The following are people we consider to be our inspiration and our mentors. Some of them have absolutely nothing to do with our business. Some formed the companies that we use to pursue our dreams. Either way, these people are visionaries and we felt that sharing a little of their stories with you would be a nice way for us to say thank you to them for the help and direction they have given us.
Now, as the CEO and Co-Founder of Wealth Masters International, and the Publisher and Editor of the Vertical Research Advisory (http://www.vraletter.com/), Kip has the opportunity to commit to the singular pursuit of helping others live the life of their dreams.

George Herbert Leigh Mallory (18 June 1886 – 8/9 June 1924) was an English mountaineer who took part in the first three British expeditions to Mount Everest in the early 1920s. On the third expedition, in June 1924, Mallory and his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, both disappeared somewhere high on the North-East ridge during their attempt to make the first ascent of the world’s highest mountain. The pair’s last known sighting was only a few hundred metres from the summit. Mallory’s ultimate fate was unknown for 75 years, until his body was finally discovered in 1999. Whether or not they reached the summit before they died remains a subject of speculation and continuing research.
Mallory is famously quoted as having replied to the question “Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?” with the retort: “Because it’s there”, which has been called “the most famous three words in mountaineering”.
George Mallory is an inspiration with his determination to succeed and never give in attitude and he possibly conquered Mt Everest before anyone else. No matter if he did or not his story is inspiring and stirring.
