7 key behaviors of High-Achievers as explained in the video from Dane Maxwell at The Foundation is a must read for anyone trying to be successful in life, business, or anything at all.
The Foundation is putting out some of the best free content I have found on the Internet.
Their content focuses on success in entrepreneurship as well as the building of a workshop for entrepreneurs. The Foundation’s goal is to guide students in creating a successful software company in 6 months or less by working just a few hours a day.
The 6 disk set includes a Jump Start DVD, Parent’s Workshop DVD, 7 audio CD’s, Workbook, “Bonus” audio CD.
The program teaches “tough love” parenting techniques. We feel that such techniques are sorely missed in today’s society, and for that reason, we whole-heatedly agree with a large portion of the program.
The program requires consistency from the parents, which may be challenging to more lenient parents. It also seems better suited for older children than much younger ones. One would certainly expect different techniques for a 5-year old than a 15-year old.
Affiliate Program – Fake Reviews
The Total Transformation system is popular with affiliate marketers. This means that others can post affiliate links to the program and be paid a commission. As their affiliate page states:
All you have to do is review our products and recommend them to people you know, or on your website.
This means that affiliate marketers who stand to profit from The Total Transformation are offering biased “reviews” in hopes of making money.
You will find websites that offer a glowing endorsement of the product with links to buy it at the end of the review. How objective can such an affiliate review really be?b …(this is too funny as it describes the entire Internet economy – people writing BS so they get paid)
Their Reviews: 48 Pages of Praise
When we first reviewed The Total Transformation in February 2013, we pointed out that the website offered over 50 pages of endorsementsof the product, with only 4 and 5 star reviews to be found.
We compared these reviews to the roughly 33% of reviews on Amazon that blasted the product with angry one-star assessments claiming that the product didn’t work or that customers received the “run around” when trying to get a refund.
A rep from The Total Transformation commented (below) that after reading this review, they changed their policy on presenting only positive reviews:
Thanks to the Waffles at Noon site we have seen our customer reviews page in a new light. We had originally (mistakenly) seen the reviews page as an opportunity to share the great success customers have had with our program- without seeing the value of sharing the occasional negative review.
Like any seller of a product or service; we enjoy sharing our great stories. But we too have occasional customers who are dissatisfied with their experience and critical in their review.
We now understand that it’s important for us to share these reviews as well, so parents considering our program will be as informed as possible.
Since then The Total Transformation website began including comments by unsatisfied customers, a move which we applaud. (even the new “bad” reviews are fake, fake, fake)
Other Reviews of The Total Transformation
An indication that a product is being fueled by fake reviews is when you see nothing but very good or very bad reviews side by side. Such glowing reviews alongside cries of “ripoff” or “waste of money” are exactly what you see with reviews on Amazon.com.
We looked at one “doctor” who offered a glowing review on Amazon, but when we took a look at her profile, it was loaded with ClickBank affiliate products and her profile photo was just a stock image. Suddenly this doctor’s glowing review wasn’t so impressive.
Many of the 5-star reviews on Amazon are by reviewers who only have a single review on the site, which happen to be for this product. This doesn’t always mean the review is fake, but it certainly raises eyebrows.
We strongly disagree with the affiliate marketing techniques and fake reviews used for The Total Transformation. We feel the product itself may be a good investment if a few criteria are met.
We believe the Total Transformation is best suited for teens and also for parents who have the ability to be strong, consistent, and follow through with a plan.
Our opinion is that inconsistent or lenient parents, or those with young children may not find the product to be of much value.
We would also like to point out that book stores have shelves lined with excellent parenting books for a fraction of the cost of The Total Transformation. If you are really indecisive, try watching some “tough love” videos on YouTube for free.

Here is what other people are saying about the Total Transformation Product:
Michio @ school-survival.net says: “This just sounds like another one of those programs that treat the child like the enemy. Here is another excerpt from “The Total Transformation” website:
“Like many parents of kids who act out, you may have been in family therapy with your child. And you’ve probably come out wondering why it’s still so difficult to get your child’s behavior to change, after you’ve spent all that time and money.
Here’s why: Traditional counseling and therapy focus on getting a child to talk about his “feelings” and building his self-esteem to change his behavior.
I believe there’s a better way.
In my experience, parents need tools they can use at home once the child comes out of that office and faces day-to-day, real-world challenges.
Behaviorally troubled kids lack the skills to solve the problems they encounter every day.
The Total Transformation® teaches you how to give your child more effective ways to solve his problems than fighting, screaming, annoying and defiance.
He’ll learn a simple system that will enable him to handle his problems appropriately and on his own, without acting out. A system that gets him…and you…better results.
There’s no psychobabble or high-brow theory. I’ll teach you exactly what to say and do to stop the arguments and get through to your kid, no matter how resistant he is to you. No matter how difficult the behavior has become at home and at school.
Did you not stop to think maybe there is a legitimate reason your child is “acting up” (whatever that means)? Sorry but parents can be dumb asses too.
Also, it’s hard being a kid in this industrialized western world. The real problem is that we live in a material society that is confusing and extremely imposing on even children that can hardly locate their own ass (they have kindergarten entrance exams in some places now LOL).
A typical child that grows up in western society today has unnecessary pressures, gets bombarded with consumerism, becomes increasingly estranged by their parents who are more than likely empty consumerists themselves, and lives according to innumerable, meaningless social images that confuse any sort of natural humanity left in them only to be replaced with vanity (success, money, empty relationships, cliques etc.).
I’ll go out on a limb and say behavioral problems are a combination of a child feeling alienated (usually from their parents or from the world in which they live in general) and/or confused with a lot of bullshit they picked up from school, their peers, TV advertisements, mass media etc.

The Total Transformation Product has attracted tons of affiliate marketers and in spite what others say that is how most companies run their affiliate programs. Rewarding those who best promote the product, or those who bullshit best get paid best. Too many affiliates can really water down the market-share for those like me who want high converting products. I joined this one so I could write about it and inform the readers. I think Ill take a pass on a full-on campaign for now, better to wait for some apocalyptic event like Mad-teen disease to break out…
