The world of business has grown and evolved by leaps and bounds in the last several decades. Things have changed nearly overnight in terms of how business is conducted, technology advances, how products are manufactured, marketed and transported and so forth. Just about every aspect of business has undergone many changes in recent times. The one thing that has not changed is how much weight good people carry. Character is a big deal, always has been and always will be. Those good people running good businesses who clearly have a solid character are the ones who will succeed.
Sometimes the way things work in the world makes it seem like good people and good character are not considered important anymore. This is far from the truth in that character and honestly ultimately do bring about more business and more positive word of mouth from good people. Good people succeed in life because other people value their honesty and hard work. Most good people do not rely on what others think of them, but on what their conscience and their beliefs tell them. This allows good people to create good businesses that thrive due to positive word of mouth and customer satisfaction.
