No one chooses the color of their skin, no one chooses where they were born, some will even argue that you can’t choose who you love. I travel and do business in 42 countries and I will tell you I have never seen a world more divided. We should be blessed that we live in a world where we have iPhone’s, technological advances, disruptive innovators and people who dedicate their lives to the advancement of this planet and humanity.
About 13 months ago I embarked in an experiment that I called Mega Speaker (click here). I created this event at first because I didn’t think there were enough female platform speakers on the circuit. Well, the Mega Speaker review results don’t lie. After 1 year I created more women and men speakers than anyone on the planet. I visited 25 countries and over 68 cities and I have seen people at their best and at their worst. I was also blessed to see a great group of entrepreneurs who truly want to live a life of significance and truly create a legacy for others. Sure the money is great when you are a speaker but nothing is more satisfying when someone says thank you for changing my life.
So I speak on the biggest stages in the world with 1,000 to 10,000 people. At Mega Speaker I share very intimidate details on behind the scenes, how it all works, and what it really takes for people to succeed in this business. It’s not easy but there are legitimate short cuts and potential landmines you need to avoid. There is no fluff or BS, just straight talk. I would like to equate this to a magician sharing his secrets to a small group of people who want to be magicians. I am very clear when I speak. I don’t want recordings, pictures, or press. The terms are stated on the website and on the admission ticket. Attendees cannot reveal the content of the seminars as I am doing this for FREE and make little to very little money. When I am on the big stage is when I make the big money. 99% of people are respectful of this but you always have a few people who ruin for everyone else. I guess in the same way I have to take off my shoes every time I fly in the US because someone 10 years ago tried to blow up a plane with his shoes.
I feel incredible that I help so many entrepreneurs succeed but I lost my will to do FREE events and help people. Tony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki, T. Harv Eker don’t show up for FREE events because they prefer showing up at an event where they can weed out the real entrepreneurs vs. ‘Wantrepreneurs’. I started doing this despite never doing so because I genuinely wanted to help people become top speakers like me.
Thus despite my wishes a few will go out of their way to create negative blogs explaining everything they went through calling me a scam, fraud and I prey on people. They ignore all the live success stories that they hear at the event or the 30+ video testimonials of successful entrepreneurs validated by the media that are in my presentation. Then this incites other haters to comment and of course good news does not travel as fast as negative, just like weeds growing in your grass. When people do research they are looking for something wrong with you and even though 76% of reviews online are fake, people believe whatever they read because that is what they are seeking to find, an AHA moment, a validation of their suspicions. There are websites that are dedicated to collecting these bad reviews and turning around by extorting the person/business for a sum of money. If you want it removed and don’t pay them, those negative reviews will pop up on 20 other websites and then again on another 20 websites. It’s a never ending battle. It does not matter if you are a speaker, a broker or any other type of business this is happening every day to millions of people and businesses around the world.
Here is the Irony! Now here is the ironic part about the majority of the hater blogs and their comments
- They never bought the product. How can it be a scam/fraud if they didn’t buy?
- Every single one of them is unsuccessful and don’t understand the business.
- They are upset when they find out you are selling something, however, ironically they are there to be speakers. How do they expect the presenter to make money? It’s like going a car dealership and then complaining they tried selling you a car. No one is forcing you to buy.
- In the reviews they never leave their name knowing very well that they could be sued for defamation or slander.
- They leave a fake name. How do you know, well you go into your database and realize the name does not match with anyone. Of course if you reply to their comment asking where/when they purchased, another 20 fake reviews will show up and then another which just worsens the problem
- If they didn’t like the FREE event, why did they stay all day? Why didn’t they leave? Why spend your negative energy complaining about something you got for FREE? Shouldn’t you focus on improving yourself? Bottom line is these people are out to hurt the individual they are going out of their way to attack. They are either jealous or miserable that their life is so bad and they feel it’s better to tear someone down rather than to build them up and see their success.
- The negative review was actually from a competitor. We have found that more times than ever. Once we get their IP address and found out who they are, they beg for mercy or offer a very large settlement as a sign of remorse.
- Every single one of them is BROKE with no money. Geezzz I wonder why. Have you ever meet a hater more successful than you?
My Coaches Advice for a long Time was… but now… WAR! They always told me if you don’t want to be attacked stay at home and clip coupons. My friend Vanilla Ice, told me “don’t cater to a hater, just say later.” But about 2 months ago my coaches told me enough is enough. You can only poke the bear so many times before it will attack. I have assembled what is probably the Dream Team of attorneys that specialize in online defamation whose sole purpose is to sue people who do not respect my terms of service and who seek to cause me harm with fake reviews with the intent of hurting my business. Now some people who read this might say why don’t you let it go? My answer to you is see what happens when you lose clients and income because of a fake reviews and then tell me how you feel. Now these haters will claim they have a right to express their opinions and exercise their freedom of speech. This is where my lawyers and I beg to differ. You can say what you want but be prepared to spend $250,000 to defend yourself in court with filings, depositors and a trial. I will spend any amount of money to protect my good name. I am on magazine covers, featured on countless TV and radio interviews and can legitimately say I have created just as many if not more success stories than anyone on this planet. Hats off to Tony Robbins as well for doing the same. It’s funny when you fight back that these haters immediately cry poverty for lack of funds. Recently my all-star attorney in Zurich almost got the hater to go to jail because in that country calling someone a scam with no facts can be a criminal act. Funny how she begged for mercy, which I was inclined to give in because I did not want her to get deported from that country back to South Africa. This is kind of ironic because you would figure as a South African she would appreciate all the amazing things I have done in her country.
This blog has been written not because haters have affected me but because I have decided I will not deprive so many entrepreneurs of a better life through my teachings. Instead I will turn my attention to those who seek to attack me and let the full extent of the law decide who is right or who is wrong. But if you are going to call me a scam or fraud you better make sure you have your facts lined up because your opinions will not save you.
I want to officially announce I will be setting up a fund that will help small business who cannot afford attorneys to fight against haters who share fake reviews and/or fake news which results in costing them money, opportunities and even affects their financial future. I also encourage congress in the United States to create laws to protect small business and not let the big tech companies hide behind saying it was not them and they cannot control what people post. I will make this my new life’s mission in addition to children with cancer and youth entrepreneurs which are all very big passions of mine.
Happy people don’t have time to go online and leave happy reviews because they are too busy living. However, I am blessed with the most amazing clients who have gone out of their way to write amazing blogs about how I changed their lives. These are real paying clients, not reviews from people who never purchased anything. Here is a sample below of over 10,000 of these positive reviews I have. (Please read them as they are genuine and from people all across the world.) They attacked the wolf and I came back with a wolf pack.
To my Haters reading this.
This is my manifesto, thanks for reading
