Kevin Willett explains that when is comes to money and business, honesty really is the best policy.
Have you ever told someone that their check was in the mail when it wasn’t? My question to you is why did you lie about it? Why didn’t you simply tell them the truth that you were waiting on some checks to come in, and as soon as they did you would email them and let them know that you have sent them their payment? When you lie about simple things like this, it makes it really hard to trust you and refer you to others. Sometimes it is not just the lie. What if the company you hadn’t paid yet was relying on that money to meet their own bills, or to hit a budget goal? Being able to know that it wasn’t actually on the way may have helped them make other plans. Please remember this tip next time you are tempted to lie to your business partners. Honesty really is the best policy in business.
