Business investing gurus
People and organisations giving business investing advice
This section’s for you if you’re thinking about starting or investing in a business and are looking for expert help.
If you want a broader overview of aspects of a business, go first to Strategies and Topics or Analysts and Commentators.
In general, the gurus listed below give information and advice on business investing (not financial planners, see how to choose them and industry rating and review sites in the BiG Directory). They mostly use their favourite method or strategy and don’t compare other investing choices like Analysts and Commentators might.
Business Investing ‘Guru Cops’
These specific watchdogs are people or organisation who can protect you, save you time, and protect your money, and you, from yourself! They provide useful investing guidelines on how to start, what to look out for (scams alerts), articles and other help.
In Guru Cops there are many more of these watchdogs who regulate others in money and finance and industries broadly.
Using business lists for finding people 'successful' in business, management and leadership
If you Google the ‘top 50 people in business, management and leadership’ you’ll get lists such as:
- The Australian’s Top 50
- A comprehensive list (mostly USA) of The Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts
In The Strange Nature of Lists, Chris Brogan (on the list) warns ‘try never to be swayed by lists of this nature… I’m still working hard and won’t stop until I’m on the list I most want to occupy: ‘People Who Equipped Me For Success’, and only you can write that list’.
Here are Steve Jobs’ insights on success form 3 perspectives, ‘Trust; Love and Loss; and Death’, Stanford Commencement Speech 2005.
Checking out Business people | MoneySmart (ASIC) and The Checkout

Business Investing Gurus …
The individuals and companies in the table below claim they’re experts in business or building businesses. Under BiG’s Traffic Light™ rating system, they’re given a red, yellow or green rating.If I get any positive or negative information about them (send yours), they may be re-rated to a different colour.
Note: The ‘about’ column says “They/He/She claims” quoting their marketing blurb, because I’d hate to misrepresent or misquote their claims and unless I’ve explicitly done so, I don’t endorse them.
