Humility, Damned Lies, and Statistics

PRO TIP: From someone who wanted to do their own due diligence.
Ask Angela for the disclosures that prove the amount of money some of her author’s have made, and ask for her doctorate credentials.
Odds are you’ll get the same treatment this person did; unceremoniously removed from the upcoming ‘interview’.

Angela is a humble. Probably the most humble. She will even tell you herself that she’s extremely humble! Just look for yourself:

In case clicking on pictures to enlarge them is a phobia to you, I’ll quote the meat of it.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’m combing through today…. when I run our Masterclass to help me find the very best applicants for my next cohort, my acquisitions team end up under a pile of over 1,000 applications from healers, coaches, entrepreneurs, consultants, and movement-makers, most of whom have a great message and want to make a difference with a book.
It’s humbling.

The Author Incubator email “This is humbling…” February 1, 2019

At the top of the email is an animated gif, which she states is what she’s “combing through today”. It’s this gif:

Something seems off about that gif, doesn’t it?

I’ll give you a minute. Click on “Read More” for the answer

It’s time to enhance and take a closer look at things. Remember she said that GIF represented over 1000 applicants from the masterclass event that took place on January 31st, 2019.

It’s 186 frames in size and there are these interesting things to note:

  • It has 2 interesting “jumps” where the creator has quickly scrolled back up and then returns to scrolling down at a slower pace.
  • It contains the personal info of the people who signed up. Sure, it’s just their name, but that alone is disrespectful.
  • The newest email shown is from September 24th, 2018
  • The last email is from September 6th, 2018
  • It only contains an estimated 360 people.

In other words, she publicly discloses the names of people who signed up to her program, she lies about the number of applicants, and directly states that the provided GIF is the result of her current class.

There’s literally nothing factual in her email. Because you can’t show humility by manufacturing how amazing you are.

Speaking of lies via email, how about the line she randomly throws into her emails about how many people want to write a book. You know the one:

She almost never cites where this data comes from, but you can see she does state it’s from the New York Times.
So I reached out to them and asked for that particular poll. This is what I received:

The New York Times has no record of any such poll being given, this includes going through over 6 decades of digitized data. Furthermore, the Times rarely would make a poll with such an ambiguous topic that provides no value to the readership.

And hey, lets throw in one more thing before I wrap this up. If you search for The Author Incubator on Social Blade, you’ll see this:

Let me point out that she has 420 videos, with a combined 66,005 views.

While I have 35 videos, and 86,469 views.

If you click on her to see more info about her channel, you’re greeted with the following:

There’s no reason to hide this information, unless you wanted to misrepresent yourself.

If you want to publish a book, just go to the Kindle Desktop Publishing website yourself. It’s all she does. They have all the help you could possibly want or need!

Remember folks, con artists are always super charismatic and manipulative. Be aware of the signs and you’ll be all the richer!

Share this with everyone you know – and be sure to ask Angela for the documents she has to keep proving the wealth of the people she’s helped, per FTC rules. And also ask for her Doctor credentials.
