    Awesome story!! Actually, I think I will pass this on to a few who live in cul-de-sacs with major geese issues. It may work if a few neighbors or ALL of them utilize the gator heads. Who would have 'thunk.' Well obviously, your boss did, kudos for thinking outside of the box. I was cracking up about the geese stepping on the string to let others cross over- again, who would have 'thunk?!"

    Thank you, I just needed a laugh. Great analogy. The solution is often so simple that it doesn´t cross our minds.

    @David Chislett you touch on a topic that I find amazing. Entrepreneurship is glamorized as a magical skill, that once possessed, you live happily ever after. I have always seen the ultimate highs matched by equal lows.

    One perspective I have maintained is the 80/20 rule. For every dollar you earn, twenty cents worth of trial and tribulation will be attached. Whether working for yourself or for someone else this holds true.

    Small Business does require a level of entrepreneurship and so does working for someone else. If you earn, personally, north of 150k it comes with problems as well as successes.

    Small business offers the opportunity for control of one's destiny. Even after thirty years of small business I am still fascinated that our firm has created a service that someone is willing to pay money to receive.

    The battlefield of small business is a worthy endeavor. We don't just work on a piece of the enterprise but operate the whole thing.

    We will fight somewhere to provide for ourselves and families, choosing small business was my choice of battlefield. Corporate America seemed way to intricate to maneuver through. Lows come with either of the choices, but small business offers the chance to rally the troops, customers and your entrepreneur self to meet the challenges. Corporate America, well....you hope your supervisor finds their entrepreneur spirit and does the same.

    Your post rings true.

    Character is a very difficult subject. What/who one becomes is based on some very fundamental sets of moral values. In growing a business do you feel that your product or service "deserves" a chance or has it "earned" a chance. Two very different concepts in an entrepreneurs character. Deserves would imply a set of values that you have done everything right and the customer should give the product or service a try. Where earned would show that you have considered all of the customers needs/positions and you see the product or service fitting. Win-Win. Without common shared values character will always be a concern. What is high character to one, is stupidity to another. These are very basic points to illustrate that character is only a concern when more than one person is in the room. We now have the ability to compare values and its outward appearance of character. Character is the outward expression of your core values. What are your core values no matter what the situation?

    #2 While a lot of people made money from unethical behavior in 2008 there were even more people who lost money. It's up to the people who have money at stake to make sure they are doing work with ethical people. If you're happy with getting ill gotten gains, remember they'll turn around and do the same to you.

    I'm a big fan of CEO Space too - Class of 12 -11.

    #1 I would have liked to respond that those who attain profits in an unethical manner will have short-lived success. Unfortunately, as 2008 illustrated, plenty of people were able to attain a lot of profit using unethical means. :/ One day ....

    I've been promoting this idea for decades. But, until we develop and implement a metric for character, profits will always win.
