marty grunder's boot camp

I was wondering if anyone here has attended marty grunder's boot camp.
it's a 3 day seminar with half a dozen speakers that costs around $1500.

I did find several posts about people who liked seeing him speak at other events like GIE or other planet seminars etc.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Glenn

Let me get this straight...

I pay $1,500 to sit around and be lectured, and they call that Boot Camp?
omg... does that mean it involves mental torture?

Man, I'm going to create Free boot camp, come on in anytime!
Yup, train them and send them off to work, on my own yards that need servicing.
Keep on doing that until they can do 8+ yards / day, then they're graduated.
If someone turns out quality, that's an honor student.
I get my work done for free and they get educated, hands on LOL

I would like to go but he needs to schedule better. Who wants to go to the Midwest in Jan? Vegas, New Orleans, San Diego, Here, even Fla. and I might make the trip. Ohio would be great in the spring but he probably figures everyone will be too busy working.

Even if you are hearing the same message over again its good to go to those kinds of things just to get fired up about your business. If you have not been to one of those kinds of things they will certainly put money in your pocket.

Dude, you need to get a clue! I recommend you go, ya might just learn how to gross more than 20k per year. Suggestion #1. Stop wasting time posting useless drivel on this site! There, now you can double your income with all your new found free time....and I gave you that advice free of charge! BTW, what's up with with your link to the less than questionable sites that are on display there?
