Invite You to Join a 5-Day Live Event
“How do I connect with anyone, anytime, anywhere? (Without getting stuck in the small talk loop…)”
. . .so what are “advanced” social skills?
If you've ever:
- Felt like your social circle was holding you back (because you have different values and goals)
- Struggled to get past “small talk” (Because you don’t know what to say after “What do you do?” or “Where are you from?”)
- Wanted to VIBE with ANYONE in the room (even if you’re slightly introverted)
Advanced social skills are the subtle nuances that school didn’t teach you about human behavior, psychology, and emotional intelligence.
It’s why some people seem to “connect” with everyone, have a powerful network, and are happy in their relationships.
Some guys develop these skills early in life, some guys a bit later and, some guys never learn it.
Hey there! I’m AJ Harbinger of The Art of Charm
I’ll be honest…
I was a bit a dork growing up…
I had a science book in my hand by age 6…
I played basketball & football in high school, but never excelled athletically, more so academically
I was raised by a hard-working single dad…
Of course, I picked up my social development from him... He had a small social circle so it wasn’t the best place to learn how to make friends. And to be honest, I probably picked up several BAD habits.
During school, I was a little introverted so I kept to my tribe...
When I graduated college my social circle started to dwindle…
But it wasn’t until I got to grad school that I saw how my poor social skills were affecting my relationships in the lab.
In my mind, I felt I was doing and saying the right things. It turns out others felt I was cold & arrogant... What?!
I couldn’t believe it.
I needed to fix this…
So I started researching how to make a better first impression & how to connect with people in a meaningful way.
I discovered a rabbit hole of info.
That led me to ask...
Why did it take my google-fu skills to discover all this? How come they don’t teach this stuff in school?
Most people think, if you’re not naturally gifted socially... you’re out of luck...
That. Is. WRONG.
So I began my quest to develop these skills. I even started a podcast to document my findings and progress.
It was through this quest that I met Johnny... a literal rockstar (guitar player in a rock band) who was on a similar journey.
His confidence and authenticity was contagious.
Together we scoured the earth and back...packaged up all our science & research on advanced social skills and put it into the only premier training you’ll find in the world.
You know what else we found?
These skills aren’t instinctual. People aren’t “born charismatic”.
They are coachable. And anyone can learn them.
Are you ready to understand human interaction on a whole new level?
Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of everyone around you and cultivate a new network of high value people?
In five days flat, I’ll turn you into a Social Machine.
YOU will discover how to talk to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
YOU will become a high-value person who attracts other high performers and fosters relationships with them.
YOU will unlock access to a network of alumni who are well connected and like-minded, like you.
By doing what you were born to do:
Connecting with people.
And by attending Bootcamp, you will walk away with a network of people who will help hold you accountable as you re-enter your life with these new skills.
Within 5 days, you can go from “living safe & settling” to:
Everything you know about connecting with people is WRONG, and we’re spilling the truth at The Art Of Charm Bootcamp. Here’s a preview…
#1. If networking feels “icky”, (just hours of small talk...who wants that?) well you aren’t doing it right.
We had a student named David who was never able to bond with his co-workers. David was a hard worker and after 2 years with his company, was given a leadership role for a project. This freaked him out a little...When he was doing solo projects he would always exceed expectations. But now he had a team to lead. A team whom he’d never formed real relationships with. At AoC bootcamp we taught him a skill based on Dr. John Gottman’s research called emotional bids. Emotional bids occur in conversation all the time. They are the mechanism we use to transition out of small talk and into meaningful conversations. But most of us miss them, or don’t know what they look like.
David’s worry was that he would come off disingenuous because he had never shown interest in his team before...but NOW that he had this new leadership role he was “all the sudden” interested in connecting with them. He was afraid they’d see this attempt as “icky” and self-serving. But that was the furthest thing from the truth. We taught him how to identify & respond to their emotional bids to build strong relationships.
With this new skill set, he was able to gain the respect of his entire team as their leader. They ended up crushing the project.
#2. NOBODY is “out of your league”.
Dennis was a student who felt there was no one attractive to meet in his city...He lived in Toronto (which is basically the NYC of Canada) so when Dennis told us this problem we challenged him a little. We ended up identifying that he labeled women he wanted as “out of his league”. This mental block of putting them in a “league” outside his own blinded him to noticing women he wanted. He never had the charisma or charm to be magnetic so he would always overlook any opportunity to meet them.
After Bootcamp, he went back to Toronto and was blown away by all the opportunities to meet and connect with attractive women. We gave him the skill set to be charismatic, confident, and magnetic so he could connect with ANYONE around him. Upon sharpening those skills he started noticing more and more women that used to be out of his league were now reachable.
#3. If you feel like you’re giving a great first impression, but still getting negative feedback... you may be missing something.
Dr. Robert was one of our previous students & a successful physician in NYC. He thought he had a great first impression, but would always have trouble connecting with the other doctors and nurses in the hospital. This was confusing to him because he had great bedside presence with his patients. So he always assumed his first impression was great. When we did our exercise around video work (which allows you to watch your own body language) he realized he carried the stress of his job in his upper body which made him appear intimidating. This often caused his coworkers to walk on eggshells around him. When he noticed this it shocked him & he corrected his first impression instantly. He was able to carry that back home to his patients, fellow doctors, & nurses. His relationships with everyone at work skyrocketed.
This was the missing piece...and the best part? This trickled over to his dating life, too. Robert is a tall, handsome, successful doctor but would always have trouble getting to the second or third date. After Bootcamp, he was getting second dates left and right because he was able to connect immediately. He also noticed his patients felt at ease with him MUCH FASTER than before. This was a big deal because his mission as a cardiologist is to change the paradigm of heart health. Instead of prescribing pills for every problem he is encouraging people to change their diets.
This is tough news to deliver to patients who don’t want to change their lifestyle and would rather take a pill. If you want to convince people of something they have to trust you instantly. So now that his first impression was fixed, his whole life seemed to get easier and things start clicking for him.

Past Attendees Describe It Even Better Than I Can
“Signing up for the AoC Bootcamp has been my greatest investment to improve myself and change my life. I gained so much confidence in my ability to connect and deepen my relationships with people. It’s amazing how much easier it has been to meet new people and create instant connections. I have the exact same personality, the only thing that has changed is my mindset and a few behaviors.
Since taking Bootcamp, my social life has been the busiest and happiest it’s ever been…new friends and dates every week, getting invites to parties, trips, or social outings. Thanks to what I’ve learned, I’ve had awesome people approach me at all kinds of venues.
I am so grateful to the coaches during the program for their guidance, great energy, and patience in teaching me the skills we needed to accomplish our goals. If they were not by my side while doing the exercises, I wouldn’t have made this much progress.
I would recommend the Bootcamp to anyone who is ready to step up their game in life.“
– Moise A.
“I was super hesitant about AoC because it seemed like a big investment. I had done other workshops with other so-called ‘coaches’ and, while they were kind of helpful, they didn’t really make any lasting change. However, when it came to meeting people and managing relationships, I wasn’t getting anywhere on my own and needed to do something. The AoC Bootcamp turned out to be a ton of fun and gave me just what I was looking for.
The guys in my program were awesome and the instructors were great at both pushing me well past my comfort zone and providing encouragement if I got overwhelmed. After AoC, I went on more dates and met more amazing people in the two months following my program than I had in the two years prior. It’s a great feeling to know that on any given day I can walk up to anyone on the street, in a coffee shop, or wherever and have a good shot at forming a connection.”
– Brian M.
“The AoC taught me about 98% of what I was hoping it would. I’m now attracting more higher-quality people into my life, I’m more confident in any social environment, and I have much better body language and non-verbal communication. I now really look forward to my nights out and crazy stuff seems to be happening all the time.
One thing that really exceeded my expectations on the course was how much fun I had. The coaches were awesome and they made me process that I was fearful of... fun. The five days flew by and before really realizing it, I had all these new skills under my belt — skills that are going to be invaluable for the rest of my life.”
– Will E.

“The Art of Charm seemed like it was just a more higher level, more grown up version of everything else out there.”
"There's a lot of other boot camps and similar programs out there, but the content that came out of the podcast was always more authentic. It wasn't tricks or hacks or anything like that. It seemed to be from more genuine standpoint - the better way to become a man or a person.
The Art of Charm seemed like it was just a more higher level more grown up version of everything else out there. It seemed like everyone else was more interested in doing infield pickups and the Art of Charm is really not that. It's part of it but it's just a piece of it, the total package.
I went in with a pretty open mindset. I really didn't have that high expectations. I knew I was going to get something out of it, but what we got ... Just how the days progressed, the lectures, working with the other guys and an immersion into the whole thing. It was amazing how it all came together that last night. Just to see the growth in myself and everybody else that we went through the program with.
The Boot Camp gave me a different way of looking at things. One of my big takeaways was how everybody goes through life in auto-pilot mode. We have to be leaders and snap ourselves and people out of that auto-pilot mode. Life is too short to go through life with a frown on your face and being unhappy and not being your true authentic self.
It's probably been about a few months since I ended my program. One thing I discovered is this is all a learnable skill.You get a lot out of the program, but a big part of it was meeting up with other people once you're out of the program and just putting the stuff into practice whether it's to be going to random events and just going by yourself or going with the other alumni, and having that attitude that we're going to go out together and we're going to practice this stuff. You may not have good success at first but we're going to get better and better at this."
– Lane K.
“My favorite part of the program was the tailored feedback.”
“When I made the decision to attend an AoC program, my choice would change my life forever. I am so much more confident in my ability to attract and connect with both men and women. The coaches were amazing! My favorite part of the program was the tailored feedback; I grew by leaps and bounds each day because of the coach and peer feedback.
I am not scared about going out anymore or even worried about messing up. The AoC team has created the perfect atmosphere for people to feel comfortable with failing. I now look forward to when I fail because of the huge returns and lessons that come from it. Take a program and see for yourself how you can bring out the real you. This is an experience you will never forget!”
– Steve W.
“It’s an investment in your social skills, in self-reflection, and the ability to open up.”
“I’ve come to realize that the best investment you can make is not in a house, a car or any other material thing, but in yourself. AoC is an investment in your social skills, in self-reflection, and the ability to open up, to name just a few.
It is a heap of fun; you will meet cool people and the instructors genuinely care about seeing you succeed because, after all, they went through the same process. Sure, you will be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone, but that’s all part of the fun and adds to the feeling of exhilaration when you begin to achieve your goals!”
