Standing beside someone and taking a photo should not impress anyone. Same goes for the car and the house. The one shot you are missing is the one where you are on a yacht with a bunch of girls in bikinis. One year Paul Martin sent us a Christmas card are you impressed?

Only gave this thread a quick glance but it seems like TTZ and those who pay him make their money by selling advertisements and the hope of making a quick buck "find out how i made a million dollars scratching my nutz click here!" and TTZ adds to that by doing vacation seminars on how to make a profitable ad heavy blog?

amirite? if so sounds like Anthony Espinoza on Roids

There's Timothy Skyes.

Tim's blog will make over $5 million this year. He now lives in Miami and drives a Lamborghini. But unlike me, he had to pay for his car.
Timothy Skyes was a millionaire by the time he was 21 with zero help from you. He also doesn't follow your method. Maybe I should pay him 12k instead of you?

Timothy Sykes?s Success | Real estate and Property

He thinks you are a fat lazy slob. :

He stated that his business model is different from John Chow’s. John Chow’s business model is affiliate and advertisement while Timothy Sykes focus on producing various educational products
and a fraud.

Mind you, I tried Chow’s business model—admittedly only half-heartedly because I have problems promoting all the frauds in finance–but it didn’t work for me…so I adapted.

Too good to be true. I'll admit I've been to these conferences referred by friends. They do a really good job in selling you in. 90% of the time they talk about how much money they've made and you can do it too. They make it sound like you can make money quick and easy. Its also amazing how many people buy into it at these events. Kind of like a cult atmosphere. Head guy made $$$$$$ this year and everyone starts clapping and cheering??? Just watch the people there and youll see what I mean. The only way you'll make it in their business is if you hold conferences like they do. Thats how they get a huge following. You wont make it selling their cheap products to family and friends. Thats my 2 cents.

What does he actually sell? I don't know. I'm actually not willing to share an e-mail address on any site to find out. I care that little about shit like this.

Tony Robbins made a fortune selling people on the idea that they could be more than they currently are. His money had NOTHING to do with their success, it was the guy that bought a book, or attended a seminar. What they did with it is their business.

Most people that are legitimately successful don't need to swing their dick around saying, "I'm all that" and they certainly don't need to add, "and you could be too". But he needs to draw attention. Because if no one believes that "they can be too" then they won't click the link, and if they don't click the link, then "I'm no longer all that".

And THAT is why you'll always be the showy douche(no offense) who needs to spout off about how great it is to be you, because you CAN't actually be the you you want to be without the legion of people supporting it.

Learn How To Make $30,000 in 7 Days!.


Doesn't this remind you of ads in the movie "Idiocracy"?


The way I see it, you're picking on completely ignorant people with big dreams of wealth. You're basically saying "Here, sign up and I'll teach you how to make money" but you yourself got rich simply by taking people's money to teach them how they could make money, but 99% won't.


That Timothy Sykes guy is already disingenuous with claiming to be a "best selling author" as seen below:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #491,431 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)


But being jewish I'm not surprised this guy is laughing all the way to the bank while fleecing the dumb goyim.

Yep, that's why I say it's even scummier than porn or drugs, at least when you sell someone porn or drugs they're getting what they want


This is selling someone false opportunity, taking their money, and then if they don't like your advice/product you can just call your customer fat and lazy for not getting rich like you did


John Chow is a mainstream hustler, digital snake oil dealer

Okay, so most people have come around that you are never going to get anywhere with this guy. Can we just close this thread now, I understand we are not in the automotive part of this site, but I hate to see anyone come to Revscene and get sucked into this non-sense.

At some point this is still a car forum, not a fucking affiliate site for John Chowder.

I'm sure if this section of the site wasnt filled with mostly crap, and more people actually came in hear and read this drivle you call a business, yes they would agree that this thread has no reason to be on this website.

This is a car enthusiats forum, and a vancouver lifestyle forum, as far as I can tell you are outside both of those demographics (you live in cali at least partially, and I don't see you modifying any cars or coming out to meets and interacting with us members...)

EDIT: Only semi car related post in the past like 100 or so posts is that retarded video of a rubber sock being placed over an exhaust pipe, a post that could have been put in our car videos thread, or any number of other places.

Ad hominems will not positively add to the impression you're presenting.

This thread currently has 140 posts, and all but Skinnypupp's opinions are negative. Skinnypupp's distinct bias also skews the validity of his opinions. Meme45's point is thus fair. This thread is a representative sample of RS, which shows the communities opinion of you and your business is overwhelming low.

Quite frankly, I wouldn't indulge your business whether or not I believed it was able to make me rich, because my morals prevent me from predatorily profiting on people with outrageous promises.

For the record, Oprah shook my hand for free. Not because she "place[s] no value on [her]self," as you suggested Manic does not, but because she's not arrogant and seeking to take advantage of people financially.

The sooner you get the fuck off RS, the better.

I've been on RS since 2002. Way longer than you. I'm not going anywhere. And this is the Off-Topic forum, which means I can talk about anything I want. If you think you and the people who posted in this thread represent the entire RS community, then you're not an Internet marketer.

I don't think I ever shared my opinion on Johns product in this thread. I'm just here laughing at the ridiculous hate going on. The only person who has been reasonable and skeptical is Parm. Almost everyone else is just slinging shit.

To be fair, anyone who was part of Revscene back in '02 was likely here because they were car enthusiasts. What the website was like back then is a far cry from how it is now. Back then it was an IC rival and focused almost exclusively on modifying cars.

Remember, people tend to change over the span of a decade and both priorities and hobbies change. Just because he doesn't post a lot of automotive content doesn't mean he's not allowed on Revscene. This website is now more of a lifestyle website that happens to have automotive content. Feel free to debate him on the merits of his line of work, but don't dare attack his worthiness of being on this site by his posts alone.

He also has lots of posts that have been archived, most of which are buried deep in the vB vault (well, not really, but they're there lol). Just because you don't see his automotive posts doesn't mean they didn't happen at some point in time.
