What Those Who Can’t Do Do.
IF YOU CAN’T SUCCEED, GIVE THE INTERNET A TRY.
Just like my Uncle Charlie used to say, just before he sprung the trap: He said, “You can’t cheat an honest man. Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump.― W.C. Fields
Living on an island far away from most of the cares of the big, wide world is often idyllic, sometimes repetitive…but on occasion it’s a little comical, too.
In most lines of work there is some sort hierarchy of spiritual and social nobility: the great, the near great, the average, the near average and sometimes, just the idiotic. My field is no different. Social media is often responsible for allowing the last group to have equal footing with and be given equal airtime to the first.
Not long ago we noticed a guy, who once owned a failed fitness business in town, touting his new online course purporting to teach the gullible: “What you need to do to succeed in the fitness business”. Who better to give advice on how to do it, right? And the best part? You can learn his secret from wherever you are in the world for only £99!
He starts out with ” I am so-and-so, Trainer To The Stars and Famous Sports Teams, etc., etc.” H’s uploaded quite a dodgy photo of Arnold doing a selfie with him in the background throwing a double biceps (well, isn’t that what you pay your entry ticket and stand in long lines at trade shows for, or is it just bad Photoshop?). Also, something about this being evidence of Arnold’s endorsement. All of this, of course, is complete HOGWASH. He is just some failed wannabe fitness guy from a small island. The internet has a lot to answer for.
Today, we hear of another individual, who lives locally and looking suspiciously like the handsome gentleman pictured in the cover photo of today’s blog. This gentleman is giving online classes on how to lose weight. We reckon that he should probably stick with his day job.
We also don’t know if this particular guru is asking for any payment in exchange for the valuable information that he is ready to shove down our throats , or just giving it away…whatever…one sometimes gets what he is willing to pay for, often he gets a lot less…
