I feel like I've been having a consistent conversation lately with so many people about the problem of dishonesty in our industry. It really makes me sad and I know this may not be a popular post but I feel the need to share it.
Without a doubt I've seen that openness and honesty is really the only way to succeed and I've tried (admitedly giving too much disclosure at times) to live a very open and completely honest and sincere life/business.
The companies (and people) that I support are all companies I truly believe in and I believed in them before I began talking about them...and I've declined to speak on behalf of companies and products that I don't believe in and It's been hard to watch as I see people sell their souls for products and companies just for a little cash even when they know and admit that these are not the best out there.
Please - if you're giving recommendations...if you're a leader...if you have influence over people's decisions then you have a huge responsibility to make sure what you're selling is actually going to help them.
Thanks for listening and let's all hold each other to a higher standard of openness and honesty and let's make this industry and better place.
