Ikigai Framework: Not All That, Say Eastern Gurus ๐Ÿง˜ - Some profs are rubbishing Ikigai, only to flog their own pricey 'real deal'. Always question motives, folks, especially when the price tag screams '$6000 secret sauce'.

๐Ÿค” Advice or Guidance? More Like Selling! - Whether it's Guidance or Advice, it's all sales at the end of the day. Our thoughts on the FCA's Advice-Guidance Boundary? Well, read our comments and see for yourself.
