The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

What's With All the Groupon (GRPN) Investor Hatred: A solid investment for our times

Written by John Travis Holt, editor in chief on Thursday, 01 March 2012 20:26.

The only sure thing in that equation is that they will inevitably blame some external factor, instead of taking responsibility for the choices they make. Bad choices which lead a business down the path of self destruction are most likely based on a get rich quick scheme and greed, instead of taking the time to build a quality product.

And I thought this information might be useful to other minority entrepreneurs.
