Advice: Something offered as a guide for action or conduct; an official notification. There are times when I have received advice which has really benefited me in a positive manner. I think of a previous leader I served with who guided me into investing my retirement funds in a way which was not only diversified, but helped me grow my funds a little quicker since I had some catching up to do. This was advice which actually assisted me in a very positive manner. I have also followed some not so great advice, purchasing some things I wish I had not simply because it was the latest trend and someone "swore" it would make all the difference to own it! Now, let me just assure you, there are some things which have benefited my life, while there are others which were just pure flops.
