Project Life Mastery Review – Is Stefan James’s self-improvement platform a scam?

Project Life Mastery is an online self-improvement education platform that offers several products and resources.Project Life Mastery

In our Project Life Mastery review, we’ll let you know if you should check out Project Life Mastery’s products.

Self-improvement is such an easy market to get into because it’s so broad. You’ve got the big 3 niches: health/fitness, wealth, and relationships. Not only that, but tons of people are willing to pay you if you can persuade them that your course or book is their ticket to massive improvements in their lives.

That means there’s a lot of fluff out there. You see the same basic mindset content being peddled by a ton of gurus looking to make a quick buck off people’s desire to improve.

Project Life Mastery’s main focus is online business, which you’ll notice through its course offerings. However, Project Life Mastery has plenty of free and paid content covering health/fitness and relationships as well.

Naturally, you might be skeptical of Project Life Mastery, as it could be yet another site selling vague “mastery” courses and profiting off people’s pain points without actually helping them.

Project Life Mastery – Overview

Project Life Mastery is a self-improvement education platform full of courses and other resources. It was created in 2012 by Stefan James Pylarinos.

Stefan’s version of his background is pretty vague. He went from shy, unhappy 17 year-old to self-actualized internet millionaire through a journey of self-improvement. Along the way, he started multiple businesses, most of them relatively successful.

Not everyone’s life is some rags-to-riches movie, though. And anyways, the man seems genuine. He works closely with at least 3 charities to build schools in impoverished and underdeveloped countries, going so far as to donate profits from some of his products directly to one of these charities.

Project Life Mastery is his website where he shares all he learned in his self-improvement journey. There’re courses, products he uses, and tons of free content too.

Product

Project Life Mastery offers 7 courses: K Money Mastery 2.0, Affiliate Marketing Mastery, Online Business Mastery Accelerator, Life Mastery Accelerator, Morning Ritual Mastery, and How To Write A Book In Less Than 24 Hours. There’s a software program called K Optimizer that is included in Project Life Mastery’s Course section. Many of these courses are bought through Clickbank. Stefan donates a portion of the proceeds of some of his courses to charity.

In addition to the courses, Project Life Mastery runs an apparel store called Mastery Apparel. 100% of Mastery Apparel profits are donated to charity.

Other features of Project Life Mastery include the blog, Stefan’s YouTube channel, Stefan’s podcast, and a Resources page.

K Money Mastery 2.0 teaches you how to publish books on Kindle.

It has over 30 video lessons split among 21 modules. The first few lessons cover the basics like niche selection and keyword research. The rest of the course guides you from creating your title, to publishing on Kindle, to marketing the book. It then has some lessons about scaling, as well as other lessons covering smaller details. Almost every lesson has an accompanying downloadable PDF worksheet.

Bonus lessons include tax and accounting tips, business structure, scaling, outsourcing, and mindset.

K Money Mastery 2.0 is periodically updated for relevancy.

Overall, this course is best for absolute beginners.

Getting rich as a writer is a lot harder than Stefan makes it out to be, but it’s possible to create a useful amount of passive income on Kindle if you apply these lessons to your Kindle effort.

Affiliate Marketing Mastery is Project Life Mastery’s flagship course that teaches affiliate marketing.

There are 7 modules in this course. Module 1 introduces affiliate marketing and teaches you the importance of having a strategy. Module 2 gets into keyword and market research. Module 3 shows you how to create your blog and its social media, as well as use SEO. Then, you learn content creation in Module 4.

Modules 5 and 6 teaches you how to attract visitors and subscribers and then how to monetize your new audience. Module 7 closes out the course with content on performance tracking and optimization.

Bonuses include 90 days of email coaching with Stefan, 7 twice-weekly live coaching webinars, 7 webinar Q&A sessions, advanced strategies training, case studies, and interviews.

 

There are “Accelerator” courses that operate on a membership, starting with Online Business Mastery Accelerator.

Each month, Stefan hosts a live coaching webcast to give you a similar experience to his expensive 1-on-1 coaching. He covers

In addition, Online Business Mastery Accelerator comes with a broad series of videos covering online business with a slight emphasis on affiliate marketing.

3 of Online Business Mastery Accelerator’s bonuses are video trainings that cover business plan creation, some mindset stuff, and a 6-step blueprint that works for many online businesses. The other two are a private Facebook group and a list of 10 things Stefan would do if he had to start over in online business.

Life Mastery Accelerator is a broad self-improvement membership program.

Just like with Online Business Mastery Accelerator, Stefan hosts live monthly webcasts on various self-improvement topics. Each month, he covers a different topic. Topics include health, fitness, finances, career, business, social life, relationships, emotions, beliefs, mindset, and spirituality.

Stefan’s included video trainings on multiple parts of each of these topics.

The first 3 bonuses are mindset training, a self-improvement blueprint, and a private Facebook group, all in the same vein as Online Business Mastery Accelerator’s. The one bonus unique to Life Master Accelerator is a video that shows you how to set up your own weekly system to evaluate your progress in all areas of life.

I think you can learn everything he teaches by consuming free resources elsewhere on the internet, but this program is pretty cheap anyways.

Project Life Mastery naturally has a Morning Rituals Mastery course.

This course is 7 days long. Each day, you’re supposed to watch or listen to the lesson, then complete each lesson’s worksheet. Stefan structured the course so that you’ll end up with a custom morning ritual that works for you, rather than just learning his morning ritual.

I find it funny that someone actually made a course on morning rituals, let alone one with such a long sales page, but it’s cheap. You’re basically paying someone a few bucks to hold you accountable to your morning routine.

Stefan will also teach you How To Write A Book In 24 Hours even if you’re bad at writing.

The course consists of 11 video lessons with accompanying PDF worksheets. Stefan teaches you his 10-step method for writing books quickly. There’re lessons on coming up with topics when you can’t think of any, writing killer titles, and more.

Pair this course with K Money Mastery 2.0 and K Optimizer for maximum Kindle profits.

K Optimizer is a software program for Kindle publishers.

It keeps track of all your books in one convenient location. K Optimizer also allows you to track up to 50 keywords, giving you a glimpse of your book’s ranking for multiple keywords at once. Other features include a book formatting manager, book promotion and press release submitter tools, a Kindle book description generator, various alerts relevant to your books, and detailed reporting features for sales tracking.

Mastery Apparel is their branded apparel store.

They’ve got men’s and women’s apparel, hats, and even some neat little accessories like posters and phone cases.

100% of Mastery Apparel’s profits go to 2 of Stefan’s favorite charities, We.org and Imagine1day. Both charities build schools and similar facilities in countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania.

The Resources page is basically Stefan’s affiliate income stream.

Not only are his courses listed again on this page, but there’s a huge list of products he uses accompanied by affiliate links. I saw stuff on there that I’ve reviewed, like the Amazing Selling Machine and Junglescout.

Upsells

K Money Mastery 2.0 has 3 upsells. Two of them are Full Disclosure and Kindle VA Training. He upsells his 24 Hour Book program (see the Products section of this review) as the 3rd. Full Disclosure teaches advanced strategies for boosting Kindle income, while Kindle VA Training has lessons on outsourcing to virtual assistants.

The 24 Hour Book program’s first upsell is K Money Mastery 2.0, while the other two upsells are the same as K Money Mastery 2.0’s upsells.

K Optimizer has 5 upsells. 2 are subscription plans called Advanced and Master. The other 3 are the same as 24 Hour Book’s upsells. Advanced lets you track up to 250 keywords, while Master lets you track up to 1,000 keywords.

Other than the increase in trackable keywords with each subsequent K Optimizer upsell, the rest of the features remain the exact same.

Pricing

K Money Mastery costs a one-time fee of $97. Full Disclosure costs $47 per month and Kindle VA Publishing costs $197 up front.

Affiliate Marketing Mastery costs $997, but you can opt for 3 monthly payments of $397. It used to be $1,997 or 3 payments of $767, according to both his sales page and multiple reviews.

Online Business Mastery Accelerator costs $97 per month or $997 per year. Life Mastery Accelerator costs $29 per month or $297 per year. Morning Ritual Mastery costs $37 one time, while How To Write A Book In Less Than 24 Hours costs $27 one time.

K Optimizer costs $27.77 per month. The Advanced subscription bumps that up to $37.77 per month, while the Master subscription costs $77.77 per month.

None of his courses are that pricy aside from Affiliate Marketing Mastery. Most of these are great deals.

Also, it’s worth noting that Stefan donates 10% of all Affiliate Marketing Mastery’s and Morning Ritual Mastery’s profits to a charity called Change Heros that builds schools in Ecuador and Kenya. Might help him sell more copies of the course, but hey, can’t hate him for helping those in need.

Affiliate Program

Project Life Mastery has affiliate opportunities for each course, but they aren’t unified into one affiliate program.

K Money Mastery 2.0 affiliates can earn 50% commission per referral. Full Disclosure upsells earn you 25% recurring commissions, while Kindle VA Training and 24 Hour Book upsells earn you 50% commissions.

24 Hour Book’s commission structure is the same as K Money Mastery 2.0’s, but the change in price depending on which one is upsold can slightly alter your commission amount. Both programs are done through Clickbank and JVZoo.

Affiliate Marketing Mastery affiliates can earn 50% commissions on all referrals, meaning you can earn $498.50 per one-time fee referral and $595.50 per referral that opts for monthly payments. One sale every other day nets you 6 figures per year. You do have to apply, though, and Stefan doesn’t take everyone.

Weirdly enough, neither Online Business Mastery Accelerator no Life Mastery Accelerator appear to have affiliate programs. Stefan doesn’t have any affiliate signup pages and neither course could be found on Clickbank.

Morning Ritual Mastery pays 50% commissions per referral. This program is also done through both Clickbank and JVZoo.

K Optimizer affiliates can earn 50% monthly recurring commissions per referrals. Upsell commissions are the exact same as 24 Hour Book’s upsell commissions except they bump up the Full Disclosure commissions to 50%. This one’s done through Clickbank.

Stefan gives you all the marketing materials you need in every affiliate program.

Recap

Project Life Mastery is not a scam, although I can see why people think so. It’s easy to brand yourself as a generic self-improvement guru so you can peddle useless mindset or online business courses that teach nothing of substance.

But Project Life Mastery isn’t one of these money grabs.

Sure, the course quality isn’t mind-blowing, but neither are the prices. Not to mention the sheer amount of free content available on the site through Stefan’s blog, YouTube, and podcast.

And I don’t know any scammers who started an apparel store that donates all its profits to charity. Stefan’s got good intentions.
