      Don't recommend unless you have 100 hours to follow up on everything here that goes beyond the surface.

      Be aware that this is a gateway for what I'm sure is a relatively sophisticated sales funnel.


      Motivational and a great start, but I wonder how many followed up on these techniques and methods, internalized them and used them every day? I've not read his book, but I suspect it's got the usual mnemonic methods that go back millennia. And yet, these things are still not commonplace. People just don't seem to want to put in the work.

      As a result, they become a sales tool with a get rich quick (get smart quick) hook/scheme. Great for Kwik's pocketbook, but what about actual outcomes for the hundreds who attended or the 34.6k people who've watched this video so far?

Roberts offered to return any donation that did not lead to an equivalent unexpected payment.

      How does this track with the growth of Ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes in the late 1800's and early 1900's?

    1. Our Member organization has a high turnover rate, which is a common characteristic found in the direct selling industry.

      Perhaps the reason they have a high turnover rate is because only a very few members make anything approaching a sustainable living. Bill Ackman compares Herbalife to another similar company, Vemma, recently sued for fraudulent marketing practices.
