Choose virtue over deceit. It is important to avoid relegating the company’s founding principles to the ‘About Us’ page of the website. Instead, living them is necessary for guiding in a decision-making process, shaping the company’s culture, and connecting with customers. Entrepreneurs have to make tough choices every day. No matter the decision you are about to make, whether cutting costs or investing in a new market, the founding principles should be the bedrock that should help you to make better choices that gives you a competitive advantage.
