Nuggets of Knowledge  

Reputation & Character

"Reputation is what people think you are. Character is who you really are. Take care of your character and your reputation will take care of itself."    

I remember asking my grandfather for advise growing up and he replied "Do you want to be liked or do your want to be respected." I asked "can't I be both". His answer-"Not always"!

This was a hard lesson to learn, because most of us prefer to make the easy choice- to be liked. When your character and values are tested, being respected is more challenging.  


Thank you to those that have already shown your support and reserve your ad space, we are truly grateful. You are the reason we continue to grow with each edition.

I look forward to becoming more involved in this community.
