The value of free advice is well known. None-the-less many bloggers freely give advice or are asked to provide free advice. Often bloggers have advice on blogging better. I also have advice on avoiding blogging difficulties.

As this blog was started while I was an MBA student I got asked for advice on doing an MBA degree or getting into an MBA program. Later, I also did the CFA® Program so I got asked to provide a lot of advice on that too ultimately passing all three CFA exams. Often I’ve just shared advice that was given to me or that I learned through a presentations or a book. Having lived and taught overseas I got asked for advice on that too.

Alas, there is not a lot of money to be made giving free advice. I’ve also encountered a lot of selfish and conniving people online (and off) so after twenty years of blogging I suggest you read the advice I and others freely provided but do not contact me asking for yet more free advice.
