The past few weeks have shown what happens when unbridled greed, a capitalistic economy and uncertain government regulations collide. The ripples will likely be felt for decades. If you have a small business, you might have already seen changes.
There are two times of stress for a business owner: not enough money and too much money. It reveals the true character of the people behind business. Unfortunately, the picture isn’t always pretty.
But when someone treats another unfairly in business, when business partner steals from business partner, when negotiations turn ugly, when someone’s ideas are stolen or deceptive marketing is used, anytime something is not right, it’s an indicator for the future. In today’s world “It’s Just Business” is used as an excuse for just about any kind of negative action.
It doesn’t have to be like that. In fact, the way you do anything is the way you do everything. It’s not possible to have one face for business and one for personal time. In fact, they aren’t two different faces. It’s the same face. It’s just that one face has a mask.
When business is good, you don’t always get the opportunity to see the face behind the mask. If you pay attention now you’re about to get some real insights into what a particular business (and its owner) is all about.
