A Nazi war tactic turned into a foolproof way to get more clients

Let’s start by agreeing that Nazis are bad.

Okay? No need to send me your pearl-clutching emails that I’m somehow condoning Nazism or some other childish s***. I firmly disavows all Nazis… mkay? Still, I remember studying them in school.

Specifically, the war tactics they used.

Which, for the time, were revolutionary.

We even studied them when I was in the military. When a previously downtrodden nation suddenly rises up and takes over an entire continent that quickly… you might want to pay attention.

Anyway, that’s where I discovered a unique tactic for wow-ing new clients.

Turning them into zealots…

And creating the kind of word-of-mouth that leads to clients just showing up in your inbox — based on referrals and repeat business. Even works with regular j-o-bees. To leave clients (or bosses) dumbfounded.

And willing to do almost anything to keep you around.

Case in point..

I have a client I’ve been with for over 10 years — and I’m still riding the wave of the first impression I created with them using this tactic. I’ve even had some s***bag years… where I wasn’t all that productive for them.

But, they’ve kept me on retainer the entire time.

Based largely on this tactic.

Even taught it to my little bro. And he’s used it to wiggle his way onto projects with Amazon, Google, Nike, Office Depot and dozens of other mega-corporations.

Of course, there’s no evil required.

It’s not anything shady or underhanded. In fact, clients love you for it. It’s kinda the whole point. Anyway, this is something I teach in my Ascension Matrix course… to help you “ascend beyond” freelancing as quickly as possible.

Create more leverage in your business.

And create true “eff you, I do what I want when I want” freedom.

If your goal in life is NOT to spend 16 hours a day chained to your desk, glad-handing clients, laughing at all their stupid jokes… then this course may be just what you need. Of course, that’s on you to figure out…

But, the course is up on Skillshare.

Where you can get access for essentially free.

If you use this link: https://myjohn.us/ascend… you’ll get access to an exclusive 1-month trial of Skillshare (the normal trial is just 7 days) — where you get unfettered access to all 30,000+ courses on the site.

Every course, lesson, PDF, download, etc.

No restrictions…

And no obligations.

And if you cancel before the month is up, you never pay a penny. So, you can get access to the Ascension Matrix for essentially free. Some of you weirdos… :D… prefer to just give me your Ulysses S. Grants…

Which hey… coolio with me.

But, if you prefer to save yours, this is a good option. That said, I’ll be taking the course OFF Skillshare at the end of the month, so you’ll want to jump on this quick — especially considering it’s a 4-hour course.

So, you’ll want some time to get through it.

Anyway, on you to manage.

P.S. For patrons, you’ve had early access to the course already. You can find it on my Patreon page here: https://myjohn.us/patreon

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
