He offers him the opportunity to change his life by attending his “Leap conference” as his guest. Josh really doesn’t want to, but Desmond sweetens the pot by offering him five grand if the technique they are teaching doesn’t work for him. He also makes him promise to suspend all judgment and try the process for 30 days. Josh reluctantly accepts the offer.
