Why Integrity is Key for Success in Business

Integrity Means

There are a few key reasons why integrity in business is so important for success in business:

– Personal values such as integrity build trust with customers and clients. If you’re known for being trustworthy in your personal and professional life, people will want to do business with you because of your strong moral principles.

– Business ethics create a positive reputation. A good business environment and good business practices are essential for any business owner, and integrity is a big part of that.

– Ethical companies promote integrity and create a positive work environment. Business leaders with business integrity and personal integrity create job satisfaction within the leadership team. — The customer experience in the entire organization with moral standards and a strong sense of taking responsibility affect decision making as promises to employees and customer relationships allow for high ethical standards.

Building a successful business takes time, hard work, and dedication. But if you want your business to really thrive, you need to make sure that integrity is at the heart of everything you do.

Sustainable Business

The same goes for your employees. If you want to create a positive work environment and keep morale high, you need to be honest with your team. They need to know that you’re going to treat them fairly, and that you have their best interests at heart.

A company with integrity is also a sustainable business. Sustainability is all about creating long-term value, and that’s only possible if you have a solid foundation of trust and integrity.

If you want your business to be successful, you need to make sure that integrity is at the core of everything you do.

Ethical Approach

Building a foundation of integrity will help you in the long run, because it’s that foundation that will keep your business standing when things get tough. People are more likely to support a business that they know is built on solid values.


Moreover, an ethical approach to business is the only way to ensure that you can sleep at night. If you’re constantly worried about getting caught in a lie or taking advantage of someone, it’s going to take a toll on your mental and physical health. But if you know that you’re doing everything the

Business Decisions

Honesty is the best policy, as they say, and that’s especially true in business. Your business partners need to trust you, and the only way to build that trust is to have core value. They need to know that you’re going to give them the best business context or service possible, and that you’re not going to try to take advantage of them.

GROCO.com is a proud sponsor of The American Dreams Show.



The American Dreams show was the brainchild of Alan Olsen, CPA, MBA. It was originally created to fill a specific need; often inexperienced entrepreneurs lacked basic information about raising capital and how to successfully start a business.

Alan sincerely wanted to respond to the many requests from aspiring entrepreneurs asking for the information and introductions they needed. But he had to find a way to help in which his venture capital clients and friends would not mind.

The American Dreams show became the solution, first as a radio show and now with YouTube videos as well. Always respectful of interview guest’s time, he’s able to give access to individuals information and inspiration previously inaccessible to the first-time entrepreneurs who need it most.

They can listen to venture capitalists and successful business people explain first-hand, how they got to where they are, how to start a company, how to overcome challenges, how they see the future evolving, opportunities, work-life balance and so much more.

American Dreams discusses many topics from some of the world’s most successful individuals about their secrets to life’s success. Topics from guest have included:

Creating purpose in life / Building a foundation for their life / Solving problems / Finding fulfillment through philanthropy and service / Becoming self-reliant / Enhancing effective leadership / Balancing family and work…

Thanksgiving week and gratitude

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year because it helps me to remember the many things I have to be grateful for: my family, relatively good health, friends, job, religious freedoms (I should probably use more often), and too many other blessings to list. Not to mention the Thanksgiving meal, mashed potatoes,…
