Nick Hodge

Now in Spokane after over thirty years in northeastern Maryland, Nick Hodge is the Co-founder of Digest Publishing and Publisher of Daily Profit Cycle.

He offers a series of products geared toward helping high net worth and retail investors manage their own money and financial destiny.

Previously, Nick founded the Outsider Club, and built it into a financial publishing behemoth serving hundreds of thousands of investors and generating tens of millions in revenue.

He has co-authored two books on investing, Investing in Renewable Energy: Making Money on Green Chip Stocks and Energy Investing For Dummies.

Nick has long championed investing via private placements, and has made millions for himself and his clients while helping to finance some of the most exciting early stage companies in the resource, energy, cannabis, biotech sectors — and beyond.

Known for a “call it like you see it” approach to money and policy, Nick’s intuition for using global change for financial gain has earned him followers across the world and led to countless media appearances.

When he's not writing, investing, or flying around the world to meet with company executives, Nick can usually be found somewhere on his small ranch in the Inland Northwest with his beautiful wife and three children, pursuing the outdoor activities he grew up with and continues to love.

Gerardo Del Real

Based in Austin by way of Chicago – Go Cubs! – and Alaska... Gerardo Del Real is Co-founder of Digest Publishing, and editor of Daily Profit Cycle.

Prior to these roles, he spent a decade behind-the-scenes, providing research and advice to large institutional players, fund managers, newsletter writers and some of the most active high net worth investors in the resource space, including those who count in billions.

Del Real’s insights and advice have made – and saved – investors millions of dollars. For years he advised clients to steer clear of most companies in the resource space. And for years the resource bear persisted.

Gerardo's due diligence and track record has allowed him to create a unique and powerful network of contacts that he leverages to maximize the incredible money-making opportunities that now exist in the resource sector.

He’s helped everyone from retail investors to billionaires maximize their mining stock returns because it's where he made his wealth as well. Gerardo's "eat your own cooking" approach sets him apart from other wannabee gurus.

Chris Curl

Chris Curl never expected to be the editor of a crypto or tech publication. 

But after growing up in the middle of Northern Virginia’s tech boom, and then spending years working at Netflix in the early days, and then watching his family’s ancestral home in Palo Alto skyrocket in value, Chris found that he’d amassed a lifetime of well-honed tech sensibilities.

Through his premium publication Crypto Cycle, Chris manages a $50k real-money portfolio, with the goal of turning it into $1 million over the next two years (and invites his readers to follow him step-by-step along the way, so they can build fortunes of their own). Chris also uncovers the fast-breaking opportunities in crypto, all while avoiding crypto’s pitfalls.

At Digital Dispatch, Chris is working to discover what’s ahead for advanced robotics, digital assets, and supercomputers.
