Once again, a guru scam!... for the small amount of 1500GBP:
Im not saying its not overpriced (especially since all the qla stuff is free on his site) but what exactly makes it a scam?
A scam would be promising something and not delivering, but he has said straight up that most of this stuff is available for free online.
No, the only man Dan Pena really wants to make successful is himself
Yes I was a bit quick to call it a scam. In fact I find it a bit overpriced, but if it really brings value, then it's not a scam you're right!A scam would be promising something and not delivering, but he has said straight up that most of this stuff is available for free online.
If someone doesn't want to pay $1500 to attend, they simply don't have to attend.
MJ could make a course out of his book and charge $1500 for it - and that wouldn't be a scam. The value he provided was much more than the cost of his book, as it changed my life and many others.
There's actually a value to investing in something, because putting money into it makes a statement to yourself that you are going to take it seriously and get as much from the experience as possible.
In a way, the money invested acts as both a filter and a way to get people to take action.
Am I saying that what he is doing is actually worth $1500? Well, I have no idea... but it doesn't seem like a scam.

This guy seems like a loser kook who attracts other loser kooks. I get his anger for greatness as I DEFINETLEY have it myself but he seems like a fraud. Trillion dollar man give me a F*cking break
Why do you subscribe to him if you believe he is a scam thenSorry, corrected it now. I got the link from his newsletter.
Offended snowflake detected. He is an old timer who got his life straightened up in the military where they all spoke that way and simply got shit donewomp womp
Well thanks for sharing that PDF resource.Don't know any other living person like Dan Pena with such a track record from a mentee's point of view. Even very old legends from the coaching field had maybe thousands of attendees - but not with such a track record in the attendee's growth. See PDF. The way he treats everyone with disrespect might not be everyone's etiquette, but he wants to awake people from their comfort zones by disrupting. He does not need any attendees money. In fact he was asked several times to write a book about the self help industry and people "not walking the talk". I think his opinion regarding selling books and seminars, but not being an entrepreneur in any other field is very close to MJ's in the book Unscripted.
So if you judge the guy or try to "protect" people from attending the QLA seminar... remember that the fact is happening in your world and not in his. He doesn't have to sell anything. He doesn't do it for the money. The attendee fee is an entry barrier. Letting attendees wear skirts in times past during the seminar was an entry barrier. Disrupting attendees a whole week is an entry barrier. Calling them DURING the seminar with abusive words is an... entry barrier.
Nothing else than an "Indecision filter". (He would call it to "separate the boys from the men"... but in more disruptive wording.) The guy has in one of his seminar rooms a framed cover of the book "Release your breaks". Now think of it... I guess it's just part of his value system to develop a mentee and this development is working for him.
His own book ("Building your own guthrie" or later new title "Your first hundred million" ) got later a preface by Dr. Kleinfeld (CEO Siemens, Alcoa, as of today Arconic). I assume, Kleinfeld is very hard to hire for a preface... ;-) Dan Lok convinced Dan Pena to share his content for free. But that didn't lead to more executions. Before that, people paid hundreds on ebay to get a used copy of the book, which was out of stock for several years. So as of today people attend for the reason being forced to execute. I didn't attend his seminars, but I was mentored by one of his mentees. Any level of achievement, you assume you have at a current level is... disrupted there. It just doesn't count if you never sold anything or if your holding is already worth a hundred million bucks. And as the level is disrupted, the comfort zone is unmasked and the will to grow regained. That's not what everyone is willing to do. But you don't have to buy any drill instructor seminar.
What is happening in the inner world of one during discussing from a first impression and a fast conclusion or judgement? You are distracted. You have an opinion. If that guy and his behaviour is bothering you... why not focusing your will towards next action steps and ignore him?
Why wasting time running around and labeling the non-uplifting content "bad" instead of helping with uplifting content or even better: checking out his free content and how the working parts can be applied in one's own life? Just my two cents for those who get trapped in this dangerous distraction field.
And yes, this post is also just an opinion - written in my spare time ;-)
Because his passion is to help OTHER people succeed, duh!Well thanks for sharing that PDF resource.
Here's my problem with Dan Pena and others like him. All this loud chest-beating "I'm the 50 billion dollar man", bla bla is a farce. If he's a billion dollar man, where are his billions? He claims he has created billions for his mentees, but where are HIS OWN? Clearly if you create a TRILLION worth of wealth, you should at least have a meagre 1% of it... or even 0.1%!
I listened to this video while working awhile ago and I was laughing my butt off...Because his passion is to help OTHER people succeed, duh!
Absolutely. Felix is a real guy who made big and his book is actionable and filled with real sage advice.Yeah - I suggest people read Felix Dennis's How To Get Rich - at least they'll learn from a real businessman.
Of course! All those kids running for investors, they're actually getting another job, since they won't be owning the damn company. Dan Pena advises you to sell your soul in exchange for capital.Btw, Felix advises not to give up on equity.
And banks and angel investors are idiots no? They'll willingly share the pie with you? More like they'll grab the lion's share and you'll end up their slave.1. Find a deal (a company for sale.)
2. Raise the capital (not from friends and families, but banks, governments, angel investors, etc.)
3. Get a dream team together (people that can do what you cannot and expect to pay/give equity for this on the first deal.)
4. Buy the deal.
5. Improve the operation to turn better profits
6. Exit, sell, retire and on to the next deal.
They want a return on their investment, of course. But, you can become much more wealthier by doing this.And banks and angel investors are idiots no? They'll willingly share the pie with you? More like they'll grab the lion's share and you'll end up their slave.
Selling courses is a scam?Trillion dollar man.. just throw a big enough number and associate with it.. that's scam...
The closest he was was with his company that was valued at 400 odd million and he had a very minor stake.
Since he was a aggressive idiot, exactly like he portrays on the videos, he was thrown out of the company. Why, because he didn't have a controlling stake.
Sure he made a few millions. Even the ten kids building a huge following nowadays are making in millions.
Billions by a long shot. Trillion forget it.
He uses Castle to show he is a big d!@k. But he rents his Castle out.
Trillion dollars man wants just $1500 .. he sells courses to pay bills. That's a scam.
I listened to a few videos... He treats attendees as slaves and he is not giving anything actionable.
Infact I will never take his advise. He says give equity to get the with done. Thats dilution.
And in business you want accretion, not otherwise.
