Panther had several business mentors over the years of being an entrepreneur. They had all helped her greatly in handling the ropes of being new into the world of business and without them, she knew, things wouldn’t be nearly as great as they were right now. As the years passed she lost contact with a few of those mentors but she continued to follow their teachings. One evening she realized that she had turned into the mentor after answering a question from a fellow entrepreneur. Now instead of following in her mentors footsteps she was the one mentoring fellow entrepreneurs and being a role model for them.

As easy as it would have been to blame it on someone below him or claim the technology had malfunctioned, Dove knew he had to take responsibility. He called up the client to let him know about the mistake. While she was disappointed in what had been done she knew it was just that – a mistake. Dove thanked her and promised to fix the error by the morning. For Dove, telling the truth was much more ethical than tossing out a lie.
