Corporate Carnivores-Let the Haters Hate
I know you have heard the phrase, “Let the haters hate,” but that is not how it works in the real world. See, The world is filled with either victims or victors: the hunters or the hunted.

They can be easy to spot but adept at hiding in plain sight. To survive as a victor amongst them, you must learn how to identify and neutralize them in your life.
