Not really an answer to your question, but I wanted to add this for all who might read this. I am new to this and saw Beck’s course on TV for $40. I thought, why not, I should be able to learn something for this. After receiving the course I received a call the very next night from “an associate” of John Beck. He was my personal advisor and just wanted to help me get started. He asked several questions relating to my financial conditions and being that I am in sales I played along to see where this was going. All they were doing was building a profile to sell me more stuff. The caller was literally a kid. Furthermore, he told me that the TV course would only give you the “what” of the info and if you wanted the “how” you needed to pay for a personal John Beck coach to put all of this in perspective so the info actually means anything.
Now, I’m not naive enough to believe that things like this do not happen. It was only $40, but like all of you, I work hard for my money. I’ve only had the course for just a couple of days and will spend the weekend going over it. There may well be info in the course that could be beneficial. But, if anyone else has gone through what I just did, please let us know, especially if you paid for other services. I would be curious to know what you got and if it were really necessary.
