to acquiring real life skills. I especially liked the part where all the participants got to listen and subsequently ask questions of the key speakers, such as world-famous investors like Rick Rule or Doug Casey himself. I was especially struck by Doug's idea of relocating to a foreign country to make the best uses of one's abilities and to achieve profits because when you move to another country you will most likely possess the knowledge and resources unavailable to the locals. Undoubtedly, the CYCLE'11 was an unforgettable experience. The program was filled with the very best blend of pure economics and extra activities. I've deepened my understanding of today's business models and have made new friends at the same time. I'd definitely be back!
