BEWARE: Most of So Called Gurus Today Are Scammers and Liars!By Edison On June 12, 2011 Under Personal Insights
The teaching and coaching industry is one of the most lucrative business today. That’s why so called GURUs are arising anywhere and everywhere. But always make your due diligence because most of the so called GURUs today are scammers and liars. Don’t just get fooled on what they offer. They will say a lot of promises and at the end they will under deliver it. You pay for a very expensive training or system and yet it’s nothing but just a worthless thing without any value you can find.
Find a GURU that over deliver value and make under promise. Don’t just throw your hard earned money on them! Always look for value, value, value, and research the worth of the value they are providing.
Here are some guidelines before you buy a training system to a GURU:
- Make sure their communication are open to their student
- They should be very transparent to their student
- If problem arises make sure they are very transparent say the problem and ask for an apology immediately
- Find a social proof such as testimonies or media appearances
- They should offer a FREE value first before you buy to them such as FREE report, eBooks, manual, audio and video trainings, etc.
- They must have a proven system or formula that already created results on their student.
- Make sure their price is greater or equal to the value they give
- Make sure they have detailed handout of their curriculum or module
What if the Guru or Mentor is just starting out on helping other people?
- You make sure that his/her price is greater or equal to the value he/she if offering
- You can also weigh his/her value through his/her free report, ebooks, manual, audio and video training he/she is offering
- His/her social proof are the people around him/her. Check out his name on Google, Facebook or some social networking site.
I heard a lot of bad report about the so called GURUs today. They will charge you a very high fee training system without offering value first. Or sometimes under deliver of the system you are expecting so in the end you are not satisfied.
Always make you due diligence first before buying into their system.
P.S.: One more thing! most of paid GURUS don’t treat their student as client they treat them like BANK!
