"I’ve done Tony Robbins Unlimited Power (twice) and I’ve done Oprah Live… I’ve done all sorts of these types of programs. And I’m telling you that I’ve never gotten such big results from such a short session. It was just an hour, but a few days after the session… a client tried to haggle with me, [so] I applied…the “Red Sole” principle that Michelle taught and was able to maintain my price point and have the prospect “get” my value.
