Talking about education and real-world skills on Michelle Malkin Investigates


To be honest, the marketplace seems oversaturated right now with coaches and people who are looking to give professional advice/mentorship. More importantly, the market seems oversaturated with under-qualified, or flat-out unqualified, people looking to enter this space. I never really doubted Zak’s abilities, but given how hit or miss other people’s services can be, I approached this with a little bit of hesitation and skepticism. Right away my team and I started seeing getting replies on our cold emails and fundraising efforts. Zak totally outperformed my expectations. He demonstrated that he is the real deal when it comes to this stuff. My team and I all came away from the experience feeling like we had learned a lot, and that it would significantly aid us in our work.

— David Clement, Nonprofit Fundraiser at Students For Liberty, Hired me for an email outreach workshop.

Most workshop and conference speakers aren’t worth what they cost. They come in to say a few words, pump a few people up, and leave.
