Kathryn Alice: Did She Really Help 100,000 People Find Love?

Kathryn Alice claims to have helped 100,000 people find love. Where's the hard evidence?

Kathryn Alice, author of Love Will Find You, claims on her website to have helped 100,000 people find love. Numbers speak volumes, but can Alice provide proof of her results?

Between her books, teleseminars, and numerous products, Alice has made a business of selling her soulmate attraction program. Her prices are competitive and she has brought her method to many locations at a reasonable rate to make it accessible.

However, is Alice's work that effective? Can she prove the 100,000 people exist who credit her programs directly as the conduit to bringing them together with their soulmate? Is Alice able to provide bonafide references to her claims?

It is evident that Alice means well and her intentions are positive. It is also obvious that she truly wants those who purchase her various programs to find their soulmate as soon as possible. Unfortunately, many good intentions have a less than good outcome.

Alice got her start as a religious science practitioner and worked at Agape in Los Angeles. In 2007, she published her book and began teaching workshops based on it around the country. Eventually Alice delivered her work online. It is through statistics like the 100,000 soulmates that are a selling item for Alice.

The only problem is, what happens when the figure can't be verified, and people who invested in her program don't get the result? There are many reasons why something does not work. At the end of the day it is never the same reason per person. Neither is it a negative statement on Alice or the person who purchased her product and diligently did the work Alice prescribed correctly. Like Alice says, it was just not a fit, but sometimes she doesn't say that.

While reviewing comments on Alice's work on Amazon it appears she tells those who are heartbroken and still single after a strong effort over an extended period that they are lazy. Statements like this are like salt on a wound. Alice may not have had negative motives in her comments but words can hurt. This is a hallmark of Alice's Religious Science training, the power of words.

According to a few Amazon.com and personal blog reviews it seems that there are fans of Alice who have participated in her Create-a-Mate Telecourse every year since 2009 and remain single. Some of these participants have barely dated in all this time that they have continually enrolled in Alice's work. Alice has stated her views on online dating and while I personally agree, if the person is not dating at all, then how good is her work?

A course like Create-a-Mate is priced at a little over $300. This is not the only teleseminar she teaches. One can easily spend $1000 a year on Alice's various workshops and products designed to magnetize your soulmate to you.

Alice has responded to her "lazy" comments and explained her thinking when some of her participants have become upset by her comments. Alice has said that she is not saying a particular person is lazy but in the same breath writes that people who don't manifest as lazy. By logic alone if her customer didn't have their soulmate after doing her work then they are lazy. Or is logic not the pattern of thinking here?

Unlike other coaches in the industry, Kathryn Alice does not appear to offer a money-back guarantee. People like Matthew Hussey and Debi Berndt do. Not only does Hussey and Berndt display fair business in stating a no questions asked refund policy but they are demonstrating faith in their own product. Hussey and Berndt know their product can deliver results but they don't market themselves as some love solution panacea.

There is a fine line between marketing and unfounded claims. I certainly hope Alice can back up her claims and explain the contradictions that have been pointed out in her work by Amazon reviewers who are still listening to her "Manifest Love" CD every night, for two years now, and still single.

After a year or two of immersion in her meditations and addressing blocks using Alice's method, one has to face another obvious question: Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result?

Thomas Edison took 1000 attempts to create a light bulb because he did something different each time. Perhaps Alice herself needs to have some introspection as to why she hasn't given names and references to back up her 100,000 claim or offer the money-back guarantee that Hussey and Berndt do.

Perhaps it's time for a method upgrade or just a willingness to see that sometimes it doesn't work for everybody and perhaps, her method is not perfect, because nothing is in life, not even Alice herself.
