If you look around, most herbal book and study guides cost about $500 per course, the Christopher schooling is like this and cost you well over $5,000.00 to get a MH which is worthless. The first school book teaches more about saving your life than any one book I know at the cheapest price. If accepted, this one book saves you hundreds of thousands in medical bills and adds at least 10 years of extra life.
To me, this book is worth about $5,000.00 and the study guide is priceless because anything to get a person to accept what this MD has to say about how he cured 63,000 patients with nothing more than orange juice is pretty good stuff. You learn to cure all with no drugs, no herbs and zero gimmics, maybe the book is worth $100,000.00, not sure, I have seen some Japanese herbalist charge $1,000,000.00 for his lifelong advice on health or $7,000,000.00 you can live with him and I can bet you all I have that you would live longer and happier if you only did what this one humble MD suggest.
You will really HATE all my schooling books after book 1, they all come with the study guide and may have dvd and cd, etc. also and the study guide must be filled out and returned and an assignment completed or school is done. The first schooling book was simple and kept low to at least get people's attention. ONLY 12 have purchased the studyguide and only 1 has filled it out. That is why I am in no hurry with future books, odds are less than a dozen number 3 books will be printed!
I could make it available on cd or as a download, but then it would be spread all over the world for free and few if any would get the point. At Christophers you had X amount of days to finish your study guide or be cancled, it was graded before you received a new book and study guide.
I have paid over $300 for sets of tapes, downloads from worthless russian scientist and purchased thousands of dollars of books and I would take the first school book over every book I own.
My number one reasponse I get is that I am smart enough to understand the book, no studyguide needed. I am guessing these types have never succeded in a 14 day orange juice fasting, odds are they didn't even try. Many never even read it, it does not make them feel comfortable. Most women HATE THE DAMD BOOK and REFUSE to believe one word about food and health, serious! I have seen older woman refuse to finish the book. I have many medical books that blame the cook for the death of the children and family and the cooks will not accept such things.
I agree with you, $100 is too much for the study guide, it should have came with the book for $500. I had planned on making a big discount to those that finished the study guide and assignment so the number 2 book would be much cheaper or even a discount on products, but no one has interest, so that went by the way side. The website owner didn't even advertize the study guide for sale, even knowing he would make 15%, his studyguide was for free and he even gave it away! It must really be a sad book!
The Christopher study guides were small compared to mind and watch out, the second study guide is so huge I haven't been able to even finish it. Maybe I should charge $1,000 for it. I once gave a seminar to an Amish group and a very old man stood up at the end and said he had traveled to many seminars in his lifetime and said my seminar was worth every bit of $500.00 per person and he encouraged every person to donate. I have never charged for a seminar and most likley never will, I gave the money back to them and asked that they give it to someone who is in need of it.
I have one man who has influence, he came from such a family and raised all his kids in the most expensive colleges in the world such as France, etc. He has been hooked on all my hand made products for 5 + years and resales them all, even created a website just for them. He has finally lowered his prices somewhat for the website, but for years, he sold my 16 ounce bottles for $74.95 each, even the Longevity Kit that cost $59.95 for 3 bottles, he would sell for $74.95 X 3. I asked him WHY?????????????????? He said his friends would be insulted if he only asked them $34.95 for such a HUGE bottle of herbs, they would think it was worthless if it was that cheap. he said no one sells 16 ounce bottles in health food stores.
I am use to dealing with poor Amish and after years of doing this, I feel my prices are pretty high. On the other hand, a man that makes 100X the $$$ I do a year, he thinks I am giving my products away.
To solve all of this, I simple state on every label, money back guarantee, return to place of purchase for money back. That way the poor or the rich can look and then send it back and believe me, I have had this happen. One lady took the box home, used a razor blade and slit the box, took out the book and read it, then carefully inserted the book back in the box and taped it, she then returned to the mail office one day and pretended she just got this box and didn't want it and said return it to the sender and got away with it, that way she didn't even have to pay for return postage.
For now the study guide is only an option, after I have a couple books out, it will be a set and must be filled out and returned with proper assignment.
