I don't know. If you're guest instructing, it only makes sense that you plan on
instructing for money, or else why give away your free labor? Considering what
you know about making money, I'd say that you will instruct. And given that, I
don't see how you can remain objective.

No need to qualify yourself to me.

He didn't pay to take a workshop. Most instructors hang out with other
instructors and network ideas. Everyone is always trying to improve, but they
don't pay to take workshops anymore. They are now part of the elite and gather
the information for free.

Furthermore, no workshop would be worth all of that money to them. They don't
need it; they have a system that works. Any instructor should be getting laid
and thus not need to pay lots of money for a workshop.

Actually, that's not true. After one workshop, you should NEVER need to take
another workshop again. If I were you, I'd check out some of Badboy's stuff, I
think you'd find his views on this subject interesting.

Allow me to clarify my statement. Professional instructors don't need to pay to
take a workshop. However, you are right, they never stop learning. However,
they're getting feedback for free, which is diff. than paying a lot of money to
take a workshop. I know you don't feel it is, so we'll just have to agree to
disagree on that one.

Agreed, but a student is only as good as the instruction he is getting. That's
why some workshops are better than others. If you feel that all workshops are
of equal quality and all offer the same level of instruction, then I'd suggest
you take a few more workshops.

The results of one students may vary, but the majority of students will show
similar results. In fact, that's how you can tell which workshops are better,
by the percentage of students who see success.

That's fair and you have every right to do that. I just felt that you were
attacking students and putting the full blame on them if a workshop doesn't
work. I felt that wasn't fair and that lead us here. However, I do agree with
what you just said above.

I do get it. However, at a certain age the expenses out number the income.
Generally, in college (who are the ones who need workshops the most and thus
the biggest client base) there is a lot to spend money on. Did you know that
most men acquire their greatest level of financial success between the ages of
45-55? My point wasn't that money is unreachable, but my point was that
students at that age can't throw it away. They need the best workshop and the
best program so that they don't need to take another one.

You also tried to cold read my general statements into personal facts about me.
However, I am not whining about money b/c I could afford another workshop if I
had to. I do relate to those who are struggling though.

There are some guys who jump around from workshop to workshop b/c they can't
find a good one to give them what they really need. Most of the real PU
development will happen on your own, outside of workshops anyway.

Then I guess I am in my greatest level of personal growth. Your comment on
college kids annoyed me b/c you just did an awful cold read on me and inferred
I was in college. Probably, I am right around your age.

disagree about throwing the money away. All workshops are not great. This
mindset that just b/c something is labeled a workshop does not make it great.
There are lots of guys who feel they wasted their money by taking certain
workshops. Then they take others and they see amazing success. How do you
account for the difference? They certainly put in the same work in both, yet
now they are getting what they want.

Any of us who took a workshop and it didn't work, and we then found a better
one, feel that we wasted our money. We wish we just went to the great workshop
in the first place. That was my point, and I feel it all comes back to the
skill and dedication of the instructor to the student.

You're wrong. There are some people who feel this way, but they are small
minority. Most guys just want to be put in the right direction.

As for me personally, I don't know where you got that from. You don't know
anything about my past experiences or efforts in this game. All you know is
that i think 1500 is a lot of money to waste and that i think workshops need to
take some responsibility for their students' success. How that translates into
me believing I am entitled to anything, I am just not sure.

You stated that this is why you didn't like to post here; hence you aren't

You implied it by stating how I was inexperienced about money and then
qualifying yourself as a financial expert for whom it is easy to make money.

That was an assumption. You got me on 1 out of 3. Good odds if you're betting
on horses, bad results if you're taking a test.

Pot and kettle. You told me I was in college ,and thus young and inexperienced(
which is a double assumption in 1 statement) and I didn't get it about money.
All were false assumptions.

It's also lame to use someone else's words in an attempt to be cool.

You cannot walk into a back and get a 1 million dollar loan with no collateral.
If you're going to buy property, you can take out equity. However, you need
money to buy the property. The fact still remains, you need money. You're being
misleading. You need to work on being more honest and direct.

You haven't been right with any of your cold reads yet. Do you really think you
have this one right?

Nope, just guys who want it to be true b/c it gives them hope.

Totally agreed, and that's what I was saying all along. The instructor has to
deliver the goods. He has to make sure that all the students are getting the
proper instruction. I am glad you finally agree with me.

You just criticized me for assuming above, and now you're assuming again. Can
you stay consistent.

No, some guys are closed-minded. They refuse to accept that their reality might
be wrong (like telling a stranger over the internet that they are young and
inexperienced b/c that person disagreed with them). It isn't from bad
internals, it is from closed-minded ness. Anyone who is open-minded, no matter
how bad his internals, can be taught.

Only if you buy into their frame, which you clearly have.

I deal with evidence. I am not going to follow something with no proof. I don't
need fancy anecdotes. I want to see proof. The only thing I am missing out on
is a reality that doesn't really exist.

Thank you for the negative reenforcement, but I believe I am already developing
natural game». Another failed cold read.

That's saying words of encouragement, not lying. It's ok to tell a guy he's
doing great, even if he isn't. It's ok to give a guy confidence. It is not ok
to set him up for failure when he realizes he can't achieve what you promised
him. If you are honest with people, they will respond a lot better, and you
won't have any backlash.

I can tell you why no one criticizes Badboy b/c he does what he says, and
that's the model I would like to see all workshops take. I believe that would
be beneficial to the community as a whole.

>What instructors try to do is

Yes, but being somewhat realistic helps as well. Telling guys they can "get
every girl out there" and "get their game up to speed" or" get that one special
girl you have always wanted" is just hype. Guys will be very disappointed when
they can't get any girls b/c they need more experience.

There needs to be some level of integrity. Guys who write negative reviews do
so b/c they promised something that wasn't delivered. You can make them believe
without lying. If Badboy does it, anyone can do it.

>>>Optimism rules!
>>I agree with that also.
>Obviously, you do not, as most
>of your points were very
>negatively geared,
>bent at attacking not

I view it more as defending the workshop students who I felt you attacked. Your
initial post was anything but optimistic. It was all whining. None of your
responses showed much optimism either. Now you're going to tell me what I
believe in.

Look, leave the cold reading at home. You're not that good at it yet. Don't
bother telling me what I believe in, if you're just going to be wrong. I
probably did take on your negative frame in my replies.

I think you're misguided in some areas, but you're probably a genuinely good
guy and I can understand what your points are. My only advice is not to make
false assumptions b/c if you're wrong, it takes away from your credibility and
your point won't be taken as seriously.
