About

Hello, my name is Lachlan, and I’m delighted to welcome you to my review site on personal growth products.

There’s so much happening these days in the personal growth space.

But to be completely honest with you…

A lot of it is complete fluff.

That’s why I created Best by the Numbers. I decided to take an objective and unbiased approach to reviewing what’s out there in the personal growth space.

Why me?

Well, a few years ago I created Hack Spirit. It’s now one of the world’s largest blogs in mindfulness, personal growth, and eastern philosophy.

I’ve become an expert in personal growth and now I want to give back to the community.

On Best by the Numbers, you will find comprehensive and in-depth guides to online courses, eBooks, and whatever else I can get my hands on in the personal growth industry.

The mission of Best by the Numbers

I am driven by two goals:

  1. Expose fake and untrustworthy reviews in personal growth, replacing them with genuine, down-to-earth and useful guides about the products changing people’s lives.
  2. Warn you about potential scams and low-quality products so you can make better buying decisions.

I named this website “Best by the Numbers” because I always take an objective and measurable approach to my reviews. I immerse myself in the product and research the experience of actual users.

The result:

A data-driven, comprehensive, and honest review of the products you’re thinking of buying.

Why you should listen to me

Over the last few years, I built up my other website, Hack Spirit, into one of the world’s largest media sites in mindfulness and eastern philosophy.

I’ve achieved a lot in this time. But I’ve also been exposed to the dark underbelly of the personal growth industry.

I know firsthand how manipulative review sites can be in trying to convince you to buy whatever products are being recommended to you.

Now, I’ve decided to bring what I’ve learned and educate the public about finding high-quality products and ensuring their reviews are honest and trustworthy.
