When working in a small business there are many gray areas that you will encounter. They will test you morally and ethically. Here are some things I've learned along the way.
1. Stick to your gut. If it doesn't feel
right then don't do it!
2. If you can't seem to trust someone get rid of them immediately, it will only hurt you in the long run.
3. Keep your reputation in tact. You never want to spread bad word of mouth throughout the community.
4. Be good. This is a great business and personal tip. Just simply be a good person.
Sometimes staying on the good side isn't as profitable as crossing over to the bad. In my opinion I would much rather be poor than sacrifice my integrity.
