I received my longest (ever) testimonial from a private coaching student I trained in January 2010. I decided to post it, unedited (sorry about the cuss words, but I didn't write them):


(March 20, 2010)

When asked to summarize the core of his philosophy, Ralph Waldo Emerson replied, “the infinitude of the private man." If you asked John Lee for his outlook on life, he would probably offer a similar sentiment. However, where Emerson was known primarily as a thinker, John is a man of action. John is an example of someone that refused to be pigeonholed by society into becoming an institutionalized slave, and instead carved a path for himself through mastery of short term equity trading. For those of us lucky enough to know him, he is a true leader that changes people’s lives.

Before signing up for John’s training session, I was a college grad with a fresh job doing financial consulting . In college I had the average mindset of everyone else in the pack, “do as well as possible in school, and try to land the best paying job that will look good on a resume.” Both of my parents are self-employed, yet somewhere down the line I was brainwashed by society into thinking there was only one way to secure a future. I wasn’t sure where I really wanted my life to go. Soon after starting work, I quickly realized that being a corporate slave wasn’t for me. My biggest issue is that I am paid for my time. I know I can use my time more productively. As an employee you are rated on your “utilization” but for fucks sake how can you look at yourself in the mirror when you are being “utilized” essentially for someone else’s gain? How about trying to utilize your own time for your personal gain and development? This thought would eat at me constantly and I needed a way to live on my own terms, within a framework for creating self-made success. John’s teaching is geared toward those with the individualist spirit of Emerson, who wish to take control of their lives, but have the motivation to make it happen. He offers a framework for owning your future.

If you follow John’s blog, you know his methods work. The results speak for themselves. John has synthesized the knowledge contained within his vast library of financial texts (which he will share with you if you choose to sign up). His concise teachings are essentially a rundown of the most effective and powerful strategies for maximizing your gains while minimizing exposure (and risk). In my first month of trading and testing the waters, I was pretty much break-even, which isn’t bad for someone that had never placed a trade in their life beforehand. In my second month, I am up 22% in three weeks. This is not a matter of luck; I work a full time job and have put in at least 20 hours per week scanning for set ups and studying the methods. John is a terrific teacher and offers continual support, both during and after market hours.

The $4,000 fee for his service is truly a gift if you have the motivation and discipline to stick with it. Would you pay Peyton Manning to teach you how to quarterback? Would you pay Larry Bird to teach you to shoot a basketball? This may sound like an exaggeration, but it’s not. Coaching by those athletes would also come with a disclaimer reading “does not guarantee results, but it sure as hell would increase your chances of success. John’s training is just like anything else; the more time you commit, the better you will become, but how far you go is ultimately up to you.

This system requires organization, discipline, and self-analysis more than anything else. If you are motivated to self-improve, apply for the program. This has been by far the best decision I have ever made. I am incredibly motivated and will not let this opportunity go to waste. Two months after training, I feel like my life is at the apex of an ascending triangle, ready to BTFO.
