Who Are David and Dorothy Shearer?
Both David and Dorothy are long-time healthcare professionals with a drive to improve the lives of others.
David is a physician who spent four years at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio, then transitioned to the pharmaceutical industry, where he worked for about 20 years. Dorothy began her medical career as a full-trained nurse at 17, started studying for her doctorate, and taught at 13 major universities around the country. Additionally, she’s participated in quality and peer reviews for surgeons and holistic medicine.
Even though they were achieving great things, medical school was expensive, and the resulting student loans left David and Dorothy with liens on education that were more than their mortgage.
“Going to med school, as you know, is really expensive… 9.75% daily accrued interest, [which] actually exceeded our mortgage. We had that almost our whole married life, and we finally paid it off in 2016, the old-fashioned way.” – Dorothy Shearer
David and Dorothy’s discipline and determination to live within their means deterred them from spending money on the rather extravagant things, but they were happy to have a home and make ends meet on their terms. However, they recently decided to find new ways to maximize their finances and make their hard-earned money work for them.
The Shearer’s Introduction to the Exciting World of Private Lending
David and Dorothy’s interest in departing from traditional retirement savings methods was piqued when Dorothy stumbled upon the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki in February of 2022.
She found the book intriguing and started sharing its knowledge with David. In turn, David became inspired by the idea of making money from the concepts presented in the book. With their newfound interest in real estate, they both started looking for opportunities online and discovered the Money Multiplier, an idea that fascinated them.
“Dorothy is like, ‘Yeah, I’m reading this book by Robert Kiyosaki, and it’s really interesting. Here’s what I’m learning.’ So I’m sitting back going, ‘All right, how do we make money off of this? … The bottom line is we don’t have time to do that right now.’ I started going online and exploring things, and I came across the Money Multiplier. … We had to review videos and whatnot on the Money Multiplier about 14 times [because it was unbelievable.].” – David Shearer
David continued digging into infinite banking and eventually found more of Chris Naugle’s teachings. Soon after discovering the Money Multiplier, they joined Private Money Club and attended events to learn about applying the infinite banking process in lending. As they built their understanding of the concept, the Shearers became excited about the endless possibilities there were.
In addition to embracing infinite banking to grow their wealth, David and Dorothy quickly converted all of their traditional retirement savings into self-directed IRAs and Roths. This strategy gave them more control over their savings and increased confidence in their retirement strategy.
“It started to get really exciting. And frankly, it’s never dull. It gets more and more exciting with every bit of knowledge that we learn, that we pull in, [and] that we’re able to apply. Getting some policies in place, pulling money out of those policies, and entertaining multiple deals utilizing those policies [have] really been exciting.” – David Shearer
Amazingly, Dorothy’s discovery of Rich Dad Poor Dad led them down a path that changed their entire perspective on financial growth. What started as an intriguing idea developed into a full-fledged personal lending business, and they’ve even formed an LLC to handle deals through Private Money Club.
How Private Money Club Expands Private Lending Knowledge
Private Money Club (PMC) is a community of like-minded individuals who have found success in private lending, borrowing, and even infinite banking. What sets this group apart is the focus on financial education and the collaborative nature of the network.
One of the most significant benefits of being a part of the PMC platform is connecting with fellow members from all walks of life. According to David and Dorothy, being in this community has allowed them to have conversations about private lending and infinite banking that they wouldn’t have had otherwise.
“The conversations that have occurred on PMC have been great, and the Money Multiplier discussions have also been great. It’s really helped us from an educational standpoint, and it’s exactly how we learn. It also helps to establish that comradery … and a sense of trust that evolves over time. … As we talk to different borrowers that we want to lend to or have an interest in lending to, that sense of trust really becomes important.” – David Shearer
It’s not just about financial education, though. PMC also provides a platform for lenders and borrowers to connect. By hearing borrowers’ stories and learning about their goals, lenders like David and Dorothy can make informed decisions about who to lend money to. They have found that building relationships with borrowers is crucial to success.
In fact, the sense of community and support provided by PMC has been crucial to the Shearers’ success. They have been able to navigate the process of opening an LLC, a segregated bank account, and a policy thanks to the guidance and support of their PMC peers.
Ultimately, joining PMC has been a life-changing experience for David and Dorothy. They have gone from traditional retirement savings methods to leveraging infinite banking concepts and private lending to grow their wealth exponentially.

“I’ve only flown with him two times. And he couldn’t fly with me until he got his pilot license. Now [these planes are] like toy planes. …When [David] lands, he has to actually push the plane — that’s how light it is.
