Are you intentionally missing the point?
Robert Allen is not a “so called guru”, HE IS A GURU! The man is brilliant at taking complex ideas and chunking them down (as Bob calls it) so they become simple to understand.
My entry level experience only cost me $15.00 and I bought my first house and made $10,000 and moved in! So what!
I still spent several thousand dollars with Bob (before I worked with him) and the knowledge gained was worth every dime.
On going education is cheap (if you apply it). Three days of training from someone who knows what they’re doing is FAR MORE valuable than a hundred semesters of college.
Ed Garcia and I charge several thousand dollars to attend our “Lender’s Workshop”, and our students are not beginners, but EXPERIENCED! We sell out every time we do one. Are we “Bad Guys” because we charge for the knowledge we share? Have we taken advantage of these experienced investors just like Bob, and over charged for our knowledge?
Look at the results: Our success rate is over 60%! Because of the knowledge we share many of our students have made Millions, YES I SAID MILLIONS!
One example: http://www.creonline.com/success-stories/ss-234.html
Are there not Colleges that charge $6-7,000 a year and give you a less than acceptable education? You bet? (Read Al Franken?s book)
This idea that for a knowledgeable teacher (outside the academic world) to charge real money for his knowledge is somehow bad or negative or exploitive, is ridiculous and naive!
I once attended a one day seminar where I knew more about the subject than the person teaching. I knew this ahead of time. But I still paid the $1,000.00 fee, because he had a twist on the subject matter that I wanted to explore further. It was worth every dime I paid, because I used that information to make many thousands!
To tell people they are suckers because they are getting ripped off by paying for a REAL education taught by REAL instructors (in this case Robert Allen or his team) is just plain ignorant and naive.
Yes there ARE “guru’s” who teach sub standard courses, just like some colleges. Why do you think JP and I work so diligently to only offer “solid” material on our site? We get hundreds of courses each year, from “want to be” gurus. We turn down most, because we only want to offer the best.
The trick for the “beginner” is to develop an ear for the “truth”. Once you have done that, the “truth” will ring loud and clear when ever you hear a speaker or teacher and that will lead you down the right path.
I have not seen Robert Allen’s latest program, but I know the man. He will always develop a program worth the money.
I know this from my experience with the man.
