Honesty and Consistency
It amazes me how many programs are out there promoting various schemes, if you’ll only pay $29.99 for this fantastic presentation, followed shortly by $199.99 for a 1 day seminar, then $3000 for a 3 day course. Ultimately, having paid thousands of dollars, you discover that what you were presented with was a collection of platitudes that have been well known for decades, and which have been well documented in books that are currently selling for $14.99 on Amazon.
What truly is amazing, though, is not the fact that such programs exist. There are no end to the number of people willing to make a buck by taking advantage of other people (the only people who make money in these systems are the ones selling the courses).
If, however, people would take the trouble to investigate these programs, they would discover something very simple – the programs themselves are a study in dishonesty and contradictions.
For example, it is well known that the greater the reward, the greater the risk. However, the corollary to this is that you might fail, ergo the risk. Yet, in many of these courses, that fact will be conveniently forgotten or glossed over. In fact, the extent of the risk itself might be so well hidden that the unwary audience can easily fall prey to losing everything they own.
Granted, people should do their own research before taking a risk. However, there’s no excuse for hiding the truth when presenting material for your own gain.
That’s the dishonesty, and the price paid for this can go well beyond the money paid for the courses.
The issue with consistency has to do with the fact that the promoters of these programs are salesmen, not business moguls. As such, the content they create is sub-par in general, which leads to contradictions in claims. Additionally, verification of any claims made will be limited, if they exist at all. This leads to a collection of material which is difficult to disseminate because it was not designed to be purchased, it was designed to be sold.
In a few days, I’ll be writing an article here that will guide you to making money online, and no, it won’t be a quick and easy system. But it will work, and it won’t cost you anything to read it. In fact, you don’t even need to sign up for a mailing list or anything like that – because this information is already public, and I have no need to take advantage of those who might not know where to find this information.
On a side note, if you have a program that you’re considering signing up for, and are curious as to its legitimacy, or the fairness of its price (there are many courses out there that ARE worth paying for), please send me some information about the program, and I’d be happy to give you some direction for your research.
