There are two types of advice solicited and unsolicited. People solicit advice for a variety of reasons. Some ask to find someone who will just agree with them, right or wrong. Some ask because they are unsure of what they want to do or accomplish and are therefore truly looking for advice.

In either situation, all you can do is offer your honest opinion. When you can, always advise people to do what you see they really want to do. Unless, what they want to do is against the law, socially stupid or will be impossible to achieve.

Doing what they want to do will give them the most chance for success. Doing what they don’t want to do is a recipe for failure.

The other type of advice is unsolicited. This usually comes from a person who generally thinks they are smarter than everyone else and therefore will offer their advice and opinions to anyone who will listen. They are the type of person, who if you are having a conversation with a friend, colleague, etc will interrupt. Usually, their first sentence is something like this “let me tell you what I would do”.

If you will allow us, let us to offer you some advice. If you truly want it, ask for it. If someone starts offering it and you don’t want it, quickly remove yourself from the conversation.
