If you look a few years back, however, you find a very different landscape. In the internet of the early 2010s, lots of people were excited about making money with trash ebooks and trash audiobooks, but they weren’t yet all trying to scam one another on top of their eventual readers.

Where there's an open storefront, there will always be grifts running.

My sister almost got caught in this, because, bless her heart, she wants to get rich quick. That's mainly who they're targeting, not people willing to do the hard work.

Whether the course is worth the money or they live up to their promises entirely is one discussion ... but they're mainly just saying "create a publishing company" and trying to automate/outsource as much of that work as possible. If people want to do that, go for it, but I expect most will simply lose more money, and it's by no means a "passive" income, even if it works.
