I again blocked a friend's attempt to join him in overthinking. Yes, it seems he got into a "analysis paralysis" which prevented him from achieving success in online marketing, for years!

Several times he attempted to engage with me into a Socrates-like or Plato-like debate over Messenger where he showed devotion to Perry Marshall mentioning the guru's price of $39,000. But since I felt so lazy reading even the introduction of Perry's sales page, I brushed the invitations aside.

I told him, "Bro, don't over complicate things. I don't like evangelists using Latin or Greek terminologies. Salvation is simple, why complicate it?" Perhaps, I said that because I know there are trainings online that can teach what Perry Marshall is teaching at a lower price or even in a more simple style.

I just hate gurus who rever to themselves like they're gods. And I hate seeing someone put such kind of price tag when you can just learn online marketing for free or for a small fee here in WA, in Hubspot, in Affilorama, or even in Youtube!

Or, did I miss something? Have I gone so stupid in making all these statements? Or, maybe I'm just a human being who doesn't like losing more hairs overthinking things like a monk.

What do you think of him?

Perry Marshall has overpriced himself. I love this platform much better.

Yeah, the idea is that if you charge more, you are worth more. That logic was thrown out of the window a long time ago, but some didn't adapt to the Internet and still feel that they are better off taking advantage of a few people, versus offering value to many more. :)

To each their own though, I have never been one to over pay for education, in fact I am of the class that believes that real life application is where most of the education actually takes place.
