Finding the right advice can make an unbelievable difference in the way we do things and the outcomes of our actions. And with the overload of resources and individuals providing advice around us today, it is even more difficult to get through the clutter and find effective advice.
But I am sure one great way to find quality advice nowadays is to follow well-grounded subject matter experts on social media; especially ones who share their expert knowledge frequently with their social media audience. So, I am sharing this roundup of 10 Nigerians to watch out for on social media for life and business advice:

One more thing. Before you go ahead to receive advice from anyone, make sure that you factor in these 5 stages of advising highlighted in this Harvard Business Review post by Harvard Business School professors David A. Garvin and Joshua D. Margolis:
1. Find the right fit
2. Develop a shared understanding
3. Craft alternatives
4. Converge on a decision
5. Put the advice into action
