Is your business success at risk? Ethics are usually the first casualty as Ego raises its ugly head. Have you begun to drift over to the dark side?

Great advice Jackie AND entertaining. Great end to any series. I haven't read it all, but I will be sure to back up and read the rest. ;-)

Hi Jackie,

In the online world I do think there are a lot of scammers. Perhaps they did not intend to be when they started out but their lack of expertise and skills have lead a number up the proverbial garden path.

I agree about ego and I would add that it is also a lack of self confidence that leads people over to the dark side.

Good series Jackie.

Thanks Susan

Always appreciate your thoughtful contribution.

It's a pity so many people get burned at the consequence of others experimentation and egos.

Lots to think about Jackie!

Sometimes there may be an analogy here with local politicians - the ones who go into it young & idealistic, but soon believe they can do no wrong. Sure, in their case it's power corrupting them, but there's a parallel with business big-shots who think their $h!+ doesn't stink. The ol' "What's good for General Motors is good for the country" bit (boy, I WISH that guy was still alive to hear GM beg for Gubmen money in October, 2008 - when he said it, GM grossed more than most Countries).

Can definately see the parallels with politics, as I can in a number of industries.

Success corrupts without doubt. It just depends in the indivudals internal compass and intent.

If there was ever a story of a major fall GM is right up there.

Thanks for your input Duncan, much appreciated.
