Fake Gurus and Contrepreneurs

UPDATE: this post has been heavily edited on December 7th 2020, following my decision to take down most of the content where I expose Fake Gurus directly. Hi (Italian) readers, This is a follow up of my previous post about TIMWWTM and his company. But it’s not a post centered
