Corporate lesson 1

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing
up her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of
arguing over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the
wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs
downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next
door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says,"I'll give
you 800 dollars to drop that towel that you have on."
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands
naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her 800
dollars and leaves.
Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps
back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back
to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?"
"It was Bob the next door neighbour," she replies. "Great," the
husband says, "did he say anything aboutthe 800 dollars he
owes me?"
Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining
to credit and risk in time with your stakeholders, you may be in
a position to prevent avoidable exposure
