The worst advice you can take, is bad advice!
Back in 1996, when I started my very first business, which was a cleaning and restoration company here in the Seattle area, one of the biggest mistakes I made was taking bad advice, and it cost me dearly.
Shortly after opening the doors to the business, I signed online to the industry forum, hoping to get help for my struggling new business.
I posted to the forum, asking for advice on how I could get more clients for my business so I could increase my income.
To my amazement, when I returned to the forum the following day, I had a ton of replies waiting on me.
I followed the advice that was offered, only to become disappointed when it didn’t work.
I returned to the forum again, asking for more help.
I explained that I did exactly what I was told to do, but it failed miserably.
That’s when I made this startling discovery!
As it turned out, the folks who’d responded to my plea for help and offered their advice, weren’t offering me anything but “theory”.
By that, I mean that they didn’t have any experience in what they were telling me.
They even admitted that they’d merely offered suggestions, and when I probed a little further, I discovered that most of the forum members were failing in their own businesses.
That’s when I discovered a valuable lesson.
The worst advice you can take is – BAD advice.
I recently received an email from an individual who’s making this very mistake.
Within two hours of requesting my report, they demanded to be removed from my mailing list, stating that I was listed on a scam site.
As you can imagine, this kind of threw me for a loop, so I had to check it out for myself.
Here’s the content I found when arriving at the site:

Has anyone ever heard of the Automatic Income System?
I mean the name seems a bit conspicuos but their sales pitch is well put together and they have a “money back” guarantee so I was wondering if anyone had heard of them before or had experience with them. It seems to be a guide to setting up your own online bussiness marketing your own actual products which seems reasonable.Anyway, you guys are really helpful with this stuff so let me know what you find please.

Wow, I’ve never seen a website that was so vague on what you have to do to make money. Plus their lame marketing strategy to lure you in by making you curious, keeping you in supspense, and slashing prices by showing how you get thousands of dollars worth of items for free (for 30 days) should set off an alarm that you’ll probably see $397.97 disappear from your bank after your 30-day trial. Then once you try to dispute what was taken, the company puts you on ignore and you’ll never hear from them again. Also, you should be cautious about businesses that guarantee you’ll make a certain amount of money within a specified time because if you’ll notice, your trial period ends 37 days before your make $5000-$10,000 guarentee does (that’s how they cover themselves). So in conclusion, pretend like you never saw that website.

As you can see, Mike went to this particular site and posted an honest question.
Unfortunately for him, he got a reply from someone who goes by the name “Dark Shadow”.
The screen name alone is a clue that this individual ain’t gonna have too much good to say, about anything. I didn’t waste much time on this site, but I’m willing to bet that the majority of “Dark Shadow’s” posts are similar to the one above.
As in my own experience, “Dark Shadow” is offering Mike advice, yet it’s BAD advice, because there’s no first-hand knowledge.
The advice offered is nothing more than an uneducated opinion.
If Mike wants to form an educated opinion, there’s a specific 4-Step process he needs to follow.
Here it is:
1. Only take advice from those who have first-hand knowledge or experience.
2. Only take financial, legal or money-making advice from those who can prove that they’re already successful in using the methods they’re showing you. If they don’t have a tested and proven track record with their methods, stay away from them.
For example: there’s plenty of folks who offer “How-To-Make-Money” information, yet very few of them actually make any of the green stuff by using the methods they speak of. They offer nothing but “theory”.
Make sure the individual has documented success with their methods. If it worked for them, the same system can work for you.
3. On the internet, be cautious of bogus claims and fake testimonials. These days, you can’t trust everything you see in print on the internet.
If income claims are real, they’ll be backed up with actual copies of bank statements, copies of real checks, and other supporting documentation.
Testimonials will NOT simply be written copy on a web page. Anyone can forge such documentation. Real testimonials will include “audio recordings”, that come from people who have first-hand knowledge and experience.
4. Make sure that the individual will agree to speak with you on the phone “live and in person”. This gives you the chance to ask the tough questions.
By following this 4-Sep Process, you’ll be able to get the information needed, so you can form an educated opinion.
