When Employees Lie, Cheat and Steal

When Employees Lie, Cheat and Steal
When you've invited someone into your business—your home—and they betray you, it sucks. There's really no other way to say it. We've both been burned. Does it affect how you do business? Does it affect how you trust people?

It's difficult to find out when one of your employees lies, cheats and steals. It's even more difficult to pick up the pieces after letting that employee go. This week, we share our experiences with employee betrayal. Cleaning up the mess from a disloyal employee hurts, but it can make your team smarter and stronger at the same time.



Before you say "I'm not a tequila drinker," try Paloma. Refreshing with all the right notes of tequila and lime juice, this drink is an upscale version of the classic margarita. And the Himalayan sea salt around the rim adds a nice, rosy touch.


  • 2 oz. Espolon Blanco Tequila
  • 1 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • 1 oz. club soda
  • Himalayan salt
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  1. Moisten the outer rim of a highball glass with a lime wedge and coat lightly with Himalayan salt. Fill with ice.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, grapefruit, lime juice, and simple syrup.
  3. Shake well and strain into the ice-filled glass.
  4. Stir in club soda and garnish with a lime wedge.
