Business Etiquette

Upon receiving a rather rude email the other day for no valid reason, I felt compelled to write a blog about manners and etiquette in business.

I have personally found that more and more people are willing to be rude and obnoxious via email without thinking about the consequences of what they are typing. So, I would like to put forth an idea..... imagine that one day you become the president of the USA or any country for that matter. Now imagine being scrutinized by the public which results in revealing past emails that were nasty to past business contacts. You would be judged by the way you deal with people and how you may deal with key contacts such as foreign leaders or the public at large.

You really never know who is going to one day see your emails and how you conduct yourself in business so my advice is to maintain your personal PR with everyone you deal with. Be polite, cordial and friendly. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Grant others respect. These points will take you a long way in life and business. Hopefully this blog article reaches those who need it most.

Warm regards,
