It’s too common for businesses owners to think that their employees are going to accept their bullshit. They tell you a story to get you in the door and expect you to stay after it turns out to be a lie.
I don’t know if it’s only here in Israel. But you can’t do that. If you found someone who’s good and he’s bringing you a pile of cash you can’t treat him like an idiot. Otherwise, you will lose him. And finding a replacement is so much harder than you think. If you set the terms you have to be man enough to follow them.
