Since the day I composed this was Sunday, a day traditionally reserved for matters of the spirit, a somewhat different message than the typical Doberman Dan fare.
I started selling online in late 1996. Those were the pioneer days of online marketing.
In fact, I was the first person in the bodybuilding market to use a URL as a call to action in full-page magazine ads.
Thanks to being a part of this crazy online marketing stuff since the very beginning, I’ve seen the full progression of the “Internet Marketing” thang. Including all the rookies who anointed themselves “gurus” and started selling “Internet Marketing” courses and coaching.
By the way, it’s called “Internet Marketing” for reasons I still don’t understand. Because it’s not really “Internet Marketing.” It’s actually biz-op.
Anyhoo… I’ve seen millions made by these gurus.
I’ve also seen herds of initiates and numberless truth seekers constantly misled by following these false lights.
For a price, these pseudo-teachers offer their students initiation into the mysteries of Internet Marketing, promising them guidance into easy riches. Because these guys (very, very few are women) understand that man’s weakness for leaders — as well as his worship of idols — makes him easy prey.
In many cases, they’re just posers selling advice about something they’ve never successfully done.
In other words, according to the ex-street cop in me who still occasionally pokes his head up, it’s a fraud.
However, good can still come to many of these defrauded followers. Sure, most will give up on their dream and quit, disappointed and lamenting their lost time and money.
On the other hand, a few will eventually discover — after years of waiting and sacrificing — that they were following a mirage.
They’ll get disillusioned with their “gurus” and false prophets… and this disappointment will be worth all the effort and all the money they paid for their fruitless search.
Because they’ll finally turn from their worship of man and discover this:
What they’re seeking is not to be found in another… because… “the Kingdom of Heaven is within.”
This realization will be their first REAL initiation into the truth…
There’s only one true guru… and that guru is within themselves.
Stop looking for the guru to come… because… “I AM with you always even unto the end of the world.”
All the best,
P.S. I’ve been saying this for over a decade:
I’m not your guru.
However, the intelligent and savvy marketers — of which there are very, very few — can learn a heck of a lot from me. Stuff that’ll get you much closer to your goals, much faster.
