You may mean well but.
Last Update: Nov 27, 2019
This is becoming a bit of a per peeve of mine. I know you all mean well, but when you give someone advice that is ahead of where they are in the lessons I really think you are doing them a disservice.
The steps are there for a reason.
The training is put together in such a way that it all builds on itself. You do the assignments in order to give yourself the best chance for success. Kyle explains quite clearly why he is teaching things in the order he is numerous times. I think we should trust him, it's been working for him so far and for those of us that follow the steps in order it seems to work easier than when we jump ahead (at least in my experience).
Pay attention to where the questions are.
I also see advice being given in the Affiliate Bootcamp training that would make more sense to the Online Entrepreur Certification. Or the question is in the beginning levels or phases and you give advice for things to come. I try to review the level or phase that the question is in quickly to know where they would be based on the question.
I need this advice as much as anyone.
Slow down. Gotta remember to slow down. I've been good about not rushing ahead much with the classes any more. I'm usually pretty good about making sure I'm not giving the wrong advice, I hope. Follow the steps. Trust the program.
Stay helpful, just think about the help you are offering. Offering the wrong help is worse than not helping at all.
Hope everyone is having a good week, we're all in this together!
It’s a fair point and I have had a mixture of answers to a number of questions that I’ve asked. We are fortunate that we have so many helpful people here as well as those who mean well but perhaps offer dubious answers in their attempt to help.
The training is structured based on what WA develop. The community feedback and helping hands are free flowing, therefore sometimes there are alignment issues. However, you do get different perspectives as value added.
Sure, it is not perfect but structures learning, complimented by peer learning makes this a unique environment for learning, doing (application), and contributing to the learning of others eco-system (community).
Yes, I agree with you. I'm pretty new here and try to read as many posts here as I can before starting on my training. Some of the answers I haven't a clue about what they are talking about because I haven't gotten to that point in my training. Maybe it would help everyone, if the person asking the question would reference the current level of training they are on. Just my suggestion.
They are trying to help and ya never know who knows what. Everybody comes in with varying levels of experience and knowledge. Half of the technical conversations are beyond over my head! But I acknowledge and appreciate their help and go on my merry way until I find the answer at the level that it makes sense to me. Hang in!!

Great post Nedd. It can definitely be confusing to receive assistance or advice on something that you haven't covered in training yet.
On more than one occasion I have been given advice which has had me searching through previous modules in case I missed something important. Turns out, the advice was related to training a few modules further on than I am.
While the advice I have received has always been very good, it has not necessarily been for my current level.
All the best
