As 2020 winds down (finally) it is always a great time to reflect. I am thankful for my friends, my family, my colleagues and my clients. I am thankful for those that risk their lives every day to make our way of life possible.
When I check my stats, I am thankful for my readers and my listeners. I am humbled that so many of you take the time to listen and read a topic near and dear to my heart and so important to our industry and to society – ethics
But I realize that not everyone has time every week to read the blog, so I wanted to recap the five most popular ethics blog posts of 2020 and the five most popular ethics podcasts of 2020. Surprisingly, there was no overlap this year.
So if you missed one – check it out. I look forward to continuing to bring you high quality ethics content in 2021. I really and truly believe it is going to be a good year.
