Some of the suggestions seem to be too much work, and too much to cover in the time allowed, but there are a couple of good takeaways in here.

I couldn't have said it better...

From CBInsights newsletter (highly recommended) this morning, there was a mention of an excellent article that starts with the premise that some gurus' advice is either mere platitude, or seriously flawed, and the primary reason is that so many of them have no true experience experience with the topic of the advice.

The article title is "How to Call Bulls**t on a Guru or Expert" and you can read it here.

Beware of gurus in general.  Healthy skepticism is your friend. Seek advice from those who have experience, of course, but you must make your own decisions.
