Advice is worth the price you pay. Or, at least that’s the conventional wisdom.
But good advice… good advice is a very different story.
It’s hard to come by, which makes it all the more valuable.
To get good advice, you have to seek it out from people who care. The kind of people who are willing to say, “My wish for you is…” and say it because you matter to them.
Find those people. Invest in them. Be intentional in asking them for very targeted, very honest advice.
It’s not worth the price you pay. It’s invaluable.
