Here’s another fake guru (Codie Sanchez) sleight of hand:
– “Hey, look over here! Buy small businesses like car washes, dry cleaners, etc., and become a multi-millionaire like me!”
– “How do you do it? Simple! Buy my $1497 course. And $1497 yearly membership. And a $1497 ticket to my two-day conference.”
Gurus make you feel stupid for not being a millionaire yet (“it’s so simple once you know this one weird trick”). Then they prey on the false hope that they have the solution.
The people I know who make real money don’t go around teaching people how to do it. They are too busy making money.
