Personal Responsibility: Time to Step Up

"To hazard much to get much has more of avarice than wisdom."

William Penn

17th century British religious leader

We live in a time when business is much maligned, finance in particular, for having been too greedy, seemingly wrecking the economy as a result.


What is "business" if not individual sellers and buyers of goods and services. Without us individuals, is "business" anything other than buildings full of empty desks?


Yes, but let's not lay it off on some abstract such as "business". No, it was, is and will always be, we individuals whether we are acting in our professional or personal lives.

If we don't like the way things are, we can change them, starting with ourselves.


  1. Thanks for the reminder. It is easy to forget that "business" is really people.

  2. Business, people, it doesn't matter, just semantic BS.

    They screwed us need to be rgulated

  3. Just out of curiosity Anonymous, who exactly is "they"?
