Becareful what you say, and who you follow

Recently I came in contact with a rather interesting situation. I won't go into details or mention who was involved, but there were at least 3 or 4 handling a rather rude and unprofessional person. What she didn't know is all her emails were being circulated to even more close business friends that were somewhat involved. Of course there are 2 sides to every story, but when you see how the story unfolds in emails you tend to be able to form educated opinions on the situation and each person involved.

What's worse is this person handles a large networking group, where the members have no idea how this person has behaving or what her real motives are. It's possible these members could be hurt because of programs they are involved with being associated in this person.

So anyway, becareful how you handle yourself even in a one on one email - you never know who may see it, or who it may be passed to. Also, watch who you follow. Don't believe everything they tell you just because they have a lot of "followers". Do your own research and seek advice from many different experts, especially when the "leader" has something to gain from their advice to you.
