Are you selling yourself out to make money? In the pursuit of a quick buck or the almighty dollar it can be easy to lose focus on what is right and wrong because there are so many “gray areas”.
I come in contact with a lot of internet marketers and have been quite surprised at the moral codes they are willing to bend to make more money. These range from going into chat rooms pretending to be a young girl asking the guys to sign up for a dating site (using his affiliate link) to see “her” photos. To stealing other people’s ebooks off clickbank. To selling products that go against their religious or moral beliefs.
I understand the strong desire to make a living to support your family. However, there are things that are more important than money.
Honesty and Integrity are not things we hear a lot about these days. People striving to live this way are often thought of as “prude” and of course the “nice guy always finishes last” right?
What do you do if someone asks you to work on a project that pays well, but is completely against your beliefs?
This is just a post for you and more importantly for myself to always stand up for our beliefs. Even if that means we miss an “opportunity” or two in the process.
The anonymous nature of being on the internet does not lend itself to the man in the mirror or the man upstairs. Remember that in all your endeavors and business ventures.
