I am appalled and disheartened at how some online “entrepreneurs” act. Would they behave like this if the computer screen veil was eliminated? Hell no.
As much as technology has helped us, I think it’s given some people “brass balls” to be dicks.
Blunt? Maybe. True? YES!
Let me give you a few examples…
One business coach goes MIA leaving all her clients in the lurch, not just for 30 days, but for four months. She is making promises she doesn’t intend to keep, although taking their monthly payments on the regular. WTF?
Another entrepreneur scheduling a consult, not once but three times, claiming health concerns as to why she couldn’t make it. You show up, she goes MIA. And then she blocks you from her FB account when you reach out and say, “Is everything okay?”
And yet another online “superstar” who has been shouting from the rooftops about her six-figure lifestyle and income when just three weeks ago, she told her colleagues she was flat broke.

Folks, it all comes down to integrity.
Clearly, some of us have it, and some of us don’t.
To those of you who think being online means you can treat your clients and colleagues like shit and can take advantage of people’s big dreams…think again.
Karma’s a bitch. And what comes around goes around.
And for those of you out there that are doing things right. That have integrity. Who show up. Who provide amazing value. Keep going. Stay the course.
And IGNORE these asshats that are giving our industry a bad name.
Prove them wrong. Bring your heart. Show up with soul. And exceed everyone’s expectations.
[Tweet “Ignore the asshats. Have integrity. Provide incredible value and exceed everyone’s expectations.”]
We need more people like YOU.
What are your thoughts here? What kind of craziness have you experienced or seen?
