Are you potentially wrecking your chances of success?

1 replies
This might be a case of biting the hand that feeds me, but it really concerns me the cr*p some people give out on this (and other forums) in the form of advice.

As a grizzled old marketer of 10 years plus I KNOW for certain there is a lot I don't know. However, it seems that others think that their opinion or one experience they have had equates to fact, which they are more than happy to pass on to newbies asking for help and advice.

So if you are just starting out, as useful as forums like this are, please make sure you do your own due diligence.

There is LOTS of good advice, but don't potentially scupper your success by listening to just one person (yep, that includes me :-) ), no matter how loudly or confidently they shout.

    I agree. Get input from a few people. Make sure there is fruit on their tree. Make sure they are qualified to give you the advice you are seeking.

    I also realize everyone has a different perspective. Advice I would give to someone today is completely different than advice I would given them a few years ago. Things have changed. So has my perspective.

    The best thing you can do is find a mentor who has achieved what you are trying to achieve and follow their advice (if they are willing to share it).
