Good Business with Clay Vaughan
When Integrity Meets Reality with James Robertson
Show Notes

When I first started in business, I wanted it to maintain my integrity, regardless of the cost. For me, that meant seeing the world in black and white. It didn’t take me long to realize that there had to be room for gray area, and the real test of my integrity came when I had to live in that gray area when the decisions weren’t clear cut.

In today’s episode, I asked commercial real estate broker, James Robertson, with JLL, to join me. He helped me navigate one of the most difficult times I’ve had in business. When COVID hit and cash ran dry, the bills were still due.

Main things we'll be talking about: 

- Ethics of juggling a full-time job and your side project

- Key to keeping your clients from leaving

- How to navigate the gray area in business while maintaining your values

- When and how to get your own office space as a growing business
