I for one am not rich but I wanted to attend and worked my ass off to be able to pay for the trip, the hotel and the workshop. In the end I was able to pay for it all and even booked a meeting with Erin.
Desire is the fuel of power. My desire fuelled my actions to be able to pay for it. And that is why I agree with Steve and others here: even if the price for the DVDs would be 100.000 dollars then still you need to think: do I think I need the DVDs? If the answer is 'yes' than you have a desire and thus the fuel for powering anything you must do to get them. So stop complaining here, think Nike: JUST DO IT!
My cheapest set of audio programs are $200.00. I offer a money back guarantee if the buyer uses the audios as directed for 60 days. In fact i do not advertise this but I will refund the money at any time.
In the years I have been doing audio and custom audio I have been asked to refund the purchase price one time. Much of my work is refereed by therapists who are familiar with my work.
I listen to people who would never buy my audio programs that my prices are too high and it is just a scam to extract money from people who need help. I know I provide value and that if my products are not useful to my customers I do not wish to keep the money I was paid for the product.
I have seen the positive effect the recordings have on people and derive much satisfaction from helping people. Indeed the sense of being useful to people and playing a small role in helping someone move from desperately unhappy to a fulfilled, functional and happy individual is beyond my words to describe.
There will always be those who use price as a reason, often with some bitterness and blame that the price was too expensive and they were thus prevented from benefiting form this tool. The same people will find the tool without value and proclaim it has no good effect on them if it is given for free.
Those who pay and especially those who have to expend extra effort to be able to afford a workshop or audio video program are already motivated to take action and change their lives.
I have on occasion done pro bono work for clients of therapists. It works well for them when they are committed to the therapeutic process and are making some sacrifices in terms of time and money to continue therapy. Early in my career I extended free or nearly free product to people who simply said they were unable to pay the listed price. It was mostly an exercise in futility.
I see the price of Steve's workshop and the projected cost of the DVD set as very reasonable and fair.
