Guru Hustle: Why Aren’t More “Regular People” Selling YouTube Courses with Lambos in Them?

When those Internet “gurus” share that Lambo or laptop from the beach while inviting you to join them if “take this one course” or “attend this one webinar”, we all know they are selling a dream.

Why are you connecting with people who need a solution, who will pay you to solve their problem (employee/contractor) or to teach them how to solve a problem (coach/course/book)?

Because we think “Internet gurus” are special people…and that we’re just “average people”.
