Someone has just asked you to go to something. Maybe it’s a holiday party. Maybe it’s a networking event. Maybe it’s a community service club. Maybe it’s a fundraiser. You will be representing your business at this event. And the event isn’t one that you want to go to – not because you generally dislike events (that’s a whole different podcast!) but because the event doesn’t align with your values.
