A&E FEBRUARY 2018 • 45 Sales & Marketing someone else. That person should preferably be a lawyer or someone that is knowledge- able about the subject at hand. Failure to do so may have unintended consequences later. Also make sure that all of your business dealings are above board, do not show any favoritism or bias, and avoid conflicts of interest. If you can afford it, bring in an outside party to educate your employees about what is appropriate and not in the workplace. Even if you think you can't afford it, do it anyway. You can't afford the consequences of the problems you risk from an uneducated workforce. As the owner of the business, stay away from anything that may have even a slight whiff of being inappropriate. If you pass someone in the hallway and you think they look particularly nice today or smell better than normal, keep it to yourself. Resist the temptation of talking about it because everyone's ears and brains process messages differently. What may seem inno- cent and appropriate to one person, may be overtly offensive to another. Therefore, leave the entire issue alone and stay out of harm's way. DEFER TO EXPERTS In today's business environment, it is critical to hire a good attorney. Interview a few until you have someone that you feel you can trust. If you do not have someone in mind, it is not a bad idea to talk to other business owners and friends to see whom they use. Referrals are a great way to ensure that you find someone trustworthy and that you can connect with. Remember that this will be a long-term relationship, so make sure that this person is someone with whom you are compatible. Studio Workshop, Inc.
