Entrepreneurs start a business for many reasons, but most are driven by money (unless, of course, you start a non-profit.) Here’s a question for you: Will you do anything for money (or to increase profits)?

@Ivanwalsh - agreed. I realized that I need to manage better online friends. I once befriend many "creative" internet marketers and online money makers, and I got this nickname by a critical-but-fair online forum moderator: "Link pimp" - ouch... and yes, getting rid that rep is not easy...

@Randymorrow - that's an inspiring story - I can relate to what you've experienced when I run a type of online business that makes good money but questionable on ethics (not adult niche, but I did grey hat money making activities - agreed, it didn't felt good, after all...)

You’re judged by the friends you keep both offline and online.

One thing to consider when partnering with others is how this will affect your reputation - which you can’t buy back.

NO. A few years back I had a client whom I was ready to fire. I did not agree nor like their ethics. Money was tight, I was going to have a five figure paycheck from the sale, and so I gave in. When the sale was final, I felt FILTHY. I went back to my wife, looked her in the eyes, and very calmly said "please NEVER ask me to do that again". Then I went up and took a very long shower. Money is not worth your integrity. (I've fired two other clients since then, and I felt GREAT when I walked away).
