Integrity at it’s finest – or ahem…is it?To be honest – as my husband and I manage and own two small home based businesses. And have dealt with many a people… some of the hardest to deal with, are sadly those who carry the title “Christian” {A Christ Follower.} Let me put it out there bluntly but sweetly.

We shouldn’t be leaving a cloud of black smoke or a sour mouth after doing business with someone. But rather leave a sweet and gentle and loving way of Christ, filling the air with grace and love – something desired by everyone. We’re being watched and we are to be examples of CHRIST as we claim the the title “Christ Follower.”   Some Pointers when Doing Business with Small Businesses {or large!}   PROMPTLY PAY – small business owners normally need a certain percentage of their sales to purchase supplies and such at a certain date.
