Online Workshop Download Amnesty Days…


The most recent Download Amnesty Day window happened Monday, May 15th

Did you pay for an online, Zoom-based Saturday workshop a while back, but when you went to download your documents and video replay later from the event page, you found them missing?

Fear not! The files from these KREIA/RMG (Real Estate Mastermind Group) workshops aren't really missing — they've just been packed in cold storage by our web host, who makes a 6-month sweep to save space. The host does allow us to "revive" resources older than 6 months for a 24-hour window.

And we do that occasionally in what are called “Download Amnesty Days.” Watch your email for announcements on when they happen.

But if you’ve discovered you’re missing a workshop and would like us to bump up our schedule on holding an “amnesty day,” please let us know by sending email to

When we announce an amnesty day, we’re opening up that 24-hour window, and we’ll let you know when it closes.
