Have you ever thought about where people get their financial advice? Or even where you get your advice? In reality, a lot of people are quick to hand out financial advice, but most of them don’t have a track record to back it up.

Time magazine said it this way: “It seems like everyone from bloggers to your next-door neighbor doles out financial advice these days. It can be difficult figuring out who to believe.”

A lot of people claim to be able to help you save money, pay off debt and become wealthy. They are all very quick to offer advice to anyone who will listen. Unfortunately, a lot of this advice comes from people who are not financially-independent, themselves. Anybody can say they’re an expert, but at the end of the day, their results are all that matter. This goes for any kind of advice: business, career, relationship, spiritual, parenting.

I have a client who spent $30,000, over a three-year period, on all kinds of “experts” and “gurus” who promised to lead her to financial freedom and abundance. Come to find out, her so-called “guru” was broke as a joke! My client ended up miserable… and even deeper in debt.

However, since she came across DaniJohnson.com, this young lady has paid off $23,000 of debt and is now 100% debt-free! She has savings, investments, PLUS every month she gives money to orphans and helps to free kids trapped in the sex trade.

A long time ago, I learned if you want to be successful, you’ve got to find someone who has what you want and do what THEY do. I would not be where I am today, if I had not learned to take advice from people who had the kind of success I wanted.

In order to succeed financially, you have to learn from financially-successful people. Someone in debt, cannot teach you how to get out of debt! Someone failing in business, cannot teach you how to succeed in business! Someone who constantly battles with their spouse, cannot teach you how to bring harmony to your marriage. If you want to become a millionaire, who do you learn from? A millionaire! Why? Because they have already done it and can teach you how!

You have gotten some good and bad advice in your life, just like I have. You’ve ignored some of it, and followed some. You’ve gotten good results and suffered bad consequences. And hopefully, you’ve learned a few lessons along the way.

So, before you take any advice, whether it’s from your best friend or a so-called “expert,” you have to look at their results. Are they financially independent? Do they have a track record of helping other people annihilate their debt, increase their income and live financially-independent lives? Have they been in a loving, committed, healthy and harmonious marriage for decades? Have they built a successful business? Have they been promoted and received bonuses and raises at work? If they don’t have the kind of results you want in your own life, do not take their advice!

If you want to be successful, find someone who has what you want, and do what they do! It’s that simple.

Do not end up like so many others who blindly follow “experts” and “gurus” only to end up broke, in debt and miserable! And you can help your friends and family avoid being led into a trap by simply sharing this message with them. This is a lesson you definitely do NOT want to learn the hard way! So pass this along via email or social media today! Then, share with me any experiences you’ve had with “experts” in the comments below.
