People pay to get rid of pain, people can live with discomfort.  Always understand which is your business solving. 

2. Consider WHO is giving you advice

 People love to give advice, but not all advice is created equal. Ashley found that many people she spoke with her affirming their actions when giving advice which makes it tricky to know if you should listen on not.
