I drove an hour each way. I stood in line and waited. I was next to enter the room and there were 50+ people in line behind me (all with valid tickets). They sent us away with non-functional, no-name mp3 players as parting gifts (which were promised to be iPod Nanos).

Okay, so overall this was a huge lie. I would respect this company a lot more if they didn't have multiple false advertisements on their ads/fliers.

The staff that signs you up in the beginning before you get in the doors are really rude and arrogant. And so are the people that are by the doors when you leave the meeting. The employees are extremely rude and don't smile and make you feel welcomed. They seem to hate their job, and not want to be there.

On the ad it says the meeting starts at 12:00 and ends at around 2:00. We dint get out of there until after 3:00. They don't mention this anywhere in the fliers, that this will be a 3 , or 3 in a half hour meeting.

I think they should be upfront about how long we will be in there, this is false advertising. How dare they put an ad with Christina and Tarek and make it look like they will be there speaking? When you get there , they arnt even there! I wouldn't mind hearing other people speak, I just am mad because this company has no integrity, and will use other people names, pictures, lie about how long the meeting will be, they say their will be "refreshments " there. And they have pitchers of water in a corner of the room, nothing else, really cheap and classless. They also lie and say they will give you an iPod but they don't, if you do get one it's a MP3 player that will only last you 45 minutes and break because that's how long mine lasted. They look like those cheap dollar store brands. Complete garbage. They also say the first 100 people will be in a drawing for an iPad, which isn't true,there was no iPad drawing. When you leave the meeting they give you a post card you write your address, and you put your own postage stamp and mail it out and it's a sweepstakes thing, they don't draw for iPad at the actual class. So it's another way they lie to us. I'm really annoyed that they lie about every little thing. They gave us 2 "free tickets". Hahahahaha. Wow. Everyone got in without tickets!! Nor was I asked for a ticket!! They gave us a sandwich bag with rits crackers, gummi fruit and a granola bar. And there wasn't enough for everyone. The chairs I sat in were so uncomfortable, my butt started hurting within 45 minutes, and I couldn't get comfortable. Terrible chairs!

The first speaker was very informative, I learned a few things I didn't know before, which is why I didn't give this 1 star. But I gave it two stars, because I DID Learn a few things I didn't know before. BUTTT........since they lied to me and falsely advertised their whole seminar , in order to bring me in there in the first place, I thought it was really dodgy and I decided to NOT purchase a 3 day class for $1997.00. If they are gonna lie about small things, I'm sure their classes are probably not good quality or trustworthy , I couldn't take a risk!

Sorry but if you want people to buy your classes, don't falsely advertise!! People won't take a company serious, if your gonna give them cheap snacks, and dollar MP3 players, lie to them and say Christina and Tarek will be hosting the event, say the class is 2 hours, and the class ends up 3 hours. All these lies make you look dishonest!! And there's no way I would be dumb enough to trust you and your company with my hard earned money, so you can go play with it and use my money to trick other people into coming to your seminars.

Stop lying to people! Stop falsely advertising. Start with being honest, maybe you'll get further in business.

So I would like to start out by saying that I do not work for this company nor do I have any stake or interest in this company. 

First start off by realizing that the event was on a first come first serve basis. It specifically stated that in the email they sent you and it wasnt even fine print. For you to say that they gave away your seat is just naieve. The event was in a hotel Ball room that could only fit so many seats. If you had to stand it was because you were severely late. My buddy was 20 mins late to the seminar and he still got a seat towards the back. 

Lastly i don't understand wny people complain about free gifts, at a free event. Even if it didn't work (which mine works great) how can you complain about that? You went to a FREE seminar, and were given a FREE mp3 player.

The information given at the seminar alone is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars if you are intelligent enough to put it to good use and start a business.
