    Seems this has gone off-topic now so I'll just chime in with another scheme that some unfortunate (they don't think so) family members have been coerced into.

    Wilson Luna - http://wilsonluna.com

    Self-procraimed 'small business expert' and allegedly has mentored CEOs of 'many multi-million dollar enterprises'. Yet none of the specific information about his qualifications or even the successful businesses are EVER given.

    These family members are well roped by his scheme. They have been attending his weekends for several years now, told us they fork out several grand each time. Here's the kicker - once signed up you are instructed to promote his events and seek out other new attendees. I see them posting his crap on facebook almost every day - joining up to small business group pages to annoy the fuck out of new people and hopefully sucker in a fellow weak-minded being. AFAIK their last business went bankrupt and the current enterprise is doing 'so well' that the wife is now working part time elsewhere....

    Some interesting research and insight from previous attendees here - http://galinaimrie.blogspot.com.au/2...maker-and.html

    How are people stupid enough to follow through with this? I get angry over them wasting their time and money.

    Didn't Sketchy get involved with one of those Business success type guys a while ago?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    fucking business seminars...

    even the ones I've attended from reputable companies I deal with at work are pretty much a marketing wankfest with a free breakfast/lunch/dinner. you don't get anything for nothing as an attendee and it's all done under the "we'll show you how you can grow your business/make more profit/streamline your business" but the message really is "buy our product, we don't give a fuck about your business". it's also a "networking opportunity" which really is a dick measuring competition between wankers in suits.

    I'm pretty sure that IS sketchy

    We had one of these set-up next to one of our offices, and invited us to one of their Friday 'breakfasts' for free.

    Given I'm at work before 7am I ducked in for a breakfast "tea / coffee / water and a banana (breakfast of champions)".

    Then to attend the 'training in business planning ' it was a $50 for an observer fee and they would invoice me.

    I have a piece of advice to aspiring business people and sales people who want to work with me / for our company etc.

    Don't ever, ever do this:

    You can't bullshit a bullshitter

    Old mate doesn't even look at me anymore.
    DJ's don't need sigs

    You're thinking of Jeff, my mate with all the old aussie gear. How he paid for the collection so it must have worked for him at least.

    I did have a look over the stuff he did and actually utilised some of it myself with success (still do now actually) but I never got "involved" with him or his business.

    He WAS the mentor mate. Cant remember what his company was called but I'll have some of his gear filed away at home somewhere if you want to check it out.

    No all good mate. Not running a business myself so no point! Glad it wasn't WL.
