Is Tai Lopez a scam? I keep seeing this question over and over again and thought I would spend some time answering it. I don’t want this blog to become negative by answering if this person or that person are scammers but I see this one so much that I feel the need to answer it once and for all.
Here are some of the common reasons I see online:
He Doesn’t Own That Mansion?
I see a lot of people on forums and YouTube saying he doesn’t own the mansion he lives at and rents it and that shows that he is a fake. Even if he does rent the mansion his rent will be a minimum of $12,000 a month to rent something that big. Could someone who isn’t successful afford to pay that much per month to rent a mansion?
The Mansion Is CGI Using A Green Screen
I’m not even going to dignify this one with a response.
His Car Is Rented
Again do you know how much it costs to rent a Lamborghini? It’s not cheap. Even if he rents his cars that is a lot of money. The starting price for Lamborghini hire here in the UK is £356 + Tax per day. That works out be at least £10,680 per month to rent a car.
However I Wouldn’t Want His Life
He seems to have people around him 24/7. There’s constantly people at his house filming videos in his backyard. He reminds me of Floyd Mayweather (the boxer). Floyd Mayweather always has his entourage around him. They live at his house and are constantly telling him he is great and the champ. I get this vibe from the people that Tai surrounds himself with. I think it comes from an insecurity of not wanting to be alone and constantly needed people around you to ‘pump you up’.
I’m An Introvert
I’m naturally an introvert and would find it extremely exhausting to have people around me 24/7. I value my alone time and need my own space because being social is a muscle but it is very mentally draining being social for long periods of time when you are an introvert.
He has these attractive women around him (who presumably work for the modelling agency he owns). And he’s preaching all of these rules to live by if you want to be successful while they are walking around behind him in yoga pants. It just screams of over marketing yourself.
He’s trying to portray this perfect business man that never makes mistakes and things always go to plan. In a nutshell he wants you to believe he has this perfect life. This is what I was talking about in a previous post. This is a fabricated reality that doesn’t really exist. I’m sure he is very successful in his own right and wealthier than I will ever be so he doesn’t need to do this. It’s an ego thing about not wanting to show people who follow you that you don’t have all the answers and still make mistakes. Not wanting to show any vulnerability.
I think showing that you make mistakes and don’t have all the answers is a great way to show others that you are real and genuine. We are all human at the end of the day. Maybe one day he will realise that and start showing more of his true self. I don’t want to single him out for too much criticism however because he is not the only person who does this. Almost all big Internet Marketers do it. He just happens to have bought the most YouTube ads (“Here in my Garage”).
One of the main purposes of this blog is to show that you don’t have to be perfect to be successful. You just need to not give up and keep moving forward with making progress.
In closing this guy is definitely not a scam. Guys like Tim Ferris, Lewis Howes and Gary Vaynerchuk don’t turn up at your house to be interviewed if you are a scammer.
I’ll leave Brendan Mace (awesome name by the way) to finally explain why Tai Lopez is not a scammer. Thanks for reading.
