Before you say anything. I’m fully aware that I’m a walking contradiction. I tell people who ask my advice about bartending school not to go, and yet I vehemently tell people to sign-up for my online bartending school/ bartending course.
Seems like an self-serving thing to do, doesn’t it? And technically it is, because I get paid for it, but trust me, it’s a very difficult position to be in.
What it comes down to is that all other bartending schools and online bartending courses are very different than mine. The truth is they are teaching their students the wrong things when it comes to helping them become a bartender. Or maybe not the “wrong” things as much as they are leaving out 70% of the lessons necessary to help people actually land the job.
If you really want to know what I think about bartending schools, watch my video.
My point is, imagine if you were Lebron James, and you taught basketball lessons on shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding and defense, and there were 100 other people out there teaching lessons on just passing and dribbling and left out the other three, but they were promising their lessons would get you a division I scholarship in basketball if you signed up for their classes.
Then people come to you and ask your advice: “Lebron, should I take lessons on basketball from these other guys?”
What do you say without sounding self-serving when you know that the other guys aren’t getting it done, but what you’re offering actually helps people get to where they want to go?
Ok, I’m not comparing myself to Lebron James. I don’t even like Lebron James (he’s a ring-chaser), but the truth is, I have the #1 book on Amazon on how to become a bartender with no experience, and now my new course is quickly climbing the ranks, so I’m tired of beating around the bush.
Allow me lead you down this path of blatant transparency:
Should you go to another bartending school?
Should you sign up for my online bartending course?
Do I get paid when you sign up for my course.
Is it worth it?
Why is it worth it?
Because I don’t just teach you to memorize drinks. I lay out a step-by-step plan that gets you the job every time.
Why should you trust me?
Nearly 3 decades of experience in the bar industry, including 8 years as a bar manager/GM and 6 years as a bar consultant. I have interviewed, hired and fired more bartenders than you have hairs on your body. And let’s not forget my students, who are right now earning millions of dollars in tips as we speak.
Do I guarantee the results?
You’d better believe it. How does a LIFETIME guarantee sound? Not good enough? Ok then, 2 LIMETIMES (in case you start out poor in your next life and want your money back, or if you come back as a banana slug or something).
There, I said it. Now you can go ahead and make your own choice and I can be at peace.

If not, I wish you the best of luck in whatever you choose to do in life. I really do.
Cheers, until next time,
