Cleaners have become spoiled rotten with all this content marketing. The average business opportunity is like $10k and all you get is some videos and manuals. My gawd masters touch is like 50k and they have sold a shit load of them.

You guys are just lucky.... right time right place.

I spent probably $100k on shit in my life. Most of it sucked too or was way less then we do for free on forums everyday.
Most before the internet.

Good point. And have you seen Strong CRB's program? About same as Masters Touch but you get a Crb instead.

The funniest part is guys crying about $3k when they have blown through a $100k easy in junk tm's and portables.
Not to mention years of lost $$$....

If they took a class from the beginning or listened to us from the start they would have saved a ton of money.

I have no idea if the class is good or bad, dont care.
I do know spending $3k or $10k on education is a much better investment then messing around with junk for years.

That's true too, I'm sure there will be a ton of value in Rob's classes, not debating that at all. I'm only debating whether one should spend $3k in training as a rookie. When most of us couldn't even pay for advertising.

AS I mentioned Brother..time will only tell ..If he can Fill classes at those prices..more power to him..he certainly has the Huevos to go forward. Cant knock that...me and the Rookies I grew up with No way in Hell...but then again gas was 50 cents a gallon then! Who knows...
Personnally I think 500.00 would be the Sweet Spot to start out with but I'm not doing it So FK me!

$500, two day class? I would definitely do that. That's what I spent on IICRC classes down in Denver when I got started.

Me Maybe? lol I'm a Brain picker. FREE INFO!.Boils down to this I guess..Jon Don..Adco and a hundred more have classes going on Yearly..If they charge 500 and you want 3,000 yo Better be 6x's better or be prepared to get Nailed.. Really simple as that. Why would anyone pay 6 times more for the same Thing? Not I firefly! But again..I don't know what Rob has up his sleeve..A Magic Bullet?
The Graduates will make him or Break him at those prices.

Irrelevant! Nothing to do with being or Not being a Businessman..Has to do with Risk Reward. You don't spend your last 3k.. on a Wish & a Prayer.. 40 + years ago I started my Biz with 1,000.00..a beater 175 + boat load of pads, 20.00 in Biz cards & Beat the Streets. Cuz I had No other Choice!
Yeah yeah everyone's a rags to riches story

You missed the point

Don't you have to spend 5K With Jondon to take the class free or something like that. That seems like 2 extra k to me...

Yes, If you spend 3k you get 50% off. If you spend 5k you get a free ticket. It is actullly not 2K more. you get 5k worth of tools or products your choice and a pass to the class.

Maybe something worth to explore guys. you have a store, and easily can do this.

Martin....Let's see how it Shakes OUT!
I honestly only wish well but consider this....

My opinion more than anything was directed to Young people like Jose who are thinking it is expensive and if it will be worth it to invest.
someone else broke it down in cost for those out of state close to 10K if not more pending on where you are. This young people would need to consider.

Do I need help using a wand
Do I need help removing chewing gum
Do I need help removing red stains

Do I need help marketing etc. I assure you they do not. They don't need a classroom for that. Thus the reason all this"gurus" do not focus on that aspect of the business.

We don't know why or what will make the class unique and above all others. 3K if you ask me, is not a big of an investment in education but it is not pennies either thus the reason all questions have to be answer with precise, straight to the point answers focused on the points that will make this class unique.

If I were Rob I would set up an online classroom. the give a small class 1 2 days to get started. and plan carefully how is it that all other gurus classes will be ethically crushed and bring to the class some of the known monsters like Kipp, Shane, Steve Andrews and others to the full class.

I'm not paying $3k for training at once but if I was offered training that was broken into sections, I would very much buy them over the long term.
Im not against breaking it up. Remember, though I am a vet at this business and knowledge, offering classes is still a new venture. I am willing to explore many other options.
