Over the last week or so, I’ve had half a dozen folks ask me (via email and in person) to share my frank, honest opinion of Preston Ely’s latest release, “The Red Pill“. So I asked to preview it and have actually been going through it for the last few days.
This thing’s releasing to the public Tuesday 10/17. So while I’m not quite finished yet, I want to go ahead and share my off-the-cuff thoughts so far. As always, my aim is to help any of my fellow investors who may be sizing it up for yourself…
A Brilliant Marketer for Sure…
As with any course/system/event Preston releases, this one’s being marketed brilliantly. No one can question, this guy knows how to promote. He fully embraces controversy (which sells well, btw) and is clearly not afraid to polarize an audience, either for or against him. Again, brilliant posturing…even his “haters” just give him more press.
But truth be told, I’ve known Preston for around 4 years now. I’m neither a “groupie” nor a “hater”. I consider him a friend…but we don’t really “hang”, if that makes sense.
We first met when he approached me back in the day about writing articles for FlippingHomes.com and promoting his $50 wholesaling e-book. That never happened b/c it conflicted with Steve’s stuff, but we actually did end up joint venturing a Saturday workshop together on Probate deals – one that he eventually turned into the core content for his eventual probate course.
One Thing I’ve Learned About Preston…
…is this: Love him or hate him, he’s undeniably successful…both in his real estate endeavors and in his online marketing ventures. (Not so much in his love life…but anyway…)
You may or may not like his personal style, his rock star persona, the frequency of his email marketing, or his Texas sized ego…but set all that aside for a second and take a good, hard look at the real guy and the stuff he’s made of…and you’ll see there’s a heck of a lot you can learn from.
Preston seems somehow consistently able to accomplish what most only imagine. And he usually does it lightning fast, while everyone else is still wondering if it can/should be done. I’ve always admired this about him… And frankly need to be a lot more like him in that way.
Does He Always Win?
No, of course not. But when he does win, he tends to WIN BIG. And when he doesn’t win, he still wins because he’s learned how to extract every bit of value he can from each and every “loss”.
It’s more than just positive thinking…more than just the law of attraction…or persistence…or hard work…or luck…
This is a guy who’s figured out how to grab life by the tail and make it squeal about any way he wants.
Said another way, whether you like the flavor of what Preston cooks up or not, it’s simply undeniable that he’s a very, very exceptional “chef” of his own life – and I mean that in a holistic sense (health, financial, spiritual, and relational).
This is exactly where the Red Pill comes from. And when you take it from this perspective I’ll tell you…Well, I’ve been very, very impress so far.
Is This Right For Everyone?
Nah, of course not. No product or service is right for everyone.
But I’ll tell you that my honest assessment is that, for me, it totally kicks butt. I’ve already changed my daily routine because of it and have experienced some positive results to show for it. I love the affirmations…but this is really so much more than just positive self-talk…and I’m looking thoroughly forward to finishing it all the way through.
If you’re considering investing your hard-earned education dollars in The Red Pill (or anything else for that matter), my best advice is to take-in everything you can about it in processing through your decision. It’s called “due diligence” and it’s just good common sense.
Reading this review was a great start. Also, if it’s still available, here’s the free module he’s giving away, along with the “affirmations” I like a lot. You should take them in as well…
See for yourself if his perspective truly resonates with you or not. It does for me…and again…that’s coming from someone who does NOT automatically endorse all-things Preston Ely. But what about you? Only you can judge that.
Ultimately, if you do invest in The Red Pill, know that you’ll be protected by a minimum 30-day guarantee. Just be sure you jump into it and start applying what you learn.
Hope that helps!
