There are tons of slimy “personal coaches” out there who are only interested in your credit card number.
And there are also tons of entrepreneurs who know how to stand in their value and are dedicated to changing the world while being compensated fairly for it.
Sometimes the line between those two things can be very fine. And sometimes the line is a matter of perspective: one man’s slime is another man’s ethical flexibility.
For coaches and other knowledge-based entrepreneurs who have built businesses, we have dealt with clients whose lives we changed for the better. And we have dealt with clients who weren’t a great fit for us and didn’t get the results we would have preferred they get.
That creates plenty of internal turmoil. We believe we’re not “fake gurus” – but do other people? Should their opinions on the matter even be considered? How can we stand with full confidence behind our product or service if we don’t maintain a 100% hit rate?
Are we just deluding ourselves into thinking that we’re helping people?
Join me and friend of the show Stephan Gardner on this week’s episode of Incremental Progress as we bring the truth and shine the light on what makes a “fake guru” and what makes the real deal.
