Perhaps if you've been living on another planet, or if you had the misfortune of being required to "take the short bus to school," then the Jeff Paul "system" might be attractive to you.
Otherwise, all Jeff Paul is selling in his $29.95 "Making Money in your Underwear" package are simple marketing ideas that one might find any high school level course about business.
At the risk of sounding like an educated snob, I have to remark that the overwhelming number of grammatical mistakes and typos in each of his "books" (each is approximately 50 pages in total length) exponentially increases my dissatisfaction and skepticism.
Some of the "books" that come with the package are nothing more than directories of direct-mail fulfillment companies, mailing list companies, and other reference material that could easily be obtained at a local library or perhaps the internet.
A frequently used term in much of the texts is "secret-this" or "secret-that." I have become so skeptical of the use of the word "secret" in biz-op programs, and Jeff Paul liberally applies the word to everything (how secret can it be if the concept is being shared with me and every other paying customer).
Another ploy that Jeff uses, but is also shared by so many other biz-op programs, is the emotional appeal that is created by stories of how his "secrets" have allowed him to spend most of his time fishing, boating, being with children, etc. These types of emotional hot-buttons are spread throughout the texts, where more 'meat' and substance should prevail instead.
However, it is these dreamy stories of success and "making (easy) money in your underwear" that sell the package to desparate people yearning for any sort of method to escape an otherwise dismal experience of life. This is pure crack for the biz-op addict dreaming of easy returns with little effort.
On the positive side, I will likely incorporate tidbits from his texts, here and there in my current business. However, isn't that the way life is anyhow? Don't we all take ideas from many different sources, that which we can utilize, and leave the rest? Unfortunately, for those who are looking for, or are too stupid to create on their own, a complete, turn-key business plan, one will not find it in this package from Jeff Paul.
Fortunately, I only spent $29.95. I feel very sorry for those who have been taken for so much more.
