This event occurred in my personal life, but many times it can happen to small business owners and entrepreneurs. We can become the targets of an unhappy person who tries to destroy our credibility because of a personal vendetta we never knew existed.
I want to share with you what happened to me this week. At some point in your life, you will run across someone who is never happy with your decisions or actions, whatever they are. People will either express their dissatisfaction to you directly or tell everyone else and eventually you will hear about it from a friend or neighbor. Normally, it doesn’t bother me until someone intentionally tries to tear down my reputation.
Call me old school because I still believe your word and reputation are how people perceive you. If someone has a problem with me, I try to handle it like an adult and find out what I did or didn’t do. Many times, it’s just a miscommunication and a conversation can make it right.
My biggest pet peeve is being blamed for something that I never did. Why do people feel the need to stir the pot? Newsflash – Pot stirring is not welcome or tolerated in my world. Women need to support and uplift each other. I will never understand or support the need for women to tear each other down.
