A: Hi. I am Angelina Neglia, and I am sitting here with Scott MacDonald, author of Saving Investa, How an Ex Factory Worker Helped Save an Iconic Australian Company. In the Book, Scott shares 25 lessons learned from his long career, which ranged from factory worker, sweeping streets, washing dishes, and being CEO of multiple companies.
Lesson seven is: Never Stay Where You Are Uncomfortable Ethically. But… what if you need the money?
S: Angie, most business people I’ve dealt with through the years are honest and reputable, but there’re always some who aren’t. You must be comfortable ethically with where you spend most of your time. If you’re in the wrong place, it’s time to move on. If you stay for the money, you’re prostituting yourself. Move on. Keep your values and ethics. You will find other opportunities wherever you go. Good people always rise to the top and will find better opportunities elsewhere.
