About Miles Beckler

Ever wonder if the world of "internet marketers" is just a cesspool of over-hyped "fake gurus" and hype peddlers…

Kinda seems like everyone is trying to sell you overpriced and underwhelming courses from their annoying webinars, right?

Ya, I feel that way, too… And I'm sick of it!

For 7 years straight, I was happy behind the scenes working on my wife Melanie's site full time.For years I was full time running the tech stack, shopping cart tech, FB ads, the SEO and conversion rate optimization #LikeABoss

I call it "Melanie's site" but it's really "our site" She is the 'face' of that brand and since you are reading this on 'my site' it is easier to keep them straight this way.

We started her site together in 2009 with a simple blog on WordPress and I've been full time online as an internet marketer since 2010… Still to this day, her site is my main focus.We get more than 8,000,000+ visits per year on that site, compared to the 250,000 per year on this site... So it has some interesting tech challenges.

And I'm still super passionate about meditation and spirituality which is what that site is all about.

In a minute I'll share the crazy story about how we started her site…

But first, I want to address the internet cesspool and the "fake gurus" I mentioned above..Because they are a big part of why this site even exists…You see, over the years of growing that business with my wife, I've signed up for more courses than I'd like to admit.

From the $7 and $17 ebooks to the $1,995 courses and $5,000/mo coaching programs...

I've invested a half a mint on my digital marketing education.

You know one thing I now realize?

Most of the people selling courses and coaching are regurgitating ideas they learned in a course...

It is like the courses are copies of copies, getting worse quality content every level... But still sold for 'high ticket' pricing.

Usually the fake gurus don't have a 'real business' beyond selling you that one course.

It gets incestuous, fast…

The "Facebook Ads Guy" selling his Facebook ads course through Facebook ads…

But he has no REAL WORLD experience beyond copying another Facebook ads guy's course...

#SHADY

I've spent over $10,000 on Facebook Ads courses and in person trainings...

Most of them suck. And the more expensive ones were some of the worst! Most of them don't share as much (or as updated of info) as I do for free, here. The fake gurus think that hyped up evergreen webinars, fake scarcity 'high ticket prices' and a "good enough" product is a recipe for the 'dot com lifestyle'…

Well, I'm tired of it.

And this blog is here to pull the rug out from under their B.S. Additionally, for a 4 year period, Melanie and I were full time digital nomads. Meaning we had no home base… No 'room at our parents house' waiting for us to come back… No storage unit full of stuff waiting for us…

Just 2 bags each, our laptops and a desire to see the world while growing our business.

And I'm still super passionate about meditation and spirituality which is what that site is all about.
