How To Be An Expert PersuaderHow To Be An Expert Persuader In 20 Days Or Less

It’s always funny when you get emails from friends, isn’t it? Let me explain…

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from my friend Nathan Thomas, telling me to go buy a course called ‘How To Be an Expert Persuader In 20 Days Or Less by Mike Lee.” Seriously, that was the entire e-mail from Nathan. No hi or anything, just what you read above.

Nathan and I are always sharing great resources with each other. If I run across a product I let him know and if he runs across a great product he lets me know. I guess you can call it our own little mastermind group.

Why I Didn’t Buy The Expert Persuader Course The First Time Around

Now, I came across this course before, but I decided to pass on it a few months ago. To be honest with all of you, I really didn’t give the course a fair chance. I remember the first time I ever visited Mike’s sales page and saw the video with the squirrel…I just laughed.

When you think of becoming an Expert Persuader, you don’t think to see a squirrel so it just threw me off a little. It’s not that I don’t like squirrels, but it just seemed odd and so I never read the sales copy or discovered what his course was all about.

I also hated the old name of the course which was How To Be A Master Persuasion Wizard. Maybe I had to many diet sodas that night, but their was just something funny about Mike’s sales page. The other reason was I just didn’t know enough about Mike Lee and the quality of his product. You guys know I’m very picky when it comes to courses. Ever since Igor came out with his conversational hypnosis program we have had clone after clone pop up trying to be the next big conversational hypnosis course. To be blunt, most of them just suck.

A Sad Day For The World of Hypnosis

I’m not trying to be mean, but it is what it is. The worst of them is ‘Black Ops Hypnosis’ in my opinion. I’ve made many mistakes in my life. I don’t regret any of them because they have helped to make me the person I am today, but I do wish I could take back ever buying that course. I seriously wish I could build a time machine, travel back and slap myself before buying ‘Black Ops Hypnosis’.

That course has no value what so ever and the only reason people promote it is because he pays his promoters good. In terms of quality that product is something you should run away from.  It’s because of courses like ‘Black Ops Hypnosis’ that I have trouble trusting any course by it’s statements. I tend to only purchase courses other people I trust recommend. Most of the time this does allow me to only focus on quality stuff, but once in a while some really good courses slip through my finger tips.

I ended up judging Mike’s course before I even did any research. I never gave it a fair chance and I have since learned that was a very silly thing to do and not very professional on my part. Like me, Nathan’s not a guy to recommend something unless it’s really a cut above the rest. We both strive to only study the best and get rid of the rest…Did I just rhyme? Either way, after receiving that rather short and to the point e-mail from Nathan I decided to take his advice and give Mike’s course a shot.

How To Be An Expert Persuader In 20 Days Or Less Is Actually Quite Good!

The moment I opened the main E-Book of  ‘How To Be A Expert Persuader In 20 Days or Less‘ and started reading the course, I knew Nathan led me down the right path and I made a smart decision.  This course is really quite good for a digital product. You guys know I like Igor’s stuff, but this course is pretty damn close.

Mike’s story of how he transformed himself from the guy no one talked to into the man who everyone looks up to and begs to be friends with really spoke to me. You may not believe me, but I wasn’t the confident Hypnotist you see before you. I was picked on a lot growing up and had a hard time fitting in. So I know exactly what it felt like to be the guy no one talked too. The guy made fun of because I spoke differently and couldn’t afford name brand shoes…but I overcame it just as Mike did.

Mike is very clear and let’s it be known that the only thing stopping you from being the person you want is yourself. We have the power to change and we should use that power if it’s in our best interest and well-being. One of the things I really like about Mike is that he breaks everything down clearly, step by step. He actually takes you by the hand and tells you what you need to do.

I was thinking about putting a few of the things you’ll learn from his course in his e-mail, but then I thought why? Most of you reading this are going to click the link and check his sales page out which gives all the info so I’ll let you read it for yourselves.

A nice feature How To Be A Expert Persuader In 20 Days or Less is that he teaches you Persuasion and Influence pass Hypnosis. He shows you how to extend this stuff into the real world and not just between you and the client. Btw, when I say Persuasion and Influence I’m not talking about it in a negative way. Only good intention, positive type of stuff.  The better your life, better others type of stuff.

It’s funny just how easy he makes it, actually. It’s kind of like having a road map to peoples’ psychological triggers, which you can just look up and push at will. In the right hands, this is powerful information which you can really do some good with – and I bet you can imagine what skills like these will do for your business and personal life! Even with my extensive knowledge on the subjects I’ve still learned some new things which I’m already starting to apply in my life and business.

I’m almost finished with the E-book and so far I don’t have one bad thing to say about the course. To be honest, I feel really bad that I dismissed this course so easily in the beginning because I can tell Mike put a lot of hard work, time and experience into this project. I can only imagine what I would feel like if someone took one quick look at my upcoming Instant and Rapid Induction Course and decided it was garbage just because of a image on my sales page.

My Public Apology To Michael Lee

I’m an adult and I believe in admitting my mistakes. So I want you to be my witness as I offer a public apology to Mike Lee. I apologize to Mike Lee for not giving him or his product a fair chance when I have always said I would give everyone the respect I would ask someone to give to me. Oh….I also want to apologize to the squirrel.

Josh. Your review of the Expert Persuader Course was very intriguing and motivating. However after purchasing the course and making use of my time stuck inside during the recent snowstorm, I have not yet found anything particularly new or exciting in it. jch

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the recommendation. I’m pretty new to the whole persuasion and influence stuff, but looking forward to giving it a go. I’m in the field of sales so I think this will be right up my alley.



Timothy Adams December 23, 2009 at 6:06 PM

I bought this course a few months ago and I’m glad I did. Great stuff and the author touches on a wide array of topics. One of the better courses on persuasion in my opinion.



Donna Felts December 23, 2009 at 6:09 PM

Hello Josh,

Thanks for letting me know about this product. To be honest, I never heard of this author until you wrote about his program. I purchased it and so far I’m happy. I don’t think someone with a lot of experience in persuasion and influence would get a lot, but I did get a few nice little tips here and there. Overall it’s a good course, but more for beginners.

Donna :)

I would have to disagree with the statement this course is mainly for beginners. I’ve been in the persuasion and influence business for over 10 years and I thought this course by Michael Lee was dead on. Clear and effective instructors along with real world techniques.

The problem with a lot of courses are they lack real world material. A lot of people only post theory based information instead of stuff that actually works when applied. I understand everyone has their own ideas on what is good and what isn’t, but I have to say this is in the top 5 for hypnosis programs.

Hi Everyone,

I want to thank everyone for their honest opinions on the program. As with any course or program everyone will have different views and opinions based on their experiences and training background. I personally found the course to be excellent. I’m always looking for new angles or little tips or techniques I can apply to my current toolbox.

Now, with that being said I’m pretty good with Conversational Hypnosis, persuastion and Influence, but I could be a lot better. So I took a lot away from the course.

I can understand how someone more advanced may find less value, but I truly believe even the worst programs may have one little nugget of information.

I love when conversations in the comments get going because it allows other readers to get honest feedback from other real life readers.
