Assume you are a Social worker in a rural community, that you are serving on a church committee, and that one of your clients joins this committee. What do you do?

    Why not welcome that client and then be sure that your business relationship remains separate from the church committee.

    Again, socializing is fine IF you can keep the business relationship separate.

    If that client is the ONLY cement contractor in the community, wouldn't you prefer helping a community member? He has a monopoly but might never forgive your going outside the community!
