(Why is it different than all the other advice websites…?)2 main reasons (not in order):
- The Advice Watch is a project looking out for quality advice & tips regardless of where such comes from. A primary difference between Advice Watch and other advice communities or projects is that AW refers and links to other pages; not trying to confine one within its own website or community. The vision of Advice Watch is that if great advice or tips already exist in good form easily accessible somewhere else, by all means point that direction. In fact, AW prefers not to give advice but simply point to others who contribute quality advice, so that they can get all the credit that they deserve. However, in some instances if we feel as though we can explain a certain piece of information better than anything we can find, we may do so. Other times, may feel as though we might not be able to explain something better, but just differently so that more different types of people may better understand a certain topic.
- The Advice Watch by Advice Star is the first watchdog looking out for both good and bad advice in all fields of advice. Because no advice is better than bad advice. No advice can also be better than mediocre advice. You can also help us watch for both good and bad advice and tips and share it with the world so that together we can obtain an ultimate objective in society… The availability of advice that is honest, legitimate, and free and clear of ulterior motives. It is important to point out bad advice to give others the “grain of salt” warning to make intelligent decisions.
- Ulterior motives given in advice can include such things, but are in no way limited to marketing efforts to sell either additional advice or products. For example, you can often get free “advice” from infomercials; i.e. a fitness product designed to workout your abs may inform that your abs are the most important muscle group in your body to exercise… And nearly always they will have a well-known expert in the field advocating the like. The bottom line here is that sales persons love to give “advice” under the guise of such and often do not have titles such as “salesman” but often misleading titles such as “consultants”.
- Some persons who would be inclined to help you, however well intentioned may very possibly give bad advice. It is key to be on the watch for such well intentioned bad advice.
- Conversely, statements or details that may sound like bad advice, may turn out to be very good advice. This might be true more often than not.
