**You will probably have to turn up your volume!!***

Hi guys, although this is long overdue, I've been contemplating whether this was even worth uploading because I was scared of the backlash I'd receive. However, I decided to post this video to speak my truth about my experience working with Ronnie Banks as his client. I hope this could shed some light on the reality of how influencers can treat a person. Also, this is my experience and what I went through and I wanted to take this opportunity to share it with you guys.
Let me know your thoughts.

  • Honestly if you really wanna have this conversation you need to be as flexible as you can. Even on the way home, even if it means pushing your shower and getting ready time. Overall suggestions for future businesses. I’m a student and work but when it comes to business I become as flexible as I can specially when you paid 1000. Being an influencer means a lot of the things are not on schedule. I’m not personally one but I have friends.

  • I’m shocked. That’s so crazy .. let me just say, he painted that own image of himself when he first scammed you smh! You definitely were the professional one. Forget his girl’s opinion just tryna cover up Ronnie’s mess he started when she DM’d you through Twitter. Wow and the fact that he was quick to msg you about the non refundable steps... hmmm seems like he was quick to reply when it dealt with his “beta finance team” but then when it actually Came to working with you, took decades to reply.. just doesn’t sit right. He’s a scammer and don’t worry your story is not going unnoticed (:

  • Sorry for what happened to you and we’ll done for speaking up and sharing your truth. BUT you ain’t had to text him every step of your entire day 😭 i get why you did it but it’s a professional relationship so short responses like “free at 3” or “not free today, tomorrow at 4?” This gets narrows down the time frame and makes it easier to find a time. He ain’t gotta know you’re doing your makeup etc etc all of that is just distracting imo

  • Don’t blame yourself. He was very unprofessional on his part to be honest and should have taken initiative! I would be so pissed and I don’t know how you’re being so nice about it. When dealing with people like this don’t be so nice just because they are huge influencers. Get straight to the point with them and don’t let them make you feel like you’re below them. What an asshole, im unsubscribing! No wonder Jasmine was done with his childish shit

  • I don’t think you were wrong whatsoever for “pushing it” and reaching out to him because you paid that boy 1k. Maybe you should have taken initiative and been a little more motivated to accept his “call” the times he asked instead of saying you needed to do your makeup. BUT what he did was not right either. He didn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE that he wasn’t replying back to you and kept you waiting smh. He is very unprofessional. You are so sweet and this breaks my heart ❣️🥺 but I’m sure this video will give you the platform you needed lol 🙏🏽

    Lindsay EstradaLindsay Estradaپیش ماه
  • What he did is basically a scam. But then again, if you really were interested you could have answered his call and talked to him the day of the baby shower. Even the following day, yes you had family but a call wasn’t going to take up your whole day. Even Monday, when you said the morning and he told you if you could at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="90">1:30</a>, if you really wanted to you could have gotten ready earlier. No hate, but it’s all the excuses I heard from employees when I was a manager at this restaurant in a college town, meanwhile I was working full time and going to school full time along with raising my sister. Make time for stuff you want.

    Abigail EppersonAbigail Eppersonپیش ماه
    • Abigail Epperson Thank you for your constructive criticism. I understood that call wasn’t going to take all day but my time with my family is valuable especially when I rarely spend intimate time with them. Keep in mind this is the FIRST call which isn’t going to take 30 minutes. Ronnie needs to get to know me, my ambitions, and where to go from here. He also called me during HIS convenience when I already provided him a set time and schedule to when I’m available. I also informed him that I would be free at a later time which he never got back to me on. Also, I agree I could’ve definitely talked to him the day of the baby shower if he let me know prior that he would be calling. But again he called me in his convenience and specifically mentioned to me that he DOESNT take clients on weekends. It wouldn’t be fair if I called Ronnie during his baby shower so why couldn’t it be reciprocated with my family’s baby shower? These excuses are times when I was busy and i’ll definitely take full responsibility for not being able to drop everything in that moment. That’s why I prefer schedules times to do a call which we did schedule twice. Not only did I respect Ronnies time but I was completely understanding & transparent in this whole situation. Regarding the call at 1:30 I already informed him if we could schedule a call in the morning before I had to get ready for work. He called me again in his convenience to ask me if I was free. My source is from my tips so I do need time to get ready, commute, and plan out sections because I was the supervisor that day. These excuses are my responsibilities and times that I value especially because I work full time with being a full time student. I believe I tried my best in the situation especially because I’m the one paying for the service. Ronnie on the other hand failed to do so and never got back to me in timely manner and never got back to our scheduled calls. Thank you for your input Abigail. Take care love!

  • Dude how unprofessional I’ve heard so many stories of Ronnie being fake with his money transactions with fans like the “giveaways” he does the way he came at you with “see my prospective not only yours” was childish as fuck and just plain selfish. I guess that goes to show either he’s really money hungry and greedy or you just don’t make that much coin on IRproject as influencers put out to be 🤷🏻‍♀️ but whatever you put out to the universe comes back eventually if he slimey dirty shit will come back to him you did your part girl I think you handled everything very professionally and he was most definitely in the wrong.

  • Shit they do give aways and shit like that why can’t he just be like “im sorry you had to go through all this mess, since THEY can’t refund you the money ILL DO IT” like wtf $1000 isn’t shit for them and we can all agree. no instead he’s concerned about his reputation, maybe if he was really about wtf he said non of all this would of happened 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

  • Ronnie has always teeter-tootered between being likable. His persona is very narcissistic and I feel sorry that macky ended up with him. You did everything correctly and professionally. He was unprofessional and none of it was your fault. A profesional must always keep his meetings and he never reached out prior/after set meetings. You should not support such a fake character anymore.

  • Found this interesting Ronnie is my younger cousin.... He's still young and trying to find his way. He will make mistakes along the way I apologise on behalf of him. I myself have not seen him since I think his 20th birthday. He lightweight hurt my feelings when he unfollowed my son. My son was like 11 at the time so that was hard on him. We haven't been invited to any of his family shit although I don't care it's just interesting to me. The internet creates fake people he's just in that generation. My dad and his dad's mother are brother and sister so yes I'm real family. His dad took me to my first college party I looked up to his dad when I was younger. We shared a room at our Grandmother's crib. I can't even get ahold of the boy and we supposed to be related. Oh well it is what it is but that pissed me off about my son. Although I will say this when my daughter told people that he was her cousin at school they made her cry calling her a liar...I called his dad my older cousin to set up a meet so that they could take a picture for proof Ronnie's dad came through. It's just different generation. I still forever love him but I think the Fame has to be hard to deal with I guess benefit of the doubt.

    • Revenue TV yeah i definitely agree, that he’s still learning and fame can get to people. I’ve definitely learned from this situation and want to better myself from this experience and from everyone’s feedback. But I’m so sorry that you guys lost touch but those childhood memories will last forever. i’m sorry he unfollowed your son and i’m not sure what reasoning would be behind that, i’m gonna be honest and i think that’s pretty fucked up. i hope one day you guys will be able to rekindle and build that cousin relationship because like you said you’ll always have love for him since he’s family. thank you for taking the time to watch my video, take care! ❤️

  • It's all your fault!!! He didn't scam you ... All I hear is excuses coming out of your mouth. I've never heard of a mentor that has to work around ones schedule when they also got a life and is also a influencer. You were unprofessional from day one , when you stated oh I can't talk right now because I'm at dinner with my family. If you really wanted this and was hungry for it you could of taken time and let your family know I got a business call. Girl you put a baby shower in front of a career opportunity and you say he was disrespectful to you. You should of dropped everything at the moment and faced time him. You got way too many chances from him you don't have the drive for it. And a 1000 is a lot but next time don't jump the gun if you can't make the time for it.

    Diana CervantesDiana Cervantesپیش ماه
    • All I hear is the same excuses, if you really wanted it you would of got it done. You didn't have to bash on someone else's hustle because of your poor efforts. Your welcome love!

      Diana CervantesDiana Cervantesپیش ماه
    • Diana Cervantes Thank you for your constructive criticism. Yes, I will admit I have made some mistakes on my end and I wish I had the time to make this my number one priority. However, i had mentioned to Ronnie from the beginning that I am FULL time student and work 40+ hours a week. Those “excuses” that you think I made are responsibilities that I have in my life, just like Ronnie has a life and a job to cater to. That’s why professionally we should schedule calls where we are both available. Not just call during someones convenience, which is exactly what Ronnie did. Ronnie called me only during times when he was free and yes I will admit I did not have the time to accept that business call because that 30 minutes out of the dinner table with my family is more valuable to me because I rarely get intimate time with my family. If it were vice versus where I called Ronnie during his baby shower that would be disrespectful on my end so why can’t this be reciprocated at my family baby shower? Keep in mind that this is also our FIRST call where Ronnie is getting to know me, my ambitions, where to go from here, etc. This is just like a job interview and id rather be prepared and treat it exactly how it would be done professionally. Also, i understand the frustration of my busy schedule but also Ronnie is the one providing this program and he made the mistake of maybe having to many clients. Not only did I do my best to be transparent in this situation but i respected ronnies time and understood he had other responsibilities. Also, Ronnie and I did schedule two calls that he did not get back to me on. He blocked me and deleted all of our messages. I definitely understand this is a tough situation but I did my best to accommodate to this program because ultimately i’m the one paying for this service. I learned my lesson and I’m definitely growing and learning from my mistakes. Thank you for your input on my experience Diana. Take care love!

      Denise Delos ReyesDenise Delos Reyesپیش ماه
  • All I’m hearing is you reached out when it was convenient, when he would call you didn’t prioritize it. It’s not a friend asking to hang out, it’s a business opportunity that you’ve invested money in. During dinner you could’ve talked, in the car or even at the baby shower you could’ve taken 30 min to talk. Don’t complain when you’re not putting in the work.
