Independent National Senior Advisors/Independent Regional Advisors:


Raul Campos
Raul Campos spent nearly 20 years as an Independent Investment Advisor, managing money for himself and clients. After the 2000-01 stock market crash, he sold his practice, took time off from Wall Street, and sought out the wealth creation strategies of successful individuals: real estate investing. He obtained his real estate license, but enjoyed limited success investing, buying and selling real estate for his personal portfolio before discovering his lack of success was, in large part, due to his lack of knowledge. Utilizing his Nouveau Riche education, Raul has now acquired and sold over 40 properties a year, with target deals netting him between $30K and $100K.  Today, as an IRA, Raul arms others with this powerful knowledge to achieve great success.

Ben Echevarria
Ben Echevarria admits he knew very little about real estate investing until his introduction to Nouveau Riche. A former miner, this Independent National Senior Advisor and member of Nouveau Riche's 2007 Winners Circle, discovered gold with Nouveau Riche. Utilizing the education he acquired from Nouveau Riche, through his company Sell Quick Idaho, which specializes in pre-foreclosure and fix and flip, Ben has bought and sold over 100 single family homes in the last two years. A speaker for many of Nouveau Riche's Local Briefings in Idaho and Washington, focusing on sales training and real estate investing, Ben enjoys sharing his story with others. He has helped countless individuals realize that anything is possible with the right education and system, no matter how far you have to climb. 

Heather Echevarria
Independent National Senior Advisor Heather Echevarria began her career working at a CPA firm, while diligently working on completing her Accounting degree. After some soul searching, Heather and her husband Ben became involved with Nouveau Riche and discovered a new path towards attaining their goals-real estate investing-and realized enormous success very quickly! She learned first-hand, as many others within Nouveau Riche have learned, that education does not cost money- it makes money! Today, she shares this powerful lesson with others and helps them grasp their dreams with the help of Nouveau Riche.

Charles Hosea
Independent National Senior Advisor Charles Hosea possesses a true gift for establishing and conquering goals, and helping others to achieve greatness. When he was only 10 years old, Charles immigrated to the United States with his family and a burning desire to live the "American Dream." Helping out with his father's landscaping business, Charles learned the ins and outs of business and consulted with his father's established clients, who taught him about real estate as a route to wealth creation.  Now, the proud father of seven children and two grandchildren, Charles owns a Social Service agency that serves under-privileged children and families, youth-at-risk and disabled adults. In August of 2003, he discovered Nouveau Riche-an opportunity to transform his life and pay forward his blessings to countless others, including the islanders of Hawaii.  

Jason Nedrow
Independent National Senior Advisor Jason Nedrow brings with him more than a decade of direct sales experience. Coming from a family of farmers, he learned to work hard at an early age. Before finding Nouveau Riche, his door-to-door vacuum salesman job consumed his life. After much research and soul searching for a career he could feel passionate about, Jason found Nouveau Riche. Although he had no prior real estate experience, he believed in the Nouveau Riche system and devoted himself to becoming a success. Today, Jason believes the secret behind his success is his focus on the people. "It's been awesome to help people meet their educational and financial goals and give them options!"

Myrna Nieves
Independent Regional Advisor Myrna Nieves, a former Real Estate Agent who rapidly built a multi-million dollar business, has proven that anything is possible with hard work and determination.  After only being involved with Nouveau Riche for two years, Myrna has become a seasoned real estate investor. During her 10 years in the industry, she only owned one house-her own; but within her first 6 months with Nouveau Riche, she acquired 10 homes cash flowing $4,700 a month!  Working as a team with her husband David, she believes that they have "found the greatest opportunity there is with Nouveau Riche and look forward to sharing it with as many people as they can!"

Andre Popa
Born in Romania under Communism, Andre Popa came to America with nothing and did not speak English. As a young boy, he was forced to work to help his family survive. He decided early on to live the "American Dream," and knew the only way to achieve his dreams was through business ownership; however, lack of financial education created many road-blocks to his success. When at last he and his wife Tami built a very successful design and construction firm, they soon realized their sacrifice of time and freedom in the process. Having dabbled in real estate, making a lot of money on high end fix and flips, they knew they had much more to learn. Nouveau Riche's education afforded them the opportunity to take their real estate investing to the next level and walk away from their stressful business and lifestyle that once "owned" them! Today, Andre has learned that success is a decision and with the "RIGHT" education and system you can live the "American Dream!"

Tami Popa
Tami grew up the only child of a single mother and began working at the age of 12. Big dreams and a burning desire to change the course of her family's financial future led her down an entrepreneurial path. Buying a franchise business with her mother, she learned key information about business and systems at the ripe age of 18. By 19, she was producing over $10k per month through marketing and networking with other business owners. Then, she and her husband Andre spent seven years building and running a design and construction firm, while simultaneously leveraging the real estate market. When Tami discovered Nouveau Riche, she knew she'd found "one of the best systems in place" and the vehicle to walk away from their multi-million dollar design and construction firm to achieve the freedom and lifestyle of their dreams. Now, a wife, mother and Independent National Senior Advisor, Tami spends the time she desires with her family and teaches others how to create wealth and freedom with Nouveau Riche.

Kendall Stock
Independent Regional Advisor Kendall Stock possessed no real estate experience, no sales experience and was trying to get into dental school when he stumbled across Nouveau Riche.  It only took a few months for Kendall to realize that his dreams of becoming a dentist were drastically changing, as he saw the opportunities unfolding with Nouveau Riche. Since joining Nouveau Riche, Kendall has made over 40 deals, utilizing many of the different strategies, including short sales, fix and flip, buy and hold, and even developing international high-rise apartment buildings.  He loves the interaction with students and instructors of the Real Estate Investment College and enjoys sharing his experience and putting his Nouveau Riche education to work!

Jeff Thompson
Independent National Senior Advisor Jeff Thompson has generated great success and financial freedom through Nouveau Riche with his exceptional leadership, responsibility, and discipline skills.  Jeff credits his parents for creating an atmosphere of achievement and entrepreneurial spirit that led him to set up a business while still in high school. Along his career path, he endured several companies and promises crumbling along with his hopes and dreams. Focusing his efforts on a company he and his wife started, although successful, the major economic shifts in 2000-2001 proved even small business owners need to be diversified.  He now enjoys working with Nouveau Riche, sharing his experience and strategies for success with individuals and families across the country! 

Cheri Tree
Growing up living all around the world with her military parents and five siblings, Cheri learned much about freedom, cultures, relationships, discipline, and independence.  After graduating from a military boarding school, she studied business and finance, as well as recreation and leadership. Entering the world of financial planning, she was promoted to a Regional Vice President with a Fortune 100 company, but became frustrated with giving "traditional financial advice" that seemed to trap people consistently in Middle Class. Then Cheri discovered Nouveau Riche-the launch pad to her current success. As an Independent National Senior Advisor and member of Nouveau Riche's 2005 and 2006 Winners Circle, Cheri has consistently made the Top Ten list of income earners nationwide and has developed a real estate portfolio with properties spanning the country. She shares her passion for business and extreme drive to help others enjoy tremendous financial success.

Chad Wade
While growing up, Chad's business ventures included lawn mowing, auto detailing, and door to door sales. Working in his family's local dry cleaning business for 13 years, he started out at minimum wage and climbed his way to the top. He then began his personal development and became a licensed facilitator and mentor for Og Mandino. Soon after he became dissatisfied with his income and realized there was more "out there" for him. Creating Team Mastermind to mentor and support people in getting out of the rat race and moving toward their success, he grew this business to a large organization in a short period of time. He knew he loved helping people and wanted to find a company where he could make a living doing so. Finding the great leaders of Nouveau Riche, Jim Piccolo and Bob Snyder, he jumped at the opportunity to join Nouveau Riche and learn how to build a thriving real estate portfolio.  Since then, he's been able to create great success in real estate and help many others do the same. 

Justin Yates
Independent National Senior Advisor Justin Yates excels as a leader within the Nouveau Riche Community, as a "top income earner," leading many on his team to "top income earner" status.  Possessing a Bachelors degree in Finance and a Masters degree in Business Information Systems, Justin has utilized the Nouveau Riche educational system to buy and sell millions of dollars of real estate. Exuding tremendous enthusiasm for real estate has not only helped him build his portfolio, but it has also allowed him to assist many others throughout the country in achieving success. He describes his greatest pleasure in business as "seeing clients change their lives and start designing their futures."

Hi I've heard that Mr Yurasek battled a serious drug addition in the past. Is that true? How did he beat it?
