Stop Giving Bullshit Advice

I’ve had it.

Time and again, I would be invited to a webinar, promising sharing of behind-the-scene strategies and advice.

Only to be inundated with their stories and bullshit advice.

What exactly are bullshit advice?

To me, bullshit advice is this: giving me advice at a conceptual level, advice on what to do.

The reason I am calling out on such advice is because we are living in an information symmetry era, as described by Daniel Pink.

In other words, arguably anyone who wants information can have access to it.

What we want is actionable advice.

Advice that we can implement quickly to get results.

But of course, you can only expect that from a practitioner.

A charlatan? Definitely not.
