All too often people share their two cents when not asked. People tend not to follow advice they receive without solicitation. A more effective method of helping one another is through experience sharing.
It is arrogant to assume that you have the answer to someone’s complex problems after briefly hearing about the story. There are so many nuances to a situation that one could not possibly understand in a short briefing.
Through experiencing sharing, one is able to help see a route taken and use it to help them develop their own solution to their problem that addresses all of the nuances. This type of thought process is found in the major entrepreneur and president organizations, such as Entrepreneurs Organization.
I have learned many things and created many solutions to my challenges through experience shares of people within my professional circle. I encourage all entrepreneurs to join an organization such as EO and establish a trusting inner circle that will openly share experiences and help sharpen your skills.
