I hear you and I see you Jason! I have often thought that if advice is so good, why must we charge for it? Do the writers want to help people and change the status of the world…or…do it only if they can make a buck? Same with religion sometimes.

Well, it’s a sticky question and I think the answer for me is “do what you love, do it well and the money will follow.” That hasn’t worked for everyone and frankly, I would starve if I adopted that. Or, is it that I don’t really believe I’m capable, I’m not enough, so to speak. It can get awfully confusing, even for self-proclaimed Guru’s eh?

I will say that I have adopted a stance that there really isn’t anything new in terms of information. Effectiveness seems to be in the presentation. You know, the “form and content” argument. What most of today’s ‘Guru’s” seem to be really good at is understanding the content and repackaging it into a form that attracts its audience.

Your story was thought-provoking and confirms the internal work that so many of us have to do, to be honest, open, and authentic.

Thank you for your experience.
