In their own quiet but powerful way, people do whatever they can to correct evil deeds. It may be as little as ignoring your next sales effort to as much as reporting you to the authorities - or even blowing your head off.

A wise businessperson acts benevolently, because they understand trust and loyalty developed by being good and fair paves the golden path of opportunity for years to come. With each decade, every dollar earned makes it easier because of goodwill, trust, and useful relationships created along the way.
