    I mistakingly wrote GRRM. I wanted to write about John Green. He sold 25 million books and made 10 million which an Harvard MBA and Harvard law grad can easily reach if they want it.
    GRRM Martin is 70YO. His royalties came when he was 65 YO. In 40 years before his fame he made around 25 million after taxes. I don't think book royalties and HBO royalties figures are quite right. Most ivy league MBAs can make 5-7 million till they are 65 . A very few also reach 12-18 million too. Note , that I was talking about making money through written content and not TV-shows.80% life is sucked out of a person when he is 65. There is no comparison between a Harvard -MBA and one of the best and most famous writers in the world.

    If they're trying to *promote* themselves and brag about their products or put their competition down, I avoid them. If there's someone who gives good advice and content without trying to promote or sell too much - even if they do have products, then I'll follow them. Example- Brian Dean

    people pay hedge fund managers $500,000+ per annum to lose money....

    Or $1m+ on a diamond worth 20% of that....

    Or the governent 50% of their hard earned money...

    Plastic surgeons charge $25,000 for tummy tucks etc..

    Dentists.. i am sure they rip us off.

    And don't get me started on that f***8 plumber...

    But let's all complain about the guru

    Bullshit detector. Basically just means when you think something sounds wrong or too good to believe, it usually is.

    One of the recent examples I came across is Tai Lopez.

    Running courses like 5 minute daily advice for $50.
