Netflix’s The Trust: A Game of Greed, which premiered on the streaming giant on Thursday, January 10, and appears to be a mix of the reboot of The Mole‘s deception and Squid Game The Challenge‘s ruthlessness. Episode 1 “House Of Lies” introduced all of the eleven competitors looking to collect some or all of the $250,000 prize. However, despite some secrets being revealed, not a lot was shared about the contestants. So, let’s take a closer look at The Trust cast members’ bios.

Before becoming a rancher, Brian worked in healthcare. However, it looks like he changed career paths when the compensation wasn’t very good. Brian also posts longer form videos on YouTube, but he only had 612 subscribers as of writing.
“I am a full-time rancher and unfortunately we have not grown to the point that I can hire a cowboy so I am the cattleman, I am the cowboy, I am the cattle hauler, I am the farmer,” the retired marine said on the show.
“My biological father, he had a thing with money. He used to steal. That is why I try to be truthful, try to be honest, and I try to be exceedingly loyal. Because if I’m not, I’m more just like my father.”

It can be challenging to sell coaching because your prospect has to belive two things: 1. That your methodology works 2. That they, as a regular human, beleives they will actually implement what your asking them to do. You’re missing out on coaching program enrollments if you depend on rapport to sell your programs. My advice: Implement a stratgey for these enrollment calls that guide your prospect through the gap of where they are to where they want to be. Through the right questions get the prospect to sell themselves. #onlinecoach#onlinecoachingbusiness#salescalls#coachingonline#businesscoachingforwomen#salesstrategy

And Harry’s always coming on to Chris, and Chris won’t have any of it. Chris is a ponytail palm. [Laughing]. See. you really think I’m crazy now, but I’ve met crazier than me. I have,” she said early on in the show.
“I think because that I’m unemployed and a single mom still supporting myself and my two kids, people will probably assume that I’m desperate for that money that’s in that trust, and that might make me a target. So there’s some motivation there for them to get rid of me.”
