I attended Stuart Zadel’s Think and Grow Rich seminar in Adelaide recently and I felt that a review was necessary. This is my experience for first-timers.
Stuart Zadel’s Property Education
A lot of people in Australia are fighting to get ahead. This is especially true given the current economic climate and a looming recession.
Stuart comes along with a solution, but is he the right person for you?
While most people in Australia may reap financial rewards through Stuart Zadels programs, most people aren’t willing to take action to even make the dream a reality.
Always looking for the hack, shortcut or yet another shiny object. “How can I make money in the next few weeks?!”
It’s not a good place to be in. I should know – I used to be this very person! 😬
For this reason, there are dozens who are happy to call Stuart Zadel dodgy or a scammer. It’s true that those who sign up to the gym and don’t take action will never achieve the results that they desire.
It’s not the fault of the gym, nor will this be the fault of Stuart himself, if you don’t take action with the tools that he’s providing.
The Think and Grow Rich conference
This was the original name for his conferences starting in circa 2012.
His business model revolved around holding seminars where numerous property and wealth creation strategies are offered. Sometimes things feel right and sometimes they don’t quite vibe. Ultimately, you’ll find a presenter the clicks with you and your direction in life.
You can feel this when they speak on their subject matter, with their primary focus towards selling their education based on results. That said, there’s some good material such as
Cherie Barber’s course that can really assist a beginner renovator.
Edit: Cherie Barber is no longer with Stuart Zadel (she’s still a great choice!) and has been replaced by Naomi Findlay.
Strategies that Stuart Zadel teaches
Some of these strategies that Zadel Property Education talks about at Think and Grow Rich could be perceived as getting rich fast. I feel that way because, while the strategies are valid, the strategies aren’t exactly as easy as they’re perceived to be.
The average everyday person only later realizes how much work is required to complete all the steps needed to see things through to completion, as well as having a long term view.
You’ll find the following topics, and likely more:
- Wealth through property investing and renovations
- Public speaking and personal development
- Creating a passive or semi-passive income online
- Protecting your wealth through strategic legal strategies
Stuart doesn’t talk as much about the risks and potential downsides of these strategies. This can undermine the credibility of Zadel Property Education and result in claims of a scam, though his company is today far from this.
(I mean really, Stuart has come along way since the earlier wild wild west days of TGR Education).
The responsibility does fall mostly on the student to do his or her own research. It’s good that you found your way to my blog!
I feel the sales techniques that Stuart uses, including artificial valuations and the need to purchase on the day, can certainly turn some people off. I mean – they did turn me off and as such, I was reluctant to purchase a course…but ultimately happy I did. The payoff has been immense. 🙂
And for the record, I’ve purchased an affiliate marketing and Amazon FBA course that Stuart has promoted where I’ve built solid and dependable income streams but this has been years in the making. 😐 It’s been a slowwww climb to the top but ultimately glad I took the plunge.
To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of sales techniques in seminars through using a perception of scarcity and the fear of missing out arises. It’s wise to leave the credit card at home so you’re able to make a conscious and informed decision.
In my experience, whatever you choose requires work and commitment, and education is just one facet of the bigger piece. You see, buying the program is the easiest part and the what separates the winners from the stragglers is their personal commitment over the next 3 to 5 years and work ethic to get to the finish line.
Should you go to a Stuart Zadel seminar?
On a positive note, YES! I would encourage everyone to attend one of his weekend seminars. These are held regularly in capital cities across Australia as well as online webinars.
Avoid purchasing a course during the first seminar you attend, since he does these at least once a year and you won’t miss out. Instead take the free advice, books and CDs home with you or if you’re on the webinar, take notes.
Following this, discover the strategy that works for you and your personality. Ask yourself “Is this something I’m truly committed to sticking with for the long term?” because most people don’t stop and think in moments of euphoria.
If it feels right, then I’d recommend you jump on board with a program. If you don’t buy on the day then you can re-attend a seminar or webinar later and purchase one of his courses that bests fit the direction of your life. It’s not just the course but being apart of a community that will move the needle for you. 🙏
Today I’m apart of multiple communities and the friendships are as valuable as the home study education and boot camps themselves. Surround yourself with the progressive types as trust me, it really moves the needle!
In a nutshell
Is Stuart Zadel’s event still worth attending? Yes.
Does he have a better reputation in 2020? Definitely.
(Years ago when I first attended Stuart was just starting off and wasn’t so refined, but today it’s so much more authentic).
Can you learn some stuff for free at the event? Heaps.
Will you meet real entrepreneurs there? Nup, not really as it’s more a place for property investors and those struggling to find their life path to mingle.
Are his students rich and successful? Nup, most aren’t. They are simply trying to get ahead through alternative strategies. ✌️Well done for them for having a fair go.
Is there a shortcut to riches? Absolutely not. Everything is ultimately a grind in my experience.
(Yeah…I guess I’m a bit jaded after all these years in the trenches of business building…)
I encourage many to invest in their personal development and strive to get ahead. Stuart can be a very good choice. Through my journey, I’ve found that taking action and doing what’s hard as the secret to success.
Ultimately, we write our own chapter in life.
