"Thank you so very much for your advice/opinion that I neither asked for nor care to hear."  When someone offers you unsolicited advice, do you just want to punch them in the face? Does it feel like a sucker punch?  Do you listen with an open mind and an open heart?  Are you appreciative or resentful?  This week Katie and Nora talk unsolicited advice: Is it a bad thing?  Are we guilty ourselves?  What's the motivation of the offerer?  Should we/the receiver be open to other's thoughts?  This is a fun one, Blazer Nation.  And if nothing else, always remember, "opinions are like a*&holes - everybody's got one."

 

 As always, we want to hear from gorgeous YOU!!  What is the best unsolicited advice you've ever received?  The worst??  How do you handle OPOs (other peoples' opinions)??
