When someone in your life offers you business or career advice- it’s important to ask yourself: What is this person’s credibility?
Perhaps the advice-giver has already achieved what you’re setting out to do.
They may fit the customer profile for your product or service- which in many ways, is the best kind of credibility- and you should listen intently.
Be aware that the worst kind of advice is from people who have our best interest at heart, yet no credibility. Do not ask non-credible sources for advice- If nobody in your life is credible- go seek them out.
