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.

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!
