How To Become A Gupert

How To Become A Gupert

We all have to reinvent ourselves. Constantly. It’s the only way of being hip, having hips, and staying cool and relevant in an online world. (We don’t care about the offline world, they have neither hips or cools.)


How To Become A Gupert


Firstly, what is a Gupert? It’s a guru and expert.


I assume most people online use the word Guru as they think it means something “more” as it sounds “less western” and therefore “more deeperer”.


So why also be an expert? Because we all (YES ALL OF US) have to be “thought leaders”, churning out the same few ideas with VERY LOUD AUTHORITY TO MAKE SURE WE ARE HEARD.


Three Easy Ways To Gupert


How To Become A Gupert


Offer Obvious Answers

We all know that no one else is as smart as we are, so therefore you should point out the obvious. Continually. Make sure that you expect a giant pat on the back for saying things that a toddler could give advice on.


Offer Unrelated Products

Make sure that your customers/audience/readers/lovers/birds/fleas all know that you are also selling a very shiny rock that will help them hug out their feelings of frustration that all you did was offer obvious answers.


Ensure Your Third Point Exists Just For Show

Exactly like this third point.

  1. I need to make sure that I always have a third point. Have a great week…

  2. Bahahaha, this is the best. I am not a Gupert at anything, except talking a lot about seemingly nothing. And when it comes to that I am a step above a Gupert. I am, in fact, expelligent. That’s when you’re an expert AND intelligent at the same time. There’s nothing to it really. 😉

  3. Love it Vanessa!
    I loathe those self-help books that offer nothing but simple advice. It always makes the authors so $$ wealthy. Are we missing something?!

  4. Love it! Channelling my inner gupert right now.
