This past week, we had a student who traveled literally from the other side of the planet to get coaching from our coach, Fadeaway, in Los Angeles.
After the coaching session wrapped up, the student was quick to email us his review of the coaching session.
Check it out.
Since I'm not yet on the 30/30 forums yet, I wanted to write in a word for Fade and for the fantastic work he's done for me over the last couple of days.
I have one word to describe him and that is 'Unreal', and I use that word for many reasons. Fade didn't just teach me the basics and go through stuff. Considering that this was my very first time, he went the extra yard to make sure I internalized everything and not just teaching principles on pickup, but on my life as well.
As you very well know, I was only supposed to be with him for 2 days and while my cold approaches and coaching went well on the first day, my second day turned out into an absolute disaster. We started off with the social freedom exercises on day 2 and though I got through them, it left me so overwhelmed and drained off my energy that I completely messed up all my approaches for the rest of the night.
I was terribly distraught and angry with myself for having wasted my last day with fade that way and was contemplating how do I pick myself up from here on. But Fade had other plans for me and he pretty much 'volunteered' to spend time with me for an extra day just to make sure that I got the concepts fixed before I leave. I was and I still remain very humbled and privileged for Fade to do that for me, considering that he has such a busy life with so much going on right now.
On our last night, Fade stopped being a coach and turned into my friend and my wingman. He threw out every opener that I was trying to use and just asked me to say 'HI' and said that's all you need. He drilled into me that ultimately it is all about being congruent with who I am and how I feel.
So there it was, No Fancy Openers, No Tactics, No Structure, No DHV..just plain and simple approaching women with intent and having a normal conversation, and needless to say, this was the best night ever. I was so confident with approaching that I had a couple of instant make outs on the street and almost pulled 2 hot actresses home but fade only prevented from going all the way since the last day was about me blowing my mind to just realize how much is possible by just being normal.
Right now I'm at the airport and waiting for my flight and I'm feeling that this was the best decision I have ever made to travel halfway across the world and 'investing' all my savings into meeting with Fade. It truly is hard to find someone who truly and genuinely cares about someone else's success without expecting anything in return. I want to believe all your coaches are as dedicated as Fade. He truly is one hell of a guy and it's coaching and dedication such as this that gets the word spread out that you guys are pretty much the best out there.
Having said that, I will be recommending Brad P. and more importantly Fade as a coach to anyone who wants to take pickup coaching seriously. I'm already looking forward to my next trip to US 6 months down the lane to work with Fade again.
Good luck and keep up the great work.
