In this edition of the Mentor Minute, Adeo Ressi (CEO of the Founder Instituteexplains why it's imperative to listen and not argue when seeking out feedback on your ideas.

To actually hear feedback directly from Adeo, join him this week for his live, interactive Founder Hotseat webinar event. During this free online event, viewers will be able to pitch their business ideas and receive analysis and commentary from a Silicon Valley startup expert.
