Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #271

10 Jul 2018 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

With retirement looming, I’ve been taking stock of my life as a businesswoman/media person. Although early on I met some pretty rough characters who displayed bad sales ethics, later I was lucky enough to find great mentors who taught me the right way.

Having been involved in some pretty tough negotiations through the years, I learned to strive for win/wins and make sure I over-delivered on my services afterward. Which of the following would be the right reason(s) for doing so?

  • Karma
  • It will improve your bottom line
  • It helps you sleep at night
  • You wouldn’t want to be caught doing something shady (embarrassment)
  • It feels good
  • Your reputation is important to you
  • Dishonesty is a sin

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #209

24 Jan 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

I just received an email promoting a new show on Netflix. The ad read, “In an 18th-century North America, ruthless trappers and entrepreneurs fight to wrest control of the fur trade from the mighty Hudson’s Bay Company.”

This is nothing new. Ruthless entrepreneurs. They are heartless beings who lie, cheat and steal their way through business. Look, we are all human. There are moments when each and every one of us has to make a decision as to which road to take: the high or the low.

My concern is that today, we seem to be living in a world where lying is OK; as long as you ‘fess up afterward and apologize, everything will be peachy-dandy from there on in — new fresh start and all.

Be very careful. These snakes in the grass defend themselves and apologize; then they go on being who they were to begin with, ethically speaking. When you have an opportunity to take the high road, please do so — and reconsider your relationships with those who don’t.
