Mccall JoneS

McCall constantly exposes the giant hole in video marketing that she used to “skip the line” in business, that you can use too. She used the secrets she gives her clients to create a business, train thousands of entrepreneurs, speak on the Funnel Hacking Live Stage, and share the stage with Tony Robbins and Russell Brunson all in 16 months.

It’s called Charisma Hacking - it’s the secret to becoming instantly likable, not looking stupid on camera, and creating high-converting webinars, video ads, sales videos, live streams and social media videos. She also promises to save you from the most toxic, self-sabotaging, time-wasting advice that has caused 95% of marketers to create podcasts, social media content and webinars that no one cares about.

The secret to how Charisma Hacking has helped different entrepreneurs increase their YouTube watch time by 242%, 12x their Facebook ad CTR, and triple their revenue, is that the Charisma Hacking system adapts to the entrepreneur’s personality. We’ve cracked the code on how any entrepreneur can amplify the best parts of themselves to build a rabid fan base, regardless of whether they are as intense as Gary Vee, nurturing as Brene Brown, or energetic as Russell Brunson.


For a long time in my life, I would win for a bit, then lose again. It was an exhausting, frustrating roller coaster. My personal life, my business was not what I wanted or where I wanted it to be. I had lots of goals, I just couldn't quite get there. Speakers and business leaders I followed (and still greatly respect) seemed to have all the answers, but I still struggled. I needed something more, but I didn't know what.

In business, I was successful, often, in spite of myself. Looking back, my journey as an entrepreneur started in elementary school. I bought gum and candy at the store and sold it to kids for double what I paid so I could buy the things I wanted. My business ventures as a child led me to a successful sales career that had me making more money right out of high school than my former teachers, some of them told me I would amount to nothing.

My childhood had been filled with a lot of pain and volatility. Those experiences caused me a lot of problems as an adult. Addiction, bad habits and unhealthy relationships, both business and personal numbed the pain of the past. I was blind to it for a long time. Then, my personal breakthrough came. Everything changed for me because I surrendered. I put in the work to become a better human and then set out on a mission to help others do the same!

Bobby Jones

Bobby Jones is known as Mr. Bright Side, but life was less than happy and cheerful along his journey to where he is now. Growing up in a broken home of drug abuse and bouncing in and out of foster care, Bobby and his siblings were on a rough track. After spending multiple stints in prison, he was released at the age of 21 through a stroke of pure luck that you won’t even believe. Bobby is now a successful entrepreneur, investor and speaker that focuses on contributing back to the world he once took from.


Ryan found himself taking the traditional path. His financial journey was completely normal and by the book. He followed all of the traditional advice: he got a steady job, worked 80 hours a week, did everything he could in order to get the next promotion and climb the corporate ladder. Also he maxed out his 401k contributions and followed every piece of traditional financials advice possible. K All in the hope that one day, he’ll save enough money to get out of the game.

But with every promotion that he got, he felt like he was giving up a part of himself in return. Each new level required more of his time, attention, and dedication while the stress kept piling on. Taking him away from his family and what he truly wanted.

In efforts to escape the corporate rat race, Ryan began educating himself on investmenting – reading books, listening to podcasts, and attending masterminds. Ryan also learned a lot of hard lessons during the crash of “08. Although he was constantly working and sacrificing for in order to build wealth and playing by all the rules, his retirement accounts were cut in half during the financial crisis. Ryan felt “stuck” and although he learned his lessons in a different place than Brad he also felt and had first had losses that traditional financial planning was broken.

CONNECT in action


Dear Master Networker,

       Personal development is one of my passions, and for good reason. When you have the chance to get around like-minded people, a certain sort of magic happens. I created CONNECT to capture that magic, to help every entrepreneur and business leader I know have the opportunity to take time to work on their personal growth.

It's not always easy to give ourselves permission to step back, to take a moment to evaluate where we are and what goals we want to pursue, or even if our current goals are working for us. CONNECT is a chance to do that. 

But CONNECT is more than that!

CONNECT is about connecting. Some of my favorite pictures of past CONNECTs show the attendees greeting each other with smiles and hugs. But even cooler than all the connections made... is what happens with those connections! On average, our attendees increase their businesses by 28% within the 3 months after attending CONNECT. But the bigger question here is...WHY? Why do attendees earn 28% MORE (on average) after going to CONNECT? 

It's not by luck or coincidence. It's not because we walk you through cutting-edge strategies and tactics… (though we'll give you plenty at this event!) And it's not because we bring in experts on mindset and personal development … (though we'll have LOTS of that, too) It's because at CONNECT, you'll learn the steps to get from where you are right now to the NEXT level.

No matter where you're at in your business... There is a PATH to get you TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
