Twitter and Facebook Poll: What's the Best Free Advice Your Dad Gave You?

Posted on 06/09/2011

In honor of Father’s Day we decided to put a fatherly spin on our latest Twitter and Facebook poll. We wanted to know about the best advice your dad gave you. Turns out some of you have some pretty wise papas.


Steven Jay Weisz: Pay in Cash.

Gretchen Cooper: Don't become an attorney… too stressful! But I didn't listen. Lol!

Rebecca Vereen: ‎"All you have to do is breathe air."

Julian Loue: Work to live. Don't live to work.

Jan Johannsen Turbes: Don't quit school (I was in college at the time.)

Karen Bourne: Make a workable budget and stick to it.

Kelly Langford: Employers will never look out for you, you have to look out for yourself… to companies it's all about the number and not the individual.

LaKeshia Rainey: ‎"Just pray Kee. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you!"

Jim Stewart: There is a good reason God gave you two ears and one mouth, sometimes all you need to do is listen.

Regan Robertson: Don't listen to what a man says, watch what he does.


@Jaymes_bee: "Boys are bad" - it was his version of the sex talk. He repeated it every time I called home from college.

@amandabrasier: Live on your own for at least a year (so later in life, you remember that you are strong enough to take care of yourself).

@NosyFoodDude: Don't be afraid to ask for anything because, "All they can say is 'No'!"

@PubSlide: Just because a light is green doesn't mean go (look both ways 1st). Applies to life too. My dad also told me to have FUN. He lived, more than preached it. Also impressed the importance of standing your ground.

@Russlee: Live BENEATH your means...
