What I want to talk about is business advice. Not just advice in general but specifically who you get advice from. Recently I received an email from a reader who pointed me to a blog post. In most cases when someone does this they are pointing me to someone trash talking a product I promote.
So I go over to the article and of course it’s about something I promote and that it’s a scam. So of course I’m going to do a little research on this blog to see what this person is all about.
Business Advice – Find The Right People
Of course the blog has zero page rank. Alexa ranking doesn’t even show up. Not a single comment I can see on every single blog post and a default WordPress theme. But yet because it’s on the internet and wrote something negative about a product I promote my reader thinks it’s true.
So who should you take advice from? I thoroughly believe that you should take advice from people who has actually done what you want to do. If you want to become rich should you take advice from someone that is already rich or from your broke uncle bob?
If you want to learn investment you should take advice from someone that turned $12k into $3 million dollars in 4 years not your broke brother in law who sits on the couch all day watching football or TV all the time
Amazingly enough the majority of people will take advice from people who have no authority to give such advice. Yet, they let those people guide them.
For example, I don’t invest in mutual funds because they are a scam. Yet the majority of people invest in mutual funds. Here’s a little hint for you. Ask Warren Buffet if he invests in mutual funds. Ask Bill Gates if he invests in mutual funds.
My point is don’t follow the crowd because the majority of people are doing it wrong. When the masses zig I zag 99% of the time.
Then I have people ask me if I invest in stocks. In short I say yes. Their answer back to me is stocks are too risky. Most people think this way. How many stocks do they own? ZERO. So be careful who you take advice from. Do a little due diligence.
There’s a hundred million blogs out there. Most of them have no clue what they are talking about. But it’s their voice it’s their little piece of the internet and because “everything on the internet is true” people believe them.
Here is the truth. Most things on the internet are not true or just someone talking out there @ss. So do your due diligence and don’t believe everything you come across on the internet. Most of it is BS.
Business Advice – Finding Leaders
Listen, do that for everyone. If you don’t know me but are thinking of doing business with me you should definitely check me out. Look at my social media accounts. Ask around about me. Shoot me over some emails with questions. That is what you should do.
If I meet someone new I’m not just going to believe everything they tell me. I’m going to give them a chance but at the same time I’m going to do my research. Same thing goes with a company I like but don’t know much about. I’m going to research the owner, talk to some of the people within the company, talk to leaders within the industry.
What I’m not going to do is do a Google search and look for all the dirt and believe some nobody making a negative blog post with a zero page rank.
