I didn't get the job offer..
I couldn't believe it.
I'd gotten fantastic reviews from the people I worked with.
I’d spent countless nights in the office until 2 or 3 in the morning, hammering away at my keyboard, my bloodshot eyes squinting into the glow of my computer screen.
Years of work, busting my ass to get in the door, keeping my head down and grinding for months as an intern, and it was all gone.
I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. I was humiliated and ashamed.
It was fall of the Great Financial Crisis and I was back to recruiting for a job in the worst job market in history.
All because I didn't suck up to the right people.
I'd been robbed, mistreated, f*$ked.
Or so I thought...
Four years later, I was working a better job, spending less time in the office, and being paid 2.5x the money to do it!
I hadn't become more qualified, and I hadn't gotten smarter.
But one thing had changed.
I had learned a universal truth that most people hide from themselves...
"Wow, that was incredible! Where did you train?"
Confused by the question, I cock my head a bit to the side and ask, "What do you mean?"
"That speech! I'm a professional speaking coach. I train speakers from all over the country. That was impressive. Where did you learn?"
At that moment, Vivian came running over to give me one of her big bear hugs and a kiss. All I could do was smile as he tried not to stare at her. I'd seen her have that effect on men before.
In the absurdity of that moment, I had to laugh.
How had a normal guy, voted shyest person in his graduating class in high school, come to be a leading speaker at one of New York City's biggest personal development meetups?
All I could do was savor the moment and soak it in.
I've been fortunate enough to have many more moments like that since.
Walking into my old boss's office at my Washington D.C. based consulting company to tell him I was moving to New York City, and walking out 30 minutes later with a remote work arrangement and an 80% raise.
Watching Ben run after a beautiful woman he saw walking by us in the street, and smiling as I heard the news from my roommates later that night that she was a famous television star, and that they were going on a date together that same night.
Inspiring four people to trust their lives to me, quit their jobs or drop out of college, leave their life behind in New York City, and move with me to Rio de Janeiro (including one I'd only met two weeks prior!)
But who cares about me? I'm writing this for YOU.
If you’re seeing this page right now, it means you're the type of person who doesn’t want to settle. You want to give yourself the best life possible.
I started Charisma On Command so you could have moments like these as well.
There's an important truth in this world that your parents probably didn't tell you when you were growing up
That your teachers never taught you, and that truthfully you probably don't want to know.
You've been tricked into thinking hard work is what determines success.
That the key to wealth and riches, diamonds and sports cars, is to put in your time and do a good job.
That as long as you're a good person, your dream partner will just come walking into your life one day, because that's what you deserve.
I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, you've been sold a lie.
Hollywood movies, school, even your parents have accidentally tricked you into believing the world rewards those who put their head down, work hard, and deserve to be rewarded.
But it doesn't.
That's why you see people who aren't smarter than you getting the jobs that you want (and the money that goes with it!)
That's why you see people who aren't better than you getting the dates that you want.
And that's why despite doing all the things you've been told you should do, you haven't been able to get the life you want and dream of.
It isn't just what you know, it's who you know. And it isn't just what you do, it's what others are willing to do FOR you.
If you aren't charismatic, you're going to lose out in life to folks that don't deserve to be beating you. But they will beat you. Again and again.
That's what we learned when Ben didn't get that job offer six years ago.
It isn't fair, but deep down we all know that this is how the world works.
THAT is why I created Charisma University
Because it's the most important thing in your life. This isn't just about your social life. This bleeds into everything.
What would life be like if you had the tools to "turn it on" and wow any room at a moment's notice?
I decided to create Charisma University after it became clear to me that:
Can you think of a time recently yourself when you felt like this?
When you saw someone you wanted to connect with but you didn't even try...
When you hesitated and you let an opportunity pass you by
Maybe it's the beautiful stunner who made your heart beat harder when you saw them walk by.
Maybe it's a potential mentor, someone you look up to, someone who can guide you and inspire you to achieve the kind of massive success they've had in their own lives.
You want to talk to them. But you hesitate, and a tiny voice in your head throws you off. Or worse, you DO try, and after a few minutes of terrible, forced conversation, they excuse themselves to get away.
If you've ever been at a conference or a networking event, seen someone successful you wanted to talk to and done nothing about it, you are not alone. If you've ever been at a coffee shop or walking down the street, seen someone that made your head turn and done nothing but watch them walk away, you are not alone.
We've all been there. Every single person I've ever met has been there.
And you know what, we've missed out on life-changing opportunities and people that could have massively enhanced our lives.
You know what's different? What's special? The person that does something about it.
The person who goes up shoulders back, head held high, and knows exactly what to say to leave that person thinking "holy cow, I need to see them again." Now THAT is rare.
Are you ready to be that person?
"When I read on your website that it would change my life in less than a month, I was skeptical to say the least. But here we are less than a month in and I already feel like these superpowers that are developing! I'm in control and I love that!"
"With Charisma University, every situation and every person, even your super powered boss’s boss becomes an opportunity to unlock and be yourself/have fun. When you’re living with charisma, LIFE is everywhere. You’re not on autopilot anymore. It is so much more fun – it’s just a huge positive impact on your life!"
Think it sounds too good to be true? Just read on. Because as you'll see at the end, I'm GUARANTEEING you it's very, very real.
I've seen my life grow from something I was really dissatisfied with to a living dream. And along the way, I've noticed this simple universal truth again and again...
Your Relationships In Life Are Everything
Your success in business, your success with dating, your very happiness comes down to the quality of the relationships in your life and your ability to create amazing new ones on command.
Being able to create amazing relationships with the mentors you admire, the jaw-dropping special someone you want to date, that is the kind of super power that instantly changes your life.
And if you're tired of feeling like you can do better and you deserve more, then this might be the most important page you ever read, because I'm going to show you how to create the relationships, mentorships, and life you've always dreamed of.
Welcome To Charisma University
Growing up, I got top marks in school, played pickup sports, and had a close group of friends. But in front of the right girl or the right room full of people, my palms would start to sweat, my throat would get tight, and I'd start overthinking everything.
You guys have all heard the story before. I even won Most Likely To Break Out Of His Shell in high school. I felt like a normal dude, but apparently I was "the shy guy."
One day a flip switched in my head and I decided enough was enough.
So I started studying the science of charisma. And like Neo, I started to see the Matrix.
I got to a level of unconscious competence where everything started to come naturally. I got to the point where I could flip a switch and feel "on", no matter who was around or what the situation was.
It became easy to start conversations with anyone I saw. I finally stopped thinking "I want to talk to that person...but what should I say?? How do I know it'll go well??"
It felt like a superpower.
Since then, my co-founder Ben and I have spoken at board meetings for billion dollar businesses.
Gone to entrepreneur masterminds with some of the best under 30 entrepreneurs on the planet and left with lifelong connections.
And when I see a beautiful woman I’d like to get to know, whether it's in the club, on the street, in the store, it doesn't matter - I know I can make an incredible impression.
Most importantly, you can do it too. Because I'm not special.
All of this is learnable. In fact, once you have it all laid out in front of you in our step-by-step training, it's simple. It'll become habit. You'll be able to turn it on without even thinking about it.
And once you master these fundamental tools, you'll be able to do things you once thought impossible.
"I've tried so many other things, Toastmasters, building a social circle, playing sports. None of it gave me what I was looking for.
I always knew that in the right context, if I could just get 20 minutes to connect with someone, anyone, I knew they would want to see me again.
Working with Ben and Charlie gave me what I needed, the ability to get those first 20 minutes whenever I want with whoever I want. It feels amazing!"
"I was honestly a little skeptical at first, but to date my investment in Charisma University has shown extremely positive results in my life.
Within 6 weeks of starting CU I actually got a great job that I love, started enjoying an incredible new social life, and most importantly, I now consistently feel and exude genuine confidence."
You're probably asking yourself right now, what exactly IS Charisma University?

You'll also get an actionable, step-by-step guide so that you know how to integrate everything you learn into your daily life. You'll basically have the exact formula to learn Charisma On Command.
You'll know exactly where you are and what to do to improve.

(There's more info on the guarantee below. I made it as absurd as possible because I want Charisma University to be a real no-brainer for you)
And Charisma University isn't just access to 10 hours of the best video content we've ever seen on the topic of charisma. It's a lifetime membership to a constantly growing university where the curriculum is set by YOU.
That means any other video courses we create for Charisma University–the contents of which you’ll decide–you get access to them free. Forever!
What's Inside Charisma University
Charisma University is broken into 6 video modules that are designed to get you inspiring and impressing everyone you meet. You can go through the modules at the recommended pace of one per week, completing the daily action guide each day of the workweek, or go through the program at your own pace.
The daily action videos take just a few minutes to watch and anywhere from 2 - 20 minutes to implement. It is all about taking small, concrete steps every day so that after 6 weeks, you have made exuding charisma a habit.
Inside the membership site, you'll have access to a 10+ hour (and growing) video library created to lay out exactly what you need to know and what you need to do to become next level charismatic.
You'll also get access to the Charisma University forums where you can share triumphs, questions, and get personalized feedback from me and Ben on your daily charisma exercises.
BONUS VIDEO CONTENT
Charisma University is our flagship product and we plan on adding more to it. Based on student requests, we already have added the bonuses above, daily action guides, and worksheets to simplify some of the at-home exercises. When you join, you are locked in to receive everything that ever comes with Charisma University in the future. Even if the price goes up (which it will).
How do I become a member of Charisma University?
To cover all of this charismatic goodness in our private coaching program takes 3 months and a $6,000 investment.
Is our coaching program way, way more valuable than $6,000? Hell yes! Last year I had a coaching client go through just the material in Module 1 (First Impressions), Module 2 (Confidence), and the Charismatic Recruiting techniques, and he earned a promotion within just two months of starting the program! But that doesn’t make it any more affordable if you don’t have enough cash in the bank.
Now you can’t even buy the modules individually. And even if you could, we wouldn’t want that.
We don't just want to sell a bunch of random videos. We want to create a community! We want to offer step-by-step guidance. And we want to guarantee results.
That's why we bundled all that content together and combined it with a daily step-by-step system AND a community forum.
You can get Charisma University through our website for just $597!
That's 90% off what it would cost to cover the same amount in private coaching, and it comes with a community of people to answer any questions you have (including Ben and I), plus neverending instant access to anything we add to Charisma University.
We know there are people who want the impact of coaching, but can't afford the price tag…
So we're offering Charisma University in affordable monthly payments. That way, you can try it without having to spend the full price of the course. Get it for just 6 monthly payments of $99!
Yep, that's just $99 today to unlock the entirety of Charisma University.
Or if you want to pay all at once, you can do that for $597.
Seemed like a fair solution to us :)
So if you know that Charisma University is right for you and you're ready to commit to this, there's never going to be a better time than right now.

Because I want you to know just how confident Ben and I are about this program...
If by the end of Charisma University, this isn't an obviously fantastic investment, all you have to do is let me know within 60 days of purchasing and I'll refund 100% of your purchase.
You don't need to explain.
You don't have to convince me.

"Frequently Asked Questions"
Emphatically YES. I know this from personal experience, and from watching close to a hundred clients transform their lives.
Charisma is not like eye color. The idea that you are either born with it or you're not is a destructive myth created by people who want to justify their own deficiencies. Charisma is a skill.
No different than playing the guitar or riding a bike, charisma can be learned. The biggest difference is how little time it takes to become great at it.
Charisma University was NOT created for everybody. This is not an instant fix, magic pill type of program. It is not for the lazy.
I have worked with men and women ages 20-43, of all races except Native American, from every continent except for Africa and Antartica. There is no such thing as being too short or too tall for charisma. The two things you really need are strong desire to improve and the ability to push your comfort zone.
If you truly want it, you'll put the time in. You'll watch 30 minutes a day, you'll do the daily habit exercises, and you'll watch magic happen in your life.
So the two easiest ways to know if this is right for you:
There's a ton of new content: techniques, tactics, and exercises that aren't available elsewhere.
More importantly, it gives you a step-by-step structure to implement what you learn and turn knowledge into habit. And it gives you a time frame (6 weeks) that you know you'll start seeing massive improvements in, instead of dipping and dabbling and dealing with slow growth and extended plateaus.
Perhaps most importantly of all, it gives you a community to push you and peers to grow with and learn from. Since Ben and I are a part of that community, it also gives you direct access to us for any questions you can't find answers to.
Oh yeah, and here's the truth: the simple act of investing financially makes for better results. I wish I could deliver the same success rates through books, but it is just a truth of human psychology. If you invest financially, you signify to yourself that you are serious about growth. You follow through where you might have let it slide.
We thought about leaving CU as a set of videos with incredible content and letting people figure it out from there. But then we thought better of it. Now you get a step-by-step daily structure that will guide you with integration actions every day, a community you can use to hold you accountable, and direct access to Ben and I on the forums for all your questions.
That combination has been designed specifically to guarantee you don't just learn about charisma but live it every day.
If you go through Charisma University and you don't think it is obviously worth your time and money, get your money back. Simple as that.
I'm not interested in your money if this doesn't have a huge positive impact on your life and I work hard on the content and in the forums to make sure we over deliver. But, if you decide it isn't for you, email me and I'll get you all of your money back. I'll eat the credit card processing fees.
I want this to be a no-brainer, the best way you can invest your money - if it isn't just email me and get your money back.
