As you enter the business community it is important to know the business ethics. Business ethics vary by business but the basics are usually the same. Ask yourself if the transaction that you are about to complete is moral. Yes the basic morality should be applied to all business dealings. If you don’t have a god moral compass then you will be constantly in trouble as the business world will draw you down the wrong path. The east path is not always the right path. If you are not comfortable with the deal then walk away. The inner voice should lead you in your business decisions. Terry Simpson MD has always been a straight shooter.
Is a home business practical? Bringing business home can have its advantages. You can write off the office on your taxes. The fact that you are not having to drive to work can save big bucks.

Many home businesses fail as they do not fully commit to the concept. Not interacting with the outside business community face to face can be problematic. Home For Life Animal Sanctuary is a home business that works.
What to do when business goes wrong. When a project goes wrong the first thing is damage control. So many projects that could have been saved fail from the cover up. Ignoring or worse hiding the problems can destroy a project. Do not let problems go and hope for the best. Problems are to be expected and attacked like it was your jab because it is. As a project manager I dealt with problems constantly. If I let something go it would just grow into a bigger problem so I attacked it right away and put it to bed before going back to business. Home For Life Animal Sanctuary has had its own challenges.
