All Advice Isn’t Good Advice (Including This Advice)

The startup world has plenty of wisdom. Do you have a way of filtering the good from the bad?

One of the best characteristics of the entrepreneurship community is people’s willingness to give advice. Experienced entrepreneurs willingly and eagerly spend dozens of hours each year mentoring young entrepreneurs. When asked why, most will give the same answer: they’re “paying it forward” in appreciation for the hours of advice and mentoring given to them early in their careers.
