Has anyone here had experience with anything like WorldWorks? From what I've found/googled, there are several of these kinds of places all over the US and they have a bunch of different names, but they tend to be fairly similar in what they teach and how they operate. I have a friend who is pressuring me to take some classes and after doing some digging around it is sounding more and more like they just want your money. The reason I've become concerned is that this isn't normal pressure that my friend is putting on me to "enroll". It started out like it was this really neat opportunity to make my life what I wanted without giving me a whole lot of specifics about what it entails. When he told me how much it was (above $2k) I pretty much said no way. The pressure than built up into something much more to the point where I'm almost being bullied into finding ways to make the extra money so I can go. This has been going on for the last 5 days. What I'm wondering is, if I should be worried about my friend and what he's gotten into, or if it's pretty harmless and I just need to keep telling him no and that it isn't for me. Thanks EDIT: I've become more concerned learning that this is linked to Lifespring.
