I guess I'm lucky. Most of my friends have no clue what I do, and don't care to. I would probably be much more likely to take advice from somebody who does something similar. But even when somebody has a business, there are many ways to do something... so having a business doesn't mean that what works for you, will work for everybody. Most ideas I get from customers are crap. People try to talk you into making all this ridiculously unique stuff, which I know won't sell at all. Also, I know people have a habit of disappearing once you actually make it. Fell for that before, not going to anymore. Then again, this one guy asked me years ago to make something... I was going to anyway eventually, but I put it off for over a year, because I didn't think it would sell. It is now my best selling product. So you never know. I would always at least listen.
