As you take the long and winding road up through the densely packed trees you get your first glimpse of Hugh Hefner’s private residence, a.k.a. the Playboy Mansion. Like a castle, built in 1920 where visitors originally came by horse and buggy. Hefner bought the Mansion for $1.2 million and today Neferteri Sheperd (Miss July) tells me it is worth between $40-$50 million. As you look around you realize that Hefner’s Home is worth more than $40 million but who wants to pay exorbitant property taxes.

Kevin Hogan at the Playboy Mansion Pool The Swimming Pool by day is absolutely beautiful… later it becomes the focal point of the night for many.
Off the Limo Shuttle, all those with cameras take them out and begin snapping. Being received at the mansion is a treat… Kevin Hogan and Playboy Bunnies at the Mansion
The Swimming Pool it turns out isn’t somewhere you swim laps. It’s really a play area and as you can see it is beautiful. Later the pool would be populated with other forms of beauty. Here I get to say hello to the girls who had their bodies painted at various point throughout the evening. Secret: One of them has just finished having a blue t-shirt painted on her.

This shot is of the networking area. As you can see, about 400 were in attendance at this spectacular bash. Internet Marketing Networking Event at the Playboy Mansion 08/07
Kevin Hogan at the Playboy Mansion The event people asked if we wanted to send a photo home and of course I did so Dave Lakhani and I mugged it up for the event photographer which they jetted off to . These guys were great and we hung out a bit together too. I haven’t seen a smile like that on my face since the day I got out of high school….and realize…I’m only hamming it up with Dave….and turn the page, I think you’ll be glad you did!


Playing Pool at the Playboy Mansion Next up is a tour of the Mansion grounds and the famous game room where the likes of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and scores of other celebrities played into the night. I had told Dave (Lakhani) that was the one thing I really wanted to do at the Mansion. (He really believed me…)
In the Game Room at the Playboy Mansion The Hefner family was home last night so there was no visiting inside, but the outside was spectacular enough. The aquarium, reptile and birds that Hefner has taken in to mend are all beautiful. But then it was back to pool.
In the Game Room at the Playboy Mansion Guide, Neferteri Sheperd
After departing from playing pool we ran into another group of people taking their own unescorted tour of the mansion. It seems that women are not required to have escorts but men are…and that made a lot of sense.

Laurena Lacey with Kevin Hogan at the Playboy Mansion Laurena Lacey, A girl with a delightful Irish accent and more than indulgent to our group she somehow pretended that the four of us were cool and she posed for numerous photos in Hefner’s front yard. She went way above the call of duty (she was a guest and not not working). She won us all over as fans. I pointed out to Laurena that the cameraman was over there…only to realize that I too was having a blonde moment…
The star is a replica of the one on Hollywood Blvd. Notice my right hand is very far away from Laurena…I promise you that was not an instinct…my conscious mind was 100% kicked in… Kevin Hogan and Laurena Lacey at the Mansion
Saying goodbye to Miss Lacey’s group we asked Neferteri if we could get some shots in back with mansion as backdrop. As always she obliged…and if you turn the page you’ll see much more! Kevin Hogan at Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion



Back to networking and the party. Internet Marketing Networking Event at the Playboy Mansion 08/07
Kevin Hogan at the Playboy Mansion Grotto Dave and I broke off from the group and decided to explore “the grotto.” I didn’t have any pictures taken of me in the inner sanctum, but I did ask Dave to snap this one the way “in.”
Kevin Hogan in the Game Room at the Playboy Mansion Ryan, who created the “Rich Jerk” icon/brand (and he is nothing like a rich jerk, but one of the nicest guys I’ve had a chance to meet), asked if he could get a short video of me with a couple of the girls in the pool. I told him my pants, shirt, shoes and coat were staying on my body (I’m such a killjoy) but Trina Michaels (working for the mansion, not a guest) ingratiated the video crew for the Mansion and event. With luck that 45 seconds of video will vanish into the archives of Hefner Heaven. I told Trina we’d get a “photo shopped” picture of her and I up. She’s really beautiful but there was no way…I mean…oh man…
Laurena Lacey at the Playboy Mansion Laurena. The total sweetheart. We ship her back to Ireland next week because heaven forbid she overstay her three week visa…..


These two lovely ladies weren’t looking at the right camera in the original photo with the four receiving gals so I asked if we could do a two for one deal. They readily accepted. Influence, Persuasion, Body Language Expert Kevin Hogan at the Playboy Mansion 08-17-07
Kevin Hogan with Playboy Bunny Brooke is such a sweetheart.
See, two looking at camera one, the others at camera two. Not forgiveable. (They were great.) Next week we’ll post more photos from the mansion as well as the Playboy Club in Las Vegas. Kevin Hogan and Playboy Bunnies at the Mansion
Neferteri Shepherd with Kevin Hogan at the entrance to the Playboy Mansion. Neferteri is a down to earth girl. Liked her very much. She is a great tour guide. Kevin Hogan and Neferteri Shepherd


ATTENTION: Discover The Tactics & Techniques of Persuasion

Imagine How Powerful You Would Be if You Actually Knew All the Persuasion Tactics in Existence

  • What would you do?
  • How would you influence others?
  • What would you want?

Persuasion tactics are very specific pieces of the persuasion pie. There are 59 tactics that can be utilized in the persuasion process and they are ALL detailed here for you.

No one on the planet has ever released a program containing every tactic of influence and persuasion. They are here for the first time.

You Will:

  • Conquer Your Market
  • Motivate Your Clients
  • Profit in Surprising Ways From Your New Knowledge

This program breaks new ground in persuasion.

100% Legal!

  • Eliminate the “call back for approval.”
  • Eliminate “buyers remorse.”
  • Eliminate, “I’ll think about it.”
  • Eliminate your competition.

Whether you have the Science of Influence Master’s Course (v.1-12) or not, you MUST get the ADVANCED Master’s Course (Part II) now. This 14-hour course on CD comes with an oversized manual that makes learning and mastering the tactics and techniques of persuasion remarkably simple.

“…your courses are the reason that I made $32,000 last week!”

“I bought your Covert Hypnosis and Science of Influence and I thought I owed it to you to tell you that your courses are the reason that I made $32,000 last week! I used to lose a great deal of customers ‘on the fence’. I thought it was just part of the deal, you get some, you lose most. I still make a great living getting ‘some’. I believe your courses enabled me to get most of the ones that are ‘on the fence’ while losing only some of them. Thanks!” Mark Deaton, AGSI, Twin Falls, ID

Principles of “Mind Reading” Revealed

In 1999 one of the world’s finest mentalists (someone who “reads minds” for entertainment without lying to you…it’s magic…) agreed to show me how to calibrate to almost anyone’s thought processes with a quick look at the person and the expression on their face. It took me all of a couple of hours to “get it.” All he asked in return was to tap my mind on the latest in persuasion. It was a match made in heaven.

The principles of mind reading are wrapped up in what Fortune 500 companies call psychographics. In a nutshell, you can tell a LOT about a person by asking three questions and looking at how they dress and keep themselves. No. Not a lot….everything that matters.

Mark told me that his accuracy was unparalleled and after I successfully did what he did with people, I never doubted him again.

I took the three questions, the appearance pieces and assembled the information into the coolest psychographic tool anyone could ask for.

These two (of 12) CD’s alone are worth 10 times the price of the Advance Course and that is understating the fact dramatically.

You will blow people’s minds (and your own) by knowing what people think before THEY are consciously aware of it themselves.

This is one of the big reasons people find the advanced course their “favorite” of the Science of Influence sets.

The information here will either help you or your competitor plant the flag atop your market.

Let it be you!

** Secret 1 : In EVERY presentation you make your client wants to say “yes”, at least ONCE. Learn how to TRIGGER that moment and move before they turn back to “no!”

** Secret 2 : There are precisely 59 tactics in persuasive communication. No more. No less. They have been identified and for the first time anywhere, they are presented to you in the Advanced Course!

** Secret 3 : Everyone fears rejection. Everyone. Your CLIENT doesn’t want to be rejected by YOU! Find out how to answer that call for connection every time.

** Secret 4 : No one wants to hear “no.” OK that’s not a BIG secret. How would you like to ELIMINATE your fear of hearing no…forever?!

** Secret 5 : NLP was on the right track with meta-programs. I found out which ones made a difference in selling…then found 7 new meta-programs no one else had come across…ever…and they are all assembled for you!

More that will be revealed to you:

* Credibility: 7 things you MUST do to be seen as credible by your client.

* All 59 tactics in persuading anyone to your way of thinking? They are ALL here.

The Beginning, the Middle, and the End

In the Master’s Home Study Course Part One (V. 1-12) you learned an enormous amount of cutting-edge material now coming to light in the field of influence. Many consider the Science of Influence the Win Friends and Influence People for the 21st Century! Now you are going to gain access to truly advanced information about social influence and the persuasion process that has never been released to the public, ever!

“Imagine how powerful you would be if you actually knew all the persuasion tactics in existence. Imagine. What would you do? How would you influence others? What would you want?”

Ready? They’re here. All 59 Tactics of Persuasion!

In order to complete the second series (13-24) in the Science of Influence Home Based Program, I’ve decided to give you my secret compendium of all the tactics of persuasion.

A tactic is a very specific maneuver or plan for attaining a very specific goal. A number of tactics usually combine to form a strategy and a number of strategies…spell success. The verbal tactic is the atom. It is the smallest component in verbal persuasion.

The greatest aspect of having all 59 tactics at your finger tips is that you can determine the best tactic for each and every situation that you are in where you need compliance. (That means, “Yes!”)

So many people use the same tactics over and over and begin to sound like a machine. This is true in international negotiation, speeches, sales presentations, or even in getting the date. The person who succeeds and hears “yes” is the person who has the widest knowledge of tactics and the ability to apply them instantly.

“If You Don’t Know the Tactics, You Simply Cannot Be Persuasive to Anyone or Any Group in the Long Term!” Kevin Hogan
