Free Resources, Self-Study, or Coaching? Which is right for you?
Ask yourself these questions:
1. Can I work for a long period of time consistently on my own, without getting Distracted, or Discouraged?
2. Would I like to have all of the relevant resources, and daily routine in one neat little package?
3. Or would I rather piece together the best videos and audios, and create my own daily routine?
4. Do I want or need feedback and evaluation along the way?
I’ve provided HIGH QUALITY free resources because I want people to actually be able to improve their speech using the free resources.
I also want people to be able to TRY BEFORE THEY BUY. This means, there’s enough actionable information in the free stuff, that one can ascertain whether or not this approach will or will not work for them.
I created the self-study, and update it constantly using feedback from coaching clients, and research. I’ve also provided an easy-to-follow daily routine, which I developed based on feedback from students of older versions of the self-study who said that they didn’t know where to start.
So, one BIG benefit of the self-study is that it is constantly being updated.
Now, let’s get to a couple of other big questions,
1. The value of the coaching,
2. The value of the self-study.
Contrary to the beliefs of some, the Start Speaking Training Center is a For-Profit business.
We therefore must deliver valuable services that people are willing and able to pay for. And, they must be priced in such a way that we are able to make a “profit” or otherwise we would not be sufficiently motivated to take the ongoing financial risks required to sustain this business.
If any of you have your own business, you’ll understand. If any of you start your own business…you’ll understand as well.
The quality and impact of the services we deliver here are on par with, and in many cases superior to any other services you could find on the market when it comes to taking people who stutter or stammer often severely, and helping them become good to great speakers and communicators. This is priceless.
Did you know that we have Speech Therapists, and Doctors who REFER people to us?
Believe it or not, we do give scholarships, but not many for coaching. Why? In virtually every industry this following statement holds true. Some, if not many who get scholarships for personal development type coaching programs drop out.
Why? They don’t have anything or much invested in the process. When someone invests thousands of dollars in coaching, they are much more likely to extract more value than if they were given that same coaching for free. This is not always the case, but is often the case.
Another reason is that people tend to value things more that have a premium price. I’ve actually had clients tell me in the past that they were very skeptical as to whether or not my product would work because it was priced so low. There are many Psychological studies out there to back this up.
Based on the above information, CAN YOU REALLY BELIEVE ANYTHING I SAY as the founder of this program?
Great question isn’t it? I have a profit motive right? I want and need to sell programs and services to stay in business, correct?
YES. HOWEVER, that does not mean that I would purposely misrepresent, or outright lie to do so. Now, how do you know that this is true?
Here are THREE major reasons:
1. Look at my virtual reputation. Given the kind of work I do, and the length of time I’ve been doing it, you should find more complaints, more people saying this is a scam. But you won’t. Unfortunately, as the business grows and we reach more people, complaints will increase. That’s just a part of doing business.
2. I’ve provided so much effective free content for reasons stated above. you can try it before you buy it.
3. I constantly tell people how much of a challenge, and how long this process can take.
That’s a real business-killer 🙂
No one wants to buy something that’s hard and will take a long time. We’d much rather get something free, that’s fast and easy. If it’s not free, than at least let it be fast and easy.
I could be super wealthy by now if I promoted this system as fast and easy, but I can’t do that. Because in many cases, it’s not true. However, in comparison with the time and money spent on other systems, programs, and devices, this is the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to go if you think about it.
Imagine if you really work hard, you could be speaking 80-90% better in 2-3 months! And, continue improving indefinitely. Can you imagine the impact this can have on your life, 80-90% better in just a few months?
Well doesn’t 3 days or a weekend sound better?
Yes. But is that realistic given the findings of neuroscience and other disciplines? I could have almost anyone speaking smoothly in an hour. But will it last? Nope. The brain has to change and adapt to whatever it was that we did in that hour, and that’s NOT going to happen in an hour or a day, or a few days. Does this make sense?
You’ve got to make up your own mind about what you want to buy, whether you want to buy it, or whether this is even the right system for you.
Don’t listen to me!
Don’t listen to my previous clients!
Listen to yourself, and listen to the science.
This way, no amount of marketing will be able to fool you. You’ll know for yourself what to do because of your own personal experience.
One final note. For a year or two (many years ago) I obtained free audios and videos of Brian Tracy. But after I started seeing life-changing results, I decided that I needed to invest or sow “money” into his business, and into myself. So I went out an bought everything I had gotten for free, and many more programs throughout the years.
I can only provide you this service because enough people around the world choose to compensate me for what I do. When you purchase a program, or pay for coaching, you’re, of course, investing in yourself, but you’re also enabling me to continue to help so many people, it’s almost incalculable.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
