‘Why can’t you leave your job and tell your boss to go to hell?’ is Wesley Virgin's famed line in his attempts to convince frazzled 9-to-5ers to join his Online Millionaire Mastery program. Wesley confidently claims that anyone who joins the program (without experience and skills) will earn $10K in just 45 days through the ‘simplest and dumbest’ money-making strategy. He swears his brother Chris made a million in one year through his help. And, if you don’t make at least $10K monthly? He’ll give you $100. And that’s IF you can prove that his system doesn’t work. 

Overnight Millionaire and Online Millionaire are Wesley Virgin’s masterclasses that promise to teach the mindset and money strategies of the rich and famous. Overnight Millionaire is a library of learning materials on success and wealth. It costs $37. Online Millionaire is the more expensive masterclass priced at $99 and has more content. This course focuses on 

Finding products to promote on clickbait, 

how to create digital products and, 

how to market digital products. 

Wesley “Billion Dollar” Virgin tells a rags-to-riches story. He claims to be the son of a pastor who grew up poor in Houston, Texas. Wesley briefly went to college and then dropped out to enlist in the Army. He was later kicked out for insubordination and got a job at a car dealership in his Houston hometown. His biggest break is his weight-loss eBook "Changed: Secrets of the Fitness Industry Weight-loss Without the Struggle". After his first successful launch, he explored other high-profit niches like healthcare and investing. Wesley was featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, and BuzzFeed. He made his first million at 35, and his current net worth is estimated to be between $20 to $30 million (2023). 

Online Millionaire Mastery and Affiliate Marketing

Online Millionaire teaches affiliate marketing, but Wesley doesn't say it upfront. With its clickbait-y title, you'd expect an in-depth and guided method on how to become a millionaire. But oddly, it doesn't. What you'll get instead are motivational videos, a few upsells, and some affiliate promotions.

To be fair, the content has some value to it, but there are many alternative learning sources where you can get these lessons for free. There are lots of gaps in the learning material, too. 

Wesley Virgin has a questionable reputation online and offline. He’s an “F” in Better Business Bureau’s listing, is not BBB-accredited, and only has a 1.4-star rating (out of 5). There are lots of negative reviews on him, usually about poor customer service and low-quality products. Many consider him a serial swindler. Some speculate his real money-making strategy is to make a course, over-hype it, make money, abandon it, and then create a new one. Others believe his lavish lifestyle is all for clout and marketing. And the sports cars that he shows off are suspected to be rented. To be fair, these are all speculations. No one has verified if he really is (or is not) as rich as he claims to be. 

Online Millionaire has a 60-day refund promise. But, I found online complaints saying Wesley and his team don't take refund requests seriously. A commenter with the name Diana said she didn't receive the digital products she paid for and only received half of the $499 refund she requested. Another commenter, Jean C, said she was scammed by Wesley by refusing to give her a $650 refund for online purchases she didn't receive. Reddit and Quora are full of Wesley Virgin complaints. A Reddit thread also mentions that Wesley uses subliminal stimuli in most of his videos to hook viewers and manipulate them to buy the course. Despite the backlash of angry comments, some still believe he's a good mentor and entrepreneur. 

Wesley didn't grow up rich and made many bad decisions that led to failure. Just like him, you can go from rags to riches with affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketers make an average annual income of at least $30K. The global market is growing at a 10% rate and is estimated to be $14.3 billion worth by the end of 2023. The United States has the largest population of affiliate marketers, 39% of the global size. It's booming industry, there's definitely money in this business model. But Wesley Virgin is not the best choice for an affiliate marketing coach. His strategies are questionable. Although no one has proven that he's a scammer, it's likely that he's living off gullible people who are desperate for quick money.
