Follow the leader-Who do you want to follow-Think before you answer

followBe careful who you follow

This does not apply to Twitter or Facebook. Although, following the wrong people on these platforms could get you in trouble, it’s not likely. I’m talking about the real world, brick & mortar, face-to-face, or whatever you want to call it.

Last Friday evening, I watched the TV Special on ABCTruth and Lies: The Family Manson. This made me think about choosing the right people to follow as role models. Granted, Charles Manson is not exactly a role model, but the people in his crime family thought he was God.

When you follow someone, here’s what can happen

The people who followed Charles Manson ended up with life sentences in prison.

The people who followed Richard Scrushy when he was the CEO of HealthSouth ended up with 5 to 10 year sentences in prison.

The people who followed Jeffrey Skilling, former CEO of the Enron Corporation, ended up with much longer sentences in prison.

Finally, the people who follow Bill Gates, co founder of Microsoft, end up in the top 5 on the Fortune 500 list.

Be careful who you follow.
