Episode-60- Good Advice, Bad Advice and Parasitic Advice

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , — JackSpirko @ 5:13 pm

To me advice from others about business fits one of three categories…

  • Good Advice – comes from someone who really knows and loves your work or comes from someone who has been successful in the area he/she is giving you advice on.
  • Bad Advice – anything that isn’t covered by good advice
  • Parasitic Advice – advice that is designed to convey that the givers “idea” should be adopted and that you should “bring them in as a partner”.  See also bad advice

I also give my thoughts on “partners” and why I feel it is best to be a heavy majority partner or a true minority partner in any business vs. an “equal partner”.

    Good episode Jack. Sage advice on partnerships. A wise businessman once told me a partnership is like a marriage, in a lot of cases it ends in divorce.

    Also in addition with family or friends involved in any partnership or business, which I personally avoid, a written agreement of terms and expectations will save a lot of heartache.

      @Britton, I agree 1000% with both things you just said. Family and business generally are a bad idea, and always put things in writing.

    Boy, this one resonates in so many ways I can’t even tell you!

    A qoute about ideas being worthless: “A field will never be plowed if you only turn it over in your mind.”
