The Dangerous Type
Dangerous Type, the 80s song by The Cars, inspired this one. I’m not a big Cars fan, but it got me thinking again about how important it is to set up the right values and principles for your business and avoid some pitfalls later.
When you’re feeling down or defeated, you’re more susceptible to the dangerous types. It can be difficult to see them coming sometimes. If you’re one of those with a keen eye and ear for users and selfish con artists, consider yourself fortunate. But far too many business owners, newbies especially, start relationships with trust that hasn’t been earned, yet.
Good news is…people show you who they are over time. Even a dangerous type.
But you gotta keep your eyes and ears open. Eventually you can develop a sort of sixth sense. Your radar will beep when the dangerous types get close. But it takes practice.
And…when you’re clear about what your values and principles are, the dangerous types will tend to avoid you and your business. They’ll see you can’t be sidetracked by fast talk and something twinkly.
So, as you move forward, take your time. Remember: “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.”
Time can reveal red flags. Never ignore red flags. But if you do get involved (or are involved) with a dangerous type, on any level, use your gift of goodbye.
Don’t be concerned with their feelings, just stand up for yourself. You deserve it.
