And the price is so high you probably wouldn't purchase them unless you were already busted loose.
I mean there are people probably tripping over themselves to join that community, and just can't wait to give the guy more money. So it really comes down to your perspective.
I think all the free "gifts" that have come from having both books have been fine, I thought the bonus chapters were great, had lots of value. I think the free audios have been very helpful as well.
Just comes down to your relationship with money and business. Do you think it's ok for people to earn money for their work and to market themselves?
And he talks about this in the book--he says you might think I'm full of crap and you might think I'm a charlatan or something. If so that's fine, that's where you are.
For the free stuff, my only issue is don't call it "free" when I'm actually giving you my contact information. Call it a trade, or whatever.
I don't think he's full of crap, I think the info is really valuable, but I think he's fooling himself that he actually "busted loose". He obviously still cares a great deal about money, sales, etc.
I think once you recognize that there IS a Phase 2, you're in Phase 2 and that's that. You then evolve from there, wanting new things, wanting new experiences but no longer judging that. I guess it's more of an Abraham philosophy now that I think about it.
