Quote of the Day

Many years ago, a friend of mine was working for a retailer and foolishly did something dishonest. The result was that he lost his job and damaged his reputation in the process. Only when he began to realise how much damage he’d done to his reputation did he begin to realise how foolish he’d been. Damaging your reputation can have serious consequences and you can often feel the impact of that for many years after the original indiscretion. My message today is simple; protect and value your reputation. It is one of the most important commodities you have to offer. Whether in employment or self-employed you will be judged on your reputation. Gain a bad reputation and you will be judged harshly.
