I came across this interesting piece of information recently that Scott Pape put together after speaking with the conman David Schirmer.
Below is the last paragraph of the article linked to above.
I rang Schirmer on his way home from that radio interview, and asked him about the seminar. 'Last year we attracted 340 people to our seminar, and took $5 million in ticket sales and (back of the room) information products' he said. 'With the help of the Secret we're expecting to more than double the attendance numbers this year'. It appears the Secret's spruikers have perfected another universal law - the law of extraction.
Let us first just start here with a little math. $5,000,000 divided by 340 attendees is equal to each person spending $14,705.88. My oh my, he seems to have stumbled across 340 of the most generous people that he could find in Melbourne, Australia. I would also make a suggestion here that noone could have spent $14,705.88 at this seminar even if they wanted to!!
So where does this leave Schirmer's statement of making $5,000,000 in one weekend? It leaves it right where most of everything else that spews out of his mouth ends up. On the huge pile of bullshit that he has produced through the constant stream of lies that is his life.
And he wonders why it is all starting to fall apart? "You reap what you sow", comes to mind.
