Mike Winnet and Ian Darlington run IAM productions, where they work on the “not another dickhead with a podcast” video podcast series. They have used this platform to explore the world of “contrapreneurs” aiming to expose those entrepreneurial gurus who promise “get-rich-quick” formulas to those who would invest in their products.
Putting their money where their mouths are, they have invested in courses, bought products and attended seminars that claim to show people what they need to do to become successful in the world of social media, property investment and crypto-currency amongst other schemes. They take a serious but light hearted look at the global success industry and have broken down the psychology, methodology and mindset that leads millions to invest time and money into these schemes. They report back on the success, or failure of their investments and take a brutally honest look at whether or not any of them actually work. This work has led them on a controversial journey, including visits to meet Gary Vaynerchuk in New York, outraged comments, possible netflix deals, threats on social media and even a best-selling Amazon book which was subsequently banned.
Jenny discusses their mission and story, and covers why they chose this journey, what results they have found, and what they are working on next. This is a frank and honest interview that delves into the myths, dangers and psychology of an industry that often promises much but delivers little. If you follow any success gurus, have wondered about crypto-mining, or have questioned the credibility of social media gurus, superstar entrepreneurs or best-selling authors this is the interview for you.
