The difference between courses and programs is commitment.

Anyone can buy or sell a course— an info-product that’s a self-serve experience, not much different than producing a record for sale that potentially millions of people can consume.

The success rate on books, courses, and other formats is single digits– as few even complete the training– and then a fraction of these folks do the exercises necessary to achieve whatever result.

A program, however, has the hidden promise of results– like a college degree has the hidden promise of a job.
Thus, programs are courses that also have coaching, support, and other components beyond a series of videos you can play– even if it’s LightSpeed interactive videos.

We’ve sold millions of courses for Rosetta Stone to help people learn Spanish.
Most of these DVDs sit on the bookshelf, like all the other beautiful aspirational decorations, collecting dust for the one eventual day when we just might want to use it.

We’re happy to sell COURSES via LightSpeed– free and paid. The system has all the functionality necessary for the basics, much like Kajabi, LearnDash, Thinkific, and even GoHighLevel.

But a PROGRAM means we can’t accept a 2% success rate, as is normal for courses.
We would want to flip this into a 98% success rate with only a 2% fail rate.

People joining a program must be committed, qualified, and able to do what it takes to win– like what each of us has discussed about winning being the absence of not quitting.
And only upon this commitment, which is to be earned, not granted by default, are we willing to let people into any of our programs to invest in their success with our network, our time, and our money.  

The “turd in the punchbowl” is that course creators peddle their wares as if it were a PROGRAM.
But there’s no valid certification, implementation, accountability, support, or backing.

The way I closed one of our clients — when he was the one who attended my workshop and called me, not me calling him– was asking him if he was here just to make millions selling courses or if he wanted to actually help people succeed. The latter requires measurement, which none of his famous course-creating buddies are doing.

Working with Dennis has been a delightful experience. After meeting him in 2015 I got to collaborate with him on countless occasions. His understanding for state-of-the-art marketing, his implementation, and his leadership put him into the top 0.01% of marketers and mentors.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dennis for my podcast in 2021 and since then we have maintained a friendship that grows with each interaction. I have seen Dennis' devotion to his friends and clients firsthand, and our conversations often result in us talking about how we can provide more value to the people around us. He is someone whom I can ask questions on a technical level, and look to on a personal level. If you have any hesitancy about hiring him, get over yourself and do it!

Geez, where do I start recommending Dennis? First, he is an absolutely brilliant marketer who understands where marketing is today and where it's going tomorrow. He also has an incredible passion for the International Worker community. The lessons he has taught me from his almost 20 years of experience hiring International Workers have been immense. Most importantly though. Dennis Yu is someone who wants the absolute best for you and is willing to tell you the truth. Dennis sat with me at a point in my business where I was floundering but did not want to admit it. He asked some very straight forward questions to get me to admit my issues, highlighted the issues, and then helped me create a roadmap to success.
