I recently decided to take the ClickFunnels One Funnel Away Challenge after seeing tons of glowing reviews. The premise of the challenge is that they asked all of their two comma club winners (those who have made over a million dollars through ClickFunnels) what they would do over the next thirty days from a marketing standpoint if they lost virtually everything, and then compiled a thirty-day challenge where we would be challenged to do exactly that.

So, am I now a bazillionaire with more money than I can spend a few weeks after completing the challenge?

Alas, no. By the time I paid for the challenge, paid for advertising, paid for the complete suite with ClickFunnels which includes the ability to set up affiliates, and bought stuff to sell, I had invested quite a good chunk of cash. Unfortunately, I have yet to fully recover it, but I do see some of it coming back already.

It's probably worth noting that you don't have to buy all of those things. You can get a free trial for ClickFunnels by clicking here which is all you really need for the class. The other things I did because the challenge pumped me up and I wanted to take things to the next level.

Do I feel like it was worth it?

Do I feel like it was worth it? Well, that's a different question.


I've been through a lot of marketing and sales training over the last 40+ years, and this was without question the best training I've ever been through. It's cheap too in comparison to the thousands of dollars that most worthwhile classes run. It's not for the faint of heart though, expect to spend several hours nearly every day to get through it.

One of my favorite quotes in training was, “If you can't be the cheapest, there's no point in being the second cheapest.” The point that they drove home over and over and then showed us how to do was that you need to build up the value you are delivering rather than trying to reduce your price. In today's day and age where you are competing against free, there's a lot to be said for that.

 If you can't be the cheapest, there's no point in being the second cheapest.

I feel like I've got a solid online business set up at this point, which I didn't truly have before I started. Beyond that, I've accomplished my initial goal, which was to help get the word out about our workout challenge which is designed to teach healthy habits and hopefully save some lives.

The first day I turned the funnel that I created during the challenge on, I had someone buy the t-shirt and welcome kit, and within a week or two already had a hundred people signed up. If you've ever tried to launch something new, you know that it's pretty common to have no one sign up at first, so that's pretty exciting. I saw multiple people in the private group hit the one comma club before the end of the thirty days, meaning they had already made more than a thousand dollars.

I think the best part is that I'm now part of a group where there are people who are in the 8 figure club, those who have done more than ten million dollars in business through ClickFunnels. Those are pretty good people to know.


If you are looking for a quick way to become a millionaire in the next thirty days starting with nothing, you're most likely going to be disappointed by this challenge, or with any training that makes promises like that. Building a business can be very rewarding, but it is hard work, and anyone who tells you otherwise is simply not being completely honest with you.

If you're ready to roll up your sleeves, put in a lot of hard work, invest money in setting up your online business properly, and learn some really great sales and marketing material that should provide a solid return over time, this challenge will give you a big bang for your buck.

If you're interested in taking the challenge, click here. This challenge only runs every so often though and I'm not sure how long they'll continue doing it, so if you want to take it, I suggest that you don't wait too long. Good luck!
