Yesterday, I was contacted by a lady. I think it might have been because of my outspoken stance on another well known wealth creation guru ...
She asked me to publish her story as she was too embarrassed to publish it hereself.
I confirm to PT moderators that I have checked her identity and she is a real person with a shocking and true story to share.
I publish it in full below with no changes to her original writing.
She wrote to me:
I borrowed £8,000 from a friend to pay for the Wealth Dragons course and actually had second thoughts and tried to cancel it but I'd already signed the paperwork and their T&C's were very tight, I was also 'talked around' by Vincent saying I'd regret it if I didn't do it as I was on the way to being 'financially free'.
I had just 8 'sessions' with John & Vincent. There was a folder provided to keep all your course material which stated what each session was about but on the actual day there were no hand outs provided, so you had to make notes as they talked, which was pretty difficult as they went at a good pace!
Although I was impressed with some of the techniques they showed us by the end of the session it was very difficult to make sense of the notes as it was written in a hurry, so a lot of it was pointless.
We spent a lot of time dancing and cheering at the beginning of each session (which was to psyche you up ready for the day) and again at the end, which is great if you like dancing
One whole day consisted of us cold calling people from 9.00am till 7.00pm selling tickets to the Progressive Property Super Conference where John was doing a presentation, it was a good lesson in cold calling and we did get to keep the money we earnt for each sign up but it was all about 'bums on seats' for them.
There's no doubt they're great salesmen and they're excellent at getting people to sign up, most of the content is good, but unless you can write quickly or have a great memory then you won't be able to put it into action.
I feel they take advantage of new investors, promising they'll be financially free etc after their course, and they really make you believe it! But it's bullshit, you get 'just enough' to keep you interested then there's always ANOTHER more expensive course after that one that you MUST do if you want to earn the 'big bucks' (that one was around £15,000)..and people fall for it, and beg , steal or borrow the money believing they're going to be able to pay it back (as I did).
I'm a small investor with a couple of properties and fell for their sales talk. I ended up falling out with a good friend because I couldn't pay her back, it was very stressful and worrying and in the end I had to sell one of my houses to do so, which had been cash flowing nicely for me. So ironically I had less after the course, not more! And it's NOT because I didn't take action, I'm a very motivated person and did everything I could.
