Gawd I remember asking this question all over the place, and I never believed anyone when they answered me! haha It took me forever to weed through the scams and find some honest opinions. I am a huuuge skeptic though. Huge.
Research, research, research. Learn to pick out the sales pitches right away so you can decipher who you think is telling the truth and is guiding you towards the right product/program.
Problem is, most 'scammers' are reaaally good at what they do, and they have google and the rest of the search engines taken by storm.
two people that I trusted to be real people and gave good advice are Yaro Starak and Steve Pavlina. Both also super successful people on here.
