No One Wants Advice Anymore

…’Some people like my advice so much that they frame it upon the wall instead of using it.’ – Gordon R Dickson.

John Steinbeck once said that ‘No one wants advice – only corroboration.’

Now, I don’t know how long ago he made that statement, but in this day and age of social media, it’s rampant. – Take Facebook as a prime example.

Stay on it long enough and you’ll find that your news feed, and the people you hang out with, all agree with what you think and say.

God forbid anyone should join an obese community and tell everyone that they all need to lose a few pounds.

Rather than facing the truth, for their health sake, you’ll find all the wagons being circled pronto and you’ll be chastised for being a mean and cruel person.

That’s not what they want to hear.

Same way you’ll always have difficulty selling a make money at home course that requires a few years of grinding away until you make it.

Nope. – Just tell me I can sit on my butt all day, and I’ll put you in charge of my credit card.

People don’t want advice. And if they do, they usually ask people that they agree with, and that are in the same situation as they’re in.

That’s why I rarely give advice, or sell anything that I haven’t used or done myself.

Take my ‘Book Reviews Made Easy’ course.

Hang out with people that tell you it’s hard to get them and you’ll believe it.

Hear me say that it’s easy to do, and that I can show you how to build an email list of book reviewers, and you’ll probably switch off and call it a con job.

But the con job is that some people charge hundreds of dollars for a handful of book reviews. – I don’t hang out in that group either.

If you want more book reviews – the legal way – go here.

PS – That’s another reason why I dropped out of social media.
