Ya know, he actually gets the credit for creating my alter ego Mr. Ripple.

When Your Integrity Is Attacked It's Important How You Respond
We all have been in those situations where someone has attacked as us. Maybe they mischaracterize something you've said. Maybe they've outright lied about your intentions. Maybe they are calling into question your integrity. How we respond in the moment is almost as important as to how we process it in private. Conflict is inevitable in both family, work and personal life. But understanding how to not give away all of your power and let your ego take over is hard. We dive into this very juicy topic as Steve shares a very personal situation he is going through right now. His perspective and his approach may just save you some heartache next time you find yourself faced with a similar situation. Let us know what you think of this and any of our episodes.
