    About Trevor 'ToeCracker' Crook:

    He's known as the Crocodile Dundee of direct response copywriters. It’s a title he's happy to have. Trevor often has people trying to impress him with their copy and the profits it's made them.

    Yet as soon as he sees their copy, he can instantly see where they are leaving money on the table. A quick “That’s not a profit! This is a profit” tweak . . . and they are making more money than they thought humanly possible.

    Over the last 12 years Trevor has mentored many copywriters across the globe.

    And many of them went on to become world class and A-List copywriters and work for companies such as Agora Financial.

    And he does it all while I live the International Lifestyle.

    Long before he got into copywriting and marketing . . . he was in the banking profession.

    Most of which was as a commercial lending manager.

    During his banking career he estimates he interviewed over 10,000 business owners, pulled apart in excess of 35,000 sets of financial statements over a 20 year banking career.

    This included 5 years as a self-employed commercial finance broker . . . brokering multi-million dollar deals for his clients between the greedy banks.

    Since 2001, his breakthrough advertising and marketing strategies have consistently helped his clients double, triple, even quadruple their business. At times . . . even more.

    Here’s what marketing legend Matt Furey said about Trevor...

    “Trevor Crook has a rare ability to find the financial leaks in any business that most great entrepreneurs cannot see. Once found, his powerful and insightful marketing methods quickly increase income while creating customer loyalty. If you want the 'straight-scoop' with zero fluff, then pay attention to everything Trevor teaches about copywriting and marketing. He is one of those rare marketers who can turn words into a magic elixir . . . from the stage or through his sensational copy. He has a knack for turning lemons into lemonade . . .”  – Matt Furey

Mike Is Super 🤩

Mike is a phenomenal and genuinely concerned Coach. He encouraged me to raise my professional fee. I went from $63.69 an hour to $100 an hour. The results were instantaneous.

He encourages you to work on your inner space to get the phenomenal transformation you want about worthiness.

Brave and authentic

What I love about listening to Mike - and the guests he's introduced me to - is his authenticity and bravery.

If you know the background to Mike's story you'll marvel - as I do - at how he got to where he is today without crashing and burning completely.

To come back from the kind of depths Mike found himself in and to claw your way up to the top again is one thing.

To then put your vulnerabilities and mistakes out there for all to see takes a special kind of person.

I don't think you can have a better moniker than "The Comeback Coach" - you get exactly this - a pathway back from your nightmares from someone who's lived them.

I can't quite believe you can listen to the wisdom and knowledge that shines from these pods for free.

There are now a lot of them - so you'd better get cracking.
