How to give (and receive) advice without annoying people

I think we’ve all been on both sides of this experience:

Someone comes to you with a problem. Someone you care about. Clearly, this is a major issue for them.

Frustrating, right?

Either way, there’s a lot of needless suffering and ignored wisdom.

How do you get to the part in the conversation where the person in need is willing and able to listen?

What if your words and stories stuck in their minds?

What if you could turn the most mundane thing into something so compelling, they’ll struggle to forget it?

I’m not exaggerating. In a few paragraphs of text, I tell a story about shaving that has it all – emotion, conflict and a triumphant hero.

Once you know the 4 Pillars of Lasting Impressions, you can be this memorable too.

But this guide is only available during the launch, so grab it now.
