This is a post that might cause some controversy. To be honest however, I don’t care because the message here is so strong that I can’t worry about certain people’s egos being hurt.
It is a topic that is close to my heart. Not only because it affects a good friend of mine, but it also affects all of you out there who struggle from day to day, trying to make ends meet by paying your bills and feeding your family.
This post is about perceptions and deceit
A blogger many of us have come to know in the last 5 months or so has caused quite a stir in the blogosphere. The reason being is that he uses extensive foul language as some might call it and they take personal offense by this.
He swears, calls other bloggers out and is called an asshole in return.
But if you look way deeper
You will find that Vic Franqui of Blogger Unleashed is actually one of the few better known bloggers who really cares about you and me!
I say that again – Vic really cares about you and me, especially if you are a new blogger trying to make money on the Internet. Also, all the lost souls who have tried and failed, while being taken advantage from by the so called big gurus will really love Vic, once they put their egos aside and start to listen what Vic has got to say.
Vic has made many enemies since starting his new blog. Especially the gurus who all crap their pants because he is stirring up the pot. How do I know? Because I got warned off Vic from one of these gurus myself.
The person told me to be careful with Vic, so I turned around and said that Vic is actually one of the few persons I have ever come across on the web in terms of teaching us honestly how to make money. That was the end of that. And no, I won’t name the person in question due to email confidentiality.
I can just imagine what goes on behind firewalls and email servers.
Vic called out some of the big guys like Darren from Problogger and Yaro Starak and in case you are wondering why I don’t link to them, have a guess?
He also called out Caroline Middlebrook. Caroline isn’t a big guru at all. She simply has a huge list of blue eyed followers who get lead down the wrong track and Vic called her out on that.
But I’m not writing a post because of this. I’m writing this because people still perceive Vic as an asshole just because he swears. If they would take their blinders off however, they would see who really gives the right advice. They would see who really does care for their success and well being.
They would also see that Vic is passionate about integrity and honesty and that is why he is like he is.
Look beyond the obvious and see the truth
If you really think that Vic is dishonest, an asshole and just out to get you because your name is (insert your favorite guru/scammer here) or whatever, look closer and you will see the real Vic and why he does what he does.
People couldn’t come more honest and with more integrity than Vic does! It’s simple really. I know, because I also got lead down the wrong track from all these so called gurus who enjoy stardom for scamming people off. Before all of you “gurus” crack the shits with me I’d like to say that there are also some really good guys under you of which I know several. Unfortunately, these gurus have the power to destroy the most and create the biggest irreparable damage.
And yes, they do scam because all they are interested in is making money off unsuspecting blood (freshlings), bloggers like you who are searching for the “holy grail” of Internet marketing.
These guys don’t send you a Skype message at 11PM asking how you are going and whether you need help in your business. Hell no, these guys wouldn’t even bother talking to you on Skype. All they are concerned with is to count their money and crack jokes with their best buddies who happen to be “other gurus”.
Guys, I have been online long enough to smell a fish or a rat and believe me, there are plenty of dead fish in the ocean of the net, victims of make belief success.
If you want to make money online, stop winging and look no further!
For all those who already make money, you are exempt from this last sentence.
I’m just disgusted that people can’t see a good thing when they look at it. It beats me. So what, he swears – don’t we all at some stage? And even if you don’t, look beyond this and read into the actual message he is trying to convey.
