Is Brett McFall the Real Deal

18 replies
Hi,

in an earlier post I noted that I am looking for a mentor. To cut to the chase .... I came across Brett McFall. He has a program which on the surface looks good. But it comes with a price tag in excess of $14,000. And only a 30 day money back guarantee, provided you can show three examples of how you used the program but failed. For a newbie that's a tall ask. Dvd's are doled out one per month for 12 months. Yes there are a number of other learning tools provided but it seems to me that its unlikely that you can grasp the elements of the program in only 30 days. So the guarantee is no real fall back position. Does anyone have any experience with this program.

    14K is a sizeable investment, i would do some serious research...

    I have also never heard of Brett McFall. This is a new name to me. 14k is a huge huge amount. It takes even years for some internet marketers to earn that amount of money. Please think hundred times before spending so much.

    If you ask me, I would never ever invest that much money even if the person offer me $1000 per day skim.

    He is Australian and linked to mal emery, darly grants and some of the other big entrepreneurs here in OZ accross the pond.

    He is hyped up salesy type person, but he is legit. I would not step into the water unless you 1) are willing to put hard yards in, and 2) have done your homework.

    Good luck.

      $14,000? I guarantee you there is nothing he's going to provide you with that is worth $14,000. Just say no.

        Yes $14000, I can not believe that.

    Information Maven, I have Brett McFall's book that talks about how to make money while you sleep. If you pm me your postal address, I'll pop it in the mail to you so you can have a read, if you like.

    I know sometimes you have to invest money to make money but $14k is an awful lot of dough!

      Well, I'm in a similar situation - wondering if he's worth the money as a mentor. He talks the talk - Is his book any good, Audrey?

      Cheers

    For $5,000 you can buy an existing business that's already profiting, spend a couple hundred dollars extra on a good designer + a real education that can help you.

    I've got 3 words for you.
    Don't do it.

    $14,000!!!! HAHA!

    I don't know why ANYONE has a mentor, or at least pays for one.

    At the end of the day, IM is simple:

    1. Build site
    2. Promote and Get Traffic
    3. Monetize

    How you complete each of these steps is up to you (but doesn't require following a WSO).

      Anyone stupid enough to pay 14K deserves to be ripped off!

      And im not saying that for the reason you think I am

      p.s. I met brett mcfall at a conference in Melbourne a few years back and my thoughts where 'nothing special'.

        Yeah Ive met Brett McFall too.

        I met him at a conference back in 2009 and I have to say, he's a really nice guy-having said that, he was trying to sell me something!

        He is the founder of World Internet Summit I believe.

        He has a book called how to make money while you sleephow to make money while you sleep which is OK but it's very basic.

        But $14k is steep!

    A few years ago a newbie would probably have floundered trying to work out how to build a website, or maintain a blog.
    Back then, high price seminars were flourishing. Having said that, I can't recall MANY that asked for $14.000. 5K was the common figure those days. Even then, many newbies struggled to round up 5K.
    I've heard many marketers praise Brett, and I'm not knocking him, just his asking price.

    There are significantly better things you can put that $14,000 towards.

    Brett is a nice person in real life.

    Looking at his business model from the outside my opinion is that he has most of his money coming in via the seminar pitching and workshop income model.

    If that is your business model then based on my awareness of other trainers available there are more qualified people to invest in.

    Remember when you are paying for training you are investing in yourself not the person you are handing money.

    Many of my students are ex-Brett Mcfall students and I can hook you up with some if you want references from actual trainees.

    Brett McFall, along with Tom Hua (I believe that his name) runs World Internet Summit. I personally met him and he's a real deal. Ask Ewen Chia, Mark Joyner, Mike Filsaime, etc. and they will say the same thing.

    I believe he is more of a copywriter and his salesletters are not cheap. If you pay $14,000 you are paying for his time invested in you.

    Of course, $14,000 is a huge sum but he has many success stories... so in short, he's real.

    Same sort of information you'd get if you spend some time reading the forum, AJ, but in a concise form.

    Here is the thing...

    $14k really ain't shit.

    No matter how rich or how poor you are... in the grand scheme of things... $14k isn't anything today.

    What I mean by this is...

    If I could get you to a level of making $5k a month, a $14k price tag is a joke. Because you are going to make $60k that year, even if you don't progress any farther.

    I built an application that builds, and deploys websites in a certain way. Guess what? I wouldn't let anyone in it for under $10k and probably wouldn't let anyone in it at all. Why? Because it can make people serious money if used right. A hell of a lot more then $10k. No, I am not self hyping here. Don't bother PMing me etc... 6 people have access to it, and that is all that will. I am just making a point...

    $14k isn't anything... if you can invest $14k and even make $28k in a reasonable amount of time, it's worth it.

    But, I don't know who Brett McFall is. I also don't know what your skill level is.

    Brett might be the man! Brett might be a con artist. I have no friggin clue. Not even going to waste time searching for him.

    But the moral of the story is... If an investment returns way more then you put in... it is a good investment. No matter how you look at it.

    Someone like me, is going to say screw that. That is a joke...

    But that is because, I don't need Brett. So y perspective will be completely jaded, like many in this thread. I also have the time to self tutor myself. I have self taught myself everything. I have always learned by trial and error.

    Why?

    Because that is just the way I am wired. I don't want to be taught by someone. The reason for that is simple. If I learn myself, I will never forget it. If I learn myself, I will be able to expand on what I learned faster. I do it myself, with trial and testing. I will remember it for a lifetime, and possibly become a master at it.

    But again, that is the way I am wired. Not everyone is wired the same. I guess it would be a pretty dull world if we were.

    I have taught many people, both online and off. Helped them learn many things, and some become pretty damn rich doing it (far surpassing the mentor). I would never charge a price tag of $14k though. But hey, that is just me.

    Many people need to be taught. I know a lot of people that need to be taught. Very few will go as far as a lot of the people that are self taught. But they still go far, and in some cases to go really far.

    The only people I hate to help, are the ones that have mastered what I call "self helplessness." People that will ask before they ever even try and figure it out. That drives me crazy.

    But anyway...

    I will stop babbling now. My whole point is this... an investment being worthwhile, depends on the person. Obviously this depends on if the investment is a good one as well. With this case being, is Brett McFall worth that kind of investment? I have no idea...

    If I wasn't making anything, and Brett could tell me a surefire way to get an extra $5k a month. I would give him the $14k in about 3 seconds.

    If I thought I could buy a stock in the stock market, where I would make a healthy profit, I would invest there as well. No matter how you look at it, spending $14k if it is a wise investment, is worth it.

    But there are a lot of variables in the (is it worth it) equation.

    But when someone says oh hell no, would I do that. I think they aren't looking at it objectively.

    Hopefully I made sense. Even though some people will probably just quote my first couple paragraphs and say I am nuts.
