I signed up for live class for us $395.00 in Chicago Radisson hotel des planes. From the first day it was obvious he was full of s**t. By the last day I asked for a refund-denied
Let's start with Larry Crane. Claims to be "self-made millionaire businessman, author and teacher to Fortune 500 executives and partner to billionaires." yet there is no record of his name ever being anywhere near stardom. Just do the research and there is nothing behind it.
At the class he showed up wearing a suit that looked like he had pulled it out of a Kleenex box. Completely unacceptable for a speaker. He wore the same outfit all 3 days. You might argue that a humble serene person does not try to impress as he is very happy with himself, believe me this is not the case. I saw him impatiently chewing on candy as the class progressed. This from a guy who claims to have reached "the ultimate".
He claims he hasn't seen a doctor for 25 years. Well the second day he was sneezing and coughing just like many other people in the audience. I thought he knew how to let go of that?
Here is a guy selling off the work of "Lester Levenson". Editing his material where necessary, to refer to the originally called Sedona method as the release technique. Making outrageous claims the same which are disclaimed off on the website. And I quote from the website NO GUARANTEES ARE MADE THAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE RESULTS SIMILAR TO OURS OR ANYBODY ELSES, IN FACT NO GUARANTEES ARE MADE THAT YOU WILL ACHIEVE ANY RESULTS FROM OUR IDEAS AND TECHNIQUES IN OUR MATERIAL. (releasetechnique.com/disclaimer.htm)
Now I have read 3 books by Lester and he is no joke. It's Larry the one trying to get some bread teaching a technique he knows nothing about.The class itself was nothing more than him reading "the abundance course" aloud which you can just listen by getting the original course.
At other times he would just play a Lester Levenson recording and let people listen to it. These recordings are either available for free on the website or are included in the abundance course
About 60% of the class was just Larry crane promoting his numerous other products which he claims where made by Lester. But I now know all of these where adapted by Larry to make it a more marketable package.
At the class whenever someone rejected his information he simply asked them to see it as a wanting of approval control or safety so any question that didn't serve him was turned away in that manner. He also claimed his work was better than the movie the secret and that the secret was a load of crap
At times he would run out of things to say and just tell stories or waste time asking people stupid questions.
At the second day he asked for $25 dollars in singles for a fun exercise in wich people would roll on top of 1 dollar bills and pretend to be billionaires.
That same day (2nd) he announced that lunch for the next day just HAPPENED to be 25 dollars. He stressed it was paramount to order lunch and eat at the hotel because we were to participate in a special exercise. The next day came I ordered lunch and I being a bodybuilder decided to just get 5 4oz chicken breasts and nothing else because most of the other food was unhealthy. He told me there is not enough for every one make sure you only take 2What? I quickly put the food back in the buffet and left to subway.
When I came back, there where 4 big trays full of chicken breasts. No one ate them and they where put away. Also there was no exercise during lunch it was just a trick so he could collect some money.
People in line noticed the indelicacy of asking me to put the food down after I had paid 25 dollars for a buffet. I knew what had happened but I just smiled and went on with the program. Later that day a person approached me and told me what Larry had done was an a** hole thing to do and he totally fu***d up
After I came back from subway he tried to make it up to me by having a busboy bring me food to my table after I had already eaten. I declined. So he told the bus boy to put it in a box. Again I was not hungry and after what he had done I didn't want anything from him.
After the course ended the third day I waited until Larry was alone. And told him nicely I think this is a load of crap I would like my money back
He replied there are no refunds. I said I needed the money for the buffet and the money I paid for the course backThere is no refunds said he I said fine and contacted the local police.
Before the police got there he gave me 25 for the buffet but took off with the remaining 395.00 He left for California before police got there; they suggested I took him to court. Me?
I did the abundance course religiously 4 times over a period of 4 months. I had high expectations to say the least. But when I saw Larry I knew he was everything but a teacher I would want to learn from. Gave him 3 days and proved it to me.The $395.00? They will come right back to me.
Had I seen a report like this one I would have never signed up for the class. Hope someone sees it and saves themselves the trouble.
