In This Chapter
Keeping in mind family and business problems don’t mix
Understanding blaming others won’t cut it
Realising sleeping with the boss is a recipe for disaster
Understanding your behaviour sets the tone
Making the tough decisions now
Knowing that honesty is the best policy
Y ou may have read about, or even encountered during your working career, the bad boss, the moody boss, the uninspiring boss, the psychopathic boss, and the boss who won’t spend any money, except on themselves. A little self-reflection goes a long way if you wish to avoid becoming one of those bosses in your own small business. Buy yourself one of those really large mirrors and remember to have a good hard look at yourself occasionally. In this chapter, I describe the things that you most definitely should not do at work.
