That’s often true. No shortage of people who tell their loved ones to have a plan B. The clear path to a lesser goal. But also — I’ve been a business and marketing consultant for 20-some years and I’ve watched a whole lot of people who fail to achieve their goals because of bad advice.

The feedback you got from Tucker — why don’t you go all in on this thing — many people don’t get that kind of advice. Instead they’d be piling bad advice onto the original idea instead of helping refine the direction.

Most people are trying to figure out how to get different results from the same actions that got them where they are. You can’t stand out of the crowd by doing what everyone else does. Nice post. Hope your family is well.
