Seminars include diagnostics, gendered advice on how to approach and offers lines and text messages tailored to various situations. The $10,000/hr price tag on his one-on-one coaching has attracted media attention and even controversy. His movie-star looks are often partly credited for the enthusiasm of his numerous female followers.
Get the Guy is a family business managed by Hussey's father Steve Hussey. Hussey's brother Stephen often appears on videos on Hussey's YouTube channel and writes content for Hussey's site.
Hussey's advice to women includes approaching men on the street and in cafés rather than just at bars and to always look their best even on mundane outings. He encourages women to set their standards, be confident but challenging and have a fulfilled life to attract men. He helps women face the challenges of technology-driven dating. He advises that women approach men by asking for a favor.
