This course will teach you how to freestyle rap so you can get in touch with a stream of unlimited creative ideas for your art, career and personal business... Learning how to freestyle rap will give you the best foundation possible for learning how to rap and write songs... By the end of the course...
  • You will have an immediate defense against stress related creative blockers that keep you from creating the high value unique content that you know you can…
  • You will be able to effortlessly come up with and stream the creative ideas that will help you stand out and be successful in any endeavor, creative, business, or even your personal life.
"This course will save you thousands of dollars on drugs" ;) If you're not coming up with fresh new ideas then you're dead! If you're not adding new creative ideas in your career you get fired If you're not pushing the limits in your art and music, you get no views, and people won't pay attention or care what you're doing If you're not creating something new in your own business you will go bankrupt fast And If you're not adding anything new to the world... You'll die full of regrets Apple, Google, and Facebook have all said they are only interested in hiring the most passionate and creative people in the world. They want people who will push the envelope in their companies and who will come up with new multimillion dollar ideas FOR them… People who only follow the leader and stick to what they are told are at high risk for never being hired at these big companies and quickly getting laid off, if they somehow managed to get in the door... These huge companies want innovators, and new cutting edge ideas all the time A music audience wants fresh songs, with unique music video visuals, new concepts with inspiring lyrics… If you're not pushing yourself creatively then you are most likely being overlooked by your boss, by your fans, and your friends and family… The wealthiest and most successful artists and entrepreneurs have all been brave enough to figure out how to activate a creative flow state where novel "light bulb" ideas come to them… Where "Aha" moments are streaming all the time…. They have learned to be receptive and open to this flow state because they know it will lead to their next greatest work which could generate them millions of dollars and 1,000 of new loyal fans… Yet how can the average person activate and get in touch with this flow state... So… They are no longer at risk of being fired… So they can thrive in business and life And so they are finally inspiring their audience? A recent study showed a group of scientists who wanted to study improvisation in relation to high value creative output… They decided to use professional freestyle rappers as their subjects… They put each rapper in a MRI scan and had them freestyle rap while they studied their brains… They discovered that freestyle rappers are able to immediately activate a flow state or complete immersion in creative activity. This "flow state" triggers self-motivation, positive emotions of joy and happiness, and loss of self consciousness... They also said the ability to access this flow state helps artists in other forms of spontaneous creative behavior as well So freestyle rappers are able to immediately access this flow state whenever they want through the practice of freestyle rapping…. Who cares, how do I assess this flow state? I'm not a freestyle rapper? Well freestyle rapping is the quickest way to tap into this flow state and start rewiring the brain to produce more unique and creative ideas… A healthy and money saving alternative to doing tons of drugs… Like many artists and entrepreneurs do to reach the same state And the good news is it only takes about 7 minutes to learn how to freestyle rap and then have that skill for life… I, accidentally came up with a 4 step process that has had a 100% success rate in teaching 1,000's of people how to freestyle rap and you can currently have access to it through Udemy in full HD training videos… Where I go through the steps with you to ensure your success… This course is not: Tons of theory This course is entirely experiential where we go back and forth together in small steps until you are comfortable freestyle rapping… Please note: This course will help you start being able to stream creative ideas instantly. I recommend keeping a voice recorder handy so you don't lose them. Schools normally pay me $250 just to teach the 4 steps to help people start freestyling… This doesn't even include the advanced training you're about to have access too… Because I want as many people as possible who are ready to change their lives for the better by inviting new heightened levels of creativity… Without the drugs... I'm not charging $250… The price of the course is $197 however for a limited time... You don't have to pay that much… Currently you can get 75% off the full course… And start Freestyle Rapping for only $47 This also includes bonus, Advanced freestyle skills that will help you really impress anybody who hears you rap… These bonus skills will also give you more material and help you have more fun by igniting new depths of creativity… You'll never be at a loss for ideas… These skills will truly cement you in a flow state… Buy the course now to start enjoying unlimited creative flow and potential within minutes… Freestyle Rapping rewires the brain to be receptive to creative inspiration and ideas… It usually takes about two weeks of practicing freestyling everyday for about five minutes a day… A two week practice will ensure that your access to this "flow state" is developed and will stick with you for the long term… Use this training to activate your flow state whenever you want… I hope you enjoy this course and I look forward to hearing your freestyles! -Pat
