Ravi Abuvala, founder of Scaling With Systems program, is no different to widely-known entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. He had to drop-out of school like them. But unlike the individuals behind the tech giants in Apple and Microsoft who decided to cop out because they feel like it, Ravi is more unfortunate since his dad’s cancer left him with no choice but to quit school. The said event would eventually prompt his journey from owning a humble online business to managing multiple seven-figure companies. Quite inspirational, am I right? Well, don’t let your emotions take over since you need to use your noggins well before joining his program. Read the review below to learn why.
First of all, do you even have a business? If you’re not aware of the term in the program’s name, scaling means increasing your business’ revenue without a substantial increase in resources. I hope you get it, what is there to scale if you are beginner without any business at all right? His high-ticket courses are based on that premise – that he’ll show you ways to scale your biz to five-figures a month and beyond.
Well, Ravi also has a course for those who are just getting started to make money online. He called this 90-day course Remote Integrator Academy. But I cannot recommend it for beginners for a simple reason – it’s not-so beginner friendly cost. Around $6k to be exact. Besides, there are reviews from its students who praise the program for its contents with all the fancy accountability groups but goes to say that they’re not getting any profit yet from the program. I don’t care if you have all these flashy gimmicks in your course. If there’s no actual results, then I can’t recommend it.
Moving on to the high-ticket courses which is Ravi’s specialty. The flagship course listed on his program’s site is titled Scaling with Systems. Basically, the main point of this course is to teach you how to outsource virtual assistants (VAs) effectively so you can focus on your business’ marketing for scaling. Take yourself out of the day-to-day operations so you can focus on building a sales funnel and a system of leveraged paid traffic.
The cost of the said course is behind a “clarity” call. I’m not going to be bothered to call them, I won’t subject myself to a likely high-pressure sales talk when I know I won’t be buying. I suggest that you don’t buy it too since my research shows that it costs around $12,000. I don’t think that you need a step-by-step instruction behind a $12k course to hire VAs, it’s not that complicated. You can also learn about marketing strategies at a lesser cost than Ravi’s.
Speaking of hiring VAs, the salary of such is not cheap at all. The recommendation of the course is to hire someone based on US which means thousands of dollars in salary a month. Not so fun fact, someone from India or Philippines can go as low as $3 per hour. Still, it’s not always a good move to outsource. Outsourcing is not inherently bad per se, but it’s not a be-all end-all solution to scale your business. Consider the timing and the capacity of your business first. Also, ask yourself if you are open to managing individuals outside your own company.
For added information, Ravi also has a course named Scaling Initiative for scaling $30,000 a month business even further. It’s a 12-month mastermind where Ravi and his team will be your “virtual, 8-figure, ‘board of advisors’ inside your business to create and implement custom solutions, build your team of ‘A’ players, secure data-backed client acquisition, network at live events, and have a lot of fun in the process.” Similar to Scaling With Systems, I’ll advise to skip this program. I’m already not paying for a $12k course, what makes you think I’ll take the bait on a more expensive one?
Don’t get me wrong, I think Ravi is a genuine entrepreneur with a legitimate consulting business outside of selling a course. He’s not like Adrian Morrison who’s accused of only getting rich by peddling expensive courses. He also radiates good vibes and authority, just look at him being majestic while riding an equally beautiful horse. Still, I am not inclined to recommend any of his courses. The cost is just too expensive.
