Dan’s secretary will get in touch with you.

Due to popular request I have reinstated the 7 day original Castle Extravaganza. It will be up dated to the 21st Century – but as they say, “It will bring back the fire and brimstone I became famous (or infamous) for whilst giving seminars from 1993 to 2000 and is only partially exhibited in all my product.




This unique 7-day event focuses on exponential business growth in the shortest amount of time.
The intensive course includes detailed notes, letters, scripts, audio/visual aids and individualized
business plans of previous participants.

Dan Pena is a living legend in the seminar circuit and may not be as popular as other business
gurus out there today, but for a good reason. Entrepreneurs are afraid of his methodologies
because QLA forces people out of their shells and comfort zones. Pena says that super success is
made from hard work, big sacrifices and unconventional wisdom, which are not for the feint at heart.
He guarantees wealth beyond dreams to those with the guts to follow his methods step-by-step.
His Castle is proof enough that even a poor Latino from the barrio like himself can achieve his
wildest dreams.

Since his retirement in 1992, Dan Pena’s goal and purpose in offering the books, training, and
specialized seminars, is to bring out proven strategies for wealth creation and protection starting
with no money. He articulates his personal success development strategies and business success
coaching methodologies which he and countless others around the world, have used successfully.

“QLA Seminar is mind-blowing, it´s about correctly rewiring your head. Changes in overall outcome will be for sure tremendous. It sets you up for your personal quantum leap. Additionally the atmosphere of the castle is unique and an experience for itself. What concerns taught business skills – the big difference to other seminars is, Mr. Pena has been there and done it. So the message is clear – “let´s go there and do it”. There are no excuses. The tough school of a true texican oilman. My thanks to Mr. Pena for the seminar. “ –

K. A. Beckmann, Bear Nicholas GmbH & Co KG, Germany

“I have been involved with wealth development seminars over the last 16 years with some of the top names in the industry – Anthony Robbins, Jay Abraham, Brian Tracy, etc.

I can confirm that the Dan Pena events have resulted in adding more financial value to delegates on a per-head basis, compared with any other seminar or speaker on the planet.”
