Sunshine: Are you throwing the baby out with the bath water?

Crystal: Welcome to The Love of Business. I’m Crystal.

Sunshine: And I’m Sunshine. Let’s get to it.

Throwing the baby out with the bath water, now I don’t know exactly how this applies to business. But I know that a long time ago families would all bath in the same water and the baby was the last to, you know, get into the tub.

Crystal: Right.

Sunshine: So, they would always say don’t throw the baby out with the bath water because the water so gross by the time everybody, you know, had taken a bath. But how does this apply to business?

Crystal: So, let’s look at just your example. The baby is something good, right?

Sunshine: Yeah.

Crystal: Dirty water is something bad.

Sunshine: Yeah, nothing great.

Crystal: So, throwing the baby out with the bath water is when you throw something out bad and good at the same time.

Sunshine: I guess you don’t really want to do that.

Crystal: No, it is not a good strategy.

Sunshine: So, how do you filter out the bad to keep the good? I suppose you are going to go over that.

Crystal: We’ll talk about the strategies now. Some great strategies so that you don’t throw the baby out with the bath water is number one, do your research. Number two, assess risk. Number three, reframe your perspective.

Sunshine: Wow, those are really great tips, Crystal. Thank you for that.
