Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

How I’ve completely ignored these 4 pieces of popular business advice and still found success

Have you ever been given a piece of business advice that makes you roll your eyes? 

I know I have. In fact, there are four pieces of advice that I’ve heard on repeat over the years that I believe can be more detrimental than helpful -- especially if you’re first getting started in business. 

The thing is, this is really popular business advice. You see it all over Facebook and Instagram, it’s published in business media outlets, and I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard a successful entrepreneur say it Live from stage, or while presenting a webinar. 

Sure, I’ll bet it’s been helpful for some people. But for me, it’s been more discouraging than motivating. 

And because this advice is so mainstream (cough cough, played out), it’s made me feel like following it is the only way to be successful in business and I’m here to tell you that it’s not.

So, sweet friend, in this episode, I’m flipping the script -- and it’s my hope that if this advice has left a salty taste in your mouth, like it has mine, you might be able to gain a new perspective. 

Here’s a glance at this episode...

  • [05:18] As entrepreneurs, we receive a lot of advice. I'm going to talk about advice that I'm sick and tired of hearing. 
  • [06:45] #1: Follow your passion. This does more harm than good. For most of us, following your passion isn't reality. 
  • [09:10] #2: If you want to be successful, you have to constantly be learning. Consuming a ton of content without taking dedicated action isn't going to get you anywhere. 
  • [10:40] #3: In order to succeed you have to hustle. Sacrificing everything that’s important to you is a recipe for burnout. 
  • [14:02] #4: You've got to be fearless. We should listen to rational fears that are wired into our brains to protect us.
