Giving or Getting Advice: Make Sure It Is OK First

Topic Progress:

If you want to help another entrepreneur, make sure it is OK to do so.  Don’t give ideas or advice that is not yours to give.

If you work for a company, there is a good chance that your company either owns that idea – or worse – thinks they own the idea.

Make sure you are clear to help someone, or you may be hurting the people you are actually trying to help.

A lot of people rely on the fact that they supposedly own their ideas when they work on a project on their own time and with their own resources.  But it doesn’t really matter what ideas YOU think you own, it matters what your COMPANY thinks it owns.
