The Worst Rumor Ever Made about Me (story time)
How do you effectively confront people who are spreading negative rumors about you?
There is this girl at school, and we don't really get along. She keeps spreading rumors about me and people are turning against me. What should I do? Some people spread rumors as a way to intimidate others and gain status or popularity. But spreading rumors as a way to turn people against someone is a form of bullying — and it can have serious consequences for the person doing it. Spreading unkind gossip in person or online is not a decent or mature way to act.
Rumors are the spice of life; but rumors can have serious consequences for us. They can affect various aspects of our lives, including our personal, social, and professional life. Before we learn how to handle rumors, let us understand a little more about them. A rumor is the opposite of fact. A fact is verified piece of information supported by data whereas a rumor is an unverified piece of information, which is unsubstantiated by any data.

I have, and so has Jordan Harbinger, host of The Jordan Harbinger Show , a top-rated podcast with millions of downloads in its first weeks of launching. After years of building, things took a turn, and with it, a former partner set out to take him down. Similarly, years ago when I started Network Under 40, a close friend offered to help me get it off the ground. After a stint where she took time off for personal reasons, I shared with her my decision to continue to operate the company without her.
