I once read on your site about someone who asked you about “Yahoo-Yahoo”, and u said he should not take that path. My question is similar to his: I’ve been courted by at least 5 groups not to join them, but just to give them ideas, and they are offering to pay me for each idea in dollars. It’s tempting, but I’m not sure about it. What do you think sir?
As long as the groups are not illegal groups, you can give as much advice as they need. Consultation has a very big market this recent times. Tap into it (legally) and you will reap its rewards.
My advice is conduct your research well before giving in. If you want, you can send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) their group names and i’d verify and revert.
