Thanks for your awesome book!
Do you recommend people to go through the full Six Step program before joining a weekend bootcamp?
Do you have any recommendation for bootcamps to do (ideally in Europe)?
Any plans to start doing Skype consultations again?October 20, 2019 at 8:18 pm #74209Eric DiscoKeymaster
> Do you recommend people to go through the full Six Step program before joining a weekend bootcamp?
Yes. Absolutely. I used to teach boot camps and stopped teaching them because 90% of the guys there were just trying to get over their approach anxiety. And then when they left the boot camp they were back to square one. All their anxiety came back.
Boot camps are good for two things: 1) to show you what is possible. You get to see guys do what you never thought was possible. 2) To learn new skills and improve on your skills.
A boot camp will be a thousand times more productive if you can already do some approaching. That way they can tell you how to do things differently. If you have a ton of anxiety when you do the bootcamp, you won’t learn very much. Your brain pretty much shuts down when you have anxiety. But if you have already been out approaching, you’ll probably pick up some good things if they guys know what they’re doing.
> Do you have any recommendation for bootcamps to do (ideally in Europe)?
I don’t. I’m just not on the scene right now when it comes to boot camps.
> Any plans to start doing Skype consultations again?
I might start again in a few months. I do enjoy coaching. Just wanted to step back and take a break from it.

I agree with Eric 100% on the bootcamps.
The European ones are mostly just marketing by PUA companies ……
The question is, do you have a lot of European women in your town ? If not, then spending time and money on a weekend bootcamp in Europe is of very limited use except for the tourism value….
Different culture, different city layout [old European cities are often pedestrian friendly, whereas in the US its mostly a car culture and layout]…..
Your AA plus the language barrier means that you wont actually do much…..
If you’re going for the anonymity thing, then a different city in the US might serve your purposes better…..say NYC, which has a lot of attractive, single women….
Eric is right….work on the AA…..
That takes a very long time …….its a rabbit hole of personal development……
Once you got that under some level of control, techniques and opening lines come easy…..and will feel natural because they will be congruent with your personality and world-view….October 21, 2019 at 7:55 pm #74216
Thanks for the feedback, Eric. Then I’ll continue with the program before considering doing a boot camp. I just progressed to Step 2 today. It was a bit challenging, as I felt the fear of looking like a creep, which probably means that I’m expanding my comfort zone. Tomorrow, it’ll hopefully feel a bit more natural.
Cartoox: I live in Europe, which is why I asked for boot camps here. I would love to do a boot camp in the US, but I don’t know when I’ll be able to travel over seas again. Did you go through the six step program yourself?October 21, 2019 at 8:44 pm #74217
One more thing, Eric: is reviewing your book on Amazon the only way to get ahold of the audio files these days?October 22, 2019 at 4:30 am #74219CartooxParticipant
oops – my apologies then, I thought you were based in the US……
I got coaching from Eric ( and Lee) in NYC a few years ago…..changed my game completely so I would highly recommend it….
