Much of the advice that’s shared is well-meaning.

But a lesson just learned by someone who is far ahead of you may not be relevant right now. It very well could be the right advice but for someone in a different position.

Getting the right advice at the wrong time is just as bad as getting the wrong advice.

How do you find advice that will help you where you are right now? How do you know the difference?

Highlights, Takeaways, & Quick Wins:
  • Every piece of advice fits into different levels of your sales funnel—know where your gaps are.
  • Ask yourself: does this make sense for where I’m at?
  • The best thing you can do before giving advice is ask 5 questions.
  • Context is everything. You have to contextualize advice and take advice with a grain of salt.
  • Advice is a tool that can hurt you if you don’t use it at the right time.
  • Take ownership of how you listen to advice and be purposeful about where you are in your process of applying it.
  • People are always going to think things about what you do. That’s fine. Let them have their opinions.
  • Even if the advice from someone you know isn’t for you right now, validate their desire to help you and thank them.
