The last few days have been eye-opening for me, to say the least. I have learned a HUGE lesson and one that has not only affected myself, but two of my close friends. I believed in a person to follow through with their commitment on a business deal and they didn’t follow up on their end of the bargain. In fact, they gave misinformation about their qualifications and were untruthful in what they said they would do for us. I am beyond dissatisfied with this type of mindset in a person who claims to be capable of building something they said they went to school for and yet show no remorse for the negative end results they created themselves. This type of ‘business’ needs to be called out and I am just about over-the-top pissed off to do it. ~ Please make sure that when you pay up-front for a service that you read the fine print that comes along with the 60 plus pages in the iron-clad contract. Make sure that the person offering their ‘services’ actually has YOUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART. If they don’t, run. In a nutshell, here’s what happened to me: I had an old website that needed to be re-vamped and modernized. I hired a friend who said she could do everything I needed. Unfortunately, during the launch of my new site, she didn’t realize that she amputated my SEO in the process. She didn’t even know what that was. WHAT?? I have been writing for 8 years, been read by people all over the world; thousands of readers each month, and in one day my site became pretty much invisible. Just like that. ~ Lesson learned… how many times do we all say that to ourselves? On the flip side, I am now working with a professional who took zero money down from me and is getting me back on track as we speak. In the very near future I will be highlighting his company in a blog so you can all benefit from his work ethic and commitment to ‘doing the right thing’. Isn’t this the way every business should be run? I think so…
Onward and Upward… Jana ( tomorrow I’ll focus on the oils, but thanks for letting me rant! )
