Hiring a Guru

Does anyone have recommendations on hiring someone to teach me how to run my box?

I've been open for about six years and have done fairly well but I am now struggling with some issues in my box. I have tried working with one guy through his online coaching program but he spoke so far above my head I had no clue what to do. I won't name names...

I have another guy who is willing to come out for three days to help me get everything in order and firing on all cylinders but I want to make sure I am spending my money wisely.

Any recommendations on someone to bring in? Thanks!

Re: Hiring a Guru

Organizational change takes time. I wouldn't look for a quick hit. Look for someone who can walk you through things step by step. I think you have a better chance for success with 1 or 2 hours a week for a year then 3 day crash course.

Just like 1 pound lost a week, doesn't seem fast enough for some of our members, it equals 52 at the end of the year. 1 change/improvement a week for a year equals 52 areas/things running better.

Re: Hiring a Guru

Hey Casey,
We've used Tye from The Affiliate Solution. He's brilliant. Speaks right to your needs, is direct and to the point with a no bull way he presents his stuff. The advice he teaches is something you can take away and instantly start putting into place. He runs 2 day seminars that are very cost effective and also can spend some time at your box one on one which is more expensive but worth it.
He's aussie but is running seminars in the USA all the time. He's there now!
Check him out at
Also follow him on Facebook as he gives away heaps of free content.
