Hey, I’m Stef. Welcome to my Hustlers University review.
I’m a digital entrepreneur with close to a dozen years of experience making money online with SEO, affiliate marketing, a marketing agency, and consulting. I was draw to Hustlers University after seeing the absolute s***storm of media controversy.
As someone who’s dedicated half of his life to making money online and helping others earn a living too, I wanted to give my unique perspective on the course, community, and teaching methods – as well as on Mr. Tate himself.
I’ve spent the last month going through Andrew “Cobra” Tate’s eCom, crypto, and copywriting training.
The verdict of this Hustlers University review is: No… but kind of.
Read on to get the full explanation.
MAJOR UPDATE (PLEASE READ)
Hustlers University 3.0 is now live. It had closed before, but has re-opened with some “brand new features' ‘. However, as I write this, it seems that “Cobra” shut down his affiliate program.
This probably comes as a shock to hundreds and thousands of “hustlers” that recommended Andrew Tate’s course on TikTok (excruciating to watch all day).
I’m not sure why he’s done this, but it doesn’t really have any effect on what’s inside the training.
Hustlers University 3.0 used to be a great course many years ago but it doesn't hold up to other similar courses in 2024. If you're looking to make money online, consider Matt Diggity's Affiliate Lab.
Andrew Tate is a MASTER SHOCK MARKETER. He knows how to get attention.
However, he is definitely NOT a master entrepreneur, digital marketing expert, eCom guy, or crypto investor.
He’s definitely a really smart guy, and you can learn some basic affiliate marketing training and other methods of online business to earn money online – but it’s mostly entry-level stuff.
$50 a month is $600 a year. You can easily find better online business programs or online courses for that same price or a bit more.
Most of the course information is available either in free courses or on YouTube.
I really feel like Tate’s biggest value to readers is just being part of his Hustlers community and kind of worshiping him as a god. Not that I blame him – it’s just not really worth an ongoing monthly subscription.
Hustlers University is not a get rich quick scheme or an MLM pyramid scheme like everyone says, but it’s essentially an “MLM adjacent” operation.
He used to push students to promote the course heavily in exchange for 50% of the lifetime value of a sign up, so pretty much every positive review you read will be incentivized.
So Tate gets thousands of influencers to promote his teachings to young men and shows them a life they think they want.
So, while he isn’t as bad as Tai Lopez or anything, I highly suggest you invest in other online courses instead with more modern, practical advice.
What is Hustlers University?
Hustlers University is an online academy that promises to teach high-paying skills that you can then turn into a source of wealth. It’s making waves due to the frequent student success stories andmass viral marketing that Tate is so good at.
It’s a money-focused community of “experts” teaching 100,000 worldwide students different money making skills like copywriting, digital marketing, SEO, eCommerce, and crypto – among others.
The goal is to help people start making money online as fast as possible.
It was founded in 2021 as a successor to one of Tate’s other products: The War Room.
He is basically promising that he can teach anyone to make money online via “passive income”.
The business model is simple: Get students in, push them to promote his own product, pay 50% commission, then watch as frequent student success stories skyrocket sales.
Who is Hustlers University Made For?
Hustlers University claims to be made for anyone that wants to learn to make money online, especially beginners with no prior experience.
Tate claims that he can help you make money online from day 1 with high-paying skills… but I personally don’t believe that’s true.
Tate definitely teaches a lot about multiple different business models, and unlike most other online programs, he does offer private Discord servers so everyone can interact regularly.
However, most of this info is available for free elsewhere and many of his teachings are outdated or not viable long-term.
Again, I really feel like Tate is all about building a mass following and expaning his personal brand and business ventures rather than giving the best advice to young guys that look up to him.
Who Is Andrew Tate?
“Emory Andrew Tate III“ is an American-born English kickboxer, entrepreneur, influencer, media personality, and lightning rod for controversy that has both made him famous and infamous.
His father, Emory Tate, was an American Chess master and kickboxer who moved his family to the UK when Andrew was in his teens.
Andrew followed in his father’s footsteps and took up kickboxing, eventually winning 4 world championships before retiring and pursuing a life of semi-celebrity, entrepreneurship, and influencer marketing. He claims that he never made any money from kickboxing.
He is constantly in the news for seemingly inflammatory statements about women.
Though, to be fair, what he’s said is often taken completely out of context and he’s villainized by strangers that don’t actually know his real teachings.
He is also dating Jordan Peterson’s daughter.
Why is Andrew Tate Famous and Where Did His Money Come From?
Andrew Tate was somewhat famous for his kickboxing career and appearances on British reality TV shows before getting into online business. He then began to build an online brand by teaching about making money online while living somewhere in Eastern Europe.
He claims that his money comes from running a super profitable webcam business, casinos, and investing in crypto. My only issue is that many people who made millions in crypto aren’t expert investors. They just got BTC when it was $1 and sold it at 60k. So until I see more proof, I can’t say 100% that he is an expert. I just don’t know him well enough.
There is a ton of evidence for his webcam business, so the guy clearly knows how to run a company. But he claims to have made his money from a webcam business – not from writing, Amazon, eCom, or any of the other things he teaches. In fact, none of his past life has anything to do with what’s in the course…
It seems more likely that he made money running a business and then put it into crypto.
Why is There so Much Controversy Around Andrew Tate?
Before social media algos starting shoving his viral teachings down everyone’s throats, Tate was trying to get famous via MMA or appearing on reality TV shows.
When that didn’t work out, he took to social media platforms to flaunt his wealth and lifestyle to young, super impressionable young men with identity issues.
He serves as a role model to the millions of directionless young men who don’t have much success in life with women, work, family, or their own personal self worth.
The reason there’s so much controversy is because he often says purposely inflammatory things to get more views. He even goes so far as to say that women shouldn’t drive and that they are a man’s property. While his statements are often taken out of context, there’s a lot of very problematic language. Also, I just don’t like when people try to stir controversy just to get attention.
If Andrew Tate’s Hustler’s University were actually any good, then he would just market it naturally. He wound’t have to say crazy s*** just to get attention.
Who is Tristan Tate?
Andrew’s brother, Tristan, was also an MMA fighter who now follows in his brother’s footsteps and runs a management company for models.
I don’t believe he’s an expert in digital entrepreneurship though.
The course was almost all super basic business information that no longer works or is available on YouTube. There were also a ton of errors and frankly bad advice.
So it’s nice to see some new versions out there with better stuff. The newer courses with “upgraded” information (2.0 and 3.0) are slightly better, but everything seems fairly basic till.
Also, the course is full of somewhat pushy methods of promoting the course – NOT a good sign.
The 3.0 Course
Let me just get this out of the way first. Tate really needs to take a course on professional audio, because his course audio is rough.
It reall feels like he just used some lapel mic he found at a gas station and recorded this thing in his basement.
It nearly crippled my ears, and I used to play heavy metal drums 5 days a week. After getting my ears rocked, I wasn’t in the mood to learn anything.
Then, we take a massive detour AWAY from learning about how to make money and instead we listen to Tate talk about how everything is rigged against you and you need to get out of the system.
If you’re looking to legit learn how to make money online, this is a waste of your time. If you’re looking to make money with YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, SEO, eCom, Amazon, stocks, crypto, or WHATEVER – this is totally useless to you.
How is the Course Structured?
Here’s how Hustlers University works in a nutshell.
Basically, you choose a skill:
Then, once you get to six figures, he’ll teach you to multiply that with stocks or crypto:
Then you’ll learn to scale by changing your mindset:
Again, just more stuff about how to unlock the beast within and make millions.
There’s solid information in here, but it’s not very high level. And definitely not worth $50 a month, especially when you’re just starting a business.
Once you’re in the Discord, you’ve got a choice between:
- Crypto Campus
- Ecommerce campus
- Copywriting campus
- Stocks campus
- Affiliate marketing campus
- Freelance campus
- Amazon FBA campus
As someone who’s been in this industry for half his life now, I can 100% say that there’s good info in here, but that you’ll find it from hundreds of different influencers for free on the web. Like, if you want to learn about FBA, then forget FBA campus and just go to YouTube and watch some FBA channels. There are dozens of them.
Almost all of the professors in HU 2.0 and 3.0 come from the War Room. The War Room was one of Tate’s older products that costs about $5,000 to join. It’s essentially a mastermind that reveres Tate like a cult figurehead. I have never joined the War Room though so I don’t know.
The War Room is a Telegram group that’s dedicated to networking and connecting Tate’s fans together.
It seems like it’s mostly sad, lost, and desperate young men in their 20s who don’t know who they are or what they want to be. They see Tate as a cult hero and role model, which is very scary if you ask me.
These guys could be running businesses that are respectable and not wasting time seeing how the system is rigged against them. Like, if the system really were rigged, then these methods of earning an online income wound’t even exist. We’d all just be poor and living as servants to the Illuminati.
So, while there’s decent info and some support, it’s not what you want in a course. What you want in a course is ultra rich, successful business people teaching the latest info, letting you into your network, and guiding you through the process – NOT someone bragging about cars and women, then convincing you to promote his course.
And when I was reviewing the trades from some of the crypto and stock professors, ther were tons of losses. I’m not sure if these are the people to base your moneymaing strategies on.
Other Customer Testimonials
What’s scary to me is that of all of the dozens of sites reviewing Hustlers University, all of the positive ones are direct affiliates of the course and will get money if you sign up. There isn’t a single positive review from a non-affiliate.
If everyone is just raving about it because they’re getting 50% of your subscription, then it’s not a good sign.
The Discord Server
The entire course is based within one single Discord server – which is just kind of weird if you ask me. It seems more like a private discussion group rather than a legit course.
This is the same strategy used by people like Tai Lopez, Stock VIP, Netz Trades and other flashy influencers.
Discord is for gamers – not for high value information and training. Ironically, the whole team claims to hate gamers and calls them losers. Weird…
I immediately noticed the chat getting spammed, and there was barely any moderation at all.
Funny enough, some of the mods were just other paying students who had taken the job out of pride that Tate had chosen them to moderate his channel. He really is like a cult hero.
Discord is fantastic for live streaming to specific members, so you have a much more private and intimate communication format with your paying customers.
I think Tate chose Discord because his main demographic – young, shy, lost men – are probably very familiar with the platform and it’s an easy way for him to speak to everyone in a private setting (away from censors!). It’s actually pretty smart – why not reach them on a channel they’re already using? Each subject’s channel is moderated by a set of professors and it seems each channel is driven by ego.
Discord just makes it hard ot learn everything. It’s so disorganized. Have you taken a real course like the Amazing Selling Machine? It’s well structured with a heavily moderated group and everything is done by experts, not random kids who subscribe to the course.
I don’t doubt that plenty of students have had success with Tate’s teachings.
I do however doubt that the most successful students actually learned their top skills from the course. Sure, they can screenshot something like “I just made $3,000 in one trade”! OK, but how many have you lost? How much money did you start with? Where did you learn trading?
I’m always wary of anything that talks about mindset rather than real, palpable tips.
The most successful students all get their money from one place: PROMOTING THE COURSE ITSELF.
That’s a massive red flag. Most of the results are from moderators and admins.
Tate is basically taking free online information, repackaging it in Discord, then convincing you that the world is against you and you need his training to break free.
It’s genius marketing, but not my style.
I’m also not a fan of of cheesy names like moneybag Madden…just seems childish.
Also, I saw some positive reviews of Andrew’s cold email training, but it’s mostly just a rip off of Cold Email Mastery. I’m surprised there hasn’t been a lawsuit. And if you really want to learn skills like copywriting, SEO, eCom, or Amazon, there are way better courses out there.
I have yet to see one actual student who’s made millions, despite Tate and co. claiming they’re everywhere. If you really want to earn passive income online, I suggest looking elsewhere.
The Pricing 2024
Hustlers University costs $49.99/month plus taxes and fees where applicable. Tate even goes so far as to say “it’s only $50 brokies”.
But $50 a month for a year is $600, which could easily pay for LEGIT training in online skills. You could build the foundations of a legit business with that money rather than learning the basics.
I might pay like $10-$20 for this course, but definitely not $50 a month. Almost all of it could be found for free.
So, while it’s definitely not a scam, it’s definitely not a high-level course. Tate also claims that the price is going up soon, so it may end up being $75 – $100 a month or more.
Verdict – Should You Join?
In the end, I think No, you should not join Hustlers University.
It’s not that it’s bad. It’s just that I think there are more valuable courses out there, and better ways to build a legit business.
You shouldn’t try to learn the basics of a bunch of different skills – you should focus on one thing.
Build an FBA business or a freelancing business – but build just one thing.
Andrew Tate claims he can teach anyone to make money online then grow their wealth, but it’s not true. But I don’t see much evidence that Tate has actually earned any money from these skills that he teaches. And the other professors don’t seem very qualified either.
My main issue is that Tate spends way too much time focusing on how the system is rigged against you rather than teaching skills. Building strawmen like that is always a red flag.
And most of what he teaches can be learned for free elsewhere. Not only is it $50 a month, you’ll also need to actually spend money ot build your business like getting a website, hosting, ads, and god knows what else.
Long story short, if you’re really serious about earning money online, get a legit high-level course. Not one that teaches multiple unrelated topics.
Is Hustlers University legit? Kind of but not really.
It is now closed but there used to be an affiliate program where the first 5,000 students could recommend the program and get a 50% commission. This is how Tate got so popular.
