In April, I wrote an article 20 Pieces of Business Advice You Should Ignore. It was filled with often hackneyed advice that’s touted with very little sense as to the advice receiver’s business. I followed up on this article at the Women 2.0 Founder Friday event at Google’s headquarters in San Francisco where I asked attendees, what’s the worst business advice they’ve ever received. Here are their answers.
