Has anyone attended a Steve Anderson - How to Double Your Business seminar?
If so, what did you think? Has anyone used his products, and if so, how well did they work for you?
Haven't heard that name in a long, long time. He was a trainee at the same time I was. All of us had it hung over our heads- "here's this kid doing ?00,000 in his first year and a million his second (or third, I forget) how come you slugs are only doing a couple hundred?!?!
I'll never forget the picture of him standing by his pool with "Thank You Paine Webber" tiled in the bottom of the pool!
Lo and behold he's so successful he drops out of the business to make more money teaching us slugs how to do what he did. Typical of the training of the time- all about how to sell (just dial the phone and don't get discouraged by the number of people telling you no) and nothing about how to actually be a better investor/investment advisor.
Eventually got into producing audiotapes for brokers to market themselves- it was "cutting edge" for a little while...
I don't think the guy has had a particularly fulfilling life- lots of personal issues happened as I understand it. If his business has truly evolved to keep up with today's business climate then it could be worthwhile. To find out, ask him for references- lots of them- then call them- all of them. Don't just ask them if it worked, ask them why it worked.
If you're looking for a program/system to build your business then approach it as though you were hiring an employee. Don't think of the person running the program as some kind of guru, look at them as your highest paid, most valuable employee. You're hiring him, not vice-versa. This doesn't just go for Steve Anderson but anyone you might want to hire.
OldDog.........you are right on target, great advice for young pup's, and old ones alike, wisdom shared is a great thing...................if we learn from it.
There is always something new to learn, but many times it is just re-stated, or twisted into a new system, it's always buyer beware.
Sometmes it is just snake oil.............
Great advice, thanks for your incite......
