    One thing i can appreciate about this guy is that he promotes reading. He apparently has an enormous library. Can’t knock that. He has a few gems. He’s positive so it’s cool with me.

    No.

    I don't think show business runs in the genes anyway. Actors for marketing and regular entertainment do need some training to get things up to speed.

    Tai drops pure gold nuggets in almost every video. Especially in his live videos on YouTube. He’s more practical & tactical than Gary Vee.

    Why people hate? That’s on them.

    Hell, this video alone is worth millions and it’s free.

    I listen to him. He’s a straight shooter. No bs. Drops a lot of gems in real estate investment etc. He came from humble beginnings and holds tightly to his blue collar roots.

    Love Grant Cardone. For me his books are money. Short to the point and great content. I find most of his videos to be rambling and hard to find the gems. The books are full of them though.

    For being a "fake guru" as some would say, Tai is one of the most interesting people to listen to talk.

    I'd take "fake" interesting over real boring any day.

    When I was a kid in the 1980s Liberace was on tour coming to Philadelphia.

    The local news was interviewing people asking if they are going to go to his concert.

    Many laughed and said he's weird and ridiculous with the clothes and all.

    I happened to be at my grandmother's house (who liked Liberace) and said "Grandma they're laughing at him".

    And she said "Well he's laughing all the way to the bank".

    So is Tai Lopez...

    Honestly, what made him famous on social media was that ad that was legit on every youtube video. I highly recommend watching his videos and follow his advice, well most of it anyways. There was a hater who tried to debate against him in one of his videos abd he absolutely demolished him.

    yes

    the guy is laughing on the way to the bank

    ---> i don't even understand why he responds to haters

    it doesn't make sense since he's got 1,000,000 followers on youtube

    when you are famous, you don't really care about haters


    it doesn't make sense



    it reminds me of a gary Brodsky ( RIP) quote in his " get ass kick ass " audio program,

    a fantastic program that i keep listening to over and over :



    "the wolf of wall street made a million dollars a day because he didn't care what people on the phone thought of him "



    jordan.jpg




    Jordan Belfort Tai Lopez and so on

    these guys can't care less about what people think of them



    hmmmm......



    ---> maybe there are great insights here to discover

    Totally agree! Especially when you compare him to other YouTubers that are even more famous than him. Some channels are pure IQ scarecrows and have fans by the Millions.

    Tai Lopez is a top con man.

    What do I mean by this. He is no different than a televangelist. Use psychology and deep subconscious biological desires to bring people to a state where they will do anything to satisfy that deep desire, then once they are there, you ask them for money.

    Televangelist ask for a "faith offering" and say the lord will provide. Tai Lopez and all these gurus do the same exact thing they just frame it differently. At the end of the day they are satisfying the same desire, prosperity and security. It's a fundamental psychological need that all humans posses and long for.

    It's what con men tap into. Then once they've tapped it, and once they've stirr up deep emotional connection, and have pushed all rational thought out of the conscious mind, they offer a solution.

    Tai is 100% fake it until you make it. But he hasn't even made it in a business mastery since. He actually hasn't developed business mastery, he has mastered people. He hasn't mastered logistics, or engineering , or finance markets, or human resource management, or any type of business expertise that a corporation can employ (maybe copyright).

    What he has done is master the craft of understanding people's desires and leading them. Instead of getting them to hand him money he could get them all to shave their heads, or wear green, or go barefoot, or eat cat food if he wanted to. But there isn't anything in it for him so he asks them for money. "I didn't have this Lamborghini until I stopped wearing shoes and began eating catfood. That's when it all began to change for me. Do you want to turn things around too? I share all my secrets in my free 7 step guide to barefoot meditation and catfood cleansing diet."

    Alex Becker's YouTube channel and his book 10 Pillars Of Wealth are very good.

    Not so ironically one of the big things he advocates is learn by doing not reading books and watching videos.

    A lot of his views are similar to MJ's.

    Since this thread is about Tai Lopez I figured some people might have an interest in this video.

    I would hold that he made a million a day (I think the movie said a week) because he didn't mind ripping people off, the best con men see themselves as so much smarter than their marks that the marks just owe them the money for the simple pleasure of having been scammed by the best.

    From my experience, Alex Becker's integrity leaves a lot to be desired. From what I've seen, his products and content are pretty much all scams.

    I've only watched a few videos from his YouTube channel.

    This is only after I came across his audiobook a while back, The 10 Pillars of Wealth which I thought was pretty good.

    If you've read Millionaire Fastlane and Unscripted (which I have) there wouldn't be that much new to hear in his book.

    But I thought a lot of the book was similar principles to MJ's books.

    I would be shocked if Alex Becker had not read MJ's books.

    Obviously these Internet marketing guys all operate in the same way.

    I don't disagree.

    They cater to the lowest common denominator.

    Mostly beginners who are selfish, lazy, stupid and greedy.

    Mostly young guys.

    I think some might be on this forum..

    I'm sure some people really do search for quality information that they would put to use, but they are the exceptions.

    The little bit I do watch from these guys is just an OBSERVATION of what they DO and SAY but ignoring the specific advice they give.

    Because let's be real, if the information were that valuable they wouldn't be giving it away to tons of people.

    And if it ever WAS valuable it wouldn't be AFTER they gave it away.

    There is no secret.

    Most of the time it just lies in simply being BETTER at executing.

    Simple NOT Easy.

    That's what people that watch them need to understand.

    Besides the CENTS commandments there are no maps, rules, formulas or cookie cutter instructions to follow.

    It really is learn by doing through trial-and-error.

    But of course nobody can monetize that because humans can't stand uncertainty and ambiguity.

    The opportunity lies in seeing something others DON'T see.

    Then ACTING on it to test your theory.

    And of course being RIGHT.

    What these guys promote is the opposite:

    Do and Think what everyone else does.

    Once again this violates the scarcity and abundance law.

    But....

    When you say scams, specifically what is the scam?

    And which product or information are you talking about?
