>> Has anyone had any dealings with Mark Ress, taken his seminars, or had
>> your money refunded?
I had dealings with Mark Ress for the first time last night! I received an email (I must have signed up at some time with him, even tho I had never read any of his mails) concerning a live webinar he was hosting and since I didnt have anything else to do, I logged in.
From the first minute, I knew this was not your ordinary webinar. Mark was on camera in a very LOUD orange shirt and had salsa music going and was rocking out!
It was the most incredible thing I had ever seen! But it got better....wayyyy better!
I didn't know any1 so I stayed mostly quiet and listened as both he and some of his more advanced students offered up some of the most ingenious (and honest) ways to do everything online from get busloads of traffic to your website, to some of the best businesses out there to start with in affiliate marketing, and even some great pointers on how to navigate your way thru the social 2.0 websites!
I mean they named names and called out the liars. lol
It was so exciting...so alive, I couldn't help but join in. And when I did, I was welcomed just as if they had all known me for ages.
There were no 'RONG' questions, there was no condemnation for my sloppy traffic practices ( which I gladly shared in return for the helpful instructions I received)...there was just such a feeling of love and acceptance...and a whole lotta money-making going on!
I was particularly amazed at how comfortable Mark was with that HUGE wad of money he had in his hands and was waving around. Imagine my surprise when he started giving it away. Yep, giving away his money to all that took the time to come and be a part of this great show!
He had a name for it but I can't remember it, the show, that is. But back to the money. He wasn't just being a show-off, he wasn't just bragging about what he had. He was willingly and honestly giving this money away to (sometimes) perfect strangers. While all the time, sharing his knowledge greely with any1 who asked of him.
He said he was, "Blessing folks". Now that sounds kinda nonsecular to me, but then I remembered...people with money can do whatever they want with it. And all I can say is God bless those who share it with me. lol
Then, about an hour and a half into the show, the REALLY strange stuff began to happen.
Mark got a heckler. lol This guy was merciless, altho, it was kinda obvious that he had no more idea who mark ress was than I did. He taunted and he teased...He cajoled and he riled...but Mark did 2 things that put out his fire in a matter of minutes.
He stood like a true man and stated his case. He told the man who he was and exactly what he stood for, both in life and in his business. He said he was an honorable man, a good husband, and a loving father...and he was not apologizing for having all those great things in his life PLUS a lotta money!
Then he did something kinda amazing...he actually challenged the guy. He told him that he would give him a FREE 1-hour one-on-one consultation (probably worth ($1200)if he would just reveal himself and come clean about his heckling motives.
The guy declined...but then out of the blue...this guy told him to give the consultation to ME!!!!! And Mark agreed!
Up until this point, I was excited and just happy to be there...when that happened, I think I flat-out lost a little piece of my mind! lol
And after that, it just got UNBELIEVABLE! Many, many of Mark's students and visiting millionares in their own right started blessing people with money and gifts - some worth over $1400.00. One guy Paypal'd money to 4 people on the spot - he just picked them at random! It was the most unbelievable night!
So, thats how I first met Mark Ress, in a loud orange shirt, rockin to salsa, giving away fistfuls of money, and inspiring others to do the same.
Yeah, whatever he's on, I want some!
But don't take my word for it, go to his website and find out when his next webinar jumps off...you would have to be a complete (complete and total dummy) to miss it!
As of this date (Sat, Dec 6, 2008) I have no affiliations what-so-ever with Mark Ress, but I plan to change that very soon!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
