Not sure if this is in the right section, but anyway
I have been discussing on another thread about trust and the ramifications of trusting and not trusting people.
I would genuinly like to trust people and am terribly offended when people don't trust me. However as a small business owner I find it nearly impossible to trust people as it would be my livlihood if they let me down.
Is there a middle ground? Are there ways of making things more secure?
Are there ways of "telling" whether someone is trustworthy
We were let down badly by someone we went to church with so I don't think it is an issue that it purely business realted
Not really Cam - on the business front, I try and ask for money up front - but there are always reasons why an exception should be made.....and I sit there on tender hooks waiting to see if I'm going to be paid.
On a more personal level - I tend to expect nothing and I'm never disappointed and can be pleasently surprised
