Lessons learned in business can often help us in life.
Here’s a true story of one of the several times I’ve been taken advantage of in business and lived to tell about it. Someday, perhaps, I’ll tell you more war stories.
For now, this On-Purpose Business Minute speaks for itself. It is longer than normal at 6 minutes, but it is a story that needs to be understood because it is rich in many lessons.
After watching this, here are some questions to ponder by yourself, with your family, or among your team:
- Are money and confidence related? If so, how and why?
- What are the limits to your service and compromise to keep it from becoming abuse and disrespect?
- What can you do to avoid putting yourself at risk of being dangled by dollars?
- If you had $100,000 extra in your pocket, what would you be doing differently from what you’re doing today?
