Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

"Rich" Bernstein is a con artist who utilizes the guise of "financial coaching" to ascertain the available wealth of a profitable businessperson or individual to con them into any number of "investments" which are simply schemes to rob them.

He is a convicted felon, has multiple liens from individuals and the IRS in place and has multiple trial dates approaching.

He, like the plague, is to be avoided at all costs. One should also beware of his lap-dogs; Bryan Drewes and John Gray, as well.

Mars Venus Coaching Scammed My Business

AUTHOR: Mars Venus Coaching - (USA)

I had to write in after reading all the bad press about Mars Venus Coaching. I wish I had read it before we hired Scott Lippit to be our business coach. He and his wife Pam Lippitt worked me and my management team over with the idea of business coaching and Mars Venus Coaching. They offered us a 90-Day "action" plan and some shiny "formulas for our success" when we discussed it in the beginning. They were all things I loved to hear and I had read John Gray's books and always valued his insight so I thought it was a safe bet to go with Mars Venus Coaching.  But it was just a lot of lip service. Sure they met with us each week - which soon became phone calls after they had brought in more clients to scam. After 30 days, we actually had gone down in sales an dlost 2 employees over the changes they suported us in doing. 60 day slater. Our sales had dipped lower and everyone around me and my management team was wondering why we even started with them. At the end of our 90 days and thousands of daollars, we were left with nothing to show for it but alot of extra work.
We moved on and hired another coaching company and the results have been astounding. We have grown our sales numbers and we are where we wanted to be last year. 

I would advise any business owner to avoid Mars Venus Coaching at all costs.

A Disgrace to the Coaching Community

AUTHOR: Mars Venus Coaching - (United States of America)

If you are looking to be a Coach and truly make an impact in a person's life and business, there are so many opportunities for you to be successful. So that's why I am still shocked when people choose to associate themselves with me, Rich Bernstein (or Richard Bernstein as the judge calls me) and Mars Venus Coaching. We don't have a good history and a few of our leaders have been convicted of felonies, including me, Rich Bernstein, and Scott Lippitt.

To make matters worse I am again up for a trial on a case whereby I am accused of stealing money from one of my coaching clients.  Basically the allegations are that I was coachng this couple and it stretched into giving financial advice and they lost money on an investment while i made money on their investment. See, another one of my coaching buddies - Bryan Drewes - was starting this financial planning company and asked if I wanted to invest. I said no because I knew it was a worthless venture and simple scam but I figured one of my naive clients would want to invest. I said to him if I bring you $250k, will you pay me $150k "commission". He said sure. I still don't see anything wrong with it because my coaching clients were paid some money back. At least $20 or $30k i think. of course not all of it because the economy tanked and who would have known that was going to happen?

Anyway, I am still amazed coaches want to join "my team" after all of this. They really help to add credibility to my character. Even better, I have "trained" them to scam their clients much like I do so they can continue to pay me every month:
