Thou shalt not covet ...

...thy neighbor’s free professional advice that is.

How many times were you asked for a professional advice or a "little favor" - at a party, in a casual conversation with a stranger or an acquaintance or their brother? "So how would you go about ... XYZ?", "Would you mind looking over my business plan?", "Oh, this reality check you are doing is such a great idea - so let me tell you about my situation...."

Have you been there? I know a ton of people who play along. They feel regret and resentment, yet they do allow others to steal their goods (well, services) !

So, what can you do? What do you say in those cases?

These and other business 'No' related questions will be addressed in one of the Confidantency series workbooks. Stay tuned!
