Bad Business Decisions Can Cost More Than a Bad Hair Style

One of my favorite commercials is for Prego Italian sauce – the one where a woman shopping for groceries participates in a blind taste test and selects Prego over the spaghetti sauce she’s been buying her entire life. Afterwards, she wonders what other bad decisions she’s made over the years – like her Pat Benatar hair style in the 80s.

When it comes to spaghetti sauce – or bad hairstyles – we usually learn from our bad decisions and move on. When it comes to business, one bad choice can have a huge impact on revenues, productivity, and, even, your reputation.
