I have worked in various businesses ranging from Biotechnology M&A activities to a big retail chain in Denmark. Besides that I have been running several companies on my own in and outside of Denmark. I am currently working on launching a internet project focused on Latin America.
I have specialized myself in business development, strategic business planning and organizational analysis.
BUT, as mentioned by Mike, trust is only gained if given. I believe that it is a question of finding the right people for your business culture, and saying that you would also need to screen people before giving them the job, so you don`t end up with a convicted child molester in a kindergarten.
Inspired by "The Speed Of Trust" by Stephen M. R. Covey and a recent study in Denmark I just posted a short note on the Human Resources phenomena Lifebalance. Maybe not everybody in here are already familiar with the term, but the article describes shortly what it is all about, and there are some inspirational tips rounding the whole thing off.
Anyway, I wanted to check if any of you people have already tried using these techniques in your startups, or maybe you worked in company with these strategies earlier on? I`m eager to hear about earlier experiences and opinions for future articles. Please don`t hesitate to drop me a note !

Hi dear SUN friends!
I just wrote a short article about negotiation on my blog and thought that this might be interesting for some of you in here. Let me know if you have any comments, personal experience etc.http://thebusinessupdater.com/?p=31
Sorry it doesn`t. I`m happy if you`re happy doing this, and hopefully you have loads of referrals so you make tons of cash. I would personally never join anything like this, but leave this aside. My original curiosity was about the design of these homepages, and why they never have much information. Cool that you only want serious people on-board, but if someone is willing to give you a $1000 I guess that makes this person serious enough? So if it is that good, why not put all information available at first? I mean you do want to make as many referrals as possible, right? And in creating something that looks less scam`ish you might be able to generate even more cash for yourself....
What happens is that practically no one does this (even the site you just showed me does not tell anything about what you are going to sell, just how much money you can make). Was is the explanation? If you want people to pay $1000 and hereafter make all the friends and relatives do the same, they might want to know what they are going to sell?
The thing is that you want to sell me (or another person) something, so you would want to make it easy for me. On the internet you have one shot, and sometimes only a few seconds of the users time before the user is on his way to a new website.
If it really is suck a good business, that`s legal and works as easy as 1-2-3, why is it that the real information is never available on these websites, unless you sign up with all your contact info? Please explain, cause I`m really curious about it.
