Why you should stop listening to kooky weirdos about money

How many of us have friends and family that are FULL of advice… that makes NO sense?
Your parents will tell you, “real estate is the best investment!” Your college advisor will tell you, “Better take Chinese! The future is in China!” And your friends will tell you about this “super-cool investment strategy” that they read about on a penny-stock site.
Isn’t it weird how everyone feels their opinion counts? Let me be the first to tell you: No. No, it doesn’t.
FOR EXAMPLE: If you write in and tell me how I have a spelling error on my 47-page sales page, and how dumb I am, then offer to “consult” for me on spelling, I’m probably gonna ignore you. Guess why? First, because I’m Indian and therefore a spelling-bee champion. Second, because minor spelling errors don’t matter. I have sales data and I factually, definitively know you’re wrong. In this case, your opinion is worthless. Thanks for playing.
In today’s video, I’ll explain WHY people offer you nutty advice…and how to see beneath the surface to decide whether it applies to you or not.
And make sure you leave a comment below with the craziest advice YOU’VE ever gotten. This is going to be great.
