Today, I have a bonus episode that I just couldn’t keep to myself. I felt the urgency to share this story with you, in the hopes that it resonates and brings you comfort.

Picture this: you’ve been conned, scammed, and left feeling utterly betrayed. It’s a situation we don’t often talk about, but trust me, you’re not alone. I recently experienced a massive con myself, and when I opened up about it, I discovered that others had fallen victim to the same person. It got me thinking about the power of sharing our stories and supporting each other through tough times.

Let’s face it, scammers have a knack for taking advantage of our trust and vulnerability. Instead of blaming ourselves, let’s reframe the narrative. We’re not the problem here; we made a bad investment. And hey, who among us hasn’t made a bad investment? We’re all human, after all.

I hired this guy, a fellow coach, with high hopes and a significant investment. He seemed like the real deal, with impressive testimonials from celebrities and all. But as time went on, I began to realize that he couldn’t deliver on his promises. The PR team he boasted about turned out to be non-existent, and the whole experience felt like a massive letdown.

The breaking point came when I mustered up the courage to reach out to one of his celebrity clients, only to discover that the testimonial he used was completely fake. Can you imagine the audacity? It was a realization that hit me like a ton of bricks. All those red flags and doubts I had pushed aside suddenly became glaringly obvious.

Through commiserating with others who had worked with him, I learned that I wasn’t alone. We were all victims of his gaslighting, lack of integrity, and evasive behavior. It’s disheartening to know that people like him can get away with scamming others, leaving us feeling ashamed and vulnerable.

But here’s the thing – we’re not alone. If you’ve been conned or scammed before, I want you to know that I see you, I feel you, and I’m here for you. Don’t let shame consume you; share your story, find solace in community, and together, let’s stand against these scammers.

By building a community of support, we can protect ourselves and others from falling into their traps. And for those of you who haven’t been conned, be vigilant, trust your gut, and don’t hesitate to share any resources or podcasts that delve into white-collar crimes and scams.
