There are a lot of unethical businesses out there!

In this episode, I’m talking about an experience that I am currently going through with a dishonest, unethical IT company in, Sydney, who have proven themselves to be not only unprofessional, but also straight up destructive to my business and some of my clients.

The reason I share this story is so that I can hopefully help many of you to NOT get in the same situation yourselves. At the end of the day, it was completely avoidable and it’s caused a ridiculous amount much unnecessary grief.

The key takeaway’s from this podcast are:

  • Don’t go into business with someone, just because they’re mates.
  • Always insist on terms and conditions.
  • Always have a contract in place.
  • Stand up for what you believe.
  • Go legal if you have to.

This scenario is not yet over, so I’ll keep you posted on proceedings as they update.
