Today I read an interesting quote which was “Never take advice from someone who doesn’t have to live with the consequences.” It was so simple yet it’s so true where anytime you hear advice or opinions from others you have to keep in mind how your situation is versus theirs. At the same time, it’s true that you will be the one who will have to live with whatever the outcome may be and so you should really think about it.
Whenever it comes to advice in any sense I always like to hear as many different views as possible as in most cases there isn’t just one way of doing something. Especially when it comes to topics about money where I don’t think you can stop learning as so many people have such interesting ways of managing and making money. I think when it comes to spending money that is where this quote is more relevant as even with like financial advice from random books you will probably be told what’s best and in reality you are the one that is taking the risk and not them. Therefore, you need to read the information and then assess it appropriately based on your situation.
Basically, no shortcuts in life as you have to do the research and leg work to get everything together.
