Daniel S. Peña Sr.
After service in the US Army in which he left as an officer in 1969, he received a BS degree in Business Administration from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) in 1971.
He grew up in a small “barrio” in Los Angeles and was thrown in jail five times for crimes that were “alcohol-related,” but he managed to turn his life around by taking $820 and building it into a $450 million fortune in eight years’ time after taking his oil company public.
Peña has started coaching, inviting mentees (a person who is advised, trained, or counseled by a mentor.) who pay $15,000 into his castle in Scotland to learn the Quantum Leap Advantage (QLA), a method he says he used to build his own tremendous wealth. Why such a steep price, you ask? Well, it’s not steep according to Peña, as he claims QLA mentees have built more than $50 billion in equity and value from learning his secrets. For that sort of exorbitant return though, mentees shouldn’t expect his seminar to be a walk in the park — people have been rumored to piss and sh*t themselves going through the experience.
Peña is also known to be completely uncensored. Brian Rose of London Reel was a recent attendee at one of Dan’s seminars, and he recounted some of the things Pena said during the very first day:
“You f*cking CUNTS are weak and unaccomplished, which is why you are here in the first place. But all that changes tomorrow when we go deep and find out why Mommy and Daddy didn’t love you. Guess what? I don’t give a SHIT why! When you leave here you won’t have an action plan, you will have a WAR PLAN. And I NEVER leave a man behind.”
“And don’t do any of that networking bullshit, that’s for losers. You are here to work on yourself…”I don’t want to see any business cards or electronic messages. When I see you guys swapping spit, my dick goes limp.”
“I could easily kill three of you myself, or at least two of you with my bad hip. So if anyone wants a piece just let me know. And if I see any phones or laptops I WILL FUCKING BREAK THEM.”
Even while pushing 70 years of age, Dan Peña is hardcore.
He’s hunted live buffalo, bears and boars and killed them with nothing but a handgun and a knife — their heads are proudly displayed on his wall. Peña lives in a badass castle out in Scotland with butlers who constantly tend to him, he has maids who travel with him everywhere, and he’s a U.S. Army veteran.
In 2016, Peña publicly endorsed Donald Trump for president. On May 2, 2016, the Opportunity Charter School in Harlem, New York rescinded its offer for Peña to speak in the school due to his endorsement of Donald Trump.
