Shownotes and Resources

  • Great interview Timo. I have used my share of gurus. I would not say I am addicted, but I am like most bloggers. I am looking for success. I hate it when gurus sell me worthless products.

    I have learned it is better for me to learn on my own.

      Hi Michael!

      Sure, there are lots of junk out there. Then again, if I’m following someone it’s because his/her values resonate with mine.

      That’s a great indicator telling you, that this person is worth following.
