  1. The best guy I’ve found for advice that works is Stu at I’m a trainer (have been training for 3 years) and I was looking for ways to increase my income without a complicated “system” that costs a ton and doesn’t really work (I’ve taken some really expensive online courses before that sucked).

    Stu has a course too, but he also has a bunch of free articles that are very helpful.

    I ended up taking Stu’s course (only because he said he wouldn’t charge me for 30 days and I could cancel if I didn’t like it) and it was the information I’ve been looking for. I would call it a game changer. Check out his free stuff for sure and take the course if you think it would be right for you.
