I totally agree. I'm fascinated by the phenomenon of the self-appointed expert. On the one hand, good for them thinking that they can do whatever they are promising to do; but on the other hand, they're just making it up as they go along. I would probably be less bugged about it if they didn't monetize it; but the money making part is what makes it seem so predatory.

I also hate how the goal posts are constantly moving. You think you're doing well, and then along comes a new movement to tell you you're doing it all wrong.

Thanks for reading and for such a thoughtful response.
