Hey guys, today my business partner and I attended Damond John's Success Formula seminar in Joliet, IL, so wanted to do a quick review as well as tell you guys kind of what you can expect from this if you attend it. I should mention we attended the FREE seminar which is a couple hours long and is an upsell to another paid seminar which lasts a whole weekend.
My business partner had seen a Facebook Ad promoting this event so we decided to check it out. We headed out to a hotel in Joliet, IL, there's actually another two seminars tomorrow downtown Chicago if anyone is in the area and wants to attend.
The free seminar wasn't all sales pitch, they did give some motivation as well as some interesting tips and tricks and info for entrepreneurs and business owners. Alot of the stuff was more motivation and big picture stuff which I already know and have already heard countless times but to a new entrepreneur I would definately say there's some words of wisdom.
I actually learned a few things myself as well and it also gave me a differnet way of looking at myself as a personal brand so that was worthwhile.
As far as the actual course throughout the talk they talk about how it's $5,000. At the end they tell you Daymond's all about making deals so today only for $1997 you and a guest can attend.
Now again just to be clear I actually havn't attended the paid course so I can't review that but in terms of what you'll get you sit through some talks and seminars but you also get a chance to work with Daymond John and his team, you get some one on one sessions with them, they talk about branding, marketing, social media, they teach you about how to source products from overseas, talk about Shopify, Etsy, Amazon, eCommerce, etc.
The one thing I will say is I was a little confused at what the target was in terms of the topic or subject matter of the course. They talked about enterepreneurship but also talked about cryptocurrency, stock trading, real estate investing, retail arbitrage and Amazon FBA so I was a little confused what the core message or teaching the real course was supposed to be all about.
Now I mentioned cryptocurrency as well, the speaker talked about crypto, however the rest of the course doesn't seem to be that much about crypto so I kind of got the impression they were just throwing it out there because it's a buzz word, I actually asked if they accepted payment in crypto and was told no :(
Anyhow, is it worthwhile? I suppose that's for you to decide. Knowledge is very valuable, but it's what you do with that knowledge that matters. I think potentially some of the contacts and resources you get from attending the paid seminar may be worth their weight in gold, however not having attended I can't really comment on that.
At the end of the day some people are going to say any expensive educational materials are a scam and others are going to find them valuable. I'll say this, Youtubers who IMHO don't really warrant the money charge thousands of Dollars to teach people so at least here you have a real entrepreneur with a track record of success not only teaching you but providing you with resources so from that perspective I feel like it's probably halfway decent.
Anyhow, that was kind of what my experience was and my take on the course. If you 've actually attended one of the weekend long paid seminars I'd love to hear from you what you thought, drop a comment in the comments section below...
