Invest in YOU gurus
Time to invest in you? Something not working in your life? Time for some changes?

Personal investment, self help and other gurus

These guys give advice on how you can make changes to yourself and your life


This section’s different to the other 4 more money related ones, because it’s about investing in you. Because that’s such a personal, subjective thing, I’ve only rated a few of the gurus.

In Investing in You Strategies and Topics you’ll find more of the great thinkers, ideas and tools I’ve come across that might also help you be happier and more successful.

Why not get started ticking off your bucket list – today? I’ve held the hands of too many sick or dying patients, family and friends – many regretting what they hadn’t, not what they had done. Don’t leave it too late and miss out on life, making changes and experiences.

Are there things you want to do? Changes you’d like to make, but are putting off?
Maybe now’s the time. Covid 19 has changed life as we know it, maybe you’ve experienced a loss, illness, death, divorce or other life changing event?

I hope the stories, ideas and sites I’ve shared here are credible, but unfortunately opportunists often make false claims and fabricate. Often government and non government watchdogs (Guru Cops) can’t keep up with them.  

You can fact check claims on sites like Snopes, who claim to be ‘the definitive internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumours and misinformation’.

I’d love to hear your stories or experiences with any of these ‘gurus’so feel free to contact me through the chat box or by email.

Personal Investment, Self Help Gurus …

The individuals and companies you come across and see in the table below claim they’re gurus in self development, coaching and mentoring. Their qualifications and experience often vary greatly. Under BiG’s Traffic Light™ rating system, they’re rated red, yellow or green. There are links to articles and anyone who has contrary ideas “Cons”, or others who support are agree with them “Pros” – people, forums, articles (any I can find). 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.
