Publisher's Note
Frank Burns on “M*A*S*H” once declared, “It’s nice to be nice to the nice.”

Sally Glick, one of the captivating writers on our Bloggers Crew, posted a piece on Monday that really caught my eye. Titled On The Importance of Being Nice, her piece really hit home with me.

Sally mentioned that a business associate suggested to attendees, “While it is nice to be important, it is even more important to be nice.” I think most of us would rather work with clients, business partners, and co-workers who are “nice,” treating people with respect and courtesy. I venture to guess that most people would rather make $1,000 from a nice and pleasant client, than make $1,100 from a client who is a jerk. There’s typically a lot of angst and frustration associated with that extra $100. Agree? Disagree? Post your comments.
