    Today John Sanders is giving advice on receiving advice centered around his article “Advice on Receiving Advice” published in October 1996.
    "In my professional experience, I've been an advisor for individuals, companies, and organizations; and, I've also been on the other side of the equation and hired advisors. I believe there are common threads for any successful arrangement between the parties: common goals and expectations, along with appropriate results and compensation." ~ John Sanders

    Many times in business we deal with people who leave us cold at a certain point in a project or in driving a marketing deal to conclusion. They seem to have a strong involvement, but it begins to drift just when the tough aspect arrives. Some people are "involved" in a project or deal, and some are "committed."

    There’s a classic illustration that compares "involvement" with "commitment" as being like "bacon and eggs" where the hen is involved while the pig is committed.
